Untried May - Update 1

Hey all!

Been pretty quiet around here but I have been pretty active on instagram, it's the best way to keep updated with what I'm up to so you should follow me if you aren't already *wink wink*. A bunch of us AN ladies are doing a month of only using polishes that are untried, hence #untriedmay!

I decided I would do update posts of the manis rather than a post for each, so hopefully I will have another update before the end of the month.

Pretty Serious Into Dream and Emily de Molly Dark Forces swatch mani nail polish

A great way to start off the month was with aussie indies! That purple, huunnnggg!
The purple is Pretty Serious Cosmetics Into Dreams (2 coats) and the black is Emily de Molly Dark Forces (1 coat over black) with black triangle studs from ebay.

Essie Sand Tropez, Illamasqua Swinger and Matte top coat swatch mani nail polish elegant nail art

I was surprised how much I loved this mani as it is so not like anything I have ever worn before.
The base for this was Essie Sand Tropez (3 coats) with hand painted tips using Illamasqua Swinger with 1 coat of Illamasqua Matte top coat.

This has been my current favourite so far, but it has been so hard to pick as I've loved all of the manis I've done. I may have had this on for nearly a week because I didn't want to take it off.
The base was Maybelline Sea-quins (2 coats) then a brushed on gradient of Femme Fatale Cosmetics Hydraxia and Shades of Phoenix Poseidon.

Illamasqua Vice, Illamasqua Gothica, Femme Fatale Cosmetics Vrotex Remains  swatch mani nail polish

Lastly we have a mix and match mani using Illamasqua Vice on the pointer and ring finger (3 coats), Illamsqua Gothica on the middle (already worn, 2 coats) and Femme Fatale Cosmetics Vortex Remains on the ring finger (2 dabbed coats).

Hope you enjoyed this post, if you did, be sure to keep and eye on the #untriedmay tag on instagram for more nails from the other ladies!
