Aussie Nails Monday 'Weather'

Hi guys,
Just a quick post today.

This is my Aussie Nails Monday 'Weather' mani.

It was a pretty half-assed attempt but it turned out ok.

I used Cult Nails 'Time Traveller' as the base, Ulta 3 'Lily White' for the cloud, Essie 'Smooth Sailing' for the tip of the nail an Ulta3 'Honolulu' for the lightning.

So, here are the pics...

Aussie Nails Monday - Glitter

Hi everyone,
Wow! I have actually managed to last for 2 weeks of this challenge. And this one is actually being posted on a Monday (just)!

The theme for this week is GLITTER!

This is Lynnderella The Glittering Crowd over Avon Sequinned Turquoise.

I had a look through my many glitters to find the perfect one for this challenge. It needed to encapsulate ‘glitter’ perfectly.

I decided upon Lynnderella ‘The Glittering Crowd’ because, not only is it an awesome glitter bomb but it also has glitter in the name.
The Glittering Crowd has over 100 different kinds of glitter in it, so it is the perfect ‘glitter’ themed polish.
Because the theme is glitter, I figured it should be layered over some glitter too and since I was wearing Avon Sequinned Turquoise at the time, I decided I would just stick with that.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello everyone.

China Glaze Sweet Hook with China Glaze Gothic Lolita for the tips.

This is Sweet Hook by itself.

Here is the mani.
*PLEASE NOTE* I forgot to take picture of this mani. This pic was actually me attempting to take a picture of the bite on my middle finger. But luckily you can see the polish.

Excuse the swollen middle finger.

Aussie Nails Monday - Birthday

Hi everyone.
Sorry I haven't posted for awhile. I have been busy doing 'stuff'.
I am hoping to start posting more often when I get a bit more time (who know when that will be though).
For now I have my 'Aussie Nails Monday' Birthday mani for you.Elissa at Lissa’s Polish Addiction came up with the idea for some Aussie blogger to do a weekly nail challenge.It sounded like a great idea, so I decided to give it a go. I am hoping I am able to actually participate more in this challenge than I did in the 'This is Halloween' nail art challenge.

And just before we start - I am aware that I am posting this on a Wednesday but I was busy, so backoff, okay :p

The theme for this week is birthday.
I kind of forgot that I was doing this challenge (I know, what a great way to start).Since I forgot, i thought it would be best to start with something simple and not attempt any nail art.So I decided to just use some polishes that reminded me of 'birthdays'.

I decided on 2 polishes, 1 that reminded me of kids birthday parties and 1 that reminded me of teenage birthday parties.

So, without further adieu, the nails...

Gloss n Sparkle 'Unicorn Droppings' over Ulta3 Lily White on most of the nails.This is the 'kids party' part of the mani. This reminds me of Fairy Bread which seemed to be a staple of birthday parties in my youth. *For those of you not in Australia, Fairy Bread is white bread with margerine and sprinkles (or 100's and 1000's as it is known here) and it is delicious!*
SIDE NOTE - I usually wear Unicorn Droppings by itself (it is opaque after 2-3 coats) but I have used it so much that I am getting quite low and am now afraid of running out. I suppose I will just have to order anothe bottle

On the feature nail, I have Gloss n Sparkle Passion Pop. This is the 'teenage party' part of the mani. I have some fuzzy memories from my teenage years of drinking passion pop (possibly straight from the bottle)at parties. *I was a classy girl.*

I LOVE both of these polishes on their own (I am prety sure Gloss n Sparkle is my favourite indie brand ever) but I wasn't a huge fan of the 2 polishes together.
So I didn't wear this as a full mani.

When I took this off, I did a full mani for the next day. Completely coincidentally, the mani was also sort of birthday themed.

This is Essence 'Party Princess' over Ulta3 'Black Satin' and OPI 'La-Pazitively Hot'.

Thanks for stopping by.
I'll hopefully be back soon.

'This is Halloween' Challenge - Zombie - FINALLY!

So, I commited to doing the 'This is Halloween' nail art challenge a little while back. At the time I was so excited to do it and thought I could keep up with all of the posts.
Unfortunately that wasn't the case and I didn't get around to doing most pf it.

However, there were a couple of halloween manis that I did but didn't post here. So, I decided that 'better late than never' and I would post some of them.

This is the Zombie themed mani. I had some grand plans for this one but ran out of time. SO I have done something quite simple.

I thought these were quite cute. I used Zoya Gemma and a Ma-nish-ma Matte Green. I also used the ELF matte top coat.

See you soon.
