Fuchsia Shock!

quick post today,
Just wanted to show you the Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat (which I'm sure you have all seen or have!)
Personally I really like it, and it cracked great! Just make sure you put a thin coat, because this will not crack with a thick coat!

What do you think about the crackles? Are you over them? What will be the new trend?!

Mini Pink/Purple Haul !!

Today I have a mini haul for you!
I picked up the following polishes: Sally Hansen Xtreme wear Twisted Pink, Rimmel London, Wild Orchid, and Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat in Fuchsia Shock

 Here you can see the super cool gold reflex that drew me to this Xtreme wear polish!!

Here I was messing around with iSplash, thought it looked pretty cool!

Have you tried any of these polishes? I can't wait to try the pink crackle! What other Xtreme Wear polishes do you love?

ps: mac people.. do you use iPhoto and Preview to edit your pictures? What do you use?!

Crazy Colourful Splatter!!

Hi! today, I have some crazyyyyy nails!! This is a splatter technique which I'm sure you have heard about! Here are some pictures, followed by the straws and the paint tray I used (which is great for polishes!) and then pictures of my 2 favourite patterns! 
Things you need: base colour, splatter colours, straws, something to put the polish in, lots of polish remover, and q-tips and cotton balls, and tape! 
Colours I used: various random ones!! but if it's your first time trying I suggest using polishes that are old, or less expensive until you get the hang of it, so you don't waste too much! :)

What do you think!?!? This was my first time trying this, my right hand didn't really turn out too great! But that's okay, I also used tape for my left but not for my right, and probably better if you use tape! :)
Lemme know if you have any questions about this!!

thanks for reading!
Happy Sunday!
PS: I love the new blogger posting thing, it makes posting pictures so much faster! :)

Ruffian Manicure featuring Sally Hansen Insta-Dri

Today I used 3 different insta-dri polishes to create this look. I used loose leaf reinforcements, or hole protecters to create this affect. If you want a step-by-step guide, I can show you next time, because I will definitely be doing more manis like this! :)

Excuse the blurriness! :)

What I used: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Polishes in Sea Breeze as a base, followed by Night Flight, and then the clear top coat! :)

What do you think? What is your favourite colour combination for these types of manicures?

Thanks for reading! :)
