Nailmas Day 20 - Nail Art Foil from Sparklynails

Saturday, December 20, 2014
Hello all! I hope you are having a great weekend. I had an interesting morning going to a TV studio to talk through a possible opportunity that's coming up in January. I can't say too much about it at the moment, but will keep you posted.

Nailmas Day 19 - Kiko Duo Chrome pink

Friday, December 19, 2014
For today's nails I went a bit mad with my dotting tool again! I wanted to go for a less festive pink colour so dug out this Kiko Duo Chrome pink, which doesn't seem to have a name but has the number 397 on it. I did one coat of this before adding the green dots in Nails Inc Holly Walk.

Nailmas Day 18 - Red - Topshop Lacquered

Thursday, December 18, 2014
Today my nails got chopped off. I broke one nail and decided they all had to go, but now I really miss them being long, never happy! But I did get my dotting tools through the post today which I was happy about as I have lost my two biggest tools I had in a previous pack. I tested them out on this mani.

Nailmas Day 17 - Glitter gold stripes

Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Today's look is all about the striping tape - and boy did I have problems with this one! I had to experiment a couple of times as every time I took the tape off the top layer would muck up the gold lines. Anyway, I think we got there in the end, so let's have a closer look at it.

Nailmas Day 16 - Festive Dotticure

Tuesday, December 16, 2014
I love a dotticure manicure, and haven't done one so far as I have lost my dotting tools :( So while I wait for the ones I've ordered to come I improvised using the bottom of my nail art brush for these - I think they've worked out alright. I wanted to go for a festive look using different shades of green and reds, unfortunately, the colours, which looked quite different shades in real life, look quite similar in these pictures, never mind. I'm always learning, and when I do it again I know how to improve it.

Nailmas Day 15 - Christmas Baubles

Monday, December 15, 2014
It's getting closer to Christmas and I'm getting more excited! I met up with my friends in Wales over the weekend as it was probably the last time we will get to see each other before Christmas. We swapped presents, had a good gossip and a catch up and had cocktails - mocktails for me.  So I did these nails before I went away.

Nailmas Day 14 - Frosted Gold

Sunday, December 14, 2014
Today's Nailmas look is this gorgeous matte gold look - Gosh's Frosted Gold. I got this a few weeks ago and have been using any excuse to paint my nails with it. It is an unusual texture as it feels like sand on the nail but is made of packed together gold which is shiny and matte in one.
