The writing's on the talons

Morning! Today I'm going to visit my mum to practise doing gel extensions for the very first time on a human! I'll let you know how it goes and put pictures up so you can see how they turned out soon! Hope you have a fab Saturday and don't forget to keep cool and covered in suncream! And don't forget to enter my giveaway here! You have about 18 hours left!

Today I'm going to show you a graffiti mani I did using a nails inc concrete effects polish called London Wall! As well as this polish I also used some acrylic paints. 

I really love this polish! It's a really weird texture and people always comment on my nails when I wear it! To do this mani I used two coats of the polish with no topcoat. I also didn't topcoat over the acrylic paint which I usually do to stop the design scratching off. However, if you topcoat the concrete effects polish the topcoat smooths it out and ruins the effect! Luckily the texture grips the paint really well so it doesn't scratch off!


When the polish had dried I used acrylic paint and small brushes to do the designs over the top. I just wrote random stuff like 'Taz was ere' and my initials. I also did a 'save earth' graffiti nail and one with a face that had 'X's instead of features etc.


This is the finished design! 


Get Nailed and write it on a wall ;)
