Beads beads everywhere

Well, I had planned on doing my New Years Eve nails today, but I got sidetracked by all the new beads I bought last week, and ended up making..

I got sidetracked by all the sparklies!  ;)
I sell my creations mainly on my Facebook page at Gypsys Creations.

Ok I am off to do my NYE  nails.. I don't know why, its not like I actually go anywhere for NYE anymore.. lol    I have my polish all picked out though, I decided I want my nails to reflect how I would like this coming year to be..  piccies soon!!  ;)

Giveaway winner and Christmas nails.

Hey all!
Merry Christmas to those who celebrate, hope you all had a great day!  Our was busy, but still quite relaxing as we ended up back at home for dinner with my Mum, so son got a chance to actually play with his toys on Christmas Day, which never usually happens.  He got completely spoilt, as did we all!  Here are a couple of the pressies hubby got me!

Love Thy Polish nail polishes.. they are all so awesome.

Wonder Woman handbag..  Wonder Womaaannnn.. your a wonder, Wondeeerr Woooommmmaaaaaaaaannnnnnnn!!!!!  (Yes, I lurve Wonder Woman!  lol)

Portal earrings.. this is one of my favourite video games, even though it drives me completely crazy.. lol

I am a very happy lass!  :)

I would also like to announce the winner of my 50 followers giveaway.. it is *drumroll*   Teneil M!  Congratulations hun!  I have contacted Teneil, and will be sending her polishes out this coming week.  You can check out her awesome blog at Shades of Phoenix.  
Also welcome to all my newest followers.. I am now up to 100!  I can see another giveaway coming up soon.  :)

Oh and as some of you know, I also make jewellery.. I am having a sale at the moment to get rid of some stock.. 50% off everything in the 'For Sale' album on my Gypsys Creations facebook page..  check it out here!

 Now for some nails!  I went for something simple for my Christmas nails, but I was very happy with how they turned out and got quite a few compliments on them.

Polish used is EmilyDeMollys Path To Glory.. look at the holo-y gorgeousness!!  I was so pleased to get this from my Secret Santa as I had been wanting it forever!  Then I used Scotch tape and striping tape to make the tree.. I think I used a Zoya polish for the tree, then just a layer of Fairy Dust over the tree for more sparklyness.  Then a star decal on top of the tree, and voilĂ !

Did anyone else do Christmas nails..?  I would love to see them.    :)

More Shooting Stars!

Hey all..
Just a quick post, I managed to grab some pic of Shooting Stars and wanted to share.  I was trying to catch the colour shift, as it goes from blue to purple, but just couldn't seem to get it.  

Such a gorgeous polish, I am a sucker for anything with stars.  ;)

Shooting Stars

Wow, 80 followers!  Welcome all, great to have you here!
Only a few days left in my giveaway, so get in while you still can.  :)
It's definitely the silly season at the moment, the stores here have been crazy!  I am so glad I did most of my shopping for my son during the June/July toy sales, has made it alot easier.

I just wanted to quickly share with you what I have on my nails right now.. I was starting to get sick of having Christmas nails so went with this and will do some more xmas nails on Dec 24.

This is China Glaze 'Frostbite' with two layers of Peitas Polish 'Shooting Stars' over the top. Love it!  Excuse the dodgy pic, this was taken with my phones camera.   I only just got Shooting Stars, but couldn't wait to use it!  If you want to see more of Peitas gorgeous polishes, check out her Etsy store.  
More pics to come, if the sun ever decides to show itself today.  :)

It's very cherry!

Hey all..
Sorry for the few days in-between posts, Christmas time can get kind of crazy. ;)
I have gone completely out of my comfort zone with my nail polish this week.  I usually prefer darker colours, or blues and purples.  But the past few days I have been noticing Sally Hansens Cherry Red.   I picked up and put it back a few times, but then it went on sale so I figured what the hell!  I am so glad I did.. its such a beautiful colour!

Forgive the staining around my cuticles.. clean up was horrid, and I have since taken this polish off and the staining is still there.  :(
I would wear this polish again though, and I am so glad I stepped out of my polish comfort zone!  
What's a colour that you never usually wear?

Revlon Galaxy

Hi and welcome to all my new followers!  I have just hit 50, so have decided to have a lil giveaway to celebrate.  There is 5 awesome polishes to win!  Check out the post below to enter.  I will also be making a page for it so the giveaway will be easier to find.  :)

Today I have on my nails a polish I had been lemming over for quite a while, and finally managed to score a bottle!  Revlon's Galaxy... sigh.  I will let the awesome polish speak for itself.

Excuse the odd angles and blurriness on some of the pics, I was trying to capture all the glitter.  Galaxy is classed as a top coat, so I have layered it over OPI Ink.  if you can ever find Galaxy, don't hesitate to buy it, its more amazing than pictures can show.

Oh, and as most if you know, I also make jewellery.  I am currently having an auction to clear out some of my older stock, and support my nail polish habit.  ;)
You can check out the auction album here.

I have decided to take part in Decembers Photo of The day.  I had no idea this was even a thing until I was on Instagram and saw all the hashtags for   #FMSphotoaday.  Once I read up about it I knew I had to take part!  If you would like to find out more, go here

 3.  Something you held:

This is a key chain that was made out of a tracing of my sons hand that he coloured in.  I was holding it for quite a while, remembering how small my baby used to be... now he is up to my shoulders!

New Years Eve!

Well, it's not quite yet thankfully, but I do have the perfect nail polish to wear when it does arrive...  Ulta3 New Years Eve!  Gorgeous blue glitterness.. yes, that's a word.  ;)

 (click to enlarge)

Isn't it beautiful!  I have it layered over Ulta3 Calypso Holiday.. and each bottle only costs $2.  Bargain!  Some of the pics are blurry, as its hard to capture the glitteryness.  ;)
I have seen New Years Eve compared to Picture Perfects new Splash, and honestly they look exactly the same to me.   I would much rather spend $2 on Ulta3 than $10 on Splash!
