Lounging in Leopard Print

Hi guys! I was feeling a little stuck for inspiration as to what to do with my nails today. So I decided to try out the ol’ faithful leopard print, but with a new twist!

I decided to try and replicate the pattern on my cardigan, sort of a grey and white patchy background with the black print on top. So I thought I’d give the tissue-blotting method a try! I started by painting a base coat of grey, a George nail varnish in colour 64, Witchcraft.

Once it was completely dry, I painted each nail one by one in white, immediately blotting most of it off with a scrunched up price of tissue paper before the white could dry. This alone left a pretty cool effect! Take a look!

Then, once this layer was dry, I stamped on my fave leopard print, using the Konad classics, image plate m57 and black special stamping polish.

Seal with a top coat of Seche Vite, (the single best top coat in the world), and voila! Printy Perfection!

What d’you think?

Barbie Pink and Swirly Stars!

Hey guys!
I need to get better at this blogging business! I’ve done my nails a bunch of times since my last post, but didn’t think any of them were blog-worthy. So for now I thought I’d just put up a photo or two of what today’s nails look like :)

Pink! So very pink! This is one from a multipack I got for Christmas, from the 17 collection at Boots stores. I’ve posted about another from this collection before, and mentioned I was annoyed that the polishes have no individual name labels on the bottles. Booo! Poor form. Anyways, I didn’t realise quite how pink it actually was, as the colour looks different in the bottle to how it wears. But I’ve decided I love how it looks on the nail! It is very shockingly-pink, and pretty enough to be worn on its own! But you know me, I can’t resist a cheeky little stamp!

And with the flash on it looks EVEN BRIGHTER!!

Pink pink pink! I feel especially girly today. I’m gonna have to wear this colour again, it’s making me all cheerful and smiley! :)
