Pound Shop & Kleancolor Blue Holo

I recently bought 2 polishes from the pound shop, that's two for a pound not each!  You never really know what they are going to be like, but hey ho thought I'd give them a go, afterall it's only a pound.  Not bad really and with Kleancolor Blue Holo on the ring finger.

And here's the pair, thinkK i'll give the purple one whirl next time.....

Home Made Water Decals

I decided to have a go at creating my own nail Water Decals and it was actually easier than I thought.  I bought a sheet of water decal paper off Ebay, you can buy as little as one sheet at a time, printed my photo onto it, cut out the image, gave it a coat of top coat to seal it in, waited for it to dry, put in water, removed backing and placed on nail with top coat on top, now I've got my pussy on my nails!!  Love my Bobs x

And here is my handsome man...
