Day One: Inspired by a band...

Photobucket

I think it's fitting that the Number One manicure should feature my number One favourite band...
I love Coldplay! 

and my nails should reflect this...
Now I'm not a perfect nail artist and these are not perfect representations of Coldplay's works.
But here you go...
Left hand (the best hand) are all album covers, and my right hand are representations of some of my favourite songs...


Left Hand:
Albums featured are :
Pinky: Parachutes - 2000
 Ring: A Rush of Blood to the Head - 2002
Middle: X & Y - 2005
Index: Viva La Vida or Death and all his friends - 2008
Thumb: Mylo Xyloto - 2011


Right Hand:
Songs Featured are 
Pinky: Life in Technicolour II - From Prospekt's March (an extension of Viva la Vida)

Ring: Green Eyes - From A Rush of Blood to the Head

Middle: Yellow - From Parachutes
look at the stars... look how they shine for you... and everything you do... yeah, they were all yellow...

Index: Lovers in Japan/Reign of Love - From Viva la Vida
 (at their last concert they released HEAPS of paper butterflies for this song) -also the cover of their live album LeftRightLeftRight

Thumb: Clocks - From A Rush of Blood to the Head
...confusion that never stops, closing walls of ticking clocks, gonna come back and take you home, I could not stop the tune I'm on....



And some more shots of the good hand....
I love the X & Y one the best.

Cute spotty nails

So I don't actually own any dotting tools...
I'm currently waiting for some to arrive in the mail...
so these are done with a toothpick... 
and they're note the finest, but I like the colour combo.
What do you think?

I used my new BYS stoney colour (as the base) and BYS dark brown and Revlon Totally Toffee for the spots.

Telletubbies!!!

Photobucket

Woah guys! 
how sad is it that I haven't posted these before! 
I found this photo on my phone, I had uploaded to instagram... 
but obviously forgot you lovely people.

I painted these because my brother is addicted to Telletubbies!

Red Silver Gradient...

Photobucket

Ok so as you can tell this photo is from the days of longer nails... 

It would have totally matched my outfit from yesterday!
(which actually wasn't that long ago...) 
Any way I wanted to try a glitter gradient... 
I think it worked alright...
