MANI #44 “FLIRT IN A SKATING SKIRT”

This is actually a mani I had done pre Christmas it forms part of “The Great Ice-Scape” Winter 2016 Collection Gelish collection. I am trying to upload photos of complete collections, with a full swatch post to follow up each collection.

“Flirt In A Skating Skirt” mixed with “Oh What A Knight” makes the perfect winter alternative to Red & Gold nails. 

“Flirt In A Skating Skirt” is a pretty cool toned cornflower blue creme polish. I have to admit I am very fond of blue polishes. It’s a perfect icy blue.

MANI #42 “HEY, TWIRL-FRIEND!”

Hey, Twirlfriend!

Isn’t it the coolest name? This Gelish is from “The Great ICE Scape” Winter 2016 Collection. It’s a warm nude cream, which reminds me a little of “Do I Look Buff?” which is a cooler tone. 

Nudes are brilliant because they don’t show as much re growth but at the same time can be a little boring. So we spiced this set up with some black polka dots.

Super cute!

I really like that the dot’s on her accent nails made this mani pop.

MANI #43 “FIGURE 8’S & HEARTBREAKS”

This beautiful colour is from the Gelish “The Great Ice-Escape” Winter 2016 Collection, and is a dusty mauve cream texture. The perfect transition colour as its not too dark or too bright. I think this is a very easy to wear shade.

It has been very popular the last couple of weeks and I think it will continue to do well until the weather starts warming up.

MANI #36 : LOVE. LIVE. LAUGH

I am absolutely in love this manicure. I used Gelish “Forever Beauty” and “Oh What A Knight!” with black Konad Stamping polish, and a bundle monster plate.

It says “Love. Live. Laugh.” the perfect polish mantra for the New Year. We wanted to keep to nude tones but give a slightly different feature to the accent nail, so I suggested we stamp a quote.

I used the bundle monster BM-405 stamping plate

Today I cut my nails and changed the shape for the first time in about a year, now my nails are short and square. Im looking forward to seeing the new nail trends 2015 will bring. What colour polish are you wearing?

MANI #35: GELISH RED-Y FOR THE FESTIVAL

Red-y For The Festival is a stunning creamy red from Gelish.
It has a wonderful coverage which makes this bright red stand out.

Although this is classified as a Christmas red I think it will be very popular throughout the year, as it’s what I like to think of as a true red. It’s not to pink or too orange. Its a beautiful sexy red, something to make Santa blush…

Would you keep this colour for the holiday’s or dare to wear it all year round?
