Perfect Pin Stripe.

I’ve tried free handing pin stripes so many times, and it just comes out awful. I do not have a steady hand at all when it comes to it, so this is great for me. Try it out, it’s so easy to do and it looks great. I wore these out last night and got so many compliments.

What you’ll need:

- Two colours of your choice and a top coat

- Striping tape

- Scissors


What you need to do:

- Paint your base coat (one or two coats) 

- Let it dry for at least a good hour or two. 

- Start applying the striping tape. 

- Once you’ve finished with the striping tape, paint over it all in your second colour of choice. Lighter colours usually take two coats.

- Once the second coat is dry, remove the striping tape. 

- Apply top coat, and your done.

Well, I haven’t done any nail art for a long long time. So here’s a quick little Jack Skellington set I’ve done just to get me back into it. I’ve seen so many amazing ones out there this one seems so inadequate.

Gradient nail tutorial!

What you will need:

- Coloured base coat

- Another colour, that works well with the base

- Clear top coat

- Bath sponge

- Scrap paper/mixing pallet

1. Paint your base coat. I find two thin layers works well. 

2. Wait about half an hour in between both coats, as you don’t want your colours mixing. 

3. Drop some polish onto the paper, and dip a corner of your sponge into the polish. 

4. Dab off excess polish. 

5. Create the gradient by starting a thicker layer at the top of the nail, then dap thinner and lighter working your way to about three quarters down the nail. 

6. Wait for the colour to dry.

7. Finally add one or two top coats of clear top coat. 


There you have it, a real simple and easy effect to create. It looks really cool. It’ll take a few times to perfect, and getting colours right. I’m not 100% keen on these two colours, but I’m going out and these colours match my outfit :) Enjoy!!

Just an instagram photo, but here’s some nails I’ve been working on recently.

(stuck on with bluetac which is why they look odd, will have a better photo up soon.)

I couldn’t get a decent photo of these nails, I found it hard to pick up the glitter.

Black and gold!

I’ve seen a few nails spread all over the internet with a similar triangle design, so I thought I’d try it out for myself. Addicted to this silver nail polish.
