Rhinestone Spider Born Pretty

Rhinestone Spider

NYC 001 – Evil

The other things I used for this mani are

  • NYC – Evil
  • Color Club – Lumin-Iceant
  • Moyou Pro Collection XL stamping plate 05
  • Seche Vite

I started out with two coats of Evil, it’s a nice black cream but, that name! Evil! Who thought that one up? ugh!

I used Lumin-Iceant to stamp the spiderweb design from Moyou Pro 05 and topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite

When that had dried it was time to apply the spider, But I found this…

Rhinestone Spider

Not very flat at all!

The back of the spider wasn’t flat, it looks to be something to do with the manufacturing process.

So I decided to remove it using an old metal nail file, it only took a couple of minutes and it worked really well! Although it was a little bit fiddly to keep a good grip on the spider while filing as they are tiny!

Now I have a flat bottomed spider. I applied a thick coat of Seche Vite to my ring finger nail and positioned it on my nail using tweezers, and gently pressed it onto the nail until the topcoat had dried.

I think these little spiders are really cute, but I really like spiders! :D


Stained Glass Nail Art

Hello! :)

Today I have Stained Glass nail art to share with you

Stained Glass Nail Art

Stained Glass Nail Art

For this I used

  • Revlon – Stiletto
  • Rimmel – Shooting Star (Space Dust)
  • Filthy Gorgeous – Prism
  • Moyou Gothic Collection 04
  • Konad Black
  • Seche Vite
  • Permanent Marker Pens

Stained Glass Nail Art

I started our with a Glittery base, I used two coats of Shooting star followed by one coat of prism.

As Shooting Star is a textured polish, I added a coat of Seche Vite for a smooth surface to stamp over.

I used Konad Special Polish in Black for the Image. Then another coat of SV over the stamping!

Moyou Gothic Collection 04

My first attempt to add colour to my stained glass nails was with my tinted polishes, and it really didn’t go well! It was lumpy, bubbly and the colours really weren’t bright enough. I had only  tried this on my index finger so I hid the horrible mess with a coat of Stiletto.

This was a bit of an experiment to see if it would work! I coloured in my nails using permanent marker pens! I only tried it because I thought I was going to take off the polish and start again!

It’s very pretty but It’s probably not the best idea I’ve had… I should probably invest in some good quality tinted polishes!

I didn’t add any topcoat over the ink, I tried on my pinky nail and the Seche Vite dissolved the colours, so I covered that with a coat of Stiletto as well.

Permanent Marker Pens…

I didn’t wear this for very long, and I wouldn’t recommend colouring in your nails with permanent marker pens!

GLITTER!

I decided to try out a new (to me) technique for this mani. The technique is called Smoosh Attack (amazing name!) and you can find a pictorial tutorial right here Smoosh Attack.

Over a coat of Snow Me White I Smooshed a mixture of Blue Streak, Orchid Express, Moonstone and a a little bit more white polish.

When it was dry I added the glitter polishes Make a Spectacle and Flash Cosmic.

Then I applied a coat of Seche Vite to smooth out the glitter.

Messy Mansion MM21

I used Stamping Plate MM21 From Messy Mansion, I was going for an angled gradient with the scales, but that turned out to be a lot more tricky than I was expecting. But this looks much better than how I pictured when I was planning it. :D

For the stamping I used Konad Special Polish in Black and Moonstone.

Then I added a final coat of Seche Vite.

Tomb is a Grey Jelly base with loads of mixed pink and purple glitters along with holographic micro glitter!

I absolutely love this polish! It’s all of my favorite polish colours in one bottle! :D Look at that holo sparkle! Oh and It looks so squishy!

Moyou Gothic Collection 04

I couldn’t resist doing a little stamping over this, with a name like Tomb it needed some gravestones!

The image is from Moyou Gothic Collection 04 and for some reason the stamping was not working :( this was the third try, and I’d had enough so I just tried to tidy it up a bit with my Barry M Nail Art Pen…

couldn't resist adding the gravestones.

Couldn’t resist adding the gravestones.

At least they look like gravestones now rather than a dreadful mess lol! :)


Stripey Metallic Roses

Hi! :)

Metallic stripey rose nail art

Metallic stripey roses

Today I have another 52 week pick and mix (catch up) mani to show you, the prompts for that week (beginning 2nd March) are Metallic and Ikat…

I’m really not a fan of Ikat nails so for this post I’m just using the metallic prompt.

close up!

The two Metallic polishes I used are Artemis (purple) and Aglaia (teal) from the 2true Metallica Collection.

I started off with a coat of Aglaia, then when it was dry I applied the striping tape to my nails (and my desk and the floor and even my keyboard :/)  and added a coat of Artemis.

Removed the tape and applied a coat of Seche Vite.
