NOTD - Summer Nail Art with Sinful Colors 24/7

Summer_Palm_tree_nail_art

Apologises for two nail post in a row! When the sun comes out I seem to want to paint my nails more often and give myself al fresco manicures. Anyone else do that? 

Bank Holiday Monday actually turned out to be the warmest day of the year so far, so I sat in my garden and painted my fingers and toes in my latest nail polish buy - Sinful Colours 24/7. Then after a bit of magazine reading I decided to add some nail art doodlings to make them even more summery!

Quite frustratingly Sinful Colors 24/7 doesn't actually show up on camera true to colour at all and by doing a quick Google image search it seems no one has been able to capture the correct pink neon of it. So you will just have to imagine the brightest fluro neon pink you can... then double the brightness as this is one bright, bright nail polish. The kind that makes even pale skin seemed tanned against it. Nothing pastel or creamy about it, just in your face neon hot pink!

I should point out Sinful Colors, which is an American nail polish brand, are now stocked in selected Boots stores for only £1.99 each - bargain! You can find your nearest stockist here or you can purchase them from the Boots website here... but will have to pay the £1.95 delivery-to-store charge (or standard delivery charges), unless you spend over £20. It did use to be free... tut tut Boots.

I also had to look up on the interwebs to see if this was actually a matte finish nail polish because the polish dried (which is did as I was painting it on to my nails in the sun!) to such an odd rubberised finish which was definitely more matte than glossy. However apparently this is in the normal Sinful Colors line... but for me I would always have to wear this with a clear top coat as the finish was a bit 'urgh' looking. 

 As for the nail art, I did this when my nails were fully dry with a Muji pen (only £1!). If you are in to your nail art then Muji is without a doubt the place to get some pens from as they don't streak at all when applying a top coat and they are so fine and precise - just perfect. I decided  to go for some simple tribal nails which I made up as I went, I just tried to make each nail a bit different. As for my thumb nail that was the most fun to do and was actually really easy! 

I think I will be trying more detailed nail art from now on as I was surprised at how easy it was.

Fingers crossed we have more warm weather soon!  

Fee xo.
