Today’s Mani: English Rose

Hi Beauties

First of all I’d like to thank all of you for the lovely likes and comments on my post ‘Starting YouTube’, I still do have research to do and maybe a camera to buying depending on how well my iPhone holds up, if all goes well I’m hoping to start in May. 🙂

So back to today’s post…

My mani for today or more like this week is is another polish from Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Collection. The polish is ‘English Rose’ and is another pink shade. But unlike ‘Pink Zanfendel’ it has a red undertone and a very pretty vintage look.

 

I do want to start  wearing more orange and coral shades but ‘English Rose’ was the only Rummel Lasting Finish formula I could find whilst rumaging around in my polish collection. 

I specifically chose this line of polish because it stays on literally forever, and work is about to get a little full on for me so I want havd as much free time hanse why I’m putting off YouTube until May. 

 

Please excuse my shabby nails again I keep breaking them :(.

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.

Halloween Nails: scary Skulls

Hi Beauties

I’m feeling tired and I’ve had a terrible week, I’m hoping your all feeling a lot better than I am right now.

Enough of my moaning, let’s get to what you really want to see, halloween nail art.

I’ve always loved skulls and I love them even more now I know they can make amazing nail art.

I love all of these, number three has to be a face of mine purely because the purple-y blue background really makes the skulls pop. The art work and attention to detail in number seven is simply amazing. Which are your faves and why?

They’ll be more halloween themed nail art coming this way soon.

Overcast Autumn Oxblood’s

Hi Beauties

I’m in the mood to post today, since winter is on it’s way, or for some parts of the country it’s already here, I thought I’d post about one of fall 2014’s biggest nail polish trends, ox blood nails. A deep ox blood manicure
will always wins place in my good books, so here are a few of my fave ox blood polishes.

The first Is ‘Boredoux’ by Essie, it’s a deep red tone, it’s defiantly one of my faves, it’s not so dark that it looks black, I love the fact that the berry red undertone can still be seen on the nail.

IMG_3238.JPG

The second polish to feature in this post I’d China Glaze’s ‘Call Of The Wild, compared to Essie’s ‘Boredoux’ ‘Call Of The Wild’ is a lot lighter in shade, in my opinion it has more of a brown undertone and would make the perfect autumn manicure.

IMG_3238-0.JPG

The next polish Is ‘China Town’ from Nars, now I’ve never tried a Nars polish so I’m afraid I cannot comment on the quality of the polish itself, but the colour is stunning it’s more of a berry red tone as opposed to an oxblood shade but never the less it is still a very pretty color.

IMG_3239.JPG

L’oreal’s ‘Haute Couture Red’ looks to be a beautiful copper toned oxblood shade, however in the past I have had polishes from L’oreal and let’s just say the formula it’s exactly the best, in my experiences they were gloppy or streaky and took a very long time to dry. Don’t get my wrong I adore the colour of this polish it is truly a stunning fall shade, it’s just a pity about the formula.

IMG_3240.JPG

As many of you know Revlon’s ‘Vixen’ has featured in quite a few of my posts , and it’s about to feature In another. I have been lusting after ‘Vixen’ for the longest time but can never get hold of it, it’s always sold out, which is very disappointing it is such a beautiful almost plum based oxblood shade. In my books it’s a definite must have for any nail polish addict and when I finally do manage to purchase it, ‘Vixen’ will earn it’s rightful place in my collection.

IMG_3241.JPG

Zoya’s ‘Sam’ is a very pretty wine toned oxblood shade, it looks a lot darker on the nails than it appears I’m the bottle, which for some people be a good thing but for me it’s a negative because I adore the shade as it is in the bottle it’s beautifully unique. But regardless of the difference, ‘Sam’ is still a very beautiful colour on or off the nails.

IMG_3243.JPG

And finally, ‘Flirt’ by Sally Hansen is a very like Revlon’s ‘Vixen’ in the sense that it is a plum based oxblood shade as apprised to a red or black based shade. In my opinion this colour would look stunning at a Halloween party or even as a more Christmassy manicure colour, with some silver or gold accents to really make it pop. I think this is another polish for my ever growing collection.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post beauties, they’ll be a more coming this way within the next couple of days, but until next time,

Barry M: Silk Collection- Pastels

Hi Beauties

I’m bored and it’s cold and rainy outside :(, but regardless of how horribly cold and wet it gets know that my beauties will always be here to cheer me up.

Since I can’t be bothered to leave the ball of blankets on the sofa that I have become a part of I thought if browse the web for yes you guessed it… More nail polish. I came across Barry M’s Silk collection and thought why not post about their perfect pastelness.

The first is ‘Blossom’ it’s a light pink shade and the only one of this collection I purchased it last year and have only worn it a few times, but I still love it and can’t wait for next spring so ‘Blossom’ can be worn again.

IMG_3216.JPG

‘Pearl’ is a very beautiful yet classic milky white shade. Which is in my opinion the only polish in the Silk collection that you can wear all year round, it’s very versatile and the off white shade and pearly silk finish means it will add a touch of class to any outfit.

IMG_3217.JPG

‘Truffle’ is a champagne browny glider shade it looks lovely in the bottle but when I compared it to my skin tone it made me look very washed out, this is a polish that would look lovely on a more olive skin tone.

IMG_3218.JPG

‘Meadow’ is a lovely spring light green shade, that automatically makes the ‘sopranos’ spring to mind. I really do love this shade it is subtle enough that you could wear it to the office yet it still packs enough of a punch that it makes a lovely spring and summer mani.

IMG_3219.PNG

Ad many of you know I’m not really a blue polish person, ‘Mist’ from the Silk collection doesn’t really do much for me. I’m really not a fan of the powder blue shade and the silk finish sheers out the overall colour, not a fave of mine but it would still make a lovely mani for someone who’s more into blues than I am.

IMG_3220.JPG

And lastly Is ‘Heather’ not only does this polish have a pretty name but it also has the colour to match, it’s a stunning lilac shade which for me gives off a real vintage vibe, I can’t wait to add ‘Heather’ to my collection.

IMG_3221.JPG

I hope you all enjoyed this post, I’ll be posting agin soon about Barry M’s Silk collection, but this time about their new fall silk collection, there’s some lovely colours but I guess you’ll just have to wait and see.

Love, Hugs And Glossy Kisses,
