Hi everyone!

If you’ve noticed that I haven’t been posting quite as much lately, it’s because I’ve been exceptionally busy over the past few weeks. With this in mind, I was trying to throw something together for a post today when I realised it was the perfect reason to do another #5minutenailart post! It has been a while since I’ve done one of these, but a lack of time is exactly why I came up with the idea in the first place. I explained all that in my first #5minutenailart post last year. Basically, I force myself to do some quick nail art by allowing only 5 minutes to turn a plain-colour manicure into some fun nail art.

I started off with a base of Morgan Taylor Danced and Sang-ria. On my middle and pinkie nails, I added some glitter using Crowstoes Buy Polish. For my ring finger, I used Vapid Cyberpunk and Born Pretty Store plate BP-L078.

The colours of the glitter and the stamping work well together and by mixing the two, it allows the two blank nails to become a cohesive part of the whole look and you save time by not having to do any art on those two nails.
