Hey Hey Hey!!!!!!

Hey Guys!!!!!!!!!

So im back!!!!!

Not that ive been anywhere, i had the Xmas holidays off (which was lovely by the way) and then the boy moved down so we have just been taking a little bit of time out together and getting used to being with each other everyday.

I must say its been an awesome start to the year! Lets hope it continues like it :D

So down to the nails! Well they held up perfect over the xmas and new year and as soon as i got back to work..... THEY BROKE!! its obvious that i must be a homemaker and not an office worker!! Its much better for my nails to be at home!

So im sporting some VERY short nubbins right now! I think they look terrible :( i HATE short nails on me! I cant do anything with them (yes i know i shouldnt use my nails as tools)

I did so many nail designs in December that i just didnt have it in me to do it in January, i needed a little break. I was looking forward to having plain nails... well plain colour nails. Id never have REAL plain nails. Mine are sooooooo discoloured under this varnish i wouldnt subject people to that!

BUT its my birthday tomorrow and a friend of mine bought me a gorgeous nail set. Its OPI So So Skullicious. There are 4 awesome mini OPI nail varnishes! To be honest i love all of them! Although the yellow did need 3 coats.

So here we have my first nail design of 2013!!!

Sorry for the rubbish pics they took me so long as i was faffing about i just didnt want to go on the hunt for the camera too!

All Good Things Come In 3's

Hey everyone

Ive been super busy recently so ive not had time to post everyday. Getting ready for xmas :)

Im off over Xmas and i cant wait for 5pm Friday to come!!! WWOOOOO!!!

Ive also had some really good news over the last few days. Most of you that know me and my other half know that we live far apart :( and hes been looking for work down here with me. Not so hard most of you would think, but its been very hard and very stressful. Hes got visible tattoos just like me and finding an office based job..... not easy. People still stereotype and most take one look at you and dont want you! it really bugs me because no matter what you look like it shouldnt affect you capability to do your job.

Anyway HE GOT A JOB!!!!!!!! so after the xmas hes moving down here with me and e can finally be a 'normal' couple! i cant wait!! its the BEST xmas present we could have got!!!!

So ive saved 3 manis for you all :) ill let the pics do the talking. I decided that for the whole of xmas i was going to do xmas themed manis! i love xmas its my second favourite holiday after Halloween!!

Hope you like them

Sorry again i didnt not the varnishes i used but if you want to know im sure i can dig them out. Oh just quickly ive started using Nail Envy! man that stuff is good! how did i survive without it! the best nail strengthener ive used so far!!

I was that busy that i kepy my last lot of nail varnish on for 4 days!!! 4 DAYS!!! can you believe it. I was hiding my nails from everyone. Id just had a french manicure on andid had a curry over the weekend and it has stained 2 nails yellow GROSS!! but even then i still hadnt managed to take it off!!

So lat night i was sooooooo happy when i decided enough is enough i look terrible and put a new mani on :D

Its the start of xmas so i decided to do a xmas themed mani. Im going to try and keep it up through December.

China Glaze - White on White
Nails Inc : Glitter (gold)
Barry M Red
Barry M - Emerald (green)

Reverse Glitter

So ive started to feel a little festive and i know its not quite December yet but i felt the need to be a bit jolly.

Ive not done a reverse glitter mani before and ive seen a few posts from other on how they do theirs. So tonight i took their advise and used my nail polish brush to create the gradient. Im not sure if i like doing it that way and i feel ive cheated a bit on my regular make up sponge routine.

Its worked ok i would have preferred a sharper edge to my cuticles.... but hey you cant win them all!

Colours i used:

Nails Inc : Motcomb Street
Nails Inc : Electric Avenue

I wish now i had thought a bit more i would have used my new Nails Inc which is a finer gold glitter (one of my new bargains from Glamour magazine) as i think that the glitter ive used is a little too dense

Well here it is :)

Hope you like it!

Pirates and Flakies

Well i wasnt really around this weekend, i was getting tattooed and also being super lazy :)

But Sunday we had been invited to our friends little girls 4th birthday party. The theme was princesses and pirates. Pirates being more my thing and having a few pirate appropriate clothes i decided to use that them for my nails rather than princesses.

So here is the pirate mani:

This evenings mani i was desperate to used my Kleancolor flakies :)
Ive also just bought a new black: Nubar Noir and wanted to test it out! Ive had barry M black and to be honest i dont really think its that good! it started out a really watery consistency  and ended up being really gloopy :( NOT like Nubar Noir. This is amazinggggg!! i really love it!
So simple yet effective for tonight!
Although trying to get good pics off flakies...... really hard so im afraid the photies dont really show it off too much!

Its a drag.....

So tonight if im honest i wasnt going to post!

ive been super lazy and was home early from work and just wanted to chill...... but the nail varnish was calling to me!

So as i didnt want to sit cutting tape and faffing around i got my needle out. Yup its a needle drag mani to night. I think i need some more practise with this as it takes me a while to figure out where to drop and drag the needle. But i had fun with it and im now thinking what others colours will go well with this style.

I like that i cant still get a marbled effect without having to water marble. I hate water marble! it NEVER goes right for me and takes me hours!! its so messy and just a massive pain in the butt!!

Colours i used tonight:

China Glaze : Reggae To Riches (pinky/purple)
Nails Inc : Baker Street (blue)
Rimmel : Your Majesty (silver)

Ive noticed that in a few recent manis ive been using China Glaze Reggae To Riches. I have so many colours but im sure ive used this at least 3 times.

What are your go to colours?

I also want to say a MASSIVE Thank You to everyone that has read my blog and commented :) its for you guys i do it :D
