Models Own Polished

This post is going to feature polish from Models own because there was a stall in milton keys that sells nothing but Model own stuff and they had a deal on nail polishes. I could resist and hopefully this will show you why!

Can we just take a moment to appreciate that photos taken in direct sunlight always come out so much better and one day I will have a whole page of beautiful nail photos because I followed the rules and took all the photos daylight.

(Left photo)This was a another dotting tool one, I like the dotting tool it just so easy to use. Not sure if you can see it either but that base colour is metallic lilac and surprising shinny too. Definitely one of my new favorites. Photo 04-03-2016, 12 27 20

(Right photo)This one has received an absolute tonne of compliments, probably because it pretty much glows in the dark, so you cant exaclty miss it. I couldn’t resist that yellow though, its so bright even when I tried it in the stall without a white base it looked neon. Ive tried neon yellows before but this one really took the cake and raved with it.
The dotted design didnt really work that well with it, I think next time something a little more contrasting might be better. You know because I need to blind more people with bright nails. Photo 06-03-2016, 17 12 41

(Left photo)This I think is my favorite of the latest nail I’ve done. Because of the that sheer polish im holding is awesome. Its a blue tinted with a really fine pink iridescent glitter. Another one that is so shinny and light catching that it was tricky to get a decent photo. I kinda wish I’d done the pink heart in a slightly more pastel colour but putting that shimmer over lot still brings it together really well, more of a pastel shade just would have worked a tad better.
Now I have to think of more pastel design so I can use this shimmer so much more!

A ying Yang Design, This one just came out messy. Not sure if you can see it but due to the way I had to keep layering its come out quite bumpy, nor did I clean it off around my pinkie nail.
I did also have issues with the black, its quite old now so doesn’t always want to play nice. But not to worry, I have since purchased a new black and will soon be using it.

Does this remind you of a certain vault?
Yep, its my fallout inspired nails. Yes I know the colours aren’t exactly spot on but its a little tricky to match something out of my current collection and this was the closest. Its inspired by the classic vault suits, I was going have one of the nails have the vault number on it instead then remembered I can only draw with my right hand, so wouldn’t have been able to replicate the design on the other hand. Ah, nails problems.

Excuse the chipping on this one, I literately put in on went to work and they chipped within a couple of hours. This is why nail lacquer is important kids.
As you can probably guess this is a Deadpool nail in honor of when the film was released. All I used to create his face was a dotting tool and more impressively I managed to get the designs on both hand to look pretty close.

Thats all folks! For the time being anyway…

Geeky Nails

So time for another nail post, these are some of the more geeky recent nails Ive put together.

IMG_6497As usual please excuse the state of my hands, my job is quite manual so they get grubby sometimes.

First up is a simple black and red design that originally was going to be a Deadpool themed nail art but kinda didn’t work out that way, so its just a black and red one. But it was the first time I added gems to my nails which I think I love. Just stuck them on with clear lacquer, and then added a coat over them for some extra hold. They actually stuck really well, they even lasted at work without chipping too badly.

IMG_6489IMG_6488Next up features a set of nail stickers from Nail Inc, that I got on sale from Boots. Ive tried nail stickers before but never really liked how they stuck, these ones were only half sized stickers so I thought they would be better. And you know what they were! Went with a simple pop art theme by painting the nails in bold colours then adding the stickers to random nails and then filled the partial empty space with white dots. The yellow nail is the only one that didn’t quite work, the shade was too pale so for the next time I’ll use a darker shade.

IMG_6507My last nail look for this post is possible my favourite! I mean who doesnt love pokeballs! This one was super easy, I made the pokeballs all different angles as I didnt want them all to be the same, though it might be a tad dull. But all that was needed for this was a small paint brush and a single dot! <3

Pastel purple blends

I’ve been a bit boring or uninspired with my nails lately. Though this one I was super in love with. Started with a purple base on all the nails and just did a simple blend with pink and blue. The colours just worked really well for me. And double bonus this photo was taken after work and no chips !

This is such a rubbish photo. The top had ruffles all over the front which doesnt reflect in the image. Shame. But I love the shape of this outfit. It looks like Ive got such an hour glass figure. And the shoes that went with this, my stunning black spike boots. Another loving it moment.

Now this is what you really come for isnt it? The Nails :p

Two gradients to start. I picked up a couple of new glitters from Barry M and had to do something with them and gradients are something you cannot go wrong with. The glitters are great they clean off so well which is always something that puts me off glitters and they are so shinny I honestly could not resist.

Holy smokes Batman she took a photo in direct sunlight! Yeah so photos in sunlight look far better than in the dark with a lamp, who knew. You can see a definate improvement in the gradients each time I do them. With this one I wanted to jazz it up a bit more and just dotted in red up the side of the nail then dotted white inside the red and made an almost cross over pattern. I will be doing more versions of this one in the future.

I took a much bolder approach with this one. Not sure what spurred it on but I really wanted to something in Green and Black. Again this design will probably pop up a few more times.
