Nail Nublet

I decided to do this blog as I’m giving up smoking and fully intend to succeed this time, otherwise I’m going to look a right knob :) I’ve already done a Flickr account with my nail bling in, but fancied expanding it with a blog as sometimes I like to babble on about irrelevant rubbish.

I’ve never really been into doing my nails apart from occasionally colouring them in a particularly obnoxious shade of blue or purple, sometimes even black or silver, and I mostly used nail polish remover for removing thermal paste off heatsinks, but I’m hoping that poncing about with my nails a lot will prevent me from doing cigarettey things. So I’m spending my cigarette money on nail varnish, and I seem to be getting a lot of it as well. I’ve even bought top coat and everything. Really, I’m just replacing one addiction for another but at least I can take pretty pictures of this addiction \o/

This Blue Is Ace

So very, very blue. This is Orly Lunar Eclipse from the Cosmic FX collection and it really is smashing.

Orly Lunar Eclipse, it's scrummy

It's an electric blue shimmer with a purple duochrome that hardly shows up in this picture, but it is there. I loved looking at the colour but I got cravey and fidgety so Konaded it all.

Not sure about these random silver squiggles

I used Konad plate m70 and MUA Shade 11 (a silver available from Superdrug. A bottle costs £1) and randomly stamped all over the place. I like it but I don't like it, it's very confusing. Still, that blue looks the bollocks :)
