Today I’m back with another awesome The New Black set. This time one of their duos of the Super Swagger line. The Super Swagger duos are two polishes, one has a matte finish, and the other has a shiny finish. This obviously leans itself towards awesome nail art!
The New Black Super Swagger set I got is the red set called Claret Cream Shine. The other two sets are a black set called Ink Cream Shine and a blue set called Indigo Cream Shine. All three sets feature a lighter colour and a darker colour. The Claret Cream Shine set features a brilliant bright red (shiny) and a stunning deep burgundy red (matte).
It took me a while before I knew what type of nail art I wanted to create with this set. In the end I settled for a chevron manicure using nail art brushes. I sadly didn’t use tape so my lines aren’t perfect. I’m much too impatient for tape manis and I find cutting stationary tape such a hassle.
I still really enjoyed how this manicure turned out! The two shades work beautifully together and create a nice contrast in both colour and finish. The matte nail polish is absolutely flawless. Make sure to check out the bonus swatch of the matte shade after the jump!
You can find the Super Swagger Claret Cream Shine set for €13.95 on The New Blacks website. Once again I can’t praise the formula of The New Black enough! The polishes glide on like butter and have flawless coverage. It’s such a shame they’re only 4ml a bottle. The New Black currently only sells nail art sets (which are awesome!) but I personally would be very excited if they brought out a range of full-size polishes. What do you think? Let me know in the comments!

I’m wearing red on my nails today, it’s been ages since I wore red. I became a bit bored with red after wearing it so much during my teens, but now I’ve come to appreciate it again. It’s always stylish and never out of fashion. You’re never too young or too old to wear red, it always looks amazing.
Here are a few suggestions for every budget:
Chanel Dragon. €21,50
One of the most popular China Glaze colours ever, Ruby Pumps. €6,95
OPI I’m not Really a Waitress. €12,95
Rimmel Red Carpet. €6,99
Catrice Bloody Mary To Go. €2,49
Essence Ready To Go. €1,99
All prices may vary.

Sorry it’s been a while since I posted anything, I’ve been slacking I know! Apologies are in order, but my boyfriend’s been here for the past few days, busy busy busy
Anyway, today a friend of ours, Peggy came round with her daughter Ylana and I did both their nails! I totally forgot making pictures though! Such a same. But what I did do is do all my nails in different colours and designs to show Ylana all the possibilities.
A red and pink side. Ignore the sleepy face ^^
A blue and purple side!

As I’m waiting for my order to come through to do new nailart designs I’ll show you a few pictures of stuff I did a while back. It’s just the designs without a tutorial but I will be putting those up in the future!
This design I did during the holidays:
I used the Konad plate M15 for this and applied the same design twice to create a pattern. The nailpolish used is a 1 second nailpolish by Bourjois (application with the brush is great! it looks big but is very easy to use)
Using the Hawaiian Konad plate M29 and a tiny orange (though it’s got more of a red shine on the picture) nailpolish I got from a discount basket for 50 eurocent at Hema.
