So a few weeks ago, I went to buy my ticket to go see Bastille but lo and behold, they had just sold out. I was a bit gutted but I moved on, bought tickets for Azealia Banks (woohoo!) and whatnot. I got a text from a friend this morning about a spare ticket IT WAS MEANT TO BE! So of course, some celebratory nails were needed for such an occasion.
The base colour, Skyfall is a nice maroon-red and would need maybe 2-3 coats as on some fingers, it still looked a bit transparent but because I was doing the lettering I didn't think too much of it. I'm kind of raging I didn't do something like a gradient or tie-dye effect underneath to give the manicure a bit of pizzazzz but it does the job nice and is VERY AWKWARD to photograph together, hence this horrible amalgamation of my flipped over hands.
Hopefully the gig will be really good and you might see some of my snaps in the next blog post, escalater!
