Hey lovelies how are you all? I’ve got two stripey pedis to show you today. I currently have a thing for stripes!
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:
Can any of you amazing ladies help me decide how to paint my nails to match my dress?
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!
Hi lovelies, I broke up from work for a week today so celebrated with some metallic swatches :)
Silver: Greenwich Park
Bronze: Horse Guards Parade
The coverage is fab and they are super shiny – this is two coats. They are textured polishes and I really like the consistency, they are ‘limited edition polishes featuring a brand new textured chrome formulation to create a show stopping, ultra glossy finish’ according to the website. These are only the second textured polishes I have tried and I think they are great!
Hello fellow nailoholics! I finally got around to trying the 3D flowers that I purchased from Born Pretty Store.
I chose to use one of my teal Nails Inc. polishes as my background. I used my nail art pens to draw a blossom design on my thumb and stuck my 3D flower on using clear nail polish.
I realise now that thinking clear polish would be enough to stick the flower to my nail was a big mistake! I picked up some papers at work today and a sheet slid between my flower and the nail and the 3D flower came clean off :( I have now invested in brush on nail glue (why I never had any in the first place is a mystery!) so I will post a new image of the next 3D experiment soon!
On another naily note, I did a safari manicure on my friend Sarah too.
I used Sally Hansen Complete Manicure in purple pulse for my base colour. I then put some random coloured splotches in the corner of my nail with silver, pink and white. Then I used the black to outline each colour.
I think a lighter base would have been better, the leopard print would have shown up better, but I love this!
