Hearts and Lines

Hi lovelies. We are back from the most amazing city break in Prague. It really is one of the best places to visit and I cannot recommend it enough. We walked, talked, ate and of course indulged in the odd Czech beer. Just perfect :-).

I had no idea how these nails would turn out as these are two new colours from my ever growing untrieds collection, however I have to say I am very pleased with the results.

To create this manicure I started with a base colour of Models Own Raspberry Crush. This really is a gorgeous shade of red/pink and dries to a very high shine (swatch below). I then used a coat of Models Own Pearly Queen to create a subtle colour shifting effect. So pretty in real life but a little camera shy I am afraid.

Finally I stamped this simple little hearts and lines design from BM11 using Konad White. It wasnt my intention to create something that looks so much like a Valentines manicure but after our wonderful few days away the romantic in me is being reflected in my nail art.

Such a shame that it is time to get back into the usual routine at work but I have decided my mantra to get me through the day will be... I work to live, not live to work.

I am saving for our next holiday already.
