Mani Monday – Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy

As it gets closer to spring, I have been looking for a light pink nail polish and a pastel yellow nail polish. I saw someone last month with pastel yellow gelish on their nails and fell in love with the … Continue reading

Mani Monday – Water Baby

After taking the gelish off the other day I gave my my nails a well-deserved rest for a week. I love gelish, but it really does leave my nails paper thin so I can’t wear it too often at all. … Continue reading

Mani Monday – black nails inspiration

I still have white nails, and am loving them! Eunice at Sorbet warned me that some of her customers’ white nails stained, but luckily mine haven’t done that. They do look like they may be turning a bit of an ivory colour, but I’m okay with that.

While scrolling through Pinterest tonight I saw some great black manis I would love to try now. I haven’t had black nails in ages so I think before spring arrives I definitely  need to experiment with some of these ideas.

Mani Monday – stripes to dots

photo 3

The colours of today’s mani were inspired by this striped paper. I finally had time to sit and do my nails without being rushed to go somewhere and wished I had a nail art brush so that I could have tried to paint stripes on my nails. I probably could have used some tape but didn’t think of that at the time. Instead I tried out this Essence nail art tool I’ve had for ages and have never even tried out. I didn’t realise how easy it is to put dots on your nails! I can’t believe it has taken me this long to use the tool. My biggest problem is I never have enough time to sit and try new things with my nails. I can’t wait to try it out some more and do patterns on my nails next time. I also felt like some glitter so 2 nails on my right hand have glitter on them.

Mani Monday – Call me princess

I literally can’t stop looking at my nails ever since I applied this nail enamel. It looked pretty in the bottle when I bought it but I had no idea how much prettier it would look on my nails! It’s a Catrice nail enamel called Call Me Princess and believe me I really do feel like I have princess nails with it on. I now need to get back to Dischem to see what other colours they have in the Crushed Crystal range.
