My Recent Nails

Recently I decided that I am not going to use my blog to just post my makeup tutorials, but I am going to use it to post reviews, FOTDs and nail polish fun. So saved some photos this week of my nails. I usually paint my nails 2 or 3 times a week.

Sorry for the dry hands, but I've been working with plaster all week and it sucks the moisture out of your skin like nothing else!

This combo is one coat of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Purple Gala on top of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Black Out. Purple Gala is gold reflects in a purple base.

The next combo is one coat of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Purple Gala on top of  one coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Grape Going.

Finally I tried out the newspaper print technique from videos on YouTube. Jazziebabycakes tweeted a photo of her nails and I had to do it!! It took a little but to get the hang of it, but I think I finally got it on the last nail or two! I used Catrice Cosmetics Am I Blue or Green as the base colour (which is an amazingly opaque polish BTW).

Anyway, I hope to be posted quite regularly as I am constantly experimenting with makeup and nail designs/colours. :)


  1. Oooooooh now I wanna try those newsprint nails!

  3. Love it on the blue :D Where did you find the Catrice polish in Canada? Or did you order it online?
