#NailArtWeeklyProject 4: Birth Month

Wow, the last week has flown by with not a single post on my blog - sorry guys! This has basically been a combination of our Internet going down in the storms last week, and then having the little ones for half term this week - I've barely had time to shower, never mind think about blogging! Nevertheless, I'm back now, with my post for week four of Danni's #NailArtWeeklyProject; this week the theme is Birth Month. I was born in September and not much happens in September, so I decided to work with my birth stone, which is a Sapphire. I've not done any leopard print nail art in aaages and it's one of my favourites, so I decided to do that! I started with two coats on Barry M 'Blueberry' from the Gelly Hi-Shine range, with three coats of Born Pretty's Holo Polish in shade 8 on my ring and index fingers. I then dotted the Born Pretty polish randomly onto my other three nails, before roughly outlining the splodges with my black Barry M Nail Art Pen. I then called my Gran whilst I waited for the polish to dry (that woman can talk - I can see where I get it from!) before applying a coat of Jacava London's top coat for a lovely glossy finish. February weather isn't the best for capturing holo polish in its true beauty, but we did have a bit of sun this morning so hopefully these photos are halfway decent. The first is in natural light, and the others are in direct sunlight.
