If In Doubt Add Some Glitter! Purple Stamped Skittle Nails.

Has it really been over a week since my last post? Ooops! I guess I was so wrapped up in Christmas and other stuff that I didn’t even notice!

Anyway I hope your Christmas has been wonderful and filled with shiny things!

Purple Glitter Skittle Nails

For this I started with two coats of Barielle Shades Grape Escape, which is a lovely purple creme followed by two coats of Orly Can’t Be Tamed, Large purple hex and smaller silver hex glitter in a clear base. It’s a really pretty polish but I found that it needed a lot of dabbing to get an even coat of the glitter.

This ended up as a stamped skittle mani because I just couldn’t decide on what I wanted to do!

I used Bundle Monster CYO set, BM-408 for my Thumb, BM-412 on my Middle Finger, BM-411 for the index finger (mutters about the image not being straight) and BM-423 for my ring and pinky fingers! and finished it off with a thick coat of Seche Vite.

I got a bit carried away with the filing and now I have rather stubby nails! But I have to say it is great to be able to type, use my phone properly and do everything else! 😀

Cute Christmas Nail Art

For the Background colour I used a gradient of Sally Hansen – Dive Deeper, Nina Ultra Pro – French White and Revlon – Calla lily.

For the winter trees I used Revlon – Black Magic and a thin nail art brush.

I used Revlon Matte Suede – Emerald City For the Christmas tree with a little bit of the french white for the snow, the little ornaments I used  Barry M – Red Glitter and China Glaze – Glitter Goblin, along with my smallest dotting tool.

The snowflakes are a small dotting tool and some more french white.

For the reindeer I used stamping plate HD05 and Konad SP In Black, with a tiny bit of red glitter for his nose, I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite.

I don’t do much free hand nail art, I should probably practice a bit 🙂

The Birds! Black and Grey Hitchcock Inspired Nail Art!

Messy Mansion Plate mm14

The Birds!

I am still loving my new Messy Mansion plates! 😀 I have been wanting the Birdy plate for ages! And it really is as lovely as I thought it would be! 😀

You can find this lovely plate here!

As soon as I saw the plate I thought of the 1963 Hitchcock film The Birds! 😀

I started with a sponged Gradient using Grey from Barry M and Pumice from Sally Hansen, I let the polish dry a little on the sponge so it would look grainy.

I used black stamping polish from Konad, followed by a coat of Seche Vite, followed by a coat of matte topcoat, I used a coat of SV because my ELF matte topcoat just smears the stamped image really badly (which is why my thumb is hiding!).

Now I think it’s time to file my nails because typing is becoming a bit of a challenge lol! 🙂

Scaly Things!

Sorry about the lack of posts lately, life has been getting in the way! In a good way tho 🙂

I received my new Messy Mansion plates this week! 😀 I chose MM21 which is the Scaly Things plate, MM16 William Morris and friends and MM14 the Birdy plate. The image for today is from The scaly things plate! which you can find here

Gradient With Scaly Things!

For the Gradient I used Tanzanite and Aquamarine both from the Chroma Chameleon collection by Revlon, I found the polishes are a bit on the thin side, so I applied the gradient over a coat of black polish to make the colours pop. For the stamping I used Konad SP in black and finished it with a coat of Seche Vite!

Look at the lovely gold sparklyness! I have to say that this is one of the few gold shades that I like, I’m not a big fan of yellow shades, This is more of an antique gold, there’s no metallic yellow here 😀

I was just going to do a quick swatch of this polish but then my Bundle Monster plates arrived! and I couldn’t wait to play with them! I Chose the CYO set, there are so many interesting images, completely different to any other BM collections!
