Another gradient design...

I am very much loving gradient nails...
I thought I'd try using some similar colours so its a lovely subtle gradient...

Do you like the pink and purple?
For this I used "Australis: Peek-A-Boo" with "OPI: Lucky Lucky Lavender" for the tips...
With a lovely touch of Seche Vite Top Coat.

Sunflower nails...

I was in a bit of an indecisive state as to what to paint on my nails...

My work mate said flowers...

meanwhile, in the staff room another work mate had brought in some Sunflowers....
they were so pretty and big...

and thus my inspiration....


For this manicure I used:
Revlon Wind Fall (it's actually much more teal-ly in real life...)
Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow
and 
Revlon Totally Toffee
along with some gold studs from Born Pretty Store...
coated in a generous helping of Seche Vite Dry fast top coat

also in a random coincidence check out this Sunflower tutorial by Nailed It NZ...

Teal and geometric

Today I found the pictures I took a little while ago when I first got my striping tape. 

Aren't they cute?
I admit they're not the most exciting manicure, But I quite like the simplicity of them...
I'm into simple geometric designs you see....

I got my striping tape from the BornPrettyStore.
There's HEAPS of colours! 



This manicure was really simple and I think the after result looks really cool! 

I used Revlon Jaded Night (Dark Green) and Revlon Wind Fall (Bright Teal).

I painted half my nail with the different polishes, then applied silver striping tape over the meet-up line. 
Then finished off with my favourite of all favourites 
Seche Vite fast dry top coat.
