Bronze Blossom

Yes I have been buying yet more polish (tee hee hee) I used the inspiration for this mani from another blog (my brain will not remember who though!!) There's was a pale cherry blossom, and I changed that because I fancied a dark colour, this is Barry M's 'Dusky Mauve' which can I just say is beautiful! 

The pics do not do this colour justice, on the shelf it looked what I would call a dark mushroomy colour but you pick it up and there's a gorgeous purple shimmer shot right through its. I shall try to get some better pics of this. 

 So on my thumb and ring fingers I added a little nail art. I used my nail art brushes (i.e. no names) for this, 1 was a pale brown shimmer and the other a bronze shimmer. I just traced a random branchy line for the tree lol and then used my dotting tool to create the flowers. For the centres I used Leighton Denny's Urban Retreat 'Priceless'

All topped of with a little SV.

Shoes, Dress and Nails

Hi sorry It has been a while, lots of things going on this past week, its just flown by! My last couple of posts were in preparation for the Ladies Night I attended the other weekend, and so this one is my manicure, dress and shoes for the night. As I was asked by one of my followers I thought I would add in my pics of shoes (my favourite obsession!) and my dress. 

They were lovely =) The picture of me however was not, it was just before my camera died so it was the only pic taken! Hence the funny face and my fingers in a bunny ears shape!!! 

Okay onto the nails. I had already tried out the technique in a previous post so this was just the final mani for the night. I used the same colours for my toes, which were black, silver holo glitter and Barry M's 'Raspberry'. For the base I used Essence Jelly Baby 'Cotton Candy' with a topcoat of Orly's Prisma Silver.

 I added a pinky red rhinestone to the tip corner of each nail.
