#NailIt4Rhinos Nail Art – Save the Rhino

Hey everyone! Bet you’re surprised to see me on a little ol’ Tuesday! 🙂 Hope you’re having a good week so far. Today I have an important cause to bring to your attention – it’s the #NailIt4Rhinos campaign by Save the Rhino, which will hopefully be all over your social channels today as it’s World Rhino Day (22nd September)!

Save the Rhino are a UK conservation charity who are dedicated to the protection of all 5 rhino species in the world. Rhino poaching as at an all time high with a devastating 95% reduction in live rhinos since the beginning of the 20th century. In the world today there are just 29,000 rhinos left living in the wild, each of which are highly threatened by the poaching trade. In South Africa alone, one rhino is killed every 8 hours, and if poaching continues at its current rate there will be no rhinos left in the wild in just 11 years time. Save the Rhino hope that the #NailIt4Rhinos campaign will help raise awareness of the threat of poaching, but also (on a happier note) to raise donations for the charity.

Oh also, I’ve reshaped my nails! 🙂 let me know what you think!

Essence Summer Nail Art Blogger Challenge

Hey everyone! I’m sorry I’ve been away for a couple of weeks. I’ve been having a bit of a rough time of things lately, but I’m hoping if I pour my attention into little projects like blogging more often and improving my site, it’ll help distract me! Hope you’re all doing well.

At the end of August (yup… sorry Essence!) I was kindly sent a goody bag of Essence products to create a nail art look with, as an entry to the Essence Summer Nail Art Blogger Challenge. I think this may be a farewell wave to the summer… as it’s now midway through September and increasingly rainy and cold in England!

Anyway, here’s the look I came up with 🙂

Seaweed Nail Art – MoYou Doodles Plate 07

Hello friends!  I’m afraid I’ve another stamping manicure to show you today – I’ve caught the stamping bug well and truly and I don’t think it’s going anywhere soon! 😛

Andy was kind enough to treat me to three stamping plates from MoYou London – eek! I was so excited it was ridiculous! They arrived two days ago and I would guess I’ve spent a good 8 hours just playing around with them. And during that playing around time, I came up with this manicure 🙂

This is possibly my favourite stamping plate in the world ever, so of course I had to show you this one asap! I’ll be using more of it in the future, but for now I’m showing you the seaweedy bits!

Blue & Silver Meadow Stamping

Hey everyone! I’m back with some more stamping, I’ve got really into it lately! The lovely Charlie of Pocket Money Polishes has lent me 24 (24!!!) MoYou stamping plates to play with… I am far too excited about this!

I had to start somewhere, so I decided to do a grey-blue style manicure to match the weather we’ve been having lately. And then some silver fieldy stamping to make it a bit more fun 🙂

I am still getting the hang of stamping so bear with me if the designs come up a little uneven!

Speckled Blue Gradient Nail Art

Hey everyone! I hope you’re having a great week. I’ve been having a bit of a weird one – my teeth have got SUPER sensitive and I basically can’t talk half the time because my mouth is in so much pain haha. But luckily no talking is required for blogging 😉

It’s been quite a while since I’ve layered glitter nail polish over a base colour, and this week I fancied doing something a little different with it. I’m pretty happy with how these came out, I haven’t done a gradient in a loooong time! They remind me of speckled eggs 🙂
