Gelish: Marbled croc nails and bows.

I'm officially experiencing a love affair with my new Gelish gel polishes. Here is a look I created with the help of a pretty crystal bow from Born Pretty Store.

The bow is actually curved so it fits the nail quite well. I used gel to stick this one down - I don't know if it would stay put if you only used glue alone. This would be perfect to use with enhancements or on top of gel polish.

Now that I tend to be doing nails for others more regularly, it makes sense for me to wear gel polish as opposed to normal polish.

Birthday nails!

Hi everyone,

It was my birthday recently and I decided to do a little something with my special and extremely expensive Sha Pro nail stickers (O_0). The manicure is completely Gelish, by the way. I was doing some nails a few days afterwards so I needed something with a bit of longevity.

 Here's me posing with one of my little birthday gifts - a lip stain.

Sorry about the picture quality - my little old camera is on it's last legs and I had to use my iPhone!

Thanks for looking :)

OPI Dulce De Leche and Nail Art Nail Tattoos.

Happy Friday everyone.

I've been slipping on my posts again...what can I say? Nothing, apart from 'I'm getting there!'

Today, I have a quick OPI swatch and I'll also be showing off some Nail Art Nail Tattoos.

 OPI's 'Dulce De Leche'.

 Nail Art Nail Tattoos from Skin Art UK They are thin and self-adhesive. All you need to do is peel them carefully off the backing paper, and stick them onto your nails. Cover with a top coat and you're good to go!

 I decided to add a few ribbons and tails to the bow on my nail. I was trying to be 'office appropriate' whilst wearing these.  The beauty of wearing art on only a couple of fingers is that you can strategically place your gilded talons when necessary! Imagine me at the water cooler, talking to a senior manager...with my middle and ring fingers hidden behind a clip board, hahaha!
