Guest Post - Emmy Of Neon Sparkly Nails.

Today's guest post is Emmy of Neon Sparkly nails.

Hi, I'm Emmy from Neon Sparkly Nails.

I decided to do an Easter mosaic manicure today.

I started off by painting my nails with Models Own White Light from the Hyper Gel collection and allowed it to dry completely.

Once I had checked to make sure it was dry I started taping off little sections with some striping tape and then filled in each section with different colours, I used Models Own Strawberry Tart, Blueberry Muffin, Banana Split, Apple Pie and Grape Juice.

After allowing it to dry for a couple of minutes I carefully peeled the striping tape off, I then finished with the Collection Sparkle Top Coat.

I'm loving the Models Own scented polishes at the moment, they are perfect for this time of year and I can't wait to use them for more Easter inspired nails.

I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope you feel better soon Emma :)

ThanksEmmy - I love these polishes!  I really should check out Models Own more - the first ones I got were shard glitters with goopy formula and although I have reviewed a couple of other polishes,  I never got around to buying any cremes and these are perfect for Spring!

Magpie Monday - Color Club Halo Hues Swatch Spam

Today's Magpie Monday is a holographic polish fest featuring the Color Club Halo Hues.  Sally Magpie was the first place I had easy access to the Halo Hues, I started off with Kisment and now have six!

I have been able to swatch these over the weekend and get a "proper" picture in the lightbox with DSLR and a phone picture taken in direct sunshine using my HTC One.  The phone pictures are pretty horrible in comparison to the camera pictures, but they show the full intensity of the holo!

All pictures below are two coats, no base or top coats.
