NOTD: Jeans for Genes Day

Jeans for Genes is a British charity raising awareness and funds for children with genetic disorders; today, September 20th, is their national fundraising day whereby people wear jeans to school/work in return for a donation. Now that I'm not at school, and not yet working, I decided that I'd like to show my support on my blog - with a denim-inspired NOTD post! Here, I've used one coat of Barry M's 'Denim' over one coat of OPI Nail Envy. I love 'Denim'; whilst it looks almost frosted in the bottle, it dries to a semi-matte finish on the nail and in my opinion, looks just like denim.

Once this was dry, I used an Allura Stamping Plate (P21) and a gold Technic polish to stamp on the zip details; my nails are slightly too long for the zips to fill the nails, which I think would have looked better, but nonetheless I'm pretty happy with how they turned out!

I then added a coat of Nail Envy as a top coat, but I kind of wish I hadn't as I much prefer how it looks matte as opposed to glossy - ah well, you live and learn! Which do you prefer?

If you are able to and would like to make a donation to Jeans for Genes, you can do so here; remember, every little helps so anything you can afford to give will make a difference!
Have you heard of Jeans for Genes Day before? Are you supporting it at school or work this year?

  1. They look so cool! I've tried one of those stamping tools before, but all I ever get is a big blob of smudge! Never heard of Jeans for Genes day, but it's a good concept :) x
