Trainer nail art!

DSC03453


Hello!
So I've started the gym and have created a bucket list of what I'm going to do before I die! That's all really, I'm very boring ha-ha!

Anyway these nails are simple ish to do. All the base colours are Barry M, apart from my thumb which is China Glaze. A lot of the photos of etempts of these look better than these but I had trouble with the bottom line on all of them!
However I do like the effect they have!

And that's it! I may have to conjure something interesting to photograph this weekend so i do a more interesting blog teehee!

Thanks for reading!

Liebster award!

Liebster-Blog-Award
Hello!

So I have been nominated for a liebster award by the blogger Purpleowl (Her blog is HERE) I haven't heard of this award yet but after some research here is what I have found:

"The Liebster Award is for bloggers with under 300 followers and the rules of the award is that the nominee must link back to whoever awarded them, write 11 random facts about themselves, answer the 11 questions from the award giver, and then nominate another 11 bloggers and make up 11 questions for them to answer. It's a great way for new and undiscovered bloggers to meet new people, get more followers and find some blogs that they want to follow."


So here are 11 facts about myself!

1: I was born and bred in a town called Rugby (I know a town and a game wowee) and moved to Northamptonshire when I was 13.
2: At the start of year 10 I cut off all my long hair and had short spiky locks. I still regret that decision to this day.
3. I have OCD, anxiety and went through a mild eating disorder.
4: I have travelled to Malta, Spain, Denmark and most recently, Rome in gorgeous Italy.
5: If you haven't already noticed, I love to paint my nails and create nail art and it was only recently I have started to take photos and publicise it.
6: Music is a big thing in my life, I don't know what I would do without it. I have tried all different genres a go and I change my opinion fluently, but at the moment I'm loving Reggae and Drum and bass.
7: I have created a bucket list and am ticking off the things I have done before I die and hope to complete my list before I pop off.
8: I in-line skate and aggressive skate which is both roller skating. I go to skate parks and learn new tricks and skate off half pipes. I also skate long distance as it is really good for your legs!
9: I have seen Katy Perry live, Jessie J, Lawson and been to Ride and Rave at Thorpe park. (Which was crap as the music wasn't loud enough for my liking) All of these I went to see with my best friend and we are going to see Lawson again in March.
10: I love to keep fit and am starting at the gym soon, but I do daily squats and crunches to keep my bum and tummy in shape! I am also getting more conscious of my figure and loosing weight.
11: I am single and bloody loving it!


Here are the questions that were asked to me by Purpleowl

1. What is your favourite colour and why?
Green because it is such a bright and happy colour and is great on eye shadows for me because I have blue eyes!
2. Do you watch a lot of YouTube? If so, who is your favourite YouTuber?
Yes! I LOVE Jaackmaate, Zoella, Sprinkleofglitter, Pointlessblog, Marcus Butler… I could go on!
3. What is your favourite book?
Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella. Its so funny and a really good read!
4. Who is your favourite singer/band?
Oh gosh! Macklemore, Mac Miller and Hoodie Allen are my favourite rap artists. Ghost town, Bastille, The black keys and Chase & Status are my favourite bands. I am also a big fan of James Arthur, Bob Marley and Ed Sheeran. And of course all the people I have seen live!
5. What is your best beauty secret?
Putting white eye shadow on the inner corners of your eye really makes them stand out! As well as white eyeliner below your eye.
6. What is one thing you cannot live without?
My music. When I have my headphones in i have the world out, all the problems go out of the window and the lyrics really get to me.
7. Do you have an obsession?

I have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder which means I have a lot of them! Everything has to be neat, straight and in colour, height or alphabetical order. Even my chips have to be lined up and eaten in height order. There are many more but I shall not bore you of that.
8. What is your favourite song?

The End by Macklemore. Or What would you do? By Bastille. The lyrics. Oh my god the lyrics.
9. What is set as your computer background right now?

Ghost town album cover art of You’re so creepy drawn my Imamachinist. His work is AMAZING I totally advise checking it out! And their songs!
10. What is your favourite sweet/dessert?

