The Monday Mani - Pink .... Boobies ?

Nail Fun

Pink Nails for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Hi Goddesses

This week’s PAA theme is PINK and pretty much straight away I knew what I wanted to do.  I really like one of the patterns I did for last week’s Blue Monday and thought I would spread it over a whole mani.

This is 2 layers of Sinful Colors’ Forget Now, an insanely sparkly hot pink jelly, Confetti’s First Kiss, and in the centre, Barry M’s Raspberry.  Slightly annoyed with my camera, as it’s just not picking up the electric sparkle that crackles through FORGET NOW like voltage.  To be fair tho, it is dark, dingy and overcast here in England, so I suppose it had a challenge on it’s hands!

As you can see, I went for the pattern I had on my left thumb in Blue Monday – a wide circle of dots, with a smaller circle or “splodge” to give it it’s technical term lol, in the middle.

I do like it – it’s very bright and happy and takes me back to summer.  Howeverrrrrr, it’s not quite how I pictured it in my head, probably because I didn’t use a pale enough colour.

Here goes, in my head, this would have looked a little more like boobies J with a paler circle of dots.  Even the Barry M was wrong – too dark to be the nipple!

So there you have it – a fun idea gone bad, but if I squint and pretend I wanted a psychedelic summer look, I am SO there J

Happy Monday!


Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
