Empire State of Mind

This week I've been busy putting the final touches on our wedding invitations. It's about 6 months away now so we realised that we'd better start getting organised, eek! Naturally the colour theme of the invites is mint green so I felt obliged to create some matching nails, obvs.

The mint polish is a new one from Barry M's Spring Sunset releases - Empire State of Mind*. I already love it, it's absolutely stunning. The cream polish is another one from Barry M's new Spring releases, Cream Soda*, from the Gelly range. The glitter polish is Emerald City from Models Own, one of my favourite glitters, although sadly it's gone super gloopy now, I may need to replace it. I just used the polish from a black nail art pen for the detailing.
I usually struggle to get mix and match manis right but I like how this one turned out. I think keeping it simple with a couple of accent nails and the glitter either side worked wonders. My stripes are a bit wobbly but I wasn't too worried about it being perfect so didn't bother with striping tape. 

I expect you'll see a few more wedding inspired nails over the next few months as it takes over my life!
