Manic(ure) Monday: Bejeweled Orange


It's a new week, a new beginning and a new manicure. The temperatures are slowly rising (I caught my first sunburn of the year yesterday... not really a good thing but always a sure sign of summer!) so I wanted to come up with a really fresh colour for this week's manicure. The shade Tart Deco by Essie seemed just right as it has this interesting feature to look pastel and neon at the same time. Call it a flashy pastel or a decent neon... this shade is just exceptional. The icing on the cake (or on the "tart" in this case) are the silver dots in French manicure style. As you could see in last week's video you don't even need a nail art stick like the one linked above as you can simply use your bobby pins for a successful dotted manicure. Have fun trying and a good week ahead!





What I used: Essie - Tart Deco, Essie - No Place Like Chrome, p2 - 8in1 Nail Wonder, Essence - Nail Art Duo Stylist
