The Stripey Moon!

Hey girls!

I haven't blogged in about 5 days, I've been away because I has laser eye surgery on Thursday and since then I've been "resting! my eyes! Not really resting them if i'm blogging, but I couldn't stay away! I missed painting my nails, replying to comments and checking out everyone's content!

I did something really simple on my nails since my eyes are so sore!

What better than a simple half-moon mani that I've been addicted to doing :D 

I love texture as you all know, so I really wanted to use this one by Barry M :)

Can't go wrong with wool!

And I had this Instagrammed earlier :)

What do you think!? I love how this turned out :)

Thanks for reading!

Bye for now!

Hey girls!

As you ALL know glitter is a pain in the sweet ARSE to remove and I have seen ways to make it simpler by using PVA glue or using the foil method...but seriously!? There is one glitter topper I would make an exception for and that is NYC - Lights, Camera, Glitter! I dont give two tosses when I have this on! I dont care about removal of the polish because I never ever wanna remove it!

As you can tell I am pretty PASSIONATE about this polish and I've topped it over a lot of colours :D LOL

The base colour I have on is KIKO - 389 which is a wonderful minty colour! I mean like what better combonation!?!??! (need to calm down!)

Here are le piccy's!

Dang, I love this glitter!! As you will see in future posts I have gone crazy topping this over various colours :) lol

What do y'all thinkies!?

Thanks for reading!

Bye for now!!

Barry M Gelly Gradient!

Hey All!

Today I have a simple manicure for you all to drool over! I've created a simple gradient using the two Barry M Gelly colours I recently purchased. Two of my current favorite colour, Keylime and Mango :D

Check out the swatches and reviews for Mango HERE and for Keylime HERE!! 

I combined both colours to create a gradient, I find gradients kinda tedious because whenever I do it I never get a good gradient effect or I mess it up somehow!

Here it is <(") <---- Penguin lol 

It came out okay, but could have been more gradienty :P lol

What do you think of gradients?!

Thanks for reading!

Swatcher - BarryM Gelly's - Keylime!

Hey Girls!

As you all know I love the colour green loads and I've mentioned that a lot! I have literally found my perfect green :) And its Barry M's new gelly summer polish, the colour Keylime!!!! OMG best green ever!!

I find it a bit streaky if the first layer is thick so I applied a thin coat then a thicker one to give a better coverage! Love the shine I get when its fully dried!

Here are my swatches :)

Cute neon green crochet heart :)

Seriously in love with this green, its my all time number one Barry M colour as well as my favorite green!

What do you think of the Barry M Gelly's??

Swatcher ~ Barry M Gelly's - Mango!


I'm currently sat waiting to go out, i'm all ready for a dinner party tonight and my mum's taking so long to get ready! Making use of this time to blog :)

Today I have for you all my view on the new summer Barry M Gelly - Mango. A super lovely orange colour and I am so glad to have it! It's my favorite orange I own and I only own 3 hahaha!

I have two coats on because it is super pigmented and you could totally pull off 1 thicker coat, I just did tow thin coats :) drying time is fast but not as fast as I like!

Here are le swatches :D

And here it is with the octopus I was crocheting :)

What do you guys think of this colour? 

Thanks for reading

Swatcher ~ Barry M Limited Edition A (Pink)!!

Hey girls!!

It's late night for me and I should really be in bed but i'm in the mood to eat and chock everyone's blog! Oh and post :D

Tonight I have for you guys one of the Barry M Limited edition nail polishes which you can get for free if you spend over £6 which i did of course and bagged it! It's like a neon pink but not so neony...if that makes sense? lol

I have 4 coats of because my nails are so white that it takes that many coats to cover the nail line! but you know what? this damn polish dries so quickly that I could layer it so much! and it gets hard as rock when it really dries out, it didn't even chip no matter what I did with my fingers! This is kind a a first for me :D

Here are the piccy's!

It's actually one of my favorite colours ever!!! Oh and I didnt leave it plain....I did some stamping on top to match the funky lid! and of course with my recent craze I did half moon design!

Like the cute crochet hearts?! What do you think of this design!?

Thanks for reading!

Bye for now :)

Swatcher ~ Maybelline Color Show Polka Dot - Forest Canopy!!

Hey Girls!

I have like 7 posts worth of pictures to edit! That's a damn first, Recently I've been painting my nails a lot! It's a great feeling :)

Today I have the second Maybelline Polka Dot effect polish I bought and of course I had to buy the green one after the pink one (reviewed HERE) and I'm in LOVE >_< I absolutely love this!! 

I have 3 coats on the first is a think coat and the second/third is kinda thick...this doesn't matter since the layers dry quick enough...that's always a plus!! Could be layered over white, but I prefer it like this! It does have a textured finish due to the black and white bits but who cares?! I love texture, keep feeling it up like a nail polish perv :P 

Here are le swatches!

Such a lovely deep green and the black/white bits make it so perfect!

What do you think?!

Thanks for reading! 

Bye for now!

Stars And Hearts!

Hey girls,

Just a random snippet of what I've painted on my nails this week, I have a base colour of Gosh - Miss Mole on which is a lovely light brown! I took a picture with flash on which doesn't really show the true colour but that don't matter! 

A lovely one coater here and it dried super fast which is always a good thing!
I decided to stamp stars on top just for a different feel and I used a nice silver colour :)
The pictures I've taken were done while I was at college and I was crocheting 3D hearts and thought I should totally use it as a prop! :D

And I instagrammed this one :) Follow me on instagram at Akacherry10

Thank you all for reading, what do you think?

Bye for now!
