Gold and purple

I'm started this blog as a place to share and record the nail art that I've done. Sometimes life and work gets in the way and I'm not posting as much as want. So to compact this I'm going to do another nail challenge as this gave me motivation to post more frequently so keep an eye out, it starts late September :)  

Onto todays short post. I've used Models Own Purple Imperial which is super smooth and reminds me so much of Cadburys chocolate, I had this on my nails with a matte top coat and although it looked great, I did forget to take a photo :(  It needed something extra so I reached for my Models Own Gold Rush, some nail tape and wham!

The combination of the matte purple and the highly sparkly gold looks fab in the sunshine and just love how they turned out.

OPI, What Wizardry Is This?

A friend at work very kindly let me try her OPI What Wizardry Is This? The only catch was that I had to do her nails first!

This is the first time I've used OPI and to be honest I think I need to add some to my collection. The formula is great, the brush is fab, it has lasting power, no chips for 3 days and surprisingly easy and straight forward to remove.

Its textured, but not so much that it feel rough to the touch just slightly grainy ( like sand!) I spent most the day when they were fast painted stroking and running my fingers over the nails, strangely calming and therapeutic! The colour is stunning a deep metal gold with matt finish but because it's textured the sunshine bounces of the little grains and it makes the gold 'dance' and sparkle. just beautiful.

Models Own, Zest A Peal

It's August which should mean its summer but the weather is a bit up and down at the minuet. one day it blistering hot, blue skies, summer time bliss the next day it rain storms, thunder clouds and lightening, 

This Models Own Zest A Peal is perfect to lighten the mode and insert a burst of colour into my day :)

I've used two thin coat and the colour is so pretty. it has a slight shimmer in it so when it the sunlight (when we have any!) it sparkles and looks amazing.

Tiger stripes

You cant beat a bit of animal print to cheer yourself up :)

I've used Models Own Lemon Meringue, Miss Guided orange, Models Own black nail art pen and 17 nail xtras, glitter top coat.

Please ignore the messy edges, I didn't have time to do a decent clean up, had to rush off to work.
