Sidewalkers and Skeletons

So I know I said I would be posting more but I have really become the worlds worst procrastinator over the past few months. I end up putting off taking pictures so much that the manicure is off before I can gather any evidence to show that I ever wore it.

However, this manicure I did manage to picture!

I started off with Barbara Daly's Goodbye Yellow base coat, followed by two coats of Sidewalkers by NYC and then Grand Central Station top coat, also by NYC. I then stamped using Shade 23 by MUA and Bundle Monster plates BM-225 and then BM-211 on my accent nails for a slight variation. I topped this off with Rimmel top coat.

I really liked the colours used in this mani, I think they matched the design pretty well and they were nice and unusual, not the kind of colours you usually see on peoples nails! The design was also nice and subtle, not standing out too much.

Thanks for reading!

It Has Been A While..

It has been over two months since I last posted on here! That doesn't mean I haven't been doing my nails, it just means I have been far too busy with uni to take any pictures/spend the usual amount of time on them.  Recently I have just been doing the basic two coats of polish and done, maybe a glitter coat if I'm feeling extra glam.  What has university done to me?!

My two and a half month Christmas holidays arrived in December so I was looking forward to a lot of nail art, especially some Christmasy designs, however I got a seasonal job in Starbucks, meaning I'm not allowed to have my nails painted! Oh the horror!

But now my polish withdrawal symptoms have reached an all time high so I have decided to try and fit in a few manicures every now and then when I have a few days off and I'll try to make more of an effort once I go back to uni.

This was just a little update so you know I will still be sharing my manicures, just nowhere near the frequency I was before (and even then that wasn't a lot!).
