ILNP Swatches! Sirene, My Little Glacier (H), Birefringence and My Private Rainbow (L+S)

Hallos!

This is a pic heavy post!

I brought a few polishes from the ILNP sale! I couldn’t resist them!

It took me quite a while to decide on these four, but I had to be strong and limit myself…

I eventually decided on Sirene, My Little Glacier (H), Birefringence and My Private Rainbow (L+S) ๐Ÿ˜€

Sirene

ILNP Sirene

ILNP Sirene

This is Sirene, It’s an amazing multi-chrome! Emerald green, Teal, Purple, Pink, Gold and Lime green!

The colours in this polish remind me of petrol. It’s so pretty!

This is three coats over base coat and no top coat.

The formula for this polish is lovely, it glides over the nail like butter, the drying time was quite fast, I only waited a couple of minutes between coats.

Oh and the brush and the top are lovely too, the brushes are quite thin and flat, and the tops have a fab rubberized feel which gives so much more control over the application!

My Private Rainbow (L+S)

ILNP My Private Rainbow (L+S)

This is an incredible topper, it’s a combination of linear and scattered holographic sparkles.

This is two coats over Twilight from Filthy Gorgeous. with no extra top coat. I really like how even with two coats it doesn’t overwhelm the base colour! The drying time for is really good, I only had to wait a couple of minutes between the coats.

I get distracted by shiny things really easily, I must have looked at this for hours! I have to say my photographs really don’t show how stunning this is!

My little Glacier (H)

This is the holographic version of My Little Glacier,

It’s a lovely metallic silver to blue duo-chrome with stunning linear holographic shine. I have holographic polishes that much less of an impact than this one!

This was two coats over base coat, and again no topcoat for this one, the formula for this polish was lovely, fast drying with amazing coverage. With careful application this could be applied with one coat!

Birefringence

ILNP Birefringence

I have wanted a bottle of this for ages!ย Birefringence is a Blue, Purple, Pink, Gold then Green Multi-chrome!

I did find the polish to be slightly streaky on the second coat (but that could just have been me not waiting long enough between coats) but the third coat was perfect.

ILNP Birefringence

ILNP Birefringence

This is over base coat with no top coat.

The colour shift in this polish is stunning! every time I look at my nails the are a different colour!

Black and Glitter Stripes Half Moon Mani!

Hello! ๐Ÿ™‚

black and glittery half moon nails

Black and Glittery Half Moon Nails

Today I wanted stripey sparkly nails! ๐Ÿ˜€

black and glittery half moon nails

Lava and Twilight

For this I used two coats of Sally Hansen Lava from the Lustre Shine collection, Filthy Gorgeous Twilight, quite a lot of striping tape and some french tip guides (I used the pointy shaped ones rather than the round ones!)

black and glittery half moon nails

so sparkly!

Even though this took a quite a while, the striping tape was not cooperating, I really like this look, and I’ll definitely have to try this with different colours! ๐Ÿ˜€


Moyou London Gothic Collection plates 1 to 4 Review

Hallo!

Today I have the first four plates from the Moyou Gothic Collection to show you!

Moyou Gothic Collection

Moyou Gothic Collection

I have to say I haven’t really been that interested in the more recent collections from Moyou London, but then they had to go and bring this collection out… Oh my poor bank account!

Moyou Gothic Collection plates 01 and 02

Moyou Gothic Collection plates 01 and 02

I have to say after doing all of these I have realized I’m definitely better at stamping onto my nails than onto paper, lol there was polish everywhere!

Plate 01

Plate 01

Plate number 1!

With all Moyou plates I have used the images transfer really cleanly and this plate is no exception! I really like the Dr Who(-ish) weeping angel, the spooky tree, and the couple of symbols from the TV show Supernatural.

There’s one thing that bugs me about these full image Moyou plates, (its with all of them, so not just the Gothic Collection ones) there will be an amazing pattern, for example the patterns on the roof of the carousel, each of those would make amazing full nail designs, but they are they are just to small :/ and they aren’t repeated anywhere else in the collection. Gah! But enough of me complaining ๐Ÿ™‚

I think this plate is closer to a Halloween theme rather than a Gothic one, It really is very cute and there are a lot of images I’ll definitely be using! So I’m not saying that as a bad thing! ๐Ÿ™‚

But I just have to say the middle image on the bottom row… Nothing screams goth like a googly eyed fish monster! lol

Plate 02

Plate 02

Plate 2 was actually the last plate that I stamped onto paper so sorry about the mess :/ I was starting to get really board!

