Ballerina girly nails

Shimmery pink: Max Factor
Glitter: Bourjois

Another nail post!!
My mum originally tried this design, but decided she liked bright colours better and said it was really 'me' but I haven't got round to trying it until now, so I suppose I can't take all of the credit :(

It makes a good difference to having loud nails, I don't have to wear understated outfits to make sure not to clash with them which is rather refreshing :D

Marbled Pastels

Lilac, Pink, Orange: Model's Own
Mint: 17

These nails are so un- me, I usually just go for one colour but I thought i'd try something new and exciting, so here it is :D

Instead of marble-ing straight onto my nail, I came up with the colour theme on a plastic wallet and marbled onto that with a thick layer of nail varnish, then cut out the shape of my nail.
.. Surprisingly I never actually put pink into the marble mixture, it sort of just appeared :/

Hope everyone had fun celebrating the queen's jubilee! I did :)

Mystic Magnetic

Blue: Barry M

I got this amazing new Barry M magnetic nail varnish for my birthday! :D  Also in red, thanks Mummy!

I was really stuck with what arty photo I could match with these nails, and then I thought.. Water!! The swirly patterns are just like water. It took me a while to get a perfect shot, but was worth it in the end as usual :)
