Nails of the Month – November 2014

Nails of the Month

November 2014

So, once again I’ve worn quite a lot of nail varnish this month. Once again mostly thanks to my peel off basecoat.

The first nail varnish I wore was Lac Attack’s Beauxbatons Academy, one of my all time favourite nail varnishes. You can see my review of it by clicking here.

Nail Art – Children In Need – Pudsey Bear

Children In Need

Pudsey Bear

For anyone not living in the UK, Children In Need is an annual charity event in November each year when people are encouraged to do different fund raising events and donate to Children In Need who then use the donations to help disadvantaged children. Now the mascot for the event is a yellow teddy bear called Pudsey Bear who wears a dotty handkerchief over one eye. There’s also always a TV event, with different acts giving special performances and true life stories. I’ve always had a soft spot for Pudsey Bear, so this year as well as donating my money, I came up with this Pudsey Bear nail art look.

Doctor Who – Death In Heaven

Series Eight Finale

So, Peter Capaldi’s first season as The Doctor has now finished and I decided I wanted to create a nail art look for the season’s finale. If you’ve read my blog for a while you’ll know I’m a huge Doctor Who fan and this isn’t the first Doctor Who nail art I’ve created. You can see my other Doctor Who designs here and here.

Nails of the Month – October 2014

Nails of the Month

October 2014

I have worn so much nail varnish this month! This is partly due to getting the Makeup Academy Peel Off Basecoat (you can see my review on it here) which has meant that I have had time to change my nail varnish after work on an evening. (I am rarely in the house before 6.30 on an evening and leave the house around 7 the next morning).

The first nail varnish I wore this month was Glisten & Glow’s Dancing On Star Dust, a stunning micro glitter.

Nail Art – Frankenstein

Nail Art

Frankenstein

So now that it is October I am no longer classing it as too early for Halloween Nail Art. I went away in October last year and barely got to do any Halloween nail art, so I’m determined to make up for it this year. So the first Halloween Nail Art I’ve created this year are these simple Frankenstein nails. There are loads of tutorials out there for Frankenstein nails, but I thought I’d share my version of them with you.

Nail Varnish Picks – Autumn 2014

Nail Varnish Picks

Autumn 2014

So I’ll wear whatever nail varnish I want to when I want to wear it. But I do find that subconsciously the seasons do influence my choices and I thought of share what I think are going to be some of my favourite nail varnishes this autumn. I just went through my collection and picked out ten nail varnishes, without looking at my other selections and it seems like I’m really into greens and browns this autumn, with a couple of others added in.

This first colour is A-England’s Dragon. This is a true green nail varnish with loads of holographic silver shimmer in it. And like the majority of A-England nail varnishes you can get away with only using one coat.
