Sorry for the HORRIBLE picture. Hopefully you can make out some of the detail. They are covered in donuts, chocolate bars, ice cream, hearts and rhinestones. There's A LOT of stuff crammed on my nails lol.

Kajablomst - they look pretty good to me :D

I usually use shimmery polishes that aren't very thick as the second color. It gives much better results. Thicker polishes tend to bubble up =/


Vex - Very nice! I love that shade of green *.*

I absolutely love this monochrome look, and your nails look so healthy and well-shaped. Great work. Do you think you could you share a few pointers/do a super-quick tute on exactly how you achieved this effect using a sponge, please?

My boyfriend gave me these tiny cog decals in my Christmas stocking and I figured I would give them a bash for our NYE plans.

Unfortunately the base shade I used is crap (China Glaze Platinum) and takes around four coats to achieve any opacity but it was the palest grey in my selection. In future I think a shade without shimmer would work better as a base too as the blank spaces between the cog spokes are mattified slightly. Nails Inc The Southbank is on my wishlist anyway and would probably be the perfect shade to use. Any recs on other good quality creme pale greys welcomed!
