Things you'll need:
Polishes: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, pink, purple, black, basecoat & topcoat.
nail art brush thin paintbrush
Step by step how-to:

1. Start by painting your nails with a basecoat to protect your natural nails. Allow to dry.

2. Paint a red line across the bottom of your nails (it doesn't have to be neat; it all adds to the effect!)

3. Moving up your nail, paint an orange line,followed by yellow, then green, then blue, then pink, and finally purple. Allow to dry, add a topcoat, and allow that to dry.

NOTE: the colours should go in order of the rainbow. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo (I used pink to add more colour instead of 2 purples), Violet.

4. Take your nail art brush / thin paintbrush, and dip it into the black nail polish. Gently, make some random zebra lines on your nails (they don't have to be perfect!) The lines can, of course, differ in size, but try not to make them too thick.

Add a topcoat, and you're done!

In just FOUR easy steps, you could have these nails.
They attract a lot of attention, and they're SUPER easy!

Let me know if you give it a go :)

 Good Luck!

Nail art

Girls, I have a confession to make... I have something to say, and I really need to get this off my chest...


I love making crazy, weird, colourful, girly and different designs on my nails. I've got quite a large collection of nail polishes (around 65-75 normal polishes and 24 nail art pens). I have dotting tools, nail art brushes, glitters, fimo canes and more. I've also got loads of sheets with nail stickers on and I'm always switching up my nail designs. When I get bored of doing nail art (VERY RARE!), I like to have my nails a nice nude baby pink or a vibrant colour which makes my hair pop!

I get some of my ideas from YouTube videos but I always add my own touch and rock it myself. When I'm feeling very creative, I invent my own little designs. My favourite nail art design I have done is rainbow zebra print. It didn't take long to do, yet every time I wear it, I get compliments; even when I pay for items in the shop! Loves it.

Here's my nails with the rainbow zebra print design

What do YOU think? I love it!
Lots of people have said I should be a nail technician, but to be honest, I haven't thought much about it. Who knows, though? ;)

If you're interested in how I do this design, post a comment below and I'll get back to you with the steps I took to create it. I hope you like it, and I'll upload more of my nail art designs soon!

My PINK hair!

Loves it <3 Ugh sunburn

My hair story

I've had more hair colours than you've had hot dinners ;) Not really, but I've had a good few. I'm going to take you through my "hair story" and I've included some pics of my hair in different colours. Enjoy :)

This is my natural hair colour (the lighting makes it look blonde, but it's actually mousey brown!) This picture was taken when I was in secondary school, I was never brave enough to do funky colours (probably as we weren't allowed to in school, as it was a "distraction"... Pfttt!)

When I left school, I decided to dye my hair black... I loved it, so shiny and healthy, and although it made me look even more pale (shh, I'm Irish!), I think it really suited me. I kept it black for ages, then I got bored and the rebel inside me decided to show it's face. BIG MISTAKE!! 
When I bleached my hair, I put more on the ends as I thought I'd have a lot of colour build up on the ends... Arghhh, I washed it off after the recommended time. My roots were gorgeous blonde, but the rest of my hair was stringy and snapped off in chunks as I washed it. I knew what was happening but I didn't want to think about it. Naturally, I cried as I knew my hair was snapping off and it was going to be soo short. After a teary trip to hairdressers, I returned with blonde roots and the rest of my (SHORT!!) hair brassy. Yuk. I put a normal blonde dye over it, and it was fine. I kept this up until it grew  a bit, then I added my extensions and it was a perfect match!

Again, my little rebel streak came out when a friend came to visit. She had blue hair and I loved it, so we dyed mine blue :) I loved it and surprisingly, it lasted for ages and faded to a nice light blue. (excuse the silly pose, I don't even know, hahaha!)

After the blue was annoying, I put a blonde dye over it and it covered the blue straight away, as it was only semi-permanent. I put a hot pink in and the result was amazing; I got so many compliments and it suited me a lot, even though I have the palest skin ever! It lasted forever, and faded to a nice baby pink, but by that time, I was already planning my next colour... Which, for me, was a bit of a shock.......

Yup, chestnut BROWN! It was gorgeous and everyone said it really complemented my skin tone and green eyes. I loved it and it was beautiful with a tan and a nice baby pink lipstick.

BACK TO BLACK! I know, naughty naughty, I lost all (well, most!) my hair to get rid of black, then I went back to it. But I loved it and it was the best colour to have that made my hair look so healthy and shiny. I dyed my extensions black and curled them a lot, so I got loads of compliments on my look, which is always a good thing. It wasn't long before I was craving yet another change...

I was feeling pretty adventurous one day, so I decided to take a chance and bleach a small section of my hair. I did so, and it turned out fantastic (it felt so healthy too, which was odd!). I added a gorgeous turquoise colour and it really made my hair "pop". I loved it and it was cute as it faded to a light teal-ish colour, which I loved!

As my hair grew, so did my desire for... PURPLE HAIR!! I used a blonde dye on the same section of hair and put a semi-permanent purple on. It was gorgeous and again, I got loads of compliments (I must sound so conceited right now! hahaha!) It was a change, which I needed and loved.

Weeks and weeks later, I bleached the rest of my hair and went a darkish red for a short amount of time. It faded fast so I put a semi-permanent purple over the top, and I was surprised that it actually took to my hair! I loved it <3

My favourite hair colour of mine so far.. BLOOD RED! It attracted a lot of attention wherever I went and people were constantly asking what products I used etc. I bleached and dyed my extensions to match too, and it was perfect! This hair colour has gotten me more compliments than all the rest put together. I had it for ages but I didn't like how it faded to a kind of orange colour. To refresh it, I just put red over and it was vibrant as hell! Loves it.

At the moment, my hair is pink (I miss my red!!!) I'm gonna see how I get on with pink but I'm loving it so far. I'll have a picture up very soon, my camera is acting up!

Loves it! If there's anything you want to know, ask and I'll answer as best I can! <3

Loves it!

I'm not really a 'television' sort of girl. I don't watch much tv, only a few soaps (my fiancé is usually watching football anyway!)

I've taken to watching some shows online, and just the other day when I went to see my family, my brother gave me a loan of some DVDs to take home and watch... The Simple Life - Seasons 2, 3 and 4! You know the show I mean.. Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, travelling across parts of the US, doing internships, living the simple life. I love it! ♥ So obviously, I couldn't wait to get home to watch them.

It's awesome to see how the girls ATTEMPT to adapt to "normal" life, as they're both American rich girls. It's hilarious and never fails to make me laugh!

Check it out if you haven't already :)
