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.

Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls

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.

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.

French Maid Style

If my blog was a pet it would be starved for attention! Posting regularly is something I really need to work on. It doesn’t help that I’m not allowed to wear nail polish at work!

This black polish is Barry M. I picked it up while on honeymoon in London. Like all Barry M polishes it glides on smoothly and only needs two coats. I decided it was too plain by itself though and pulled out my bundle monster stamps. I used BM 316 to create the lacy effect.

If I was to dress up as a French maid for Halloween I would rock these nails with the outfit!

This was one of the last nice days we’ve had here. Right now it’s blustery and a little cold out! Boo!
