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 ­čÖé

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.

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,

O.P.I Majestic Mustangs

Hi Beauties

I was playing on ‘Forza Horizon 2’ last night and as I was driving around to world looking for my next barn find a group of Ford Mustangs passed me, which got me thinking yet again about blog post ideas.

It was O.P.I’s ‘Mustang Collection’ (obv) sprung to mind, not only does the collection have an awesome theme and lovely packaging it also has some amazing colours to choose from.

The first polish that caught my eye in this collection was ‘Angel With A Lead Foot’ not only does the name describe me perfectly when it comes to driving (one reason I don’t) but it’s such a beautiful crisp clean shade, it looks as classy on the nails as it does on the car.

IMG_3772.JPG

‘Girls Love Ponies’ is a very vibrant bright pink shade, I couldn’t really imagine this looking good on any kind of Mustang, but it makes a pretty eye catching manicure.

IMG_3771.JPG

‘Queen Of The Road’ is the darkest shade of the collection, it is a beautiful moody black shade with a shimmery finish and silver micro glitter add a touch of elegance to your already stunningly moody mani.

IMG_3770.JPG

’50 Years Of Style’ to me is a shade that screams 1920s sophistication, it is a beautiful gold polish with a gloss finish, it would look perfect with a sleek white gown, for that o so sophisticated dinner party.

IMG_3769.JPG

‘Red Race’, although the name of this polish leaves little to the imagination, it is in fact a very vibrant red, it has an orange base which is what gives it such a bright tone, in my opinion this polish would look fantastic paired with a lovely golden tan or even on the high way, how says your manicure can’t match your Mustang.

IMG_3768.JPG

For me ‘the Sky’s The Limit’ is a bit of a dud, I’m not that keen on blue polishes as some of you may know, but this ocean, sky blue shade is not one that I would associate with a powerful american muscle car, or a horse for that matter, this shade belongs on a Citroen or even a Toyota not on a Ford Mustang and nowhere near my nails.

I hope you all enjoyed reading this post beauties and there’s plenty more to come,

‘Holiday Wishes’ From Sinful Colors

Hi Beauties

As many of you know Revlon has always been my favourite nail polish brand, but for me Revlon is sometimes a little too expensive, polishes start at ┬ú6.00 and can sell for as high as ┬ú10.00 a bottle. When my budget can’t stretch to Revlon’s prices I can still get my polish fix, from none other than Sinful Colors, they have a fantastic formula, a huge array of shades to choose from and they only retail for ┬ú1.99 a bottle and I think you’ll agree that’s an absolute bargain.

Since Christmas is just around the corner Sinful Colors have bought out there ‘Holiday Wishes’ collection, which features stunning blue and gold based polishes that are perfect for the festive season.

‘All About You’ is a beautiful copper based gold glitter that will look amazing, adding sparkle to any outfit. The richer hues of red toned copper make this polish stunning for an evening get together.

IMG_3633.JPG

‘Endless Blue’ is quite a bold cobalt blue shade, that in my opinion has a very casual feel to it, this polish would be perfect to wear when lounging around the house on Boxing Day watching reruns of old movies and blogging or vlogging about what you got for Christmas 2014.

IMG_3634.JPG

‘Ice Blue’ is by far my favourite shade in this collection, it is a deep blue base with flecks of silver micro glitter which remind my of a snowy night sky in Christmas Eve, Devine.

IMG_3635.JPG

‘Ice Dream’ seems to me to be the more casual counterpart to ‘Ice Blue’ it is still blue based with silver glitter but this time the blue is lighter, it reminds me somewhat of melting icicles.

IMG_3636.JPG

‘Cinderella’ is a sky blue, white based shade that is featured in this collection, it is one that I have had for nearly two years so it’s not exactly a new addition to the Sinful Colours range, however I can see why they included it, it’s a stunning shade that in my opinion is a winter must have.

IMG_3637.JPG

‘Gilded’ is a deep blue based shade again with sliver micro glitter, it is not as dark as ‘Ice Blue’ yet not as light as ‘Ice Dream’, it is infact the perfect balance between the two and brings to mind the Christmas classic The Snowman, it just has that kinda feel to it.

IMG_3638.JPG

Finally ”Gold Medal’ is a solid gold shade with somewhat of a metallic shimmer to it, it is in my opinion the most disappointing of this collection, although it is a pretty colour it just doesn’t feel very festive to me.
