I decided to treat myself this weekend and made the most of Cheap Frills 20% off offer. My package arrived today which was really quick considering I only ordered this weekend :)
(ps. please ignore my horrific nail, horrible falsies result :( )
I love the packaging it came in, its really cute, with its own little wax stamp :D
And each item came wrapped up in separate little bags with shiny star sequins :)
I loved opening them, I felt like it was my birthday again :) Little presents to myself
We'll you might have seen my silver cat ring from my previous posts :)
I decided to get the gold one too because I love it sooo much
And they go well together :D how cute!
£7 with 20% off, can't grumble at that!
I love this rabbit hat necklace it reminds me off that song by Skee-Lo
"I wish I was a little bit taller, I wish I was a baller....I wish I had a rabbit in a hat..."
I would say it was sooo hard to choose which colour to get
In the end i chose the gold in a red hat :)
£10 + 20% off :)
Finally I brought the pair of Dramatic rings :) :( haha
These only came out this weekend & they are very cute and quirky.
I would say though they are a tiny bit small, considering they are one size.
They are a little tight for my ring finger but a tiny bit big for my little finger :\
I still love them though :)
£10 for the pair +20% off
So all in all had some very nice stuff, I love the packaging and speedy delivery
I would definitely recommend Cheap Frills to you guys :)
I've always wanted to have a go at doing some Aztec nails so I had a bit of a crack at it a while ago :)
I decided to go with purple and gold to match my beautiful shoes that my auntie brought me for my birthday :D
Here's what I used....
I started with the Barry M lilac foil effect for the base coat.
I really like these foil effects because they dry really quick.
(mine are a little messy cause I was in a hurry)
Here's the pattern...
I used the Barry M Gold foil effect to add the strip just below the middle of the nail.
I then used the Models Own Nail Art Pen to outline the gold.
I added a black zig-zag line towards the tip,
and a black filled in like at the bottom,
which I added small gold dots to.
They are a tiny bit messy because I was in a hurry to go out.
I like the pattern and the colours though :)
I think I will have a go at this design again at some point
Maybe with some pastel or neon colours for spring/summer :)
:D its my birthday!! So me and the boyfriend went to see Ed Sheeran last night which was rather good :)
An we are going for a meal tonight, then I'll be partying on Saturday! :) And I'm due a shopping spree so I'll have some new things to show you all :)
Now I've bored you with what I've been up to :) here's a cupcake nail art I tried out on my sister....
I used Barry M Yellow for the base coat
I added a small strip of a pale brown for the base of the cake
Then I added dark brown stripes once the paler brown had dried
I added the white on top, making it rounded and curved
Once the white had dried I added dark brown dots and a small red dot.
Finally I added a bit of red glitter on top and covered it with a clear top coat
Hi guyss :)
My nail stamp came in the post this week, and I couldn't wait to give it a go so I just had a quick little practise. Here's how it went...
First I just added any old stamp over Barry M Foil Effect silver... you can't really see alot from the flash :/
but it wasn't too bad considering I've never used them before :)
I used an image from a M72 image plate...
I was going out Friday night so I decided to do quick stamp on my thumb and ring finger, and add a bit of sparkle to the rest using my Models Own glitter :)
I used the Barry M black as a base for all the nails, then i added the Barry M glitter and Models Own Glitter
to all nails apart from the thumb and ring finger...
(I did clean up the mess on them once they had dried but I was tired lol)
I used the Models Own white for the stamp, but it didn't really stand out once I put the clear coat on.
So this was my first attempt, not to bad. I need some practise, good job I live with 3 other females :)
Soo Question Time...
What are the best nail varnishes to use with the stamp plates?
I have lots of Barry M and Models Own, are these any good generally?
And my scraper seems to scratch the plates, is this normal?
Sorry for the lack of posting, you know how it is between Christmas and New Year :)
Now I'm just about buried in revision, for my Biology exams this month, soo my posts will probably not be as often as usual.
But I just thought I'd share with you a few little things that I've had for Christmas :D....
I had the Models Own glitter collection from my mom and dad :D
& you know how I feel about glitter :D
The Disco Mix (far left) is my fave.
The also brought me a stamp plate, but forgot the stamp so its on order :)
Does anyone know, can you use normal nail varnish with the stamps?
I had these from my boyfriends mom :) (more glitter :D )
The look like good fun, I can't wait to try them out.
My mom brought me this really nice River Island bag, complete with
FUZZY NATION WRISTLET!!
I love it, I can only fit my Lush lip balm in there but who cares!
My little sister brought me this cute ring from Cheap Frills which I loveee
I also had some nice make-up set, oh yeah and I now own more Soap & Glory than Boots :)
Me and my mom went shopping with our Christmas money that day after boxing day so I have some nice new outfits I might post when I wear them :) I had some lovely knee high boots, dvds, perfume and a mini fridge :o from the boyfriend :D and our trip to London obviously :)
which reminds me........
I finally got my Spirit Hood :D :D
on the first day I said get out google maps we are going to Ad Hoc London
So all in all I am very blessed this year :D I can't wait to try out all my new nail stuff :D
I am going to be a busy girl this month with exams, and organising my birthday :)
So I'll try my best to keep posting.
But did you all have a good Christmas?
