Nail Art Ideas Linkup - February - Red

Hi all!

I actually did this mani over a month ago (I wore this at Christmas). It has not been published earlier because I am doing so many challenges! So instead of moving pretty Marilyn forward week after week until she's all forgotten, I decided she fits today's theme and needs attention. It is Marilyn after all *winks*.

From left to right:
  • Catrice - LE Eve In Bloom - C04 Rosebuddy
  • Catrice - 550 Marilyn & Me
  • Essence - Stampy polish black

Because Marilyn is pretty enough on her own, all I added was curls. Marilyn likes to do her hair *nods*. For the curls I used MoYou London Fairytale Collection plate 02. It has some nice curly swirly things on the left top corner.

I started out with two coats of Rosebuddy, this polish would need more coats to get opaque on its own by the way. Next came one coat of Marilyn & Me. Marilyn has gorgeous red flecks of prettiness. I topcoated and then stamped the curls with the black polish onto my nails. It's not the most perfect stamping, but it's not that obvious from a distance anyway.

I think next time I should layer it over a redder red if that makes sense, I think it will make Marilyn even prettier.

Check out the other red mani's below!
