Going Dotty

Hey! I'm stuck in bed with such a terrible cold, this is why I hate winter! It needs to be sunny and hot all year round, yeah I definitely need to move... Anyway, time for my Pink Wednesday post which I think is super cute, although I might be a little bias ;) The tips are Barry M Fuchsia with some neon pink Miss Sporty polish on top, then I used Konad Special white polish with BM-19.

French Tips and Fake Tattoos

Hey! I forgot to take a picture of this particular mani but luckily I managed to find a shot of it from a night out a week ago. My friend somehow won some fake tattoos so drunk me put a few on, so I'm afraid the only picture I have has a fake tattoo on my wrist, which I find rather amusing! I just love the lips on my nail, so cute!

Obscure picture is obscure.

I promise you'll actually be able to see my nails properly in my next post!

Gold With A Side Of Injury

Hey! Just a quick post today, as I am currently only able to use my left hand to type, thanks a lovely big burn on my right hand/wrist, which makes typing sooooooooo slow! I used Accessorize Cinder Rose, Barry M Foil Gold and BM-204. And once again I really need to stop taking photos at night and relying on my crap flash...

Bandaged up, sore arm :(

My First Pink Wednesday In Ages...

Hey! I have't done a Pink Wednesday in ages, oops! I blame college and not being able to wear nail polish there :( With this mani I started off with Barry M Strawberry Ice Cream, then sponged Barry M Bright Pink and Revlon Bubble Gum to make a nice little gradient effect. I put a nameless Bourjois glitter on the tips too, because I love me some glitter! I also used Barry M Silver Foil with BM-223. I really need to stop taking my pictures in the evening, I end up having to use flash which is completely PANTS and you can't see the details clearly!

Snake Print?

Hey! I can't believe I haven't posted in over a week! I'm such a bad blogger! Today I have a snake print mani. Well I think it looks a bit like snake print, my sister disagrees though :P First I started off with MissGuided Missbehave, then sponged on Gosh Wild Lilac and Barry M Bright Purple. I stamped BM-215 with Barry M Gold Foil on top and used a matte top coat. Hope you like it. :)

Rainbow Animals

Hey! Today I have a post inspired by the amazing Cristina at Let Them Have Polish, if you haven't checked out her blog yet you really have to! Of course, mine looks no where near as amazing as hers, but I tried! I used BM-221 and BM-223 with Konad Special Polish, but I don't remember all the colours I used. :P

Happy Halloween!

Hey everyone! I hope you all having a greet Halloween and have been dressing up! Unfortunately I'm suck in bed with a migraine, so no Halloween for me, boo! But I did go to a Halloween party on Saturday, so I'll post a picture of me in my little outfit as well as my Halloween nails. :P

This mani is my first splatter I've successfully done, so I'm pretty happy with the results, but I did feel pretty breathless after all that blowing, haha that sounds totally wrong but I don't mean it like that! :P I used Barry M White, Bourjois Rouge Escarpin as the blooooooood and BM-12 for the chains with Konad Black polish.

And here's me in my Halloween costume, I'm a dead bride. My husband killed me, how rude!

Zig Zag

I always decide to take pictures of my nails at really bad times... like at midnight. I don't remember what brand the red polish is, my friend painted them in manicure class, training to be a beauty therapist has it perks :P But the red looked a bit plain on it's own so I spruced it up by using the amazing Barry M Instant Effect Gold Foil, which is AMAZING for stamping as you can probably tell, for stamping BM-201.

Purple and Silver

Hey! Kinda loving this mani, even with my shorter than short nails, and loving how amazing well the Barry M Instant Effect Foil polishes stamp! I can tell I'll be using them all the time! Although I do wish the gold one was more of a gold colour... Anyway, the purple is NYC Prince Street (which is my favourite purple polish evah), used Barry M Instant Effect silver foil and the BM-212 plate.

Hey! I have a bit of a weird mani today. I don't really do yellow nails (apart from their natural yellow stained colour :p) but I saw this mani on a blog (don't remember which one) ages ago and have been meaning to try it out ever since. They look a bit like gunshots, right? Because that's what I was going for, haha. The yellow is an unnamed Miss Sporty polish (I have said it a thousand times, but Miss Sporty NAME YOUR POLISHES!), the black and white are the standard Konad stamping polishes and the plate is BM-202.

Smelling Of Roses

Hey! Two posts in two days, aren't you guys lucky ;) I've had such an obsession with grey nail polish recently, I just feel like that's the only polish that looks good on my short nails. I don't know why but when I look at this mani I think of Quentin Tarantino, which is a bit weird. The grey is an unnamed H&M polish, the pink is Revlon Bubble Gum (which is scented) and I stamped BM14 with White Konad Special Nail Polish.

Cute As Cupcakes

I can't believe I haven't posted in a month! It makes me sad! The reason I haven't posted in aaaaaaaages is because I started a college course and I'm doing beauty therapy! Which is pretty excited, but I'm not allowed to have my nails painted and my nails have to be kept short :( So I haven't really bothered with my nails and when I did do them I never took a picture of them. I have a few manis to upload over the next few days though, gotta get into the blogging swing again :)

The purple is Gosh Wild Lilac, the plate is BM14 stamped with White Konad Special Nail Polish and the cute little pink gems are from ebay.

