Polished Pretties monthly mani: My pick

As you all know I'm part of awesome group of nail art enthusiasts, called Polished Pretties and we decided to do something similar to the Triad posts, where we give inspiration for a manicure and post once a month... So I haven't been blogging about these as I don't always have the time to do a blog post, but I have been posting on Instagram. However with today's inspiration being my own I decided to do a blog post. Maybe if I have time I might start doing the others.... Let me show you my inspiration and what I did with it.

I bought the coffee cup for work with a sleeve that says "no coffee no workee", and I've been digging the design to this day. I started with three coats of essie turquoise & caicos on my thumb, index and middle finger. On my ring and pinky I have two coats of Hean I love Hean 856 sugar.
I then stamped a design from Lina summer 3 on my thumb with Mundo de Unas green. I was struggling my behind off with green, for some reason it just wouldn't pick up a full image. Tried different stampers, it was all very patchy. So eventually I settled for the best I could get. I stamped some leafy images from Konad square 35 with Mundo de Unas forest and green, again settling for the best I could get.
I then added some flamingos from Konad 35 and stamped with Mundo de Unas orchid.
And that's it. What do you think? I was kinda hoping that the Hean polish would be textured, that would have been awesome!

Thanks for reading!


  1. That looks awesome! It's basically a summer vacation on your nails (and your coffee cup) :)
