Spiders

*I’m such a bad blogger I have a small stash of posts yet I haven’t posted anything in 11 days.

I don’t particularly like the critters with those thin creepy legs, but I do appreciate spider webs as long as they aren’t touching me!

I did something a bit silly. I used a thermal over the top of the stencil, so you can’t see a difference in colour unless you stare it out big time with your nail nearly in your eyeball.

I also asked my fiance if a thermal would work over a normal polish, and he was like why wouldn’t it? Felt a bit stupid but hey.

Thank you

down feather duvet

I’m slowly catching up on blog post. This manicure was from around the 16th of July and I only remember that because I was trying to make my nails look cool for the kiddies where I volunteer. One little asks me every week what I’ve got on. A las they did not turn out well.

essence splash stampingStamping hasn’t really been on my radar for a while. 1) I don’t have time for it. 2) Testing out shop products is more important. Which is why I got really annoyed with all this smudging. Never have I had this problem before, and it wasn’t the stamping either so frankly I don’t know!

The base for this was essence splash which nail loopy sent me. She is totally attuned to my favourite polish colours.

Weird title for a blog post I know but plain old feathers is pants. Plus I love my bed therefor I love my duvet….maybe a little too much.

Thank you.

Change

Yes I’ve gone for a huge nail change! Are you ready?!

a england her rose adagioBOOOOOOOM

Have I blown your minds? no I didn’t think so hahah.

her rose adagioWhilst doing my dissertation I had some scheduled shopping: a england’s 3 year anniversary sale and moyou’s new collection were my stops.

I got plate 6 from the new hipster collection, and I adore the images. I did stamp one of the triangle designs on a few nails, but turns out I make straight lines wobbly with squishy stampers…..

moyou hipsterThis pinky rose toned beauty is her rose adagio, and I am loving the ballerina collection. When I first looked up the swatches I was on the fence, but I adore the polish.

Thank you.

Holosphere

Hello there loveys,

I’m a bit behind with my blogging. I usually blog as I do my nails, but studying has got in the way. Luckily my dissertation has been handed in and I only have 3 assignments left, but sadly no motivation.

zeus shimmerYes you are seeing sinful colors Zeus. My very first lemming I may add. Its stunning with all that shimmer….and mine ALLLL mine. Thank you PM for making my dreams come true.

I decided to pair it with tarastalons holosphere from the fan collaboration collection. The formula was an issue for me, but I’ve added a bit of thinner in since. Frankly it’s a beautiful gentle holographic infused duochrome, and I love the colour! In my adventures to get better at stamping I used my new MM bird plate, and a england lady of the lake to stamp it with.

sinful colors zeusNow on another note I’m exhausted mentally lately, so I might ramble on because lets face it this is my slice of the net. I need a holiday!

Thank you.

What a beaut

One of my birthday presents was from Hannah, and boy did she smash a lemming. When Mr Postman delivered it I actually had no clue what it was seen as Illamasqua send them in plain black boxes. I also got MM17 from Saira! So that obviously had to be used asap as well. The dragon fly image is beautiful.

Now this manicure needed the light box to show its beauty, but I haven’t got the time or had it lately to set it all up. So I apologise that colour your seeing isn’t it’s true colour.

Illasmaqua & nopiOn my accent nail I have NOPI sing you like a bee not that you can see it much due to my dodgy stamping .

illamasqua facetOne of the girls on my course I’ve recently started talking to has actually started to notice my nails, and she really liked this manicure and my nail shape. She was examining them to see if they were my real nails haha.

illamasqua and messy mansion stampingNow I have to say this shade should be in everyones stash, because it’s such a beauty!!!

Thank you Hannah and Saira!

Thank you for reading 🙂
