sigma travel blending brush


hey everyone,
so as you may notice i have put up some sigma banners along the side of my blog, this basically means that i am now an affiliate with sigma, which means every-time you click on the banner i get a percentage of money out of it, now i am definitely not doing it for the money because i don't expect anything really, i know sad right, but im doing it for the pure reason that i just love sigma, and when you become an affiliate they send you monthly newsletters and things to tell you what's new and what to expect.


I have put it in my disclaimer so you all understand about it, but anyway back to my point:

Sigma sent me the travel tapered blending brush E25, $11 (£6) and i thought i would tell you abit about it,

Marbled chocolate crumble cake

hey guys,
so if you watched my birthday vlog on youtube, i will leave the link for it here, please go check it out and subscribe!.
i made a birthday cake for myself, and it soooo tasty. I am going to show you how i made it and give you like a step by step guide on how i did it,
i did change the recipe a little bit but i got it from a cookbook called cake by Rachel Allen, who apparently is famous on the cooking station, i don't know sorry =[, but yeah, so i am in no way taking credit for it, i just want to show you how amazing this recipe is and then you might go buy it yourself, ay?

my birthday haul

hey everyone,
so i wanted to show you all what i got for my birthday,
i am certainly not trying to brag, or say that i have more things then you, i am just showing what lovely things i went shopping and got.
i mostly got money so i could pick the things that i wanted to buy, so this is why i have put it into a video form
so please have a look and subscribe to my you tube channel, it would be a wonderful thing if you did!


avengers nail series: thor

hey everyone,
so next up in this series is Thor, now looking on Google and things there is not one nail art design dedicated to Thor what-so-ever,
so with this i had to go off my own imagination and hopefully its come out ok
so:


i have used all Barry m products where possible because i think they are so good for nail art, and they are:

  • Barry m raspberry
  • Barry m silver foil effect
  • Barry m cobalt blue

first step:
paint all your nails the same colours, i used Barry m's raspberry


second step: 
wait till it FULLY dry's, really important!! and then place some celotape diagonally along your nails each side so it creates a v shape, miss the middle finger out though, we will put a design on that.


third step:
paint the v shape with the Barry m silver foil effect and let it dry, peel it off when dry.


forth step:
with the middle finger i took my dotting tool, dipped it in the silver and made a sideways rectangle, i then mixed the red and blue together to create kind of a dark brown colour and used the dotting tool to make a long rectangle in the middle of the silver one, so it makes it look like his hammer, then i waited for it to dry and then added a little zig-zag to the brown section. hopefully it look like a hammer.


and thats it, quite simple, only 3 colours so hopefully very easy to re-create, hope you like, and tell me what you think?

avengers series: captain america

hey everyone,
so today for my nail of the week i thought i would show you all my geeky side, now with the new film that's come out, avengers i can safely say that my geekyness has truly come out.

i lovvvveeee the avengers, i can nearly name them all, which either makes people pretty impressed, or they think "dear lord".
so i thought i would do a little nail art series with them, only the ones from the new film, it doesn't include spider man unfortunately =[,

but i thought i would give myself a challenge, because im not always very good at nail art, but im very creative, so i thought i might be getting better as we go through this, feel free to join in as we go along.
i am only doing one a week, but obviously you can do them every day if you want to, or whatever its fine by me...
soo....
