Sherlock Season 3, Ep. 1 Nail Art

To show my love for Sherlock, I decided to do my nails for the third season. I had already watched episode one when I did these nails, so I took some inspiration from John’s moustache and Sherlock’s not-so-permanent moustache.

I went off of these nails and post by Nail Job. I don’t like the way my John nail came out, but I was ready to sleep, so I went with it.


I hardly ever use my tripod for photos of both of my hands, but I really should because I think this may look a little more professional :)

I used OPI – Alpine Snow for my white index fingers and Forever 21 – Lavender for the rest. The glitter is China Glaze – Your Present Required.

I must say that I love Your Present Required! It is the only Holiglaze polish I picked up this year. Actually, I never intended on buying it, but I saw so many beautiful swatches that I knew I had to have it. It was the only one left in the store when I was there, so you can bet I snagged it up!


The rest of the features are done with nail polish, but there were so many used that it’d be crazy to list, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask!


Do you watch Sherlock? Do you have any polishes you never intended on purchasing until some other pesky nail blogger decided to make you swoon?

Thanks for reading!

Mint with Leopard Tips Nail Art

Today’s nails are pretty simple, but I like them very much. I don’t wear leopard too much, but I don’t think anyone could ever really tire of it anyway. Long live leopard (and all of the other “fads” I like. A good trend will last forever.)!!!!



I used China Glaze – Kinetic Candy for my base. I then used L'Oreal – Park Ave Luncheon for the tip. To make the spots, I used NYC – Park Ave. ( I just realized that these nails were meant for Park Ave.)

Faint Holographic Galaxy Nails

I’m finally able to post up to date nails because these don’t exactly have an expiration date like holiday themed nails. Actually, these were the nails I wore for New Year’s. They were originally inspired by Doctor Who because I was going to add a red bow towards the cuticle (to represent the 11th Doctor), but decided against it. Some other time, my dear. Some other time.


I used China Glaze – When Stars Collide for the base and sponged on China Glaze – Get Outta My Space, Cosmic Dust, Don’t be a Luna-tic, Take a Trek, Funky Fingers – Jester, NYC – White Tip, and Rimmel London – Silver Bullet. I also used KleanColor – Holo Chrome and Savvy – Touch of Glitter to accentuate some areas. I added some holographic star glitters and made some stars using a white striper. I added a coat of China Glaze – Fairy Dust over it all.


These nails were lots of fun an rather subtle. Next time I’ll use more white so it’s a little more visible.


Thanks for reading! I hope everyone’s doing well :)

KKCenterHK Skull and Stud Review

I’ve finally made time to post this review that I’ve had on my camera for a few weeks now. I’ve been sent some more products for review by KKCenterHK. This time I was sent a metal skull and some silver studs.
I picked up China Glaze – Bump in the Night on clearance last month and knew it would go well with both of the products. I used it on my ring finger, and to contrast it I used Love & Beauty – Lavender on the rest of my nails to contrast the black.
I simply added the studs on with top coat and added a generous amount of top coat around them to secure them in place. For the skull, I used a bead of acrylic because the back is a bit concave
They all lasted me the day I had them on, but I did take them off before I went to bed, so I don’t know how well they would hold up during slumber :)
I loved how edgy these nail were, yet there was practically no effort put into them. You can pick up the studs and skull at KKCenterHK along with many other nail art supplies.
Have a great week everyone!
