Necroscope Wamphyri inspired nailart



Hey friends

Happy Halloween! 
I was inspired to do a Halloween nailart by seeing the front cover of a horror vampire novels called Necroscope.Brian Lumley wrote his dead-waking, ground-breaking horror novel Necroscope®, featuring Harry Keogh, the man who can talk to dead people. Here is more about Brian and his books on his web site click HERE.
The Illustration of the book covers is done by Bob Eggleton check his web site HERE


I have to say these novels aren't my cup of tea far to scarey for me but my Husband Ste loves them!  

Here is the items I used to create this Wamphyri nailart


  • Max factor polish in Ruby fruits.
  • BeautyUK Ultra gloss clear top coat.
  • Technic polish in Black.
  • Various colours of Acrylic paints and small brushes.
  • Make-up sponge.


I started with using a gradient effect on all nails using the 2 shades black and the ruby in the middle and black dabbing them on with a sponge I did this about 3 times then I applied the top coat.
I did the Wamphyri on the thumb nail freehand using various acrylic paints and gave this a top coat.




I really enjoyed doing this Nailart I hope you like it too!
I have some product reviews coming up in the next few days 
thanks for stopping by.

I had a lovely day and got some cute PJS from my daughter with chocs and some cash from my parents and from my wonderful Hubby Ste a lovely AA Tanzanite & White Zircon 9K White Gold Ring and is a beautiful blue/purple colour.I will post all about the ring soon.

Now as we all know Autumn is here the leaves are turning brown golden colour and falling.I decided to do a quick french manicure type of nailart with  Freehand Autumn leaves.


  •  Jess polish in Frenchie.
  • Sinful Colors polish in Social Ladder.
  • W7 Glitter polish in Bronze Debris.
  • Catrice polish in Shake it flake it.
  • Max Factor polish in Ruby Fruit.

I started with 2 coats of the frenchie polish then 1 coat over that with the Sinful colors polish.
When dry I went across each nail tip using the Ruby Fruit shade and when dry I went over it using the W7 glitter and Catrice polish over all the nails.
I then hand painted each leaf with Acrylic paints gave the nails a top coat to seal it in.

Gemporia Jewellery Wishlist

Hi friends

I hope you are looking forward to a nice weekend.
I have a different kind of post for you today,I wanted to introduce to you a fabulous Jewellery website called Gemporia  also seen on tv called Gemstv

You may have heard of it before in case you haven't here is a little piece of information about them...

About Us

Gemporia offers the very best in stylish, affordable and responsibly made jewellery.

At Gemporia, we believe that beautiful jewellery shouldn’t cost the earth, nor should it be mass produced or run of the mill. But it should leave a legacy, for those who wear it and those who help to make it. That’s why we only use genuine gemstones and precious metals to make our jewellery in limited runs. It’s also why we work closely with The Equal World Foundation to aid communities where gemstones are found, educating and supporting them so they can grow as we do.

Our aim is to be original, inspiring and ethical.

My wishlist


32.00ct Blue Topaz Sterling Silver Bracelet
A charming Bracelet from the Tookalon collection, made of Sterling Silver featuring 32.00cts of glorious Blue Topaz from Brazil.

A stunning Ring from the Lorique collection, made of 18k Gold featuring 21.38cts of amazing Minas Gerais Kunzite and dazzling Diamonds.

One of the most beautiful aspects of Kunzite is its ability to retain light. The effect is known as
p h o s p h o r e s c e n c e, which gives the gem the ability to glow in the dark. This luminous appearance is due to the fact that Kunzite is able to absorb energy and slowly releases it in the form of light. The effect is similar to luminous hands on a watch, which help you tell the time when you wake in the middle of the night.







1.34ct AA Tanzanite 9K White Gold Earrings £99.00
A stunning pair of Earrings from the Jacque Christie collection, made of 9K White Gold featuring 1.34cts of charming AA clarity Tanzanite from Tanzania.

Cancer Research ‘paint for life trio’ nails

Hi friends

BeautyUK  developed a unique boxset in aid of raising money for Cancer Research UK. Consisting of three utterly gorgeous shades of pink, the ‘paint for life trio’ and individually named each bottle with ‘hope’, ‘strength’ and ‘love’.
And remember.. £1 from every set sold goes to this amazing charity!

I decided to do a simple nailart in support of this charity to help raise awareness.
The items used are listed below.

  • Paint for life trio boxset in  hope strength love.
  • BeautyUK 5 in 1 base & Top coat.
  • Sinful Colors polish in Pinky Glitter.
  • Make-up sponge.
  • Pink pearl beads.
  • Pink Rhinestones.
  • Dotting tool.
 

I painted a base coat first then I painted a gradient effect using a make-up sponge painting the 3 trio polishes across the sponge then dabbing it onto each nail repeated this step 3 times leaving the pointer finger out as I painted that using the Hope polish I gave it 3 coats.
When tacky I gave the nails a top coat to blend the colours.
Starting on the thumb and middle and little finger I painted the glitter Sinful Colors polish,once dry on the thumb I used the dotting tool and painted the ribbon using the Hope polish.
On the pointer finger I gave it 1 more top coat when tacky I placed some pink pearl beads in the shape of the ribbon.I did this same step on the ring finger using the pink rhinestones. it's all done.


Thanks for stopping by I hope you liked my nail art!
More posts shortly.

I gave all nails (apart from pointer finger) 2 coats of the Maybelline polish then when dry I gave the thumb a top coat while tacky I place on some 3D gold cross studs.
The pointer finger I painted 2 coats of the Sally Hansen polish then when dry I went over the nail with the O.P.I shatter polish.gave it a top coat then while tacky I placed some Black and 1 Gold rhinestones on in the shape of a cross.
The middle finger I simply gave a top coat and stuck on some pearl black beads around the nail.
