NOTD - Kikki K Mint Dayplanner Inspired Nails

Hey Ladies,

Today I have a gorgeous Nail of the Day post to share with you, but first a little back story into what inspired it!

If you have been following me on my Instagram account you should know by now that I recently purchased a large mint dayplanner from Kikki K to help get myself organized and be able to start posting more on my bog and Youtube.

I have had organizers before and had used them in the past for blog organization but sadly the planner brand that I had stopped producing the week to two pages refills in the desk size planner I was using and I hadn't been able to find a new source. Enter my discovery of the Kikki K mint dayplanner! I found this through one of the girls in the Aussie Nails Facebook page and really wanted to get my hands on it.

This pretty mint with gold dots planner is what has inspired my nails for today.

For this manicure I used two coats of China Glaze "Refresh Mint", a gorgeous mint creme finish polish from the Up and Away Collection [2010]. The application of this polish is beautiful and it applies nicely to the nail.

I then decided that I wanted to stamp a design in gold onto each of the nails. Originally I was going to go with a dotted design to exactly match the planner, but I ended up changing my mind to a script image from the MoYou Pro Collection image plate 07. I stamped this image using China Glaze "Passion", a gorgeous pale gold chrome from the Romantiques Collection [2009]

..:: ITEMS USED ::..
Duri Rejuvacoat base coat (1 coat)
OPI Original Nail Envy (1 coat)
China Glaze "Refresh Mint" (2 coats)
China Glaze "Passion" (stamping)
MoYou Pro Collection 07
Stamper and scraper
Seche Vite top coat (1 coat)

As you can see from the images with my planner, "Refresh Mint" has a little bit more of a yellow tone to it than the planner itself, but it was the closest polish that I had to the colour. I had previously tried China Glaze "For Audrey" but it was a little too dark.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this inspired manicure. I have really gotten into organizing and decorating my dayplanner so I may be showing it to you in a little while to show you how I organize my time.
