Ruleee Britania!!

Hi guys :)

This year has been pretty good for us Brits. I missed the queens jubilee because I was on holiday, but I really caught the Olympic fever.

Initially I hadn't planned on watching much but I thought the opening ceremony was brilliant, and I ended up finding myself screaming at the TV most nights. Some of the highlights for me were Mo winning double gold and I was pretty happy with our equestrian medals :)

So like many of us, I decided to show my pride with a new mani :) I know it's late now but with the para olympics a few days away I thought I'd it show you guys anyway :)

The blue is Barry M navy, the white base is Models Own and the glitter is also Models Own :) For the heart, I painted the union jack first then went around it with a black nail art pen.

Hope you like :)

A Bit of Glits!

Hi guys,
I love glitter polishes because they are so quick and easy to do but look just that little bit more special :)
So today for a quick post I thought I'd show you a few of my favourite glitters.

This first glitter polish I picked up in body care for 99p! I used it over a navy blue that I had and I really like the outcome :) The make of the polish is Technic and it's called Carnival. It's a nice glitter with lots of bright colours in it, and it goes on really well too :)

The OPI polish is from the muppets collect, which my sisters friend kindly gave to me :) Its Divine Swine over Pepe's Purple Passion (which is more red than purple but hey ho). I really like this combo, and it lasts foreverrrr! It didn't even chip!

Finally, I love Models Own Ibiza Mix! It's got lots of different coloured glitters in it so it goes great over most colours. I love it over this Barry M deep purple for a quick night out look, or over a light peach for a more summery style :)

Let me know which ones your favourite :)

Just Another Mani Monday!

Hi guys :)
I had a fab weekend down in Weymouth, eating fish and chips and walking round the arcades. The B&B that we found last minute was gorgeous. Really nice and clean.

Well it's back to the wild ways of Wolverhampton. In tribute, I thought I would show you a few leopard print manis that I have don't over the year.

I'm not sure what order these photos will show up in because I'm using the iPhone blogger app, but here goes.

First up, blue and yellow leopard. Both models own colours with the nail art pen for detail.

Second, I used models own lilac for the base coat then sponged on a mint green half way up the nail. Once it had dried I used the nail art pen for the leopard detail.

Finally, gold funky! I used Barry M metallic gold for the base coat, then just splodged on a bright blue and pink polish for the spots, which I then went round with the nail art pen to create the leopard effect.

Hope you like :)
Let me know which is your favourite.

I'm off to see the sea!

Hi guys :)
Me and the family are going to Weymouth today for a little weekend break.

We got off to a great start. My dad missed the junction for the M5 and we ended up half way to birmingham, even though he has been driving to weymouth for years and years! We all had a good laugh at him.

We booked in with Victoria by the sea. It hasn't got the best Internet reviews but we were struggling to find somewhere to cater for all six of us, so we thought we would give it a go. Well, they called us at 9 o'clock to inform us that we couldn't have our rooms because they had double booked -.- needless to say my mother was not best impressed. I would not recommend booking with them ever as the other hotels told us this was a regular thing. Anyway we sorted it out we are stopping somewhere else now :)

My nan has got her happy shopper full of food and is currently passing round the sandwiches for the tenth time, followed by, "sausage roll anyone?" It's all good fun.

Any occasion wouldn't be complete without a new mani :) I thought I'd give the dream catcher design a go.
For the base colour I used my Nails Inc nude that I got free with a magazine a while ago. Then I used my nail art pens for the detail.
Hope you like :)
