I have another water marble for you today. I decided to try doing a water marble with holographic polishes! I’ve seen this done a few times before with the result being swirls of holo goodness… unfortunately mine only half worked. As a water marble it’s fine but sadly you can’t see much holo-ness. (more…)
Today’s nails were originally intended for last month’s tri-polish challenge, but then I got a bit sick and didn’t get a chance to do the other manis for it, so I just saved them up for a normal post 🙂
In case you’re wondering why I would do an autumny mani when here in South Africa it’s summer, well, I didn’t plan it that way! I just picked out some colours I thought would go well together and only once I was finished did I realise they were a pretty autumny combination 🙂 So for those of you in the Northern hemisphere – enjoy this as an end-of-autumn water marble!(more…)
Today’s nails are based on one of the first stamping manicures I ever did a few months ago. I took pictures of it but I didn’t clean up around my nails, and the photos were pretty awful so for ages I’ve been meaning to recreate the nails and I finally got around to it. They’re simple but I love them!(more…)
Another Monday, another tape mani. This is a bit different to previous tape manis I’ve posted because it used neither striping tape nor cellotape! I used hole reinforcers to create half moon nails. It’s still a form of tape!
It’s the final set of Tribal Texture swatches! All these polishes are available from the Born Pretty Store and were bought by me.
As I mentioned in the previous posts, part one and part two, I had some formula issues with some of these polishes. Well, the issues were the WORST with the ones I’m showing today. However, because they were textured polishes, I found I could handle it without getting too frustrated. They were really thick – the worst was number 12. There was a little polish around the lid, so I suspect it wasn’t sealed quite properly during transit and it was completely unusable. The good news is, after just a few drops of thinner, everything was fine and it applied well. So don’t let the formula put you off if you like the colours – nothing a little thinner can’t solve!
I’ll start off with number 10 – a brown texture. (more…)
Today I have some fun nails for you that I have dubbed my Milky Way nails. I did nail art that was similar to this a few times when I first started getting into nail art, and it was a big hit with Mr Boyfriend – he was actually the one who mentioned it looked like the Milky Way! I’ve made a few changes to those original ones but I figured it was finally time for my Milky Way nails to get onto my blog 🙂(more…)
