Happy Nail Art for @pmabelle – flower nail art models own

I did this nail art for a competition over at Pmabelle’s blog. The theme is ‘happy’ and I am definitely ‘happy’ enough with this nail art to want to share it 🙂

Happy concours for Pmabelle -002

I decided to do freehand flowers, because flowers, springtime and being outside make me happy. As well as clean, yet bright nail art!

GOT Polish Challenge – Valentines

It’s nearly Valentines Day! And, even better than that, it’s nearly Friday 😀

So this afternoon at the office I got a bunch of roses! It was a lovely surprise. We don’t usually celebrate Valentines day, so I wasn’t expecting it at all. And, even better, because my bloke knows that the flower delivery is usually in the afternoon, he got it sent a day early, so I can make the most of it, in case it wilts over the weekend! Plus, they smell delicious 🙂

Today’s theme for the GOT Polish Challenge is Valentines.

Models Own Velvet Goth Box Set *picture heavy* – Valerian, Obsidian, Sardonyx, Amethyst, Absinthe

I’m in Switzerland today on a work trip, so please do excuse the pre-prepared post 😉

Of course, for the trip I needed Grown-Up, Sensible Nails. So I spent some time this weekend swatching the Velvet Goth Box Set by Models Own to get the fun out of my system 😉

I’ll mostly let the pictures do the talking! This is all 2 coats, no top-coat. They aren’t ‘velvet’-effect in the same way as Zoya, for example, they are rather gelly polishes with a heavy dose of glitter and a semi-matte finish.

Models Own Fruit Pastel Box Set *picture heavy*

Models Own Fruit Pastel Box Set

 

Hey girlies! Happy Saturday. It’s the weekend, yay!

Of course I realise that pastels are often kept for spring/summer, but as I was slouching around this afternoon in my new cream jumper, I decided that pastels would actually look pretty great with it. So I grabbed another one of my early Christmas presents (I am so very spoiled, lol!) – the Fruit Pastel box set by Models Own.

 

And I got photo-bombed by Clingy Kitty a lot…

They are all fruity-scented (once dried) – I gave myself quite a headache giving them all a good sniff! The label on the top of the bottle is scratch-and-sniff, and represents very well what the polish inside will smell like.

Models Own – Beetle Juice – Emerald Black, Golden Green, Pinky Brown, Purple Blue, Aqua Violet & Hayley’s Comet

Good evening! I’ve got another monster swatch post for you 🙂

I got three new models own nail polish from the Beetle Juice collection recently. Since this is very much an autumn/winter collection (for me, at least), I thought it would also be a good time to go over the swatches I did of my original three, and maybe even improve on them!

First up, Emerald Black. This is a nicely covering black creme with a lovely green shimmer. I’ve had this one for over a year, and I have to say, the formula hasn’t thickened at all. I used two coats – one was almost enough!

#31DC2013 – Glitter

Hey girls!

Thanks for sticking with me over the last few days! The new internet box has been set up and seems to be working, not well, but working! I was really pulling my hair out for the first couple of days without the internet, but then I sort of got used to it. I even felt pretty good, finally not worrying about checking my phone all the time. Now I’m stressing over catching up! I mean, I know it’s not a big deal of I skip a couple of nail art themes. I do realise that worse things than that do happen in the world! But despite that perspective, I really want to do tribal nails and delicate pattern nails!

That’s enough waffling, onto the glitter 🙂
