Black And Silver Water Marble

This is my first ever (just about) successful water marble! 😀 It’s taken me ages just to get this technique to actually work! *does happy dance*

It’s far from perfect, there are loads of bubbles and I missed a big bit on my thumb :/ also the clean up was an absolute nightmare! Even with taping up my fingers, the silver polish is lovely but the sparkles are really sticky!

I started off with a base of Pumice from Sally Hansen, I created the water marble in a paper cup with two polishes from Orly, Liquid Vinyl which is a glossy black creme and Dazzle which is the sparkly silver metallic.

I found it worked best when the water was slightly cooler than skin temperature rather than at room temperature, I was in my kitchen and it tends to be a bit cold in there!

I am so happy that I have finally managed to do a water marble! 😀


Anti Valentines Nail Art!

Today I have some very Anti Valentine’s day nails to show you!

I don’t think I could have made this any less valentine’sy!

I started out with two coats of Pumice From Sally Hansen, then using a make up sponge I applied patches of Pure Midnight which is also a Sally Hansen Polish.

Then I used a combination of cling film and tiny bits of sponge to add Barry M Grey, China Glaze Galactic Grey and Color Club Shabby Drab to create the stone effect.

I used two Bundle Monster Plates BM-426 and BM-413 for the stamping, I used Konad Special Polish in Black, then with a thin brush I added some Lumin-iceant from Color Club to the letters.

I also used Lumin-iceant for the stamping on my thumb, unfortunately it doesn’t show as well as I would like 😦

I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite, but then decided it would look better in matte so I added a coat of Matte Finisher from E.L.F!

I think that’s enough hate nails from me! And I hope you have a lovely Valentine’s day what ever you are doing! 🙂


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! 🙂


Little Silver Owls

After a busy day yesterday I now have a Facebook Page and a page on Google+ 😀 Setting those up took rather a lot longer than I thought, so I ended up not having enough time to write anything after doing these cute silver owls!

For this I started with a sponged gradient of Revlon – Black Magic, Maybelline – Couture Grey, Sally Hansen – Pumice and Nina Ultra Pro – French White.

For the stamping I used Moyou Suki Collection 01 with Barielle shades Night Moves and finished it off with a coat of Color Club 60 second topcoat.

I used the same part of the Moyou plate for the Glitter owls in my first post!

This was a nightmare to photograph, my poor camera was absolutely hating it, unfortunately the photographs don’t show all of the detail 😦 so you’ll have to take my word on how amazing this looks lol!
