Ever wanted to step back in time, to the days when courtship and dancing were the height of romance, and rules of etiquette meant everything? You know, just spend a day as a Jane Austen character? At Picnic at Pemberley, you can do just that.
Is it any surprise that I jumped on that bandwagon? (Practically leapt onto it, actually…)
With the help of my lovely mother, I made a Regency gown for the occasion. This shindig is costumed, of course! Naturally, I needed nails to match (requisite pale skin – tick; long blonde hair – tick).
Behold: such elegance!
:P Okay, so I’m talking it up. But I really love this mani ^^ Yes, it’s simple, but it’s just so beautiful. Beauty need not always be complex.
I’m glad I got another use out of my cheap maroon-red polish. It’s one that smudges appallingly when top-coating or removing. Luckily, it played nice this time around. Fickle, thy name is red polish.
Oh, and I used a coat or two of OPI’s Hearts & Tarts to even out the pink of my nails. Alas, they are usually half yellow from the constant polish. Sigh.
I’m really getting the hang of this freestyle French mani…or is it just that the gold line hides my flaws? Hmm. Better yet, don’t answer that.
