So at the risk of having my mum ring me everyday for the next week, I’m going to share with you a little secret….. I get depressed, there I’ve said it! Apparently 80% of the population do at some point. When I feel down, I don’t feel like doing anything, but today I made myself do nails, because I know that being creative also makes me happy. So when looking for a plate that appealed to me in my crappy mood, Moyou London Punk collection 04 jumped out at me. Maybe it was the skeleton sticking up its middle finger?!
On my middle finger, I’ve used my all time favourite polish OPI “Push and Shove” and stamped over it in black with that naughty skeleton…how rude! On the ring finger I’ve used a black leather effect polish and some seriously dangerous looking studs! The other two fingers are just a coat of black stamped with Essie “No Place Like Chrome” and a gorgeous skull /wallpaper like pattern. Thanks for looking and mum I feel better today okay. So to all you people that feel down sometimes, seriously doesn’t everyone, remember you are not alone. That doing something that you enjoy, often makes you feel better. Exercise is a great too….*note to self….do more exercise!
I’m at a loss for a funky titled name for this post. I don’t know about you but I’m sick of Xmas manis!!!!!!! But then again I can’t say I like Xmas too much, I always have to work and its hectic. The roads are busy, the shops are busy, people go a little crazy. If you don’t have lots of family or friends you end up feeling lonely. When asked where my Xmas spirit is, I usually reply…”I drank it!” Anyway onto to the nails…
For these I stamped with my own pink/magenta (unnamed) polish over a black base using Moyou london plates 07 and 08 from the Fashionista collection. The fleur de lis 3-D nail “stud” is from Born Pretty I think. Stay sane til Xmas!
Hello all, long time no see! Did you realise that we just celebrated “No nail art November”? Of course you didn’t because I just made that up! But I did go missing last November too due to a big hailstorm we had here. So perhaps November, nail art and me just don’t get on! Well this year I have spent nearly every spare minute working on a new project. I have created my own brand of nail polish called “Hit the Bottle polishes”. I wanted to make vibrant, bright, fun colours that stamp over black. At the moment I can only ship within Australia, as I’ve only been open a week so it’s early days yet. If you are interested you can find my online store here….http://hitthebottlepolishes.bigcartel.com/ I hope to add some glitter jellies very soon. Anyway onto today’s nails, a few days ago it was my birthday, so to snap myself out of my nail art drought I had to do some birthday nails right? I also had to try a new Moyou plate, Fashionista 07, this image is so gorgeous stamped! So I went for something really quick and easy. On the pinky and index finger I have used OPI “My Favourite Ornament”, on the middle finger a leather effect polish from the brand Model’s Own. The base on the ring finger is OPI “Designer, De-Better” stamped over with my own brand black called “Blacked Out”. Thanks for looking, promise I’ll be back soon!
