The Thin Gold Line

More line art, this time Rimmel PRO Pink and BarryM gold. Of course, I had to go for the contrasting reverse colour nail :)

All White

My love of BarryM Crackle nail polish remains strong, so I bought a new one the other day, this time I chose White. I painted it over the top of my Rimmel PRO light grey, and used my Rimmel glitter top coat, simple!

Let’s Get Nude

Sometimes it’s appropriate to be subtle, and this is how I felt this week. So I opted for Rimmel PRO Beige polish as a base coat, with a little pink heart drawn on my ring finger nail (I couldn’t be totally plain) and a Rimmel Glitter topcoat. Subtle yet pretty. Whoever said beige is boring? :)

Duck Feet Nails, Really?

I do love to experiment with my nails, but there is a line I will draw, and I think this is it. This is not attractive in the slightest. What do you think, love or hate?

Line Art

This week, my inspiration again originated from Pinterest. I wanted to experiment with lines so I bought these rolls of nail art tape from ebay.

As the tape is s fine, it is pretty fiddly to use. My advice is to always twist the end after you cut a bit off so it’s easy to find when you go to cut some more. Yesterday I painted my nails using Rimmel PRO Peppermint to ensure they were completely dry today. I cut a few short pieces of tape and away i went:

I painted over the top/up to the tape with my favourite Rimmel PRO Show Off. I also added some dots to one of my nails using my nail art pen.

The finished result:

This Little Piggy Went To Market

This week my nails have been all shades of pink, inspired by a design I found on Pinterest.

This was a fairly Rimmel dominated design. I love the Rimmel PRO range because the brush is so wide. They also dry pretty quickly and have a lovely glossy finish.

I felt that the fade design wasn’t quite enough, so I added two little hearts, black and pink, using my nail art pens.
