So it seems there’s a reason I don’t do this type of monochrome colouring very often, and that’s because it’s a look I don’t really like! Holographic polishes in particular (the type of finish specified by the Instagram challenge for which I did these nails) fare rather poorly, their beautiful little rainbows blending together and muddling an otherwise lovely design. Plus I’ve just realized I don’t particularly like one of the polishes I used here, Glam Polish’s dusky flamingo pink, Hey Mama (the other being Cirque’s cherry pink Powwow) – it’s not the most flattering of shades against my pale pink hide. Did I also mention I’m super sick at the moment and feeling quite contrary? No?! WELL, I AM! Okay, no, sorry, I didn’t mean that – it’s the non-stop coughing and sore ribs talking.
