90's Nails #2 - Spice Girls

Hi!

After my first 90's Nails post went down so well (and I enjoyed it so much), I decided to do the Spice Girls nails requested by Chloe. Now, I've done Spice Girls nails before, and they were less than pretty. Observe:


Yucky!! I really wanted to do the same kind of designs again, to see how much I've improved (or if at all) at nail art since that challenge. I mixed it up a bit, and went for a simpler Adidas 3-stripe instead of that heinous attempt at a logo.




I like these so much more than the original ones. I did the lines, stripes & leopard print freehand using the best nail art brushes that I've ever tried, these ones:


You can get them on eBay here for just over €2 including postage (ignore what the listing says about not shipping to Ireland, they do ship here). They do take a few weeks to arrive, but they are worth the wait!

I used so many polishes for this that I didn't even bother listing them, but if you want info on any particular polish used, just shout.


I'm glad I gave them another go. The thinking cap is now on for the next 90's inspired mani!
