BFF Challenge - Coffee!

Hey hey! This weeks BFF theme comes from Emma over at Manicurity and it is one of my favourite things ever- coffee! I love coffee as much as I love polish, which is saying a LOT!

I wanted to try something I haven't done yet, so I grabbed some deliciously creamy coffee-ish colours -Ulta3 Chocolate Cake and Allure. I painted my ring and index with 2 coats of Allure, and my middle and pinky fingers with 2 coats of Chocolate Cake, one coat of Seche Vite to help it dry quicker, and then started on the 'art'.

Please, mind my pictures, it's rainy and windy and awesome, but not good for picture taking, so they're taken indoors, with flash.

I tried the 'Saran wrap' technique- but here in Australia we call it Glad Wrap lol. For the crappy photo situation, these photos are dead on colour wise! And in the first picture, that is my actual coffee mug- kittens and all!

My idea for these was when you add milk to black coffee and it swirls around and looks awesome. I finished them off with NYC Matte Me Crazy.

Now, I need to fill that mug up, go check out my fellow Challengers!

Until next time!

  1. Looks great! Haha I had the same reaction when I first saw 'saran' wrap I was like huh? Then I read the technique and realised they meant cling/glad wrap!! I really like the effect the saran wrap technique creates :)


I appreciate every single comment I get, and while I may not reply, I always read them. Please do not leave links to blogs/advertising in a comment, this is not what my blog is for.
