I took holidays from work for the last week of the school holidays, so I could spend some quality time with the kiddos before my eldest started Kindergarten and a full five days at school. We visited Black Mountain tower, the War Memorial, rode the alpine slide at Corin Forest, went to the baseball and went to the movies. We've had a blast together.
At the movies we saw the animated film, Frozen, which is a great movie and both the kids enjoyed. Of course I had to paint my nails in an appropriate matching manner...
Here are my frozen nails. I started with a base of Ulta3 Blue Marlin. I then put on two coats of Dance Legend Ulmen Artus, which is a flakie polish from the Lumos collection. The flakies in this are the chunky kind, like in Color Club Covered in Diamonds, and my old school Ulta3 Wild. They are a bit tricky to get to lay flat on the nail and it is very thick to apply. I used two thick coats of top coat before stamping, and another layer of top coat after stamping, and the finish was still not glassy smooth as I like it. Despite the difficulties in applying the polish, the finish is rather spectacular, the flakies are much larger than regular ones and they catch the light very easily.
The stamping was done using the fire and ice plate from Messy Mansion MM 27.
