I love you like XO

On Monday I went to see Beyonce’s Mrs Carter world tour for the second year running. It was interesting to see how she slotted her new songs into the show. It was amazing not that I expected any less. Now one of my besties has some serious luck, because our seats were AMAZING! We actually thought we were a block further down, but it turned out block 2 is what we thought was block 1. We were directly opposite the stage :O! We had such a good time and are going to try make it our thing. Attending Beyonce’s concerts that is.

One song I’m a bit obsessed with is XO, so I thought why no translate it to my nails.

Anyone else find that oranges are a pain in the bum?! This one took 4 coats!!! -_- It’s the same with all my other oranges except a nails inc one, but even that takes 3 coats for full coverage. Good job I didn’t choose the pink as a base colour as that was look on the sheer side on the brush too. Even with all that though the colours look great together. Plus it’s the colour of an outfit Beyonce had on in the Crazy in love video.

I’m feeling rather proud of this gradient if I do say so myself. Once all the time consuming work was done I went to town with the studs. My thumb didn’t turn out looking great, but it will do. Now every time I look at my nails I start singing XO.

Thanks for reading.

P.S. I have no clue where my Nailtiques has gone. I’ve looked everywhere. It needs to reappear as the Butter London base coat is just no cutting it.
