Inspired by an inspired by... ;)

Hi loves,
Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend? :)

Today I'm kicking of the week with some leopard print, not my usual mini print either... Well, this is still small for you guys maybe but huge for me lol! I quite like it though, will be good to add in sometimes.

I decided to go with a mani I spotted this weekend by @tillynailart on IG who was inspired by @marnailart. How I originally missed @Marnailart posting this a good while ago, I will never know as I have followed her for ages now. :/ thanks IG. Never the less I found a new acct to follow in @tillynailart who's a fellow UK nail artist, woo!

For my recreation I used OPI Dim Sum Plum and Barry M Matt White. Along with paints for the art. 
I used square gold studs because I didn't have circle like the girls used. 

I absolutely love this mani and enjoyed wearing it, which I'm gutted I had to remove *sigh* lol.

Be sure to check the girls out :)

Shimmer Polish Jennifer | Glitter Gradient

Hi loves,
I hope you're all enjoying the start of the weekend! I know I am, these school runs are something to get used to doing for sure lol! 

Today I have a quick simple mani I done, I was going to post it yesterday but with the rememberance I felt to hold off until tonight. 
I decided to go with a glitter gradient using Barry M Matt White as the base, can I just throw this in... Anyone else just hate this white? It's just awful, I must get another and better white polish soon :(.
I thought I'd go with the glitter from the tips instead of the other way just because I actually don't think I have before.

Jennifer | a stunning glitter bomb full of orange, black, gold, pink, purple and blue glitters in various sizes and shapes. 
It's such a fun mix up and really added such character to the plain white base. I really loved the dash of black hexes thrown in, they are a joy to see when the appear amoungst the colours.

Isn't it lovely? I really loved doing the glitter gradient this way also so that is definitely on my 'to-do again' list!  ;)
