Nailvengers Assemble: New Year, New Technique

Hi! Today marks the arrival of a fun new nail art group that I'm excited to be part of. Nailvengers Assemble is a group made up of Sammy from The Nailasaurus, Lucy from Lucy's Stash, Alice from One Nail To Rule Them All, Amelia from xameliax, and myself! Since we all met each other at the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards we've been thinking about starting a group, and here it is! 

At the end of every month, the five of us will be posting nail art of a particular theme. Our very first theme is New Year, New Technique, so we're all trying something new to us!

Waves and Studs

Something bright and cheerful today in an attempt to cheer myself up! Also quite a bit different to my usual style, I mostly go for understated but this definitely is not!

No7 Galaxy Swatches - Chanel Taboo dupe?

I heard this polish is a dupe of Chanel Taboo, so naturally that made me go out and buy it! Unfortunately I don't have Taboo to show you a comparison, but it really is very similar!

Maybelline Street Artist Swatches

While browsing in Superdrug a few days ago I came across these new polishes from Maybelline (my eyes shot straight to them, I'm well trained!) called Street Artist, an addition to the Color Show range. I think there were 4 available but I was good and just picked my favourite two!

Vertical Gradient with Illamasqua

Gradients are still up there with my favourite nail art techniques! I love doing them and seeing other people do them. I'm quite jealous of the people who manage to blend them SO seamlessly that it doesn't even look real! Practice makes perfect though and I think I've come quite a long way with mine (I may do a then and now post soon!)

Stamping Over Duochrome

Went back to basics for the title of this post, didn't I? Coming up with post titles is the bane of my life! Anyway, I've been doing more stamping. My MoYou London plates have really rekindled my love for it!

I'm Wearing Leopard Underneath

You can't go wrong (well, most of the time) with a classic leopard print manicure. I haven't featured it in a while so thought it was time!

Candie's Nail Polish at Primark

Has anybody noticed that lately Primark is big into nail art and nail polish? I know they've had the Angelica range for a while, but on my last visit I noticed a a lot of new things, including ombre kits and gel effect top coat! The biggest thing that caught my eye though was a new stand of Candie's make-up. I picked up a couple of the polishes to try out.

Gold Filigree

You must excuse my pictures, 2 of my bulbs died on me at the same time! So I'm having to make do until I decide what new bulbs to buy. I have the worst luck with lighting!
