Nails of the Month – December 2014 & January 2015

Nails of the Month

December 2014 & January 2015

Okay, this is combined post for my manicures from December 2014 and 2015. I’ve had to take an unplanned break from my blog due to ongoing computer and internet problems. I had a load of end of the year posts planned, but then my computer played up and I lost everything, including all my photos and drafts and lists of how many nail varnishes I’d used in 2014, which one had now featured on my blog etc and I just haven’t had the time to redo any of them. 2015 is going to be an incredibly busy year for me, so I’m probably only going to be posting one a week or once a fortnight for now. But on to the nail varnish. I don’t have photos for many of these as unfortunately they all got deleted and those I do have are pretty bad ones took on my mobile, but they’re better than nothing right?

So firstly, back at the beginning of December I wore Dollish Polish’s These Aren’t The Droids You’re Looking For over Barry M’s Gold Foil.

Nail Varnish Collection – Sephora by OPI – Summer 2014

Nail Varnish Collection

Sephora by OPI

As Of Summer 2014

I’m determined I will get this collection series finished at some point. We’re coming to the brands I only have a handful of now. All other posts in my Nail Varnish Collection series can be seen here. As I mentioned in the Butter London post in this series, any brand I have five or more nail varnishes off is getting there own post. And Sephora by OPI just sneak in to that category. I bought all of these on eBay or amazon and they were definitely influenced by two of my favourite YouTubers, Lindsay Does Nails and Miss Holly Berries. So on to my Sephora by OPI collection, this is probably going to be a short post.

Nail Varnishes That Haven’t Featured On My Blog – April 2014

Nail Varnishes That Haven’t Featured On My Blog

As of April 2014

So, I was sorting through my (extensive) nail varnish collection the other day and ended up compiling a list of nail varnishes I have that have never featured on my blog. This means they haven’t been named in any Nails of the Month, Nail of the Day, Nail of the Week, Nail Art or Top Five posts. I haven’t used my nail varnish collection series posts in this as these only contain bottle shots and I haven’t actually used the nail varnishes for those posts.

I’m really enjoying working my way through my list of Products I Want To Finish In 2014 and I decided I wanted to do something similar with my nail varnishes. I have over 100 nail varnishes in my collection which haven’t featured on my blog, but considering the size of my nail varnish collection and looking at it percentage wise, it’s actually not all that many in the grand scheme of things. And just because they haven’t featured on my blog does not mean that they haven’t been used. Many of them I will have worn on my toes, or they have featured in nail art but if I haven’t done a specific post for that nail art look then they may not have been named in the subsequent Nails of the Month post and some pre-date my blog and have been used extensively before I started blogging.

The first look I wore in December was this Christmas Tree Lights nail art design. The base colour I used was Essie’s Mojito Madness. For the electrical cord I used A-England’s Camelot and for the colourful lights I used H&M’s Lime, H&M’s Summer Sunrise, H&M’s Pale Violet, H&M’s Nail Him, Sinful Colors’ Misty Red and Natural Collection’s Hibiscus.

Nails of the Month – November 2013

Nails of the Month

November 2013

The first nail varnish I wore this month was Lac Attack’s Beauxbatons Academy. With it being white with some glitter I thought it would be perfect for winter approaching as it reminds me of cold winter days. I am totally in love with this nail varnish, the formula was brilliant and it covered perfectly in two coats. I’ve eyed it again a couple of times this month wanting to put it back on but somehow managed to resist. I doubt it’ll be long before I wear it again though.

The first nail varnish was Zoya’s Nikki. This is one of my newest Zoya nail varnishes but I can easily seeing it becoming one of my favourites. I used Sephora by OPI’s Looks Like Rain, Dear to create an accent nail.
