NOTW 21: Pancake Nails!

It's Pancake Day! The time where everyone tries to make homemade pancakes and ends up buying pre made ones because they're sick of failure! (Well... that's what happens with us anyway!) I was so excited to try this design out and I think it's come out really well. This weeks Nails of the Week is inspired by pancakes! I wanted to create a design that looked like pancakes with syrup or chocolate on and I really like the result!

I used the water marbling effect to create the swirls and this was the first time I'd tried this technique and got it to actually work! It took a while to get everything right but overall I think it's great for a first attempt. The colours I used were Sally Hansen's 'Dune' (cream/nude) and Essie's 'Glamour Purse' (brown). I wanted to create a swirl pattern more than the normal pattern as I thought it would look more like syrup that has been poured on top. I love this design and I think I will be using this technique in the future now I know how to do it properly! I love the colours of the polish too; Dune is a pretty cream colour and Glamour Purse is a rich brown!


Do you make your own pancakes? What is your favourite topping?! Let me know!

Until next time...
