Oui Oui

So I don't usually like doing the classic french maincure, so I trolled tumblr for a bit and put my own twist on it

I used a random nude colour from some cheap set, Rimmel 60 sec Sunrise and Barry M Yellow as well as my trust ebay pen
I actually like how sophisticated they looked, they'd be great for work or school and you can do all kinds of designs.

Orange and turquoise

So these are my current nails, Barry M orange and China glaze Turned up Turquoise (neon)

Words cannot describe how much I love this combo! The contrast between colours is great, I dunno about you guys but I love me a bit of clashing ;P

It's been a while since I posted so I thought i'd make sure it was something different, rainbowwwww with leopard print of course.
The rainbow stripes were my left hand and the plain was the right, this took soo sooo long to do, I decided not to use the sponging technique and just sort of painted a line, waited for it to dry painted another, etc.
This is the first time a stranger complimented my nails! at the till in boots :D 
All polishes are Barry M, and the print with my trusty ebay nail pen

China Glaze!

So I found out my local Sally's is stocking China glaze, OPI and some other brand I've never heard of,
They have an offer on China glaze, buy one get one half price so I spent about half an hour choosing two, here's what I got.

Frostbite and Turned up turquoise (neon) 

I definetly need to get the rest of the neons, It was so hard to choose between Coconut kiss and a neon pink i can't remember the name of.
Also anyone else seeing Models Own Pro and Orly being stocked at boots? 
Love love love these polishes, definetly buying some more!

These were my 'Interveiw' nails, for an interveiw at Staffordshire university, to study games design btw,  i used ELF 'Golden Goddess' and Barry M 'Silver Cascade'

It was a pain in the arse to remove, but I got good coverage in 2 coats with Barry M, Sadly ELF  is more sheer so was like 4 coats, I might try it over a gold polish instead.

For this weeks nails, I've gone with ELF Purple dream and Barry M Nail effects, Not too sure about Nail effects, I find it quite hit and miss, I was planning to do an accent finger  but I liked how it came out on my ring finger so did the whole hand.

I might be away for a bit soon, I have my Final major project to focus on deadlines a comin'

Been on tumblr for nail inspiration, gotta try sponging and get a hold of some OPI and China Glaze from Sallys ;D

Just a quick and kinda late one, Pandas! It was a toss up between pandas and owls last night and I decided pandas to make a change :P
Created with ELF mint cream, unknown white and black ebay pen :) 
really simple but i still managed to forget that pandas have black ears not white, and had to go over it lol
