Silver spatters

Silver spatters

Trying for something a bit classy, I produced this pale pink and silver manicure. I think I succeeded! The pink base on the spatter nails is Nails Inc Fitzrovia, the dark metallic grey is China Glaze Jitterbug and the lighter silver is Barry M Silver Foil. The pink glitter is another of the Barry M … Continue reading

Grading between the lines

Grading between the lines

Just a quickie: I’d been wanting to try a striped gradient for a while so of COURSE I went for teal as it is far and away the colour of which I have most variants in my Helmer. I was happy with these, although as ever the close-up is unforgiving. From a normal distance away … Continue reading

Neontastic

Neontastic

Sometimes you just gotta paint your nails the brightest colours you can find in your Helmer. That’s what I did in this manicure, a super-luminous neon gradient that I couldn’t stop showing off to everybody I saw. The purple is China Glaze Flying Dragon, the pink is China Glaze Pool Party, and the orange is … Continue reading

Fuzzy jumpers with an eighties feel

Fuzzy jumpers with an eighties feel

I’d had my eye on the Nails Inc feather polishes since their press release early in the year but wasn’t sure enough I’d like them to decide to buy myself a bottle. Luckily for me, Barry M came out with their own version recently so I snapped up a bottle of their ‘confetti’ polish in … Continue reading

Speckled eggs

Speckled eggs

For this manicure I broke out the L’Oreal Color Riche Confetti topcoat again – my lovely black and white glitter. I still think it looks ace. I’ve been reading good things about the Maybelline black and white glitter as well – it’s cheaper than the L’Oreal and comes in a bigger bottle – and it … Continue reading

Diamond party

Diamond party

So, it was my grandparents’ sixtieth wedding anniversary a couple of weeks ago: their DIAMOND WEDDING! That calls for a serious celebration and some celebratory nails to match. I achieved this look using some of the hexagonal glequins I bought from Born Pretty Store a while ago (as detailed in this post). Obviously, I dug … Continue reading

Barbie marble

Barbie marble

I’m a reasonably girly person (I always wear skirts and dresses and I like a lot of floral prints) but these nails take it to the next level! The base is OPI Nicki Minaj Pink Friday and the marble is a combination of China Glaze Pool Party and China Glaze Jitterbug. Pool Party is a … Continue reading

More glitter!

More glitter!

I know I said that I was done with glitter for a little while but… I lied!!! I just can’t get enough! The glitter on this one is brand new so that’s my excuse. I popped into Sally Beauty in Angel just to see if they had any offers running and they had this year’s … Continue reading

Frosty gradients

Frosty gradients

This is another quick, glittery manicure (at Christmas and New Year I basically want everything to be glittery) using Revlon Whimsical, which I picked up in America over the summer (I bought so many polishes in the States!). I’m not sure how much it shows up on this picture but I layered Whimsical (which comes … Continue reading

Pansies

Pansies

Pansies: I used a matte topcoat (from Rimmel) to make them look more soft and vintage-y. The base colour is China Glaze Kinetic Candy and design inspiration comes from this tutorial by BlogNailedIt: she was more restrained and only put one pansy on each nail but of course I had to have them ALL OVER. … Continue reading
