Today I’ve got some guest nails- my friend Sarah, who’s made an appearance here once or twice! I’ve quite wanted to try my hand at Aztec nails for a while- they’re massive at the mo, with people like Jessie J wearing them. Sarah has short nails so I thought I could whizz them out quickly.
Well, I was totally wrong. They look FOREVER! The first hand took an hour, and the second was a bit quicker at 45 mins. My bum was killing me by the end of it!
I used:

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear: White On
OPI Ogre The Top Blue
Barry M Yellow
Revlon Red
Wet n Wild Black Creme
Dotting tool
Ridiculously tiny paintbrush

Can you tell which hand I did first?! I think one of them looks soooo much better than the other one....have a guess!

I actually love these, need to try them on myself. Bit scared of using my left hand though....I'm pretty good at doing art with my non-dominant hand but this is a whole new ballgame!

Til next time,

Cheeky Dahlia Hearts

Hello my lovelies,
I'm baaaack! My back has finally improved so I've been doing my nails again. Fingers crossed  it doesn't spaz out again soon....really don't fancy wallowing in bed for another week!
Today I'm sharing the a new Cheeky plate with you! I stalked Amazon waiting for them to come back into stock and manage to snag them (before they swiftly sold out). They are really, really nice to stamp with, very easy to collect the image. Also I can see myself using 90% of the images, which is a sweet relief!
I used OPI Be A Dahlia Won't You? A nail polish that I waxed lyrical about here and promised to do a full mani with it. I just love it, so shiny and fuchsia and glass-flecked and unique! The only problem I had with it is that it's soooo hard to photograph outside, my camera was freaking out with the extreme shine!
