New York Nail Art.



It's that time of year again where I head off to the greatest city in the world. This is my third version of New York nails and they are definitely my favourite. Since theres been so many gradient nails around this year, I thought it would be a good idea to use gradient as a background, almost like a sunrise/sunset. I started with a dark blue to white gradient as a base coat and then added in the buildings using a thin brush. Then, using a tiny dotting tool, I added in the windows/lights. I also added in an 'I Heart NY' on the thumb. Hope you like the design, see you in New York! :)

Butter London: Rosie Lee Review

I recently bought this lipgloss and nail polish by Butter London in the shade 'Rosie Lee'. The lipgloss is priced at £15 and the nail polish £13. I had them both in a set for £9.99 in TK Maxx (Bargain!) I highly recommend TK Maxx for high end nail polishes at discount prices. I've bought OPI, Essie and Models Own from there before but this is the first time I've seen anything from Butter London in there and had to give it a try.

With Valentines day just around the corner this pretty pale pink set is the perfect shade for this time of the year. As the name suggests it is a beautiful rose shade and is not too bright or over the top if you're not a fan of bright pinks. The nail polish needs at least two coats as you would expect from a glitter polish (I have applied two coats in the images shown and a clear top coat). The lipgloss is just as lovely and is not too thick or sticky which is always a good thing when it comes to lip glosses. The lipgloss is not that pigmented and has little bit of sparkle just giving a natural light pink shade which is perfect for a daytime look.

These items are both available on the Butter London website but keep your eyes peeled for them in TK Maxx to save yourself some money. I will definitely be getting a lot of use out of both of these products and think it is a great gift idea for someone (or yourself!) for Valentines.

Valentines Day Nails - Glitter Love Hearts

Hi guys! Just another quick post for some Valentines nails and this is possibly my most girly design to date. I used a pink glitter polish to create love hearts on my ring fingers and thumbs. I then outlined them with black and added a scroll onto the heart on the thumb. My nails are generally quite small so it was difficult to add the text onto the scroll, hence why it looks a little messy. Hope you like this design and I will be back very soon with some more loved-up nail designs. xx
