Race for Life.

Hey Lovelies (:
So I apologise for my lack of posting, I had naked nails for over a week but lots of ideas to do them. So here's my Race for Life nails that I would've done for the 14th when me and my best friend did the 5k R4L in Derby in honor of her friends mum and everyone else who has either survived, been lost or lost someone due to cancer.  



I started off with a base of China Glaze 'White on White' which is my favourite white polish that I've used before. I then did my ring fingers with my avon dotting/ striper tool that I've also used before. I dotted in a sparse 'C' shape firstly with Sally Hansen 'Dorian Grey', then Barry M 'Cyan Blue, BM Gelly Hi-Shine 'Pomegranate' and 'Blue Grape' and slightly smaller dots coming backwards off of the 'C' shape in order to make the new Cancer Research logo.

I then used the symbol from Bundle Monsters 'BM-321' from their 2012 collection. I painted the top half of the image with Barry M's Gelly Hi-Shine 'Grapefruit' and the bottom half with 'Pomegranate' and scraped downwards to create a slight gradient before stamping on to my nails and then covered with Seche Vite 'Fast Dry Top Coat'. Bundle Monsters plates are the stamping plates I started with and are my favourite. I got these from Bundle Monster for $23.79 (Including shipping to the UK).
