WAH Look #20 - Graphic Stripe

I can't believe I've managed to get this far through the WAH Nails book!
I'm usually crap at this kind of thing, so I'm really chuffed with myself for getting so far, and only five mani's left!

Here is look number 20, Graphic Stripe -

The colours for these are all Barry M's except the white which is by Illamasqua.

Difficult if you're tired, these are!!

I hope you enjoy, and I'll see you next time :-)

Swatches - Models Own Mirror Ball Collection

There has been soooo much buzz about these polishes and since I bought them I can 100% see why!!

Ever since the success of Ibiza Mix from the Hed Kandi collaboration, I thought they wouldn't be able to stop there! I think Models Own have pretty much nailed it here - 

From left to right - Freak Out!, Hot Stuff, Disco Inferno, Boogie Nights and Dancing Queen.

Freak Out! over Chanel Suspiscious -

Hot Stuff over Cult Nails Awakening - 

Disco Inferno over Illamsqua Smash - 

Boogie Nights over Barry M 134 Yellow - 

Dancing Queen over Barry M 1A Red Wine - 

All swatches have three coats of Models Own polish over base colour with Collection top coat.

I can't pick a favourite here. I usually find that there is one stand out polish from a collection that I fall in love with but I just can't choose!

Polishes cost £5 each or you can purchase the box set where you get all five and a top coat for £20.
Or you can do what I did and buy them individually and get £7 off when you buy five polishes on

I hope you like these even a little bit as much as I do!!

Have a fabulous weekend ♥

WAH Look #19 - Le Stife

Mondrian is one of my fave artists. I just love the look of his works and the colours and it's all just pretty :-)

I have done a look very similar to this at the beginning of WellNailed's life HERE, using striping tape instead of a striping brush.

But, as with all the looks from the WAH book, I'm trying to stay true to the book's instructions!

I used all Barry M's except the yellow which is Illamasqua.

I can't decide which I prefer really. I like them both for different reasons :-)

I hope you like them too and I'll see you next time!

WAH Look #18 - Eyeball

This is a mani that I have done a variation of before, but these are MUCH better!!!! 

I am such a fan of this look! I love creepy, halloween-y mani's as my birthday is only 5 days before, so I get right into it :-)

Everything except the white base is nail art pen, I think the learning process is coming along quite well!

I hope you like these nails, I'm watching you....

Have a fabulous weekend and I'll see you next week,

W7 Metallic Planets Famous Five!!

Who loves TkMaxx? ME! I DO!

So my mum forced me to go, and I always manage to find something to buy when I'm there, and this time it was a set of five W7 metallic planet polishes for a tenner! A TENNER! Bargain.

I'm really sorry, but I the polishes aren't labelled, so I have NO idea what they're called! I have swatched them L-R from the picture above.

I do apologise for the sheer volume of pictures!
Every time I took another one, another colour showed through, I just hope I did these gorgeous polishes justice :-)

Hope you like, and I'll see ya next time!
