Hi guys, hope your having a lovely day! Today I have my final Halloween nails design using the Halloween nail vinyls from She Sells Seashells
I did 2 coats of Barry M Chai as a base and then painted on these black stripes which are supposed to have a hypnotic kind of effect, if you get where I'm coming from. If you aren't confident with free handing the stripes you can use these straight nail vinyls. 
In the centre of the nail I added one of these cute little pumpkin vinyl stickers!

Hey guys, how's your week going ? It's Friday tomorrow and halloween! What are you plans? 
Thankyou for all your lovely comments on my recent posts, I just haven't had time to reply to them!
Tonight I have yet more halloween nails to share with you! For these nails I did 2 coats of Illamasqua Creator which reminded me off the night sky, once it was dry I used these witch hat nail vinyls from She Sells Seashells and OPI Funky Dunkey to paint over the vinyls.

Hey guys, how was your Monday? Mine was long but I have a late start tomorrow, yaay! 
Tonight I have another Halloween nail design to share with you using the vampire lips nail vinyls from She Sells Seashells. I painted all my nails with w7 Black and then applied the vinyls on the tips of the nails and used red acrylic paint to paint on the 'blood drips' on the accent nail before applying topcoat.

Hey everyone, how has your weekend been? Unfortunately my weekend has been pretty rubbish but tonight I have some spooky graveyard nails. 
These look a lot more challenging to do than they really are which is what I love most about nail vinyls. I have a tutorial at the bottom of this post so click read more to see how to do these, they're so easy thanks to the nail vinyls so anyone can do them :)
I used 2 Barry M Gelly polishes for the night sky gradient, the lighter shade is Blue Grape and the darker one is Blackberry. The black base colour I used was w7 Black. 
I hope you like it! Don't forget to see the whole post for the tutorial, enjoy! :)

Hi guys, more halloween nail art today! 
These nails were really simple and easy to do, all I did was paint on two coats of OPI Push and Shove and once that was dry I used the spiderweb nail vinyls from She Sells Seashells and painted over the top using Angelica black nail polish* and peeled off the vinyl and ta da! I love spiderweb design but very rarely do them because they're time consuming and fiddly but these vinyls make it so easy and quick!

Hey guys, happy Wednesday!
So I actually did these nails on my nubs but they never made it to the blog because I just didn't think they looked right! But I loved the design so recreated them on my longer nails! 
To do these nails I did a black and dark blue gradient on all the nails using Angelica nails in Black* (I can't remember the name, sorry) and Nails Inc Motcomb Street at the tips. I then added one coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust on all the nails to make the nails look like the night sky. For the feature nail I used a sponge and painted pink (Playboy Hot Violet*) in the middle and a circle of purple (OPI Funky Dunkey) around it, so kind of like a circular gradient, and sponged this onto the nail. and just to finish it off I added a silver lightning nail vinyl from She Sells Seashells which you can get here

Hello everybody, how was your weekend? I'm sorry I didn't blog this week but I've had a really busy week at uni which also included seeing my first patient! So I've spent the weekend trying to catch up on sleep and just generally relax a bit. 
Tonight though I have another Halloween nail art design to share with you, featuring some amazing bat nail vinyls from She Sell Seashells. I really wanted these bats to stand out and ended up deciding to do an orange circular gradient for a background. 
I have done this circular (or bullseye) gradient before but I haven't got round to posting them here yet. For the gradient I used Barry M Gelly in Mustard for the inner bit and then Illamasqua Insanity for the outer part of the gradient and just to darker it up a touch I also used a little bit of China Glaze Stoked To Be Soaked. 
I used these nail vinyls in 2 different ways to show you how easy they are to use and how to make these vinyls go a bit further. On the ring finger I used the vinyls as a stencil and then on the other fingers I used the little inner bits of the stencil as stickers and then added top coat. 
I must say I'm quite proud of how these turned out I really love them!

Hi guys, yes I'm still here! Tonight is a very quick post with these nails. 
I used a base coat of Nails Inc and then cut up some of the neon Kooky wraps I had. 
I made a very quick tutorial for this which I have yet to edit and I'll post soon.

Hey guys, is it Sunday night again? The weekend goes way too quick! 
I often get questions about the acrylic paint I use in my nail art and normally I just pick up them in random places so I haven't been able to recommend any brands or places to purchase until now. 
I did quite a bit of research online for some acrylic paints which weren't the regular red, blue, green, yellow, white and black etc. but also affordable and I'm happy to report I found the perfect paint! 
So the acrylic paint I found is by DecoArt and is sold by Art Discount for a very reasonable £1.30 for 59 ml and the colour range is huge, like seriously, there is every colour imaginable! You can find them here. All the paints I've tried so far have great opacity and formula so there's no need to thin them down. 
I received a lovely selection of these paints quite a while ago to share with you and I'm really sorry this took so long to make it to the blog but there are lots of posts coming up using these acrylic paints and also some tutorials as well. 
So let's get onto tonights nails. This design was inspired by the paint in the shade Lavender* and I also paired it with the shade Leaf Green*. 
I used a base colour of Barry M Gelly in Huckleberry. 
Click read more to see the rest of the pictures and of course the tutorial and it's a very simple one :)

Hey guys, I am glad we have finally reached the end of the week! I have a huge amount of work to get through this weekend so I'm not sure if I'll get a chance to blog again. 
Today I have some bee inspired nails. I used Butter London Pimms for my base colour, once it was dry I applied Illamasqua Swarm on my pointy and pinky and then I used the straight nail vinyls from She Sells Seashells and w7 black to paint on the stripes.

So today I have a swatch of a gorgeous Orly polish! I remember wanting this when I first saw it but never got round to getting it so I was really happy to find this in T K Maxx for £2.99! 
It's a gorgeous blue with duochrome shimmer/flakes in it! Such a gorgeous combination!
