A Bit Of A Do!



Yes it's that time of year again when I'm wined and dined by my employer for a job well done along with everyone else! I'm afraid I wasn't really up to it this year but I tagged along and this is my mani I wore to match my turquoise lace dress. So two coats of Dior Diorific Lady stamped with MoYou London Gothic Collection 04 using Mundo De Unas Turquoise #5

And I'm Back With Enchanted Polish!


Well we've moved, we are nearly tidy with just a few stray boxes left and my nails have grown a bit so all is good. Femme Fatale had a grab your Enchanted Polish wish list type sale on just recently and I naturally had to take part! Amongst the colours I got was this beautiful holographic gold called The Good Life and there you have my tenuous link for this post!
 

Adventures in Stamping a facebook page had been awash with white and gold mani's. I could not believe how beautiful they all looked so I jumped on the bandwagon with Enchanted Polish The Good Life stamped with MoYou London's Gothic Collection 04 using Mundo De Unas White

What With Moving And Nubs -


Well we have finally moved and I'm afraid a couple of nails didn't make it! Neither did the TV but that is a whole other story! So no nail polish for the week of moving mainly because I couldn't locate everything followed by a week of so short nails leaves me searching through the archives to find my birthday nails from last month!
 

They had to be blue of course my favourite colour so I chose Cirque Midsummer Night stamped with MoYou London Zodiac Collection 08 Virgo using Cult Nails Lethal my go to silver stamping polish.

Roll On Summer!


After days of sunshine I thought Summer must surely be here soon so I decided to do a really firey sunshiney mani! The minute I had it on my mitts the weather turned grey for a couple of days. But we are now back on track so all is good.


Seeing quite a few mani's with different but connected designs, I thought I would have a go too. And I must say I'm quite pleased at how these turned out. 


On to my mani then two coats of Barry M Blueberry for the bright Summer blue skies I'm expecting with an accent nail in Barry M Mango. I then stamped with MoYou London Zodiac Collection 07 the Leo plate using Mundo De Unas #11 Yellow and #53 Geranium. And to give this mani extra sparkle a quick coat of Northan Lights Hologram top coat gold before finishing with Seche Vite.

Something Simple!


Having seen a lot of mani's that are just a neutral nail plus stamping in white aka the famous bridal nails which are in fact stickers I thought I would do the same but in colour and not the same image! Plus I had just bought a new gorgeous top with these beautiful spring colours so... 


On to my mani then, just my regular base coat I use Trind Nail Repair Stamped with Barry M Blackberry a dark teal blue and Barry M Key Lime (the name speaks for itself) which I found didn't really show up as much as Barry M Blackberry so I stamped over the top of that with Barry M Kiwi using MoYou London Bridal Collection 07. And then top coated with Seche Vite I seriously cannot live without that stuff! And I must just say that Barry M polishes are divine and the Hi Shine's stamp beautifully.

Water Marbling Success!



Well success of a sort! I don't know how I did it with regards to water temperature other than it was tepid i.e. not cold straight from the tap because I put some warm water in it too. I tried making a pretty pattern too, but that wasn't as easy as it looks on all the tutorials. And I didn't like some of the patterns on my nails so I just covered those up with stamping!

 
On to my mani then, two coats of Sinful Colors Snow Me White followed by Seche Vite. Then my water marble using Jade Safire Dream the blue with turquoise micro glitter, Jade Fascinto Violeta a holographic Violet and Jade Over the Rainbow a holographic reddish pink. Next having seen some nails didn't look very water marbly(!) I stamped over the top using MoYou London Explorer Collection 22 my most favourite plate with Kleancolor Metallic Fuschia, top coated with Seche Vite and called it a day!

Citrine Seduction!


Just how cool is that name? Jade Citrine Seduction! I just love orange nails (who'd have thought it? Certainly not me all those years ago). Citrine Seduction is just bursting with orange micro glitter which dries matte so doesn't show its true beauty until you've used an ultra glossy top coat. Below is a shade picture which shows that in more detail.


On to my mani then, two coats of Jade Citrine Seduction one would have sufficed but I did two just in case. And because its a matte polish and ultra quick drying I didn't top coat before the stamping! So that is in fact Sinful Colors Snow Me White! Which turned a very pale orange the minute I top coated with Seche Vite. I actually loved this although the contrast was not as much as I originally intended. The plates I used were MoYou London Explorer Collection 27 on my fingers and the same larger image on my thumbs from MoYou London Explorer Collection 26.
