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:

Hope to hear from you all soon! Xo

Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge -Day 8 Matte

Hi girlies and welcome to my day 8 entry for the Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge! Today I went with my 60 second polish ‘grey matter’ and I used the technique I spied on Jacqui’s blog here. I loved the cloud design so decided to try it out!
First I started with this:

Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge -Day 2 Blue

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!

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!

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….
