Rainbow Nails

here are my rainbow nails for day 9 I started with a coat of white, I used Ivory Skull from Sally Hansen.

Then I used these polishes for the gradient,

  • Illamasqua – Poke
  • China Glaze – Frostbite
  • Sinful Colors – Happy Ending
  • Maybelline – Electric
  • Rimmel – Double Decker Red

It took three coats, then I applied a thin coat of Prism from Filthy Gorgeous for some sparkle.

After fighting with nail tape for around half an hour I gave up and freehand painted the stripes, which is why they are a bit wobbly lol!

I think these are a bit too bright and colorful for me!

I decided that I wanted some pretty spring time nails! And here they are! 😀

I started by making the rose decals, for these I used

  • Sally Hansen – Grass Slipper
  • China Glaze – Near Dark
  • Rimmel – Double Decker Red
  • Sinful Colors – A Slice To Go (striper)
  • China Glaze – White On White
  • Color Club – Top Coat

I applied a coat of white on white over my base coat, for two reasons the first so that the greens would pop and the second being that green stains my nails more than any other colour!

For the braid I used

  • Zoya – Logan
  • China Glaze – Agro
  • L’oreal – Owl’s Night
  • China Glaze – White On White

After I finished my braided nails I ended up having to do some washing up (ugh) and the tips of my nails ended up with a few little chips 😦 Booo!

I applied my rose decals with a little bit of color club top coat, then sealed them in with another coat over the top.

I think the greens I chose where a little too dark but it still looks pretty 🙂

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.
