NOTW: Pink & Patterned

This is a design I did a few weeks ago. I used Models Own Blush Pink topped with Indian Ocean for a bit of shine, and then stamped my pattern on top. It was nice and quick to do and I loved the result!NOTW: Pink & Patterned NOTW: Pink & Patterned

NOTW: Textured Pastels

I love using flocking powder to give my nails an unusual effect. It also makes it quite a lot quicker to do my nails as I don’t have to wait for nail polish to fully dry. However, I have been finding that the lighter colour powders look a lot messier around the edges of my nails than the darker ones. I love the colour on my nails this week but wish they were a bit tidier!NOTW - Pastel flocking powder NOTW - Pastel flocking powder

NOTW: Kiss Nail Wraps

This was my first time using nail wraps. I love the jeweled design of these wraps from Kiss but I really struggled to use them! I must have really small nails as it took me ages to cut the strips to the right width and then trim them to the right length. They looked a bit of a mess up close – I found it impossible to cut them into the shape I wanted! Kiss Nail Wraps Kiss Nail WrapsIt must have taken me an hour to do but the packet says “On in minutes”. The packet also said that they should last up to 10 days but unfortunately mine lasted less than a day. That was probably due to how badly I applied them though, so I am going to have another go with the second design in the packet soon! If you want to try these nail wraps you can get them from Asda for £5.98.

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 Yellow from 17 as the base, Showgirl by Ciaté for the middle bit and then Models Own Fluro Orange (which I picked up recently from Littlewoods) on the tips.Summer gradient nail art Summer gradient nail art

NOTW: Zebra

I really liked this design but didn’t manage to get any good photos – they all look a little fuzzy and I’m not sure why!  I used black flocking powder on some nails to break up the pattern.  What do you think?Zebra nails Zebra nails
