Simply Effortless Nail Art

Hi loves,
Sorry for the sudden disappearance, Friday was my birthday and I decided to take some time off instead of worrying about doing nails & blog posts. :) everything should be all back to normal from now and I am hoping to be posting atleast 4x a week, eventually back to daily! ;)

Today I have a simple bit of art I did last week, I got inspired by a card that came from the 'youbeauty' box, which had an awesome sketch watercolour type picture on of a girl. I thought it would be cool to do & I kind of like the simple outcome.



I strangely like the above shot so thought I would add it in :).

I used OPI My Vampire Is Buff along with acrylic paints for the art. I didn't really have a 'plan' for this look, infact it ended up being one of those doodle art moments tbh lol. I like the 'no effort' style of things lately and just being relaxed. Overall I enjoyed wearing this mani :)


I'd have probably done her smaller if I started over just to fit in an show more of her hair which was my favourite part. Unfortunately I had no time :( lol! 
I hope you enjoy this simple nail art, I'm hoping to slowly get back into art which I'm super excited about! :D

Overall thoughts?
I really enjoyed this collection, all of them had amazing application! I like that they can be applied without a base colour but personally I probably would use one next time, I like to use Multichromes this way and although all of these can be used alone with 2 coats I applied 3 as I could see VNL in some light. Some shifts weren't as exciting as others to me personally but most I loved! My fave and two I would highly recommend are Vixen & Paradise. 

This collection is launching tomorrow (Wed 23rd July) so keep up to date with Polish Me Silly for timing :)
