Au Revior to Autumn, Farewell to Fall

We are on the cusp of the changing season, or rather, it's cold and about to get even colder!  So, in the spirit of the changing season, I thought I would do some nail art that can only be described as 'autumntastic' in it's colour scheme (don't worry, I'm not going to try and make 'autumntastic' happen LOL).  This will also be the debut of some American Apparel nail polish on my blog so follow me under the cut for a brief review and possibly more pics of these nails :-)

MS MR (+ Dublin Haul)

So for those who don't follow my twitter or instagram, I was in Dublin this weekend to see one of my favourite new bands, MS MR.  Since I didn't get to do any special nails for Queens of the Stone Age (who I saw last week), I knew I had to do something for this gig.  Follow me under the cut to read about how I did these nails, what they are inspired by and my haul from Dublin.

I rustled these nails together to celebrate my results from university.  I passed my Masters with Distinction!  This means that I'm in a really good position to apply for my Ph.D and funding so finally the wait is over and I can concentrate on not falling up or down the stairs when I graduate LOL.  I'm not ready to change my short bio JUST YET but once graduation comes around, MA Student I will no longer be :(

These are my 'confetti' nails and I think these would be really nice for a Christmas do or some sort of night out.  Goldeneye is just the most AMAZING gold shimmer.  I have two coats on my nails.  It applies smooth and evenly for a great luxe look.  I chose pastel shades for my confetti because I love pastels and these are my celebration nails dagnabbit!  I used a striper brush to apply all the different colours.  It's a pretty simple idea with a big impact.  Change the colours for something more specific like holidays, St. Patrick's Day etc...

What would you put on your nails in celebration?  Let me know in the comments below or through any other site I'm on.  Subscribe or follow to be kept up-to-date on all Flails and Nails goings ons!

Also, keep an eye open because I might just be taking on another social media site (the only one I'm NOT on LOL) so look forward to that, until next time :-)

Gothic Argyle

So this marks the start of what you could call the 'festive' manicures as I'll be doing a mix of cheesy, festive fun nails with some more sparkly, glamorous nails that tap into the latest fashion trends and can be worn during Christmas or Holiday parties.

We're kicking off with these dark and mysterious argyle nails that match with the current 90s grunge/punk trends of AW13/14 in the ever popular winter-y shades of red and berry!
