Valentine's day nails on the sly 😜

Easy 3d Nail Art 

Hello my lovely friends, welcome back to my blog. Hopefully you guys had an awesome weekend? If I'm being honest mines was 79% spent at home. The weather is crap and if my lil fur babies didn't need some exercise and a tinkle, my lazy ass would be in my pjs all weekend. It may not be a suprise considering this is a nail blog ;) but today I'm sharing with you a really easy design. With Valentine's day coming up i thought I'd go for something on that spectrum.

For this look I went for a laid back mani. If I'm being honest reds & pinks aren't my favourite so I'm all for anti valentines and a bit bad ass nails.

So for this look I picked the most obnoxious red in my collection. My awesome sister got me this beaut for Christmas. It's Dior Trafalgar. I have a few issues with the formula as it's really squishy and floods my cuticles but the colour is so vibrant and in your face, that I'm in love. I then added a border of dots for a studded look.

Moving on to the bling, I bought these gorgeous bow dangle charm from Nail Kandy Charms. For my base I started with 2 coats of Mia Laurens sand storm. Then using a black polish I added stripes and a fast dry topcoat. Then attached the charm to the nail using nail glue.

Finally the pinky is just a black base with gold foil. Simple yet I really think it gives various designs a bit dimension. For this look I finished with a glossy topcoat because the matte dulled the red. Probably not everyone's cup of tea for v day but I love how it turned out. It's a design that can be worn any time of the year but still has that right amount of what you need for that big Valentine's date. Here's a quick look at how I did these nails.

As always guys I really hope you enjoyed today's post. Keep an eye out for more upcoming Valentine's day nails. Thank you for stopping by. 
See you next time.

Rose Gold & Midnight Blue Nails using tattoos..

Easy 10 Minute Mani...

Hi guys, welcome back to my blog . Today I have another nail design to share with you. This time it's so easy your kid could ace it with their eyes closed . That's my favourite thing about nail art, finding cool ways to achieve awesome designs everyone can do. So no matter if your just starting out these nails are going to be perfect for you.

Best bit? They require the least amount of products to complete. For my base colour I went with the seriously gorgeous cosmos by picture polish. It's a really dark blue jelly base with tiny microglitter which gives the polish the perfect amount of pizzazz.

  For the nail art I used the tattoos I received in my essence advent calendar. Which was a gift from Natalie in our Christmas gift swap. They were a mix of rose gold and black tattoos with rose gold being the most. I just loved the various images so I opted for a bit of a mix and match.
After cutting out my chosen tattoos I pressed them directly onto the dry base polish. Then holding a wet sponge onto the nail for 10-15 seconds until the tattoo adhered to the nail.
Finally I cleaned up and added a good thick layer of fast dry topcoat to seal in my design.

I really loved how this one turned out. I also took colour inspiration from my really awesome housecoat so this one had a strange inspiration but I think it worked out fab. What do you guys think?
Here's a quick tutorial on these nails . Totally self explanatory but I had fun none the less .

So that's all for this post guys and as always thank you for stopping by. I really hope you enjoyed today's post. Remember if you have any recommendations let me know below.

See you next time .
