Smoosh - green and gold Model's Own

A little while ago I discovered the Smoosh technique of splodging colours together to get a swirly effect, not so dissimilar to using cling film or saran wrap. I've been using an extra big stamping head to splodge colours on then to transfer to my nails.

For this particular one I used Models Own Chrom Gold and Turquoise Hyper Gel. I adore this combination, especially with the gold and have used it to smoosh with other colours since.

What do you think of it?

Easter nails part 3

 Here are my final Easter nails over the weekend. I did the white stamping over a smooshy design I will show in the next post and was my first time trying it out. I used the festive 25 plate from Moyou London once more as I won't be using it again for a while.

How was your Easter? Mine was busy but fun.  The weather was crazy and I tried to avoid Storm Katie at all costs - that was some windy weather out there!
Despite that, I'm loving the longer and brighter days already and the thought it will still be daylight by the time I get home. Finally feels like spring has come!

For those of you who are back at work today may your day be short and remember it's a four day week!

Easter bunnies

Easter is almost over and I'm trying to squeeze in another couple of manis.  I wanted to do a simple pastel one and loved the bunnies in Moyou London's festive 25 plate. To showcase them fully I decided to go for a simple base. I chose this gorgeous pale pink from Models Own in Cashmere Rose.
I actually only put one coat on as the polish coverage was good enough with just the one. I then used Barry M Cotton to stamp the cute little bunnies!

I love how they look. What do you think of it.
