Sorry for the hiatus! Rathy and I had to put Petite on hold for a little bit to catch up in our personal lives. We’re hoping to start posting more regularly again. :-) Thank you for bearing with us!
Here is a simple nail art look inspired by the Scentbird product! :-)
Scentbird recently sent us a complimentary perfume from their perfume subscription service. For $14.95 a month, Scentbird sends a packaged sample of perfume of your choosing or one recommended by their system. The size is perfect travel size (though I’m not positive if it’s under 3 fl oz, the packaging seems about the same size as some of my travel-sized shampoo containers and those are under 3 fl oz.) It’s an interesting idea for those that want to try new scents without having to buy the whole bottle. Personally I really like the perfume bottle designs, sometimes that might be the only reason I get a bottle of perfume :x
Today, we’ve partnered with Julep to bring you guys some potential wedding nail art looks. This was inspired by something blue. I’ve been gushing over the new Julep Shelly, from the Julep January 2015 Maven Box. It is such a perfect shade of robin’s egg blue. It’s a creme polish with a decent finish. The formula is pretty easy to work with if you use light coats between layers. Really really lovely shade of blue, so happy to add this one to my collection.
Monroe is a lovely deep burgundy scatter holo jelly. It is opaque in 2-3 coats, and dries shiny and flat! The swatch photos below are without a layer of top coat! This is not a glitter polish either, so it’s super easy to remove as well.
For this look, I have something borrowed. It is actually something very meaningful to me (as well as my husband), because what inspired this look was the pearl necklace that belonged to my husband’s late mother. I wore it on our wedding day so that she was able to be a part of the ceremony and celebration of our marriage, even though she could not be with us physically.
This is the second look of our wedding nail art set for Julep!
When I think of something new, I think of something that is more bold and non-traditional for a wedding manicure. I came across a really classy modern wedding cake and it reminded me of just that. I decided to recreate design as a manicure.
I painted each layer of the cake design on a different nail using a black, white, and gold color scheme. On my thumb is a hand-painted gold rose/floral pattern on white, on my index and pinky fingers is a black lattice pattern accented by a gold dot, a simple gold dotticure on my middle finger, and a single gold rose over white on my ring finger. This a little louder than the delicate look Rathy created for Something Old, but if you’re feeling like trying something new, maybe this is the look for you. :-)
