Review: Nails Inc Baker Street with Rainbow Bar Glitter!

Ok so I love blue polish the mostest but never got around to getting Nails Inc Baker Street until Friday.  That's silly of me cos it's the most perfect cobalt blue that my camera doesn't even know what to do with it.  *I* know what to do though!  Bar glitter stripes!  I heard you like stripes so I put stripes in your stripes, etc.  

Rainbow Circle Glitter Nails, Or, Why You Should Always Moisturise

So I found a new site to be obsessed with, Aliexpress.  There are literally hundreds of thousands of nail art bits and pieces on there - charms, glitter, decals, you name it - all for ridiculously cheap prices.  I sound like a shill but seriously, the stuff on there! I mean, look at this.  Squarely up my alley.  Anyway, I ordered some circle glitter from there, all is good but the reason I'm annoyed is I did not moisturise properly.  So instead of being able to focus on the sparklies, all I can see in these pictures is where I tried and failed to properly photoshop out my dry skin.  URRRGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.  I'm showing you anyway though, even though I'm probably going to have to do this over so it's right.

Annoying Nautical Nails with OPI Umpire Comes Out at Night and Revlon White

OH MY GOD what a pain in the arse these nails were to do.  They don't look it but all the way along, pain, pain and suffering.  First I tried to do white with blue stripes but it looked weird.  Then I did this but the blue and white both bleed, but in different ways.  Then I didn't clean up right and had to spend ages photoshopping the white bits off my fingers.  Just urgh.  Don't even get me started on the anchors.  I've spent like hours on this for no reason, all because I like anchors and stripes.  URGGHGHFGHGHGHGHG.  Just squint when you look at these, ok?  Looks more like how I want it then.

Balls-out Nuts 2: The Hex Nail Charms!

Ok so I loved those nails I did last weekend.  Balls-out crazy pants, rendered me unable to get my shoes and actually woke me up because they got tangled together, and 100% amazing.  These are it.  I'm basically jelly that I can't do them again this week so I'm improvising and applied all my Hex Nail Charms.  So much classier than last weekends' and coincidently the most expensive nails I've ever done.  So yay for sticking all the charms!

HAHAHAH I'M NOT CRAY DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN THESE ARE NORMAL NAILS

Ok so for a while there I wasn't working.  Love that, it's the best, cos sleeping is awesome.  While I should have been using the time to pump out the nails, I used it to go through all 283 pages of the nail art supplies section of aliexpress.com. This site is really amazing, cos it's so cheap.  You can get 10,000 rhinestones for $3.  So I bought a bunch of 3D nail charms.  I then decided it would be a good idea to put them all on at one.  TACKYTIME YAY ADHERE ALL THE THINGS! 

Review: Deborah Lippmann Glitter and Be Gay over OPI I Just Can't Cope-acobana!

If you've seen the pictures of my full polish collection, it's hardly a secret that I like to buy polish.  I'm also quite cheap so that means usually it's the cheap brands that I target.  I don't know what it is, but Deborah Lippmann polishes just keep on being the exception.  First Va Va Voom and now Glitter and Be Gay, they're just so awesome that it's worth paying the extra for them.  Oh wait, they're sparkly, that's it, silly me.  Let's take a look at this sparkly shall we?
