Has spring spung?

a lovely summer pic of my colourful toes and a pretty flower...
Hi for those of you that know me you will be aware that winter/autumn is my favourite season, but when the sun comes out and daisy's pop up from the ground I can't help but smile. And to add to my new lease of life today I finished school for two whole weeks. OMG. I can't wait, I have so many things to do I don't think I will fit it in to two weeks.

But all this summery weather has got me in the mood for summer beauty looks and outfits and I have already picked out my favourite summer looks that I will hopefully be getting my hands on very soon.

 I don't now what this post is actually about, just a bit of a witter I think. But hope you don't mind sometimes most of the time I just like to witter.

Thanks Beth XXX

happy mothers day

Hey hope you are all having a very nice Sunday, I am. As it is mother’s day I thought I would tell you all haw to give all your mummies a very nice manicure.

(Sorry for the lack of pictures my camera has died on me, I will get them up there as soon as possible)

What you will need:

  • nail file
  • warm water
  • bowl
  • cuticle oil/cream
  • base coat
  • nail polish
  • top coat
  • hand cream

So, step 1) files the nail,

To do this file in only one way to the desired shape (usually rounded or square)

Step 2) soak hands in warm water to soften the cuticles then gently push back the cuticles and apply cuticle oil on.

Steps 3) apply a base coat to the nail.

Steps 4) apply two coats of nail colour.

Steps 5) apply a top coat.

Steps 6) apply a rich hand cream to soften.

Hope everyone has a nice rest of mothers day ....

newspaper nails....

Hey hope you are all well, today I am going to tell you how to create newspaper nails. These nails are something I have been doing for a while but I have been asked to do this by a couple of people so here goes.

What you will need:

*light nail polish

How to:

1) Paint your nails a light colour i picked a very light powder pink from Jessica in breath 499 and let them dry.
2) Cut your newspaper into strips and pour a small amount of vodka into the bowl
3) Take a strip of newspaper and place on nail, dip a finger into the vodka and cover nail in vodka
4) Hold this in place for a few moments then slowly remove newspaper. (if the print is not very dark lay flat again and add more vodka)

Hope you like this I will be doing more nail art soon so tell me what you would like to see.





Thanks Beth XXX
