Lorikeet Selfie!

So I had just done my nails with Qutique Gel using the base and top coat. Yes really! my nails are that pale, that the moons do not show up in photos let alone real life. Anyway moving on, I then went out to get coffee sans a complete mani while I waited for inspiration to strike. When I came back, the Lorikeets that we feed were screaming for their food, and as I was taking pictures of them feeding one landed on my shoulder. I quickly switched the camera and took a selfie with him! 

And that is the inspiration for this weeks mani!

Glitter tips using Lynnderella One Nutty Fruitcake a multi coloured square glitter bomb (in fact one of the first, if not the first to use square glitter) top coated with Glisten & Glow HK Girl. Unfortunately we have had one serious storm here that went on for three days so no sunshine pictures to show off how seriously sparkly Lynnderella glitters are

Cue Cute Owls!

I just adore the cute bedding that is coming out for young toddlers now featuring owls, unfortunately there is no one for me to indulge. Tinkerbell and Elsa now rule the roost! (Absolutely no pun was intended, but after I had written it and realised it, I couldn't delete it! So I'm sorry if you are suffering)

So anyway, I came across Messy Mansion MM19 stamping plate and I had my cute owls on my mitts instead! This is Quitique Snow White for the background and I used Barry M Gellies starting with Kiwi on my index finger, Watermelon on the middle finger and thumb, Blood Orange for the larger cute owl on my ring finger and finally Pink Punch for the smaller owl on my pinkie. As you can see the Barry M Gellies stamp exceptionally well, and my application or technique could use a little work.

Classic Black And Gold

I'm so in love with this mani, it was just perfect! I thought it looked very Aztecy. This was Qutique Shadow on thumb, index and pinkie, with two coats of Revlon 1000 Volts on my middle and ring finger. Stamped with MoYou London Kaleidoscope Collection 08 using Kleancolor Metallic Black on my middle and ring fingers and Kleancolor Metallic Yellow on my thumb. 

And a side by side shot as Revlon 1000 volts didn't stamp or show up very well being thinner and made using two pigments namely yellow and orange. Kleancolor on the other hand stamps amazingly well being thicker and just the one pigment yellow.
