NAILS | Comme des Garcons Play #CBBxManiMonday

Yes, I know I am cheating a little bit with posting a ManiMonday on a Tuesday, but I've never been great at doing these way in advance and now even less so with work. We were crazed on Sunday so I decided to go into work an hour early to catch up on things yesterday and just as I thought it was about to happen (checkin' off tasks one by one), it got really busy with clients and before I knew it, it was closing time. So much for being ahead of the game! 

 PR samples

I wanted to feature hearts for Valentine's Day this week, but not in a way I have done before when I came across a couple of Comme des Garcons Play manicures on Instagram. This is a Japanese fashion brand with the Play line being their more casual affordable line. I really am not familiar with fashion at all, but I have seen this beady eyed red heart on a lot of people downtown so literally all I did was Google "heart with two eyes" and I got the designer! Usually the red hearts are on a white background, but for the sake of our pink and red theme, I used some new Bio Sculpture polishes that were sent to me a few weeks ago and they turned out!

After applying two coats of Pink Marshmallow, I hand drew the hearts with a long striper brush, added the eyes and that was pretty much it! 

Polishes used:

(Base Coat) Bio Sculpture Ethos Oxycoat*
(Base) Bio Sculpture Gemini Pink Marshmallow*
(Hearts) Bio Sculpture Gemini Cherry Ripe*, black and white acrylic paint
(Top Coat) Bio Sculpture Ethos Mirror Top Coat*

I also wanted to mention that from now until February 29, 2020, Bio Sculpture Canada is partnering with Canadian Blood Services! #redforlife2020
