Art Deco Nails

Hi Beauties

How are you all?

I’m feeling slightly better myself today, not as achy or dizzy, plus me and a friend have started talking again after nearly a month. I’m in work later so I’ve got a feeling that today will be s good day :), and I hope yours is too.

Now as you may or may not know I’m obsessed with New York, I’d love to go one day it’d be a dream come true, I’d love to see the Chrysler Building that would be amazing.

The Chrysler Building is done in an Art Deco style which I love so I thought I’d share some of my fave Art Deco nail art with you.

The first mani is done is shades of brown and gold which look so beautiful together, the brown kind of reminds me of those old photographs from the 1930’s. This design is simply beautiful.

Thank you sonailicious for the lovely nail art.

To me the next mani totally reminds me of the movie ‘The Great Gatsby’, the geometric shapes coupled with the gold and black colour scheme screams 1920’s America. Absolutely perfect.

A big thank you to the The Fashion Brewery for making such stunning nail art.

Again this beautiful manicure has the black and gold colour scheme, but instead of 1920’s America, this piece brings to mind Ancient Egypt, not only do the lines remind me of pyramids but in the design on the ring finger, I see a pharaoh wearing a crown, cute 🙂

I found pics of this lovely design on pintrest .

The next piece of nail art, I feel it a very modern take on an Art Deco design. This piece still has the geometric patterns but the Tiffany blue and white colour scheme are what give this design a lovely modern edge.

A big thank you to beautylish for the lovely nail art.

So I’m sorry this post was quite short Beauties, but I’m quite particular when it comes to anything Art Deco. Thanks for reading and I’ll post again soon.

Today’s mani

Hi Beauties

After much debate I decided to go for ‘Fiji’ which was so disappointing, it’s very very sheer, takes ages to dry and smells terrible, but thanks everyone for the feedback it really means a lot to me.

Today I redid my nails with MUA’s ‘Bright Pink’ after the Sinful Colors mishap, I’m hoping it’s just a bad batch because I really do like the colour. On the other hand ‘Bright Pink’ is very pigmented, opaque in one coat and is very long wearing.

Love it, a big thanks to Sarah for the fantastic pic of one of my fave polishes.

Essie: Sure Shot or Jamaica Me Crazy

Hi Beauties

I have another decision to make, I’m building up my nail polish collection and was wondering which Essie polish I should pick this time, last time I went for Essie’s ‘Boom Boom Room’ as it got the most votes, so thanks for helping me choose I couldn’t have done it without you all.

This time the choice is between two pinky plum toned shades:

As you can see these colours are very close and very pretty, Please help me choose.

Orly Smoke Collection

Hi Beauties

I hope your pleased with last nights ‘One lovely blog award’ nominations, they were very hard nominations to make.

This morning I was browsing tumblr and I came across a lovely polish by Orly that was from the ‘Smoky Collection’, so i wanted to give you my throughs on the collection as a whole.

The first is ‘Smoked Out’ the name is quite deceiving as it brings to mind a black or grey toned polish, but ‘Smoked Out’ Is something else altogether, it is the most stunning deep green I have ever seen, in my opinion it’s still second to Revlon’s ‘Rain Forest’ but it is still an amazing colour, the metallic micro glitters give it a very mysterious look, like something out of a fairy tale.

IMG_3823.JPG

‘Highlight’ is a pale grey shade that is perfect for the ultimate nude manicure, but in other respects it is a very basic shade, one to be worn with jeans, a T-shirt and your converse.

IMG_3824.JPG

‘Darkest Shadow’ is another stunning polish, it has a deep base with copper and red glitters running throughout it. This polish is definitely different, to me this is the perfect shade for bonfire night it reminds me of the blazing orange bonfire against the smoky black night sky, love it.

IMG_3825.JPG

Orly’s ‘Brush It On’ is to me a shade that is perfect for Halloween, ‘Brush It On’ is the perfect fall burnt orange shade it has a stunning orange base with burnt orange and silver glitter within it. I did a post on burnt autunm oranges with this polish would fit perfectly into, it looks like I’ve found my go to orange polish for fall 2015.

IMG_3826-0.JPG

‘Edgy’ is again a pretty polish that couldn’t be better suited to the colder months, it has beautiful bronze and silver glitters that sit so perfectly on a deep brown toned base, ‘Edgy’ is perfect for both autumn and winter and for some reason reminds me of a snow covered wood.

IMG_3827.JPG

‘Blend’ is a brown based purple shade, again this is one that reminds me of bonfire night but this time of the morning after when fog hangs thick in the air and everything appears to be covered in a faint purple haze, this is such a basic polish yet it is beautiful in its own right.

Thanks for reading Beauties I hope you enjoyed this post, I know I enjoyed writing it the ‘Smoke Collection’ has to be one of my all time favourites from Orly, come back soon for more,
