Baby's Breath and Wild Orchid

Hey Lovelies! Long time no see, so to speak!
I have still been painting my nails, not always taking photos, because i'm a total fail, but the ones I have photographed, I've finally sorted through :). Time flies, dontcha think? It's been ages since I last blogged, but doesn't feel like that long. 
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, New Years, Valentines, etc!

I started with two coats of Baby's Breath, it wasn't fully opaque, but I left it as it was since I was covering parts up with WO anyway :). Baby's Breath is a really delicate pale pink crelly, with mixed iridescent glitters which set it off and making it unique.

One coat of Sally Hansen 'Insta-Grip Fast Dry Base Coat' - £1.50 from Fragrance Direct
- Two coats of Dollish Polish 'Baby's Breath' - $5/$10 from Dollish Polish
- Zig zag nail stencils - $2.50 from Up Your Nail 
- One coat of Dollish Polish 'Wild Orchid' - $5/$10 from Dollish Polish
- One coat of Glisten and Glow (HK Girl) 'Fast Drying a Super Shiny Clear Topcoat' - £6.55 from Rainbow Connection 

 I then placed the regular zig zag nail vinyls from Up Your Nail, and covered them with one thin coat of Wild Orchid. Since Baby's Breath is such a subtle, pale polish, and Wild Orchid is pigmented enough, it only took one coat to be completely opaque. I love the finished result, and the combination of colours. I allowed the coat of Wild Orchid to dry for 40 minutes, so that when I removed the vinyls, there was little damage and that the pattern didn't merge.
Wild Orchid is a lovely pinky purple, creme with a scattered holographic effect.
