Kryolan Nail Color in GRACEFUL
I am absolutely in LOVE with this colour!! I don’t really know how to describe it- a kind of pale turquoise maybe? But it looks so beautiful!
I really am a huge fan of Kryolan products so was definitely excited to try their nail products.
I really love this colour however the product was slightly disappointing. The formula is very thin and quite streaky meaning I needed 3 thick coats to get the block colour you see in the pictures. Even then I still feel as if it could do with another.
Despite this fact- did I mention the colour!? Its just sooo pretttyyyy!!
It dries with a nice glossy finish and I think it would look just FAB with some black half moons!
You get 11ml of product which is a fair amount.

Halloween Glitter Blood- NAILS!!
I looooooove Halloweeeeen!! I really enjoyed doing my glitter eye look so I thought I would try it on my nails!
HOW DO CREATE THESE NAILS:
Paint your nails all black. I used 17 Fast Finish in Nightshade. £2.99
For my thumb I covered my half moon at the bottom of my nail then painted the rest with a mattefying polish. I used Essie’s Matte About You.
Using a red nail polish, paint the end and then gently create a ‘dripping’ effect. Start from where you want the drip to end and then carefully drag upwards to the edge of the nail.
Repeat on all your nails using different size drips. (Sorry the lighting went all yellow!)
Finally, go over the top of the drips with a red glitter nail polish. I used Barry M’s Red Glitter £2.99
This is so easy to do and really effective!! You need a steady hand as it can get a bit fiddly, but its a lot of fun!
Hope you like this look- have a go!!
Creative nails with Accessorize’s Metalize Nail Polish!
I used Illamasqua’s Monogamous Nail Varnish as my base then used cellotape to create the triangles. I used Accessorize Metalize nail polish in Copper and Jewel.
I then used a thin brush and a black the line the edges.

Blended Nail Tutorial!
I love the look of nail colours perfectly blended like an airbrush effect, but can’t afford to go the salon every week to get them done. So here is an easy and cheap alternative to creating this look!
YOU WILL NEED
- A white nail varnish - I used a No7 white from a french manicure set I had lying around. A good white to use is Claire’s Nail Polish in Snowball-£2.50
- 3 Nail Varnish Colours- I used Miss Sporty’s Paparazzi and Barry M’s Blueberry and Berry Ice Cream Nail Paints.
- A latex sponge- you can pick these up in Poundland (obviously for a pound) and you get a bag full!
HOW TO CREATE THIS LOOK
- Firstly, you want to paint your nails white. This creates a base colour for the varnishes and makes the colours more vibrant. If you want your nails to have a metallic look, you can use a silver for your base.
- Next, take your sponge and cut it so that the end is the size of your largest nail.
- With your colours, paint the sponge end in strips of colour in the order you want it on your nails.
- It doesn’t have to be neat but you want to apply a fair amount as the sponge with absorb the colour.
- Dab the sponge onto the nail rapidly to blend the colours into each other, remember to get the sides and edges of the nail.
- It is a messy process and will get onto the surrounding skin, however it is really easy to remove. It should either just peel off or soak your hands in warm water when they are dry and it will peel off.
- Finally add your top coat (I used a glittery one for mine) and voila!
You can use any colours you like but it is best to use ones that will blend well. Try to avoid colours that mix to make other colours for example- if you want yellow-blue-pink the yellow and blue will mix in the middle to make green. Its perfect if you want this effect, but not so much if you don’t!
You can use as many different colours as you like and the longer the nail the easier it is to fit them all on!
