Purple Rose Nail Art- Sunday, January 11, 2015
Purple rose free hand nail art
Woo! First post of 2015. I know I'm a bit late but better late than never :) I really want to get back into freehand nail art this year (but will still be continuing with stamping too of course), so I thought I'd ease myself back into it with some roses. I used Nails Inc black taxi as the base colour. This is my go to black polish because it's so shiny and perfect. I then used Oumaxi acrylic paints to paint on the flowers and petals using a selection of brushes. With roses I basically just splo...
Coral Rose Birthday Manicure- Sunday, May 26, 2013
 Nails Inc Wellington Square Coral Nail Art
Today I have my birthday manicure to show you :D I turned 27 on Saturday and I've had such a lovely weekend! It was sooo freezing the day before but the sun has been shining the past two days, very lucky!! I decided to do a coral coloured manicure to match my dress I was wearing for my birthday drinks. I used the beautiful Nails Inc Wellington Square. I used 3 thin coats for perfect coverage. This is a beautiful peachy colour! I then painted on orange roses. They look red in the photos but they ...
Barry M Nail Art Pen Review- Thursday, April 18, 2013
 Barry M Nail art pen rose nail art
I'm so sorry that I've not blogged in over a week! I've been so busy and away from home. I went to stay with my sister who is at University and to see Pink in concert.  She was seriously amazing!!  Whenever I'm away from home I end up not being able to make my nails as pretty as usual because I don't want to carry all my acrylic paint and other supplies around.  I'd seen reviews of these Barry M nail art pens and just knew I had to buy them! You can get them from Superdrug a...
Nails Inc Colville Mews Blossom Nail Art- Wednesday, March 27, 2013
 Nails Inc Colville Mews Blossom Nail Art
I hope you're all enjoying spring!! We still have lots of snow and are freezing here in England!! crazy times.  I thought I'd have a break from all the holographic loveliness, as much as I love it I don't want to bore all my readers :D This is the lovely Nails Inc Colville Mews, a light beige, nude polish.  I don't usually go for nude colours but I actually really love this polish! The formula is perfect and covers to an even, streak free, glossy finish in two coats.  I do love h...
Cute Owl Nail Art- Wednesday, March 13, 2013
 Cute Owl Nail Art
I've got a cute little manicure today, inspired by a card I'd seen which had some cute pink owls on the front.  I used two coats of Nails Inc Warick Avenue (which I also used for my swan manicure so you can find swatches there).  I then hand painted the owl, flowers and hearts with acrylic paints.  I added some microbeads onto the owl as she's supposed to have a little flower on her head :) I'm really enjoying hand painting things.  I need some better paint brushes though fo...
Pink Rose Nail Art- Thursday, March 7, 2013
 Pink Rose Nail Art
Have you ever tried a polish you just really hate? That's what happened to me last night.  I spent ages waiting for my PVA glue base to dry and then I thought I'd try Nails Inc Richmond.  I hoped I could build up the colour but nope, even with 3 coats it was sheer.  Really not my sort of thing at all.  Some people might like it but I like my opaque colours! I was so uninspired and I didn't have time to take it off and start again.  I added a coat of Nails Inc Electric La...
Swan Nail Art- Sunday, March 3, 2013
 Swan Nail Art
Last night I decided I wanted to attempt to paint a swan on my nails.  I used my mum's gorgeous painting as a reference. I first of all used 2 coats of Nails Inc Warick Avenue as a base.  This is a cute baby pink colour, you can see swatches below without topcoat.  I then used acrylic paints to paint the water and the swan.  As I did this late at night I only painted one swan but I think it'd be overload to do anymore anyway :) What do you think?
Nails Inc Hyde Park Gate Gradient- Friday, March 1, 2013
Nails Inc Hyde Park Gate Gradient - thumbnail 1
Today I have a beautiful, vibrant green polish to show you! This is Nails Inc Hyde Park Gate.  This is a limited edition polish that I bought a while back and I absolutely love it.  It covers perfectly in two coats and is super glossy without topcoat.  The last two photos show without topcoat.  I'm not usually a fan of wearing green myself, unless it's really light, so this is just perfect! It really stands out! I decided to do a simple gradient manicure with hyde park gate ...
Pastel Swirl Nail Art- Tuesday, February 19, 2013
Pastel Swirl Nail Art With Rimmel Matte Topcoat - thumbnail 7
I fancied a delicate, pastel manicure today.  For the base colour I used 2 coats of Nails Inc Oxford, which I've used before for my frosted snowflakes manicure.  I love nails inc pastel colours, they're so easy to apply. I then applied a lilac acrylic paint using a fan brush and handpainted some little swirls and a heart.  It's all finished off with 2 coats of Sally Hansen Insta Dri. I have actually used PVA glue as a base for this manicure.  I've heard it's easy to remove ...
Valentines Red Rose Nail Art- Sunday, February 10, 2013
Valentine Rose Nail Art - thumbnail 1
I was feeling very creative last night and braved using acrylic paints! These were inspired by the amazing Robin Moses! I used Nails Inc Black Taxi for the base and Nails Inc St James for the accent nail.  I'll definately be playing around with acrylic paints more in the future! 
Nails Inc Shoreditch Lane Leather Effects- Wednesday, February 6, 2013
Nails Inc Shoreditch Lane Leather Effect Polish - thumbnail 4
I think I've just found my favourite polish ever!! I'd seen swatches of the leather effects polish and originally I'd wanted the black, but then once I saw Shoreditch lane I knew I'd have to try that first! As far as I know it's only available as part of a set on QVC at the moment, but I found this on a nail sale page and quickly snapped it up! Before applying the polish I decided to reshape my nails.  Those who know me will know I've always had them rounded, because I absolutely HATE nail...

The Thames Dotty Striping Tape Manicure - thumbnail 7
Really sorry for the lack of activity!! I've been busy working on a web design project and I find it really hard to leave things.  Anyway I finally have a post and will be catching up with reading the posts from all the lovely blogs I follow too! This is just a simple little manicure using 2 coats of Nails Inc's The Thames as a base.  I absolutely love this colour, I've posted it before with spectraflair and also with other nail art.  The first picture is a swatch under arti...
