Children In Need Nails!

20131116-112044.jpg

Very quick post for you today, yesterday for those of us in the UK it was the BBC’s Children In Need annual extravaganza.  Its a great charity event, raising millions of pounds for disadvantaged children and their families up and down the UK.

They have a teddy bear mascot, called Pudsey, and these nails above are my homage to Pudsey’s eye bandana, which is white with these colour dots.

For the polishes I used
Cult Nails Tempest – White
Depend – Red
Essie Mojito Madness – Green
Catrice Yellow Sub-Mandarin – Yellow
Sally Hansen Brisk Blue – Blue

Topped off with a coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl.

Love this, got lots of nice comments and by this morning Children in Need has raised £31 Million!

Black and White Dotty Nails

I’m not one for nail art, I’m not particularly artistic and I’m worried about doing something that looks awful.  But the one thing it appears I can do is DOTS!!  Yay, dots are cool.  Seriously cool.  I had a dotting tool kit that I picked up off eBay for pennies, literally, you can buy something similar here. But you can also use several other things, like hair pins or toothpicks.

Anyway, this is my first “nail art” share,  I used one coat of Cult Nails Tempest – this is my favourite go to white polish.  Seriously awesome and flawless in one coat.  And then used a couple of my dotting tools with my Wet N Wild Black Creme.  I then topped with Glisten and Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

What do you think?  Are dots your thing?
