I Heart Friday

Hello Lovely People!

Guess what, it’s Friday! I couldn’t be happier for the weekend and a long deserved rest (who am I kidding, it’s St Paddy’s Day).

I decided to do something simple and cute, it’s about time. I’ve had the same polish on for close to two weeks (with a bit of a touch-up here and there). I used a Modi nude that I have from Korea and Sinful Colors white (loving the Sinful Colors btw).

I hope you all like my simple mani. Wishing everyone a happy Friday and a fun-filled weekend.

French Floral Decals

Happy Tuesday everyone! Every day brings us closer to the Festive Season, the end of the year and yet another year to come. Can you believe it??

I’ve been very busy with work lately. I also can’t wear outrageous nails to work (I wish I could!). So I did a very simple French style mani, with a little floral decal or two (leftover from Korea)Β to spice it up!

I used a Modi white and a Face Shop glitter topcoat (all from my time in Korea).. I know what you are thinking, and yes, I do need to go shopping in South Africa and top up my polish collection πŸ™‚

It’s Movember Baby!!!

It’s that time of year again folks! That suspicious stubble chilling on your boyfriend/crush’s top lip just gets longer and longer, thicker and darker. Eventually, you have to think to yourself: “Something is going on here!”. And you would be right. It’s Movember baby!

I’m not sure about the rest of the world, but Movember is a pretty big deal in South Africa. I was looking at the website and it is so well done, I just had to do a mani! They’ve really gone all out this year making the website look grungy, masculine and funky. Really, it’s just full of wolves, snakes, lightning bolts, etc. Check out the international Movember website here.Β 

So all the men out there (not sure how many will be reading a nail art blog) pledge to grow your mustache this month to promote awareness for testicular cancer, prostate cancer and mental illness. It’s hard to believe that all the hairy faces this month are actually growing their ‘tashes for a cause. But what an awesome way to initiate conversation and increase awareness.

Here is my mani (you kind of have to see the website to understand, so check it out):

Halloween Challenge: #3 Things that go BUMP in the night!

Fresh off the press! I’ve just finished this mani and I’m very happy!

The theme for today was “Things that go BUMP in the night”. I decided to stick with one type of monster and just make a little family of them on my fingertips. I think they are more adorable than scary… What do you think? Which is your favourite.. the “baby” on my pinky nail is definitely mine!

Polka dot and lace

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 πŸ™‚

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! πŸ™‚

Halloween Challenge #1: Scary Movies

The first of the Halloween Challenge, and I must say, I’m extremely excited! I love how it came out and I hope you all love it too!

I decided to do one of the “classic” cheesy scary movies, Scream. I watched Scream 4 over the weekend, although most of the horror came from the terrible script and acting, a part of me actually enjoyed it! I love, love, love how this mani came out!
