Hello, dear readers, I hope you had a lovely Easter weekend :) I found a moment of spare time last night to paint my nails so I tried a design I've had in my head for awhile. Ever since fashion house Miu Miu came out with their iconic swallow print, I've been in love. It's such a pretty, clean pattern and so very chic. Here I paired it with some more of my favourite things: gradients and Ruffian. I'm enjoying this colour combination- the gradient reminds me of a summer sunrise :)
On my thumb and ring finger I started with American Apparel Palm Springs. I sponged on the gradient with a makeup sponge and American Apparel L'Esprit. On the rest of the fingers I started with American Apparel Mount Royal. I painted on the Ruffian with American Apparel Palm Springs and repeated the previous process for the gradient. I freehanded the swallows with a small nail art brush and American Apparel Mount Royal.
I ended up using entirely American Apparel polishes for this look. Their creme range is so beautiful, creamy and opaque. They're some of my favourite polishes for nail art :) I'm also playing around with my watermark a bit. My old one was way less intrusive but pretty useless :P Hopefully this one isn't too distracting from the nail art :)
That's all for now! Next week will be the busiest yet for me but after that I'll be free! So please stay tuned until then for some better posts <3