Chocolate fudge brownie ice cream by Ben & Jerry’s. Cant be beaten.
11. Where do you hope to be this time next year, both physically and emotionally?

Physically skinny, Emotionally happy.

I nominate Abby Martin (Her blog is HERE) and Kim (Her blog is HERE) for the award. This is because they both do not have many followers and I believe their blogs are so much fun to read!  Here are your questions Abby and Kim!

1. If you could eat anything in the world now, what would you eat?
2. Your favourite place to visit?
3. Prized possession?

Random nail art!

PicMonkey Collage

Hello!

I change my nail polish art fairly regularly but often don't post about it! Either because I cannot be bothered, or I don't know what to say about it or I just don't like it! Here are two I have done recently but not posted yet!

DSC03409

Firstly I deeply apologise about the polish at the side of my nails! I think its such a hassle and almost always take pictures straight after painting them so I don't take of the polish till later! Bad blogger! *slaps hand*. Anyway these were very simple to do, just orange nails, you can see what to do in black on all fingers, and then Garfield's face on the thumb. I didn't get on with these nails as I don't think the colour suits my skin tone but give them a go they are cute!

These are the Minions from the film Despicable Me, and I think these are adorable! I smudged the eye on my pinkie but cleared up the out side of my nail woo! These were easy to do with black nail polish on a yellow base with blue tips! Just so cute!






















These are Winnie the Pooh nails! Very simple to do with blue backgrounds and original Winnie the pooh pictures such as the bee and the flower! The thumb was my friends inspiration of birds in a cloud. I took this on my phone so sorry about the quality I must have forgot to take a proper picture on my camera!

Thanks for reading!

I love these simple nails, as do i love Ben & Jerry’s ice cream! I was debating putting some mini brownies or mini cookies on my nails, so if you want something a bit more fancy and original try that!

I took some photos in the snow on my camera i use to photograph my nails so it isn't the best quality but the view out of my window is stunning, especially in the snow so i thought i would share them with you!
Thanks for reading!

Film strip nail art TUTORIAL!

DSC03393
Hello!

I can hear old women fainting and little screaming at the fact I am uploading a day early and I have done a tutorial! Okay maybe not but I'm super exited anyway. I got inspiration from a Youtuber called Packapunchpolish and of course mine aren't even as close to amazing as hers but I've given it a good go and am very happy with the outcome! Without further a do here's the tutorial!

1) DSC03364
Here's my nails to start off with. My base coat is by BarryM. Wait for this to dry.

2) DSC03366
Then coat your nails in a white polish. I used Number 7 but I need to get a new bottle as its very streaky.

3) DSC03370
Using a black polish and a small brush, do a line at the top and bottom of your nail like shown, and lines randomly in-between at these will be the strips. As you can see I don't do lines very well!

4) DSC03373
Fill in these black lines a the top and bottom with small rectangle white shapes.

5) DSC03377
I didn't have time to take a picture after every colour, but starting with the yellow polish, blend to green, to light blue, to dark blue, to purple, to red and finally orange. This is done by painting the colour on hold your nail, the next colour on the other side of your nail and mixing the colours in between, or if that's too difficult, put a black line in-between like strips! (Cheat!)

6) DSC03371
While waiting for it to dry you can admire my cupcake pyjama bottoms from Primark!

7) DSC03398
After wiping the most of the polish of the sides of your nails, add some subtle glitter to the colour, and after that's dry coat with transparent coating because otherwise it will run off!

8) DSC03396
I added a Disney Mickey mouse ears to my thumb. I don't know why. Spur of the moment. Don't judge me Winking smile

DSC03393
And that's it! I think they look super cool however unprofessional I am ha-ha! If you have any ideas for me to do don't forget to comment below and I will reply! Thanks for reading!

P.S. This is why I don't photograph my right hand! Its like a disaster zone on there I don't know how I do it, just talent for mucking up that hand ha-ha!DSC03400
