Dragonfly Nail Art

Hey there nail fans, it's a nail art day and while this look is really simple I loved it. Sometimes simple is best, the colours are real pretty too. So I think this was pretty fun and dragonflies are cool. Why they are called dragonflies I'll never know.

It's a super simple look with like black lines and little wings but I really like the uniformity of the whole look. Also teal, white and light blue goes so well together. While it's not crazy I liked the variety of the colour of the wings and the glitter goes well on top!!

I don't even need to write how I painted this but got my black pen/toothpick and tried to space them out, truth be told I should've spaced the dragonflies out better on every finger except my thumb. Then toothpicked the wings on, keeping it even wasn't as easy as it looked. But yeah easy look to paint, but that's a good thing!!

Teal: Barry M - Guava
Glitter: Rimmel - Disco Ball
Black: Lovely Me:Ex - Black
White: Barry M - Cotton
Light blue: Barry M - Sugar Apple

Thank you very much for reading and I hope you have a lovely day!! :)

Gimme Glitter: Maybelline Color Show - Bouquet

Hello!! We have more glitter today, I don't think pictures do this justice cause this glitter is really really pretty. The mix is fabulous, I just love the delicacy of the matte glitter in this.

Bouquet is a glitter topper with small and medium copper hexes and light pink and white matte glitter. It's really pretty. For some reason it kind of tinted my pink base but let's hope that was a one off. Not that I mind anyway cause it's a pretty glitter, I forgive all pretty glitter.

This is my first time trying a Maybelline polish and I like it. I like the glitters in that range, I was going to get one ages ago but managed to convince myself not to buy it #selfcontrolled. But I think their cremes are real nice, maybe worth looking into.

The formula was great, barely needed 2 coats. There was so much glitter so good job Maybelline. It was so easy to apply as well so a girl is impressed.

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day!! :)

Gimme Glitter: Topshop - Adrenalin

Hey there guys!! It's been another while, this has been a recurring theme this year. I say this all the time which I understand is annoying but I feel kind of bad disappearing for large chunks of time all the time haha. So a lot's gone down in terms of relaxing and loving life cause times have been good. I got my AS level results and I'm really happy with what I got. Now I have to sort university stuff -_- I'm just trying to relax as much as possible before everything gets real again. I do like blogging but I suppose I've stuff been doing other things, like movies and meeting up with people.
Anyway I have a glitter polish which I got cause limited edition packaging cause I'm a total sucker. It's very similar to Razzmatazz but that's one of my favourites. But Adrenalin is pink so totally worth it, and the packaging is rose gold cause of Topshop Makeup's 5th birthday, so even more worth.

Adrenalin is a clear pink base with tons of holographic glitter with some bigger holographic hexes. It's real nice but I did the wrong combo. I love me some holographic glitter, not as much as I used to, I have to say I prefer some matte glitter, it's just so colourful o.O

I've always loved Topshop nail polish, they're cremes are the most solid. As part of the 5th anniversary they released some other pretty cremes but nothing really special. I was even debating buying this one cause it's pretty similar to Razzmatazz but the packaging. As I previously mentioned I am a sucker.

I think I used 2 coats (since I've been away for a while, naturally these swatches were done a while ago), there were no formula issues at all. Very easy to apply and tons of glitter. I put this over Barry M Dragon Fruit.

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a nice day!! :)
