Review and Nail Art: Loki’s Nail Vinyls

Painted Fingertips | Loki's chevron nail vinyls

Hi everyone!

By now you might have seen some nail art looks done using nail vinyls. They have become pretty popular for nail art over the past few months as a way to create patterns and do fun and easy nail art. When Loki’s Nail Vinyls asked me to review their product, I jumped at the chance. There are a few different nail vinyl brands out there already, but these are the first I have had the opportunity to try. (more…)

Textured Dotted Gradient

Hi everyone!

Today I have some simple but effective nail art to share with you. I’d been itching to do a dotticure, so I decided on a gradient dotticure. Of course, I needed to make it more interesting than that, so I decided to go with textured dots. I did something similar more than a year ago when I first got my hands on the Sally Hansen Sugar Coat polishes. Back then I combined two dot colours on each nail, this time I decided on just one dot colour per nail and here is the result: (more…)

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the Neverending Pile Challenge is: ‘What was I thinking, buying this?’

I have to admit I cheated a little on this one. I know exactly what I was thinking when I bought this! I was thinking that I liked the colours and that I should have at least one bar glitter topper. However, I know that many people aren’t a fan of bar glitter, so I thought it would be a good one to use for today’s theme. (more…)

Hi everyone!

My posting schedule is a bit off this week. After the long weekend we took for my boyfriend’s birthday I did my Monday post on Tuesday and only after posting it did I realise I was supposed to do my Tri-Polish Tuesday post.

I took part in this challenge a few times last year but I haven’t had a chance for it yet this year. The rules have changed a little and instead of using the exact same 3 polishes for each nail art design you only have to use the same 3 colours and you can switch polishes each week. (more…)
