Pink Wednesday - Breast Cancer Awareness

As you probably know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month (if you didn't know, where have you been!) so for this Pink Wednesday I'm dedicating a manicure to the cause. It is also depression awareness month and as I did last year, I'll be coming up with a green mani later in the month too. But for now, here's my pink awareness Mani. I used my Born Pretty Store pink magnetic polish, wirh the striped magnet from a Barry M magnetic polish before stamping awareness ribbons on the rings and thumbs and adding a rhinestone to the centre. Simple but effective!

NOTD - Twit Twoo!

I've had this manicure in my inspiration file for ever, and some owl gloves I bought myself inspired me to finally try it! I think the original is by Chalkboard Nails, but please correct me if I'm wrong (I usually am!) I used a LOT of polishes in this design, so I'll just list them:
Thumb (brown): Color Club Rad Nomad and Earthy Angel
Index (pink): Beauty Uk Street Rose and OPI Steady as she rose
Middle (green): China Glaze Exotic Encounters and Aquadelic
Ring (purple): OPI Parlez Vous OPI? and Beauty Uk Smokey Lilac
Pinkie (blue): Barry M Cobalt Blue and China Glaze Electric Beat
Details: beak - Sinful Colors Hazard, eyes - Rio nail art pens in yellow and black
My base is a bit milky so they're not completely nude underneath. They're far from perfect and my top coat smudged the eyes a bit but I love my wonky little owls! What do you think?

Adventures in Stamping - Metallic Madness

Hi loves,
I'm still computer-less (again), so another post from my phone- and a late one at that! This weeks adventures in stamping theme was metallic madness, so I started with a base of this pewter colour polish, Essence Must Have, which has really pretty blue sparkles in the right light. I then stamped with BM301 and Barry M Silver Foil effects. I think it looks kinda Beetlejuice-y! My nails are getting long again, apart from the trouble maker indexes and thumbs- to nub or not to nub...

NOTD - they're angry...

Hi all!
Yesterday was my son's 5th birthday, I can't quite believe he's lasted this long personally, but he has so we celebrated! He had some friend round to run riot and have cake and I painted my nails to match the party theme: Angry Birds. I used Barry M Bright Red and some Rio nail art pens for the design, and it matched the cake!

My laptop has gone pop again so I'm posting this from my phone - apologies if it looks odd!
