Gradient nail art with extra bling!

Friday, 30 January 2015

Hello!  I've got something extremely blingy to brighten up your Friday!

Today, I've gone with a pink and blue gradient, and added polka dots using glitter, and then also gone a little bit over the top with some large rhinestone decorations.  These are really great for adding a bit of ridiculous to your manicure - I usually glue on with superglue and they'll stay in place for a good couple of days.  To remove - use the tin foil method to remove so that the superglue dissolves and doesn't damage your nails.

I started off with a gradient base, and added some polka dots.  I then added a few butterflies to my nails - really cute!  As usual, Born Pretty Store water decals really are the best around.  They are great quality, really easy to use, and stick to your nails really smoothly without leaving any ridges or edges - I can't recommend them enough!

Models Own Chrome Collection - Nail Art

Monday, 26 January 2015

Hello!  Remember last week I showed you the amazing new Chrome Collection from Models Own?  Well it's featuring in a spot of nail art today!  I decided to use the colours in a combination of gradients.  Now, usually I always start with a white base with gradients, but since these polishes are so opaque, I thought I'd start with a black base instead.

I then applied strips of striping tape onto my nails, (once the base of black was completely dry) and then sponged over the gradient.  After ripping the striping tape off, bit of clean up and top coat - tadaa!  As you can see, top coat doesn't ruin the lovely chrome effect.

So Susan Cosmetics - Lacqeurlove - The Box of New Beginnings

Friday, 23 January 2015

Hello!  I've got another fabulous Lacquerlove box from So Susan Cosmetics to show you today.  This is "The Box of New Beginnings".  Unfortunately, this will be the last subscription box from So Susan for nail polish, as the constraints the Royal Mail are putting on polish delivery are proving too unfavourable - however -n all is not lost - from next month they will be introducing a LipLove box containing a selection of lipsticks, so if lipstick is your thang - do go over and take a look (there's currently 50% off the first box too!)


In this months box, we are going out with a bang with four beautiful shades, Resolution (green), Hope (blue), Dream (nude shimmer) and Faith (orange shimmer).

Starting off with Resolution - this is a gorgeous pastel lime green, This applies beautifully and was opaque in two coats, drying to a gorgeous high shine - no topcoat required.  Lovely unusual colour which I think I'll be getting a lot of use out of.

Next up we have Hope.  This is identical in consistency and application as Resolution.  And what a lovely pretty shade this is!  Lovely, shiny blue.

Here we have Dream.  This is a nude shimmer that is ever so pretty.  I've used three coats here, but I think this would be absolutely gorgeous as a one-coater over a french manicure.

And *drumroll* - I've saved the best for last.  This is the utter beauty that is Faith.  Now, I'm not normally one for these kind of shades, but this is a stunner.  Full of gold flecks of shimmer, absolutely gorgeous.  This applied beautifully and was opaque in two coats.

If you are interested in getting your mitts on this box, please hope over to So Susan Cosmetics.  This months box is priced at £14.95.

I am sad that this is the last of the Lacquerlove boxes (for now!) as I've really enjoyed them, and the polishes have always been beautiful colours and exceptional quality.  Hopefully they will find a way in the future to make this work.  In the meantime, you can buy polishes individually from their website for £6.95 each.
