Manic(ure) Monday: Lights in the Wood


Sometimes when you do something without expecting anything you get the best result. That was also the case with today's manicure. I wanted to use my glitter nail polish but then I thought that it was also time to use the cracking one again. Not being able to decide which one to use I simply applied both (what would have been the worst case that could have happened? - Right, simply having to remove the whole thing!). But the result was far from being bad, quite the contrary: this manicure turned out to be my absolute favourite! But take a look at it yourself:








When I looked at the final result I discovered that my nails looked like a forest in the twilight with lanterns shining from afar. Maybe that's only my opinion but they somehow remind me of a Disney fairytale.

What I used:

Barry M 308 Berry
Essence nail art cracking top coat
Essence nail art special effect topper

What do you think of when you look at this nail style? Would you want to try this manicure?
