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

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!
