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?

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.

What do you think?

Pretty Pink Pedi

Hi beauties, here is a little pink pedi for you. I tried to do a glitter gradient like the gradient I did here for the 30 day challenge, but with pink.

I hadn’t got a good pink glitter polish for a gradient, so I used Excuse Moi – Opi Muppets collection. This is how it turned out:


I used a pink to create polka dots on two of my nails too. I think it’s quite pretty, I just need some good glitter gradient polishes I think.

Nail Challenge Day 25: Metallic

Hi all, it’s day 25 in Julie’s 30 day nail challenge and the theme is metallic.

I couldn’t chose which one design to go for, so I went for a variety!



I used many of my crackle polishes for this effect. My thumb is a Boots magnetic polish, then I have opi silver shatter on my index and pinkie, another Boots gold crackle on my middle finger and Barry M crackle on top of gold on my ring finger.

Quite like this, interesting!
