Indigo Flames

Purple mani!! It feels so long since I’ve done a purple mani, which is weird as purple is one of my favourite colours and I have a LOT of purple polishes!

I did these nails while on my lunch break at work. I’ve taken to planning my manicure in the morning and packing a nail kit with all the things I will need and then bringing it to work to do at lunch time! It’s been so great at getting me away from my PC for an hour.


I started by painting a base of Beauty UK Smokey Lilac on three nails, and Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri Grape Escape on my ring finger. I then painted a quick drying topcoat over the lilac nails to make them dry quickly so I could stamp over them without smudging! I used Models Own Boogie Nights to paint over my ring finger – such an amazing glitter! Finally, I used Sally Hansen Grape Escape again and a Bundle Monster stamping plate to stamp that gorgeous flame-like pattern onto my nails.

I love that Models Own glitter so much. I have the whole Mirrorball collection and really feel like I should use them more often!

Hope you’re all having a great Monday!
