Polish Alcoholic and Beauty Expression have an awesome giveaway running for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which was in October. I was very keen to participate, it’s such a good cause and I’ve been wanting to do a BCA mani this October. Slightly late.. but the Giveaway is still running until the 7th of November, so check out the links and get involved.
I know this is off-topic (I am supposed to be posting a Halloween mani today), but I didn’t get a chance to do my Halloween mani last night. I’ll try do it asap 🙂
In the meantime, here is a fun little mani I did this week. I wore it to work, so it couldn’t be too outrageous. I used Tip Top Solar Flare for the base and Tip Top Cream Puff for the polka dots. I also added some lace stickers that I had lying around from Korea.
I really like it.. Hope you do too! 🙂
I did this manicure a while ago while I was recovering from my appendix surgery. You would think that I would have done about 10 manicures in that week I was off work, but to be honest I was so high on pain meds that I don’t think they would have been very good. The time wasn’t completely wasted, I used it to catch up on my sleep and series (I started and finished Game of Thrones in that time).
I was going for a Pop Art theme.. I attempted to make a tutorial, but again, the pain meds!
My next post will probably be for the Hallowe’en Challenge. Anyone want to join in?
Our new apartment has a beautiful lemon tree hanging over our balcony. I just couldn’t resist doing a lemon manicure! I mean, all you nail artists out there would have done the same, right?
So I did a very simple lemon-style manicure. I started with a white undercoat. I used a dotting tool to make some circular/oval yellow shapes. I then used a nail art brush to paint on some cute lime green leaves. Topped off with some brown dots and lines to give more detail. What do you think?
Now that I’m settled in (well, two out of three suitcases are unpacked), I’m going to try be more active with my posts. I’m looking forward to doing some awesome, creative manicures and tutorials in the near future! – I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!
I’m loving being back in South Africa. Although it’s technically autumn, it’s absolutely beautiful weather. This inspired me to do a cheerful, summery nail design.
I’m loving nude at the moment, so I used that as the undercoat. I’m still using mainly my Korean brands, but I’m hoping to go shopping soon. We’re staying a bit outside of Johannesburg, it’s about a 15min drive to the nearest store. So I used a Modi nude colour, Modi white and a luminous blue and orange by Organic Farm (also a Korean brand that were super cheap). The only other thing I used was my dotting tool to make little daisies. Please excuse the pics, they aren’t 100% as I haven’t made a new lightbox yet. But I hope you can get the gist of it anyway.
We have also been playing around with my camera trying to do some awesome water shots in the pool. So we tried a nail one. It’s not amazing, but I like the effect. I’ll definitely try it again 🙂
And last, but not least: Here is a glimpse of the beautiful estate we’re currently staying on with my boyfriends parents. It really feels like a vacation and I’m trying to soak in all of the beautiful surroundings. This is a picture we took when we went on a golf cart ride around the estate the other day. I’m really so blessed and happy to be in such a pretty place!
The topic for today is “lights”. Easier said than done! Originally I wanted to do something colourful, like colourful Christmas lights. But, I quickly changed my mind.. I went for a simple manicure!
I used OPI “Wooden Shoe Like to Know” (my only OPI 😦 But I love it), a black nail art brush and a gold glitter polish. I tried to make it look like a string of lights, but I’m not sure if it came across like that.
Anyway, here it is 🙂 Its really really simple, but I hope you like it 🙂
Sorry for the late post, it’s been a busy weekend! I did these nails a day or two ago, but I haven’t had time to post them yet.
I really struggled with this topic. Eventually, I just Googled it and used a picture for inspiration. I used tons of different random polishes, too many to list. I hope you like it! Here’s the final product 🙂
