Today I had the pleasure of spending the day "playing" with the entire Modern Folklore Collection from CND (minus the vinylux)
This is the autumn collection so the colours are very rich, jewel tones.
Indigo Frock is a really unusual shade of blue/grey which i think will look great mattified. Plum Paisley is a deeply pigmented purple. Rose Brocade is a sheer red that's bang on trend at the moment. Crimson Sash is a luxurious looking red. Fine Vermillion, one of my favourites, is am amazing metallic orange. Locket Love is a perfect gold, many have been waiting for this colour for a while.
The additives, I was super excited about, are all perfect. They are pigment effects so they are not solid colours and take on aspects of whatever colour you put them on top of. For my bases I used Studio White and Black Pool.

Here are some shots of Pink Lotus and Haute Pink
Then we have Midnight Tide with Cerulean Blue and Deep Blue for comparison (midnight tide is in the middle)
And last I compared Midnight Tide to Deep Blue, Cerulean Blue (all over Cream Puff) and Blue Heaven (over Black Pool)

I did quite a lot of different nails over Halloween but the orange and black were the ones I liked the most, done with polish for a change. I also customised a skeleton hand bracelet for my Halloween costume, I used acrylic, various glitter and rhinestones.
These were my Christmas nails, I went for classic red and gold, using CND shellac, glitter and some stamping to finish off.
And last but not least my New Years nails, I will end the year with my favourite shape and colours. Hope everyone has had a good year x

I have trimmed my lovely long nails off for college (sad times) and I'm missing them so much already. I feel like my fingers look all short, lol.
So, I decided to treat myself to a nice shiny mani for the few days I'm allowed to wear it. I went to my trusty Vinylux polish, Gilded Pleasure, as it dries so quickly I don't have enough time to smudge it. I sprinkled on some Irresistible Glitter (Chameleon Iridescent) and topcoated 3 times to get it smooth.
I love this glitter as it changes depending on what colour the base polish is.
I then stamped over it with MoYou's Pro Collection 05 Plate using 17 Silver Holo Polish to give the spider web a shimmery/silvery appearance and topcoated again.

This is just a little post, mainly some images, showing what I've been up to since I last blogged. I'm back at college now so hopefully I'll have more advanced nail art coming up over the next year.
Last but not least, a lovely nail tech from Belgium sent me some neon pigments to try out. I've got a set of 6 I purchased from ebay which look great in the tub and mix nicely with gel and acrylic but look pastel when burnished into shellac. These stay super bright and glow amazingly under UV lights. This is the green and pink over Cream Puff Shellac.
