Silver sparkly leopard print

Tuesday, 31 December 2013

Hello!  I've not done a new years eve themed manicure this year, but I do have some serious sparkle to show you... featuring one of my favourite patterns.

I usually end up doing leopard print over a gradient, but I decided to mix it up a bit and do it over a really sparkly silver base (I've used 2True Christy which is one of the textured glitters, but it easily smoothed over with a couple of layers of top coat).

I really love how this turned out, I can definitely see some other glitter bases featuring in the future.

One last final thing... wishing everyone all the joy and best wishes for the new year, and thank you all for reading my blog this year.  Much love, Claire. xxxx

This is a beautiful black chock full of silver flecks, and it's seriously shiny.  This is two coats without top coat and you can nearly see my reflection in my nails in some of the pictures! Haha!  This is a gorgeous polish, and would make a great base for a galaxy manicure.

Red lacey nails

Sunday, 29 December 2013

Hello!  Today I've got some nail art for you today... using some water decals I found in the bottom of one of my drawers that I'd completely forgotten about (it's always a nice surprise when that happens isn't it?)

I started off with a red and orange gradient, and then added the decals at the base of my nails, bar my ring finger where I used it as a tip and then added a little bow charm.

Shimmer Polish grew out of Cindy's home in Orange County.  Cindy's polishes are named after her wonderful friends and family. Each and every name has an important significance to her. Each shade of Shimmer is inspired by Cindy's friends; from favorite colors, things that remind her of that person, and even personal requests from these great ladies. Each and every one of the Shimmers have shaped and influenced her to become who she is today; this her way of thanking them for being in her life.

Fancy yourself some SHIMMER polish?

This is a gorgeous rich shade, and applies beautifully and dries with a really high shine.  This is two coats of Runway Diva.  If you haven't tried out Misa polishes before, I really recommend seeking them out, they do some really beautiful colours.  This one isn't my usual shade of bright, but it's certainly a sophisticated shade, perfect for when you need to be sensible.
