Welcome Back!

Welcome Back!

Forgive me, for it has been nearly THREE months since my last post. This has been in no small part due to moving house (again) and starting a new job – there just does not seem to have been any time for nail painting. I’m hoping that now things are settling down I will be able to get back to some nail art! I’ve missed it!

The eagle-eyed among you may have spotted that I have updated my Instagram now and again, and I managed to post four different Christmas manicures over December which did not make it to the blog, so I haven’t been completely lost in the nail art wasteland.

As for what’s on my nails right now? I’m cheating at the moment – I’m wearing these gorgeous press on nails from Elegant Touch. My friend loved the design and bought them for me last month and they were perfect when I needed something for work on Thursday. 🙂 These are the easiest things to stick on – they come with tabs that clearly display the number so you don’t spend ages trying to find the correct size. (Please forgive my awful cuticles!)

What’s on your nails right now?

Review: Express Nails by Elegant Touch

I regularly wear false nails so I was really excited when Elegant Touch offered to give away sets of their new Express Nails for review. There are 24 different designs, ranging from classic reds, through pastels and neons and several different arty designs, including hearts, spots and triangles. I was sent two packs – Bright Purple and Bright Marble. At £7.99 for plain colours and £8.99 for designs, these are a reasonable price but a little more than I usually pay for my nails, so I was intrigued to see if they lived up to their claim of 1 week when applied correctly!

November Gig Nails by Polishious Nails

November Gig Nails by Polishious Nails

I won a set of firework nails from the fabulous Polishious Nails on Twitter last month and instantly earmarked them for my band’s next gig (which happened at The Black Horse in Sidmouth on Saturday 16th November). I love my slightly gothic and glamourous stage alter ego and these were just perfect.

October Gig Nails, Prairie Charms Hair Slide and Little Mix Nail Wraps

This post is quite picture heavy! If you’ve peeked at my very brief bio on the About Me page then you’ll know that I’m in a band called Pitchbend. We play covers of a great variety of music from ZZ Top to Lady GaGa, all with generally a soul and blues feel. I love dressing up for gigs – I particularly love my very high platform heels! I bought a new pair from New Look recently but I wasn’t brave enough to perform in them at my gig at the weekend. I need more practice in them!

This was my first foray into wearing false nails. I love the idea of false nails – no clean up on your nails, instant length, no sitting around waiting hours for them to dry. Wearing them on the other hand, turns out to be quite difficult. These are “European Short Nails” from eBay, and if you’ve got little nails like me, then they are *not* short. (More after the jump!)
