This was in honour of my littlest sister, who turned 18 at the weekend. We’re always fabulous (glitter) and we like pink. The pink is Ciaté’s “Cupcake Queen” and the glitter is from some random loose glitters.
It’s Web Expo Guildford week, therefore continuing with my “web event themed nails” (see Pubhack and dConstruct). I was so busy this week, these are quite messy, but still a hit. Changed my mind about what I wanted to do part way through. Had intended Xs but just didn’t have the time. Had some chevron shaped […]
I had trouble picking a theme this week, and then remembered I was going to see Ballyturk at the National Theatre. As a result, this week’s theme was Cillian Murphy‘s eye colour—blue. I layered some different blues with a sponge and finished with a layer or two of Barry M’s “Mermaid”.
I wanted to use a theme from something I liked from all the conferences I attended last week. I chose Gav Strange’s giant Gromit from the Gromit Unleashed event. It is easily one of the coolest things I have ever seen. He’s pink and gold with a spiky collar, and who doesn’t love Gromit? I have to […]
I was the lucky one who won a dConstruct ticket in SiteGround‘s draw. Since my glitter nails got decimated at Reasons To (yep, I’m all conference, all week!) I thought I’d change it up. The greeny effect is an interpretation of the website header, the orangey red on the calls to action and the “d” […]
Wishing I hadn’t tipped these. I do like the pink glitter polish, think it would look good worked into space nails.
I don’t think I’m alone when I say I’m absolutely gutted by the loss of Robin Williams. I might write more about it someday when it doesn’t make me crumple into a ball of sadness. I wanted to do some little things though. I didn’t have the colours for Mork’s rainbow dungaree things, so I based […]
I didn’t have much time post-birthday, so tried throwing my new glitter on some black. It really reminds me of the album art for Muse’s Resistance.
One day I will find the time to neaten the edges properly… Anyhow, I did the gradient in the usual way, and I love it. I made the mistake of using some older polishes, definitely need to stock up on my plain black and whites. Their age and gooey-ness made them harder to use in […]
(Messy photo, oops!) A couple of friends asked for a space nails tutorial. I never expected to be running a little nail workshop, but that’s what ended up happening! It was a lot of fun. I did have trouble getting my nails to come out spacey, but everyone else did very well under my instructions. […]
I chose ice cream as the theme for this week, despite the fact that I can’t actually have any. I didn’t have a proper vanilla colour, so my Neapolitan looks a bit like it has two strawberry flavoured sections. The sprinkles are a Barry M special effects polish.
