Dusky dark blue glitterbomb
Wow, September was a bit of a washout here, only 2 posts all month. But I have a good excuse, really... I got married!
On September 14th 2013, after 14+ on/off years my beloved and I got married... We had a wonderful, relaxed, intimate wedding with our closest family and friends and then spent a fabulous honeymoon relaxing and diving in El Gouna, Red Sea, Egypt. So I'm afraid the blog took a bit of a back seat!
But more importantly, what did I wear as my bridal mani?
I couldn't ever imagine myself going down the subtle, traditional route of an Essie Ballet Slippers or OPI Bubblebath type colour, nothing wrong with those colours but I don't wear them in real life so why would I wear them on my wedding day? I had the same thoughts about my hair and makeup!
Fittingly my choice came about from swatching for the blog a few months ago, I was working my way through another clutch of Nails Inc, swatched a polish and realised it looked just like my wedding shoes!
So here is my wedding mani, Nails Inc Sloane Gardens
Sloane Gardens is a slightly greyed out dark blue glitterbomb.
Swatches shown are 2 thick coats which gave me full coverage. This stuff eats topcoat though, I put on a couple of coats and ended up with a bumpy rather than gritty finish. I didn't mind though as the finish on the shoes wasn't super shiny either....
And if you want to see the matching shoes (and the dress, hair & bow and the totally stunning groom) then the preview shots from our amazing photographer are here -
