NOTW: Summer Gradient

I wanted to try a more summery theme this week so went with a yellow/orange gradient. After trying gradients a few times, I’ve realised that I’m not very good at them, so I used my Nubar Polka Dot to draw attention away from how rubbish the actual gradient was! The colours I used were Mellow…

NOTW: Nail Jewellery Combo

A few months ago I wore the Nail Inc Nail Jewellery over Ciaté Sand Dune to a friend’s wedding.  I really liked the combination but decided to try something a little different this time so layered the Nail Jewellery over Ciaté Oil Slick.  Usually the Oil Slick changes from green to gold depending on the…

NOTW: Gold Stamping

For all of the stamping designs I have tried so far I have used the special black Konad polish.  I really wanted to try out a different colour and thought my gold polish from Ciaté would be pigmented enough to stand out.  I was wrong!  The design looks really faded so I was quite disappointed…

NOTW: Glitter Gradient

I really love this design!  I used Ciaté Angel Wings as the base and then Nails Inc Nail Jewellery to create the gradient.  I wish I’d managed to take photos in daylight as these photos could have looked so much better!  

NOTW: Christmas Sparkles

To be honest, the only thing remotely Christmassy about this nail design is the glitter!  I started off with a layer of Rimmel Green With Envy and then sponged some Ciaté Angel Wings over it.  I was going for an icy effect but was a bit heavy handed with the Angel Wings so it didn’t…

NOTW: Favourites

Last week I decided to go with something simple and just used my two favourite polishes of the moment – Sand Dune by Ciaté and Milan by No7.  They both go on so smoothly and don’t really show up chips too much.  I think they go really well together, what do you think?  

NOTW: Wedding Nails

Here’s how I wore my nails at my friends wedding last weekend.  I had ordered Nubar 2010 from Amazon but unfortunately it didn’t arrive on time (took them a week to tell me that it was damaged in the post and they didn’t have a replacement to send – so annoying!) so I had to…

NOTW: Colour Blocks

For the first time in ages, this week I attempted some sort of nail art!  I went with a simple design – I’ve done a similar one before so was pretty sure it would work out.  I’ve used Rimmel Green With Envy and Ciaté Sand Dune.  I really like these two colours together and I…

NOTW: Showgirl

My first NOTW since getting back from Thailand and I had to cut my nails really short after biting them to death on the flight home – I’m quite a nervous flier!!!  I’m wearing yet another Ciaté polish, this one is called Showgirl.  Out of all of the Ciaté polishes I’ve tried over the past…

NOTW: Sand Dune

Can you believe that this is the very first gold nail polish I’ve ever owned?!  Sand Dune from Ciaté is the perfect gold colour, not too yellow and with plenty of shimmer.  I love it!
