THE BODY SHOP PENGUINS

Hey guy, another post? Yep! So a long long time ago The Body Shop sent me 3 nail polishes and a dotting tool and asked for this penguin design. 
I'm really sorry it's so late but better late than never? This is so easy to do, the only tool I used was the dotting tool. I'm pretty sure I did a tutorial, where that is though I'm really not sure?! oops
So I can't remember the name of the colours, I'll check when I go back home! 

Anyway, paint on a black base, use the white(ish) colour to dot the eyes near the cuticle and then outline and fill in the white tummy of the penguin. Once it's dry use the orange to paint on the feet and nose. With the black dot on the eyes and finally use the white colour again to do the final dot of the eyes. 
It's really easy and looks so cute! So give it a try!
You can get all the colours here and the dotting tool here. They make really good stocking fillers!

IT'S SNOWING WITH BARRY M!

Hey guys! So once again I'm here, after a ridiculous amount of time, I'm not even going to begin explaining (we'll be here all day!) 
I've really missed blogging and doing my nails, I enjoy it so much and it was such a huge part of my life before, I feel sad that it's not anymore.  
Anyway tonight I have some winter nails that I did ages ago (like over a year ago) I did a gradient with Barry M gelly polishes in Blue Grape and Blackberry and then painted on the little Christmas trees with black acrylic paint. Over that I used El Corazon Confetti polish in 531a, which is the PERFECT snow nail polish! 





So in other news, after nearly 5/6 years? I have changed to oval shape nails! I just wanted a change and am liking it so far! I had to share this with people who wouldn't look at me like I had 2 heads, lol! 
I know I don't post here so if anyone is interested head over to my instagram where I occasionally post!

HENNA NAIL ART

Hey guys, thankyou for the lovely comments on my last post, I really appreciate them. They're really motivate and encourage me to post more.  
So today I bring you these henna inspired nails. Can you believe I've forgotten the name of this polish? I never forget polish names! Ok, so I've just checked and this is Penny For Your Thoughts by Colors by Llarowe. This colour just makes me think of henna, I'm not actually a fan of henna on me personally but the patterns are gorgeous so I decided to paint something like that on my nails.

CBL - OBSESSED WITH MARILYN

Oh gosh, it's been so long, am I even allowed to post here anymore! Life has just got so busy and I just don't paint my nails anymore, let alone do any nail art or take any pictures or edit any pictures! 
It makes me sad that this passion of mine has had to go on the back burner whilst I'm busy trying to get my degree and pretending to be a grown up! I post more frequently on instagram if you want to keep updated 
I don't want to abandon this blog so you'll probably see more posts from me, well hopefully you will.
Today I'm just showing a gorgeous polish from Colors by Llarowe, this is Obsessed With Marilyn, the most gorgeous colour and holographic finish.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Hey everyone, this year I'm only bringing you one halloween design. I saw this design on instagram and immediately felt inspired to recreate it, I actually love the purple gradient more than anything else!
So for the gradient I used Barry M Gelly in Prickly Pear, OPI Bouquet of Violets and Barry M Gelly Plum. I painted all the details with black acrylic paint, except the yellow is Essie Shorty Pants.

PICTURE POLISH KRYPTONITE & GLITTER PLACEMENT

Hey guys, how have you all been? I'm actually full of cold, I've moved out for university this year and came home for the weekend and my brothers have managed to make me ill, just in time for me to go back tomorrow to a very full week!
Anywho, for these nails I have on Picture Polish Kryptonite which was a present from my beautiful friend Saira and for that reason it's a very special polish, not to mention absolutely stunning!
I've used 2 coats on all my nails here and for the ring finger I did a glitter placement using this amazing triangle glitter I got from my other beautiful friend Sarah! 
Words cannot express how much I love these nails so just look at the pictures and scroll all the way to the bottom to see some awesome macro shots! Enjoy!
