Birthday Nails.

Here are my glitter-bombed Birthday Nails.
And the colours I used as bases.

Found th Foil Formula.

Yay I found the formula for using foils and having them not crack.
I used the foil, the a coat od Rimmel Matte Top Coat, the Nubar Diamont, then Seche Vite. I waited for each top coat to dry before applying the next.
And this is what I came up with.

Classy except for the Clean - Up

Please excuse the really bad clean up on these, I can't explain why, apparently the cleaning part of my brain is still on holidays.
This is Revlon Fire Fox, which is really a Matte Suede, with Konad Special Black stamped on the top. Didn't notice the plate number sorry.
On another note, my tax time purchases have started arriving. I'm slightly embarrased at the amount. Should I wait till everything has come and do a big haul post. Ot do little haul post as the stuff comes in. I'm more inclined to do the second one and have a really big finish(trust me it's big). What do you think?

Copper Mani.

Hi this is taken with my other new camera (Another purchase for the month). Just a little one this time, other is a big SLR.

This is Revlon Copper Penny.

Not one from my big tax day haul, this came from shopping with my mum before we saw Harry Potter on Friday.

Must spice it up tonight, my man doesn't like that it's boring.

Tax Time Problems, or Tax Time Greatness

Got my tax back and this is what I've purchased in the last 24 hours.
China Glaze Metal Crackles x6
Color Club x20
BYS x10
Liquid Palisade
Nail Art Pens x24
Glitter Nail Art Pens x12
Nubar Night Sky Collection
Fake Nails so I can sort polishes by colour.
Little boxes for above fake nails.

I have got to stop, or I wont have enough for a new fish tank.
Hopefully these things get delivered before school holidays finish, so my man doesn't notice.
They probably wont fit in my Lennart's (Things from IKEA that didn't cost as much as Helmer's.)
I will do a post on my storage when my new things come in.
Also I got my giveaway pack from Sharon at Polish Infatuated so they will be in a post soon too.

Yay. Out little Custard is all better, which we weren't expecting 'cause he was literaaly lying on the bottom of the tank not moving. Thank for all your good wishes. Here's a version of the mani I wore over the weekend. And got lots of comments on.

Ths is Ulta3 Snazzle with BYS Matte Blue on the accents.

Fail, Fail and, finally a Win

Some good ideas, I thought, that really didn't work.

Firstly Shatter Patchwork Mani.

Can't believe I'm actually showing a pic of this immense fail.

Then a Splatter Mani. Apparently something that everyone else in the world can do but me.

And , finally, yay something I can bear to look at for a couple of days. Zoya Lolly (Mod Mattes) with Nubar 2010 on the tiop then a matte topcoat.

Scotch Tape Practice.

Here are some pics of Scotch Tape practice. I wan't intending it to be practice but the man did'nt like the first one,then didn't like the second one so I just had fun with it from there.I don't think I need to tell any one about my inspiration for Tape manis but I will anyway, the fantastic Erika at Chloe's Nails, does amazng things with Scotch Tape.

This is Ulta3 English on the bottom with BYS Mint Green Matte and BYS Black Matte as the accents. I found the BYS mattes to be incrediblt good for using with Scotch Tape.

If you don't have any yet, maybe you can win them in my Giveaway which is being sponsored by, a fantastic place to get the entire BYS range.

Too Much Green

Here is my 'ouch my eyes hurt' green mani.
It is 2 coats of Color Club The Lime Starts Here over 2 coats of China Glaze Refresh-Mint.
However when me and the man looked at it last night it was way too green, and that was inside with the dull light on. So I put China Glaze Black Mesh over the top.

Even with the crackle when I went outside into the sun this morning the green was still ouchy on my eyes.

Very, very, very, green this one.
