First Attempt at Needle Dragging and 200th Blog Post !

Hello there everyone ! So I got back from Prague after an amazing 2.5 days holiday there and will be travelling back home to France tomorrow, it will have been a busy few days by the time I get back ! But anyway, I said in my last post that I would be able to post something on Sunday, so here it is before I go to bed (early morning again tomorrow !) !

I did this design a few days before I left for Berlin, and although it was my first ever attempt at needle dragging, I'm really pleased with the outcome ! Basically what you do is you apply your first coat of polish as normal and let it dry, and then you do a really thick coat and immediately blob on another coloured nail varnish on top and then using a needle, just drag the second colour out into the first... does that make sense ? All I did was look up a couple of tutorials online and I went from there, it's pretty simple to do !

For this needle dragging design, I started with a base of OPI My Vampire is Buff, and for the dark purple I used OPI I Vant to Bite Your Neck. I love these two polishes together, especially I Vant to Bite Your Neck, will definitely have to use it in my designs more often !

Also, almost forgot to mention... THIS IS MY 200th BLOG POST !!!!!! Wooohooooooo hip hip hooray for big milestones ! There have been plenty of milestones this month actually, first my first year blogaversary and now my 200th post, lots to celebrate !

Right, I'm off to bed now, got to get ready for another long day of travelling ahead of me, sigh.. but I'm really looking forward to being home again and seeing my family, oh, and of course, being able to sleep in my own bed : there's no better feeling after a long time away from home !

And don't forget to tune in here tomorrow evening at 7pm sharp (6pm GMT), I've got a post scheduled for you all that you won't want to miss ! See you all then !


  1. I really like this mani! The one on your middle finger kind of almost looks like a jelly fish :)

  2. Oh wow, that looks like fun! It looks great for a first-time experiment too! I've never tried needle dragging, now I just might have to give it a shot.
    Congrats on 200 posts!
