Mani Monday : Reverse French Manicure (Sort of!)

It's been a really long time since I've made any considerable effort with my nails - I've just never got the time. But as part of my new years resolution, I've decided to ensure I schedule in some 'me time', because lord knows (as does the other half) I'm moody if I don't get some me time.

I've been fascinated by nail art recently - I've been following loads of amazing accounts over on Instagram. Where do you get the stickers that help you along with nail designs? I don't mean decals, I want the ones that you paint over and peel off. If any one knows, leave me a comment with a link!

Anyway, I thought I needed a little more sparkle in my life recently and was inspired by the half moon reverse mani trend that I grabbed the Ciate glitter in the shade Razzmatazz for my highlight in this mani. It was the first time using this polish and I was impressed. You don't need multiple layers to get an opaque effect which is good for drying time. The only thing is it can be abit grainy and the texture shows up slightly underneath the other polish - but I'm sure I'll get better with practice.

The gorgeous plum shade is Divine Wine from Maybellines Super Stay 7 Day Gel Nail Colour range. I love this range, but most of all I love this colour. It's not too girly, not too vampy and it's the perfect shade for this time of year.

Overall, I'm happy with the look. I definitely need to work at smoothing out the glitter and getting some stronger lines, but for my first attempt freehand, I think I did a pretty good job.

What's on your nails today?
