The other day I was feeling super summery, and longing for some sunshine! I decided to break out some of my brightest nail varnishes, and this is what I came up with:-
It reminds me of an exotic sunset! Really makes me wanna go on holiday. Here’s how I did it: I started with a BRIGHT orange base, Models Own, Hed Kandi. Even with the flash off, it’s still so vibrant!
Then I sponged on some hot pink, which doesn’t have a name on the bottle but is a Kelly Brook polish that came with some nail caviar beads of the same colour.
It can be quite messy! But you can easily clean the edges up by dipping a cotton bud in some nail varnish remover. Or I strongly recommend getting your hands on some Leighton Denny, nail corrector fluid. Best Christmas present ever! It seems to just dissolve nail varnish on contact! Amazing. Then I added a black palm tree using my nail varnish pen and a couple of silhouettes of birds, and bam! Bright, summery, holiday nails!
Today’s post is for my Little Sister, Jessica! When she’s not too busy being the most awesome little sis in the world, she has been known to bake a few delicious cupcakes here and there.
So I thought I’d do an adorable cupcake manicure in her honour! For Jessie!
How did I create this sickly-sweet, totally cute work of art, you ask? I’ll show you!
Step 1:- First, apply a thin base coat. Then, using a strip of Sellotape, section off the end of your nails leaving a little more room than if you were doing French Tips.
Step 2:- Using Barry M – Bright Pink and Models Own – Lilac Dream, use a nail art brush to paint thin vertical stripes down the ends your nails.
You should be left with something like this…
Step 3:- Using my White nail art pen, I added some icing to the cupcakes.
Step 4:- I decided they still weren’t quite cute enough, so added some cartoon faces with my black nail art pen, and rosey pink cheeks as sprinkles! Topped off with a sprinkle on the top!
Finally, seal using a clear top coat to prolong the life of your manicure and VOILA! The world’s cutest cupcake nails (if I do say so myself) for the world’s best sister!
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!
Happy Valentine’s Day, everybody!
Today I’ve got just a little post to show you my super cute V-day nails!
Nothing too fancy! Just a simple off-white base coat using Sally Hansen, 410 Lavender Cloud, then layering a bunch of stamps (taken from various Bundle Monster plates) using Barry M, 279 Bright Pink and a red nail varnish from Boots’s 17 collection, which annoyingly has no name label on it!
I love clashing pinks and reds on Valentine’s day! And even though I smudged it a bit when putting on a top coat, I still think it looks totes adorable!
Have a nice day, lovebugs!
