Something Dark and Decadent

After a few weeks of wearing pastels and brights, I felt like wearing a darker colour so I picked up Essie Carry On which I got on sale a few months ago but hadn't yet tried.

Carry On is a vampy blackened berry red. Maybe not the most appropriate colour for this time of year but in all honesty, I like wearing darks all year around.
I stamped using BM221 and Barry M Gold Foil and also added some thin gold french tips to make it more structured. For some reason it reminds me of chocolate wrapped in gold foil!

Vintage Rose – Scratch Nail Wraps

Hi lovelies. Hope everyone had a great Easter!

Scratch recently sent me two sets of nail wraps from their newest Kickstarter collection where they collaborated with designers to create three new sets of nail wraps.
Today I will be showing you "Vintage Rose" from The Burkatron Collection, designed by Caroline Burke.

I have previously reviewed some Scratch nail wraps here so you know how much I love working with these wraps. They are extremely easy to work with and very pliable which is usually a problem with other nail wraps. You literally just press them onto a clean and dry nail, smoothing out as you roll the wrap from the cuticle to the tip. You can file of the excess or it will easily break off at the tip as the wraps are so soft.

Here is how I wore these wraps. I paired them up in a mix and match mani with a polish that complemented the colours of the roses. You may also notice that the wraps are sparkling, that's because I added a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust. It makes for a really pretty spring mani.

You get a total of 16 nail wraps. Enough for a full mani and for an extra mix and match or an accent nail mani.


Check out these inspiring Scratch look books for each of the collections:
