Almond Mani

Hi girlies, for the first time in WEEKS, I finally felt like painting my nails! Weeks of naked nails made me sad but the smell today really made me feel ill :(

I decided to file my nails into an almond shape because I fancied a change. I saw someone with a Halloween pumpkin mani on almond nails and thought the shape was so different!

I just painted my nails a simple red with glitter today.

Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge -Day 1 Pink

Hi girlies welcome to my day 1 entry for the Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge! I went with my neon Models Own Artstix pink for this pedi because I am loving bright neon colours at the moment! To mix it up I went with a dotty tip (you know I’m dot mad recently!) in various shades; lychee, pink, black and white.

I quite fancy some more neon colours for neon day. But I’m trying not to buy anymore at the moment!

Birthday Nails!

Hi all! I have done two lots of lovely birthday nails today for my friends. Both manis are to match a dress.

The first is a floral/butterfly mani.
The dress this is inspired by has blue and pink flowers with black butterflies.

The second is a nautical mani.
The dress is this is inspired by is royal blue, so I thought a nautical theme would suit.

As you can tell from the pictures I have used a range of techniques and polishes; glequins, Barry M nail art pens, dotting tools, feather polish and glitter gradient.

What do you think of these birthday manis?

More Nails Inc. Oops!

Hi lovely followers, guess who went mad on the Nails Inc. site when purchasing her glitter bomb polishes….

Guessed yet?

Yes that’s right, me!

I purchased a mirror metallic polish, some bronze, silver and gold textured metallic collection polishes and my glitter bomb polishes.

Watch this space for swatches :)

Birthday Nails!

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?
