Black | Models Own x WAH Nails Nail Art Pen
Pink | Models Own x WAH Nails Nail Art Pen
I’m loving this nail combo! I painted all my nails white and then half of the nails orange, before drawing leopard print with the nail art pen. I decided on the neon pink heart accent nail, just because it was new (along with the other Models Own bits) and I couldn’t wait to use it! I’m so impatient. Story of my life!
I can’t seem to just paint my nails one colour anymore— it has to have a design or some kind of glittery top coat. And I’m such a sucker for pink, especially when it’s bedazzled!
I do love a bit of leopard print, especially on the nails— it doesn’t have to be too precise, which is great, if like me, you suck at painting the hand that you would usually write with! My right hand always looks dodgy.
Simply paint your base coat, followed by your colour of choice, then ‘splodge’ (technical term…) the colour you want to use as the centre of the leopard spot over your nails. Leave it to dry, then dot around the spots with black (or another colour!) and finish with a top coat to seal it all in.
Purple sherbert is just one of the three free shades from Ciaté, available with the July edition of Marie Claire magazine. It’s a lovely shade of lilac, similar to Berry Ice Cream from Barry M, although at £9, Ciaté ‘paint pots’ retail at 3 times the price! I was a bit annoyed at first, because the coverage was so sheer and watery after just one coat, but it dried quickly, allowing you to add more as needed. I went with three coats, but could possibly do with four! That doesn’t bother me too much as it was a freebie, but if I’d paid £9 for this, I’d be bitterly disappointed! This is the first time I’ve tried anything from Ciaté, but I’d be interested to try their other colours, to see whether there’s a bit of inconsistency between them and it’s just this shade. I hope so, as they have some gorgeous shades, not to mention the cute pots themselves, adorned with a bow!
Also available with the magazine, are Jelly Bean (pink) and Bon Bon (taupe). It doesn’t look like any of the three shades are available on their website, so if you like them, grab a copy of Marie Claire, pronto!
