Slime Nails Tutorial

Hi everyone,
Happy Halloween!
To I thought I'd show you how I created the nails I showed you earlier today for Halloween. I think these nails are a really simple way to get into the Halloween spirit and are really versatile - instead of green nail polish, you could use red to make it look like blood is dripping down your nails!
You can see the original post here.

Tribal Pop Art Tutorial

Hi everyone,
So today I'm going to show you a tutorial which was requested by Stef from Fairly Charming , Jasmine from The Happy Sloths and Ela from Pretty Little Nails. Stef also came up with a name for this design: "Tribal Pop Art". I love this name - I agree with Stef it definitely sums up this design.

These nails were a big goalpost for me, as this design was my first design to get the official Tumblr "nail art" tag. You can see the original post here.

Rose Nails Tutorial

Hi everyone,
For my first tutorial I am going to show you how to create Rose Nails. (Read the post here).
These nails were really easy to do and I didn't use any specific nail art tools, so these are a great design to try out if you do not own any nail art tools.

Polka Dots

Hi everyone,
 As you know I love purple nail polishes, so when I saw swatches of MUA Frozen Yoghurt on various blogs I knew I had to have it! Sadly they stopped selling MUA at my local Superdrug, so I wasn't able to buy it. I am currently trying not to buy any new polishes, so I thought it was a good thing they stopped selling it. But last week I walked into my local Superdrug and the MUA stand appeared again! I decided I couldn't wait any longer and bought the nail polish! 

As soon as I saw this nail polish I knew exactly what design I wanted to do, here is is:

I used MUA Frozen Yoghurt and Barry M Matt White.

Hi everyone,
So on the 5th November my blog will be 1 years old!

To celebrate this I have decided to do a full week of tutorials leading up to my blogaversary. 
It will start on the 29th October, and continue until the 5th November.

I have already planned 2/7 of the tutorials that I am going to post, however I would like YOU to choose the other 5 from all of the nail art I have done over the year. You can do this by leaving a comment below, and the most popular 5 will be made into tutorials and posted during that week.

I think the easiest way for you to view all of my posts is on tumblr:

I have also made a collage of all my posts and numbered them to make it easier for everyone to see:

Elegant Half Moons

Hi everyone,
So today I thought I'd try half moon nails. I've been wanting to try these for a while now and when my two new sinful colors polishes arrived (Island Coral and Amethyst) I immediately knew Amethyst would look great with gold.

I think that half moons, just like french manicures look really elegant. They are both such simple designs, but the outcomes are really amazing.

Here is my design:

I used Revlon Gold Coin and Sinful Colors Amethyst

Mini Toes!

Hi everyone,
Today I thought I'd show you a design I did on my cousins toes!

For her nails she wanted smiley faces.

I used Max Factor Mini Cool Jade, No7 Vivid Violet, Models Own Nail Art Pen in Yellow and Models Own Nail Art Pen in Pink.

This design was actually a lot easier to do than I thought and I really like the outcome.

Do you like this design?
Let me know what you think.

Metallic Spot Gradient

Hi everyone,
It's getting colder now here in England so I decided to use a metallic nail polish today as they remind of winter for some reason! I wanted to used my new Barry M Gelly polish in this design, and so decided to add spots to the metallic polish. Here's what I came up with:

I used No7 Damson Dream, Barry M Gelly Guava and Fing'rs Heart 2 Art Little White Lie

Rimmel Green With Envy

*This nail polish was purchased by me

Hi everyone,
So today I thought I'd show you a swatch of a colour I've been asked about a lot: Rimmel 60 seconds in Green with Envy.

I think the first time I bought this colour was because it matched a Sari I wanted to wear at a wedding! I actually really like this colour, as it is different to what I thought it would be.
