I know that this is a bit late, but I wanted to show you my Children In Need manicure, that I wore yesterday. We had a dress down day at work, where we had to wear something spotty and give money to Children In Need. As I don't own anything with spots apart from one pair of socks, I decided to give myself a spotty manicure.
I started by using a French manicure tip colour as a base. I'm not sure of the brand, just one I'd had knocking around for a while. It needed two coats to get an opaque base, and it was a terrible, gloopy polish. Nevermind, I was going to cover up my mistakes!
I then used Nails Inc polish in St Johns Wood and GOSH Gypsy Blue to dot my nails. This was a little bit tricky, but I quite liked the effect. It took a while to dry as some of the dots were quite thick. I alternated the colours on each nail. I didn't use any fancy tools, just the brush for dotting, hence the dots varied in size and thickness.
I had quite a lot of comments on my nails, including from random people in shops, as well as friends. People were asking me where I had them done, which was quite a compliment!
This was a fun and relatively easy thing to do to my nails, and it was nice to do something a bit different, which had a purpose, for a good cause.
Did you do anything special for Children In Need?
