Hey guys, today I have another beauty from the ILNP Ultra Chrome collection. This is Reminisce, it shifts from green to blue and teal with a touch of purple, I didn't think this would be one of my favourites but this is absolutely gorgeous and I wanna wear it ALL the time. 
I used 2 coats and one coat of topcoat below. 

Argh, so stunning. Have a good weekend folks, I'll see you in the next post :)

Hey peeps, how are you all? Today I have another mani using some of the awesome glequins from DesignsbyV, for these nails I used these neon pink rhombus glequins*
I wasn't sure what to pair these with, in the end I decided to go with something neutral. So I started off with a coat of Sally Hansen Whirlwind White and sponged on some Essence Got A Secret and Barry M Grey. When I applied topcoat the sponging effect more or less disappeared but I love the glequins, I haven't seen anything like them before and guess what... I love neon glequins! 

Ok, I think I may have rambled a bit but my head is tonight working not properly.

Hi my friends, how are you all? I'm super cold right now just waiting to go work. 
Today I have some cute and easy glitter placement nails. In the package I received from DesignsbyV there was some gold holo bar glitter*, they're not the easiest to work with and you can't really do a full glitter placement with them. So I decided to use them to make a pattern like I've done here before. 
I started off with 2 coats of Catrice King of Greens and then did the glitter placement. It wasn't difficult to do in fact it was quite easy and didn't take very long so this is something you can try out if you don't have a lot of time. 

Ok, I'll see you guys tomorrow :)

Hey guys, so yesterday I was featured in Illamasquas Beauty Spotlight! You can see the post here. You guys know how much I love Illamasqua so this was a huge honour :) 
Anyway on to the nails, for these nails I used Illamasqua Jo'mina on all the nails except the accent nail on which I used Illamasqua Muse. I then used these 3mm turquoise glequins* which I got from DesignsbyV to do a full glitter placement on my accent nail and I placed a single piece near the cuticle. Because these glitter pieces are on the large side you do need several layers of top coat to stop it catching on everything.  

Ok, so that's it for todays post I will see you tomorrow :)

Hey guys, how are you all? I'm sorry it's been nearly a week since I last posted but this week has been busy! We've had my adopted granddad staying with us and my little cousin. I've also been looking for jobs for this summer and I also spent a day 'deep cleaning' my bedroom after exams lol! 
Anyway enough about me, let's talk nails. I know nearly everyone has done a tutorial for a stamping decal but I made this a while ago and it seemed like a shame to not post it. So for these nails I went for a multichrome peacock design, which I will show you how to recreate below, just click the 'read more' button.

Hey guys, just a really quick post tonight. 
For these nails I started with 2 coats of Illamasqua Taint, when that dried I used the purple holographic moon glequins* I received from Designsbyv to make a nice stripe down the nail and I actually really like how these turned out and the purple and brown contrast. I finished it all off with 2 coats of top coat, you may need another coat because this glitter is a little bit thicker than the other glequins I use. 


Ok guys, I'll catch up with you in the next post :)

Hey guys, so it's been a busy few days, I had a mammoth exam yesterday (which I'm so glad is over and fingers crossed I've passed) my auntie had a baby girl in the early hours of today, and today is also my 21st birthday! For my birthday nails I'm just wearing ILNP Sirene. I haven't received any nail polish for presents but I got a gorgeous Michael Kors watch from my parents and other bits and bobs :) I also decided to treat myself to 2 of the new Ultra Chromes from the ILNP Summer collection. 
Ok, so for these nails I started with 2 coats of ILNP Undenied and then I used Barry M Gold Foil and stamped on an image from the BM- 313 plate. I think this is my first stamping mani for about a year and a half! Blimey! 

Like all the other Ultra Chromes by ILNP this is a stunner and I love the gold detailing with it! 
Ok, I'll see you guys in my next post, enjoy your weekend :)

Hi guys, I hope you've all had a lovely weekend :) I am obsessed with the Ultra Chromes from ILNP, and to think I didn't like multichromes before :o 
So for these nails I used ILNP Reminisce as a base colour, I thought this would be my least favourite of the 3 from the Spring collection but I actually love this! I then used Barry M Gold Foil to paint on the mermaid scales. It's not turned out perfect but I really, really like them!

Have a great week guys and I'll see you all soon :)
