NOTW: Alley Attitude


Colours used:
No7 Stand Back
Maybelline Street Artist “Alley Attitude” Top Coat (I love the effect of this!)


NOTW: Gradient Take 2

This gradient worked so much better than the one I tried last week!  I much prefer the colours and I managed to get the gradient a lot smoother.  This time I actually used three colours: No7 Stand Back as the base with Rimmel Green With Envy and No7 Dollar to make the gradient.  What do you think?I’m now off to try and decide how to do my nails for my friends wedding tomorrow (she’s been planning the big day for over a year now and it’s really exciting that it’s finally here!).  I had ordered Nubar 2010 to wear for the wedding but it hasn’t arrived in time which is really annoying!  If you have any suggestions please let me know – I’ll be wearing a navy bridesmaids dress with nude heels.


NOTW: Stand Back

I can’t believe it’s been nearly a week since my last post – I can’t wait to have my exams over with! I’ve got a bit behind with my Nails of the Week posts…. I actually wore this a few weeks ago now and was in a rush when I painted my nails so excuse the messiness!  The blue is No7 Stand Back which is a bright matte blue but I topped it with a coat of a really, really old Nails Inc polish I have to give it a bit of shimmer.


NOTW: Patterns

When I painted my nails last week I was just experimenting really but I quite liked the end result so decided to keep it for a few days.  I used four colours; a yellow from 17, Stand Back from the Stay Perfect No7 range and Purple Dream and Dark Purple Glitter from elf.

Which is your favourite design?


NOTW: Leopard Print

I realise that I’m pretty late to the leopard print bandwagon but here’s my attempt just the same!  I’m not entirely sure I like the colour combination but I’m quite impressed that I managed to get the spots looking as neat as they do, although next time I’d like to get the spots a little smaller.  My left hand isn’t as neat as the right (I’m left handed!) but I think with practice I’ll get better……

If you’re interested, the colour I’ve used are Nail Inc Warwick Avenue for the base with Miners Plum and No7 Stay Perfect Stand Back for the spots.

It seems like recently I’ve mainly been posting NOTWs so I’ll do my best to find the time to get some more interesting posts written up – who’d have thought I’d have so much work to do in my final year!!!!
