Had my nails like this for a night out last weekend as they kind of matched with the top I was wearing.

Recent new additions
I’ve been slacking on updating this. Just haven’t had time to do anything all that interesting to my nails and when I have had the time to do it, I haven’t had time to put it on here. So I’ve got a few queued and here’s some recent additions I’ve made to my collection. Oh and I have no idea why Tumblr keeps rotating those last three images but I can’t for the life of me figure out how to stop it -_-
New polishes (I think that’s it but there may be more I’ve forgotten!)
Left to right:
Edamame by Models Own, Purple Passion by Rimmel, Sun Downer by Rimmel, 170 by Lacura (I think it’s called Rose something but doesn’t say it on the bottle, only the box, which I’ve thrown away), Silver Foil by Barry M, Gold Foil by Barry M, Carnival by Technic, Jet Black by Tecnic and Mermaid by Technic.
Mermaid is gorgeous so here’s a close-up.
Also I bought a few Fimo canes which I haven’t had a chance to use yet, and some cute stickers as well.
And New Look have launched a new beauty range so I got some of their nail transfers to check out. Will maybe wear them for a wedding reception I have next weekend :)
I bought a few rolls of striping tape about a month ago but they’re coming from China and still not here, but I hope it hurries up because I really want to try it out! And I bought some square gold studs last night but again, coming from China so might take a while!
Nicki Minaj Minis swatch
Ignore the fact that the box says “Metallic 4 Life” - the glitter I actually got was Save Me. They really are mini!
I used two coats for Fly and Did It On ‘Em, three coats for Pink Friday and one thick coat of Save Me on top of two coats of Calvin Klein’s French Tip White.
Just did this but I’m not entirely happy with it so I’ve taken it off. Was a bit too messy - I need some finer nail art brushes. It was fun though!
Unnamed bright green by Barry M
St. James by Nails Inc
Devonshire Row by Nails Inc (LOOOVE this colour)
Serpentine by Nails Inc
Looby Lou by Technic
The nails I had for my interviews on Saturday. I intended to go a bit more neutral and plain buuuuuuut I couldn’t. I got a wheel of rhinestones a couple of days before and was dying to try them out, and as I was wearing a navy dress with black tights and heels, I figured this would work perfectly - not too plain, gave me a chance to try out the rhinestones and it fitted with my outfit.
The colour is Serpentine by Nails Inc (I’m a little bit in love with it right now, I want to wear it all the time!)
I’ve got interviews all of Saturday so I’ll have to have my nails something pretty neutral and smart, so I thought I’d do something fun for this week!
I just tried to find the original picture which I got the cute pig design from but I can’t find it anywhere..
Mint Mojo by Collection 2000
Disco Pink by MaxFactor
Fairy Cake by 17
Black Lace Creme by NYC Color
I’ve been looking for the perfect chocolate brown for ages and this is it. Revlon’s Chocolate Truffle. Ughhhh I’m in love with it! I so wish I hadn’t put the gold glitter on top but hey, whatever. The gold glitter I used was Collection 2000’s Shimmy Shake.
Just a quick polka dot design on my mum’s nails :)
I use MUA’s Shade 5 for the base colour, then Collection 2000’s Mint Mojo for the polka dots.
