China Glaze Glitter Goblin

Glitter Goblin is a really sparkly copper and scattered holo polish! Glitter Goblin is from the 2012 Halloween Wicked collection.

I used 2 coats of glitter goblin over black, then a coat of SV as the glitter felt quite textured.

The stamp is MM05 from Messy Mansion! and for the image I used Konad special polish in black. I finished it off with another coat of SV.

Here are my pumpkins! :D Apparently I have to leave them to cure, until the stems are all dry and fall off! I better find some nice recipes!

Messy Mansion MM22

The sparkly orange polish I used is called Shirley Temple and that’s from the Cocktail Colour collection from Rimmel London, it took three quite thick coats until I was happy with the coverage. Even tho I’m not the biggest fan of orange nail polish but this actually doesn’t look too bad it could be the glitter or maybe it’s the Halloween stamp lol!

The pumpkin image is from Messy Mansion plate MM22.

After editing the photos and writing my post I have only just noticed that my ring finger nail the stamp is the wrong way round! Ooops!


GOT Polish Challenge – Indie

Hello! :)

Belle Glamour Discoball

Belle Glamour Discoball

For the GOT polish challenge this week I have chosen to use Discoball from Belle Glamour, It’s a polish I have used a few times but for some reason I haven’t shown it to you all on here,  which is very odd because it’s absolutely stunning!

DiscoBall is a densely packed with micro holographic glitter in a clear base, it took two coats to be opaque!

look at the sparkles!

Here it is out of focus so you can see how amazingly sparkly it is!

Pet'la Plate Peacock 2

The stamping plate I used is from Pet’la Plate. These are really lovely plates from Hungary which have deeper etching than a standard stamping plate!

I really like the geometric pattern of this stamp (even tho I messed up my little finger nail a bit) :D


Leadlight Nails!

Hello! :)

Today I have my first attempt at the leadlight technique to show you!

Leadlight Nail art

First attempt at leadlight technique

I started out by making my own Leadlight polishes! I brought a set of 24 mini (5ml) topcoats from Ebay, I had a few umm “issues” with the seller so it took almost a month for me to get them after ordering… Gah!

When they eventually got to me, I mixed a few drops of different coloured polish into each little bottle. I think I need to add a bit more colour to them as I found they are too sheer at the moment. Oh and I really have to invest in some mixing balls, so much shaking to get them mixed it felt like my hand might drop off :/

My Leadlight polishes

Starting from the top, the colours I have mixed so far are, magenta, pink, light blue, yellow, red, dark blue, green, black, dark purple and lavender.

Pink blue and purple lead light nails

pink blue and purple

I used Ivory skull from Sally Hansen as the base colour, then used Konad SP Black for the stamping. The plate I used was one of my new Born Pretty plates, it’s plate QA88 and you can find it right here

After the stamping polish dried I added a coat of Seche Vite, and started colouring in my nails I used the red, dark purple and dark blue polishes… I have to say the leadlight technique is a bit like paint by numbers nail art lol

When it was dry I added some Glitter top coat from Rimmel over the purple, then another thick coat of Seche Vite.

Even though my little polishes need a bit more work, I think for a first attempt this didn’t turn out too bad! :)


GOT Polish – Purple

Hi! :)

Purple Stripe Textured Nail Art

Purple Stripe Textured Nail Art

It’s Thursday so its GOT Polish Time again! The prompt for today is purple! Seeing as they where already on top of my polish pile I used a couple more of the Sally Hansen Nail Prisms, Burgundy Orchid And Ruby Sapphire.

Look at that colour shift!

I started out with a couple of coats of Ruby Sapphire, Then when it was dry I added the tape, then a thick coat of Black Magic from Revlon then while it was still wet I carefully applied a thick coat of Burgundy Orchid, and very VERY carefully removed the tape.

I did this one nail at a time, I think trying to do them all at once would be a world of sticky tape and polish horror…

Sally Hansen Ruby Sapphire and Burgundy Orchid

Ruby Sapphire and Burgundy Orchid

I’m having to use a hand cream that I don’t really like since I ran out of my beloved Body Shop hemp hand protector… ugh this stuff is so slimy, and bits of fluff keep sticking to me :/

Anyway I didn’t add any topcoat so the ribbed (for her pleasure *giggles*) texture would be more apparent!

Striped Purple Nails

the tape took ages!

I think this is a really fun mani, but it took ages, definitely not something to do if your pressed for time :)

Seeing as this is a got polish challenge mani here’s the link to the pinterest page so have a look at all the other wonderful purple nails :)
