I realized that I haven’t created any candy corn nail art this year oO so here are some Candy Corn Coffin nails! 😀
That random bit of thread is really annoying, the more I look at it, the more it looks like a creepy spider leg Ugh!
The polishes and other stuff I used are
- Messy Mansion – MM11
- Bundle Monster – BM-402
- Hit The Bottle – Black
- Sally Hansen – Lite
- Rimmel – Shirley Temple
- Sinful Colours – Snow Me White
- Colour Club – Antiquated
- Seche Vite
Starting with a white base I used Lite, Shirley Temple and Snow Me White for the gradient, then using Hit the bottle black for the coffins.
The little coffins are from Plate MM11 the larger coffin is from BM-402. then using a tiny brush I added the gold detail with Antiquated.
Then finished it off with a layer of topcoat!
I hope you have a lovely Halloween weekend! 😀
I realized that I haven’t done any actual Christmas nail art this year! I have done Snowflakes and some in Red and Gold but nothing really Christmasy!
So here are my Christmas nails!
This is what I used
- Sinful Colors – Snow Me White
- Butter London – Come To Bed Red
- Revlon – Hot For Chocolate
- Models Own – Sardonyx
- Color Club – Antiquated
- OPI – Its All San Andreas’s Fault
- Color Club – Black-ish
- Revlon – Emerald City
- Seche Vite
- Konad SP Black
- Stamping Plates HD05 and QA86
- Nail Studs
- Striping Tape
This really took a long time to finish, but most of that was getting all the striping tape lined up.
For the stripy nails I started with Snow Me White, then the striping tape and a couple of coats of Come To Bed Red, it really was quite bumpy so I added two coats of top coat to even it out.
The tree is Emerald City, and some nail studs! The little reindeer is from plate HD05 and the snowflakes are from plate QA86. I did actually double stamp the snowflakes with Antiquated and Konad Black but the gold doesn’t really show up over the stripy background
On my ring and middle fingers I applied two coats of Sardonyx this polish is from the Models Own Velvet Goth collection so it dries matte, I un-matted it with a coat of Seche Vite.
For the candles on my ring finger I used Snow Me White, Antiquated and Black-ish, I painted them with a little paintbrush.
The Christmas Pud on my middle finger is a mixture of Hot For Chocolate, Its All San Andreas’s Fault and Black-ish. I used Its All San Andreas’s Fault for some added texture. For the cream I again used Snow Me White the Holly is Emerald City and Come To Bed Red! I didn’t add any more topcoat over my pudding, so it would keep it’s texture! 🙂
This Christmas Mani took hours but I really like it 😀
I hope you have a lovely Christmas! 😀
After having a quick hunt about on the interwebs for blue nails trying to get some inspiration I came across loads of pictures of Turquoise gem stone nails, and this is my attempt at them! 🙂
For this I started with two coats of Air-kiss from Filthy Gorgeous which is a lovely mid blue cream.
Turquoise Water Spotted Nails
Then when it was dry I used cling film (saran wrap) to apply Catwalk Couture from Seventeen which is a slightly paler blue cream polish, along with a couple of drops each of Golden from Revlon and Antiquated from Color Club, and a tiny bit of Blue-Topia a dark blue jelly also from Color Club I put them all onto a plate and swirled the polishes around a little then gently dabbed the mixture onto my nails.
Then using Twilight from Filthy Gorgeous (which is also a really good black for water marbling) I used the water spotting technique to apply the black, and I should probably stop using my expensive perfume to do water spotting, but my nails smell lovely after lol!
Then I used Color Club Topcoat, and unfortunately ended up with a little bit of dragging on my thumb
I’m definitely going to be doing this again, hopefully when I can keep my nail art on for longer than 24 hours! 😀
I couldn’t wait to do some nail art over the Real Color Nail polish from my last post you can find that Here. The colour is so perfect for a Valentine’s Day Mani!
Valentines Day Nail Art
I started by making the gradient on my Thumb, Ring and Middle fingers, for that I used Revlon Black Magic. For my Index finger and Pinky I stamped using Messy Mansion Plate MM16 William Morris and friends, you can find that Here.
I also used an image from this plate for my Ring finger, I used Color Club Antiquated for that, it looks more silver than gold in the photos
Valentines Day Nail Art
For my Thumb and Middle finger I used Moyou Pro Plate 07 XL
As a valentines day Mani goes I think that this one is really rather dark and vampy! 😀
But I’m not really a pastels kind of girl! 🙂
