Lightning Storm nail art

Hi again, 

Sorry I haven't posted since friday? I was going to post an update of my mani, show you how well it held up (which was really well!) but I just didn't have the energy or the will to take photos of my nails, you know how it is sometimes. Then I had this great idea for some nail art buuuut it went wrong so that was another day without anything to blog about. Then I sorted out my polishes and I now only have 103! Woo progress. Which meant I had about 30 good polishes to sell so I've made a blog sale page but I can't find it lolol when I do though I'll post it. 

I knew I had to make it up to all my old and new readers :) so I chose to do lightning nail art, inspired by the famous tutorial on pinterest, I'm sure you all know the one ;). So I used Nails Inc Chelsea for the base, I wore this on it's own for a couple of hours as we went out just after I'd painted my nails in Chelsea and I really liked it actually :P. My mum saw one of her work friends when we were out and she told them that I was obsessed with nail polish :( I prefer addicted ;). 

Anyway I sponged on Revlon Blue Lagoon, followed by Revlon Plum night, then Models Own Purple Poppy and finally Barry M Matte White. Then I simply drew my wiggly lines on with my white nail art pen and if I felt it needed more purple etc then I simply sponged on some more and then went back over the white. 


I'm going to be honest...I absolutely LOVE these! And they were so easy to do, I tried not to get carried away with the sponging or the extra bolts coming off the main body (?) but I'm so glad I did the little ones as I feel they really make the nails come to life :D. 

I had a really good time down in cornwall thank you everyone who asked :) we went rockpooling like everyday, swimming in a massive lido, watching seals in the harbour, trying amazing ice cream and exploring lands end :) as a special treat I'll show you a picture that I took, I think you'll like it :) 
Hehehe two little seals chilling on the rocks :). 

I'll see you soon hopefully :)

Heyyy! I don't know what to start with ;) Your nails look absolutely amazing, the black suits your skin and the shape and lenth of your nails so well! And the bolts are perfect, there's nothing to add and nothing to "erase"; you should definitely try to present those nails in a nail art contest, because the pics with the leather (?) background makes it even more hardcore! Needless to say, I love them!
I had planned on doing a blog sale, but I just thought it might be too complicated, so when yours is done I might ask you for your do's and dont's, if that is okay with you! I don't want to trouble you with it, just a little input on the subject from someone whose criteria I'll trust :)
AND last but not least, the picture of your holidays is beautiful too ^^ It makes me need some holidays right now!
