NAILS | Welcoming Spring with Formula X and Cupcakes and Cashmere #ManiMonday

This month's Formula X #ColorCurators collaboration is with who I consider one of the pioneers of blogging. Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere was probably one of the first bloggers I started reading regularly back when blogging was fairly novel. Nowadays, it feels like everyone is a blogger (ahem, yes I know that I am the pot calling the kettle black), but Emily will always be one of the pioneers and still remains one of my favourite blogs to read. I even have her book which is a wonderfully relaxing read.

I actually really liked Emily's colour choices because not only did they feature a basic nude (to be featured in a future post), but also some bright pops of colour which is how I dress. I am usually quite basic in all aspects except for one like shoes or in this case nails!

Creating this "fishtail" manicure is super straightforward and looks pretty cool too! I started by painting my nails two coats of
Peach Tea*, a creamy coral shade. This shade is streaky on the first coat, so you will definitely need a second if not a third coat to even things out.

Carefully paint half moons with Haute Sauce*, a slightly jelly bright red, starting at the side of the nail and going toward the center. While the nail is still wet, add a gold stud to the center. Seal it all in with top coat and you're done!

Happy Monday! It's a short week this week and two more days until I'm on my staycation!
