Autumn Leaf Inspired Nail Art.

With autumn being my favourite season, I couldn’t not showcase some extremely autumnal nails at this time of year. The weather may have taken a turn for the worse and is feeling a bit more wintry, but nonetheless, November is still autumn and my current nail design suits the season perfectly.

Autumnal colours, autumnal objects and even an autumnal animal can be found in this week’s Nail Art Wednesday design…

Halloween Blog Posts.

I love Halloween, but I cannot promote my Halloween blog posts all year round and there isn’t enough time around Halloween to post all the Halloween blog posts that I want to. As a result of this, I thought it would be nice to share some previous Halloween blog posts I have written which you may have missed.

Also, I would love it if you would leave in the comments links to your favourite Halloween blog posts on your own blog or someone else’s for me to have a little read!

Halloween Inspired Nail Art: Part Three.

Halloween is less than a week away!

Obviously, I have to have Halloween themed nails over Halloween, so yesterday I went to the salon and had them done especially. I have done some nail designs for Halloween using regular nail polish, but I wanted gel overlays for actually over Halloween so that I wouldn’t have to worry about them and they would last. It would also mean that I could have some Halloween designs that I would not be able to replicate myself.

Halloween Inspired Nail Art: Part Two.

Last year for Halloween I posted a few nail designs on my blog, so this year I decided to do the same again, but obviously with different designs. Also, all the designs for this year are in black and white, unlike the slightly colourful mixture of last year’s, so no dripping blood this year, or Frankenstein’s, but hopefully you enjoy these designs nonetheless.

A couple of the designs in this post are actually inspired by some of my favourite Halloween movies and if you’d like to hear more about what my favourite Halloween movies are you can click here. In the meantime, let’s get into the nails!

My first design probably doesn’t stand out straightaway as being Halloween themed, so I suppose it’s a more discreet option for those of you who don’t want to go too wild for the occasion. So, these are my Beetlejuice nails, inspired by the film:

Autumn Inspired Nail Art.

As an autumn lover I obviously had to bring back Nail Art Wednesday for a few weeks to cover the autumn/Halloween period – that’s right, there’s some Halloween nails in the pipeline too! – so, naturally, let’s start with some autumn inspired nails. Unfortunately, I do have fewer designs to share today than the norm as I got distracted by all the Halloween designs for later this month.

Last year I did some Autumnal Nail Art too, but not all the designs necessarily went to plan. The standout design in that post was my Falling Leaves design which just turned into a terrible and weird mess. So this year, I decided to go a bit simpler with my leaf painting…

Summer to Autumn Nails.

We’re currently in the transitional stage between summer and autumn, so when I went to get my nails done last week I opted for some nails which would reflect that. As eager as I am for autumn and to be able to justify buying lovely jumpers and scarves, I can’t hide that I’ll miss the warmer weather. Of course, living in the UK, the weather is nothing to brag about, but we have still had a handful of really nice, sunny days here and there.

For my nails I kept things very warm with some orange and gold shades and while the orange is quite bright, it is slightly on the darker side of the orange spectrum, therefore making it appropriate as we move into autumn. I was also eager to go for a more orange set of nails because a) I kept things quite void of colour last time and b) orange is a shade I very rarely reach for in almost all aspects of my life. I do love orange, but it’s not a colour that crops up a lot and when it does, it’s often very vibrant.

Products I’m Trying to Finish.

Products I'm Trying To Finish.jpg

As someone who is constantly on the look out for new makeup launches and who has an ever-growing makeup collection, I become eager to test them all out. However, I hate having lots of the same types of products on the go at once, especially if they are in fact good products, or products I’ve spent a bit of money on, so in order for me to open my new products, I have to use up my old ones. In today’s post I am going to talk you through a few items I am currently most eager to use up whether this be because I don’t like them, or to simply make room for new ones.

Marble and Glitter Nails.

I am still getting my nails done every few weeks, so it’s time for me to show you what I currently have on my nails. Life is feeling rather hectic at the moment, so being able to have my nails done is such a huge relief because they can look pretty with minimal effort on my part, plus I don’t have to worry about my nails breaking. I also find that having strong gel nails enables me to do things I otherwise wouldn’t be able to do… like opening drink cans, haha.

Eden’s Semilla: 100% Pure Jojoba Oil.

Jojoba Oil.jpg

I recently received Eden’s Semilla 100% Pure Jojoba Oil and have been using it for the past two weeks. This is a completely honest review of the product and if you like the sound of the product I will leave a link at the end to where you can buy it.

Eden’s Semilla‘s Jojoba Oil is a 100% natural and organic product with a close resemblance to human sebum which we naturally produce through our skin glands. As a result of this, it is incredible as a moisturiser, not only for your face, but your skin, hair and nails. Due to it being all natural this product is suitable for those with sensitive skin, as well as those with dry and combination skin types.

Summer Nail Favourites.

Summer Nail Favourites.jpg

Recently, I haven’t been the most creative when it comes to my nails. I’ve either been lazy and simply done them a single colour, or I’ve been really lazy and had a professional do them for me so that I don’t have to touch them for three weeks. Since gels do dry out your nails, every now and then I do my own nails to give them time to heal and rest, but I still cannot have bare nails. So, today I am going to show you my go to summer nail polishes during these times.
