Not Another Springtime Mani!

Hey Everyone!

Gothic Gradient Nail Art

I am so thoroughly not in the mood for “spring” nails! Pastel, pastel shades everywhere!

It’s definitely Spring, the plants are growing, the birds are singing and my cherry tree is covered in lovely flowers.

But I still want to paint my nails black! πŸ™‚

This mani has roses, that’s kind of springtime(ish) yeah?

Gothic Gradient Nail Art

The gradient is Seance from Illamasqua, and Evil from NYC, the image is from Moyou stamping plate Gothic 03 and Hit The Bottle Black as Night.

I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite then a layer of Illamasqua matte topcoat.

I realized earlier (while I was doing a spot of gardening) That my nails are to long! This is a bit gross but I could probably grow a decent sized potato from the amount of soil I had to clear out from under them! It’s also becoming increasingly challenging to pick up small things lol!

I almost chopped them all off earlier, but, I thought it would be fun to try some other nail shapes before I do! πŸ˜€

I really do love the Smoosh technique, it’s so easy to do (if a little messy) and it always works, unlike the cling film (saran wrap) technique, for some reason I seem to mess that up more often than I get it to work!

The stamping image is on plate 14 from Moyou’s Mother Nature collection!

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! πŸ˜€


I’m Still Ill!

Hey everyone!

I'm Ill Nail Art

Ugh I’m still ill! So far this year I have only felt well for around half a day (yeah, I know there have only been six days of this year so far) :/ and it sucks!

So here are some “I’m Ill and feel like poop” nails.

I'm Ill Nail Art

The base colour is Zombie Flesh from Dollish Polish. then I used Plate MM25 along with Hit The Bottle Black for the microbes.

The Bio hazard symbol is from Bundle Monster BM-418 I used Aglaia and Arete both from the 2true Metallica Collection. I did start off trying to line them up, but that didn’t really work.

I finished it off with a layer of Seche Vite then a coat of Illamasqua Matte topcoat.

I’m going to go back to being wrapped up in blankets on my sofa!

I hope you are having a much healthier week than me! πŸ™‚


Perchta

Hallo! πŸ™‚

Perchta inspired nail art

Here are my nails inspired by another rather gory Christmas tradition!

In Germanic mythologyΒ Perchta is a white-robed female spirit. She was known as a wild goddess of spinning and weaving.

Perchta roams the countryside during midwinter, and enters peoples homes at Christmas time, she would know whether the children of the household had behaved well and worked hard all year. If they had, they might find a small silver coin next day. If they had not, she would slit their bellies open, remove stomach and guts, and stuff the hole with straw and pebbles.

She would also slit people’s bellies open and stuff them with straw if they ate something on the night of her feast day other than the traditional meal of fish and gruel.

Lovely o_O

Perchta inspired nail art

There really are so many really rather gruesome bits of Christmas/Midwinter folklore out there, being dumped in a sack and dragged off to hell, beaten with sticks, eaten by giant cats… It’s all a bit bloody!

Anyway enough blood and guts… For my nails I used O.P.I Solitaire as the base, I’m not really a huge fan of textured polishes but this pearly white with silver glitter really does look like snow.

The snowflakes are from stamping plate QA86 from Born Pretty stamped with I’d Melt For You from China Glaze.

The red drippy french tips are Tip Your Hat this is also from China Glaze.
