NOTD: Bright Brick Tart

I love an accent nail. I love pastels that are bright at the same time. I love spicing up a simple mani!

Natural light

Direct sun light

Supersoaker nails

WHOOP WHOOP! Kings of Leon have released a new single. So obviously I *had* to celebrate with a mani =) I did this real quickly, as in, within one minute. I don't even remember why I was in such a hurry, hmm.

This is the cover for the single (do singles even have covers? Or should I say 'this is the illustration your MP3 player will display'?):

Go buy it nooooow! =)


I did this mani, well, accent nail:

Supersoaker nails manicure
Summer with KoL!

Again, I did this very quickly and I also took the picture without checking it on the computer, so it's not as clear as I would like. Now I'm thinking I should have done a gradient as well, orange-yellow-mint, like the word supersoaker in the pic.
Anyway, I like that nobody know what it means and I can still get my fangirl out ;-)


When was the last time you did 'fan'-nails? Am I too old, at 30? =(

I used: Hema mint polish with shimmer, L'Oréal Colour Riche Banana Pop, Nails Inc Cambridge Terrace

NOTD: Sprinkle Drip

Another quick NOTD, pretties. I promise I will be back soon! I have a bunch of untrieds, just a lack of inspiration right now. It's so HOT out!

Here's a drip mani using Nails Inc Pudding Lane. I got this polish at BeautyBay. I love drip manis because they add instant spice to your nails without being too *IN YOUR FACE*.


I love this polish. I'm sure you'll be seeing more if it on this blog =)

NOTD: Cambridge Terrace French


My polishes are still sitting in a box. This means I haven't had to move out yet, but it also means it hasn't been okay to unpack them. Yet.
I haven't been up to doing any nail real art yet. I have even gone bare for a few days, gasp!

Here's a quick NOTD. Nails Inc Cambridge Terrace over a coat of OPI Nail Envy (I LOVE this stuff!) and an accent of Daily Lacquer Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice.

GA Rox: Velvet Diamonds Nail Art

So sorry you guys, I know I haven't been posting or doing great nail art. Apart from my KoL mani =)
You can read the reason after the break at the bottom of this post.

Thankfully my sister Rox did a mani using some of my polishes =D

The blue is a Misslyn Velvet Diamonds polish which I haven't tried yet, can't wait to see the effect and how it compares to other brands.

Misslyn is a new brand for me. Just the Velvet Diamonds collection boasts eight colours. I also picked up some stud stickers and nail art stickers which I will hopefully use and review soon.


Rox used: Misslyn Velvet Diamonds 85 Royal Blue, Rimmel Rain Rain Go Away, Nails Inc Cambridge Terrace.

Festival Nails, yup, again =)

Nobody forget that Google Reader will be no more as of later this week! How will you keep following blogs? You can follow mine through Google Friend Connect or Bloglovin.

Last week I was working at a festival in France. It meant I had to go for a mani that would last me a few days and would be funky enough for a festival. I went for black combined with a Mavala polish I got from a swap on Facebook.

Here's a quick photo I took during a short break.



I used: Essie Licorice, Mavala Sparkling Bronze

Designing and concepts

Pretties, I was wondering. Do you any of you ever do any sketching before you do your nail art? I have been looking for an app where I can quickly doodle a design as soon as inspiration hits me. Which is often on the train, where a sketch book or something is not really an option.
I have this silly app now. It makes you clip and buff your nails and dry them under a uv light after applying polish, sigh, and doesn't have any studs but it does help me 'save' my inspiration for a later time. I have added an example to this post (a mani you will hopefully see on this blog sometime next week!).
Are you a sketcher? Any suggestion for apps?
