Plastic Bag

It was most sad to hear that Poly Styrene of Xray Spex died yesterday :( Today's nails are for her.

La Femme Orange Cream Swatch

This is three coats La Femme Orange Cream, which is a brightbrightbright orange - the same colour as a Sainsbury's plastic bag, in fact. It goes on OK, it's dirt cheap and you can get it easily from eBay. I got 9 bottles of colourful cremes for £8.49, which was nice. It would have been nicer if I'd got the neons, though, a Poly Styrene manicure really needs some proper dayglo colours. Ah well.

La Femme Orange Cream and Konad m60 and Bundlemonster BM12
Orange Tartan and Chains. Just needs a torn t-shirt and we're done.

I wanted to revist the old days of punk and went for some bright orange tartan nails with chains. For the tartany effect I used Konad plate m60 and Superdrug MUA Shade 2 (black) (which wouldn't get on straight for love or money, but that's alright cos all the 80s punks I knew were quite scruffy anyway) and the Bundlemonster BM12 plate and Stargazer Chrome Silver was used for the chains. All it needs is some big stompy boots, a ripped t-shirt and a pint of snakebite and black to top it all off.
