My "breaking them in gently" nails...

Hello everyone! A super quick post for you today as I have just hurriedly painted my nails for a meeting early tomorrow. Most people I work with know me well enough that they expect me to turn up with random colours and patterns on my nails, but every now and again something comes up and I feel the need to play it safe (I also tone down the make up and take out the facial piercings - that kind of meeting). 

But me being me, I still can't go for completely plain nails, so I opted for a subtle accent nail on each hand ;)

I painted my nails with two coats of my all time favourite polish (and one I hold responsible for much of my polish addiction!), Jessica Ruffled Bottoms, except for my ring finger which I painted with three coats of LA Colors Lilac Frost. I then added some random freehand lines to the accent nail with the Ruffled Bottoms edged those with Barry M Gelly Guava and then added in a few fine lines with LA Colors Metallic Silver before finishing them all with Seche Vite.





I suppose you could call this my "breaking them in gently" nails, and this is about as subtle as I get - the restraint involved in leaving these as they are is beyond comprehension!

I will be back with my GOT Polish challenge nails for you tomorrow. The prompt is Coral and I apologise in advance for the strange colour my skin appears whenever in the vicinity of anything remotely resembling that colour! You have been warned!!!

  1. I feel like I'm seeing you naked! That said, it's a beautiful accent.

    1. Thanks Vic! I hate having my nails plain ever nowadays, but in another sense I guess its odd that I've got to the point where I find this plain... ;)

  2. You mentioned work, so I just stalked you on LinkedIn (along with the European Communications Director for McDonalds!!)

    1. I'm in lofty company indeed! And according to LinkedIn, I can get introduced to you by two of my real world connections/colleagues ;)

    2. Oooh - I didn't stalk you that well as I didn't notice - must go and have another look and see who we know in common.
