20121207-220512.jpg

Day 6 of the 12 nails of Christmas!! We’re half way thought and only 6 days till Christmas!

I was looking through various images of Christmas and this seemed to feature a lot in many of the images, red bows, on everything, mistletoe, holly, bells, etc etc. So i thought they deserved their own nails.

‘Practically Perfect’ by No7, ‘Red Shimmer’ by Famous, ‘Red Carnation’, by L.A. Colour, ‘Red Glitter’ by Barry M, ‘Red Carpet’ by Rimmel, ‘Strawberry Fizz’,  by Rimmel, ‘Blackout’ by Rimmel and ‘White on white’ by Revlon.

Geek Series – Pokeball

20120820-003606.jpg

I was thinking about what else i could put in the geek series and i remembered, while at the wedding of my friend a few weeks back, towards the end of the night an amazing moment happened. The Pokemon theme came on, and what made this moment amazing? We all, in unison, without prompting, started singing along, every word, without missing any. It was a beautiful moment.

Anyway that’s what inspired me to do these nails.

‘I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was. To catch them is my real test, to train them is my cause.
I will travel across the land, searching far and wide. Each Pokemon to understand, the power that’s inside.
Pokemon, its you and me, I know it’s my destiny, Pokemon, oh, you’re my best friend, in a world we must defend, Pokemon, a heart so true, our courage will pull us through.’

Anyway……… The colours i used for this look are:

‘White on white’ by Revlon, ‘Blackout’ by Rimmel, and ‘Hot gossip’ by Rimmel.

Plenty more photos after the cut.
