I'm Batty For Halloween!


Hi guys ! Hope everyone had an amazing weekend... Mine was nice and relaxing, just so sad it went by so quickly. Alex is also getting the flu ... So hoping I caught it in time so he doesn't get too sick. 

Today I'm sharing another Halloween mani with you before Halloween on Thursday ... This time it's a moon and bat inspired mani . I'm trying to keep most fun and not too creepy... I prefer fun cartoonish versions on my nails. 

Here's the fun batty Halloween mani -

For this mani I used :
Pinky and Index finger - China Glaze Get Carried Away
Ring and Middle Finger - China Glaze Haunting mixed with a little white polish to achieve a lighter grey . Then I used a fan brush and brushed a little white over it to give it a misty spooky effect. I then used Tip Top Orange You Lovely and Tip Top Black Forest for the bat.
Thumb - Again a mixture of China glaze Haunting with a little white , topped with China Glaze Whirled Away glitter.

Hope you have a fantastic Monday ahead . :)

Hi guys ! Hope everyone is as glad as I am that's it's FINALLY weekend ! This has been a seriously busy week . Alex photos yesterday went fantastic.. Really cant wait to see them in a few weeks. 

Today I'm sharing another Halloween inspired mani with you . I've seen so many awesome Sugar Skull inspired mani's pop up on Instagram and Pintrest , I knew I wanted to try a sweet girly version before Halloween. I have to say I LOVE how cute and girly this turned out...

Here's my girly Sugar Skull Inspired Mani - 

For this mani I used -
Pinky , Index and Thumb - Tip Top Pink About Us
Middle Finger - China Glaze Glistening Snow topped with OPI Servin Up A Sparkle
The Ring finger - OPI Alpine Snow , with Tip Top Black Forest, Tip Top Grape to Meet You and Tip Top Secy Bikini for the smaller dots in the facial features. As well as 2 Fimo purple flowers for the eyes. 

Do you like this as much as I do ??? Have any fun plans for the weekend ???

Booo... To You !


Hi guys ! Hope everyone is having a fun week so far. Mine has been super busy as usual, and Alex has a mini photo shoot tomorrow morning too ... Really looking forward to seeing the photos this year. 

Today I'm sharing my first Halloween mani with you. I really enjoy fun Halloween themed nail art, and will be showing some fun designs again with you this year (and different themed ones than those I did last year )

When Alaina from TheLittleCanvas posted this mani last week on her blog, I knew I had to re-create the look  . Here's the link to her original post - ghost-nail-art-my-first-stud-manicure  Mine does look different but the idea is the same as a wanted a fun idea for ghosts . And whats cooler that little white ghosts on your nails ? Except little white glow in the dark ghosts . 

Here's my version of the mani - 
For this mani I used -
Pinky -  OPI  Stay The Night Liquid Sand
Index and Ring - China Glaze Haunting (matte ) with some orange and purple and 2mm Round Studs from The Born Pretty Store .
Middle - China Glaze Haunting and with the ghost using OPI Alpine Snow and Tip Top Black Forest for his face
Thumb - China Glaze Haunting

This mani did glow in the dark, but blogger is for some reason lighting my photos when I upload them, so will upload them a little later this week . Here's one okay-ish one I did manage to get though.

Have a fantastic Wednesday !

Some Fun with Stamping ♥

Hi guys ! Hope your weekend was a blast ! I really enjoyed the cold rainy weather we had this weekend, was such a nice change from the hot weather we had lately. 

Today I'm sharing a fun stamping plate review. I was instantly drawn to this plate since it has fun ribbons, skulls and nautical themed image, and I can see myself using ALL of these images in the future . My favourites without a doubt are the cute ribbons. I got this one from the KKCenterHK store - Nail-Art-Stamping -Rock-Lovely-Skull-Bow-Rudder-Anchor-Stamp-Template-Plate

What impressed me most was how clear the images stamped. I didn't have any issues with any of the images on the plate, which is a huge bonus. The also picked up on my stamper smoothly and without any troubles.

