Dripping Blood

Hi everyone,
It's almost Halloween! So over this week I imagine a lot of you will be going out for various Halloween events for the build up to Halloween - I've already been to 2! Obviously for the Halloween events I went to I had to do my nails for the occasion!
Here's my design:

I used Nails Inc Luminous Red

31DC: Roundup Post

Hi everyone,
So I know the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge was actually over at the end of September and I finished the challenge a good few weeks ago but I still thought I'd do a little roundup post to summarise the whole challenge. I know I've been a really bad blogger over the past few weeks but fingers crossed I'm back on track now!

Anyway so at the beginning of September I decided to take on the mammoth task of the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge, as well as hold down a job and move into university. To some extent I succeeded as I finished the challenge, but not in the timescale I planned to. Here's a quick reminder of the challenge, courtesy of Sarah from Chalkboard Nails:

31DC2014 Day 31: Honour Nails you Love

Hi everyone,
So for today's inspired by challenge (well, Honour Nails you Love), I decided to do my best to recreate a design by one of my favourite bloggers, Brit Nails. For those of you who haven't heard of Allie or her blog, she is a very talented nail artist. She creates great nails art and her swatches are just stunning - I don't think there's a colour which doesn't suit her long nail beds!
Anyway the design I decided to recreate is one called Geo Lines and here is my recreation:

I used Barry M Gelly CoconutModels Own HyperGel Turquoise Gloss and LA Colors Art Deco Nail Striper in Black

31DC2014 Day 30: Tutorial you love

Hi everyone,
so continuing with my little catch-up I though I'd post the penultimate design in the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - a design inspired by a tutorial you love. As soon as I saw this prompt I knew I'd have to use one of Jessie from Nailed it NZ's tutorials because her designs and tutorials are just amazing!
I decided to go with Jessie's Converse nails (see tutorial here) because I found her tutorial for this design really useful, here's my recreation following her tutorial:

I used  Sinful Colors Island Coral, Models Own HyperGel Purple Glare, Models Own HyperGel Top Turquoise, Models Own  HyperGel Sundress, No7 Stand Back, Sinful Colors Snow Me White , Rimmel I love Lasting Finish Your Majesty and  LA Colors Art Deco Nail Striper in Black

31DC2014 Day 29: Supernatural

Hi everyone,
First of all I'd like to apolagise for not posting the last 3 posts for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. I actually started University tiwards the end of the challenge and with freshers week and enrollment I was quite busy and I didn't have time to edit my posts. I did all of the designs and photographed them, I just didn't edit them and post them. Therefore over the next few days I shall post the remaining posts and a big roundup post towards the end of the week.
So for today's first prompt Supernatural (well day 29th's prompt) I was really stuck for ideas. I decided to go for fairies as my theme, but in the end I wasn't that happy with my result. 
Here is my design:

I used Seventeen Chateau and No7 Nail Striper in Silver
