Butterfly Feature Mani

Hey lovelies, how are you all? Here’s a quick butterfly feature mani I did earlier. (All my manis are quickies now I’m a momma!) Here is the last butterfly feature mani I did.

The peachy colour is Nails Inc. Wellington Square and I drew the butterfly wing with my Barry M black & white nail art pens.

Then I Seche’d – you won’t believe how much of a god send Seche Vite is when two seconds after finishing your nails baby needs a cuddle!

Anyway enough waffle, here it is!

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

Cling Film Pedi

I stumbled across a new blog today and was immediately inspired to try out a new nail technique. Kelly, over at Getting Girly with Konad, did a white and pink “Saran Wrap” mani. Now after a little research I found that “Saran Wrap” is cling film here in the UK! I was in love with the white/pink colour combo so decided to stick with that for this pedi. So I painted my base, two coats of Barry M white and Seche. Then I waited a good 20 minutes for it all to dry. Then I painted Opi Pink Flamenco and quickly used my cling film to dab off the polish. Then I painted a light glitter topper and Seche to complete my pedi.

I love how simple this is and how it looks different on every nail depending on how hard/how many times you press the cling film down. It would be easy to make an old mani look new again by using this technique over dry polish. It looks sort of like I could graffiti on my nails now, such a super easy nail art technique. What do you think?

Hi girlies and welcome to my day 14
entry for the Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge! Today I went with my orange w7 polish and white for my accent flower. I used Barry M raspberry for the other flowers.

Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge -Day 13 Stars

Hi girlies and welcome to my day 13 entry for the Oh mon dieu its the rather awesome 31 day challenge! Today I went with Barry M ‘Black’ as a base and used white acrylic to make the stars. I also topped with a sparkly silver glitter.

I think these look better from a distance because my lines aren’t very straight and some are not the ideal width!

I love using white acrylic for nail art, on dark colours it’s so bright!

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!

Green Dotty Bomb Mani

Hi girlies!

I have another ‘dotty bomb’ mani for you (I’m into dots at the moment you may be able to tell!)

I used various greens from my nails Inc. collection including my Glitterbomb:
❤ Knightsbridge green
❤ Belsize grove
❤ Fernshaw road

I used lychee and Barry M black and white nail art pens for my dotty nails.

I painted my Glitterbomb over the two different greens (thumb and ring finger) and I really like the effect!
