How to Stop Biting and Start Growing Your Nails!!

Hey guys!!!

Firstly apologies, my blog posts are few and far between right now!! I'm so busy and it seems to be dark all the time (depressing)

So a lot of people have been asking me nail related questions particularly on how I stopped biting my nails. 

I was a HORRENDOUS nail biter as you can see in this picture!

Disgusting right???

It takes a LOT to stop biting your nails, I don't want to ramble on and write loads so I am going to link you to my Youtube video where I describe how and why I stopped biting, and how I got my nails healthy.

Hope you like it guys, and I really hope it helps you too :) 

Muchos Love

Flamingo Nails!

Hey guys!! Hope you’re all great, sorry it has been a while since my last post, been a busy one recently!!

So not long ago I tried out flamingo nails. I had literally so many comments on these!! I guess its because they’re bright and eye catching....

So I started with a base colour of Essie – Bikini So Teeny, a gorgeous blue that I have been using a lot recently as its soooo pretty. Then I used a dark pink for the main body and neck of the flamingo, then a light pink, black and white for the dealing.
I have put a full video tutorial of this look on my Youtube channel. You can see the video here.

Hope you like it guys, don’t forget to tweet me a pic if you give it a go!!

Nails for Movember!!

Ok, ok, so I know I'm a little early but I couldn't resist some moustache nails!!

Originally I was just going to do moustaches on my first and third finger and dots on the rest. Then I thought it looked a little plain so I added a top hat!!

I used Barry M - Peach Melba for the base colour, and then I used a dotting tool, a toothpick and a bit of patience.... Ok a lot of patience, to do the details. This was easier to do than I thought and it went right first time :)

I posted these on Instagram (@happyamz) and it got a great response. 

Have you done Movember nails? Tweet me your pics if you do!!

Super-Colour Fabu Lipstick!!!

So this is another post on another AWESOME Soap and Glory Product!!! 

This is a lipstick from their make up range - their Super Colour Fabu Lipsticks (yes that's actually what's written on the packaging!)

I bought mine in the colour Pom Pom - a deep wine red which is PERFECT for Autumn!

I have got to say, big thumbs up to S&G again, this product is fantastic! 

For a start the packaging is excellent as usual; and another great quirky name. There is even the staple S&G logo stamped into the lipstick. They really have paid attention to detail! 
The formulation is gorgeous! It's a very creamy lipstick and lasts really well on the lips without cracking.

You can see the colour on my lips in my most recent YouTube video here.

This lipstick is £9 

Overall I am a huge fan! Check it out in your local Boots!

New Love: Nail Stamping!

Like most people I have seen all the rage about Konad and the designs you can create with it. However at £6 per plate I didn't really want to start buying them.
So then I stumbled across Bundle Monster, who make basically the exact same thing!!
I bought their 21pc kit and bought a Konad stamper from eBay. You get 21 plates for just £14.99 which is so cheap!! These are available in America as well as UK and you can buy them here.

I for one am REALLY impressed with the quality of these plates. For the price I'd definitely recommend them! 

Here are a couple of designs I've created so far....

Lips using stamp plate BM02

Chains using stamp plate BM12

I have had a lot of fun trying these out and I strongly recommend them to anyone who wants to give stamping a go!

Nails the Lads will enjoy!

So obviously I do my nails a lot, it's something I really enjoy. So here's a couple of designs that the boys in your life might like. 
Both of these were just taken from the logos of these companies. They were done with a fine detailing brush and a steady hand. No genius trick to doing it, just a lot of patience :) 

Jack Daniels Nail Art

Hooters Nail Art

Hope you like them boys and girls!!! If you do give any of my designs ago don't forget to tweet me a picture of tag me in any instagram photos :)
