NAILS Magazine 31DC - Day 13 and 15 combined (Drip and Latest nail purchase)

Hello everyone! I hope your weekend is off to a good start! Today I have doubled up two of the NAILS magazine 31DC prompts. Day 13 called for a drip manicure while day 15 was to use your latest nail purchase. You'll remember that at the beginning of the week I reviewed a Belle Glamour polish called Chocolate Kiss, well it reminded me so much of melted chocolate that I wanted to use it for the drip manicure and it also happened to be my latest nail polish purchase!

I painted my nails with two coats of Chocolate Kiss and left it to dry. I then painted a drip outline using Revlon Impulsive and filled in the rest of the space to the free edge, and topped that with LA Colors Morning Glory for the rich, subtly glittery finish. I tidied up the drip edges with a little extra Chocolate Kiss and finished with a coat of Seche Vite.

This mani has made me crave some chocolate but the only chocolate in the house belongs to Scarlett and she would be able to tell if even so much as a square had gone, so I'm going to have to go without. Instead, I'm hoping now that you all will want chocolate too and share my pain :p However, I also hope that you all have chocolate available to you should the need arise :)

  1. This is gorgeous! The colours look so nice together and it reminds me of chocolate too! :)

  2. Thank you! I've since given in to temptation and had some of my daughter's chocolate - I'll take the punishment later lol!

  3. I love the drip manis I've been seeing, but not confident enough to try it just yet - did you free-hand the outline?

    1. I did freehand the outline, although when I first started nail art I would draw the outline with a Sharpie to use as a guideline and I found that really helped. The polish covers it easily but its there when you need it! :)
