Pastel and Studs

I got this new ChiChi nail polish and was wondering how I could use it?

So I ended it pairing it with some of my favourite pastel shades...

Grey: ChiChi - Just Chillaxin
Turquoise: Australis - Aqua
Purple: Rimmel - Marshmallow Heaven
Yellow: Face of Australia - Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy
Pink: ChiChi - Blonde Ambition
Blue: Essence - Absolutely Blue

I painted each finger a different colour and then used masking tape to create a line down the middle and painted the one half with the greyish colour.

I then topped it with a silver square studs from Born Pretty.

What do you think?

Cartoon Nails!

I have seen many cartoon inspired manicures out there so I thought I would have a go at my own. :D

 I think they came out AWESOME!!!!

I started by painting each finger a different colour. Then using a thin paintbrush I painted a thin black line around the edge and using a dotting tool I created the white 'shine' marks.
To top it all off I used Rimmel - Matte Finish.

All the shades I used were from Bc&Co. You can pick these up from KMart for $2. They are pretty amazing. :)
Pink: Shade 9
Orange: Shade 13
Purple: Shade 6
Yellow: Shade 10
Green: Shade 16

White: Sally Hansen - White On
Black: Sally Hansen - Black Out

I super dooper love these! And can't wait to have another go.

Liebster Blog Award!!

I can not believe it! The lovely Anita from NailsBy Anita nominated me for a Liebster Award! 
So what is a Liebster Blog Award... 

...well it is for blogs which has less than 200 followers. Apparently  Liebster is German for “beloved” and a blog nominated for this award is “worth watching”. 

The rules are:

1. Once you have received a nomination make sure you post this badge somewhere on your blog.

2. Each nominator will have a set of questions for you to answer. Usually about information you have not yet talked about on your blog, therefore giving your followers (and new followers) get to know a little bit more about you. 

3. Nominate 10 blogs will less then 200 followers, who you think deserves this award! 

4. Make sure you let them know! 

5. No tag backs. 

My Answers!!

Ok so here are the answers to Anita's questions...

1. How long have you been painting your nails?
Ok, so I have been painting my nails since I was a teenager. I wasn't allowed to paint my nails growing up so when I was allowed I didn't really stop. I used to take bottles of nail polish to my friends house so I could paint them there while we watch a movie or TV. Haha! I have been doing nail art for just over a year. 

2. If you could paint a celebrity's nails, who would they be? 
I would LOVE to paint Zooey Deschanel. Only because she would let me do some crazy nail art design on them. 

3. What is your worst nightmare?
Hrmmmm, falling over and breaking my teeth OR a fish tank breaking and I am surrounded by flapping fish. Eeeek!    ...weird huh?

4. Besides nail art, what else do you enjoy doing? 
I love reading, even though I haven't done enough this year. 

5. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years I will be 31. Hopefully I will be the owner of my own home, a stable job and LOTS more travelling.

NOW I get to pick my 10 Liebster Blog here they are!

1. Jemma from London Varnish 
2. Our Painted World
3. Erin from Hand-y Feats and other Treats
4. Polish All the Nails 
5. Chiara from passion for nails
6. Lacqueerisa
7. Simple Nails
8. Bathelen from Bethelen's Nails 
9. Margriet from 365 days of nail art
10. Melody from The Manicured Amateur

My questions:

- Why did you decided to create a blog??

- What is something you LOVE doing (besides nail art)?

- When did you start doing nail art?

- What was your last dream about?

- What is something you CAN NOT live without and why?

There you go! All done!
Thanks again...

Red Flocking

A couple of weeks ago I was sent LOTS of awesome Chi Chi Cosmetic. Today I thought I would have a try at one of the flocking nail polishes.

How pretty is this colour? I LOVE it! I think I am going to have to do a 'Elmo' inspired nail art soon...

Peach Triangles

Here is another on of my scarf inspired nail arts.

I got this really pretty scarf from Valley Girl last month and thought it would make really good inspiration for a nail design.
I used the the aztec theme and the colours to come up with my own design.

I started off with a white base and using a thin paintbrush, I painted on the peach triangles and the black stripes. I think they came out pretty good (despite the slightly blurry photos).

Peach: BYS - Pretty as a Peach
White: Sally Hansen - White On 
Black: BC&Co. - Shade 11

Pretty Peach

Peach is one of my favourite colours... and I can not get enough of using it in my nail art. Can you??

 I thought I would pair it up with some grey and silver and make some really cool geometric tips with it.

What do you think?

Peach: BYS - Pretty as a Peach
Grey: Maybelline - Impeccable Greys
Silver: Barry M - Foil

This is probably one of the easiest designs I have ever done and it looks amazing.

Have a play with it, use different colours and shapes. Let me know how you go? OR give me some suggestions on what I can do with it?

Enjoy! xx

Green Patterns

The one thing I love more than nail polish, is scarves. And a few months ago I was given this beautiful scarf from a friend. It is so pretty, with the patterns of emerald green, maroon and beige.

The other day when I was looking for inspiration I came across this scarf and decided to use it for this manicure. 

Green: Barry M - Watermelon
Turquoise: Australis - Aqua
Beige: Avon - Perfectly Flesh 
Maroon: Rimmel - Reality Chic

The design came out really well.

Silver Half Moons

Here are simple half moons you guys can do at home.

Black: Bc&Co - Shade 11
Silver: Cate Ruby - Metal mix
Silver Glitter

I started of with a few coats of the black and then topped it with Rimmel - Matte Finish.

I then used the silver glitter polish to paint a half moon and topped it with some glitter (just to and a bit more sparkle), which I picked it up from the $2 dollar shop.

Simple! :)
