Floral/Racing Nails and my Savior!

As some of you may or may not know I LOVE painting my nails and I pretty much change them weekly to something different because I easily get bored and have so many nail polishes I feel changing my nails weekly means I might actually use 1 up! 

So this time round I did a little bit of nail art using simple black and white dots! You would never believe that initially I was going to make a checkered flag on one of my nails because I've been to the BTCC over the weekend (which I will so a photographic blog post on on wednesday) so thought I would get in the spirit of things, but in the end I went with floral nails...I still stuck with the black and white though!

As you can see I went with quite a busy floral pattern, but I love it because I think the coral base colour makes it look super summery! Also the black and white contrast so well together I just had to give it a go! 

The nail polishes I used to create this look were -

  • Black by Creative Colours, this was a gift I got a while back so I don't know if they exist anymore but it was the only black I have. I think I need a better quality one, for dots this is ok but I think it's a little opaque for full black nails. 
  • Coral Reef by Avon, this is such a bright summery colour!
  • French White by Avon, a classic
  • Seche Vite Top Coat which is what I mean by my savior!

Now when I said Seche Vite was my savior I really mean that! A few months ago I picked this up because I know a lot of people think it's a great top coat as it's a dry fast top coat and I had just about run out of my OPI drip dry, which by the way is a good alternative but takes a little longer to dry. 

And oh my god this top coat is so good, if your one of them people that can't stand waiting for nail polish to dry or smudge nail art with the top coat this is for you! It can be a tad expensive for a top coat but I think a good top coat really helps your nail polish to last even if your colour is quite cheap. Also another good point it's really easy to take off with nail polish remover which I was surprised about because my nail polish lasts so long and it's a great top coat to stop chipping yet it comes off really easily when I want to change my mani! Brilliant I think! 

So that's it, my turn around on racing nails, oops!

Thanks for reading!
