Bonjour my beauts!
Can you believe we will soon be in June already? You wouldn't think so by looking out the window, I'm currently snuggled up within the confines of a fleecy jumper! Lets hope Summer, wherever she may be, decides to join us all soon.
Yesterday twas a good un, if you follow me on Twitter (@Aysh_tmb) you'll know the day was spent partaking in my favourite thing...Pampering! My lovely friend had a voucher for a spa day at The Langham Hotel followed by a delightful afternoon high tea at the Palm Court & was kind enough to take me along with her. Such an amazing experience, the whole day was simply perfect & I highly recommend you pay a visit if you can!
I thought I'd brighten up this slightly dreary weather with a nice cheerful manicure to lift the spirits! I felt a little cute Kawaii-ness was in order with a touch of pastel skittle thrown in so today I have some jolly little Kawaii Cloud nails for you! :)
Hehe what do you think? I remember seeing similar design on my IG feed a while back & I can't for the life of me remember where as I follow SO many accounts! But I remember thinking I definitely needed to try it out for myself & I just love the cutesy design!
For this mani I've used three different pastel cremes from the brand Miss Sporty. I never use to pay this brand much attention I'll be honest, but I am totally in love with their nail polishes! They have a great range of fab quality, pretty shades that are absolute steals at £1.99!
I noticed that Superdrug had an offer of three polishes for a fiver so I snapped up these three pretty creme pastels from the Clubbing Colour Range. I couldn't decide on one shade so I used all three in the mani haha!
On the thumb & little finger I applied two coats of Green Whisperer (155), on the index & ring fingers two coats of Lilac (190) & on the middle finger two coats of Lemon Drop (140) All three applied perfectly, Lemon Drops formula being slightly thicker than the others.
For my cute little Kawaii clouds I grabbed my trusty dotting tool & with some white polish, dotted on a circle of 6-7 dots on the centre of each nail before filling in the middle with more white polish. I think the pigment in the Green Whisperer polish is stronger than the others as it tinted my little Kawaii cloud a pale green!
Next for the eyes I used a lightly smaller dotting tool & No7 Duck Egg Blue, a pale pastel blue crème. To create the Kawaii look in the eyes I added two smaller white dots inside the blue using the Barry M white nail art pen.
Finally I used the Barry M nail art pen in black to create the little smiles on my cheeky clouds before adding a slick of topcoat to finish.
I hope you liked the Kawaii nails my lovelies! Thanks as always for reading. Don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY for a chance to win the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation I recently reviewed!
