Dalmatian Gradient

Hi everyone!

Today I have some simple but very pretty nail art for you. A few months ago I was excited to see Essence release their dalmatian glitter – a black and white glitter topper. I love it and it went perfectly over a gradient! (more…)

The Neverending Pile Challenge: What was I thinking, buying this?

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…)

April Tri-Polish Challenge Part 1: Roses

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…)

Nail Art A Go-Go Challenge Day 4: Monochrome nails

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the challenge and today’s theme is monochrome nails. That means I can use different shades of any one colour… and of course, I picked purple 🙂 The first idea I had for this didn’t really work out, but luckily I had time for another try and came up with something pretty.tip-top-nail-chic-fairy-dust-sally-hansen-good-to-grape-and-purple-pulse-gradient-half-moon (more…)

Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge Day 2: Jewel Toned

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the Nail Art A-Go-Go challenge hosted by Gnarly Gnails and today’s theme is jewel-toned. I’m sure we’ll be seeing lots of emerald greens, ruby reds, and sapphire blues – I anticipate Essie’s Lots of Lux has been put to good use by someone – but I decided to take inspiration from some beautiful gemstones I actually saw recently to create this: nails-gradient-catrice-genius-in-a-bottle-sinful-colors-out-the-this-world-sally-hansen-lustre-shine-scarab-sinful-colors-opal-glitter (more…)
