Pink Wednesday

I've got a Pink Wednesday for you today. I'm really getting back into the blogging swing of things, it's a shame summer's nearly over though! I'm back to school in 2 weeks, I'm excited though, looking forward to working in the spa and doing (and getting) full body massages (YES PLEASE), not excited about the early mornings though. :P

Anyway on to the nails, just a simple one for this pink Wednesday. I have Barry M Fuchsia as my base colour and BM20 stamped with Barry M Gold Foil. My nails are a bit to big for this stamp, so I just stamped it in the centre of each nail and left a bit of pink on each side, I think it makes my nails look slimmer, haha!

 Hi my name's Lydia and I'm addicted to Essie Mint Candy Apple. I've only had this polish for a few months and I've nearly got through half a bottle. Yes I have a problem. So of course I had to have mani with Mint Candy Apple, because it being on my toes is just not enough for me so I decided to go for this little striped and floral number. The lines could have been neater (luckily the flowers cover those up though :P) but I don't have the steadiest hands in the world... aahhh I hate doing freehand stripes so much!

Polishes I used:
Essie - Mint Candy Apple
Konad Special Nail Polish - White
Collection 2000 - Ninja (best name ever, flower leaves)
Barry M - Peach Melba (Flowers)
Essie - Braziliant (Flowers)

Summer Gradient

I'm baaaaaaaaaaack!

So I haven't posted in a disgustingly long time, I blame college and having to have short unpainted nails for it! Oh the joys of training to be a beauty therapist. When I go back in September though I'll be learning acrylic and gel nails and the likes so I'll be blogging about that, wooooh! So excited about that! 

Anyway on to the nails, over the summer all I've had on my nails is Essie Mint Candy Apple (OBSESSED) or another pastel colour, nothing really blog worthy in my opinion. These nails are pretty much the first time all summer (and it's nearly over) that I've done anything remotely creative on my nails, I almost can't deal with how non-pastel they are!

Polishes I used where:
Barry M - Bright Purple
Miss Sporty - unnamed pink polish
Accessorize - Orange Flash
Miss Sporty - unnamed yellow polish
