Celebration 500 - Guest Post Louise from Painted Nails and Baking Scales

Hi Goddesses

Today's Guest Post comes from another British blogger, and one I have only gotten to know recently - Lou from Painted Nails and Baking Scales.

I have to say, I LOVE the mani she's done (purple based of course) and it fits PERFECTLY with this being Disney Week on the Superheroes and Villains Challenge.  Take it away Lou!


Goodness, 500 posts! What a brilliant achievement. Hello, I’m Lou and I can be found over on Painted Nails & Baking Scales. But today I’ve written this blogpost for the Lovely Crumpet to help celebrate her milestone. Well we all know
Crumpet loves a bit of nail art AND a bit of purple. Being a bit of a nail art virgin I’ve gone for something safe by anyone’s nail art standards. However, I did use some lovely polishes, so here we go!

First off, I started with the lovely Space Odyssey from NARS. This was released as their limited edition Fashion Night Out polish in late 2011. You can still pick it up if it catches your eye. It’s a super sparkly silver stunner and goes on like a dream….. *swoon*

Now, here comes the nail art! I used my dotting tool to create a series of dots in various places as you can see here. The polish here is by Essence and is called Passion for Fashion. It’s a nice vivid purple cream and I can’t wait to use it again.

Then, because you can never have too much glitter or sparkle on your nails, comes the finishing touch. I’m sure a lot of you have heard about all the great indie nail polish makers, and here is one for you. This is Ursula, from Once Upon a Polish, a fab black and purple mixed shape glitter mix. (yes, that is Ursula from The Little Mermaid). I blobbed a bit one and moved it about until I was happy with it. Love all those glitter pieces, amazeballs!!

So that’s all from me, here is to another 500 fabulous Crumpet posts!!
