Jinx & Ribbons

*Purchased By Me

Hey everyone! Apologies for the late post, my mum suddenly said she wanted to go out so we went to get gifts! It was rather fun, and somehow I feel happy when I purchase things, even if it is not for me! Does anyone feel that way too? ^^

Anyways today was supposed to be another Tuesday Talk episode but I didn’t have anything prepared! D: So sorry…but I do have a simple mani for you guys today. (:



I actually posted a black and white version of this on IG yesterday, as a sneak peek. Today it is revealed.~

My Born Pretty Store goodies arrived yesterday(quite funny considering how I posted that I was still waiting for it…) and of course I couldn’t resist using what I purchased! ^^

I decided to go with a simple design using O.P.I Jinx. I’m in love with this colour, you can check out my swatch and review here if you missed it!

Honestly I was thinking of doing this design in a more subtle colour, but my hand just strayed to Jinx.



I then added a foil metal sticker onto my ring finger as an accent. I just used a drop of top coat to hold the ribbon and then 3-4 thick layers of Seche Vite to seal it in.

The foil metal stickers are quite hard and not bendable, so they do stick off slightly on my nails…and I don’t really have very curved nail beds! I didn’t mind though, just took care to adhere the sticker tighter to my nail and seal it in properly. No harm in having more layers of top coat! ^^

Also, this is day 2 of my mani and I’m trying to see if I can keep it till Sunday. I’ve been washing the dishes and all and the metal sticker is still on properly. It doesn’t really snag when I’m bathing, but I do check occasionally to see if the ribbon is intact once in awhile.

I do like this design, simple yet the lovely sparkle of Jinx has enough eye-dazzle to do the work of having a lovely mani. Perfect for those who want something simple yet elegant on their nails.
