Hello lovelies,

 

It's the last day of the A England week and today I'll show you nail art and I have a giveaway for you! Let's start with the nail art..

 

As you know I love floral nail art designs and I wanted to do some watercolour effect again. The A England Let Me In is my favourite shade so I'm using two coats as a base. Then I painted the  flowers using watered down white acrylic paint and Pure Color liner brush that I got from What's Up Nails.

I quite like how the flowers came out and the subtle holo peeking through the petals. What do you think?

Hello lovelies,

 

I have a weekend treat for you in the form of new video tutorial for today's Marbled & Framed nails! I wore these nails to the Barry M event last month. People seemed to like it (or at least what they could see because it was very dark in there) and fellow blogger Amelia (xameliax) wanted a tutorial so here it is!

 

Let's have a look at the nail design I'll be creating first..

Don't be scared, I didn't change my nail shape completely! :D This is my right hand where I'm currently testing round/almond nail shape whilst still having square shape on my left hand (as you'll see). I've chosen to do this design specifically for the almond shaped nails but liked it so much that I've left it on and did it on my other hand for the event. So basically you get a unique chance to see the same design on two nail shapes ;)

For this look I have been testing the new range of Accessorize polishes and their top coat. There are 39 new colours in total (incl. top coat and matte top coat) and they range from pastels and brights to glitters and metallics. You can see all colours here in my post.

 

I have used:

OPI Natural Nail Base Coat

Accessorize Deep Sea (dark blue shimmer)

Accessorize Blue Suede Shoes (medium blue creme)

Accessorize Heavenly (pastel blue creme)

Accessorize White Out (white creme)

Accessorize Top Coat

Embellishments (pearls adn crystals) from Born Pretty Store (use LUHH10 for $10 off)

 

And here's how you can achieve this look:
