Still devoid of Internet!

Still no Internet access for me I'm afraid :( except 3G on my phone which really doesn't count!

Life has also got a bit overwhelming lately so I have a terrible lack of motivation. Back ASAP though.

Lady Gaga Nail Art

On Tuesday night I went to see Lady Gaga. It's the fourth time I've seen her (1x Fame Ball, 2x Monster Ball, 1x Born This Way Ball) and it was, as always, so much fun! It's always just like a giant disco! Obviously I had to theme my nails for the night, and this is what I came up with.

I used China Glaze Winter Berry (one of my favourite ever reds) for the base. I used some tiny nail art studs to make the cross, and little hexagonal sequins (or glequins as The Nailasaurus has catchily called them) for the half moons. I used a tiny nail art brush to freehand the heart over a base of Barry M Turquoise.

I love the cross, none of the studs have fallen off yet and I never want to remove it!

I should mention that I don't have internet access at home at the moment, and I'm not sure when it'll be back (maybe a couple of weeks) so posting will be quite sporadic, pretty much whenever I can steal someone's wifi (I'm currently stealing my brother's) I feel like I'm stuck in the dark ages!

New from Barry M - Gelly Nail Paint

Barry M has another exciting release coming up! I'm already a huge fan of jelly-finish polishes but find them pretty hard to come by in the UK, but Barry M saves the day again! Apparently they're going to be 1-coaters...I've never experienced a 1-coat jelly before, so I'm intrigued.

I'm still here!

Hi! I haven't been posting lately because I've been busy and I've had to cut off all my nails because they were all split down to the quick! :(

I miss posting lots and I'll be back as soon as my nails look acceptable to take pictures of again!
