7 of 7 - Navy Animal Prints

So here is the final post of my ‘seven posts in seven days’ but I will probably be posting again tomorrow too because I’m getting into the routine of posting everyday so it’s going to be weird not posting as often!  I did these nails about 2 weeks ago for 12-year-old Jasmine to go to a birthday party.  She had a gorgeous navy blue dress to wear so we thought we’d have nails to match it! 
For these I used CND Stickey Base Coat, Models Own: Snow White, True Blue, Black Nail Pen and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat to finish.  I love these nails but we had planned to do leopard print on her toes but after attempting that we agreed to do Zebra stripes instead because True Blue was too dark and so the leopard print didn’t show up very well and looked a bit odd!

6 of 7 - Bright Neon Leopard

If you are reading this my scheduled post worked!  I had loads of compliments about these nails because they were so bright and eye catching, but again the photos haven’t done them justice even though I tried to take photos with and without the flash as you can see:
For these I used CND Stickey Base Coat, Models Own: Sophie’s Pink, Tangerine Queen, Aciiied, Black Nail Pen and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.  
Tangerine Queen is an amazing colour!  It almost glows in the dark and would probably look fab under UV lights but is quite a daring shade!  As everyone knows Sophie’s Pink is my favourite shade, so enough said about that lovely colour!  I think Aciiied takes a bit of getting used to as it is quite a bizarre shade but I think it would look great with black.

5 of 7 - Gold and Silver Leopard

These are the nails I did for my birthday to match the outfit I wore and the photos really don’t do them justice! 
I used CND Stickey Base Coat, Models Own: Gold Rush, Sterling Silver, black nail pen and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat to finish.
I’m off to Cheltenham for the weekend today so I’m going to try and schedule a post for tomorrow in case I can’t access the internet.  Hope you all have a good weekend!

4 of 7 - Pink, Blue and White

Another short post for today sorry as I’m in a foul mood after reversing into a rock, which has scratched half of my bumper!
For these nails I used CND Stickey Basecoat, Models Own: Hot Pink, Feeling Blue, Snow White, black and white nails pens and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.
This design is one of my favourites and of course was inspired by WAH Nails.  I really love designs that have 2-3 colours with different patterns/designs but these designs seem to take me ages because I can never decide what to do on each nail!

3 of 7 - Cruella de Vil-ish?!

Despite my efforts in trying to get to bed early last night that didn’t happen and I slept late for work today by waking up at 5am (stupid Blackberry alarm is too easy to turn off) but after a bit off a rush I was thankfully only a couple of minutes late!  I also had college tonight and learnt about the health and safety assignments we have to do and then practised how to prep nails for acrylics.  Can’t wait until I can do a full set of acrylics from start to finish!  Anyway, back to today’s nail design…
I did these nails for my friend Danielle because she was going to a wedding and wanted some funky nails to match her dress.  I used Models Own Red Alert, Snow White and black nail pen along with CND Stickey Base Coat and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.  
We were both happy with how these nails turned out but I really should have tidied up the edges before taking the photos!  I know without dalmatian spots nothing can be full on Creula de Vil, but they have that look about them don’t they?

2 of 7 - Magaluf Nails

Just a short post tonight as I’ve got to get up at 4.15 to make sure I’m in work on time!
These are the nails I painted for my friend Billy to go to Magaluf.  For these I used CND Stickey Base Coat, Models Own: Gold Rush, Sterling Silver, black nail pen and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.
We were pleased with how these turned out but wish I could have done her thumbnails a bit better!  I love these Models Own shades and they are defiantly my favourite silver and gold polishes out of the ones I’ve used. Will do my next post after college tomorrow night!

1 of 7 - Colourful Leopard

Here is the first post of my ‘Seven Posts in Seven Days’.  I did these at the end of August after seeing similar ones on the WAH Nails website and as u can see my yellow stained tips (from using Barry M Yellow) were still there but I am pleased to say that they have now pretty much gone.  I’ve also started cutting my nails short because on my nail course we were told that we need short nails so that we can practise on each other so I will be posting more designs for short nails in the future!
For these I used CND Stickey Base Coat, Models Own: Hot Pink, Fuzzy Peach, Feeling Blue, Jade Stone, Lilac Dream, Purple Passion, Blooboo, True Blue, Red Alert, Raspberry Crush and Black Nail Pen and finished with Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. 
I was very pleased with how these nails turned out and they were quick and easy to do so I’m thinking of doing a ‘how to’ on these later on in the week.
