Hello! Happy New Year! 🙂
Because I have a foul and horrible cold it looks like I’m not going to be doing anything for new year. Booo! So I’ve decided to cheer myself up a bit by revisiting some of my favorite nail art looks of 2015!
I’m going to start with this Fiery purple Mani!
This flame filled nail art I created for the Pick and Mix Challenge, I used Sally Hansen HD in Cyber, I’d Melt For You from China Glaze and Konad Special polish in Black.
The stamping plate is MM27 from Messy Mansion.
You can find the original post here
I really like colour changing/ UV reactive nail colours, I think I’ll getting a few (by a “few” I really mean a lot) more next year!
The difference between inside and outside is huge! 🙂 Hehe I even received a couple of messages from people who thought this was two different manicures oO
I used In Your Dreams, Desert Valley and Crowd Surf all from Ruby Wing and the stamping plate is from Born Pretty!
You can find out more about this look here
Next is my Misty Graveyard nails!
This mani made me so happy! I do love Halloween! I think I’m going to try and recreate it as some nail polish jewelry!
Here my original Misty Graveyard post
This purple gradient!
If there is a reason for me to love stamped gradients it’s this mani! The stamping plate is from the Bridal Nail Collection from Messy Mansion
You can see all the products I used here
Another stamped mani I loved are these metallic stripy roses
This was another Mani for the Pick and Mix Challenge! For this I used Artemis (purple) and Aglaia (teal) from the 2true Metallica Collection and all of the striping tape! 🙂 I did try to find a link for where to buy these polishes… But I couldn’t find one, I do hope they haven’t been discontinued as they really are amazing metallic polishes for stamping!
Here is the original post about them
I couldn’t leave out my super cute Neko Atsume nails! the original post is here and yes I am still playing the game! 😀 and no I haven’t got all the cats yet 😦
This holographic water marble for your viewing pleasure! The original post is here
Water marbling is still a very hit and miss technique for me, and Ive definitely managed to miss more lol. I should probably practice more 😀
And finally this double stamped leadlight mani! This one didn’t photograph too well but it was so pretty!
The original double stamped rose post you can find here
Haha I just noticed that most of these manicures are Purple, Black and Silver! Hmm I wonder what my favorite nail polish colours of 2015 could be…
Since my camera died (that was a bad day) I’ve really felt that my photography has suffered, so on my list of stuff I need is a new camera! I have made my mind up on getting a Bridge camera of some sort, I did have a look at getting a DSLR but I think I have enough stuff to be geeky over already, and going down that route I really can see it becoming a very expensive hobby! 🙂
I’m not really one for new years resolutions, but there are a couple of things that I really would like to do for my little blog, The first thing is my blog layout, I do like the theme I use at the moment, but it’s not exactly what I want, and I definitely want to keep the monochrome colour scheme, as I find really brightly coloured backgrounds really distracting and draw attention away from the images. I haven’t found exactly what I’m looking for, but I’m sure I’ll come across something I like 🙂
Another thing I want to do is to create a blog logo, This is probably something I should have done right at the beginning when I first started my blog, but for some reason I just haven’t sat down and started to design it! That’s going to be something fun to look forward to doing! 🙂
Last year I was really rubbish at sharing anything to any social media platforms, I only kept up with twitter and G+ because they are automatically posted… Me + Social Media + 2015 = really rubbish But I did finally get round to sorting out my Instagram yay! So next year ( or this year depending on when you are reading this) I’m going to comment more on other bloggers wonderful posts, share more of my work in the lovely nail art groups I’ve joined, possibly do another nail art challenge (but probably not the 31 days tho lol) 😀
I really hope you will/have had a fabulous start to 2016 and that this new year brings you Glitter, Happiness and Inspiration!
