31 Day Challenge - Stamping (Win)

Hi all!

Day 14 of the challenge is stamping...



... and this is my second attempt at this mani, as the first one was an epic fail though I've posted it for you anyway.
I tried out two looks from the one plate, so my left had is giraffe print and my right hand cow print.



Polishes used:
Urban Decay - Sidecar
Konad - Black

Cheeky Plate No.1


I think this shows you that you need to be careful when choosing a stamping polish.

  1. I really like the patterns on on your stamping plate! I think you've done a good job-I'm proper rubbish at stamping! X

    1. I'd def recommend the cheeky plates they're very easy to use, if I can do it anyone can xo

  2. Adorable. I love the first one pictured with the large spots. You chose a perfect base color, and this looks great. I have a hard time picking good contract colors and I only have 1 Konad polish in black so I am limited in what I can do. I am still experimenting with off the shelf polishes but then again, I have trouble with picking good base and stamping colors so there is enough contract and the design will show. Oh I seem to have a knack for stamping crooked too no matter how I eyeball it, and think I've lined it up just so. Ha ha. I've only used Konad plates and Salon Express so far, but I have had my eye on some of those Cheeky plates and designs. Really cute. Don't bother with the Salon Express kit as the images are etched shallow and the design comes out very faint and without much detail.

    1. That happened with the first plates I got they were too shallow. Will stick with cheeky for now =) xo

I'm trying.

Hi! So I've been trying my damnedest to keep this blog going. And I'm not doing very well. I had drafted some posts a while back (which I will still go ahead and post). I never got round to posting them at the time because I had an iPhone and the app just didn't want to work for me.
I know theyre a little out of date but I hope you still find them interesting. So what's been happening since I last posted?  Well I met a guy (on Tinder of all places), we got engaged last November (I'll do a proper post on this), and we got marries this September!  We enjoyed a wonderful honeymoon in Japan and for the past month its been back to reality. I am going to change this blog a bit.  Before it could have always been classified as a beauty blog. Now I think it'll be more of an eclectic blog (by the way check out She's Eclectic one of my all time favourite bloggers). Anyway,  sorry about all the words and lack of pictures bit I hope to rectify that soon. Bye for now.

Money Smart Nail Art Competition Entry

Hi all!
Wow!  I'm really shocked, MoneySupermarket.com have invited me to participate in their Money Smart Nail Art Bloggers Competition.  This means I am in with the chance to win a prize worth £300, how amazing would that be!


Anyway for my regular followers you will know that I'm mad on leopard print!  So I thought what better design to do a tutorial on.  
Materials Required: Base Coat - I use OPI Matte Nail Envy Selection of polishes - cremes are best for opacity but you can use glitters if you build them up Nail Art pen or Dotting Tool  Top Coat - I use Seche Vite

Paint your nails with the base coat to protect your nail from staining (I also find that Nail Envy encourages nail growth). *A good tip is before you start, wipe your nails with some nail polish remover, this is called squeaking the nail, it will remove any excess oil, making your mani last longer.

Paint your nails your chosen colours, any colours work but I've chose a few of the Barry M Gellies (which are c…

Pastel Polka Dots

Hello lovelies!
A lazy Friday night in resulted in playing with polish and with studs. 

Polishes used: Lime Crime - Parfait Day Treasures By Tan - Gramma Cupcake

I was in the mood for some spring pastels to brighten up this horrid grey weather we've been suffering recently. 

I added the studs as an afterthought, I was going to attempt some freehand art but I love how these turned out.
