Nail Of The Day – Nails Inc. Baker Stret & Claire’s All Sorts

022016 Nails Inc Baker Street and Claire's All SortsHi there! Since I’ve done two nail posts since Monday, I decided this week would be nail week. 🙂 And I hope you’re enjoying nail week as much as I do!

So for this mani I dug out one of the more interesting glitter toppers I have. But let’s start from the beginning.

At first I painted my nails with Nails Inc.’s Baker Street (2 coats), a beautiful medium blue that really pops.

Then I painted on one coat of glitter topper. This one’s called All Sorts and it’s from Claire’s Accessories. This glitter topper features lime green, yellow and pink glitter in different shapes and sizes. Btw, I love the yellow squares the most!

I think this mani came out wonderful. The colours pop and it looks fun. If I were a rock star, this is the kind of mani I’d wear all the time! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies & Glitter

Rimmel Stormy Skies GlitterHi there! So, after two attempts (Blood Spatter Nails and Bats on a monster slime green background) I’ve already run out of nail ideas for Halloween. So I thought I’d do a happy mani.

I used Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies as my base colour and added lots of colourful matte glitter hexes (white, fuchsia, lime green) for a good mood effect.

I really like Stormy Skies. The colour is a creamy greyish blue / blueish grey and I think it’s a great autumn and winter shade. I also had to apply one coat only, so this polish is just perfect!

The matte glitter looks quite cute, I think. However, I think it would have looked better on an orange or a light yellow background. Well, there’s always a next time.

What do you think? 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rock Star Glitter

Rock Star GlitterHi there! At first let me apologise, I haven’t been up to much this week because I’ve got a chest infection and have coughing fits every couple of minutes. But I’m on the mend, so I’ll catch up with everyone’s posts and comments soon.

In the meantime, let me show you the cute mani I did last week. I knew I wanted glitter, but I didn’t know what base colour to chose so I opted for three different ones: mint green (Color Club), greyish blue (Revlon Colorstay 280 Blue Slate) and lilac (Fashionista).

The next step was choosing the right glitter. I picked a colourful glitter mix consisting of small, medium and large hex glitter in pink, yellow, orange, blue and black with lime green glitter stars. Honestly, is this the ultimate rock star glitter mix? Well, I  think it definitely is!
