Ridiculously Over The Top Bronze Sparkle =)

posted by Sara ♥


Hello! =)
Yay it's time for my third outfit inspired nail post =DDD

This one is probably my fave design i'v ever created.... it's just so OTT!

So as you can tell there's a LOT going on in this design!
I painted my nails in Rimmel's Star Dust, then sponged on a copper coloured glitter polish, then stamped a konad design over the top and finally added a rhinestone to each nail =)

Here's some close-ups of the outfit which inspired this design:

And here's me wearing the clothes =)

Sorry about the weird background, it was late and I just sat on my parents bed to get this shot!

I wish I'd taken shoe pics.... I'm in love the shoes i'm wearing here! Maybe i'l show you them close up another time =)))

Okies peeps, that's all for today! I hope you like the nails and tell me what you think of the outfit =)

Blingin Turquoise Outfit, Shoes and Eyes.... =)

posted by Sara ♥


Yo peeps!

Continuing on from my last post (which is HERE in case you missed it) for all of you lovelies who wanted to see the dress in full, here's me wearing the outfit which inspired me to create the nails I did =) 

*sorry for the awkward pose, it was super sunny and my brother is rubbish at taking photos and this was the only decent non-blurry one he managed to take... when I wasn't even ready! Oh and um yes I beheaded myself =P*

Talking of beheading ourselves.... did you guys see Lady G's outfit on the Xfactor??!!! She literally did decapitate herself!!!! Who knew it was so fashionable to chop off our heads??!!..... er... =/

Erm yea anyway.... the picture of me was taken on the day of Eid and that was how I wore the clothes =]

Bonus pics.... it's shoe droolage time! =P

Wowee my feet look WEIRD in this second pic.... (I blame my bro.... he took the pic =P)

I'm wearing MEMEME Platinum on me toes btw, just in case you wanted to know =]

Okay, and this is the eye look I wore to go with this outfit. The turquoise part was waayyy brighter in real life...

I just thought i'd mention that I was inspired by the AMAZING Miss. Sneakerette who posts freaking brilliant eye looks and a load of other awesomesauce, go check out her blog! She's super cool =) 
My eye look is nothing, lol I mean nothing compared to hers but I like doing these and I think you guys might be seeing more of these on here.... =]

The products I used were Pop glam jam (primer), 17 glam rocks palette silver and white (inner corner and middle), Sleek turquoise eye dust (outer corner), Barry M black khol pencil (water line), Maybelline lasting drama gel eyeliner (upper lid) and Clinique high impact mascara (lashes).

And just for the fun of it, here's the nails again =]

Okies so that's all for today I hope you enjoyed the randomness =] I'l see you all later for more outfit inspired fun =] 


Second Outfit Inspired Nails =] Blingin Turquoise Necklaces!

posted by Sara ♥


Hey!!!!!! =)

Remember a while ago I posted these outfit inspired nails? Well recently I'v had a lot of formal events to attend to like weddings and such, and I got the chance to create a few more outfit-matching-nail-designs =]

So for my next few posts you'l be seeing a load of my different outfit inspired nails, which I really hope you'l all enjoy reading through =]

For today's post I thought I'd show you a design a did to go with the clothes I wore for Eid a few months back. I'l show you the nails I did for the Eid that just went in a later post.

Okies here's a close-up shot of the gorgeous top, which has a beautiful jeweled neckline.

And here's the nail design I came up with to match =]

I got soooooo many compliments on this design it was crazy lol! Seriously whenever I go out hardly anyone notices my nails but these ones seemed to catch everyone's attention! Almost everyone was like woah what are those cool lil beady things?! Lol =P

So I used the awesome Colour Club's Wicked Sweet as a base, which is super bright and shimmery. Oh and smells divine too!
I then used topcoat and little nail art beads and silver gems I bought from ebay to create a necklace style pattern on the ring finger and thumb nails. For the rest of the nails I also used the beads and gems but just created little 'bindi' style designs.

It was kinda difficult applying the beads and the necklaces didn't come out completely perfect, but hey it was my first time and i'm still pretty happy with the way it turned out =]

Here's some pics of my nails with the dress:

In my last outfit inspired post I got asked by a lot of you for me to show you guys the entire dress. I'm so sorry I couldn't manage to get pictures of me wearing that outfit, but I promise I'l show you this one in its full glory in my next post =]

I also took pictures of the eye makeup I wore with this outfit and you'l get to see that along with a few more things soon =)

Hope you enjoyed reading this post, I'm sorry I rambled quite a bit! Please let me know what you think of this design and if you'v ever tried using nail art beads before?? 

Until next time, have a wonderful wonderful day =D

Eeek i'm soo excited to be showing you this ah-mazing beauty which comes in the form of Nubar Reclaim! =)

I even got compliments on this mani from a guy! Who I don't even know lol!

Ok enough chattering... moving on to the pics =]

These above pics were taken in natural sunlight. 

These below pics were taken in artificial light plus flash.

I was recommended this polish by a lot of you lovely bloggers, and I'm soooo glad I finally listed to you all and got it! It was the lovely Little Miss Sparkles who posted about this and as soon as I read the post I ran lol literally ran to ebay and bought a bottle straight away! 

I think i'd like to try some stamping over this, and if all goes well lol I'l def do a post on it =] 

Thanks for reading peeps, i'l talk to you all soon!

So lately I'd been on a roll and felt like trying out all the different polishes that were ever so kindly given to me by the lovely Caroline from Shadow's Nail Art as part of a swap we did. Just remembered to tell you that the last post I wrote on Wet and Wild's Night Prowl was also a polish she sent me. =]

Ok so today i'l show you my latest try out, which was a HUGE lemming of mine. It's Claires Mood Polish in Flirty/Shy =]]]]]]]]]]]]

My absolute favorite colour of polish to wear is blue and to get two shades of blue in the same polish.... AWESOME!!!!! 

This polish was effortless to apply, just two coats that dry super fast and you'r good to go! As soon as I applied it, it magically changed colour which was soo cool! It dries to a matte finish, which personally I found a little streaky but topcoat instantly changed that for the better =]

Ok so here's my nails after they were run under cold water. The colour changes to a gorgeous deep true royal blue.

And here you see the polish when my nails were run under hot water. The colour becomes a super amazing bright turquoise which looks stunning! 

So overall i'm SUPER impressed with this polish and can't wait to try out the other two colours I have =) I love the way you get a french tip slash gradient mani that takes no effort at all to create! 

Do you guys own any mood polishes? What do you think of them, too childish or totally awesome?