The cupcakes match my pyjamas! :D

Don't Get Lippy With Me

Hey! As soon as I saw the lips on my new BM plates I knew I needed a silver mani with red lips! I wish my nails were long/the lips were smaller so I could fit more than one lip on each nail, when my nails are longer I'm so going to be doing this mani again! The polishes I used were Barry M Silver and Red Konad Special Nail Polish with BM-02.

Late Pink Wednesday

Hey! I'm so bad at posting my Pink Wednesday nails on Wednesdays, oops! But better later then never eh? For this mani I was inspired by Vettelicious, as I always love her mani! Mine looks no where near as good as hers though. A few of my nails were a little messy and didn't like how they turned out, but I did like the polka dots and glitter! Polishes I used where Missy Sporty nameless pink (Y U NO NAME POLISHES?!), NYC Prince Street and Accessorize Ruby Sparkle.

Left hand:
  Awkward hand pose is awkward.

Right hand: 

I really hate the scar on my thumb :/

I ordered some more BM plates and they came today (YAY!), I'm so excited to try them all out!

When The Sun Don't Shine

Hey! So I've been waiting very patiently for 3 days for the sun to shine so I could get some pictures which show of the duochrome yumminess of Natural Collections Lunar Haze, but the English weather must hate me because it's been grey and raining everyday! I've had to settle with an overcast day though as I wanted to redo my nails.

In the (lack of) sun this polish has the really cool light blue glow to it. 

In the shade.

Because this polish is SO SHEER, and I hate VNL, I did a coat white polish before the Lunar Haze. But as this polish was under £2 I can't really complain.

Leopard Obsessed

Hey everyone! I'm a bit obsessed with leopard print at the moment, so I have another leopard print mani to show you, haha :P I was lacking inspiration so I took inspiration from here. The polishes I used were Berry Ice Cream and Blueberry Ice Cream both by Barry M, then used Black Konad Special Nail Polish to stamp BM-221.

Shatter It Up!

Hey! You know when you think your nails are dry but they actually aren't, so you carry on with other things like normal, and then you look down at your nails and they're all a bit scuffed? Well this happened to me the other day when I was getting ready for a night out and I only noticed my nails were ruined minutes before I had to get the train. It was so annoying and stressful! So I quickly put some white shatter on top, then some glitter and ran for the train like a mad man! Luckily I made it just in time and did a top coat on the train, but from now on I'm defiantly going to leave more time before going out for my nails to dry :P

The nail polishes I used where: Natural Collection Lunar Haze, which is a GORGEOUS purple duochrome but it's very sheer so I did a layer of Barry M Boots Limited Edition first (Lunar Haze will get it's own special post sooner or later, because it's such a stunner). Then on top is Barry M White Shatter and a unnamed Bourjois glitter polish.

Yet Another Pink Wednesday

Hey! Just a quick little post today as I'm very sleepy and off to bed :P For this Pink Wednesday I did a base colour of Rimmel Grey Matter, whipped Essie Super Bossa Nova (LOVE!) in a curved fashion on top, then finished it all of with a fimo flower.

I have my first ever driving lesson tomorrow and I'm SOOO NERVOUS! So wish me luck! :P

Half Moons

Hey! I've been meaning to do half moon nails for a while now and I've finally got around to doing them! Well that's a but of a lie, I tried doing them a few months ago, did one nail which turned out DISASTROUS so gave up, haha. I like how it turned out this time, but I would have liked it more if the stupid red wasn't so darn thick! And the thickness led to bubbles in the polish, sad face!

The polishes I used were Orly Pure Porcelain and a gorgeous franken red which I really should name, seeing as how I often go on about how I hate unnamed polishes! I also lost my beloved Seche top coat at my friends the other night, I'm blaming that on the tequila, so the only top coat I have at the moment is my matte top coat, which a bit of a bummer.

Mixed Up

Hey! Yesterday my mum, sister and I went to the Zoo (which was super fun) so I decided I needed animal print nails for the Zoo. I had no idea what kind of animal print to do though, so as I was googling to get some ideas I saw this mani and I just knew I needed to do my nails like it!

For the gradient I started off with 2 coats of MissGuided  MissBehave, which I got free in a Cosmo magazine years ago but have never actually used it, then I sponged some Barry M Berry Ice Cream diagonally and finished it off with sponging Rimmel Aqua Cool on top. The plates I used for the stamping is BM-221 (leopard) and BM-223 (zebra) with Black Konad Special Nail Polish.

Blingtastic Pink Wednesday

Hey! For this Pink Wednesday I was in a bit of a sparkly mood, I wanted bling and I wanted sparkle... so that's exactly what I did, haha! This was my first time putting gems on my nails, and boy is it fiddly business! Took me forever to get the flowers looking right! The pink is an unnamed Bourjois polish, as you may know I hate when polishes don't have names!!! Then I did 2 coats of Collection 2000 Sparkle Top Coat and  I added some gems which were from ebay.

I got bored of all the flowers and decided to just have a green line of bling on my thumbs, kind of like a flower stalk. (I was trying to stay within the flower theme...)

P.S. I can't believe I've got over 100 followers! Thanks to everyone who's followed me and reads my posts! I love you all!

Glitter Gradient

Hey! Today I have for you a glitter gradient! I've been waiting all day for the sun to shine so I could take a decent picture, but alas Mr Sun decided to stay behind the clouds so you can't see the holo goodness of the glitter. The silver glitter is Models Own Juicy Jules and the purple is Accessorize Ruby Sparkle. I can tell you now, I'm REALLY excited to take all this glitter off :P
