Tiger Nails and Crappy Topcoat...

I did tiger nails... yeah just normal tiger nails. I know it's unlike me to do something common, but it had to be done. People go insane for tiger nails in real life. I would like to say that I am NOT IMPRESSED with this topcoat: China Glaze Fast Forward.
I painted these with acrylic paint that dries suuuper fast! Waited an HOUR before topcoating and I painted it on quite thick [thats what you do when you dont wanna smudge] and I STILL had smudges. I used Seche Vite [awesome] from the middle finger to the pinky. But look at the index finger....[on the right]

Yup. I've tried quite a few topcoats before. High-end salon ones and crappy drugstore ones. They're all different but this is definitely the worst one. Luckily I got it for free with my purchase of two China Glaze polishes at Sally's. But if you want a fast dry topcoat that doesn't smudge, don't waste your money on China Glaze Fast Forward. It's awful.

I did love the base colour - it's called "Y'all come back now, ya hear?" or something like that.... hahaha. It had a kind of jelly finish after three coats. Lovely and shiny ahhhh...

My nails are short... super short. That's what I call this length anyway. Moving house takes a looooong time! They'll be back to their original length by the time I've installed my cooker...

Here's the mental video. WOOHOO!

Not much else to say... love u guys

Purple Zebra Nails! And stuff like that....

So here's yet another water marble - I said I wouldn't just keep doing water marble designs unless I could think of something a bit different and original. And hopefully this one is.... or I haven't seen a purple zebra water marble anyway.

HOW COOL IS THIS.... They randomly happened to match my boyfriend's mum's birthday cake.

Far out, man.

And here's the sexy video. WOOHOO!

In other news, I recently found a YouTube nail art thief. She goes by the username lulucutieee.
She has stolen videos from MimiMemeko, ykhearts and goldiestarling and uploaded them as her own and tried to pass them off as her own work. Seriously I don't usually go round telling people off or trying to stop people misbehaving - leave em to it and karma will get them eventually, right? Well I couldn't keep quiet on this one. I absolutely had to comment telling her what she was doing was selfish and out of order... cos it is!!
They're not even my videos she's stolen and I'm already angry, so fuck knows how I'd react if she had stolen one of mine. I felt that the YouTubers she stole from had the right to know so I sent them a polite message to advise. Fortunately for this dirty stinking cheat, these YouTubers haven't been online for a while so she deleted my comments and continued.  I did re-comment... she's obviously not clever enough to block me...
My favourite gurus work hard to gain their views and subscribers so why the hell should she deserve any credit for it?!! She even has the nerve to spam people with "Check out my videos" !!
I wish to expose this thief. Here's a link to her channel so you can see for yourself:
clickkkk here....    xx

Hopefully this link won't work for long because her account will get suspended for violations....
Thiefs, liars and cheats disgust me. They bring out my inner bitch.

Despite that, the birthday cake was tasty and my nails were appreciated by many.
I have Pacman nails, Domo nails, and Tiger nails amongst others, but am unsure which to upload next... soooo many decisions ohhh I have such a hard life!

Oh well... at least they're actually mine. HA! Sorry. That was my inner bitch again...

CONGRATULATIONS to my lovely YouTube friend IndigoNova1 for becoming a YouTube partner! This lady deserves all the credit in the world for the awesome videos she's shared with us.
Check her out and go stroke her lovely new banner... ahhhh :)

Johnny Depp Village, Insanity and um....Nails. YAY!

So I've actually done more nails recently and here I am sharing them yaaaay!

Fact of the matter is, I'm moving house which involves sanding and painting walls, lifting heavy objects everywhere and basically doing everything that would challenge my talons... so I couldn't be arsed to do all the careful stuff and just cut them of instead. It's MUCH easier to do the "manly" jobs and they'll grow back in a few weeks...

I haven't actually filmed anything for YouTube for about a week [which is a long time!] but luckily I have plenty of vids saved up so I won't be gone....

Whilst my nails are short and sweet I decided to test out a few more colours with water-marbling. I went with "hot and cold" - the hot hand turned out awesome! But the cold hand kinda failed in the water and looks a lot more discreet than I wanted... but hey ho people still notice them so...YAY!

Cousin Rachel [my number 1 client] brought London Rachel round for Sunday dinner - seriously it's like fucking Christmas every week in our home. But it's full of love so can't complain ;)

Yep, so we hung out and painted nails after food. It was mental.

London Rachel chose my Pink Snail Nails but didn't think I could paint them on her because my nails were at least twice as long as hers when I had them on mine...

SEE.. you can paint anything on any nails they don't have to be long!!

And Local Rachel went with leopard print. She picks similar designs a lot of the time but she has her own style that she likes and I never get bored of painting hers. Even if it's just leopard print. Leopard print looks awesome on everyone, all the time. YAY!

Speaking of leopard print, here's my right hand from last week. It has appeared in a video and there is another pre-filmed video starring these rainbow babies as my painting hand. But I am not making a tutorial for them simply because there are too many rainbow leopard nail art vids on YouTube, I've already done three leopards and I like my designs that I film to be original.

I know it's still early and we barely even celebrate Halloween where I live, but I totally already uploaded two more halloween designs.
I wanted to make some sort of spider web water marble but I didn't want to do one similar to SimpleLittlePleasues [typo intentional] black and white spider web design she did last year so it ended up being a swirly marble with added plastic bag bat deco thingies instead. I still wanna do a spidery water marble but I won't until I can think of something more original and have the colours I want that will spread.
Here's my bat video. Yay!

And for my next video, I went in the complete opposite direction and painted Peepo Zombie nails.
You know these? Painted a while ago...?

I decided to do a... Zombie Spin off, if you like. And it feels like it's been a while since I painted my short nailed creepy hand so this is what I came up with...

What I love about Halloween is that the nail art and make-up are sometimes so easy they can be done by a five year old and still look realistic. If you're going for a gory, undead bloody cut-up uglified zombie style look, shaky hands and messy clumsy lines and secret fuckups are no problem AT ALL!
So if you're having one of those "Retard Fuckup Painting" days, Peepo Zombies are the nails to be painting!
Cuteness, elegance and class are not included or intended in this tutorial.

May I take a moment to mention blogger Kirshten - she re-created my Rainbow Flower Water Marble with paint instead of water marbling and I thought it looked awesome. I like to blog things that make me smile and this totally did.

Check em out, man!!

Wicked. Thanks Kirshten for sharing!!

Ok I'm sorry I've still not sorted out my comments so I still can't reply to my comments, or comment other people's posts either :( the procedure for fixing it is complicated and I may require male assistance because I suck at technology. Seriously I'm so crap.
I used to "Live Electricals" too. Hahaha. How I managed to keep that up is beyond me....

But I will have it sorted soon.
Once I'm fully moved into Johnny Depp Village.
Yep! He lives in my village. Or he has a house there, anyway.
That's probably the awesomest thing ever. I'll stalk him, make friends with his wife and be her personal nail technician and they'll employ my boyfriend as their private chef [cos he rules like Gordon Ramsay] and we'll all live happily ever after.

Then I'll sort my comments. When all that stuff happens. Which it will. Soon.
And a pink helicopter.
Come join me.
