Another Nail Party

Happy Weekend Lovelies!

Friday night I had some girlies over for our much awaited nail night. We started with lots of naughty take away food and ended with some pretty nails :-). Unfortunately my little sister could not make it as she was at a presentation evening with her hubby, of course we missed her millions and it just gives us the perfect excuse to arrange another nail night very soon.

Starting with Samantha...

Samatha picked the very pretty OPI Dont Pretzel My Buttons as her base colour. It took three thin coats to achieve the perfect finish but she was very good and sat very still ;)

To stamp the leopard design we used Barielle Sterling Silver and sealed it all with one coat of my trusty Seche Vite

Very pretty and they suit Samantha perfectly. She is hoping this lasts perfectly until Monday as it is neutral enough to be office appropriate and she would like to show her colleagues :-).

Next up is Amanda...

Amanda had told me weeks ago that she would like me to recreate my zig zag tape mani but in a classy black and gold combination. We started with a base of super rich and shiny W7 Black

I then added lots of little strips of tape across the top section of each nail and sponged a thin layer of Barry M Gold Foil onto each tip.

For the added sparkle factor we used Barry M Gold sponged over the Gold Foil and a little pink glitter to create an accent nail.

Finally we have Jamie...

Jamie had also picked her manicure weeks ago by sending me a press release picture for the Nail Jewellery polishes from Nails Inc. For this look we started with a base of two coats of Barry M Vivid Purple, such a gorgeous and rich colour (I must use this more!)

I then created this gradient tips look by painting two thick coats of Pink Diamond onto Jamies tips and then dragging an almost clean brush down the nail to spread the dense glitter out a little.

Jamie loved this look so much that she is going to add a layer of gel over the top which should keep this nicely in place for a good two weeks :-).

Another great night ladies - cant wait to do it again
