#NAILLINKUP – Aqua Nail Art

Yay, it’s Monday!!!

… Err, no, actually I hate Mondays. Always have. Speaking of which, I used to have a Garfield the cat bedspread with “I hate Mondays” on it. Because I loved Garfield. Mostly because I idolised my uncle, who loved Garfield, haha!

Now that you know a few useless interesting facts about me, lets talk nails!

Ozotic – 528 (and piCture pOlish PMT)

So maybe I should have invited some guest bloggers to cover my holidays, haha !

Ah well, you’re still stuck with me 😉

Today I have a gorgeous duochrome glitter to show you – Ozotic 528. I popped this over piCture pOlish PMT because I’m a bit obsessed with trying to stick to the same brand for different polishes in each mani… I won’t swatch this for you, since better bloggers have been there and done that, but here’s the result I got with a bit of striping tape…

piCture pOlish – Brushes, Beige, PMT & Atomic

So the new piCture pOlish brushes arrived this week, they were good to their word !

Would you like to see? Well, I cleaned up one of the old ones I removed to show you the difference. The new one is shorter, but the stem is a little longer, so it still goes right to the bottom of the bottle.

Please excuse the dust – it only showed up once I blew the photo right up!

So how does it perform? Well, the new one is smoother. The bristles have a flexibility that runs more consistently along them, which means it fans out really nicely. In comparison, the older, rounder one has bristles that don’t spread as evenly or predictably. On the brushes below, I held them both together, so the pressure on them should be about the same

So I changed them all over, pretty messy for 11 bottles, so I’m glad I had some gloves handy 😉

Here’s the collection !

Pre-Spring Challenge Day 12 – Stripes

I do love dark nail polish, and I realised that I haven’t had a very dark mani in this challenge yet, so I grabbed one of my Christmas Box Sets that my boyfriend got me from Models Own and my Models Own Pro in black and got to work with the striping tape !

I’m so happy with how this one came out, though I did do it at the end of a long night, so admittedly was a bit slapdash – as my cuticles will confirm :

The polishes all have a bit of a metallic sheen to them, and I just love how the flash brings that out :

Pre-Spring Challenge Day 7 – Pastel

So this weekend I added a photo to my gravatar. As much as I love taking photos of my hands, I’m not a big fan of my face, so this is a big step for me !

Today’s theme is a pastel tape mani. I used this as an excuse to try out an idea I’ve been thinking of for a while, it’s a fishtail, but with tape to create a small gap between the colours. I think the lilac is a bit too pale, but this turned out pretty well 🙂
