Blanket Case

I have a bit of a thing for blankets. I just love curling up underneath one on a Sunday night while I'm watching  whatever ITV drama is on at the time (at the moment, it's Mr Selfridge!). A few weeks ago, I bought the BEST blanket, it's fleecy on one side and felt on the other with a lovely fair isle pattern. I love it so much, I had to do nails inspired by it!




I used Barry M White, Sally Hansen Plum Luck and Rimmel Grey Matter as my main colours with a nail art brush. I also used white acrylic paint for some of the small details such as drawing on the snowflake design and neatening up my lines.
Finally, I topped it with two coats of NYC.

  6. I really like the snowflake and the dark purple color! I think it's very difficult to create a design with a lot of details, but you did it great! Very eye-catching if you would ask me!

  18. I absolutely love this design! I have to ask though, given your bad experiences (and mine!) with the new formula of NYC In A Minute, did you find somewhere selling the old formula, or are you just trying to get rid of what you have left?

    I put mine on a few days ago, and woke up with huge dented sheetmarks over 12 hours after putting it on! For now I've had to go back to Sally Hansen Insta-Dri til I find a new alternative.

  20. You did such a great job with the straight shapes and lines! I love blankets too--gawd I have about a million of them. My two favourites are a blue one with white snowflakes all over it, and the one on my bed--light blue soft and embroidered on one side, all posh and white and fluffy on the other side, it's SO warm!
    Your nails make me want to be at home cuddled underneath one right now :) x

  21. These nails are just TOO CUTE! I myself am obsessed with Fair Isle (I have flannel fair isle sheets and matching throw pillows!) I wish I could do such great nail art like you!
