Bathroom Tile Nails!


These nails were, believe it or not, inspired by some tiles I saw in a bathroom over the weekend in London... They were off-white, with grey and beige specks, kind of like this:

It made me think of some of my new and much-loved polishes... So to create this look I used: Lavender Cloud & Dorien Grey by Sally Hansen (the white and the grey) & Lychee by Barry M (the nude). I started by using a few coats of Lavender Cloud as a base. I thought from the name this might have a hint of purple/pink to it, but it's basically white! I then used a straw to splatter grey over the top. Cos my boyfriend was laughing at my method, I didn't splatter for the beige, but kind of mashed it on with the end of the brush. This took a while and I wasn't that happy with the result, but I've had some positive comments at work and it's beginning to grow on me.
