Magnetic Attraction…

So it’s been at least a year since I’ve used any magnetic polish. When they first came out I ended up collecting quite a few shades and they were really cool to play with to start, but they  soon became another ‘forgotten’ bottle. Until now! The magnetic polish trend has come round full circle again, with cool new possibilities. Like this magnetic pen which allows the control of the pattern rather than going with the predetermined magnetic sticks (usually wiggles or lines).  I wasn’t too adventurous this time round as I was more curious as to whether it would actually work or not. I’d been told that the stronger the magnet the better the effect, and from just looking at the size of this one when it arrived I didn’t expect much. But I now know size isn’t all that matters, as it seemed to work just fine – I mean, come on the little thing can hold up 4 paper clips! It’s just a shame it’s so ugly….

I love how the polish shifts in colour! I can’t wait to try this little pen out again on some of my other colours. I bought this one when it was on sale, but now that it’s back to full price you can use my code ‘AZYW10’ to get 10% off it and all other full priced items in your order from BornPrettyStore.

ModelsOwn: Second try…

So this is my second entry for the ModelsOwn competition. This time I was inspired by the cable-tie looking spikes poking out of the sash. Maybe a little bit safe and boring considering how exciting the photo is but…

The future’s bright, the future’s purple?…

So I didn’t really know what I fancied doing so I chose a colour first (the purple) and decided to take it from there. After I’d finished painting I thought it all looked quite futuristic! However, I’m not that happy with it – I feel that it could be a design from a few years ago when I was just getting in to ‘nail art’. Maybe I’m just in a negative nelly mood…

Midnight Graveyard…

So this is my first Halloween themed nail art, yaaaay! I just don’t feel spooky. I know some people will judge but I’ve skipped right on to being excited about Christmas, not because I don’t like Halloween it just feels as if it’s not happening this year or something. Our house ‘Halloween’ party isn’t until the 15th of November, but even that’s not going to be spooky as it’s been conjoined with my fancy dress birthday party which is ‘Tropical Island Theme’ and our ‘House Warming’ (even though we’ve been in the house literally months, whoops!)

Anyway,I don’t think I’ve ever painted a graveyard scene so thought it would be a good idea to start with. I decided to make it quite subtle, using sponged purples, glitter coat and then a dark, navy blue for the shadows. I like it!
