1 Manicure; Worn 3 Ways

Ever have one of those weeks where you seem to have NO time to do your nails.  Yup, that would be me this week.  I did a manicure on Saturday, and haven't had the chance to do anything since then. 

One of the main reasons why I love nails inc polishes is they have loads of different special effects, so if your wearing a plain colour for work all week, you can throw on a layer of glitter on Friday night for the weekend therefore no need to spend however long it takes you to re-paint your nails for your night out.  Voila! You've ultimately recycled your boring work manicure.  

I've did just that this week with my nail art.  I've learnt a new technique using my fan brush (tutorial coming reeeeal soon, so look out for that one my friends!) and have been changing it up for the last 5 days because I love it so much and I've had no time, boo! :(

Polishes Used:
Rimmel - Purple Reign (Pictured)
Rimmel - Too Cool To Tango
Rimmel - Out Of The Blue
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Twisted Pink
Seche Vite

I started off by painting all of my nails with Too Cool To Tango.  I waited until that was completely dry before I started the "fanning", so I added a super thin coat of Seche Vite at this time.

Using my tin foil, I decanted a small amount of Out Of The Blue onto tin foil (I found it easier, after a trial and error period, to start with my darkest colour), then using my fan brush, I dipped the very edges of the brush into the polish and started flicking the colour across my nails.  I done the same with Purple Reign and Twisted Pink.  Finally, I added a coat of Seche Vite.

I mentioned above that I changed this manicure up a little, so after 2 days, I added a coat of Electric Lane Holo Top Coat by nails inc - this was to cover up my very very little tip wear that was starting to appear.

Finally, for the last few days, I have been wearing the manicure with MoYou London Stamping on top.  I stamped a chevron related design using Essie's No Place Like Chrome and Explorer Plate 01.

So what do you think?  Have you ever recycled a manicure?  If so, how long and how many times have you done it?  Let me know!
