Conquering something you thought you would fail at is always great. Ruffian manicures have always been oh so pretty, but looked oh so complicated for me. I took a chance and didn’t mess it up woo.

Not sure how I feel about the pixie dusts :/. I will give it another try though.

Having a bad experience with zoya and seche vite I went with another topcoat. The dents just started happening I had no control, so I had to quickly snap a picture on my phone. Good job I did as when I got home it was that dented it needed removing.

These are the polishes. The periwinkle blue is zoya Jo and the pizie dust is Nyx.

Thank you šŸ™‚

Holiday nails

Just a quick one tonight.

For my jolly holiday I decided to go with Sally Hansen nail strips.

Other than losing a bit on my thumb they lasted for 6 days with 2 coats of seche vite.

This only picture I took. Sorry for the quality.
Thank you

Polish days seven deadly sins: Lust

I joined polish days wooo. I’m pretty excited for this months theme, all thanks to my new water decals I ordered!

Pin up girl decals!!!! When I saw these decals they had to be mine, along with a few other pin-up designs on the site. I adore pin-up girls. If I ever had a large tattoo it would be Vivienne Westwoods naughty Alice pin-up. Anyway getting back on track. I’ve never used water decals before, this is my first attempt. I chose this little lady sitting pretty.

There was no plan for this manicure just excitement over using new purchases. Like my new maybelline with its lovely jelly with scattered holo glitter.

chevron french tip

The colour isn’t a wise choice for the decal, but it feels like a secret within my manicure (I swear I’m not crazy).

My nails are painted rather messy; sorry it was a rush job. The chevron french tip came about, because I had tip wear appearing. Bridal veil vamped it up, and dare I say made it a bit sexy?

I’m excited to see the other entry’s now.

Thank you.

Spotty dotty doticure

POLKA DOTS are the one! For the past few years they have been the ‘in’ thing at some point during the year. Not that I’m complaining, because frankly I would still wear them anyway. Dotting tools were on my to buy list, but my fiance surprised me with a set off Ebay.

Tada nothing special I know. Is it sad I was excited to use these? Probably oh well. Seen as they are purple I thought I would stick to the purple theme. It helped that I own a few purples even though most are darker shades.

Being a righty I found my left hard to dot. My hand was shaking like crazy, but it didn’t turn out terrible. I was kind of shocked how quick it was to do a doticure. This manicure is also the first time I have experienced any problems with seche vite; My dots were definitely dry, but seemed to drag when I applied the seche vite on top :/ some of the dots on my left hand are bit a bit off. Shocked they weren’t worse the way I shaking. I don’t think it was bad for a first attempt at a full doticure (yes I’m adopting the word).

Started off with ever faithful No7 2 in 1 base coat, 3 coats of Nail inc palace mews. For the dots I used Sally Hansens uptempo plum, a no named Front cover polish, No7’s speed dry in blackberry, and finally one of my favorite polish’s a-england’s lady of the lake.

I have my eye on a few beauties from a-england’s ‘the legends’ collection, maybe santa will bring me them. So I’m struggling to take pictures of my own hand. Silly I know especially as i got C in A-level photography for flips sake. I shake my head at myself, as you can imagine when I’ve got to take pictures off my left hand it just goes further down hill. Yesterday after I had taken the pictures and put the memory card in my laptop, it had a fit on me. The images just disappeared to say I was not happy was an understatement -_- but what could I do.
