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: 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?

17 Lasting Fix Nail Polish

I know I promised some posts other than nail posts but here’s another one!  This is another polish I got in Boots last week.  I’ve been looking for a nice yellow for a while now and have finally found one….

It’s on the gold side of yellow with a bit of shimmer and actually goes with my skin tone unlike other brighter yellow polishes I’ve tried.  The formula is good and it’s easy to apply but you definitely need at least two coats or it looks a bit patchy.  I really love how summery this colour is!  What do you think?
