Halloween Nail Art! Gore, Glitter And Flies!

Halloween Blood And Flies

Halloween Blood And Flies

For this bloody look I started with base coat and a nude base colour I used nude from Barry M.

Starting with the darkest red which is Perfect Plum From Sally Hansen new lengths range, I dabbed it in patches over my nails, I used the same technique with Ravishing Dahling from China Glaze, so I had patches of dark red.

While it was still wet I added Double Decker Red from Rimmel London over the unpainted parts of the nail, then some patches of Elle’s Spell from Barielle Shades for some sparkle! Then While it was still wet I mixed it about a little with a dotting tool to give it a slightly marbled look.

This took ages to dry even with fast dry top coat! but when it eventually was I used the Halloween stamping plate from Messy Mansion for the flies with Konad SP in Black. I finished it with one last coat of fast dry top coat from Color Club.

Pink Glitter Zebra Nails Stamp

I had to cut my nails! *CRIES* I had a washing up accident and broke two of them D: Now that I have short nails my fingers feel all weird… I don’t think I like it…

Pink Glittery Zebra Nails

Pink Glittery Zebra Nails

For this I used Heli-yum from China Glaze as the base colour, It is a lovely rich pink cream, I used two coats, I followed that with Make A Spectacle also from China glaze, which is a pretty and very sparkly iridescent hex and micro glitter in a clear base.

The zebra stamp is from Moyou it’s Pro Collection Plate 4. I used konad special polish in black for the stamping.

The topcoat I used was 60 second fast dry topcoat from color club,  I have decided to finish the bottle before I open my next bottle of Seche Vite!


Pink Silver Glitter MoYou Suki Collection Nail Stamp! (And a Challenge To Myself)

I have given myself a little challenge, well not so much of a challenge maybe more of an ultimatum…

I own a quite a few stamping plates from MoYou. I really like them, They are really good quality and the images are fantastic! The XL size is perfect, unfortunately the standard size is a little to small, but I find that with most stamping plates. Maybe my nails are just to long for them 🙂

I realized that I only use a couple of images from each plate, so, my challenge to myself is to use the images I wouldn’t usually choose, or ones that I haven’t used, and at least three from each plate! and when I have done that then I will buy some more! 😀 And by some I mean the whole Mother Nature Collection which I absolutely love!

This is my first one 😀

Moyou Suki Collection Plate XL 06

The image I have chosen is from Moyou XL Suki Collection 06 I haven’t used this image before (not even to try out) because I think it looks a bit like an orange or maybe a grapefruit slice! If you know what the image is please let me know!

For this I started out with two coats of pink silver glitter, from Barry M, with two coats of Frilly Knickers from Butter London on top. This picture unfortunately doesn’t show anywhere near how sparkly the polish is. For the stamping I used Konad Special Polish in black. Then as ever finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite.

Now that I actually have this image on my nails I actually quite like it! 😀


Purple and Pink Glitter Leopard Nail Art

Glitter Leopard Gradient Nails

Glitter Leopard Gradient Nails

I started with one coat of Amethyst from Sinful Colors, this polish is a really nice colour, it’s a mid purple creme, (I’ll do a swatch at some point) I used it as a base colour to tone down the very bright pink polish I chose for the gradient.

For the sponged gradient I used Black on Black also from Sinful Colors and Ulterior Motive from Color Club, which is a fantastic bright magenta pink jelly with iridescent pink and blue micro glitter. The gradient took two coats, I had to work very quickly as the glitter kept sticking to the sponge!

For the leopard print I used Moyou XL Pro Collection 04, and Konad special polish in black.

I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite. Not including the clean up this only took me 15 minutes!

St Mark’s Square

St Marks Square

St Marks Square

This is a really nice lilac foil, really nice to apply, good consistansy and flow from the brush, fast drying, not as much pigment as I would like but it is a very pretty colour, this was two coats.

Clifford Street

Clifford Street

Clifford Street

Clifford Street is a lovely dark purple grey creme with gold iridescent glitter, it is lovely to apply, really nice consistancy, good amount of pigment, the gold glitter adds depth to the polish. there was some dragging while I was applying this polish, this was two coats that dried quickly.

Old Bond Street

Old Bond Street

Old Bond Street

Old Bond Street is a lovely mid grey with pink shimmer.  this is a really lovely polish, such a shame it is a limited edition it is great to apply and fast drying,

Franklins Row

Franklins Row

Franklins Row

Franklins Row is a dark purple with purple and blue iridescent glitter and blue shimmer. This is an amazing colour, so sparkly! This was three coats it has a slightly sticky consistency probably from all the glitter the flow from the brush is much slower and so is harder to apply than the others.

Cheyne Walk

Cheyne Walk

Cheyne Walk

Cheyne Walk is from the Mirror Metallic range it has a pink/purple metallic finish this too 3 coats. It is a very pretty colour, easy to apply, but slower drying than I would like.

Oxford Street

Oxford Street Matte

Oxford Street Matte

Oxford Street is a matte black this was one coat dried in a matter of seconds, a bit tricky to apply because it dries so quickly, but this is a fantastic matte polish, it states on the bottle that this won’t last as long as the other Nails Inc. products. Unfortunately this is a hard to find limited edition! It has lots of pigment so was very messy to remove.
