Gradient flower nail art

Sunday, 29 June 2014

After a week of lovely swatches I thought it would be nice tp mix it up with some nail art.  So, here you go, bit of a gradient jazzed up with some flowers and polka dots.

I also added some really small bits or glitter here and there for some extra sparkle.

Nayll Custom Nail Polishes

Tuesday, 24 June 2014

Hello!  I am SUPER excited to show you my post today and tell you all about it.  Today I've got a lovely polish to show you from Nayll, well I've actually got a few to show you over the next couple of weeks.  So, what's the excitement all about?  Oh yes, I got to design these polishes myself!  WHATTTTTTTTT?!  And yes, you can do exactly the same too, how flipping cool is that?

So, Nayll, allow you to custom design your polish, you can choose a base colour, and up to ten glitters, from a massive glitter selection, or you can create a shimmer polish by mixing up a few shades of shimmery polish.  It's such a brilliant idea, especially for those of you that have a specific mix in your mind but not the time/inclination to try and make the combo yourself.  And even cooler - you can name your polish, and it's printed onto your bottle.  I chose the fairly uninspired "nuthin but a nail thing" as the name of my polish, because wahey! You could get these as presents for your friends and have their names printed on - which is a lovely personal touch.

So, I chose a pale blue base with a host of blue, pink and purple glitters.  LOOK HOW PRETTY.

And on my nails it didn't disappoint.  It applied beautifully and I was also provided a glitter smoothing top coat which I've only had to apply one coat of and my nails feel fabulously smooth.  Lovely.

I really love this polish, and I just love the whole idea of being able to create your own personal polish.  I can't wait to try out the others I've got and show you all!

So - fancy giving this a go?  Nayll is a US based company but are also willing to ship to the UK (Shipping was super quick too, I had my polishes within 7 days - excellent).  Polishes are really reasonably priced too starting from $8 for a cream base and 0.30c for each glitter you add.  I added 5 into this combination.

Also - if you just fancy checking out their pre-mixed polishes - there's a lovely range there too.

Dark Metal Lacquer - Sound Asleep

Hello!  I've got a lovely sparkley for you today from Dark Metal Lacquer - this is Sound Asleep.

Oh my flipping goodness!  Check out the sparkle party I've got going on here!!  This is a predominantly lilac glitter in a claer base but also jam packed full of holographic glitter, so it's got a really special sparkle when your nails hit the light.  I didn't use a base with this polish and applied four coats for opaqueness, but you could probably layer less over a base colour.  This applied beautifully and dried really quickly too.  Super pretty.
