40 Great Nail Art Ideas: 3 Shades of Purple

Tuesday 26 January 2016

Hellooooooooooooo there!

I have been gone soooooo long! Again I've been busy with Lane's Loves and also been down with the flu for the last week which is totally sucky but gave me time to catch up on some journalling. I was determined not to miss out on a prompt so better late than never I bring you three shades of purple with dotting tools being my additional theme...


This was so super simple thanks to leaving all this lovely negative space which y'all know I'm a nega fan of. I used three purple Barry M polishes being Orchid, Lap of Honour and Sparkling Amethyst and three different sized dotting tools to create this pretty random pattern and finished with Sally Hansen topcoat.

I adore how this mani looks and how quick it was to do because I can't tell you how long my list of jobs is for my new little business. I still have so many things to make and my ideas just continue to overflow lol!!!

Well I'm off to get myself the umpteenth Lemsip of the day before a little more planning, I'll be back here towards the end of the week with the next mani in this challenge...

Have a good one loves!

40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Things That Fly

Saturday 16 January 2016

Hello, hello beauts!

I have been totally off the radar again I know, things have been pretty busy in the past week with an attempted return to work for the first time since my heart op in November... Let's just say it wasn't very successful and is a bit of a sore point lol! So one thing that is definitely flying at the moment is time, and I almost did something along those lines but when it came to it I needed something EASY. Inspired by the recent frosty mornings and the abundance of crows in my neck of the woods at the moment...

I started with an undercoat of Maybelline Colourshow Cool Touch before applying one thick coat of the Hare Polish Wrapped in Plastic. I then stamped using another colorshow polish called Blackout and MoYou London Gothic plates 04 & 07. Finished up with Barry M Plumpy Topcoat which has quickly become a favourite.

Being a grey-phile I do adore this particular Hare and the flip of warm and cool colours really captures the tone of the mornings at the moment.

I've nothing much else to say tonight my loves, it's been quite a draining few days and I've been busy with Lane's Loves too so for now it's time for a cup of tea, a big fat bar of chocolate and putting my feet up!

Have a lovely weekend all.

40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Pale Blue Base

Sunday 10 January 2016

Well hello there my lovelies!

I've been nowhere with my nails over the last week or so, partly because I have been a busy bee with all my Lane's Loves stuff and partly because I got a tad lazy with our little weeks break in the challenge on the 1st! Anyhoo I'll be trying my best to get this train back on track starting with this pale blue mani, my pattern for this colour prompt is dots and I did something super simple that just popped into my head and suited my need for something quick...

I teamed up two Picture Polishes for this manicure, the base being two coats of the lovely Tiffany and then the dots done in the super delicate Eerie with a small dotting tool. I finished it with a splash of Barry M Plumpy Topcoat and that's a wrap.

I wasn't sure if something so simple would look a little half baked but actually I really like this dotty border instead of a full nail pattern. The colours are just gorgeous together too, I do love my PP's!

Hope you've all had a lovely weekend and have as good a Monday as anyone can haha!

Lane's Loves Launch!

Saturday 2 January 2016

Happy New Year Loves!

So as well as welcoming in the new year and all my new planner goodies for 2016 I also launched my new planner blog and my planner accessory shop on Etsy! I think I mentioned my plans for it all in my last post but now it's a reality - EEK. If there are any planner girls out there I would love your guys' support in my new venture Lane's Loves! To mark the occasion I've done some nails inspired by my branding...

I used two coats of Barry M Cotton for the base and once dried for a good forty minutes or so I taped off the stripes using vinyls from She Sells Sea Shells before giving a coat of Maybelline Colorshow Black To Basics and immediately removing them again. I then used a dotting tool with Bazza Strawberry Ice Cream, Berry Ice Cream, Blue Moon, Lemon Ice Cream, Mint Green and Models Own Bora Bora for the confetti gradient before finishing with Plumpy Topcoat.

So I had hoped to post this yesterday to match my launch date but just as I got myself comfy with a cuppa and some biscuits, Windows 10 decided it was time to do an update that lasted over an hour by which time I'm sorry to say I was watching my eyelids haha.

So that's a wrap for tonight my lovelies, I'm off to get planning & making for my little Etsy shop which I will shamlessly link HERE. I hope you all had a lovely time welcoming in the new year and are enjoying this long weekend before the real daily grind restarts!
