Semi Magnetic Nails

So here is another design using my Christmas presents. It's a little strange, I grant you, but I kinda like it.
It's super simple, I used Frogtape to mask the lines because we happen to have some, but anything like masking tape will do the trick.

Super Glitter Nails!

I got some new goodies for Christmas and this is the first of my experiments with presents.
It's basically what my cousin calls "close together sparkles" with some striping tape, so really easy to create.

Sparkly, Purple, Gradient Nails

This is very much the Ronseal of nail designs. It was also an excuse to bust out a few of my hoard of purples. The flash has made it look stripier than it did in real life, but you get the gist.

I used the sponge method to get the gradient effect for the purple colours and the just added glitter to the top half of my nails.

Art Deco Nails

So I did a dance show just before Christmas and the colour theme for our tap routine was black and gold. What better excuse for a nail design?
I tried to keep it quite simple so that I could fix it if I chipped them at work. The result is a bit art deco-y and I quite like it. All fingers other than the ring finger are matte finish.
