Month: November 2014

I couldn’t let November go by without doing Movember nails. The Movember Foundation gets men to grow mustaches during November to raise awareness and funds for men’s health programs.

For these nails, I used two Bliss Polishes from Powder Perfect. I used White Hot on my ring finger and Jax on the rest. Both polishes are a matte/satin formula so they dry quickly. They look lovely by themselves but I love the shimmer that you can see when top coat is added. On the ring finger I added a Born Pretty Store Mustache Charm using nail glue. It was really easy to apply and stuck well. I needed to use acetone to remove it after a couple of hours when I got sick of it poking the surrounding fingers.

On my thumb I used this cute water decal from Born Pretty Store. To apply, I put it, with backing, in warm water for 20 seconds. Then slipped off the backing, placed on nail and topcoated. I use water decals a lot as it’s a simple process for such a cute look. You can get 10% off your Born Pretty Store order by using ALAX31 at checkout.

Did you do anything to support Movember this year?

This post is so overdue. I have been writing it for months but my brain has only had very short periods where I have been able to make sense in this post. My lovely boyfriend will edit this post before you read it so it should all make sense (fingers crossed) but if you have […]

Yesterday was Remembrance Day, where we take a minute of silence to remember those who died or suffered for Australia’s cause in all wars and armed conflicts. I always include animals in my minute of silence as they have always played a big part in wars (and still do today). Powder Perfect WIth My High […]

I am doing #untriednov with some instagram ladies (it’s where we use techniques or polishes that we haven’t tried before). So I thought what better way to start than with a water marble or gradient using China Glaze Off Shore polishes. The water marble was a complete disaster so I thought I would try a gradient […]

Halloween isn’t a big deal in Australia but I still wanted to have some fun and paint my nails to fit the theme. I don’t like doing black nails so I found a way around it.  Femme Fatale Time for Slime and China Glaze White on White Femme Fatale Time for Slime and China Glaze […]
