[Week 26: Inspired by a Pattern] Grapey Goodness

Inspired by a pattern! Well, this is actually just a total excuse to use my first wrap from the new catalogue 😛 I have been dying to get this one on my nails since seeing it in previews!

But first, my last ‘inspired by a pattern’ mani, this is one of my favourite patterns ever. I have done quite a few mani’s with this simplistic dotted pattern, but it takes forever trying to get everything lined up, and keeping the dots a uniformed size… OCD nightmare 😦

But this ❤ this was super easy and I am totally in love with how simple yet stunning this is:

The minute I saw ‘Grapevine‘ in the preview of the catalogue I knew it was a must to my collection! The ombre purple stripes are so pretty! It pairs so perfectly with ‘Fizzy Grape‘ it is such a pretty purple mani! I couldn’t resist a cheesy grape related pun, so one more photo of this mani 😉

[Week 24: Inspired by a Book] The Rainbow Fish

This is my nostalgic week… Last time I couldn’t go past a classic Harry Potter inspired mani 🙂

w 24 old

But this week, I am heading back to preschool 😉 it’s art time! When I first saw ‘Shinning Personality’ I instantly thought of the Rainbow Fish and the shinny little scales!

For this mani, I have used ‘Mermaid Tales’ for my base wrap, a cute scaly ombre from purple to a bluey green shade. I have overlaid ‘Shinning Personality’ on top of ‘Mermaid Tales’ to get the Rainbow Fish effect 🙂

As an accent nail, I have been inspired by a mani I saw on facebook which was stunning, and the colour combos just match the Rainbow Fish theme! As a base wrap, I have used the StyleBox Exclusive which was a part of the time capsule a few months ago called ‘Behind the Design Ombre’ which is this gorgeous ombre from silver through to a bluey/purple. I have overlaid a clear wrap called ‘Metallic Silver Stripe’

I am actually really in love with this mani! I had a lot of fun with my mini ‘arts and craft’ class and I am ready for nap time 😛

[Week 19: Galaxies] When you wish upon on a star!

Last week, it was over the moon, this week I am wishing on the stars! Let’s hope those wishes can come true! 😉

I was actually super proud of my previous galaxy nails! Only problem, they took about 3-4 hours for me to complete them :S but it was worth it right?!?!

This weeks wrap is a retired wrap from the 2016 Mother’s Day sets, it is called “Fine Lines” and I have been dying to see what this wrap looks like on! Definitely looks amazing in natural light and shows off all the colours in this gorgeous exclusive! Galaxy inspired nails in all of, ahh, 40 minutes? That because I am a perfectionist and did 2 sets of TruShine Gel 😛

Have a look HERE to see other cute, quick and easy manis you can do at home! I am pretty excited to have the compliments keep rolling in this week! Have a great week guys xx

[Week 17: Glitter] Sweet 16

Sweet 16 is my theme for 2016 🙂 so naturally, I had to use Trushine Gel in Sweet 16 for my glitter week!

This week is an all gel mani! I used Jamberry’s trushine gel kit, using a shade called ‘beauty sleep’ which is so pretty! I am loving the shimmery purple and to really make it glitter, I have done an accent nail with a few coats of ‘sweet 16’ which is a deep purple glitter through a clear gel 🙂 I am not perfect with my gel application yet, but this is probably the best application I have had so far so I am pretty happy!

So, yeah, not going to show you my previous glitter attempt 😛 I look like a toddler who can’t stay within her cuticles!

If gel isn’t your think, Jamberry has a heap of glittery ‘sparkle’ finish wraps! Best part about it? The easy removal! Gone are the days of trying to g e n t l y scrape glitter polish off! To see this pretty glittery wraps, click HERE!

Not going to lie, I am pretty excited for next weeks mani 😉 I have this beautiful half moon wrap which I have been holding onto for a while! In Jamberry world, we call it a unicorn… A retired wrap that is really hard to find so you will have to wait till next week to see it 😉

[Week 16: Tribal Print] Guacamole!

Ok, Tribal Print is personally not really my style, I am more of a soft feminine, classy nails kind of girl, but Jamberry makes something for everyone 🙂

I wasn’t a fan of tribal print when I did it last time:

w 15 old

Tribal print looks much better this time round 😉 I have used a retired wrap I got in my starter kit! It is called ‘Guacamole’ which, honestly, I  wasn’t completely feeling it until I added this months colour pop lacquer, ‘Purple Reign’ 🙂

Each month Jamberry are releasing an exclusive colour of the month lacquer or gel! To see this months, click HERE! Hope you all have a great week! K x

[Week 10: Gradient] Bye bye Autumn!

Well, we have been hit with some pretty intense winter storms, its pretty clear that Autumn is over! So this weeks gradient is such a pretty deep burgundy!

I had an exam today which I felt was a COMPLETE flop, so I was so excited to get home and find some of Jamberry’s Style Box wraps, including these two pretties! You’re a Gem Foilage & You’re Gem Ombre from the October 2015 Feminine Style Box!

I’ve never been great at gradients… Have a look at my 2012 attempt… Clear to say… Not great!

And now:

You’re a Gem Foilage has a glossy finish while You’re a Gem Ombre has a luster finish, so to match them, I have put the matte top coat over foilage 🙂

I love these no fail gradients! There are a few other perfect gradients that Jamberry have – picking which one was the hardest part :p but this week is kind of exciting, I am 1/3 of the way through my challenge today & pretty excited for the next 10 weeks of patterns! Hope you are all well & surviving these storms xx

[Week 6: Violet] Purple Paisley

Monday’s are hard. This Monday was just a mess 😦 after doing overtime at work, walking out to find a parking ticket was the worst! Seems like it has been the general consensus today. However, it was nothing that couldn’t be fixed by a lovely girly night with friends!

30W Lilac 2

Today’s mani Monday, is the exclusive host reward wrap for July! When you reach a certain amount in sales you earn the host reward 🙂 I got this from holding a workshop last month & earned three exclusive wraps as a reward (which is how I got my hands on it early :P)

I have paired the ‘June 2016 Host Exclusive’ with the gel ‘She’s Unavailable’ which is the pretty purple as per this weeks theme.

30W Lilac 1

It took me a while to decide on this wrap! I had to narrow it down from about 6/7 options ahaha but I am pretty happy with this one! I don’t think it’s my best application, but the pattern is pretty relaxing 🙂
