This is a mani from the vault I'm still cooking up my next mani for you guys lol, this mani was from when I  was on a real pink high a while ago and this was waiting in my untrieds 
This was 2 coats,  I think a 3rd may have been needed on some nails, but oh well  
Then I used my new Colour Club Covered In Diamonds (well it was new back then) and brushed some on to make it look like a gradient

It looked awesome in the shade ; )

and here's Rose Insolent on it's own (this picture is the most colour accurate)

I looove covered in diamonds soo bad : ) Do you?

Hello everyone, how you all doing? So my most popular post is my original swatch of this insanely bright neon pink  and recently I was feeling in a pink mood and decided to try it out again and hopefully get better photos for you ! 

I did two coats on a white base this time and it was much brighter, but as you all know neons are a pita to photograph ! 
As much as I love this really eye searingly bright pink the formula on this is terrible I didn't have the patience for another coat which is why it doesn't look so good, and this is one day of wear!

Then I decided to add a coat of Essence Carrie (another gorgeous essence topper !) 

I hope your retina's are still in tact after that blast of neon ! I have some nail art in mind which I'll hopefully get round to doing tonight so I can show you tomorrow  : )

Hi everyone, ok I have a small request for all you lovely readers today, I have been lemming Sally hansen Amber Ruby for the longest time and thought I'd be satisfied with the recent Ludurana I got, while it is a gorgeous polish I still need Amber Ruby, so if anyone has a spare bottle that they're willing to sell, swap or donate please leave a comment or drop me an email. 

Anyways this swatch is actually from a while go ! I don't really have much to say about this other than it being one of my biggest lemmings a while ago mainly because I love the look of the layered red and silver glitter which peeks out ! 

from far it also looks like it has tiny black glitters here too ; )

look at those red sparkles ! gorgeous : ) 

I've really been lacking nailspiration recently, if anyone has any requests or ideas please leave me a comment 
do you guys have this ? is it one of your favourites?

Hi guys, ok so this is kind of a nail fail ! 
I don't have a lot to say for this, I just sponged on red and white and got pink and then I used china glaze lol to get the little shapes, I used reinforcement stickers for the pinky and accent nail and then I got fed up and just painted it on freehand on the other fingers which is where it went wrong  ! Then I added topcoat which dulled the holo effect : ( 
Anyway I took it straight off after these pictures !  

Well, I'm just off to do my nails now so I should have something exciting for you tomorrow : )

I've decided to take advantage of the sunny weather were getting here, it probably won't last so we have to make the most of it !
So for this mani I did one coat of no7 Poolside Blue and the pinky, ring and thumb and then I layered 2 coats of Hits Apolo over the top, then on the other fingers I used 2 coats of Jesicca Disco Diva, I decided to test out the Retro Revival base coat and used it for the middle finger and I can say it definitely improves application and you can already start to see some tipwear on the pointy finger !
Finally I used poolside blue to stamp on a bow and then I stamped over it with Hits Apolo, it was meant to look like a shadow to get a 3d effect, but you can see it just looks like dodgy stamping loll ! 
I also used Gosh Holographic to stamp the dotty bow on the thumb but it wasn't very good ! 

I loved this mani soo much I loved the colours, Disco Diva is absolutely gorgeous I was blown away by how holo it was, seriously this definitely rivals Gosh Holographic, I haven't done a comparison yet but I will do for you !

I had tried the blue layering to get a ds glamour (huge lemming) dupe but it didn't work, if anybody knows a good layering combo for a ds dupe please let me know !

Hi guys, sorry it's been a few days since my last post ! Anywho we went to watch The Amazing Spiderman today and I just had to do these nails when I got home, now I did this mani (inspired by the awesome Sammy) very quickly because I was short on time and so it's not very good  : / 
 I painted one coat of an old red Maybelline and then I sponged on Pure Ice French Kiss and then I used Barry M Silver foil to draw on the rubbish webs and then I painted on the spider ! 

As a bonus I thought I'd show you my new coat which I looooovvvvveeeee !

Have you guys seen The Amazing spiderman? did you like it or this mani?
Anyways I'll talk to you guys soon so take care,  toodles  : )

Hi guys, how are you all? I'm so happy you all liked my previous post and I'm glad it brought a smile to your faces : ) 
Anyway on to todays nails, I decided to combine 2 of the most recent infectious nail trends : frames and gradients ! 

It didn't work out exactly how I wanted it to, I think the shift between colours isn't subtle enough but I didn't want to do loads of frames because this mani took about an hour to do and I only did these fingers ! lol !
Anyway I started with 2 coats of models own baby blue as a base coat and then I used no7 poolside blue and a tiny brush to paint on the first border, then I used an acrylic paint for the next border and then finally I used Barry M Pure turquoise for the final border and voila ! 

My Seche Vite has got really thick now and it made loads of tiny bubbles on my nails, which tbh weren't noticable irl. 

Do you guys like it? Anyways I'll talk to you all soon guys, toodles : )

Hey guys how are you all today? The weather here is pants so no holo : (  instead I thought I'd share my big bang theory nails with you, I tried to recreate the famous ball pit scene but it looked better in my head and tbh. I was being lazy and couldn't be bothered drawing Sheldon's head lol  ! 

Anyway yeah I just used the end of a tailors pin because my dotting tool  heads were too small for the balls and I just dotted on different balls in different colours and then I used black acrylic paint to write on bazinga ! 
Hope you like it, I can't remember all the different polishes I used but if anybody is desperately wanting to know I'll put them in : )

I hope this mani made you smile and I'll talk to you all soon : )

Oh gosh, I am on such a roll with my posting recently ! I feel so proud of myself loll ! 
Anyway I'm really feeling the framed nails trend recently and so for this mani I did 2 coats of Barry M silver foil (which stained my nails so badly : o !) and then I did one coat of Barry M 211 and then I used acrylic paint to add my frame and voila ! 

Taken with my dad's Sony nex3 (which I am soo stealing ; p )

I really loved this mani, which is surprising because I'm not able to wear silver really on my nails (unless it's holographic of course ; p ) lol 
I'm really glad I my frames look a lot better now than on my first attempt here 
Unfortunately when I took this off silver foil had really stained my nails orange ! I didn't use basecoat for this but I only intended to wear this mani for photos but I ended up keeping it on for 1 day ! The moral of the story - use basecoat !!! loll toodles  : )

I found this look on the cnd website, and was inspired to try it on my nubs, I'm not really sure what it's meant to be it reminds me of puffin birds, can you see it? no, just me then ! 

Anyway for this I used 2 coats of Illamasqua Insanity and then used acrylic paint to paint in the rest of the details 

I did like this, I didn't paint it very well but I haven't done any nail art in agess so I'm kinda rusty, loll, bear with me : )
