I’ve almost caught up with the 52 week pick and mix challenge! Yay! 😀
From last weeks two prompts I chose to use just the Non US brand of polish.
This is Tomb. Tomb is part of the 2014 Halloween collection from the lovely UK indie brand Tara’s Talons
Tomb is a Grey Jelly base with loads of mixed pink and purple glitters along with holographic micro glitter!
I absolutely love this polish! It’s all of my favorite polish colours in one bottle! 😀 Look at that holo sparkle! Oh and It looks so squishy!
Moyou Gothic Collection 04
I couldn’t resist doing a little stamping over this, with a name like Tomb it needed some gravestones!
The image is from Moyou Gothic Collection 04 and for some reason the stamping was not working 😦 this was the third try, and I’d had enough so I just tried to tidy it up a bit with my Barry M Nail Art Pen…
Couldn’t resist adding the gravestones.
At least they look like gravestones now rather than a dreadful mess lol! 🙂
Red and Black Houndstooth
Here are my red and black houndstooth nails, these are for the 52 week pick and mix challenge (that I’m now ridiculously far behind on now! Oops) the prompts where Houndstooth along with Orange, Red and Yellow.
Sally Hansen Ruby Stiletto and Revlon Stiletto!
The two polishes I used for this are Sally Hansen Ruby Stiletto and Revlon Stiletto I only noticed the polish names after I had finished lol!
I also used Moyou Pro Collection 07 XL stamping plate for the houndstooth pattern, Konad special polish in black, some french tip guides and Seche Vite. 😀

Hey everyone! Long time to see! 🙂
Illamasqua Velocity, Swarm and Scorn
I have been so busy the past couple of weeks I haven’t had a chance to post anything But more on that later.
Todays post is a catch up mani for the 52 week pick and mix challenge! So here are my Geometric nails! 🙂
The polishes I used for this are Velocity the pinky lilac shade, Swarm which is the black glitter in clear a base and the black polish is called Scorn. I used tape to mask off the bits of my nail!
I think it would have been a lot quicker to create if I had applied quick drying topcoat between the layers of polish!

The last couple of weeks have been rather busy, I’ve spent most of it covered in mud, compost and seeds, my little home is filled with mud and plants, every surface seems to be covered in pots and germinating seeds…After all the planting my poor hands have been in such a state.
Hopefully everything has calmed down a bit now so I can get back to posting regularly! 😀
Today I have a review of some French Tip Guides kindly sent to me from Born Pretty.
Deborah Lippmann Modern Love, Rimmel Space Dust Aurora and Tip Guides from Born Pretty Store
For this I used Deborah Lippmann Modern Love, Rimmel Space Dust Aurora and of course the Tip Guides!
These guides are really good quality, just sticky enough to adhere nicely to the nail with out being so sticky they take off the polish underneath. I decided to really test them by using the guides over the textured glitter polish… Amazingly there was no polish bleeding under the tape!
French Tip Guides
You can find the guides I used here Born Pretty Tip Guides
I decided on some neutral colors as I’ve been using so many dark and metallic polishes lately I really needed a change!

Before I run out of time here is my Pick and Mix Mani for this week! This weeks prompts are Red, Gold and Chevron.
Taras Talons Zombie Blood and Revlon Golden
For this I used Zombie Blood from this years Halloween range from the lovely Taras Talons, It really is a glorious red jelly! The green holographic glitters are wonderful.
The gold polish is from Revlon and it’s called Golden.
very festive colours
I didn’t want to add to much gold to this mani, Zombie Blood Is so lovely I didn’t want to cover it up!
So much glitter! 😀
I applies three coats of the red polish then when it had dried I used striping tape to create the Chevrons and the triangle shapes and carefully added two coats of golden.
Lovely, lovely striping tape
This really is such a festive look!
Snowflake Glitter Gradient
Today I have some more icy snow inspired nail to share with you!
For this I used
- Filthy Gorgeous – Prism
- Chit Chat – Silver Glitter
- OPI – I Snow you Love Me
- Illamasqua – Propaganda
- Konad – SP Black
- Stamping Plate HD05
- Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat
Snowflake Glitter Gradient
I began with two coats of Chit Chat Silver Glitter over my usual base coat, then a couple of coats of Prism. Prism from Filthy Gorgeous has a clear base with scattered fine holographic glitter.
After that had dried I started fishing for glitter in the I snow you love me… I love the glitter in this polish, The suspension base, not so much, the texture really reminds me of uncooked egg white (shudders).
All this took such a long time to dry but when it eventually did, I added the Propaganda with a makeup sponge for the gradient.
The snowflakes are from stamping plate HD05. Then I finished it of with a thick coat of Seche Vite!
Blue silver and holographic Glitter gradient
I really like how this looks, it’s so sparkly in sunlight! 😀
