A New Beginning - Gel Nails

Hello lovelies!
It's been a while...
And I've stepped away from the norm and tried my hand at gel nails.  On the recommendation of a friend I purchased the Red Carpet Manicure set from QVC and I've not looked back. 
I hope to do a more indepth review on the whole set. But for now, here are some of my mani's...

Daily Lacquer - Come What May and Sinful Colors - Cream Pink

Hello lovelies!
Here's an old mani I did for a challenge which I was far too lazy (seems to be my theme tune lately) to complete. 

Polishes used: Sinful Colors - Cream Pink Daily Lacquer - Come What May

I used nail vinyls to create the chevron tip. 

I hope you like them.

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.

Sparkling Stars

Hello lovelies!
As well as unused nail wraps I've got a lot of unused nail vinyls. 

Here are some funky star vinyls I had. 

Polishes used: Color Club - Metamorphosis  Color Club - Sky High Color Club - Daisy Does It

This mani is so cute! I even got asked "who does your nails!"

Grey & Pink Floral

Hello lovelies!
The last few posts have been focused on nail wraps but I've painted my nails today. 

Polishes used: China Glaze - Elephant Walk Glitzology - Trashy Ballerina

I love pink and grey together, it's such a pretty combo. The little decal on the nail just completed the cute feminine look.

Multi-Coloured Chevron Wraps

Hello lovelies!
After the success of the Rebel Nails Wraps I decided to give these ones from Nails Rock a wee go. 

There was a decent variety of colours and sizes. Although I didn't find the application just as smooth. 

And unfortunately despite having the same "should last up to 10 days" I had these off the next evening. 

They just started lifting at the edges and looked quite grotty so I had to remove them. 
It's a shame as they were very pretty. 

Rebel Nails - Metallic Aztec Wraps

Hello lovelies!
Long gone are the days where I have time to not only paint my nails every day but also to do nail art. 
It's for this reason I decided to give some nail wraps a go. 

I applied these first thing on a Saturday morning. Application was pretty straight forward. Very little faffing required. 

And what was even more impressive was the fact that they lasted me 6 full days. It does say up to 10 days but I can live with 6. 

The bonus being they were easily removed too. 
I'll definitely be using the others I have.
