Hi girlies and welcome to my day 7 entry for the Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge! Today I went with my silver holo polish and green bedazzled glitter.

I don’t think you can really tell that I used a holo polish with this silver, I would love to try a decent holo. Any suggestions?

Moon Candy Ruffian Mani

Hi you lovely lot, I was trying to be very good and not buy any more polishes when I came across the Revlon Moon Candy range. It has a base colour at one end and a glitter topper at the other. Well I just had to try it out! I opted for Orbit, which is a deep purple with a blue/purple glitter.

For this mani I started out with two coats of Maybelline silver and a coat of holographic silver. Then I carefully painted my ruffian with the base colour. Then I added the glitter topper mainly on the tips of my nails.

What do you think? I love the glitter, it’s more like flakes than glitter. Flakes of moon candy!

Nail Challenge Day 17: 3D

Hi beauties! It’s day 17 in Julie’s 30 day nail challenge and the theme is 3D.

I ordered some studs off eBay, both gold and silver in this size and small caviar balls. I chose to use these for my 3D mani as there is a day on caviar. I chose Barry M lilac because it is a favourite of mine, and my feature nail is my FGL prism holo polish. I placed the studs on with tweezers onto tacky clear varnish-much the same way I apply my glequins. Then top coated with 2 coats.

I am useless at keeping up with the links page since I’ve been back at school-hope you can forgive me!

Nail Challenge Day 13: Ruffian

Hi all and welcome to Julie’s 30 day nail challenge and today the theme is ruffian.

First I painted 1 coat of silver polish and 1 coat of holographic prism. Then I used Barry M ‘navy’ to paint over the top.

I then used glequins on my index and ring finger in blue too-they are hard to see in the pictures but were really sparkly. I love this mani, it looks glamorous and for my first ruffian, I am proud I got the lines straight yay!

Tape Mani

I really wanted to try out my new tape so I painted my nails with my smoky plumes Avon polish and my ring finger pink with a holographic top coat.

Then I did a criss-cross on my holo nail and painted smoky plumes over it and carefully peeled the tape off to reveal the holo underneath.

I found it quite simple to do but that’s because I only did the one nail! It takes a while to cut the tape and stick it in the correct places. I think you need lots of patience for this, but I really like the effect and there are so many things you could do!

New Polishes

Hi everyone, I have three new polishes! Two of them were bargains; I was shopping in a local supermarket and noticed there were some Rimmel polishes that were half price. One was similar to the Opi colour I’d set my heart on, but for a fraction of the price, called ‘desire’ and the other was a 60 second polish called ‘grey matter’.

The third polish is from Filthy Gorgeous London, a brand that I have never tried before. It is a holographic polish that I am very excited to try!

I was trying to be good and not buy anymore but it is a very big weakness of mine!
