Ikat Heart Nail Art

Hello there lovely people. I can no longer look outside as light reflects off the snow and it's extremely bright :P I'm so happy with today's manicure, it's really cute. I've attempted these before though and they ended in utter failure. I mentioned this in a previous post that I had a nail fail that I was really annoyed about. Well that was it, but this time it did not fail. I took inspiration from Bad Luck Barbie cause it's a lovely manicure she did.

Though I much prefer long nails, designs look cute on shorter nails. I like the ikat print in general, it's more "rough", so I'm a fan of this. I just think it's really cute, and I love all things cute. The lil' hearts, ok I think it's cute, we get it :P I also love that black and white glitter. Oh and I love pink too.
Pink: Orly - Basket Case
Light Pink: Barry M - Strawberry Ice Cream
Black: Lovely Me:Ex - Black
White: Models Own - Snow White
Black and white glitter: L'Oreal Color Riche  - Confetti
Strawberry Ice Cream is extremely difficult to use, it's been that way for a while but it hasn't improved. It's very very gloopy (I have had it for a while though), getting a coat on the nail is really hard. But it's my only pale pink so I work with it. I used 3 coats and had bubbles, could have been due to thick coats but there was no other way to get the polish to work. Another thing to mention is that even though Confetti is awesome, it's really difficult to remove, of course there's the tin foil method, but if you're not using that it's hard.

In other news I have watched 3 films in 2 days. And I can't cope, I am such a hopeless romantic (works with the hearts in the manicure). I love chick flicks, even though it's pretty much the same every time, I LOVE it every time. There was Sky High yesterday, which is SO CUTE that I couldn't handle it. It was also quite a quirky film which is my thing. There were superheroes and they incorporated the pop art style and I love that. I watched Toy Story 3 today and that is one great film, Pixar can do no wrong. Finally this evening I watched Miss Congeniality, and yeah I love chick flicks and it was wonderful. I was in a chick flick mood tonight, it's when the girl and the guy get together I feel like crying cause it's all so cute :') Sorry that was on my mind and I love movies, I need more.

Thank you very much for reading (and if you read my movie rave, good on you) and have a wonderful day!!! :)


  1. I just love this! It's different from the other ikat, it's cool.
