The Daily Nail blog's S'more post, as I wasn't sure how to mimic the look of a chocolate bar. I do like it, I find the nails look more like chocolate from a distance or if you squint :P The other two nails are inspired the Galaxy bar wrapper.
I was very very hesitant about this design, I kept thinking of backing out and just doing a regular galaxy manicure. But I thought if I didn't try it I won't learn otherwise so I went for it, I'm really glad I did as this is fun (and food)!!
Another thing making me not want to do this was not owning a chocolate brown. Recently I did some de-stashing and got rid of quite a lot and hopefully they'll be going to more caring homes. I haven't given them away yet so I was looking through the bag and found Paris Collection - Mauve Melody, I thought it was too purple-y but it was the best I had, everything else was too dark or too light. Turns out Mauve Melody was perfect!! The formula was great too, just glided on, the purple turned out to be shimmer only in the bottle. I've decided to keep it for whenever I need a medium brown for nail art, it can stay with me :)
The darkest brown is w7 - Brownie and since my brown polish is not in the medium brown categories for the actual chocolate pieces I had to mix polish to get the right colours. The slightly darker half is a mixture of w7 - Brownie and Paris Collection - Mauve Melody. The lighter half is a mix of Ciate - Cookies and Cream, I would've used Porchester Square but Cookies and Cream is more runny (and sheer) making it easier to mix.
The purple is Rimmel - Purple Pulse as I wanted a purple that matched the wrapper, that was also in the destash pile and it's staying there, I just hate the colour! It's far too plum and plum is a disgusting colour. The only other brown I used was the light shimmery brown for some of the stripes, which was The Face Shop - GL112.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post, thanks for reading and I hope you have a great weekend!! :)
