New Year Mani ♥

Hi guys ! Can you believe that it's the last weekend of 2012 already ? This year has certainly flown by !!

Today I'm sharing my fun new years mani. Personally, I LOVE sparkly nails on new years eve, and what better nail polish to use than my Christmas prezzie to myself - China Glaze Glistening Snow. For the accent nails , I used Tip Top Black Forest, and stamped with Konad Special White polish and Konad Plate M65 .
I'm just in L.O.V.E with this design ! This is my first mani using the Konad stamping plates, and I'm impressed. ♥ Glitter polish is essential for New Years in my books. And the design is so fun, yet gorgeous at the same time !!

My good friend Ghila from Nails Noob also posted her twin post already for her new years design ! Please go check it out too. Her design is SO gorgeous, unique and FUN !! Nails Noob New Year Design .

Who has any new year resolutions they want to share ??

My entry for Chit Chat Nails Skittlette Mani ♥

Hi guys ! Hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas so far, and that Santa brought you lots of special goodies ♥

Today I'm sharing my entry for the contest Marta from Chit Chat Nails ran a while back. You had to design an awesome skittlette mani . She got 44 entries in total , and though I didn't win, I had so much fun with this design ! Check out the other designs too Chit Chat Skittlette Mani's .

I really adored this mani, was so sweet and innocent. I used Tip Top Oh La La, Avon Fuchsia Feel and Tip Top Grape to meet you. The dots are Avon Matte Black, and the ribbon a water decal with a random rhinestone I used.

Did Santa bring you anything really awesome this year ??

In Memory of the Sandy Hook Victims Mani ♥

Hi guys ! Hope everyone is enjoying the festive season so far. :)

Today I'm showing you my shorter nails too. Nicole from Nail Polish Wars had such a great point I have to admit after the Sandy Hook Elementary Shooting , as another nail blogger, you sometimes freak out if a nail breaks (ESPECIALLY on your blogging hand ). She also made her nails shorter , as losing your nails doesn't even compare to those moms and dad's losing their precious children.

As tomorrow being Christmas, I felt I needed to post a mani on my shorter nails too in support of the parents and loved ones of those killed in the shooting. I used two coats of Tip Top Fairy Dust, and made a little Green dot on every nail with Tip Top We have an agreenmint .

My fellow blogger at Nails Noob, also posted her naked nails, pop over to her post too and check it out. Here is the link to her blogpost - Natural-how-mommy-made-them-nails .

Here is my mani -
If you also made a Memorial post on your blog, feel free to leave the link , will check it out too.

I hope everyone will have a fantastic Christmas tomorrow, I'm taking a little blogging break until Friday, so there won't be a post this Wednesday, but I will showcase some awesome New Years Nail art with my blogging friend Dujour from Nails Noob.
Christmas Wishes !

Christmas Tree Mani ♥

Hi guys ! This week just flew by ! Hope your Christmas shopping is done by now, I just need to wrap all the prezzies still , then I'm all done♥

Today I'm showing you my mani I will be rocking this weekend. I started off with one coat of Tip Top Traffic Light (the most gorgeous red nail polish in my collection ) and then taped off to create my tree with Tip Top Super Trooper. I decorated the little tree with Amour plate (silver ) and Astronaut (blue ) dots. Isn't it just gorgeous ? -

Isn't this just too cute ?? I just love the simplicity of this mani , really is the perfect Christmas colours to rock this time of year. ♥

I will still be blogging next week  , but for those who are going on holiday today, stay safe, and enjoy the festive season . ♥ Christmas wishes from me and my little guy .

Pink Skittlette Mani ♥

Hi guys ! What a busy week it's been so far ! Hope everyone is getting into the Christmas spirit by now !!

Today I'm sharing my pink skittlette mani with you . So some of you might ask what a skittlette mani is. Here is Marta from Chit Chat Nails definition . Chit Chat Nails
Skitt * lette : a manicure consisting of two, or three, different accent nails on each hand.

I entered my purple version (which I will post a little later on in her Skittlette contest ) . This is my pink version I created over the weekend. (Even rocked it to the family breakfast over the weekend too ! )

For my Pinky I used -  Nubar Essence
Ring finger - Avon Matte Black (with top coat of course )
Rest of the nails - Tip Top Pink About Us
The kitty was done with a smart nail template, wasn't really in the mood to draw something freehand .

What do you guys think of this mani ??  I love how girly it looks with the different designs ! ♥

As you might have noticed on the sidebar, the blog now has a twitter page too. Please go follow me there too , the facebook page as well as my Instagram page is still work in progress, but will be up and going before the new year ♥

Avon : Soft Violet

Hi guys ! Hope everyone is still enjoying the long weekend. ♥ And if you are back at work today, hope you still enjoyed your weekend.

Today I'm showing you the third and last polish in the Avon Suede collection. This one is a dark Violet colour and is called Soft Violet.

I have to say one thing - of the three polishes in the range, this one was the hardest to remove for some odd reason, but other than that, it was still a great polish. I loved the shimmer of the colour too.  Shown is three coats of Soft Violet (again without topcoat to show the uniqueness of this polish )
Yet again another gorgeous colour ! I REALLY like these suede polishes, got such an unique look and feel to them.

Again, these polishes are available from Avon for only R29,95 each !
Such a bargain for such a stunning nail polish .

Avon : Blue Royale

Hi guys ! Can you believe that it's weekend again already ?  This week went by so quickly !

Today I'm showing you the second polish from the Avon ColorTrend Suede collection. This time it's the blue polish called Blue Royale. It's such a pretty shade of blue polish and again, gives a denim vibe feel ♥

I used three coats of Avon Blue Royale in the photos below -
Again I love the suede look of this polish, REALLY gorgeous. And photos are again all without top coat to show the uniqueness of this polish , it does limit the life of the nail polish though, but for such shades, this wears quite well. ♥

These Suede Avon ColorTrend Nail polishes are R29,95 each, and perfect for any summer party ! ♥
