Galaxy Nails!

I was feeling creative yesterday so I also tried out galaxy nails, here's how they turned out :-)

I used models own black magic as the base and painted a coat of thunder & lightening black glitter over it.
Since I don't have any makeup sponges I simply used cotton pads to dabble yellow, white, blue and a dash of red onto the nebula. Then I used a white nail art pen and a cocktail stick to add small stars :-)

Hope you liked this quick post! What do you think, will you be trying this?
Much love,

Marble nails - first attempt!

Hi! So I watched a few tutorials on marble nails and got the idea pretty quickly so wanted to try it out.

It turned out pretty messy because I've never done it before and I was panicking whilst doing it haha, so please excuse that :-) Also, I attempted at my little finger 3 times but every one failed so I just left it :-P

I had to trial and error a few polishes because some didn't really work in the water, speaking of which, it is pretty so I took a photo...

So pretty! It is a lot of fun but kind of annoying at the same time with clearing up every time :-)

Most of the colours I used were Barry M which worked quite well as they are a bit of a watery formula.

I think the best ones were the index and my thumb nails, the others weren't great. Oh well practice makes perfect right? :-)

I would write a basic tutorial but seeing as mine are very messy and not so great, I'll leave it to you to watch a GOOD tutorial haha, so here's a few links:


See you later :-)

Stripes and Aquaviolet Beetlejuice!

Hi there! Sorry about my lack of posts, I've had a lot going on lately!
Anyway, here's a quick post for you :-)

These are my nails (looking very short!) painted with Models Own's Aquaviolet Beetlejuice. I love this shade from their beetlejuice range as it changes colour at different angles in the light, going from purple one moment to green and blue the next! You can probably see this in the photo, but it is way better in real life :-)
It really is lovely. Also it is very well-wearing and durable, hardly any chips in sight for quite some time!

I decided to add some stripe detail with my MO black nailart pen - makes it look a bit like a beetle somehow... don't you think? :-P

Oh, I decided to sell a few things on eBay, so just thought I'd post to see if anyone's interested in any of it :-)

Anyway, I promise I'll post a nice detailed nail art design soon when I find the time :-)
Have a great week!

Pastels and tiny jewels

I've just recently got a new DSLR in preparation for my Photography A level in September, so I will be posting better quality photos from now on :-P

Anyways, hi lovelies :-) I thought I'd go all lovely and girly after my bout of black and red nails!

L-R: MO nailart pen, Blooboo, Lilac Dream, Pastel Pink, Saffron White, MO '3 in 1 Top, Base & Gloss'.
Above: Nail art rhinestones wheel
So, I applied my new Model's Own base coat (I got this and Blooboo for a 2 for £8 deal on at Boots!) then painted each nail a random pastel colour.

I'd like to point out that I recently purchased Saffron in White from eBay as my first white varnish (finally!) and I'm so glad I did! I'ts such a pure and wonderful white, applying perfectly with just one coat and not a chip in sight so far! At just £2 I highly recommend that you invest in this if you haven't got a good white in your collection :-)

On top of random nails I carefully stuck 3 tiny rhinestones to the edges (they stay securely on the nail varnish and are easily sealed down with top coat!) using my fingertips - fiddly but achievable business with patience! :-)

My finished nails and their glitzy extras! 
My sister's lovely design (plus MO Champagne) and the fabulous pastels!

So there's another nail digest for you :-) Hope you liked it - try out your own pastel mix, or perhaps try using nail gems - I can't stop rotating mine and making them sparkle :-P

Very late Valentine's Day nails :-)

L-R: Red red wine, Lili's Pink, Pink Fizz, Magenta Divine

I did this a while back and thought it was finally time to show you lovelies some more nail experiments :-)
These were actually my nails on Valentine's Day, just another mix of Models Own colours - and one which I really loved - it was very feminine and glitzy! :-) You get the idea :-P

Red & Black re-invented!

Hi again! I has absent-mindedly picked off most of my lovely blue nails so it was time for a change!
I thought I would do both hands differently so I used the classic red and black, but with a white nail art pen I added a slight twist to each set :-)

On my left hand I applied 2 coats of MO's red red wine and then did 4 stripes of white on 3 of 5 nails, which personally I really like the look of - I think all 5 would be a stripe overload. :-)

On my right hand I applied 2 coats of MO's black magic and on my thumb I carefully attempted to draw a yin yang symbol (left handed as well! I even impressed myself haha!) on it. For this I used the white pen again. I think even something this simple on one hand can really change the feel of the black nails.

Anyways, just a quick idea after a rather serious and emotional post!
What would you do with a white nail art pen?
