Disco nail art

Happy Easter everyone!. I have had a busy weekend, went shopping and I never came home with a single nail polish, woohoo that's good for me, didn't stop me looking at them though lol. I had a nice lunch at Frankie's and Benny's. What you guys been up to this Bank holiday weekend?

I was sorting threw my nail glitters in those little pots and I noticed I have way too many, so I put them to some use and did disco ball nails. Oh and don't forget to follow u son bloglovin too.

starry nails

I still have short nails, they keep chipping even when so short :( just wish they would grow. So I wanted to paint them a colour that I personally think goes OK on short nails. Reds and dark colours look terrible on me. So here we have it white polish by La colors, with confetti and silver stars.The camera flash made the stars black but I like it any how.

Happy Easter! What you guys up to this long holiday weekend? I am shopping tomorrow and will be sooo hard not to buy any nail polishes, I bet I come back with one lol.

Teal and purple

Not sure what to call this design. I had these gold ting balls for around a year and never done much with them till today. I like this design a lot but annoyed I could not get many photos of it so I did a few anyway. Nail polishes used were Sally Hansen Fairy Teal, Technic Carnival and La Colors Jewel Tone.

Can anyone think of a name for this design?

Nail polish crazy!

I have taken photographs of my nail polishes. Every month I will take one and post it. :) I have a few too many lol. I think around 300 now. My favorite are my La colors, you get so many wide range of colours. The new ones out are improved from their previous ones, dry quicker, apply nicer and bottle lid is better.

gold and black nail art

I am sitting here freezing since it is so damn cold in the UK right now. I live near Heathrow and it's like -1. :(
Almost April and we had snow recently. More of a reason to sit indoors painting nails while waiting to go to work I guess. Today I have to show my Gold, glitter and black nails. I had to include some gold studs to fit the gold theme.

My sisters puppy agrees he likes them lol. Dogs sleep in most random places. Oh and on my keyboard your see I split glitter nail polish all over it. ha ha whoops.

Glitter sprinkle nails

I used false nails again since I am waiting for my ones to grow a bit longer, since they keep catching and breaking. I used a dark pink then made a glitter mix for over the top. I used some flake glitters I purchased from the pound shop and Rimmel London glitter polish mixed in with a clear topcoat.

I think it looks pretty, I might even make this in a polish bottle. Oh and I recently bought a new top coat by Wet and Wild Xplode, it dries super fast, I would say quicker than seche vite. I am trying to find one that does not smudge my nail art and I know seche vite does not but its pricey and shrinks my nail art. :(

Whats your favorite topcoat?

Boots 17 - Holo

My friend was buying some foundation and lip gloss on the 3 for 2 offer so she got me this for free. I was going on about this for ages, so she manage to find it since I had no luck. Looks so much nicer in person. To see the effect it worked better under sun light or an indoor light, LED light did not show it at all.

Anyone own any Holographic Nail polishes? What do you think of them?

W7 - Sheer Mauve

I really like the w7 nails polishes, they remind me of the OPI ones but way cheaper. I think they dry really quick and have loads of colours to choose from. I saw 20 neon ones for 20 pounds in TkMax, was very tempted to buy them but couldn't waste money at the time. Lilac being my favorite colour I don't seem to down many nail polishes of purples. I had to of course add my new L'Oreal confetti over the top.

Chit chat - Arial

I purchased this from the pound shop yesterday, I fell in love with colour. I did say I was not to buy any more nail polishes but can't help it and nails are so in at the moment so hard not to.

It has blue and tint of green I noticed while I was taking pictures under my LED light. I manged one decent photograph.

Fearne Burnt Out

I am not usually a fan of orange nail polishes but I like this one, is from a set by Fearne Cotton. I like the two tone effect it has. Not sure if the pictures show the gold tone but still looks pretty.

inspired my client

Well I bought that new Lorel confetti nail polish and a client of mine wanted it on her nails, but with a pale blue. I applied the Acrylics and so on. She loved them just hope they last her as she had really short nails.

Loreal confetti

I saw this in Tesco supermarket yesterday and saw this nail polish and was like hmm that's nice but I walked away thinking I might not like it anyway, so then I look online for swatches and was like OMG! I have to go back tomorrow on pay day and buy it. I was super excited like a child on Christmas lol. I love it, even the woman serving me was like Ooh isn't that a lovely nail polish.

I used:
La colors - Pink Bubbles
Loreal Paris - Confettis

Olive green

I am not sure I like this, the polish looks lumpy but it's actually really smooth, very strange. Looks beautiful in the bottle but I didn't like it on me. I am really unhappy with my nails at the moment, they keep breaking even when they are short as it is. I push back my cuticles and take good care but no luck. :( Think my job ruins them. What do you nail bloggers do to keep your nails nice and long?

Nail polish is by Fearne cotton - Sadly grey.

Acrylic and nail art

I booked time off work this week to get some clients in, I really need to advertise and get the word out. I have a few clients who are wanting Acrylics this Friday, depending if any cancellations. So I thought I'd get my kit out and practice.

The nail art reminds me of a patch work blanket. I love patch work blankets, reminds me of being a kid again.

colour glitter mood

These are two of my favorite glitter nail polishes. They both have different colour glitters bits in them. One is by Technic called carnival and the other is Posh polish Beauty uk called Interogalactic.

Still trying to master taking photographs of glitters, who do you people do it?

Monochrome nail art

An advert was on advertising black and white stripe tops, because apparently Monochrome is in this year? My mum was like "o Ooh I like that, black and white is all in this year." So I googled Monochrome and decided to do some nails art. I had to do it on false ones as I would have no patience doing it on my natural ones.

Nail art wheel

I love doing nail art wheels and not often I see many people doing them, I went off doing them for a while till my poor nails got so brittle, I then decided to do them again. I spent a week on and off doing it since I get distracted so easily and I run out of ideas. :D

                                                           and here is some close ups.

Glitter nails by models own

This is a funny nail polish. You have to use a flash on a camera to be able to see it, where as other glitter polishes flash on a camera is the last thing you want to use. I used one without a camera flash, using just light source in my light box and one with a camera flash. You can see a difference. Best to view full sized images. I had to use false nails since my nails broke even when they were short :( regreting acrylics badly. 

                                 with camera flash.

Polished I used is:

Models own - Thunder and Lightning.

Watercolour nails

I was watching a tutorial on how to do watercolour nails from getnailed's water spot tutorial. I have used a white colour for my base then three colours which I will name after the picture. Basically you put small blobs of polish on, then put a flat brush into nail polish remover then tap over the polish till it spreads out into the other colours. It's fun!

Polishes used
Sally Hansen - white on
La colors - Fun in the sun
La colors - Pink Bubbles
Barry M - Turquoise

Glitters for Acrylic

Clients I have done Acrylic nails on adore glitter. So I bought some empty pots, then mixed my clear Acrylic powder with glitter I bought from craft shops or eBay. Today I decided to do some swatches of them on  false nails for clients to see. I even named them as well. Whats your favorites? I love Blue sea and posh purple.
