Elegant grunge…

I thought I’d take a break from gory Halloween manis for today. Here I’ve used Savvy nail polish, on the pinky and index finger, in “Black Martini” which is a blackish polish loaded with silver glitter and the odd pieces of red in there too.

BBF 18

For the silver stamping I’ve used BBF plate 18 and the stud is from Born Pretty store, you can find them here. I like this, simple, elegant but at the same time a touch grungy.

Day 17 Glitter….

Well I’m a whole day late on this one and I blame glitter itself! This is the second try, the first one I scraped, because the design ended up being pretty boring and I just couldn’t get the photos to do it any justice.


I’ve used OPI “My Favourite Ornament”, China Glaze “Passion” on the ring finger and stamped over it with black using BBF plate 24.

Lacquer Legion..GLAM!

Well believe it or not I was actually on time for this post, nails done, check. ¬†Photograph, edit and post, fail. Lately my camera and I have been fighting, I really fail to see what it’s problem is. We have nearly always played nicely together, but in the last couple of photo shoots, I’ve come out with yellow tinged fingers, very pink fingers or grey-ish fingers. I’m giving it the finger.

Glam 3

For the prompt of “glam” I thought glitter, glitter and maybe a touch more glitter, with some elegant pink or black swirls. I started with 3 coats of BYS “Glitter Crystal”(a dupe of a Ciate polish I’m sure), I painted some Sinful Colors “Top Me Off” on the tips and a little Barry M “Rose Quartz Glitter” around the cuticle (this is the one I’m holding).

Then I painted some swirls with black acrylic paint and filled them in with Essence “Gold Digger” or a cheap magenta pink glitter. My camera really struggled with capturing the glitter. Any tips on how to photograph glitter, is it tricky, or is it me?

Glam 1

My attempt at a glamorous pose,but you can really see that rainbow sparkle here! When looking for images of “glam” I came across this…. love it! For other lovely glam nails search #LLglam or check out the facebook page.
