More Stripes!

I wanted something simple to wear so chose zebra stripes! And I just love how dramatic they looked. I also preferred my left hand ending in the black stripe too! Sorry for the awkward camera pose but I had to show you how much better it looked.

Moving swiftly on, this was Sinful Colors Snow Me White, my go to white for everything, stamped with MoYou London Pro Collection XL 04 using Kleancolor Metallic Black.

Be Still My Beating Heart!

Yes be still my beating heart, Picture Polish have brought out a new collaboration shade that will knock your socks off! I just love, Love, LOVE Picture Polish Eerie! The other Picture Polish that I adore above all others, Wisteria a lavender cream, has a serious contender and I have to say Eerie just wins out as it also has holo shimmer along with silver, blue, green and pink irregular sized shimmer! 

On to my mani then, two coats of Picture Polish Eerie which applied flawlessly, I then stamped delicate flowers from MoYou London Pro Collection XL 11 using Sinful Colors Snow Me White, all topped off with a coat of Seche Vite. I loved this particular mani so much that I wore it for longer than a week, this particular mani looked so ethereal!

Bad Romance?

Deborah Lippmann's Bad Romance is a beautiful blackened purple with multi-sized fuchsia pink hexs in it. Would I have called it Bad Romance? Not really I would have gone for something to do with black cherries because that's the sort of colour it is!

So on to my mani then, three coats of Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance over two coats of Skin Food's version of glitter off. (A cheap eBay find that works perfectly and even better than some others I have tried!) And then accent nails stamped using Mundo De Unas #15 Mexican Pink with MoYou London Pro Collection XL 11, the cherry blossom image and that's your tenuous link for today. All topped off with a coat of Seche Vite.

Mermaid Bling!

Yes I've ventured into the world of bling! As if my mani's weren't out there enough I've now gone down the road of further embellishment! I picked up more than a few bags of glass crystals and assorted pearls for about $10 along with a wax pencil for picking up the small blighters from eBay. This was my first attempt and I've only done one accent nail on each hand. 

On to my mani then, Ulta3 Block It Out, stamped with my favourite silver Cult Nails Lethal using MoYou London Sailor Collection 05 to give a lovely mermaid scale effect. I then used an ordinary slow drying top coat on my accent nail and carefully placed my crystals and pearls in haphazard random order! I then top coated everything with Seche Vite. This took some of the beauty away form the pearls but didn't effect the glass crystals at all. I'm still wearing this mani now and am loathe to take it off, its just so much fun.
The most outrageous comment I have received thus far is "I bet you don't do any housework with those nails"?! I mean come on its a mani it doesn't stop me doing anything! lol
What has been your most outrageous comment concerning your mani?
