Hey guys! I’ve got lots going on at the moment, so I just have two teaser photos for you today. I’m hoping to get to these over the next week in detail 😀
My first MUA haul (and more should be coming in the post!)
And my first Paris Sparkles polishes!
Something to look forward to?!
Mini-post for everyone today. I’ve been meaning to try these nails for a very long time, but I’m so completely un-co at drawing that I knew I’d stuff up just those tiny bow-ties.
However, I love you and I was bored so I bit the bullet and this happened a few days ago:
These were done with Kleancolor White as base, Jordana Black Mark (liner) for the jacket, then black acrylic paint for the buttons and bow-ties, with China Glaze Ruby Pumps for the red bow. Cute, ne?
I only got one good photo because the Husband has been taking the camera to work with him *shakes fist*
But see what I mean about the bows?! *shakes head* soooo nooby. I can’t draw 😦 I should stick to water-marbling and glittery goodness, yes?
Anyway, hope you enjoy!
Today I’m baring my naked nails for you! Ami over at EverySensory did a post baring hers and tagged anybody who read it, so here goes!
I’m not the best blogger lately, hmm. Ah well. Today I’m showing you my first experimenting with fimo sticks, and loose glitter (rather than glitter polish). This design is one of Violet’s, her tutorial is here on YouTube if you want to know how to do it. I did it pretty much the same. No point taking chances on a first try! 😉 I only did one dip of the glitter though because my glitter was more opaque than hers.
It doesn’t look quite as nice on my short nails, but work has been so hard on them lately that I haven’t been able to grow them. Cry!
I thought I’d do something cute and summery because we’re in the depths of winter and it’s soooo cooooold here! Anyway, take a look~
Right! So last week I did a recent shopping haul post that started out with eight Mode polishes that I was hoping to swatch for you… And swatch I have! Hurrah! So here’s eight more Modes for you… You’ve already seen three of them because MaSucree swatched them here for you, but I didn’t feel right not swatching the whole lot. So I did the whole lot.
Quick post (and I mean QUICK!) just to show you what I’ve got on my nails at the moment 😀
I got the idea for this one from cutepolish on YouTube (one of my fave nail art channels), it’s this video here if you’re interested. I’m not too big a fan of pinks so I opted for one of my new blue Modes as my base colour. It’s ‘Runway’, a gorgeous creme that I absolutely adore, with Revlon’s Gold Coin sponged over top. Anyway, modified Effie Trinket nails!
I keep flicking my nails around to look at the pretty… and to imitate the way Effie flourishes her hands during the Reaping >_<
Instead of using a makeup sponge like in the video, I used an eyeshadow sponge applicator. I bought a cheap pack of them specifically for nail art, because I’m cool that way 😉
Hopefully I’ll catch up with everyone tomorrow!
