Spiralling

20 Sep

Hello! I’m back! My nail polishes still don’t have a home but I couldn’t wait any longer to get them out and start blogging again!

As it’s been about a month since I last did anything more complicated than put a single colour on my nails I decided to ease myself back into the world of nail art with a bit of stamping!

The good thing about having moved is that you get a fresh start and that means I’m making an effort to use some of the polishes that don’t usually make much of an appearance on here but definitely should! It’s like falling in love with my hobby all over again!

I’m looking forward to catching up on all of your blogs over the next few days!

Polishes used:

  • MoYou – Black
  • Barry M – Emerald Green
  • Sinful Colours – Call You Later
  • China Glaze – Smoke and Ashes
  • MoYou Sailor Collection 05

OMD2 – Animal Print

21 Jul

This day of the challenge was perfect for finally getting round to using my MoYou Pro Plate 05.  I was feeling a bit ‘goth’ when I did these so went with a red and black theme and spiderweb prints!

The red and black clingfilm mani alone was gorgeous, but with silver spiderwebs and a matte top coat I think it looks pretty much perfect for Halloween – shame it’s the middle of July!!

Polishes used: 

  • Rimmel – Exotica
  • MoYou – Blck
  • China Glaze – Stone Cold

OMD2 – 3D

12 Jul

I have never attempted 3D nails before, the most 3D I get is sticking on a rhinestone or metal stud.  I bought these roses a while back on a bit of a whim and have never used them so today is the perfect opportunity!!  For some reason whenever I fancy doing a rose themed manicure my brain always thinks of stripes as the background and today is no exception!! Instead of the usual pinks and pastels that tend to go with roses I went full out Goth with a black and grey stripe 🙂

I LOVE bright colours!  This day of the challenge gave me a chance to recreate my rainbow gradient from earlier on in the year….I decided to add a waterfall design over the top too, because more colours is good! Bright nails just make me smile 😀

Stonecold Chevrons

4 Jun

These were my birthday nails from a few weeks ago, not very glamorous or complicated, but I spent far too long in the bath before getting ready to go out so ran out of time for anything extravagant!

Polishes used:

  • China Glaze – Stone Cold
  • MoYou – Black
  • Nails Inc – Lanesborough Place

Pastel Galaxy Nails

28 May

Another post with my fabulous new Nails Inc polishes!! I can’t get enough of using these, seriously!  I started with a base coat of Holland Park Gardens and then used the dry brush technique with my other two colours to create my pastel base coat.  I almost left it at that, but the little voice in my head thought it’d look even better if I added some white stars to it so I cracked out one of my untried MoYou plates (Pro Plate Collection 05) for the job!

 

I’m totally going to have to try more pastel/alternative coloured galaxy nails now, I really love these!

Polishes used: 

  • Nails Inc – Wardour Street
  • Nails Inc – Little George Street
  • Nails Inc – Holland Park Gardens
  • Sinful Colours – Snow Me White
