mani mondays: glitter fade nails

Essie Vanity Fairest and Models Own Juicy Jules
Added a bit of sparkle to my nails following the WAH glitter fade tutorial.  I think it looks really pretty, definately one for the girlie girls that love a bit of sparkle like me. It'll take a bit of practice for me to nail the technique down though - it's pretttty messy when dragging the glitter polish down the nail, but still fairly pleased with the result!

essie vanity fairest

Essie Diffusion Vanity Fairest: £7.99

I popped my Essie cherry by picking up Vanity Fairest from the popular diffusion line at Boots after spotting it on Gia May's lovely blog. It's so pretty - a sheer milky pink with a shimmer, it looks natural and glossy on the nails, plus the wider brush made application a lot easier. Only complaint is a few bubbles have appeared now my nails have dried, but that's not too much of an issue for me to be honest!

candy stripe nails

Models Own Bloo Bloo and white WAH nail pen

Tried out these candy striped nails after reading the WAH Nails book, which is full of awesome tutorials. I'm loving fondant shades at the moment and thought they looked pretty cute and girlie. I want to try them in lots of different colours now! Apologies for the messy little finger nail - I smudged it..
