Pictures aren’t of the best quality, but I’m going to do a review on these two products. 

I’m in the middle of moving house, and everything is packed away, however I decided to treat myself to three new colours, and the hard as nails by Sally Hansen. I left my job and now my nails are looking fabulous!! So I decided to try these out on my natural new improved nails, as there’s no reason to use fake nails any more. I’m so skeptical, and really critical of nail varnishes. I don’t buy nail varnishes over £4, so they’re never the best quality, and probably why I’ve never been very impressed before. I decided to buy the hard as nails as I want to keep my natural nails as long and nice as possible, and so far it’s amazing. I used it as a base coat, then used two coats of the black sparkle, and then another coat of the hardener. I don’t think it’s meant for a top coat, and if you were using it over a design it would probably smudge, but for this it has worked wonders!! I can not express enough how bloody brilliant these two are. The glitter is so difficult to take off with nail varnish remover, you need to scrub it off, but that’s a good point in my eyes. It hasn’t chipped, it hasn’t snagged, it hasn’t dented, it’s just been absolutely fantastic. It’s slightly faded at the edges, but that’s just wear. It’s lasting a hell of a lot better then my shellac, my shellac was a very unenjoyable experience. I can’t wait to take it all off and reapply it, as I just did a quick messy job of it. I didn’t think it would last long at all.

Honestly, I can’t rave about this combo more! I suggest you go buy these and try them out for yourself. The black glitter is just perfect any ways, in love.

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.

So these were for a customer. Possibly the hardest nails I’ve done up to date, I don’t even know why, I just found them really stressful. Possibly because if my customer likes them, I could get a lot of business from them. Any ways, they were created with moustache nail transfers, then the two end nails are half a moustache each, and you put them together, above your lips to create a moustache for yourself.

Christian Louboutin nails. Easy to do, and super sexy!

Excuse my natural nails!

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.

I absolutely love dogs, so I wanted to do a nails linked to dogs. Obviously as I’m still learning and trying to perfect my lines and get neater, I thought I would try something easy out to start with. I still found this quite difficult, as you can probably see. Definitely need to practise not having shaky hands.

I tried marbling out a month or so ago. Very time consuming but definitely creates an amazing effect. This is something I will definitely be trying out again.
I will also put clearer photos, and a list of products/tools up next time.

Every day nails. 
I love the crackle black effect, it instantly makes anything look cool. I’ve tried the crackle black with lots of colours, and I feel it works best with silver. I decided to create something that would stand out, but was also easy to do. These nails definitely stand out.
