Magical Music Manis 11: All About that Bass ~ Meghan Traynor

We’re slowly but surely approaching the end of the Magical Music challenge. It’s so fun to do these challenges, so I’m a bit sad to see the end of it. Fortunately today is not that day – this is challenge number 11 out of 13, so we’ve still got a couple to go.

All About that Bass is a tribute to all the curvy ladies out there; it’s about how to love yourself no matter what size you are. Great message! Here’s a bit of the lyrics:

I'm bringing booty back
Go ahead and tell them skinny bitches that
No I'm just playing. I know you think you're fat
But I'm here to tell ya
Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top

The music video is full of pastel colours; here is Meghan with a bunch of balloons:

And here is her choir:

I’m not usually into pastels, they’re too pale for my fair skintone. But I dug deep in the Helmer to find what I needed for my mani.

Here’s my final result:

I used two Pastel polishes as my base: The lilac is #142 and the baby pink is #144.

My index and my pinkie are inspired by the many balloon. I dotted them with three stamping polishes from Moyou (not London).

I used the pink and the blue stamping polishes to stamp on the lips – inspired by the lovely choir.

And it’s all sealed up with topcoat too, just to finish the mani off properly :)

Here are the polishes I used for the mani – this is the first picture of my Moyou stamping polishes – they’re really great! 

Here's a funny screenshot from the music video:

Here’s the video to All About that Bass:
