NOTD (a couple of days ago) #2

For some peculiar reason, this nail designs reminds me of either an ice-cream, or a pretty dress, hehe!
3D bows - alike all nail art - is really coming into fashion these days, right? My thoughts are that if you can't beat them, join them, plus I have always loved nail polishes and nail art, so it really is a win win situation! I decided that I would join this superb trend, and order myself some 3D nail art bows off EBay. I think these ones were 99p, with free P&P - how good is that?! So for this look, I applied a base coat of Barry M All in One Nail Paint, I find it is the best at its job, which is to act as a base and top coat, and a nail strengtheners. Once this had dried, I used Barry M Blue Moon, with 3 coats.
I then used the All in One Nail Paint as a top coat. Once all of my nails had dried, I used some nail glue to stick the bow down, and held it for about 15-20 seconds, however it did feel secure after about 8-10 seconds.
And hey presto! :) Hope you like it!
What do you think of nail art? Have you tried any of the trends? xo

  2. These bows are so cute! I love Ebay for nail art bits and bobs, there are so many things on there that you just can't pick up in the shops. I'm now following you too :)

    1. You must give it a try! I used some nail glue from my local Boots store to keep it on, and it didn't get in the way x