I created two fun looks with this stamping plates to share with you today. The first one I used a skull and a girly ribbon . The next one was a red and blue nautical look.

Here's the first mani using a skull images as well as a ribbon image to create a fun girly pirate inspired mani -

For the mani I used Loreal Black Swan on all the fingers except the thumb and pinky. For the thumb and pinky I used Nails Inc Marylebone - one of my all time favourite polish I stamped the skull using Konad Special stamping polish in White, and the ribbon using China Glaze Admire. I then dotted the index and ring finger using China Glaze Admire and a dotting tool.

The next mani I created was a nautical themed mani -

For this mani I used OPI Alpine Snow on all the fingers except the thumb and pinky. For the Thumb and pinky I used OPI The Impossible . I then used some striping tape on the index and ring finger and used OPI Get Your number . I them stamped using Essence Black Stampy polish . I love how these images even stamp clearly on a texture polish ! 

This stamping plate can be purchases from KKCenterHK online store here - KKCenterHK .

What look is YOUR favourite ???

Zoya Pixie Dust - Godiva

Hi guys ! Hope everyone had a fun week . I'm so glad it's weekend. Was a busy week and I have another busy week ahead next week . Good news though... Next week I'll start with a few Halloween themed posts. 

Today I'm showing you one of the Pixie Dust polishes from Zoya. This is their texture polish line. I loved the beige/nude one so much I knew I had to have it the moment it came out. I'm a sucker for gorgeous nude polishes.

Godiva is a beige/nude with fine silver glitter. I love how fine the glitters are in these textured polishes, almost like you sprinkled coloured sugar on your nails. I love that this is another texture that you can dress up or down, it's perfect for adding a little fun element to work. It's the second week I was rocking this gorgeous colour at work. 

The formula of this polish was amazing too. A little sheer so needed three coats for full opacity. I love how well these texture polishes wears... Not only gorgeous but amazing wear-time too . SCORE !

Here's the photos of this gorgeous colour below -

Any fun weekend plans ??? Your thoughts on texture polishes ??

China Glaze - Kiss My Glass

Hi guys ! Hope everyone is having a great week so far. Mine is busy as usual.. But I guess it's always busy this time of year . Still can't believe we are in October already ! 

Today I'm sharing another of the China Glaze Autumn Nights collection with you. This is another one I got purely for the name , but that turned out to be a gorgeous colour . 

China Glaze Kiss My Glass is a gorgeous blue-based gun metal colour . This colour is sooo gorgeous ! I love dark grey-ish colours . This is another super opaque colour, I used two coats but could have easily gotten away with just one. 

Here's the photos of this gorgeous colour -

This is another beauty in the collection . Again this is perfect for work or play as well as for summer , sometimes I prefer some dark neutral colours over super neon summer colours.

How has your week been ? Hope the polish name gave you a little giggle .

Breast Cancer Support Mani

Hi guys ! Hope everyone had a fun weekend ! Mine was nice and relaxing , just wish the weekend could be a little longer .

As you know, October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month. This should be an issue very close to our hearts . This is something that can happen to any woman (or man, you'd be surprised to know more men than woman die of breast cancer each year ) So remember, if you ever should feel a change in the shape of your breast, or any change you feel isn't normal, rather have it checked out, to be safe. If it's detected early, your chances are so much better ♥ 

Let me share my Breast Cancer Awareness mani with you -

The colours I used -
Pinky - China Glaze Unrefined
Ring - OPI Alpine Snow with a breast cancer ribbon using OPI If You Moust You Moust and a pink 2mm round stud from the Born Pretty store (Born Pretty 2mm Studs )
Middle, Ring and Thumb - OPI If You Moust You  Moust

If you are doing any posts to support Breast Cancer Month or already did one, feel free to leave me the link (or email / tweet me ) anytime in October and I'll gladly create a link to it.



Here's the links of some rocking ladies showing their support -
