Ovarian cancer is called the silent killer because the symptoms are vague and not always picked up by GPs. I had problems for about 2 years with stomach aches they put down to IBS, when I was 25 i saw a different doctor and she thought I may have ovarian cysts she sent me for an ultrasound and they found 2 cysts 7cm in diameter each. They were concerned about their appearance and i was sent to the rapid access clinic, this is where you go if they suspect ovarian cancer, they did blood tests which luckily indicated it probably wasn't cancer and they scheduled surgery to get them removed ASAP. It was a hard surgery which took me a long time to recover from because they couldn't remove them via keyhole. Anyway, the point is look after yourself, if your not happy with your diagnosis keep going to different doctors until you find someone who listens. As with all cancer the earlier you get treated the better your chances

These nails are done using a mixture of gel polishes then sweeping a fan brush over before curing to give this effect. I framed the nails with smokey plum and also dragged a little of this over the nail to tie it all in
Thanks for reading

Fun way to wear all my summer colours at once I used Rocco (yellow), Jupiter Blue (green), She's Blushing (corally colour), Raindrops (purple) and My Babe (lilac)
Sunday, 11 August 2013
They are custom blend purple on my thumb, infinitely curious, parasol, solar rays and custom blend green (the pink and green are more vibrant in person)
I can't wear neons too well because of my skin tone but adding the black made them much more wearable for me :D

I used ibd just gel in Hot Springs for the base colour and Juliette and Gerber Daisy for the roses and Jupiter Blue for the leaves which you probably can't see.
Everyone always says they get a lot of compliments on their nails when they have this which is so lovely :D

Pinkies - Rocco
Ring - She's Blushing
Middle - Raindrops
index - My Babe
Thumb - Jupiter blue
She's blushing, Raindrops and Jupiter are probably the most requested colours I have (parasol could add to that in the summer)

ibd just gel polish in whipped cream, black slate and solar rays for the main parts and I used cashmere blush and viking grey to do the distressed look on the thumb and pinkie fingers

I thought this was a good way to wear the neon yellow if your not too keen on the whole nail. The colours are ibd just gel black lava and solar rays. Just gel polish can last up to 3 weeks if cared for correctly (i.e. you don't grate them with a cheese grater no polish can withstand that :D)
I charge £22 for this manicure which includes free removal after 3 weeks

So pretty! I can't stop looking at my nails :D I have got lots of compliments too while out and about which is always nice.
I didn't realise until the day there was a purple nail noh8 campaign on nail blogs so I'm glad I accidentally joined in.

I was totally inspired by several images I had seen on intrinsically florrie and some other bits which can be found on my pinterest nail art inspiration board.
I love the carousel horse and unicorn! They are so pretty and I loved wearing these nails. The little finger is a Rockstar nail (glitter and gel polish) with AB crystals attached. Index is Barielle Princess base colour, middle is Boots 17 Mint Choc Chip, the ring finger base colour is China Glaze Light as Air and the thumb base coat is Barielle Love. The designs were made up of a mixture of those polishes and acrylic paints. These aren't my natural nails I have got ibd gel enhancements on.
I hope you enjoy those and don't forget to check my pinterest boards for inspiration

I hope you are still with me! I'm sorry I don't post art too much these days but I am working really hard on my business and I still have a job so it is hard to fit it all in.
The whole design is made of a series of dots. It is so easy to do just plot your design and go for it. I used a dotting tool for most of it and a striping brush for the few straight lines.
Anyway I hope you enjoy this and it gives you some ideas for your own dotty manicures
