 Interlocking dots cult nails tempest nevermore 4

For the white and black polishes I used Cult Nails Tempest and Nevermore. You will definitely be seeing a lot of Tempest and Nevermore this week! I can’t help but use them over and over again because they are both so opaque and have great formulas.

This was my first time trying this interlocking pattern!! It’s easy in concept, but I must admit I struggled a little with placement – especially the really important first step where the lines cross. It looks really nice from far away (far away meaning arm’s length, i.e. the usual distance my hand is from my eyeballs), but I feel like there are so many glaring flaws in these up close and personal macro photos :-/ Oh well, another excuse for me to practice using dots, huzzah!


 Kbshimmer you autumn know 01

The glitter accents are two coats of KBShimmer You Autumn Know over one of Barry M White.

I create the waterfall nail art (tutorial here) over a base of Rimmel Sunset Bronze. I used a nail art brush to apply the stripes using Barry M Gold Foil, Rimmel Purple Reign, Essie Jag-U-Are, China Glaze Dandy Lyin’ Around and Sally Hansen Sun Kissed.

This design is featured in my new nail art for beginners video! Its fun to do because you don’t need any nail art tools!

These nails are so unusual and creative!

Ob aa1fde multicolour aquarelle nails 3

I haven’t done any special nails yet for today so I have edited the watercolour nail art I’ve worn for the Olympia Beauty exhibition. I have used proper watercolours (aquarelle) colours, this is not the ‘nail polish & acetone’ technique.

Rainbow Waterfall

Day09RainbowNails 04

For Day 8’s nails I created a rainbow waterfall mani! It seems crazy that I got this far in to the challenge without doing a waterfall so while today is potentially the last day I will have the freedom to do one, it’s also an idea I’ve been holding on to for a while so it feels good to get it out and on to my nails! I used 20 different shades of nail polish in this nail art. Most of the time spent on this mani was just screwing and unscrewing the bottles!


Day25InspiredFashion 04

I used a base of 2 coats of Barry M White with a coat of Sally Hansen Dries Instantly. Once that was dry, I used striping tape to mark off all the lines, then used a nail art brush to paint on Sally Hansen Back to the Fuschia and Rimmel Grey Matter, creating the stripes.
