Mani Monday RMK Clear Grey-Blue and Nail Art Bows

It was my great-aunty's 80th birthday party yesterday and all the family gathered to celebrate with a yummy Sunday lunch. I decided I needed to add a nod to the celebrations in my mani, so popped a cute bow nail sticker from Nail Art on each of my thumb nails. To make the mani a little more sophisticated, I opted for this grey-blue shade from RMK's spring collection (£14) which although I love the colour, it is very dilute (the hint was in the 'Clear' part of the name, I didn't really take notice...) so I actually popped on about 5 coats to get the opaque look I was after. I will have to do another post when I just put on the two coats recommended to show you. I finished off my applying a top coat, which as well as keeps the varnish looking smarter for longer, also helps seal the nail sticker. Do be careful with the nail stickers, as I tried to move them as I wasn't quite happy with where I had put them to start with and tried moving them, which wasn't as successful as I had anticipated, as some of the design was left behind on the nail, but I didn't think I did too badly, and I'm sure Great Aunty Pam appreciated the extra effort!
