Leopard Lady

Hey everybody,
In an attempt to procrastinate from doing tutorial readings I thought I'd share my first attempt at doing a free hand leopard print. Hopefully the picture works this time...

I used OPI "It's totally Fort-Worth it" with Supreme Nails nail art pen in "Black"

What a crack up!

Another week gone, geez they're going fast the moment! Or is it just for me? I only bought 4 nail polishes this week =P 'll post a photo of them in my next post. One of which was China Glaze Crackle "Cracked Concrete". It is on my nails atm and the more I look at it the more I like it!
Here is what its like...

I used two coats of Nutrimetics "Hibiscus" topped with CG "Cracked Concrete". Hibiscus is a fresh orange with a slight yellow shimmer. I think this is only the second time I've worn it as I'm not a huge fan of orange. The crackle looks quite light in the picture but it's really a dark gray. I'm definitely keen to try the other colours especially the teal and the pink it growing on me.
Have a good week y'all!!

Flags of our followers

Hey! I hope everyone has had a good week. It's flown by! Ive been busy with uni work, have my first assignment of the year due on Monday.

Today's mani was inspired by those who view this page (AKA; You!). I have done the five flags of the countries with the most page views.

So we have USA, France, Canada, UK and Greece, all of which are countries I am dying to go to!

I used BYS "Matte White" as a base and Revlon "Revlon Red" and BYS "Blue Bang"

China Glaze Crackle

What do y'all think of China Glaze Crackle nail polishes?? and how does it compare to OPI Black Shatter? What colour/s would be most worth while?
I'm thinking of getting some but would like your opinion first!

SO Pretty!!

Today I used my first polish from the OPI designer series and OMG it is SO pretty!!! It was a sunny day here so every time I was outside I couldn't help but stare :P

As mentioned yesterday, this is OPI DS "Extravagance". There is such a depth to this polish. It is defo one of my favs.
I'm gonna try doing some konad stamping over the top so stay tuned!....10:30pm

I did some stamping! What do you think?

I used bundle monster plate BM14 for the thumb and konad plate M3 for the rest.
Don't know about you but I like it :)

Polish Overload

Well over the last few weeks it is fair to say that I have spent FAR too much on nail polish!! In the last week alone I have bought 5!!
Here is a photo of some of the damage

From the right they are Orly "Blue Belle" and OPI "Austin-tatious Turquoise", "It's Totally Fort Worth It", "Princesses Rule" "DS Extravagance", "Teenage Dream" and "Not Like The Movies"
"Not Like The Movies" has amazing colour tones that are difficult to catch on camera. At some angles it looks silver, other angles purple and others green. I couldn't stop looking at it when I wore it last week.
Orly "Blue Belle": I had to get this one! A) the little bottles are so cute, B) my cat's name is Blue Belle and C) the colour matches my cat's eyes exactly (although the colour is a bit off in the above photo due to flash)!! See for yourself...

I feel bad that I haven't posted a design in a while. Uni has been getting in the way, I am going to try to post as often as I can and will most likely be an attempt to procrastinate from doing assignments or studying for tests :P

For this mani I used Revlon "No Shrinking Violet" for the tips and Nails Supreme nail art pens "Silver" for the dots.

Still here!!

Hey all!
I must apologize for the lack of posting this week. It has been very busy. I've been working, started back at uni, and my brother is visiting from down south. Although I am enjoying being back at uni, it's been quite an adjustment after four months off!

Today I have some more shatter for you!

I used OPI Black Shatter over OPI Do You Lilac It?
It's quite simple but I really like how bright the purple is underneath!
I hope to do an more arty mani this weekend when I have some time.
Hope everyone has a great Friday =D
