Pretty Purple Nails and Filigree

Good evening lovelies

This is just a quick post to show you the nails I am wearing to go away with work for two days :(. This is traumatic for many reasons... I hate being away from Mr LiPP overnight, I will miss our puppies and of course I will have no access to nail related products! On the plus side, I get to wear these pretty nails for two days and also I will be with my little sister as we work for the same company. Road trip anyone ;) ?!

I started with a base of two coats of Barry M Indigo, which is a really rich blurple and alternates between navy and purple depending on the light source. I then added one coat of my new Color Club Total Mystery. Its a stunning blue colour containing glass flecks in pink and purple. The sparkle was a little camera shy but I will post some swatches of this next time the sun shines as it really is pretty.

For the stamping I reached for two of my all time favourites - Filigree from plate BM 201 and Butterflies from plate 307 using sparkly Barry M Silver Foil. Top coat Seche Vite as always.

By the time you read this post we will be on our Sisters Road Trip. No doubt eating as many almod croissants as we can, not to mention munching family bag size packets of crisps and listening to the new Pink album on repeat - we have tickets to see Pink next year and are so excited!!

I will be so glad to get home to Mr LiPP and the puppies.

  1. This is STUNNING! Wow Louise, you stamped this right? Your stamping skills are amazing :D I need so much more practice lol. I'm also more inspired to grab the Barry M foils too now :) I hope you have a great time with your sister. I love girly sister time! I'm sure the puppies will be so pleased to see you when your back, just enjoy yourself :) xx
