    f-Oil Slick On Black Market

    With my earnest sense of Dad-jokes, it should be no surprise I’ve named this one f-Oil Slick on Black Market. I mean check it out. How good does she look? This is one smooth-arse version of OIL SLICK NAILS, if I do say so myself. Gel makes the perfect base for using nail foils in art due to it’s great self-levelling

    Fine Lines Gold Accents on Peach

    Today’s nail art is a simple linear with negative space number. Combining some of my favourites. It begins with a base of Life’s A Peach by @OpallacGelPolish and ends with some fine gold lines using a favourite @essiepolish Good As Gold (cos yeah, I’m an #essie #obsessie)… Linework was done with a liner brush from @twinkled_t in a #twinkledt set.

    Vinyl Hearts for Valentine’s Day

    Vinyl Hearts for Valentine’s Day and the Clairestelle8 HEARTS prompt! I used vinyls from Whats Up Nails and gradient all the things. The hearts and the other fingers are a radial gradient created with a makeup sponge. But since I am using a different camera it was hard to capture the differentiations that you can see in real life.