I love the key and lock images, I found them to be a really good size for my nail length, but they may be a touch too long for really short nails. I have a couple of stamping plates with keys on and they are plain and boring, but these little keys have a lot of detail!

I did find that the little skull and crossbones didn’t pick up as well as the other images, (it could just have been me getting sloppy with my technique) I’m going to group them with the nine sets of vampire teeth as images I’m not particularly interested in.

I really like the Celtic knots, I have a few ideas for those already. The ankhs and the skull in a top hat… Very Alchemy Gothic!

Moyou Gothic Collection Plates 03 and 04

Moyou Gothic Collection Plates 03 and 04

On to plates 3 and 4!

Plate 03

Plate 03

These are both Xl plates, I found that the single images are way too big, even for my thumbs! But they might be good for my big toe nails! ๐Ÿ™‚ or they may become useable with some creative stamper squishing!

From the images on plate 3 I think the lace skull is amazing! I actually like all of the lace images from this plate. From plate 4 the images for me that really stand out are the text, tree and the crow. The only image I had a problem with stamping is the little cemetery, it needs a light touch with the scraper, it’s far to easy to scoop out the polish from the center of the hill.

Here are a couple more pictures of the mani I created while messing about with these plates!

Goth Nails!

The polishes I used are

  • Good To Grape – Sally Hansen
  • Fantasy Fire – Max Factor
  • Twilight – Filthy Gorgeous
  • Black – Konad
  • Moonstruck – Seventeen

I started with a couple of coats of Good To Grape, followed by two coats of Fantasy Fire, on my ring finger I used two coats of Twilight.

On my thumb I used the tree image from plate 1 double stamped with konad black and moonstruck, on my index finger nail the rose and fishnet image along with the lace skull on my ring finger nail are both from plate 3, the text on my middle finger is from plate 4 and finally on my little finger nail the key and lock are both from plate 2.

Then a nice thick coat of Seche Vite!

Sparkly Striping Tape Nail Art!

Hi! ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I have a sparklyย mani I created using striping tape to show you.

Striping Tape Nail Art

Striping Tape Nail Art

for this I used

  • Rimmel Space Dust – Aurora
  • Filthy Gorgeous – Twilight
  • Striping Tape
  • Seche Vite

I began with two coats of Aurora, this is a really pretty polish! It is a slightly textured nude with loads of silver glitter, I added a thick coat of Seche Vite to even out the the texture to help stop the black polish from bleeding under the tape.

I used seven strips of tape for each nail, apart from my pinky which only needed six. Starting with my thumb nail I applied the tape, then carefully dabbed on the black polish, then using tweezers removed the tape while the polish was still wet. Then I applied another coat of Seche Vite over the top and continued with my other nails.

I never realized how much easier a decent quality striping tape is to use! There was no curling up, sticking to itself or refusing to stick to my nail!ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

The polishes I used are

  • Seche – Nouveau
  • Chanel – Dragon
  • Sally Hansen – Ion
  • Butter London – Frilly Knickers
  • Filthy Gorgeous – Twilight
  • Konad – SP Black

Spooky Nails

I started out with a sponged gradient ofย  Greige Gardens and Ion, then with a tiny bit of sponge I added a small amount of Nouveau from Seche around the bottom edge of my nail.

When that was all dry I applied a coat of frilly knickers then a coat of Seche Vite.

After adding the stamps I used a thin brush to paint on the grass and added another coat of Seche Vite

For the spooky eyes I used my trusty dotting tools, along with Dragon for the red (it was the first bottle of red polish I found lol) and then with a tiny dotting tool some more Twilight.

Doing this really made me feel a lot better about having to cut my nails. ๐Ÿ™‚

31DC2014 Day 27 – Inspired By Artwork

Hello! ๐Ÿ˜€

Two posts in two days! oO this must be a miracle lol!

For today I decided to get messy and be inspired by Jackson Pollok!

I used the colours (well as close as I have in my stash) from his work Autumn Rhythm number 30.

Inspired By Jackson Pollok

The polishes I used are

  • Color Club – Nomadic In Nude
  • Sally Hansen – Ion
  • Ciate – Pocket Money
  • Filthy Gorgeous – Twilight
Pollok Nails

Pollok Nails

I used two coats of Nomadic In Nude as the base, and then with a cotton bud (q tip) with both ends cut off I blew drops of the other polishes over my nails. I use a cotton bud rather than a straw as I found that I was picking up far too much polish and I was covering most of my hands as well as my nails!

I started with the darkest colour and finished with the lightest.

Then when they where mostly dry (it took ages) I added a thick layer of top coat!
