Ombre Style Cherry Blossoms

Hey everyoneeee :D
Hope your all doing well?
Today I have a real simple design for you all, I chose to use China Glaze- Electric Beat for the base :). With that I did a Ombre type cherry blossoms .. going light to dark with the tree & dark to light with the blossoms. i caught it as best I could but green dont like being caught on camera for me lol!!
To do this I just mixed white into both green & the black to create the closest shades :)
Hope you like them; please also check my facebook page for the OPI Spiderman Mini's Giveaway!

Till next time beautifuls! <3

My Own Anime Girl ;)

Hey everyone;
Today I have a little nail art for you, which went surprisingly better than I thoight it would. The one trouble I face, whether it be drawing, painting etc.. Is doing a face on shot! I can never get the eyes correct or inline with eachother, but for once im proud to say I did! Or atleast I think? Hehe.

For the base colour I used Color Club - Worth The Risque; then I mixed blue & white into a light & slightly darker shade; flesh tone for skin & a gorgeousss green for her eyes.. Had to do green eyes to match myself ;)

Hope you like her; & dont forget to like me on facebook and enter my comp for a chance to win OPI SPIDERMAN MINI SET!! :D

Love as ever; Lou xx

Been a little delayed sorry!! My oldest is currently going through the terrible two's .. Need I say more? Lool!
Well today I have a lovely bit of bling for you, I was going to do art but need to think up some nice creative ideas :(

I chose to do OPI - Dim Sum Plum topped with Color Club - Sugarplum Fairy! WOW! It looks good enough to eat :P
I also decided to add an out of focus pic so you can see this little beauty in action ;)

Nail Art .. Finally :D

Hey lovely's!
Today I thought id get the paints out & do some long overdue nail art woooo!!
Inspiration for this came from an app on the iPhone called 'Bag It!'
The little mini characters are funny & kinda cute so I thought why not eh ;)

For this I used; Ciate - Bon Bon & a thin layer of Nails Inc - Pont St! Then alot of different acrylic paints.. Youll see why there are far to many to list expecially with using this crappy app!!

Anyways I hope you like my art .. Some of the characters didnt come out how I would have liked and I totally forgot to finish the little orange juice .. My bad ;). Im not a pro though so its all good haha.
Hope your all well; Loveeee
Lou xx

Some Zoyaaaa Surf :)

Hey allll; I just have to say its soooo wierd using this app ... I miss my lappy :(. But onto more important bizzz, I finally recieved my Zoya Surf Collection EEEKKKK :D

I thought id have a play with my 2 favs of the lot & thats Zuza & Rory! Man they are lush! I was going to add a design but my youngest decided to wake up haha :(.
And enough of my blabbering... I found these two absolutly amazing to apply. 2 coats were perfect... Although I reckon 1 coat would have been ok.. I really love these & Im falling more in love with Zoya! Why have I avoided them for sooo long... Seriously what a doosh! LOL :D
Must say .. If you dont have these or have never tried Zoya .... Get them!! :D

Hope your all doing well; if you ever want to talk to me privatly or have any questions be sure you can inbox me :) click the contact part :)

Much Love; Lou xxx

Disaster! & a Review :)

Hey all; well as you can tell my post is as plain as it comes :( thats because my laptop charger is broken, so the only way im able to post is via this AWFUL app -.-!!
But maybe itll be ok seeing as a post is better than no posts? :'(

Well today I have a little review for you from the lovely Joan from Tip Top. Who kindly sent me 3 polishs :) I thought I would do them in seperate posts as im styling my review with nail art ... Tis good to be different right? ;)

The first one iv chosen is 'ASTRONAUT' - its a gorgeous deep blue shimmer (totally reminds me of the night sky lol). It applied like an absolute dream, 2 coats were perfect! & my gosh I loveee the brush!!

I decided to do mountains with this and I really think it goes well with the polish :).

Hope you all like it & im so sorry about this awfulness; there is literally no edit features on this app! I could cry :(

Striping tape BLAH lol ..

Evening Gorgeous Loves
Today I finally recieved my striping tape! Iv loved the look of all these funky designs the tape can create... But striping tape is far from easy to use!!! LOL
I just did a simple funk to test them out... Well! Let me just say ANNOYING isnt even close to how I felt when doing this! I tried many colours to achieve the look but failed miserably! But the worst thing could happen.. I had no nail polish remover left after I kept changing colours :(


So now I have to apologise for the slight messyness.. It really wasnt going as Id hoped it would LOL.

What I used -
Color Club - Raspberry Rush
Nails Inc - Baker Street
*Just to add here - The Color Club is actually a neon! But my camera didnt like it lol*

It was my first ever time using it .. That can be used as an exception right? ;)

Loveeeee
Lou xx

Im backkkkk .. With a little Animal Print too ;)

Hey everyone!!
First off I just have to say OMGGGG ! Iv been away for what seems foreverrrrr :( Just have a few personal & family problems so took a break! Plus went and visited my Mother-In-Law so has been one manic few days :O!
But Im bacccck :D
 Trying to get back into my nail art and hoping to be regularly posting everyday as soon as.. So please dont leaveeee me :D

Here is just a little animal print to luster over with the new Leighton Denny's I got from the Harpers Bazzar mag :)


What I used -
Leighton Denny - Plush Pink
Leighton Denny - Supermodel
Silver & Black Acrylic Paint

So one of my most loves is Leopard Print.. Im just an absolute sucker for it!!! But figured as I wanted to try both colours I managed to get out of the 3. Id do some Zebra Print to... Now for some untold reason.. Iv never mastered Zebra before, Iv tried and failed many times! But I think it came out alright on this mani YAY!

Also just too add in here.. Iv never tried Leighton Denny up until now.. But WOW the quality and coverage is absolutly amazing!!! I could have easily done 1 coat with these! Beauties .. Think il definatly be investing in more!


Hope you have all been ok :D
Iv Missed You Guysssss !
