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!

Cutest Cupcakes EVER!

Hey guys!
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.

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!
