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

One Of Those Days...

Do you ever have one of those days where stamping just doesn't go right? Well today I had one of those days, I had to stamp all my nails like 3 times and even now I'm not happy with the results but I've given up for the day as it's far to frustrating, espically as my stamping was so perfect the other day. The blue is Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream, the yellow is a nameless Miss Sporty (NAME YOUR POLISHES!!!) and then I stamped BM-224 with Konad Special Nail Polish in black.

Wild Pink Wednesday

Hey! So today I have for you some leopard print nails with french tips on top! I'm kind of loving them apart from I broke a nail as soon as I had finished! Such bad luck, it makes me so sad and now one of my nails looks weird :( The pink is NYC Fashion Ave Fuchsia, which is sooo pretty! Then I used plate BM-221 and stamped it with Black Konad Special Nail Polish, the tips are also that colour.

OMG, I'm such an idiot, I wrote this post on Wednesday and forgot to publish it, oops!

Nail Fail

Hey! I love when my titles rhyme :P I've had no time for blogger lately and it makes me so sad, I need to find more time for it! Anway, today I have for you a nail fail, I just hate how the blue isn't pastel like the other colours! In hindsight a lighter blue would have looked better but I wanted all the polishes I used to be Barry M Ice Cream polishes. The polishes are Barry M's Berry, Blueberry and Stawberry Ice Cream with a coat of Collection 2000 Sparkle Top Coat on top.

Stripes and Flowers

Hey! Just a quick post from me today as I have to rush out. All the colours are Barry M, apart from the green which is a fraken. So enjoy!

It's so annoying to take pictures in the sunlight when Seche is your topcoat, it's just too damn glossy!

Pink Wednesday Baby!

Hey everyone! So technically it's not Wednesday, it's like half hour past midnight, but I've just come back from the pub (or my second home as I like to call it). I've had such a great day, spent all day at the beach (I luuuuvre living near the beach) then went to the pub to celebrate a friends birthday, so I'm back home now slightly tipsy. I don't know about you, but I find when tipsy is the best time to do a blog post, haha.

Today I have leopard print nails, I was going to do polka dot nails, but I was kind of craving leopard print nails so it just had to be done! The base colour is Orly Pure Porcelain, the light pink is Barry M Bright Pink and the dark pink is Essie Super Bossa Nova.

I've had the Orle Pure Porcelain on for like 5 days now, so if you enlarge the picture you'll see the tip wear, gross! Also, before I added the dark pink my nails looked like some made cow, haha.

Mad cow.

Pretty Pure Porcelain

Hey! So today I have for you the rather gorgeous Orly Pure Porcelain, I love this polish and I bet it would look great on someone with a tan! There's a hint of pink to this polish but as I took these pictures in sunlight it kind of washes the pink out, what a bummer! Oh well, I still love this polish!
