Lacquer Legion - Yummy

Hi everyone,
So today I'm taking part in this months Lacquer Legion Challenge. It's been a while since I've taken part in the Lacquer Legion, things have just got on top of me and I've been very unorganised to say the least.
Anyway so this months theme is Yummy, and for this design the first thing that came into my mind was dessert, but instead I decided to go for something different!

Reverse Ombré Leopard Print

Hi everyone,
So for today's design I was inspired by the talented Sarah from My Mint Nails. Sarah actually did this design back in July and as soon as I saw it I put it on my list of nail designs to recreate! The design I'm talking about is a sort of reverse leopard with a gradient, which Sarah did with a summery pink/orange gradient, which you can see here. I decided to go for a cold colour scheme since were are coming up to winter now. 
Here's my design:

I used Sinful Colors Snow Me White, Models Own Apple Pie, Models Own HyperGel Turquoise Gloss, Rimmel Salon Pro Britpop and Avon Nailwear Pro in Licorice

Coloured Geometric Cut Out

Hi everyone,
So for today's design I actually added something to the cut out design I created on Monday (click here to read the post). Although I really liked the simplicity of the colour scheme I felt like the design needed more colour so I dug out my other 2 HyperGels and added them to the design!
Here's the finished look:

I used Models Own HyperGel Turquoise Gloss, Models Own HyperGel Sundress, Models Own Purple Glare and LA Colors Art Deco Nail Art Striper in Black

Geometric Cut Out

Hi everyone,
So for todays design I decided to attempt a cut out/negative space design. These are the style of nail art where you leave sections of your nail clear so that you can see your naked nail bed. I decided to combine this with a geometric design, here's what I came up with:

I used Models Own HyperGel in Turquoise Gloss and LA Colors Art Deco Nail Striper in Black

It's my Blogiversary!

Hi everyone,
So today is my 2nd Blogiversary! - that's right I created this blog 2 years ago on bonfire night! Happy Bonfire Night by the way! It's crazy to think I've had this blog for 2 years, I remember starting this blog 2 months into my first year of A-levels and now I'm sat in my university room starting me first year at university (how crazy is that?!?). This blog has been a great outlet for me and I've made some great blogging friends along the way too! 
Anyway so for today's post I thought I'd do a little look back over the past 2 years of The Sequined Nail. I got the idea and some of the topics from Roaring Nails and Dahlia Nails who both recently celebrated their 1st Blogiversary (I hope that's okay Emma, Jo and Robin)!

So first of all I thought I'd show you my favourite designs from the past year! There have been quite a lot, especially with the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge!
Here they are:

Models Own HyperGel Turquoise Gloss Swatch

Hi everyone,
So today I thought I'd show you a swatch of one of my newest Models Own Nail Polishes - Models Own HyperGel Turquoise Gloss. As you may know I took advantage of their 6 for £20 offer at on of their Bottleshops a few months ago and purchase my first ever HyperGels (you can read that post here)! When I went into the shop I already knew I needed this nail polish and the fact the sales assistant said it was their bestseller made me want to buy it even more!

This nail polish is a bright bold turquoise and it stands out too! I've been looking for a shade like this for a while so I was so happy when Models Own released it!
