I have a few more manis to show you.

First up, the purple ombré I said I was doing with the L.A. Girl kit Ordinary Misfit sent me:

Purple ombré

Most of the glitters I have are opaque, so I was a bit surprised when this one wasn’t. I used 3 coats of the glitter and the lightest colour on my thumb which was very sheer.the glitter was very pretty though:

It almost looks like there are polka dots underneath with glitter over.

I then decided to try the Yardley Gel-lac which is supposed to last 10 days. I added an accent nail painted with Tip Top Melting Marshmallows, dotted with the Gel-lac:

Gel-lac Fuschia

I found it lasted as long as regular polish:

Day 5
Tip Top still perfect

I found that this polish is prone to knocks though and it looked dented after a couple of days. Someone did, however, ask me if I had gel on so I guess the effect is close enough to the real thing.

I managed to get my hands on some Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby which is a stunning red and wanted to accent that with Tip Top Rocky Road. Siobhan said it looked as if I dipped my nails into snow:

Ruby Ruby and Rocky Road

This mani lasted 7 days!! After that performance I decided to invest in another Sinful Colors polish and bought myself Mint Apple. I wanted to try some nail art since I have a little time to myself and it’s the only chance I’ll get, so I decided to try dripping nail art over the Mint Apple with the silver I got in the dotting kit
I won:

Dripping nail art

The drips were easy to do, despite the silver polish being difficult to work with and drying very quickly. It did take me AGES to do though. I followed the tutorials on the cutepolish YouTube channel for the drips.

I hope you liked the pictures!
