Fancy Pants

I thought that once the 31 Day Challenge was over, I’d have a huge list of ideas waiting to spill out of me on to my nails. But alas, I feel a bit creatively drained! Hopefully I’ll get my spark back soon. 
Today I was looking for inspiration in the little things. I decided to work something around these cute moustache charms and the first thing that came to mind was a fancy suit. I kept it simple with some pinstripes and a tuxedo nail!

I used Barry M White as a base except on my ring finger which is Sally Hansen Dorien Grey. Then I topped them all with a coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails Fast Dry Top Sealer.

 For the pinstripes, I used striping tape to mark off the thin white lines and painted over it all in Sally Hansen Gray by Gray. I quickly peeled the tape off while Gray by Gray was still wet on my nails.

The tuxedo nail is freehanded using a nail art brush with a dotting tool for the buttons and centre of the bow-tie. Again, I used Sally Hansen Dorien Grey, then Gray by Gray to outline the details.

I attached the moustache charm using a dot of nail glue right in the middle.

It’s all topped with a coat of No7 Stay Perfect Top Coat.
