Gelish Ooh La La Collection Polka Dot Nail Art

Hey everyone! Here are the full pictures of the nails I wore on my holiday, if you want to read about it you can see my post here. I don't often apply gel nails to myself as I change my polish so often it's difficult to test them out properly. But as I was going away for a week I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try out some of the new Gelish Ooh La La Collection*.

Nails on Holiday

Hey everyone! So last year when I went to Italy I did a post titled 'Nails on Tour' where I posted pictures of my nails in front of all the things I got up to on holiday. It's one of my favourite posts to look back on as I have some really great memories from that holiday, so I wanted to do the same this year when I went to Cyprus. Last year me and my friend did lots of touristy things and adventuring, but this year me and my boyfriend did a bit more relaxing than exploring. I did however still manage to take a few photos to show you. 

I had such an amazing time with perfect weather, the post-holiday blues are definitely bad this year! If you're looking for a hotel to stay at I'd 100% recommend the Atlantica Oasis in Limassol. It took us so long to choose a hotel, but we definitely made the perfect choice. It's family-friendly so there are lots of children but as a couple we still had an amazing time. This was our first experience of all inclusive, so we did a lot of eating, and all the food was gorgeous. I pigged out on pancakes all week because they were unlimited and it was brilliant!

On my nails I'm wearing Gelish - Postcards From Paris*, with an accent nail of Gelish - Escar-go To France*, both of which are from the new Ooh La La collection. You might remember the glitter from my Monthly Favourites, and it certainly didn't disappoint on holiday! I'll do a full post on the nails separately. Read more after the jump.

Simple Summer Florals

Hey everyone! I'm back from the best holiday I've ever been on. We had perfect weather for the whole week, and it was so nice to be able to relax and not think about anything after months of dissertation work and exams. I managed to read for the first time in over a year, in fact I read 4 books in the week, I'm clearly not very good at lying on a sunbed doing nothing! I'm still pale as anything, despite my best efforts, and I'm very jealous of my boyfriend's tan. I'll be doing a 'my nails on holiday' blogpost in the next few days once I've got the photos off my boyfriend's phone. But today I have for you some simple floral nails I created a long time ago. These are probably from last November time, they were hiding away on my computer and I'd completely forgotten about them but I thought it was time to show you all.

Navy Daisies for Avon

Hey everyone! We all know I love my florals so I was bound to schedule some for when I was away. I know my daisy nails last year were very popular and I wanted to recreate something similar for Avon using a navy base instead. I made the daisies a bit bigger than my previous design and I really loved how they turned out.

Pink Glitter Gradient

Hey everyone! I'm still on holiday so this is another scheduled post but hopefully you're enjoying them! Today I have some nail art using Peach for the Stars from the recent Barry M Sunset Daylight Curing collection. It's been ages since I posted a glitter gradient and they're so simple to create that I thought it was about time. It's nice and summery so it fits with the fact I'm on holiday!

Tutorial Tuesday: Starfish Nail Art for Barry M

Hey everyone! It's been a while since I've posted a 'tutorial tuesday' post so I thought it was about time. Hopefully whilst you're reading this I'm sunning myself by the pool, or eating lots of all inclusive food. I can't wait! I've never been on an all inclusive holiday before so hopefully I'm enjoying it. Today's tutorial is for these cute starfish nails, they're much simpler than I'd usually go for but I ended up really liking them. The steps will be after the jump.

Pineapples for Avon

Hey everyone! When you're reading this I'll hopefully be thousands of feet in the air on my way to Cyprus. Hopefully not scared out of my wits like I usually am but it's probably likely. Today's nail art is some cute pineapples I created for Avon. I wanted to mix them up and not do a full set of entire pineapples so I added an accent nail of smaller pineapples. I loved wearing these, they got a lot of attention but they were also super cute and fun, so hopefully you like them too!
