Totally off topic from makeup I know... but I thought I'd have abit of a ramble as I was planning on not posting today (due to spending too much time painting my nails yesterday).
So on New Years day I decided to start working my way through my long list of resolutions (as I do actually take them fairly seriously) first starting with ordering some China Glaze nail polishes, four to be exact...the resolution being I needed more China Glaze nail polish in my collection (good resolution, no?).
Then me and Mr Makeup Savvy (or Tim as I'm sure he's prefers to be called) decided to wallpaper the blank wall of our bedroom and finally put up the mirror that's been resting on the dressing table since I moved house.
I also changed the chair for a more comfy one and sorted out my makeup abit, but all in all it took only 3 hours!
As for yesterday...
I spent a large portion of the day paint my nails, as my 3rd resolution is to create a nice nail polish swatch library here on my blog in order of brands or maybe colours.
So I painted my nails with all the Barry M polishes I own, which did take alot longer than expected... as it was - painting, taking a photo, removing and re-painting and so on!
However I did decide to be a crazy woman and do abit of nail art for the fun of it and tried out teeny weeny mini leopard print nails and afew other things.
I loved the mini leopard print that much I decided to go even smaller and just do it on the tips of the nails over Revlon's Nude Chic.
Then using a eyeliner pen I created the little odd shaped spots on the ends of the nails - really simple.
Which brings me to my 4th and last resolution (well that I will be mentioning..I have so many resolutions). Which is to post at least two nail art tutorials per month!
My Google Analytics tell me these are the most viewed posts and I know alot of people find them more interesting than just lots of reviews...so that is what I shall do more of.
I'm going to stick to using basic tools but hopefully fun designs/ideas like mini leopard print and how to create hounds tooth nails etc!
I'm sure I will be back tomorrow with a more Makeup focused post!
