Remembrance Poppies

Happy Mani Monday.

Today I have remembrance day nails to share. This week, it is all about remembering the day the first world war ended. We celebrate it on November 11th (Saturday). Therefore this week I have 2 poppy manis.

Products
Base: OPI Check out the Old Geysirs, from the OPI Iceland Collection.
Poppies: MoYou London Flower Power plate 4, China Glaze Liquid Leather, a red & a dark red sparkly Cosmetic Arts polishs & Zoya Honor.

I’ve created another tutorial video that I will share shortly. I reverse stamped the image using a small brush to colour in the stamp and I put clear over top so I could pick the image up when it was dry.

Thank you everyone for stopping by. I hope you all have a wonderful week! I will post links to my video shortly.

Brain & Brain

Good Morning & Happy Halloween!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I’m guessing everyone celebrated Halloween on Saturday, I did at least. This year I went as a box of wine and my BF went as a beer keg. We both actually dispensed booze! Check them out HERE.

Today I have my last Halloween themed mani. I’ve ~loosely~based it off a phrase from the original Star Trek Series. The episode is called ‘Spock’s Brain’. My dad and I often quote ‘Brain and brain! What is brain’. So I thought it would be cool to do a brain mani.

Products used:
Base: OPI 4 in the Morning, Barielle Big Apple Red, Color Club Tangerine Scream and Electro Candy.
Brains: China Glaze White on White & MoYou London Festive plate 44

I started off with the red, orange, pink and black polishes. I dabbed them on a large stamped head, stamped the head once on my silicone mat then dabbed on my nails. It turned out wonderful but boy oh boy there was a mess around my cuticles.

I used the white polish to stamp the brains.

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I know I’m still tired today from all the fun this weekend. Have a great week!

My First Nail Video! 📹

Happy Thursday Everyone!

I’m super excited for today’s post because I’ve been working on creating nail videos and today I’m going to share my first one! I love creating roses and it was one of the first things I tried to create when I started out blogging so I thought it apt to be my first video tutorial.

But first, a few photos.

Products Used:
Base: KBShimmer Fax of Life
Roses: Barielle Big Apple Red & Fifth Avenue Boutique, Color Club Wild Cactus & China Glaze White on White

My video tutorial can be found on Instagram, Facebook and Google+ because the file is too large to post to my blog. I’ve tried to make it a smaller file but the results would take away from the video. I’ll add the links here to the video when I post it.

I’m super excited and nervous about posting my firs nail video. I’d like to do more. I hope everyone will have a positive reaction towards it. The whole video was 2 mins but I’ve sped it up so it only is about 27 seconds.

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope you enjoy my video!
