Movember - Charity Support

So last month was Breast Cancer awareness month and I did a nice little set of nails for that, I thought it was only fair to continue my support. As November is also known as 'Movember' for the raising awareness of Mens Health - specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

Here's me sportin' a Mo..

I know, I know. I carry it well!

Anyway - I decided to rep to the Mo on my nails as I am incapable (thank god) of growing one on my face!

I wanted to go for a nice bright background that was going to get them noticed! The lil' tashes are actually small stickers - No way could I hand paint 10 perfect Mos! Sticking them on with tweezers was enough of a challenge, thank ya very much!

Are you supporting Movember?

I Is For...

I've been slacking again - sorry! :) I'm useless! I'll try to be better - I promise!

Anyway, next installment over at Llama Nails 'ABC Challenge' is I!

Sooo... I is for... ICECREAM!

 It's always fun to spread the design over both hands and bring them together to complete it!

My icecreams look a bit top heavy though! Do you like?

Hey, Hey I Wanna Be A Rockstar!

So as it's Halloween..I had 553354564 million people knocking at the door wanting sweets which meant painting nails was difficult! I did do a really cute floral pattern but it got smudged in the door opening and sweet giver-out-ing! So I decided on a simple but fun mani using the rockstar ring finger.

I decided to chuck a blurry photo in there as it picked up the different colours nicely!

USED: Models Own Hed Kandi Hedonist and Barry M Silver Cascade finished with Out the Door Top Coat.

I <3 Models Own. It actually becoming my new obsession. I just can't seem to get enough of it! All their polishes are a nice thick consistency and apply to the nail really nicely, giving a nice smooth, glass like finish - which I LOVE.

Do you use Models Own? What's your fav?

H Is For..

So this post is a little early this week as I feel like I've not posted in forever! We normally post our ABC of Nails on Wednesday so I'm a day early!

I did originally choose Hello Kitty but my attempt was shocking. She looked like she'd been in a fight with a pair of scissors..and lost. So seeing as it's the right time of year... H is for.. HALLOWEEN! (Dur..!)

Pretty simple design using Bundle Monster plate BM-222.

Stamps are a little messy but I think that's down to the quality of polish I'm using! I really need to invest in some proper stamping polish!!

How are you wearing your nails this Halloween?

Betelgeuse, Betelgeuse, Betelgeuse!!

So you know I made a nice little order from Models Own a few weeks back..? Well I ordered the Mini Beetlejuice Collection. I'd not really looked over the little guys but last night I wanted something nice but that wasn't going to take me forever to do!

I decided on 'Pinky Brown'. As I hadn't used it yet, I thought I'd be a good time to try. Well..from the first nail I was INSTANTLY in love! The first coat didn't quite give full coverage, but 2 was perfect. It looks a metallic purple but under the light it picks up hints of brown (hence the name, but I'd say it's more purple than pink!). I can't even describe it. It's just beautiful! Take a look...

These pictures show 2 coats of Models Own Pinky Brown with one top coat of Out the Door.

I tried my hardest to capture my nails in different lights to try and get the mixture of colours across. It's such a beautiful polish that it's gone right up there in my favourites! It's ideal for Christmas, too! Now I'm excited to try to out the other polishes in the Beetlejuice Collection!

Have you used any Models Own polishes? Which ones do you love?

G Is For..

My 'can't paint my nails for a week' rule went out the window - especially as it's Wednesday which means it's the ABC Challenge over at Llama Nails!

I had a few ideas for G but decided to go with something I love...GAMING!

I was pretty happy with the results. I just based it on the button of an Xbox controller. I love my Xbox so made sense I should put it on to my nails! :)

What do you think to gaming nails?
