Hey there everybody ! So today's post is coming straight from Berlin, and I know I said I was going to post on Tuesday (today's post is in fact what was supposed to be posted on Tuesday) but I honestly got sooooo sidetracked with packing (which I didn't start until about 11pm, considering my train to Paris was at 6:15am Wednesday morning) and doing bits and pieces before I left I just didn't have any time to write the post ! And anyway, I've been really enjoying my time here in Berlin, I'm still here for a while but don't worry, I've got plenty to post, it'll just be a matter of finding the time to write it all ! So... on to the nails !

I saw this nail design a while ago in a post by Supa Nails who is actually based in Berlin, and I just loved the colour combination and the whole idea of the design, it was just a matter of waiting for the right moment to paint my nails and post these nails !

I didn't use the same nail polishes as in the original post, so instead I used P2 Jetset, Essie Splash of Grenadine and OPI My Back Pocket, for the details I used white acrylic paint. You may remember the tone gradient design I did a couple of weeks ago, well that was inspired by this colour combination, I just liked it too much !

So that's it for today guys, I should be back again soon to write another post hopefully, it just depends when I have time ! Hopefully I'll also be able to post some photos of my trip here in the next post, I just need to sync them to my computer first !

Gradient Confetti

Hey there guys ! So I've been doing my nails LOADS this week so I have plenty to post at the moment, hopefully I'll be able to do my nails while I'm in Berlin, but I won't have my light box so lighting probably won't be great but I'll do my best ! Plus I'll only be able to take a few polishes with me so I'll be limited in that aspect, especially as I want to be able to buy some while I'm away ! We'll see what happens !

So I got this idea when I first got L'Oreal Confetti, you can see the swatch here ! I wondered what the different glitters would look like if they were over black and white, and then the idea struck me to do a gradient !

For this design, I used American Apparel Hassid and American Apparel T-Shirt to do the gradient, and then I used one coat of L'Oreal Confetti over the top. I really like the way the white glitter stands out over the black and vice versa, and I bet it'll look great over different bright coloured gradients as well, so many possibilities !

So that's all for tonight everyone, I'll definitely post on Tuesday, if not before ! See you all then !

NOTD : Tone Gradient

Hey there everybody ! I told you it wouldn't be too long before I posted again so here I am ! I've been doing loads of nail designs these past couple of days in preparation for me going away for a month, so I'll still be able to post when I'm away, even though I'll still be doing my nails, I don't know what my lighting etc will be like so we'll just have to wait and see !

Today's design is really simple, going off a colour combination from a design that I will post when I go away to Berlin. I don't know where the idea came from, I was tired though and wanted something quick and easy to do, so a gradient it was !

The colours I used for this design were P2 Jetset, Essie Mint Candy Apple, Essie Splash of Grenadine, OPI My Very First Knockwurst, OPI My Back Pocket and Essie Meet Me at Sunset. I like the fact that they're just small gradients, as opposed to the usual half-nails I tend to do for my gradients.

Right so that'll be all for tonight, I really need to go to bed now, I've been writing this post for the last 2 hours ! See you all again soon everyone !

NOTD : Nude Floral

Hello there everyone ! So I know it's been a week since I last posted anything, we've had friends over from England visiting us here this week and so I haven't had much of a chance until now to write anything for you ! I did however get an opportunity to do my nails on Wednesday evening, and I'm really happy with how they turned out !

I got the idea for these nails from Kelly over at Base Coat Top Coat and using this tutorial, I had originally planned to do the nails exactly the same, but I ran out of time before we had to eat so I just stopped at step 10 ! As much as I'd have liked to have finished the whole design properly, I really like the way it looks without the dark background.

For this design, the nail varnishes I used were Champneys Nude, OPI Funkey Dunkey, OPI My Very First Knockwurst, OPI Planks A Lot, Butter London Royal Navy and my Models Own pastel yellow nail art pen. I've never done flowers like this before and I love how simple they are to do, and the details on them really gives the design a lot of depth !

So that's all for tonight everyone, I'm planning on doing my nails again tomorrow or on Monday, so it shouldn't be too long before I post something again ! I need to start writing some posts before I go to Berlin for a month, but don't worry, I'll still be able to post when I'm over there !

NOTD : Acrylic Floral

Hey there everyone ! So I'm finally back in France again now (for a few weeks at least), and I've finally managed to find some time to sit down whilst watching The Apprentice to sort through photos and write a post for you all !

So I did these nails about 10 days ago, and they lasted with just a bit of the usual tip-wear up until I took them off earlier this afternoon, so needless to say I was very impressed ! I just had a minor chip on my little finger when I took them off, and I didn't get bored of the design which is a first !

For the base colour for this design I used OPI My Vampire is Buff, and then I used acrylic paints to do the flowers. It was my first time ever using paint on my nails, but I really like how simple it was to use and the amount of time the blob on my paper took to dry was really good as well !

So anyway, that's all for today, it won't be too long until my next post so stay tuned for that, I've got something very special coming up, you won't want to miss it ! Goodnight everyone !
