Friday Challenge - Sweet Shop!

This week's Friday Challenge is... Sweet Shop!


I wanted to go for a sweets-inspired look, rather than actually painting sweets themselves onto my nails. 


For this design I used two coats of Barry M Blossom from the Silks collection (my bottle is down to 2/3 full! I'm going to need a back-up!) on three fingers, and two coats of Jacava Raspberry Bavarois on my thumb and ring fingers. 


I then added studs to the Blossom fingers. The studs are from the Born Pretty Store, and are stuck down with topcoat.   I used striping tape to tape off stripes on my Raspberry Bavarois fingers and then added a coat of Barry M Princess, the textured pinky gold glitter, for a sugary texture. 


I'm quite pleased with this look. It's pretty and sweet, and I think it meets the brief! I was really pleased with how well the studs stayed put too - they've been on for 24 hours now and have survived intact, which doesn't always happen with studs and topcoat for me.

    1. Thank you! I didn't think the two different nails went together particularly, but I did enjoy wearing these.
