Butterfly Feature Mani

Hey lovelies, how are you all? Here’s a quick butterfly feature mani I did earlier. (All my manis are quickies now I’m a momma!) Here is the last butterfly feature mani I did.

The peachy colour is Nails Inc. Wellington Square and I drew the butterfly wing with my Barry M black & white nail art pens.

Then I Seche’d – you won’t believe how much of a god send Seche Vite is when two seconds after finishing your nails baby needs a cuddle!

Anyway enough waffle, here it is!

Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge -Day 25 Inspired by a Movie

Hi girlies and welcome to my final day 25 entry for the Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge! I decided to only do a few of these challenge days because I am so busy at the moment, I am currently on holiday and will be until the 23rd August so I am sorry that I’m not posting much!

I decided to try out watermelon nails for this day and was inspired by the

“I carried a watermelon!” line from Dirty Dancing.

I used an Avon polish called Watermelon and my lime Barry M polish. Then I used my darker Barry M green and my Barry M pens for the details. What do you think?

Hi girlies and welcome to my day 6 entry for the Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge! Today I went with my Nails Inc new neon shade, Westbourne Grove for the base and Draycott Place for the leopard print. I then outlined with my black Barry M pen.

Galaxy Mani

Hi lovelies, I couldn’t wait to get my old chipped nail polish off and replace it with something beautiful and shiny! So I went for a galaxy nails mani. I’ve previously done this on my toes here, but never on my fingers, so I fancied a galaxy mani.

I used different colours this time; more greens and purples and only one glitter. I also used my silver Barry M pen to dot some stars.

I used the sponging technique again and I love the results! I like how it all looks a big mess when you begin sponging, but with a coat of glitter and Seche it becomes beautiful nail art!

Green Dotty Bomb Mani

Hi girlies!

I have another ‘dotty bomb’ mani for you (I’m into dots at the moment you may be able to tell!)

I used various greens from my nails Inc. collection including my Glitterbomb:
❤ Knightsbridge green
❤ Belsize grove
❤ Fernshaw road

I used lychee and Barry M black and white nail art pens for my dotty nails.

I painted my Glitterbomb over the two different greens (thumb and ring finger) and I really like the effect!

Someone give me another technique; I’m driving myself dotty mad!

Models Own Artstix

Hi girlies, I have a Models Own Artstix mani for you today and I absolutely love it!

I purchased this at the same time that I got my Revlon Moon Candy polish. It’s quite a fluorescent shade of pink! The glitter is beautiful; hexagons, squares, circles of all sizes and I spotted lots of colours like gold, silver and a bronze coloured tone.

I painted two coats of the base colour and painted the glitter on top of my 3 alternate fingers – it only really took one coat of the glitter. This is one of the best glitters I have tried, as it went on really well with only 3 strokes over my nail. Then I used my Barry M Black Nail Art Pen to dot a border design on my remaining naked nails.

Although it’s really bright for my fair skin tone, I love it! It is such a lively, shiny summery colour and the glitter is great for coverage too.

I think I will try more of these Artstix! Do you like it?
