Valentine’s Day Nails

Hallo! :)

valentine's day nail art

Here are my Valentine’s day nails! I have to admit that I’m really lacking in any inspiration for Valentines nail art this year, so this is a rather obvious choice of pink and hearts! :D

The polishes I used for the gradient are A England Camelot, Color Club Foil Me Once and another Color Club polish called Hot Like Lava. The little hearts are Camelot as the base and Foil Me Once over the top.

Because the hearts where quite pronounced I ended up adding two coats of Seche Vite to flatten it out.

one thing creating this mani has made me realise is, I own way more pink nail polish than I thought… And I should probably use them more often!

Dark Stripes

Hello! :)

Dark Striped Nail Art

Here are my dark and stripy nails! This has been adorning my finger nails all weekend :)

Dark Striped Nail Art

I created the gradient with two polishes from Morgan Taylor. Rebel With A Cause and New Year New Blue.

Then I added the striping tape and it took ages! And I failed miserably at getting the tape even remotely spaced correctly on my dominant hand so I gave up after one nail and have been pottering about all weekend feeling very uneven lol!

The black I used is A England Camelot. then finished it off with a layer of Seche Vite!

Dotty Watermarble Nail Art

Hey Everyone :)

Dotty Watermarble Nail Art

My nails today where a bit of an experiment, I needed to something to take my mind off something rather upsetting that happened yesterday.

But nails first! I’ll say a little about what happened at the end of this post.

Dotty Watermarble Nail Art

I started off with a simple black and white french tip, I used A England Camelot and SinfulColors Snow Me White. Then using a large dotting tool I added the first layer of dots along the line of the french tip, then using a medium sized dotting tool I added the next lot of dots. After they had dried I applied a thick layer of Seche Vite.

For the watermarble I used OPI Color Paints. Magenta Muse, Purple Perspective and Turquoise Aesthetic. Then I finished it off with a coat of Illamasqua Matte Topcoat.

This mani ended up being way better than I was expecting! But you could get the same effect by stamping over a watermarble lol.

My unhappy news (I’m not going to be offended if you want to stop reading now).

I had to have one of my Ratties euthanized yesterday :( Wednesday night he lost the ability to stand and started having seizures.

It my vet said that it looked likely that he had a very aggressive brain tumor, and that his symptoms would only get worse.

I know having him pts was the kindest thing to do, but I’m still shocked at how quickly it happened. Up until Wednesday he was one of the biggest, strongest, healthiest, bouncy ratties that lived here with me.

It’s very sad but I know he’s not in pain, and that he’s had the best life that I could provide.

Sleep well Mr. Seth. I’m going to miss you little buddy.


Teal Nails!

Hello! :)

teal nail art

I was really in the mood for teal nails, but I really couldn’t decide between gradient or stripes, so I went with both! :)

The four polishes I used are from Illamasqua,

  • Nomad
  • Venous
  • Kink
  • Viridian

I also used striping tape, a cosmetic sponge, the little triangle studs and of course Seche Vite top coat.

Rainbow Rocket Ships!

Rainbow Rocket Watermarble Nail Art

I’m actually kind of sad that I had to take this off so soon. Polish only seems to stick to the patch on my middle finger for around half a day before lifting, to say it’s annoying is a quite an understatement!

I think it might be down to the glue I used this time, Sally’s where out of my favorite brush on glue :(

but this is the only thing that’s annoying me about it, the split in my nail hasn’t gotten any worse, the little bit of bruising has gone, and it’s not hurting any more! Yay, all I have to do now is wait for it to grow out! :D
