Manic(ure) Monday: The Right Direction


After last week's break my nails had enough time to recover from the glitter top coat damages. It's really incredible how well they grow if you leave them a bit of nail polish free time! However I had a manicure in mind I absolutely wanted to try and as it comes without glitter I reopened my "manicure saloon" this morning:






What I used:
Essie 1 Blanc
Agnès B. Nail Art pen H109 Fil de Cuivre

As you can see I wanted to create some kind of an ethnic manicure with a modern twist. White and copper is such a lovely combination and I think I will do a lot more designs with these two during summer. Don't worry if your arrows look like a schoolchild painted them because that's just the effect we want to have (however they might end up looking like a kindergarten pupil painted them on your right hand so better ask someone to help you out on that side).

What do you think of this simple idea? Any other ideas for designs one could do with white and copper?
