Nail Art For Funn’s Family Manicures!!

 

 

 

 

 

I thought I’d share some manicures I’ve done recently. Since I can’t wear polish to work it makes sense to do my mam’s nails and sometimes my aunt’s too!

I’ve actually been painting my mam’s nails since I came home in March. We started with simple colours, then I got her hooked on nail jewels and now stamping! Yay!!🙂

I used OPI’s Barefoot in Barcelona, and red Konad stamping polish with Bundle Monster’s plate 306.

This is a replica of a manicure I did last year. I showed mam the picture and she liked so I recreated it for her (with the nail jewels of course!)

She’s even learning how to ‘pose’!

This manicure was for my aunt. She wanted Autumn colours so we chose a silver Sephora polish by OPI, Social Climber  and OPI’s Tomorrow Never Dies. Love, love, love, this colour, and this combo!

My Aunt was diggin’ her chevrons!

Last week we adventured in lace. Mam chose the colours and loved the result! She thought they looked delicate and ladylike. We used Estee Lauder’s Dilettante and Lilac Leather.

I’m thinking I’ll introduce her to textured polish next, and maybe stripes? What do you think? Let me know!!!

Halloween Stylin’

DSC_0557

 

Here’s my Halloween style manicure. I used thin nail art tape and OPI’s Tomorrow Never Dies along with Barry M’s Black Nail Paint.

I really like how these colours compliment each other. The Black Nail Paint was a dream to paint over the purple and tape. It’s nice and thick without being gooey. Maybe that’s because it’s a new bottle. I’ve had really goopy black nail polish before, it was Sally Hansen brand.

Tomorrow Never Dies is becoming one of my favourite polishes. It’s a really pretty shade of purple. I think it’s nice for nights out, but it could also be a good day time polish for this time of year. It requires at least 2 coats, because there will be bald patches.

Happy Halloween bloggers! xxx

Lace Inspiration From One of my Favourite Bloggers

Hey fellow bloggers,

 

It’s been a while since I posted an actual nail art post, so here’s one for you! I used Casino Royale OPI, and Black Nail Paint by Barry M.🙂

I had searched the internet for inspiration for a Halloween type mani, but wasn’t very inspired. Then I browsed back through one of my favourite blogs which is Trine Marie’s blog and I found this post on lace nail art.

She used different colors, and in my opinion her manicure is much neater than mine, but it was fun trying this out!

I recommend her blog to everyone because she has great fashion ideas, nail art, and is in general, a really interesting person!🙂

Part of blogging is meeting new people and since I’ve been blogging I have to say I have three favourite bloggers. Here are their blog’s that I recommend you check out.

Trine Marie

Cowboys and Crossbones

Short and Sweet in Texas 

Cowboys and Crossbones will have you loling around the floor at her antics and her sweet cat Ted is amazing.

Short and Sweet is amazing for finding cute nail polishes and showing them at their best.

All three of these bloggers are so enjoyable to read I really think they are amazing women. Too often I don’t have the time to blog but these ladies are religious about their posts. It’s fun to see what they are up to, and they often have great ideas that I like to try myself.

 

So, this post is a big thank you to them, for making my blogging experience so enjoyable and rewarding!

My Wedding Album

Hey fellow bloggers,

I decided to share my wedding album with you. It’s only fair since I have been posting various things about my wedding for months now! Also, I know I love seeing other people’s pics, so I hope you enjoy mine. Here’s the link to the slideshow! 

My photographer is a guy called Darren Kirwan. He is sha-mazing!!! He was like a ninja with the camera! Most of the time I really forgot he was there.

Some nail art posts are coming soon, October has been a busy month at work. They don’t allow nail polish either, so that sucks!

Let me know what you think of the album!

It’s Time Nailartforfunn Went NEON!!

I know neon nails has been done but not by me! I never really bothered with that look this summer. I think it’s because I was focused on the wedding and all things french manicure-y. Yes, I made up a word. I do that a lot.

Pic 1 topcoat is OPI’s The Living Daylights, Pic 2 OPI’s The Man With The Golden Gun, Pic 3 MODI.

Yesterday I went into Penney’s (Primark). For those of you who don’t know Penney’s it sells everything from clothes, to shoes, to accessories, and it’s REALLY cheap. I went in to buy furry cuddley socks. I came out with 20 euro worth of stuff! Including these nail polishes. There were actually 4 in the pack but the neon yellow one had turned into a putty, so I didn’t bother with that one.

All four only cost 2.50! Couldn’t pass that up! The bottles are only 6ml and they smell strong when applied. Each polish needed just 2 coats, except the green which needed 3 to cover bald spots.

I’ll be keeping my eyes open for more bargain polishes from now on!

Which one is your favourite? I think mine is the first one. That orange-y tang is quite cheerful!

Here’s a real simple look I did the other evening. I used OPI’s Color So Hot It Berns and a black nail art jewel. I have so many cute little accessories that I need to start using!🙂 The jewel gives the manicure a little more edge I think. It’s also super quick and easy to do.

Between the French Maid looking nails, and these, I feel I’m veering towards Halloween! The stores here are already selling Christmas candy, but no Halloween stuff yet. Which is sad, because Halloween came from Ireland. True story! It came from pagans.

What do you think? You like? Got any other color combo suggestions?🙂

Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls

DSC_0373

Here’s another waterfall manicure that I did a few weeks ago. I chose these colours to match a new dress.

I used;

Modi hardener, OPI’s Fly, Essie’s First Timer, Coverl Girl’s, Glosstinis (yellow), Sephora’s Social Climber, Sinful Colours’ Dream On, and Seche Vite topcoat.

DSC_0333

I love the dress  because the skirt is really light and flows. The top is comfortable and dressy enough for evening wear. I got it in a store here called Pamela Scott’s.

Here’s a close up of the skirt.
