Sunset Manicure by Anneke of Pinpoint Polish

Saturday, December 22, 2012
Hi folks!
So I'm on holiday vacation/moving this week so I conned some blogger friends into doing the work for me convinced some of my favorite bloggers to do guests for me this week! Today, one of my favorite nail bloggers ever, Anneke from Pinpoint Polish! helped me out.

I'm so excited to be doing my first guest post and most importantly, I'm so excited that I'm doing it for Mimi. One of the things I love the very most about blogging is the people that I have been able to get to know along the way. Mimi has been so supportive of me and my little blog, including feeding my obsession and saving me from the exorbitant prices of polish in New Zealand.

One thing I struggle with is getting ideas for what to paint on my nails, but something that never ceases to inspire me with its beauty is a sunset. So for todays post, I have taken inspiration from this recent sunset...

This is the view from our apartment. Spot the red and green Christmas colours on the Sky Tower there :)

To create this look, I used a makeup sponge and painted the polish directly onto the sponge, then dabbed it on to my nails. The polishes I used are listed below. I'm on such a big stud kick at the moment. I love how versatile they are and I really like the way this spiral of studs came out on my accent nail.

Polishes used:
Sally Hansen 'White On', OPI 'The "It" Color' and 'I Eat Mainely Lobster', Cult Nails 'Princess' & Essie 'Smooth Sailing'. On top of the gradient is one coat of Chi Chi 'Disco Diva'.

So there you have it, my sunset inspired nails. Thanks so much Mimi for having me on your wonderful blog!

Whoa! What a fantastic view! I wish my apartment looked out to something half as beautiful! 

Thank you so much Anneke for this guest post. You should really check out her blog, she has so many beautiful manicures, all of which are so colorful and put my nails to shame!
