Purple Midweek Mani ♥

Hi guys ! Hope everyone is having a great week so far ! Mine has been super busy at work, but I guess it's better than having nothing to do . I really can't wait for the weekend to arrive, it's my mom's birthday on Friday, and we are having the family over on Saturday, so then I can just relax and chill with them ♥

Today I'm showing you a my gorgeous purple skittelette mani I did mostly with Tip Top nail polishes. I wanted something girly to wear , and I was really in the mood to use some purple polishes.

Pinky - Avon Fuchsia Feel topped with Tip Top Drummer Girl Glitter
Ring - Tip Top Grape to meet you stamped with Essence plate
Middle - Tip Top Fairy Dust
Index - Tip Top Fairy Dust dotted with Tip Top French Manicure White
Thumb - Tip Top Fairy Dust
I hope you love this mani as much as I do !! It looks so delicate and girly, and I've gotten quite a few compliments on this one, so it's definitely one of my favourite looks so far ♥

Tip Top : Jazzberry Blue jazzed up ♥

Hi guys ! Hope everyone had a fun weekend, mine was okay, just way to short as always. Anyone do anything fun ?? I'm actually glad about the cooler weather in JHB this morning for a change.

Today I'm showing you another gorgeous colour from Tip Top , this one is called Jazzberry Blue. (Actually all their colours are GORGEOUS !! ). This is a metallic shimmery medium blue, with just enough dazzle ♥

For the photos below, I used 2 coats of Tip Top Jazzberry blue, and jazzed up the accent nail with some blue caviar beads since textured nail polish is a huge trend for 2013. This  is the first time I've attempted these beads too. I was worried the texture of these beads might bother me, but luckily no troubles with them getting caught in my hair or anything (that was one of my biggest worries )

Have you tried caviar beads before in your mani ? I will be showing more textured mani's in the coming weeks, with the China Glaze Texture range as well as the new Tip Top Texture nail polishes. ♥

Mani Against Woman & Child Abuse

Hi guys ! Hope everyone had an okay week. Mine was hectic, and was incredibly busy week too. I feel like a zombie in need of coffee. So REALLY glad it's weekend !

Today's mani is especially for Tip Top South Africa Facebook page challenge. The theme this week was a special black Friday mani in support against woman and child abuse. Sadly, this is something that's a universal problem, and you might even know someone who was abused somewhere down the line. I had a very dear friend get beaten really badly by an ex boyfriend a few years back, it's such a scary thought that it could happen to someone you know. So this mani is especially a dedication to that dear friend of mine♥

For this challenge, you had to have 4 Black nails ( Tip Top Black Forest ) and a White accent nail ( Tip Top French Manicure White ) with a special design on your accent nail. For my design I chose to do a heart with crackle polish( Tip Top Black Crackle Polish ), so it looks cracked and a little broken in support of this cause.
Did you do anything special on this cause ? If you have, please feel free to leave your link and I'll check it out. ♥  Anyone got any fun plans for this weekend ??

*EDIT TO ADD*
The lovely Ghila from NailsNoob joined and posted her mani on her blog too . Here is the link mani-against-women-and-childs-abuse

Pnk & Black Midweek Mani ♥

Hi guys ! How is everyone week going so far ? My week has been super busy, and I'm really not in the mood for today, just feel overtired and in need of some extra energy. And the mosquito's munching me in the evenings are really no fun either.

Today I'm showing you a fun mani I've been wearing this week. I loved the end result of the stamping on the black, really gorgeous .

For this mani I used two coats of Tip Top Sherbet Angel (although in the photos I did notice a little VNL , but it's really not that noticeable in real life ) , and the accent nail I used Loreal Black Swan, and stamped with Salon Express plate 18 and Konad Special White Polish ♥ I love the girlyness and simplicity of this mani -
What colour are YOU wearing on your nails at the moment ? Anyone here taking part in the Black Friday support mani against woman and child abuse ?? I'll be posting mine on Friday on the blog . If you should do a mani too, feel free to email / tweet me a photo, or even leave the link here and I'll gladly check it out on Friday ♥

Have a awesome Wednesday ! ♥

China Glaze : Aquadelic

Hi guys ! Hope everyone had a nice relaxing weekend, I really wish it was just a little longer, still feeling super tired today .

Today I'm showing you another GORGEOUS colour from China Glaze, Aquadelic. This polish has been in my untried bin for way to long , and I can't believe I haven't used this gorgeous colour yet.

It's such a gorgeous teal / aqua colour. The strangest thing was wearing this colour and walking into EVERY clothing shop and finding things that match this shade so perfectly. Jeans, shoes, handbags and jewellery !I was even surprised that it matched a top I was planning to wear over the weekend to a tee ! It also applies so smoothly, I could almost get away with just one coat, although I did use two . It also dried very quickly for such a gorgeous colour too . ♥

For the photos below I used 2 coats of China Glaze Aquadelic, and the accent nail is three coats of China Glaze It's a Trap-Eze ( I still can't believe I own this baby ! )
Isn't this just such a gorgeous summer colour to rock on your nails ??? Or even one on your toes with some gorgeous summer sandals .
How was YOUR weekend  ?

Feather Mani ♥

Hi guys ! So glad it's finally Friday, been a very busy week. I hope everyone is wearing black in support for Rape victims. I sure am doing my part for this cause. It's horrible that any woman has to go through that in her lifetime. ♥

Today I'm showing you a special mani I wore a few weeks back. For this mani I used China Glaze Below Deck, and the accent nail was Seche Colour Simplicity and I stamped with Seche Colour Enamored and Portobello using an Essence stamping plate. I just loved this mani to bits, and so did everyone who attended my little guy's birthday party.

So first off let me share the design that inspired this mani -
And then the gorgeous mani -
The colours are just gorgeous and easy to wear. China Glaze Below Deck is the most gorgeous colour for work and play , as it can easily be dressed up or down ♥ I'm so glad I got this colour for myself as a Christmas Prezzie.

Anyone have any fun plans for the weekend ??
