I apologize for the lack of posts as well, I’ve been having a hard time with some personal issues lately not to mention uni coursework, but I’m going to try and blog my way through it from now on.

HALF MOONS!

Half-moons are one of the most classic and classy manicures around. You see so many celebrities wearing this look from Lauren Conrad to Dita Von Teese!

What I love about the half moon mani is that you can chose any colours you want, its such a versatile look!

RAINBOW!

So as I’ve already done a rainbow manicure for the Pre Spring Challenge here, I decided that I’d try something a bit different with this rainbow mani and at the same time show you one of my new purchases!

31 Day Challenge – Day 8

METALLIC!

I have so many metallic polishes it was hard to chose which one to use for this mani, but in the end I decided to use my Loreal Paris Varnish in ‘Valiant’ for a bit of a twist!

I was going to do a boring old metallic nail with black pattern on top but instead I decided on a grungy acid wash design!

31 Day Challenge – Day 3

Okay everyone before I start I’d like to apologise for my absence this weekend, its been a bit hectic and along with university deadlines I’ve been a bit under pressure!

Now for the manicure..

YELLOW!

Today’s theme is yellow, and I love yellow, its so bright and reminds me of the sun. Perfect!

So I couldn’t think of things to do then I settled for a fishtail manicure, because I haven’t posted one yet 🙂

Foil!

Had this idea for a long time, but was never sure if it would work, so I thought I’d give it a try and it’s turned out really great!

(This is real foil! no fancy nail foil or anything, just plain old tin foil!)

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!
