Hey Everyone! 😀
After all the Halloween craziness I realized that my brain and my nails needed a bit of a rest, so for the past few days I have been wearing this very neutral gradient!
There is a little tip wear but it’s surprisingly not too bad, especially seeing as I have been scrubbing fish tanks and gardening!
I used three polishes for this, Modern Love from Deborah Lippmann, Snow Me White from Sinful Colors, and Illamasqua Matte Topcoat.
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!

I decided on some neutral colors as I’ve been using so many dark and metallic polishes lately I really needed a change!

Hallo! For day 25 of the (am I ever going to get this finished) 31DC2014 challenge, I have chosen this rather amazing dress from the Fall/winter 2014 collection from Alexander McQueen!

Anyway on to the nails!
I used Tickle My French-y from O.P.I for the nude base then the Black is Twilight from Filthy Gorgeous, and the white is Ivory Skull from Sally Hansen.
I have to admit that I’m not amazingly happy with how this turned out, It looked a lot closer to what I had imagined before I applied the top coat, the brush strokes gave it a lot more of a textured almost fuzzy look, rather than my nails looking a bit like moldy strawberries lol!
I started out with 3 coats of the O.P.I polish, it’s a lovely colour that I won in a giveaway along with 3 other O.P.Is 😀 I’ll post swatches and a proper thank you to the lovely lady who ran it when I eventually finish this challenge!
Then using a thin brush I painted on the zig-zag pattern and started to fill in the rest of my nail with the black, then I added the white in wiggly lines…
I’m annoyed that I didn’t think to take photographs before adding the top coat but I had to take this off quite quickly because of having a job interview so I had to have slightly more sensible nails!
Even though this didn’t turn out as well as I had hoped (I’m going to blame the fact that I’m dreadfully out of practice) It’s not that terrible, I think this would look nice with replacing the white with a bright colour, maybe a neon blue or purple!
