Merry Christmas Nails

Christmas nails number 6.  I wore these Christmas day and am still sporting these now!  I used Sally Hansen Pat on the Black and an LA Girl Gold.  I added some water decals from AliExpress and voila.

Christmas 'V' Chevron Nails

Christmas Nails number 5.  I used Nails Inc Berkeley Square here, it turned out a little darker that I wanted, nevermind. I then went in with a red striper and painted the red V at the cuticle and some random red checks on the grey with some added gold.  I apologise for the rubbish photography, but the lighting was really bad and I just couldn't get the right setting on my camera. :o(

Christmas Side Sweep Nails

OK, Christmas nails number 4.  This were inspired by Chelsea of the nail network.  I did not get the clean curves like Chelsea but this looks pretty impressive.  Thank you Chelsea.

Gradient Christmas Nails with Decals

Christmas nails number 3.  A simple pink and silver sponge gradient with some water decals from AliExpress. The silver used is PIA number 25 and Nails Inc Oxford Circus for the pink.

Christmas and a Snowman!

Christmas Nails number 2.  I just went over the last nails here with this red texture lacquer from LA Girl and for the ring finger I used the 3D lacquer from LA Girl.  Added a water decal and some gold crosses and voila.

Fragrance Direct Haul

A small haul in December for polishes that I had on my want list, some backup polish, and some, well just because lol.

Oh Christmas Tree..

OK, still on catch up!! These were my first December Christmas nails.  I used Sally Hansen Lavender Cloud for the base and for the ring finger I used China Glaze Jolly Holly.  Did some red and white stripes on the tips using acrylic paint and randomly painted some gold stripes using China Glaze Passion.

Polka Dots

A bright manicure to share.  Simple yet effective.  I have used LA Girl Freak (pink) and Dance Studio (blue).  Sometimes one just wants something simple and this was it I think!

Feather Nail Art

Mid year I got myself some feathers.  I had been looking to do this manicure for ages.  Finally in September I got round to it!  For the main manicure I used the beautiful Nothing but Truffle by Color Club, two coats here and doesn't it look stunning?  For the ring accent nail I used a feather to compliment NBT.  I loved having this on and wore it a whole week!

Sally Hansen Nails

Still on catch up from September this year!  Here I am wearing Sally Hansen - Thinking of Blue and on the ring finger Sally Hansen - Crinoline (with tob dots and and dotted over with crinoline).  I liked this a lot, if I do say so myself.
Then a few days later I changed the whole manicure with some random striping tape.

OPI Kangarooby

My Nails were a little shorter but healthier here.  This was an untried lacquer.  I have had this in my stash for quite a while so I thought I would dig it out!  This is two coats.  For a bit of sparkle some glitter on the ring accent nail.

Vinyl Chocolate Saran Manicure

The title says it all I guess?  Vinyl Record by LA Girl for the blue and Haute Chocolate by Sally Hansen on the ring finger.  I used SH HC with cling film (saran wrap) on top of the blue.  Not a bad effect.  I love this brown shade by SH.  I think it suits my skin tone really well.

Summer Feathers and a Gradient

A late summer manicure.  Lovely bright colours and a touch of a feather.  Apologies for the broken nail (see index finger).  But a lovely manicure to brighten me up.
Added feathers using black and white acrylic paint.
I did this gradient with a sponge and used China Glaze and LA Girl. Topped it all off with a coat of Seche Vite.

Plaid Isle of Wight Nails!

We went to the Isle of Wight this summer 2013 for a week.  This is what I had on my nails for the trip down. I liked them for about two days and then had to take them off as found them too busy! Nonetheless I did like doing this manicure and wearing it, for all of the two days.
I used China Glaze lacquer and black and white acrylic paint for this design.

A Bright Animal Print

Continuing with my catch up nails.  This was back in August!  I love this combination of colours and random animal print on this length of my nails.  Quick and easy.
 Nails Inc Lacquer.

Sally Hansen Saran Wrap

Saran Wrap manicure again.  I can't remember the name of the dark shade but it was Sally Hansen.  Saran wrap shade was Sally Hansen Ion.
I couldn't resist and topped it with a glitter coat of 151 by Golden Rose. SV to finish if off.
