The review

Much like the rest of you, wordpress sent me the summary of my blog through 2012. My blogs 1 year birthday is actually in Feb, but i can’t believe it’s been that long already!

So here’s what they said! Thank you all for reading. And the winner of the facebook fan page giveaway have been selected. I’m waiting for them to respond at the moment. But they only have till tomorrow evening, after that i’ll have to select another winner if they don’t reply.

Crunchy numbers

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 3,700 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 6 years to get that many views.

In 2012, there were 139 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 558 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 80 MB. That’s about 2 pictures per day.

The busiest day of the year was August 5th with 70views. The most popular post that day was my nails for the wedding.

Sorry these look messy in the photo, i’m sure they didn’t when i was taking them, but it seems the light has caught more on here.

I’ve wanted to try doing these for ages. And i’m admitting this is actually being writen and was done at the start of December. I didn’t think my head would feel too good so i did these early.

I hope to wear this to my new years thing, yes i know, a few days back… : S So i’m going to be practicing doing these a few more times before then, this is my first ever go at doing it. And my thoughts are i need to improve. I’ll post a photo of the ones i do wear to the new years party and hopefully it’ll be much better than these. Anyway far too much chatter.

The colours i used for these are:

‘White on White’ by Revlon, ‘Holographic Hero’ by GOSH, ‘Sun Downer’ by Rimmel, ‘Navy Grint’ by 17, ‘Azure’ by Rimmel, ‘Electric’ by Rimmel, ‘Peacock’ by 17, ‘Blackout’ by Rimmel, ‘Electric punk’ by Collection 2000, ‘Pulsating’ by Rimmel and ‘Purple Addict’ by Rimmel.

Christmas nails

So i’ve been painting Christmas nails for you all to see. And annoyingly last night i broke a nail!!! grr. So most of these nails will be painted on fake nails instead.

Sorry i forgot to post on the last scheduled day, I have a few Christmas presents i’ making this year and the deadline is looming and they’re not done : S So i’m going to have to give more time over to completing them in time.

If you want to know what i’m making, let me know and i’ll either do a quick post of link you to my deviant art page when i upload the progress images and finished images.

I love looking at all the nail art at this time of year. It seems like more people try and actually draw instead of using stamps and so on around now, and i love to see what people come up with. Anyway. I’ll stop chatting and get back to writing and scheduling the nails to post

There will be a 1 days of Christmas nails not the song though just 1 nails. I discovered i can’t draw partridges…….

How to … Snowflakes

20121126-212703.jpg

As i said yesterday here is a snowflake tutorial. It’s all quite easy. You just need a very fine brush. So starting with the photo above this you take the colour you use and you start with the white line down the center of the nail. From here you add another two lines to make a 6 pointed star shape in the center of the nail.

This is the starting point for all of the snowflakes! If you just make this every time then it’s all very easy from this point.
