Since I didn’t die at the dentist (had another wisdom tooth pulled) today I guess I can sit down and show you the nails I did a couple of days ago.
For these I used Sally Hansen Nail Rehab and Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu! as base coats.
I applied a coat of Essie Sugar Daddy, a coat of Glitter Gal Galaxy Holo Top coat and HK Girl fast drying top coat on my thumb, middle and ring finger nails.
Then I applied two coats of piCture pOlish Kryptonite on my index finger nail and two coats of O’Hara on my pinky nail and topped them with HK Girl top coat.
After the thumb, middle and ring finger nails were completely dry I placed NailVinyls chevron vinyls on the middle of my nails and used the two piCture pOlish colors to paint next to the cuticle and the tip of the nails. This style was inspired by one of Sloteazzy’s manicures I saw in IG. Obviously the colors I used are completely different but either way I got an idea for this chevron manicure from her :)
I let the polish dry again and then I used a thin nail art brush from Born Pretty Store (review coming up) and white acrylic paint to free hand the snow flakes on my nails. I sealed the nail art in with another coat of HK Girl and done!

Happy hump day! For me it’s not so happy since I’m having my wisdom tooth pulled later today :/ But for the rest of you I have a pretty manicure to show (even if I say so myself) and news about Glitter Gal Australia flash sale :)
So let’s start with the manicure. For this manicure I used:
Index and pinky: a coat of Sally Hansen Nail Rehab and two coats of OPI Jinx Liquid Sand.
Middle and ring finger: a coat of Sally Hansen Nail Rehab, a coat of Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu!, two coats of Glitter Gal creme Nuddy Nude and HK Girl top coat.
For stamping I used XL plate O, gold Konad special polish and Mavala 106 Orange Fusion from their summer 2014 collection.

Today I have some nail art (or fail art) done with Glitter Gal polishes I showed you on my last post. This idea looked a whole lot different in my head LOL I think I’ll do some nail art with these polishes again since they go together so well. I already have some ideas but I’m down with a flu and just had no energy to redo this manicure right now.
I used Glitter Gal Australia’s She’s Cactus, Lizard Belly, Galaxy Holo top coat and Gloss Boss top coat plus Art Club gold nail art liner for this manicure.

Since I got to try the Glitter Gal Big Smoke polish from their Holiday in OZ collection I decided to use it as a base for a different kind of Holiday nails design. I also got some pretty pink bows with rhinestones (#K242) from Born Pretty Store to try out. I added some silver micro-pearls and rosy pink studs to the mix and this is what I came up with. I guess if you use your imagination you can call this some kind of gift package with flashy bling bling decorations design ;)
Who says Holiday nails always need to be red-green-gold/silver :P
The bows are metallic and easy to attach on the nail. They are curved instead of flat and therefore follow the shape of you nail better. I quite liked these! This time I just used a top coat to attach the decorations since I wanted to be able to remove the bows easily and stash them away for another use. If you want them to properly stay on your nail I suggest you use nail glue (tip glue) on top of your manicure to attach these bows. They are quite big and won’t stay on for long without proper glue. Just remember never to glue any decorations straight on your natural nail. Always make sure you have a few coats of polish between your natural nail and the glue.
You can buy these bows from Born Pretty Store and they also have a wide range of other nail art supplies. Born Pretty Store offers free worldwide shipping. Please use the code “NZL91” when you order and get extra -10% discount.
