This is my first nail of the week (NOTW) today i have two for you instead of the usual one you see in the blogging world. One is my nail look that i am wearing right now and the other is a Valentine's Day inspired nail look i did at the end of last week. 

This is my nail look at the moment. 

I used -

Beth's Blue
Indian Ocean
Southern Lights

All by Models Own each polish is £5.00 each.

Beth's blue is a lovely creamy pastel shade from the ice cream sundae collection. I used this on each nail before applying southern lights from the wonderland collection on one nail this is a bluey/purple polish with different coloured glitters through out. I also applied Indian ocean from the Beetlejuice collection as a second to last top coat on each nail. Indian ocean is a very sheer polish and alone takes a lot of coats to create full coverage. This goes perfectly with Beth's blue creating a lovely shimmery sparkly look on top with hints of multi-tonal shades. Indian ocean is sheer blue with soft pink undertones. You can make out the pink undertones on my little finger in the picture above. Topping Indian ocean with different shades of polish is the way forward for me, it's become one of my favourite polishes, doing this will make sure it lasts longer then it would using alone.

My valentine's day inspired look.

I used -

Lili's Pink 
Northern Lights

Again by Models Own
I also used a white nail art polish and nail star gems from a different company.

I wanted to create valentine's day look that was more soft and girly yet fun. I decided Lili's pink from champagne collection was the perfect shade it's a soft, pastel pink shade with shimmery glitters through out. I wanted more sparkle so i added Northern Lights from the wonderland collection, this is a pink polish with different coloured glitters through out. I wanted to give this nail look a touch of sparkle. On the thumb i added painted a heart using a white nail art polish (I am not good at nail art) and used Northern lights to fill in the heart. I then added a couple of starts to jazz it up a little.

I hope you like my two nail looks.
