Nail Fun - The Volcano!

Nail Fun

Nail Fun is all about having fun with your nails.  Layering it, splattering it, making pretty patterns with it … it’s the most fun you can have on your own with a child in the house !!  J 


I have been striving for a cool volcano style look for a while and MAY just have made myself happy.

The colours used – for my red, I used Ruby Pumps, a little extravagant, but I felt at least one of the polishes needed some lava-like glitter.

I used a plain black base and then the cling film splatter technique (see Cling Film mani blog).   This made a wonderful swirly mess which was ALMOST good enough … but hey, what’s life without a little tinkering ?

I then added a coat of KleanColor Chunky Holo in Poppy – this gave it some sparkle and looked really cool.  It also made the oranges really pop.

The coup de grace though, was a 2nd top coat – this time KleanColor’s  CHUNKY COPPER – bright coppery round pieces of glitter.  Simply too yummy for words!!!

I am BEYOND happy with this mani – it’s also versatile.  Icy blue version next !

Happy nailing J  xx
