Holiday Nails

Hey guys,

So you hopefully wouldn't have realised it, but I have actually been away on holiday the last few weeks. However I scheduled a couple of blog posts so you would have something new to read about while I was away.
Before I went I did a manicure I thought perfect for my holiday, I based it on a design I found here!

This was my attempt to recreate it. I once again cannot neaten up my edges, but other than that I think I did a fairly good job. I also managed to do the design on both hands
I'm not sure why the background looks blue against my right hand, i'm just going to assume that I am not as good at taking photos with my less dominant hand.

The photos also didn't show that all the colours I used in the background actually have tiny bits of glitter in and shine when the light goes on them
Just for your amusement, here is a shot of how bad I am at doing gradients showing how much I got it all over my fingers.. Now you can see that I did actually make an attempt to clean up my fingers this time, however I just got bored when left with tiny white bits around the nail.

The colours I used in this were:
  • Rimmel Cocktail colour - 140 Hawaiian Punch (Red)
  • Babby Doll KDC 360 - 146 (Orange)
  • Rimmel I ❤ lasting finish - 280 Sunshine (Yellow)
  • Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure - 340 Black Platinum (Black)

So there you have it, let me know what you think of this manicure! 


  1. Haha, yes, gradients are such a pain to clean up! The finished result looks very fun, though (I can't believe you did it on BOTH hands)!

    1. Thank you, i'm glad you like it! I actually do quite a few manicures on both hands, my right takes me a lot longer to do than my left though, but I hate them being odd!

  2. Also, I've nominated you for a Liebster award: :)

    1. Oh wow thank you so much, I will check out your post :)
