I needed some quite glam nails for a night out this week and spent some time doing what I love best, stamping. I decided to try out a new polish called Gold Rush by Models Own which was kindly sent to me by Littlewoods.
I painted each nail with two coats and then I did some stamping on top. It is a gorgeous polish and applies really well. It is good for layering to get a deeper gold colour but I think two coats was fine. I also really like that this polish dries very quickly. Although the bottle looks very shimmery the polish goes on smooth and doesn’t feel grainy.
I think this colour is just what I need as the sunshine has finally arrived in March!
You can find this polish online at Littlewoods in their nail beauty section.
A couple of days ago I tried out my new neon polishes and I thought I would try one of the polishes with some nail art. I picked bubblegum. I love pink polishes. Although it is not completely matte, I love the feel of my nails with this polish.
I used three coats of bubblegum and I waited a few minutes for them to dry. I then used my stamping plate BM 322 which has a houndstooth print on to stamp a design on my ring finger.
I haven’t used a top coat but I could either use a gloss or matte one to give a different effect. I love these nails and I will be sad when I have to remove this design but I have lots more nail art I want to do with the other neon colours.
Here are two more gorgeous colours by Barry M and their new Gelly polish range, out in the shops tomorrow!
I think these two shades of Green Berry and Lychee really compliment each other, I used two coats and I love the colours I think they are perfect for spring!
I love stamping so I added these cheeky little hearts to my ring finger. What do you think?

What a week it has been! Freezing temperatures, frost and now torrential downpours! Tis the Christmas season though so onwards with my festive nail art. Tonight I bring you holly and berries nail art.
I used red glitter which I think is one of the best coloured glitters for Christmas!
The last few days have been so so cold! How better to celebrate the start of December than snowflake nail art?
Do you ever do a manicure that goes wrong? Well this is one of those but I quite liked it so I decided to post the pictures anyway. I wanted to use my snowflake design from one of my stamping plates to try and arrange snowflakes in different places on each nail.
I managed to fail at doing this and overlapped the snowflakes. I still like the effect anyway!

It has been so cold for the last few days. I have had to defrost my car, in fact my door was frozen shut a couple of days ago when I woke up! My nail art is inspired by ice and cracked ice. You know the type you see on the pavement that you have a mini heart attack over when you slip and catch your balance just in time.
