I really enjoyed last month’s “he picks my polish” challenge and so did my husband, so I was happy to hear that there would be another round this month.
Ed took his time looking through my polish collection and tried to pick polishes he thought would go nicely together. I loved that he chose green and purple as it’s one of my favourite colour combinations. He chose these polishes:
I Scream: Ice Cream! – Catrice, Bloomsbury Square – Nails Inc, Pearly Peacock – Kiko
I haven’t had much use out of the Nails Inc 3D glitter set so I was happy to see he’d chosen one of them. Although I loved the colours he’d picked for some reason I had a hard time thinking what to do with them. Finally I decided to go with a stripy taped mani as I’m still on a mission to improve my skills with striping tape.
I like the result but think it looks a bit like Christmas wrapping paper and perhaps isn’t the most seasonally appropriate mani I’ve ever done! It’s a fun combination of colours though and nice and bright and sparkly, so I can’t really complain! I think my striping skills are improving and are looking straighter and neater. Yay!
The colours for my mani today were picked by my wonderful husband Ed. He’s already pretty involved in my blog as he’s my photographer and helps my nails look their best with his knowledge of lighting and techie stuff. I thought this challenge sounded fun and he was happy to pick out some colours he liked. (Plus I trusted him to pick nice colours as he’s a talented artist and knows far more about colours and design than I do!)
The first colour he picked was a blue polish that his mum bought me a few months ago (how sweet!)the second was a pink which he thought would go well with the blue like cool clashing 80s colours, and then he picked a black textured polish which I was a bit stumped by at first. I did think he chose a really nice combination of polishes and gave me the chance to do something really fun.
I decided to run with his 80s inspiration and went for a dramatic black textured lightening bolt dividing my nail into a blue side and a pink side. I thought it looked fun and Ed gave it the thumbs up too.
It’s his birthday tomorrow and he certainly deserves something special for not only putting up with my nail obsession but actually encouraging it and helping me with it! ❤️
