Hey lovelies how are you all? I’ve got two stripey pedis to show you today. I currently have a thing for stripes!
I love how you can make it different with just a few colour changes!
Now I have a question for you ladies! I need your help with some nail art! I have a new dress and it’s a bit of a big deal because it’s an actual nursing dress (which are so hard to come by and pricey here!) This is the pattern:
Can any of you amazing ladies help me decide how to paint my nails to match my dress?
Hi girlies and welcome to my day 2 entry for the Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge! I went with Barry M blueberry under an Avon glitter mosaic polish for this mani but it all went a little wrong! I don’t really like the Avon glitter mosaics, they just don’t seem to…’crack’. You can hardly see it!
I dislike how you can hardly see any crack effect but I like the colour!
Hi girlies! Here is a floral mani for you, inspired by Anna Rifle’s stationary range. I saw a tutorial over at The Beauty Department and fell in love with the simple floral designs so I decided to recreate it!
My mani is slightly different to the original but I still like it lots! What do you think? I love The Beauty Department.
Hi girlies, here is a mani that I have wanted to do for a while. I love cupcakes with a passion, I’m a sucker for anything with cakes on! So I was inspired to do a cupcake mani!
I didn’t want to go completely cake mad and have one on every finger so I went for a feature nail. I used mainly Nails Inc polishes for this mani. Base – Grosvenor Street
Dots/Stripes – Beauchamp Place
Glitterbomb – Lavender Close
I also used my Barry M nail art pens for the cupcake itself.
I am a huge fan of cupcake nails, I might go mad and do a little cake on more than one nail next time! What do you think?
Hi lovelies! As you can imagine, I have been dying to try out my nail goodies and I couldn’t wait to try my new Barry M nail art pens, courtesy of my lovely friend Sarah. I had read reviews about the brilliant ‘nib’ like applicator and how simple they were to use. I Googled some designs and found inspiration from Brit Nails Barry M Nail Art Pen review. I loved the jewel mostly and wanted to incorporate that into my mani. I also loved the animal print and wanted to see how easy the pens were to use by trying a few designs out.
This is what I came up with:
I started out with a Rimmel 60 second polish Shocker, and waited for it to dry completely. A coat of Sally Hansen’s insta-dri came in handy. When my polish was dry, I set to work drawing my designs. The pens are very simple to use and the design did not ‘drag’ when I had to colour over certain parts again. I added a glitter tip/gradient to my index and ring finger as this is the colour I recently had on my toes and I loved this as a gradient. I topped my designs off with a lovely shiny coat of Seche.
I love these pens, I’m itching to try even more designs out already!
Hi beauties, thank you all for your super birthday nails suggestions!
I went with a mix of the suggestions, all except animal print. I used Pocket Money Polishes suggestion of Barry M ‘Lychee’, Elise’s suggestion of birthstone nails and Helen’s party glitter idea.
This is what I came up with…
I chose to do a glitter gradient like I have done previously on the lychee polish because it works so well with the dress I plan to wear! I would have preferred to do a silver glitter gradient ideally because there are silver sequins on my dress, but I still haven’t found the perfect silver for gradients!
My glequin nail is emerald green – my birthstone.
It’s not too different to my previous pedi really. What do you think?
