HOLOGRAPHIC BLUE & PURPLE GLITTER PLACEMENT GRADIENT

Happy Wednesday guys, how are you all? I've been working really hard this week since I've gone back to uni and honestly when I get home I'm so tired and honestly I've not even thought about blogging. 
I did receive some nail mail yesterday which I'd been very excited about but unfortunately one of the bottles in it broke which makes every nail addict sad :(

Anyway here is a lovely, very holographic and sparkly glequin gradient. I used a base of Gosh Misty Mauve and blue & purple holographic glequins and reversed the gradient on my accent nail in true Polish All The Nails style.
 I had to apply about 3 coats of topcoat to get it all smooth. 



  







I don't have time to think about nails right now, I'm really looking forward to the long weekend, hopefully I'll be able to paint with my nails and get some blog posts ready, see you until then :)

ILLAMASQUA RADIUM & POKE WITH CLAIRE'S BLACK MIX GLITTER

Hi guys, I'm really tired and I have to be up early tomorrow for uni so today I have some simple nails to show you. 
For these I've used Illamasqua Radium on all the fingers except the accent nail where I applied Illamasqua Poke and then to tie all the nails together I applied one coat of Claire's Black Mix Glitter and a simple, cool mani :)






I expected some awesome nail mail on Saturday which never showed up and it'll probably turn up tomorrow when I won't have time to swatch them all week. Anywho enjoy your week and I'll see you guys soon :)

DO YOU WANNA BUILD A SNOWMAN?

Happy Friday guys, have you got any nice plans for the weekend? I'll be spending my weekend studying and I'm expecting some very exciting nail mail which I hope to have swatched and posted this weekend for you guys :)
So Frozen. I went to go and watch it back in January and my friend is obsessed with the songs, seriously she sings them all day, even when we're being blown off Mount Snowdon! Haha, so with that song ringing in my ears I decided to do some Olaf nails, because how could I not? 
To begin with I applied two coats of  Kiko 340 and then used Color Club Chelsea Girl and Kiko 340 and a makeup sponge to do a gradient on all my nails, I applied one coat of Claire's Fluffy (which I reviewed here) and drew Olaf on my middle finger. 

'Hi I'm Olaf and I like warm hugs'

FLUORESCENT NEON GREEN & BLUE GRADIENT NAILS

Hey guys, any one out there craving summer? Well these nails are for you :) I suggest you go and grab your sunnies before continuing.                                    Got them? Ok good.
So I have been meaning to do a blue and green gradient for ages and decided to try it out a while ago and well why not use neon colours? So for these I used China Glaze I'm With The Lifeguard and Color Club Chelsea Girl (I think) and to top it all off I added a coat of Illamasqua Swarm because it's awesome!
This was so gorgeous in real life (if I may say so myself) and the colours looked amazing but this was an absolute pain in the derriƩre to photograph so I have had to fiddle with the colours in gimp which is why my fingers look a rather funny colour!








Look at the macro shot, don't you just LOVE it!!

GEOMETRIC NAILS

Hey guys, so today I have a really simple and easy to do nail art. I saw these nails on instagram but I can't remember who did them, I'll check my phone and update this post. 
I started these nails with 2 coats of Gosh High School Flirt, when this dried I used black acrylic paint and a striper brush to paint on random lines; where the lines overlapped I used Illamasqua Nomad, Jo'mina and Kiko 340 to colour in random shapes, and that's it!




I really liked these, simple and easy to do but they still look awesome.

BARRY M GELLY GRAPEFRUIT & HOLO GLEQUIN ACCENT

Hey guys, are you having a lovely Easter weekend? I've acquired lots of new nail polish in the past 2 days, I have loads of nail polishes my parents bought me from Spain and loads of new Barry M Gellys (check my instagram to see what I got). I have so much to play with but no time because I have so much revision to do :( 
Anyway I have a very simple mani for you today, very easy to do but I LOVE it ! I didn't want to take it off!
I applied 2 coats of Barry M Gelly in Grapefruit (which isn't as hot pink as my pictures show)  I then used silver holographic glequins to completely glequify the accent nail. 








Ah, love this so so much! It's really easy to do and I think it looks so cute :)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll see you in my next post, stay fabulous guys !

ILNP NOSTALGIA & 18K GOLD LEAF

Hi everybody, hi Dr Nick  how are you all on this lovely Thursday? My parents are coming back from Barcelona tomorrow and they have a big haul for me :) I'm so excited! 
So I remember seeing this gorgeous mani  a while ago and I knew I had to recreate it, so I did, well not exactly but I wanted to apply some gold leaf to a multichrome. I used 3 coats of Ilnp Nostalgia and because my gold leaf wasn't accessible at the time I used Rococo 18K Gold Leaf Top Coat on top. 








I love the look of the gold leaf on top, I think it just looks so beautiful. I'm going to have to do this every time I wear a multichrome now, haha! You should definitely try it out too, you'll love it :)
