January Galentines Meebox Review

January ‘Galentines’ Meebox Review

I’ve had this box for a while, it arrived on the 23rd of January! However, I’m not overly impressed… I don’t know why but maybe it’s because I’m not a fan of red polishes and I already own the Models Own polish… Anyway, let’s take a look. Read More »

Tipped Off Nail…Art Challenge July – Week 3


Welcome to Week 3 of my Tipped Off Nail Art Challenge July 🙂 I’m doing good so far! I have yet to give up!

Day 11 of #tippedoffnailartchallenge July -  sunshine nails

Day 11 – sunshine as I said on Instagram I was going for something different here but didn’t end up liking it. I used Barry M Eat My Dust and topped it off with Nails Inc Fleet Street and then I placed an assortment of gold studs from the born pretty store (no longer available) and tried to arrange it as the sun with some rays radiating outwards…

Day 12 of #tippedoffnailartchallengejuly - floral nails

Day 12 – floral I used Barry M cotton (which I will be properly swatching soon!) from the gelly hi-shine range and applied some full water decals from the born pretty store* which I was sent a long time ago – they aren’t on the website anymore but you can probably find some similar ones. They weren’t as straight forward as I thought but they turned out okay!

Day 13 of #tippedoffnailartchallengejuly - Vintage nails

Day 13 – vintage For this I used all Barry M – surprise suprise 😉 For my index and pinky finger I used Eat My Dust and for the other 2 I used Lap of Honour and striped on some Cotton. The base of the roses are done with Pit Stop (swatch to follow – this Sunday actually) from the new speedy quick dry range and the detail was done using Chai and Cotton.

Day 14 of #tippedoffnailartchallengejuly - Pop art nails

Day 14 – pop art  I decided to try the cartoon nails look – which is actually a lot harder than I thought. I think it would have been easier on my old square nails. The base colour is Sugar Plum (swatches to follow) and the rest is done using acrylic paint.

Day 15 of #tippedoffnailartchallengejuly - Galaxy nails

Day 15 – galaxy For this I started with W7 matte black (swatches soon) and sponged on some Sugar Plum and Damson from Barry M. I then dotted on some white acrylic paint and once dry finished off with China Glaze Fairy Dust. This is my first galaxy nails on a black background the others I did were on white 🙂

Day 16 of #tippedoffnailartchallengejuly - bikini nails

Day 16 – bikinis How cute!? I used Barry M Lychee as a base and then I used a thin brush and 4 So Susan colours in (from left to right) Soft Plum, Summer Breeze, Water Melon and Smurfette to draw on the bikinis. I love this haha. I feel like I should have done more detail on the bikinis though.

Day 17 of #tippedoffnailartchallengejuly - Water nails

Day 17 – water For this one I used 7 Barry M colours to try and create an affect of deepening water, you know when it looks like it gets darker towards the bottom 🙂 So from cuticles to tips I used Huckleberry, Eat My Dust, Elderberry, Blueberry, Damson, Blue Grape and Blackberry. I just applied these straight onto my basecoat using a thin brush and applied the next colour while the first was still wet so I could blend them a little bit.

I hope you’re enjoying these so far and don’t forget to check out Week 1 and Week 2.
