Acrylic Nails | Valentines Day

beauty, diy, nails

I think I say this every time, but I swear- this is my favorite set. Ever. They’re pink, glittery and holographic? Could there be any better combination?

  

For the thumb and ring finger I used a mix bought from Smileys6062 from E-Bay in the shade ‘Tinkerbell’. This mix just screamed valentines, and when I received it around Christmas I already had this in mind! The pictures really just can’t capture the beauty of this, its indescribable.

For the pointer finger I used a clear layer of gel and dabbed on some holographic glitter onto the tacky layer. I then applied two thick coats o clear over top to keep in the glitter and smooth things over.

The middle and pinky finger are a gel polish in a creamy baby pink from sensasionail. Its just a perfect baby pink and can be found in multiple brands. The creamy finish of this polish really sets off the glitter and holo in the other fingers.

I hope you love this set as much as I do!

I’ll be honest, I don’t wear make-up everyday. I would much rather have an extra 10 minutes in bed. This is the exact reason I have a protein shake for breakfast too- but this isn’t a post on how lazy I am. It’s how I do my make up quick, for those days where I feel like I need a little something.

I know I’ve been posting these alot lately so I’ll calm it down- well after this one! I think this has been my favorite set so far, although they didn’t last long but I shall post my tips on how I’d make this last longer and the mistakes I made. These nails are super fiddly but easy.

So recently I have taught myself how to do acrylic nails and I thought I’d start posting what products I have used. Hopefully over the time you will see and improvement in my skills and, maybe even get some inspiration. Over the next few weeks I will post a starter kit in case you are wanting to also start yourself, It’s easier than you think- it just takes time!

Being a Blonde..

For as long as I can remember I have always dyed my hair and changed its colour. I’ve been brunette to blonde to red back to blonde to purple.. You get the idea. Well, for a while now I’ve been blonde and I’ve stuck to it. Although in the near future I am hoping to go grey / lilac.

So I thought Id start a new series, posting once a week. As you can see above It’s called ‘Dare to Wear’ and I’ll be posting mini tutorials on how to pull of bright and obnoxious make-up. Ill be posting tutorials on both lipsticks and eye-shadows, maybe even a few blushes. It’s safe to say purple lipstick isn’t the easiest of colours to pull off, yet for some reason I love them. The brighter the better. After having a play around one afternoon I found a few different make-up looks to compliment rather than clash.
