Return of the 31 Day Challenge – Day 20

So after my hectic week of forgetting my camera and stressing about my life in general, its back to normal business!

WATER MARBLE!

I really like water marble and I’ve done quite a few in my nail art time, but they are by no means easy or clean!

This is not the cleanest of manicures I have ever done, but I love the colours and the messiness did wear off after the next day!

31 Day Challenge – Day 7

BLACK AND WHITE!

Recently I’ve been wearing a lot of black and white and I think a great way to wear the monochrome style is on your nails! This design was inspired by this pattern that I found on Pinterest 🙂

31 Day Challenge – Day 2

ORANGE!

I decided to do something slightly different for this manicure as orange isn’t my favourite colour to wear and it can be quite difficult to work with.

Pre Spring Challenge Day 14/Valentines

So today is ‘recreate your favourite challenge’ day! I thought it would be really cool to recreate day 4’s ‘flowers’ theme and incorporate Valentine’s day into it as well!

I started with a basic rose/floral pattern and gave it a Valentines twist with a cut out heart on the accent nails!

Splatter manicure!

Today’s mani is a messy one (in a good way)!

I’ve done a splatter manicure before, and I really liked the random effect it gives your nails, the hardest art was choosing the colours! With so many polishes now, I don’t know what to chose!

In the end I decided that I’d show you a couple of my new polishes and do something a bit different!

The first colour That I wanted to share with you is this gorgeous teal polish by City Colour creatively named ‘Dark Green’. This polish has a metallic blue/green finish and 2 coats applied brilliantly and gave an opaque finish. You all  know by now how much I LOVE my Rimmel Matte Finish Top Coat so I added a coat of that, and it looks gorgeous!

Strictly Come Dancing Fans, Listen Up!

If you love Strictly, I’ve got something special for you!

Over the new couple of weeks I will be posting 5 different designs based on some of the dresses from this year’s show!

My first design is based on the dress worn by Victoria Pendelton in her Quickstep in week 6 of the competition. This was one of my favourite dresses, it was simple, yet elegant and sophisticated.

Red Matte Leopard Print

Anybody who knows me, knows that I love leopard print!

Today’s manicure is my take on leopard print nails, that will go perfectly with the boots I am wearing tonight!

This Manicure was done using another one of my Calvin Klein polishes – Caught Red Handed and my Rimmel Matte Finish polish and Top coat.

Excuse the index finger nail, the red managed to stain my cuticle, which often happens with red polish so I cleaned up as best as i could, but after I’ve washed my hands once the staining will disappear (fingers crossed!)

My First Nail Post! Matte black,pink and silver with silver glitter

This is so exciting! My first ever nail related blog post! Ah!

Being a student I often find I have no money in the bank to purchase the most wanted nail polishes of the moment, so when Christmas came a long the only thing written on my list (yes, I still do a list to avoid those unwanted socks at Christmas) was NAIL POLISH!

This is not the first manicure I have done since Christmas, but it is the neatest and best photographed, so I thought I’d start with this one.

I am not one to spend vast amounts of money on nail varnish, however a good quality base coat and top coat is essential so I do splash out on those and you can read about the one I use here.

So here goes, my first ever manicure post!
