Royal Wedding

I love weddings,the whole excitement of planning every last detail to the exchange of vows and of course what the bride is wearing. Unless you've been living under a rock you cant miss the hype of the royal wedding that has happened today. I think it was beautiful and Kate looked stunning.

A royal wedding manicure was needed today just to set it off and heres mine.

Pink Leopard

Ages ago I bought Glamour magazine and got a free nail varish which was Nails Inc - Warwick Avenue. I used it once and didn't use it again till today. Its a gorgeous pink but it took 3 coats to get it to this colour. I also used Barry M - Instant Nail Effects which created what I think looks like leopard spots. 

What I Used

1. Nails Inc - Warwick Avenue

The Sun Has Got His Hat On

Aw I love when it's sunny. There is something about the sun being out that makes people act nicer. It just lifts everyones mood. It's also an excuse to eat lots of ice cream - although I don't normally need an excuse.

So todays nails are inspired by ice cream covered in sauce and sprinkles.

I scream You scream


What I Used

 1. Barry M - 306 Pale Blue
2. China Glaze - White On White
3. Nail Pen - Pink

100's and 1000's

It was so easy to put these on,although it was quite messy. All I did was put a top coat on my nail and sprinkled the 100's and 1000's over my nail and gently pressed them down so they stuck to the nails then applied a coat of Seche Vite.

Easter Nails

Barry M - 308 Berry Ice Cream
Barry M - 306 Pale Blue
W7 - 61 Spearmint
