Well it's Christmas Eve, and for the first time since I've had my children I'm not sitting here panicky wrapping presents and assembling toys. You see this year we had a cunning plan. I took the last three days of work and took the kids down the coast on Monday to spend the night camping.
My kids had never been camping, and I can't remember when I ever went camping, so they were so excited to go. We squeezed into a little three person tent with our sleeping bags and blow up mattresses, we ate sausage sandwiches for dinner and managed to stay dry despite the downpour in a Summer storm that came through around 3.00am. We spent the next day playing at the beach and generally tiring the kids out. In the mean time, back at home, Mr More Nail Polish did amazing things! He found all the kids presents that we have stashed around the house over the year and wrapped them all up.
When we got home from the coast, under the tree was full of presents and the kids eyes lit up. I can't believe they have actually managed not to touch the for the last 24 hours - there's a Christmas miracle right there!
So once I finish typing up this post, I'm going to sit down and do my Christmas nails. My mum is going to join me and we are going to drink champagne and watch Carols by Candlelight.
So now lets quickly get to these nails.
Today I have of of the recent collaboration shades from Picture Polish, Honeymoon by the Manicurator. The colour is inspired by her exotic Caribbean honeymoon location, however for me this time round it was inspired by the colour to create something cold feeling. I ended up doing a simple stamping mani with a feature nail of Picture Polish Storm.
Honeymoon is a soft pastel green with blue to purple colour shifting glass flecks and a scattered holo finish. I used two coats for these swatches and still had a very slight visible nail nail. Dry time was good. You can really see the glass fleck shimmer in the shade, and in the sun the scattered holo comes out to play, it's a lovely combo of shimmer and holo.
If you are wondering how it compares to other similar Picture Polish collaboration shades, siren song or tail feather, both are much greener than this.
Picture Polish Honeymoon is available from Picture Polish. International ladies can purchase through one of the many Network stockists.
