This weeks theme was inspired by jewellery. I don't wear a lot of jewellery but the bits I do wear all have a special meaning to them. I don't buy it unless there's a reason for it. I think it makes them all the more special if they have a story to them. They don't have to be expensive, just items that remind me of something when I look at them.
For this manicure I was inspired by one of my oldest rings. My claddagh ring is pretty important to me and I tend to wear it the most. It's a simple ring but it means a lot to me.
I started off painting my nails with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in 170 Pink Cadillaquer. I used 2 coats to cover my super short nails (damn peeling is ruining them!)
Once that was dry I painted on a little heart on my ring finger using Essence Valentines Who cares? 03 Crew love is true love. I added on some hands around the heart and a crown above using Catrice Goldfinger. I then outlined it using Sally Hansen Patent Gloss in Vinyl. I topped it off with Sally Hansen 3D gel shine topcoat which did make it run a bit but it's grand.
