Day 15 - Delicate Print

Hi Guys, 
I'm Charlie and I blog over at Charlies Wonderland!
Rachel has very kindly asked me if I would care to fill in for her while she is away and continue with the 31 day challenge! 
I picked Day 15, delicate nails.... Why oh why I did is beyond me! I was struggling and struggling to think of something that did not include stamping (due to lack of stamping gear .... please santa!)  
So anyway, I went to a wedding (sounds odd as I am typing this on Thursday in preperation for my very busy weekend!!) anyway, I went to my future (i hope) brother and sister in laws wedding yesterday and I knew how I wanted my nails, due to them being bitten right down I also knew it would call for some falsies!  
So off I popped to the cheapy shop where I get all my false nails from, and I got some for 99p! I also picked up some little pearls while I waws there, they can be used for allsorts they are nail specific ones. 
I got home and set to work. I knew Id have a hard time trying to stick the pearls on once I had the nails on my fingers so I decided I would do the nails first then stick them on!
Never Again!! I spent most of the afternoon chasing nails around my desk, and getting them stuck everywhere! Oh and then when I did finally stick them on realised I had forgotten to make them shorter so they are friggin huge!
Anyway so I eventually finished and this is what they look like, I hope that you like them, I think pearls are very delicate so it does go with the challenge theme!

 I used Ciate - My fair Lady as the base, then popped the pearls on whilst still very slightly tacky, and finished with a top coat, much easier than it sounds!

A lovely close up, should of picked a better nail haha

See how I mean the nails are very long!!!

In the natural (dusky) light of my window!
