Coral Print

Hello lovely people! I have so many nail varnishes that are neglected,so I've decided that I'm going to try and a mani with at least one nail varnish that I haven't used in a while. Today it's the turn of Barry M - Coral. I bought this last year and only wore it once!
So here it is.

(Sorry for the rubbish pictures. The rain made it hard to get any decent ones)

Coral Print





I used Orly - Purple Crush on my ring finger and a few rhinestones that I've bought through Ebay,just to stop it looking like your typical leopard print.

What I Used


Barry M - 296 Coral
Orly - Purple Crush
Nail Art Pen - Black
Nail Art Pen - Purple Shimmer

Hope you like it.

E.L.F - Nude

Hi guys! This is the final instalment in my recent E.L.F haul. This is a sheer pink nail varnish,i put 3 coats of this on and still had visible nail line. I suppose it could be used when you havent got time to properly paint your nails or maybe for work.





I also bought a matte finisher nail varnish. 


Here's all 3 nail varnishes with a 2 coats of matte finisher.

E.L.F - Champagne

This nail varnish is nothing like the name. I thought it would be a beige colour but it is pink peach colour. The nail varnish is also alot darker than the swatch on E.L.F's website. Once again it dried really quick.


This is 3 coats with a top coat



Price - £1.50 (10ml)

E.L.F - Smoky Brown

Hi guys!
Today I'm showing you E.L.F's Smoky Brown.


This is a lovely chocolate colour,the swatch on E.L.F's website is alot different to the actual nail varnish. The plus side is that it dries really quickly and is really cheap.

This is with 2 coats and a top coat



 
Price - £1.50 (10ml)

Gifts From America

There are so many nice nail varnishes available in America that you can't get over here in the U.K. When my sister went to America recently to visit my mum I expected her to bring me something back but not theses! I've been looking for any Orly nail varnishes for ages!

L-R
Orly - Purple Crush
Finger Paints - Laugh My Art Off
Nina Ulta Pro - Orange Flame

In this picture Finger Paints & Nina Ultra Pro are the other way around.


All these were with 2 coats. 

Also she picked me these up

This is a double ended nail brush. On one end is a detailing brush and the other a dotting tool.



Some nail art decals



I recently made an order with E.L.F so I'll be posting about them soon.

(what a rubbish title to this post!)

Dusky Mauve

So here's the second part to my post yesterday,this isn't a colour I'd normally pick up but when I did I was really surprised with how it looked in the bottle. It is a dark chocolate/plum loaded with purple shimmer and I love it. It looks so pretty and I love how the purple glistens in the sunlight


Dusky



The only thing I don't like about this is that it chips really easily and it shrinks quite bad. I painted my nails last night and had to do touch ups this morning before taking pictures.

Grey Roses

Rubbish title I know but it's the best I could come up with! 

Everything is sort of back to normal in my household now,Grace's teeth have finally come through so she is a lot happier now which gave me a chance to paint my nails

Lately I love grey varnish,I've seen quite a few people wearing it so I thought I'd try it. So I popped into Superdrug and saw they had an offer on Barry M nail varnish, 2 for £4.99. I came out with this:

Barry M - Grey



I decided that it looked to dark for me so out came the nail pens

I'll post the other nail varnish I bought tomorrow.

Teething+Breakage

The teething refers to my little baby girl not me,bless her. She has another tooth coming through and it is causing her a lot of pain,also she is just getting over a cold so she is really going through it. I have had no time to post or even paint my nails. I thought I would sneak a quick post in whilst she was sleeping.

 I can't believe how horribly short my nails are at the moment. They keep breaking and tearing,in really weird ways aswell so I cant even save them. I'm thinking of wearing some false nails till they start growing but last time I did that my nails were so horrible after I took them off.

warning naked nails ahead 

 
 Horrible aren't they! Any ideas what I could do?
 
Also in the post today I finally received my package from Born Pretty. I've seen alot of blogs that use Bundle Monster or Konad and I thought I would it a try. I came across Born Pretty after reading someone's blog(I can't for the life of me remember whose blog it was) and decided to buy a set of 12 stamp plates with a stamper. I'll be doing a review of them hopefully tomorrow.
