Sparkly skulls

Inspired by youtuber Professional DQ I bring you my "halloween" mani for this year.

I used ELF Black for the base, Collection Ice White (not white at all!!) for the skulls and Hedy's Cherry Bomb for the bows. After a clear top coat I added some rhinestones and some Hedys Manishma Beyond Opal holographiccfor detailing.
I hope you enjoy!

Pink Wednesdays for a good cause

I notice round the bloggersphere that Wednesdays are when everyone wears pink and since October is also Breast Cancer Awareness I can not think of a better way to wear pink

I used OPI Excuse Moi and Collection White Ice on the accent finger, then I attached rhinestone ribbons with Color Club topcoat

Cancer is a horrific disease that has affected my family, I lost my Grandsha 13 years ago to it. I've been a supporter of cancer charities for years and wearing this mani hopefully will get people talking as well as my new John Cena tshirt since WWE are giving all profits from the "Rise above Cancer" merchandise to a breast cancer charity.

To those who have experienced any form of cancer, themselves or a family member, I send massive hugs and love. The more money that can be raised towards funding research so less people have to go through this awful disease the better.

Essie Smooth Sailing

In my Cosmetics Fairy haul I got my first ever essie polish.

Its a teenie tiny bottle but it only cost 99p. The colour is gorgeous, more of a lavender colour than blue with a lovely subtle shimmer.

The formula is a bit difficult but with two coats I achieved good coverage.

What are your essie experiences?

Sally Hansen HD and another Cosmetics Fairy haul

Hey lovelies

Ahh its the weekend. I got a parcel from Cosmetics Fairy on Friday, all the lovely stuff for £20 (give or take a few pennies)

I got a few new polishes, 2 Sally Hansen HDs.

Here is (a slightly scuffed after a days wear) Hue. Its a beautiful yellow with a gold shimmer. Its an almost pearl finish. I did find it a little streaky even after 2 coats, and I dont think my top coat helped, think I need to try a different one.

Hope you all have an awesome weekend, mine is going to be spent reading (so much uni work!)

Sparkly Pink

Hey lovely readers,

University is really bogging me down right now so theres not a huge amount of free time for working on intricate nail art. That said I am still painting my nails, its a welcome break. For most of this week I've been sporting this sparkly pink look. Its ELF Fluro pink topped with Hedy's holographic pink (whose name escapes me now).

I'm hoping to have a few hours spare this weekend to get some real nail art because I miss it!

3 Nail Challenge Finals

My lovelies I have been terribly lax this past week or so, I appologise. It's been a busy time with organising myself ready for my last year of university.
Here's my manis for Edgy and Wavy
Edgy was inspired by a tutorial at Nailside
This is ELF Fluro pink, Collection 2000 Red and Barry M Blue Glitter
Wavy was going to be watermarble but after 3 failed attempts I just used a dotting tool to make waves
This is Ciate Bon Bon and Color Club Hot Like Lava
And that's the end of the challenge! I hope you've enjoyed following the challenge. I've really liked finding new inspiration from all these wonderful ladies.
