Not Another Springtime Mani!

Hey Everyone!

Gothic Gradient Nail Art

I am so thoroughly not in the mood for “spring” nails! Pastel, pastel shades everywhere!

It’s definitely Spring, the plants are growing, the birds are singing and my cherry tree is covered in lovely flowers.

But I still want to paint my nails black! 🙂

This mani has roses, that’s kind of springtime(ish) yeah?

Gothic Gradient Nail Art

The gradient is Seance from Illamasqua, and Evil from NYC, the image is from Moyou stamping plate Gothic 03 and Hit The Bottle Black as Night.

I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite then a layer of Illamasqua matte topcoat.

I realized earlier (while I was doing a spot of gardening) That my nails are to long! This is a bit gross but I could probably grow a decent sized potato from the amount of soil I had to clear out from under them! It’s also becoming increasingly challenging to pick up small things lol!

I almost chopped them all off earlier, but, I thought it would be fun to try some other nail shapes before I do! 😀


Smooshed Blossom!

Hey! 🙂

Purple Smoosh Stamped Blossom Nail Art

I hope you are having a lovely start to your week! 🙂

I decided to start this week off with some pretty blossom nail art!

Purple Smoosh Stamped Blossom Nail Art

The background is a Smoosh of

  • Rimmel – Ultra violet
  • Color Club – Foil Me Once
  • Illamasqua – Prosperity
  • O.P.I – Purple Perspective

I really do love the Smoosh technique, it’s so easy to do (if a little messy) and it always works, unlike the cling film (saran wrap) technique, for some reason I seem to mess that up more often than I get it to work!

The stamping image is on plate 14 from Moyou’s Mother Nature collection!

Rainbow Rocket Ships!

Hello! 😀

Rainbow Rocket Watermarble Nail Art

Today I have these Rainbow Rocket Ship nails to show you 🙂

Rainbow Rocket Watermarble Nail Art

I stamped these over my rainbow watermarble, for that I used OPI Color Paints, ILNP My Private Rainbow.

Here’s the link to the rainbow water marble before I stamped the rockets over the top! 😀

 

Rainbow Rocket Watermarble Nail Art

The stamping plate I used is from Messy Mansion and it’s plate MM33

Rainbow Rocket Watermarble Nail Art

I’m actually kind of sad that I had to take this off so soon. Polish only seems to stick to the patch on my middle finger for around half a day before lifting, to say it’s annoying is a quite an understatement!

I think it might be down to the glue I used this time, Sally’s where out of my favorite brush on glue 😦

but this is the only thing that’s annoying me about it, the split in my nail hasn’t gotten any worse, the little bit of bruising has gone, and it’s not hurting any more! Yay, all I have to do now is wait for it to grow out! 😀


I’m Still Ill!

Hey everyone!

I'm Ill Nail Art

Ugh I’m still ill! So far this year I have only felt well for around half a day (yeah, I know there have only been six days of this year so far) :/ and it sucks!

So here are some “I’m Ill and feel like poop” nails.

I'm Ill Nail Art

The base colour is Zombie Flesh from Dollish Polish. then I used Plate MM25 along with Hit The Bottle Black for the microbes.

The Bio hazard symbol is from Bundle Monster BM-418 I used Aglaia and Arete both from the 2true Metallica Collection. I did start off trying to line them up, but that didn’t really work.

I finished it off with a layer of Seche Vite then a coat of Illamasqua Matte topcoat.

I'm Ill Nail Art

I’m going to go back to being wrapped up in blankets on my sofa!

I hope you are having a much healthier week than me! 🙂


My Favorite Posts Of 2015

Hello! Happy New Year! 🙂

Because I have a foul and horrible cold it looks like I’m not going to be doing anything for new year. Booo! So I’ve decided to cheer myself up a bit by revisiting some of my favorite nail art looks of 2015!

I’m going to start with this Fiery purple Mani!

Purple Flames nail art

This flame filled nail art I created for the Pick and Mix Challenge, I used Sally Hansen HD in Cyber, I’d Melt For You from China Glaze and Konad Special polish in Black.

The stamping plate is MM27 from Messy Mansion.

You can find the original post here

I really like colour changing/ UV reactive nail colours, I think I’ll getting a few (by a “few” I really mean a lot) more next year!

Ruby Wing Gradient

The difference between inside and outside is huge! 🙂 Hehe I even received a couple of messages from people who thought this was two different manicures oO

Ruby Wing Gradient

I used In Your Dreams, Desert Valley and Crowd Surf all from Ruby Wing and the stamping plate is from Born Pretty!

You can find out more about this look here

Next is my Misty Graveyard nails!

Misty Graveyard Nail Art

This mani made me so happy! I do love Halloween! I think I’m going to try and recreate it as some nail polish jewelry!

Here my original Misty Graveyard post

This purple gradient!

Purple and Black Gradient With BN05

If there is a reason for me to love stamped gradients it’s this mani! The stamping plate is from the Bridal Nail Collection from Messy Mansion

You can see all the products I used here

Another stamped mani I loved are these metallic stripy roses

Metallic stripey rose nail art

This was another Mani for the Pick and Mix Challenge! For this I used Artemis (purple) and Aglaia (teal) from the 2true Metallica Collection and all of the striping tape! 🙂 I did try to find a link for where to buy these polishes… But I couldn’t find one, I do hope they haven’t been discontinued as they really are amazing metallic polishes for stamping!

Here is the original post about them

Neko Atsume Nail Art

I couldn’t leave out my super cute Neko Atsume nails! the original post is here and yes I am still playing the game! 😀 and no I haven’t got all the cats yet 😦

Holographic Watermarble

This holographic water marble for your viewing pleasure! The original post is here

Water marbling is still a very hit and miss technique for me, and Ive definitely managed to miss more lol. I should probably practice more 😀

And finally this double stamped leadlight mani! This one didn’t photograph too well but it was so pretty!

Roses!

The original double stamped rose post you can find here

Haha I just noticed that most of these manicures are Purple, Black and Silver! Hmm I wonder what my favorite nail polish colours of 2015 could be…

Since my camera died (that was a bad day) I’ve really felt that my photography has suffered, so on my list of stuff I need is a new camera! I have made my mind up on getting a Bridge camera of some sort, I did have a look at getting a DSLR but I think I have enough stuff to be geeky over already, and going down that route I really can see it becoming a very expensive hobby! 🙂

I’m not really one for new years resolutions, but there are a couple of things that I really would like to do for my little blog, The first thing is my blog layout, I do like the theme I use at the moment, but it’s not exactly what I want, and I definitely want to keep the monochrome colour scheme, as I find really brightly coloured backgrounds really distracting and draw attention away from the images. I haven’t found exactly what I’m looking for, but I’m sure I’ll come across something I like 🙂

Another thing I want to do is to create a blog logo, This is probably something I should have done right at the beginning when I first started my blog, but for some reason I just haven’t sat down and started to design it!  That’s going to be something fun to look forward to doing! 🙂

Last year I was really rubbish at sharing anything to any social media platforms, I only kept up with twitter and G+ because they are automatically posted… Me + Social Media + 2015 = really rubbish :/ But I did finally get round to sorting out my Instagram yay! So next year ( or this year depending on when you are reading this) I’m going to comment more on other bloggers wonderful posts, share more of my work in the lovely nail art groups I’ve joined, possibly do another nail art challenge (but probably not the 31 days tho lol) 😀

I really hope you will/have had a fabulous start to 2016 and that this new year brings you Glitter, Happiness and Inspiration!

xXx
