Mani Monday: The Circus Comes To Town
By WGSN Insider

It’s blue, it’s sparkly, it’s a massive nail trend this season. But does it actually look good? Emma Grace Bailey, WGSN Beauty Assistant DIYs the mani everyone’s talking about…

Jul 21, 2015


Here’s the truth: I’m obsessed with nails. Painting them – mine specifically. And while I’m not quite at Marian Newman-level when it comes to mani skills, I’m always game for DIY-ing a new trend. This week, I road-tested a twist on the hottest colour of the season…

The Circus Comes To Town (AKA blue with glitter)

What: Layer Cirque Colors’ Kaleidoscope top coat over Topshop’s achingly chic Blue Rinse hue for a somewhat childlike outcome.

Why:  It’s fun and frivolous so why not? That and blue is THE colour of the season for all things beauty.

Cons: Removing this is hard work. That’s a warning.
