sunday nails #38 - speckled effect

I hope everyone is having/had a lovely Sunday, I have been working all day which is rubbish. Personally i think it should be illegal to work on a Sunday, I was going to say everyday but I feel that may be slightly extreme. I have been a bit of a rubbish blogger this week and I apologise, I literally have all of these posts planned and written in my diary (scheduling is not my forte haha!) but I have felt so drained and tired this week that I literally haven't been able to do it, which is probably why I should learn to schedule my posts! ;) I just find it easier to type in the moment sometimes, so I suppose its swings and roundabouts eh?
Whilst at work, I was dreaming up todays nails and came up with this..

pink speckled nails
l'oreal confetti top coat

Now I know that you probably think that I am really late to the speckled nail train, although i have done it before I just thought I would try it with a different colour and what better colour than pink right?!

I used MAC saint germain as a base and then applied l'oreal confetti top coat on top to create the speckled effect. I absolutely love the colours, they remind me of mini eggs or baby birds eggs.
What have you lovely people been up to today? 


  1. I think that colour combo is great, i am yet to try out my loreal polish to see what other colours will look great against the speckles :)

    1. Thankyou sweet! It is such a good polish to play around with as every combo looks completely different!

  2. Wow these are gorgeous! I love the colour combination so much. x
