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 13 Stars

Hi girlies and welcome to my day 13 entry for the Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge! Today I went with Barry M ‘Black’ as a base and used white acrylic to make the stars. I also topped with a sparkly silver glitter.

I think these look better from a distance because my lines aren’t very straight and some are not the ideal width!

Avon Nail Wraps – Bows for You

Hi lovelies, I have some Avon Nail Wraps to show you today.

As an Avon rep I get to try some of the items in a demo/selling capacity, so I got to try out the nail wraps a little early! I am certain I used the same type of thing from the Avon years ago and found them quite good then.

These are the Bows for You wraps. I found some nails wraps easier to apply than others; some seemed very fiddly to place on my nail, while others were perfect to place. The first one I did was my thumb and there are lots of creases at the tip due to my rubbish first attempt! My middle finger is a little off centre too!

I found the filing tricky at first because I filed the edge of my nail directly and found that I was filing the nail wrap away and you could see my nail tip! So I found I needed to file beneath the nail tip to just file the wrap away.

I love the fact that you put them on, and can get on with anything because there is no drying time. I also love that you can have instant nail art with no fiddly tools and no clean up. I wonder how long they will last….

Glequin Half Mani

So I loved my ring finger on my last mani that much that I had to recreate it and mix it up a bit!

I chose a base of Glints of Glinda – Opi, and a glittery black from Avon .

I then chose a variety of coloured glequins to put on each hand.

This is what I came up with:

So I have red, emerald, baby pink, electric blue and lime glequins; different nail, different colour.

This mani didn’t take long considering all my glequins. I love it! It feels glamorous and sparkly.
