World Cup Nail Decals

Hello everyone, I’m back (again!) I haven’t really done my nails much over the last month, I’ve been letting them recover after finishing my acrylic and gel courses (I’m now a qualified nail tech!) I’ve also been trying to make some progress tidying my house out so that I can redecorate one of the bedrooms. A couple of weeks ago I sent THIRTEEN bags to a charity shop!

Obviously I have a lot of swatching to catch up on, but I have a lot of posts planned for the next few weeks.

First up, World Cup nail decals! The 2014 World Cup kicked off in Brazil last week, and as I was so busy I totally forgot to do some sort of nail art for England’s first group game. Then I remembered that I’d bought these decals a few months ago from Born Pretty, so I put them on today, for England’s crucial game against Uruguay later. Hopefully they’ll bring some luck!

The polish I used is Models Own HyperGel White Light and Red Lustre.

Pedal Faster Suzi

Pedal Faster Suzi is from OPI’s Holland collection. I used it recently when I did some dotted nail art and I thought I’d already written about it. I’ve only tried out two polishes from the Dutch Treats mini collection (the other being I Have A Herring Problem), and this is definitely my favourite so far, maybe because it’s pink! It’s not an ‘in your face’ pink, but I still think it’s very girly, a baby pink with a silver shimmer. It was very sheer, and needed 3 coats to be opaque.

I also got Nothin’ Mousie ’bout It in the post today, which is from OPI’s Vintage Minnie Mouse collection, and straight away I wanted to try it out, so not thinking about the colour of the hearts in the polish, I put it over Pedal Faster Suzi, which as you can see, didn’t work too well!

I’m going to try this out over a darker colour over the weekend.

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned entering Umbro’s #KissTheBadge competition, during Euro 2012. They emailed me a couple of days ago to let me know I’d won! I’ll find out in the next couple of days if I’ve won an England shirt signed by the England team, or by Gazza 🙂

Lots of Dots

Last night I went out for a meal, at what used to be one of my favourite Italian restaurants in Durham. Not anymore! I’m quite a fussy eater, so I like Italian’s as they do a lot of chicken, and things weren’t going well when the waiter didn’t seem happy with me not wanting garlic mayonnaise on my starter (I hate garlic) then with how I wanted my chicken. I’ve never had this problem before anywhere, places where they make things from scratch have always been happy to change things slightly for me. Something else I hated was the waiter taking plates away while some people at the table were still eating, so rude! Rant over! 🙂

Anyway, my nails for last night, I didn’t want something plain, I started by painting my nails with Pedal Faster Suzi (which I was sure I’d already blogged about!), from OPI‘s Holland collection, a super girly shimmering light bubblegum pink, then I added some dots, using Nails Inc Westminster, Chinatown, and 2True No. 54.

At the minute I’m watching France v England, currently 1-1 at half time, England took the lead through a Lescott header, then Nasri equalised for France. I’m not sure if I can see England winning, but I hope they can at least get a draw! I’ve got my shirt on while I support the boys!

Someone we know has gone over to the Ukraine for the game, and has taken our Sunderland flag, which is up in the stadium, and it was on tv just before kick off!

Also if you happen to follow me on twitter or instagram (safclyndz), you might have seen me enter Umbro’s #KissTheBadge competition, here’s my entry!

Is anyone else watching Euro 2012? Who do you all support?
