A England Princess Tears With One Stroke Flowers- Saturday, April 12, 2014
A England Princess Tears
It's the weekend and time for some more one stroke flowers and a beautiful polish :) A England is a UK indie brand that I'd actually never ordered from before even though it's probably the most well known. I was informed by some of my lovely nail friends that as the brand was turning 3, there was a sale on, so it was the perfect opportunity for me to finally get my hands on some! Described as; "Hardwearing nail varnish collection with distinctive gloss inspired by the enchanting spirit of Engla...

Dance Legend Termo Shine 182 with MoYou Nails stamping
Hello lovelies! It's the weekend again, yay! Some time to do my nails and catch up on everyone else's posts too! I've gone a bit photo mad for this post, I hope you don't mind :) A while back I ordered some Dance Legend polishes from Rainbow Connection. I've shown you one of their multichromes, the absolutely stunning Sulley and now I've got a thermal to show you. I thought I'd gone off thermals, I found that because I'm cold most of the time they hardly change colour on me but Dance Legend Te...
Happy Hands Fairy Tale With One Stroke Nail Art- Saturday, March 29, 2014
Happy Hands Fairy Tale
Hey :) hope everyone is having a great weekend! We finally have some nice weather here in the UK, it actually feels like spring so I thought I'd pull out a pretty polish I've not yet featured on my blog. This is the beautiful Happy Hands Fairy Tale and I think it really does suit its name! This was a polish I saw just one little swatch of on instagram and just knew I had to get it! It was an exclusive to Mei Mei's Signatures but unfortunately it's no longer available. It's a beautiful pinkybeige...

Models Own Fruit Pastel Gradient
Hello!! Oh I've been so rubbish lately with blogging. I'm really sorry, I am struggling to post as much as I used to as I'm pretty busy with work and visiting people at weekends! I've made sure to keep this weekend free though to relax :) I really hope you're all well! So today I have a very delicate manicure perfect for spring! I purchased a few Models Own polishes when they had their 50% off sale so I thought I'd use 3 from the fruit pastel collection for this manicure today. This is not a ne...

Taras Talons Secret Garden
Hello lovelies! You've probably forgotten who I am by now, it's been so long since my last post! Sorry about that, I had a week of bare nails as I was really busy and I decided to just give them some oil treatment. I'm now back with a glittery, floral mani to show you :) I love supporting UK indie brands and have featured many of them on my blog. Today I have another to show you, from The Tara Emporium. I've been meaning to try one of Tara's polishes for a while so I finally got around to order...
Dance Legend Sulley and MoYou Nails Stamping Polish Review and Swatches- Saturday, February 15, 2014
Dance Legend Sulley With MoYou Nails Stamp and Stamping Polish
Hello lovelies! I hope you're having a great weekend. I've not had much luck with my nails this week! I had a really low break on my thumb nail a few weeks ago and the patch came off so it's extremely short. I then filed down all my nails, taking off about half the free edge and a day later I injured my middle nail opening a car door. You can see the damage here if you aren't squeamish. It was very painful and still half attached to my skin so I've patched it up for now. So my nails will be much...
F.U.N Lacquer Love 2014 Thermal Collection Swatches- Sunday, February 9, 2014
Fun Lacquer Love 2014
Hello lovelies! I have some swatches to show you today that I've been meaning to post for a while! I'd wanted some thermal polishes for a while and I fell in love with the Love 2014 collection by F.U.N Lacquer as soon as I saw people posting swatches. Unfortunately I was too slow to pick them up from Rainbow Connection when they first went into stock so I ordered directly from her online store based in Singapore. It cost just over £31 for the whole collection including shipping and it a...

Models Own Hypergel with one stroke nail art
Hello lovelies! I hope you're all having a lovely weekend! I decided I wanted to do some more one stroke nail art today. I've only attempted this a few times and I just love the effect it gives, so pretty and girly! Models own had a 50% off sale the other week to celebrate reaching 250,000 followers on Facebook. I couldn't resist ordering some of their polishes, two of which were part of their new HyperGel range. Now I have to admit I do not really understand the gel effect polishes all these b...

Models Own Midori Stamping Decal Nail Art
Two posts in a weekend? :O This is only a very short post but I wanted to show you my first attempt at stamping decals. I've been meaning to try this for a while as I've seen it in a nail stamping group but I just hadn't got around to it. However, after seeing the lovely Lucy's designs from Lucy's stash I just knew I had to give it a go. Lucy has 3 tutorials on this, I went for the first method where you paint topcoat onto a plastic sheet, wait for it to dry, stamp and then paint. I decided I w...

Laquerdaisical Where The Glitter Flamingoes Swatches and Nail Art- Sunday, January 26, 2014
Laquerdaisical Where the  glitter flamingoes
Hello lovelies! I have a new UK indie brand to show you today! Laquerdaisical is a UK indie brand run by Alexia and she kindly asked me if I'd like to review one of her polishes. I chose where the glitter flamingoes, which is a gorgeous sparkly, pink jelly polish. I decided to layer this over picture polish flirt as it would take a few coats to reach full opacity. For my swatches I've used two thin coats and a topcoat. The formula is very good, it applies easily and the glitters distribute easil...

Models Own Midori Set
I've got some bright nail art to show you today for my Models Own limited edition Midori set review. Midori is a fruity liquer made from premium melons, prized for their juiciness and fresh and vibrant taste. The word Midori means 'green' in Japanese, so the they have teamed up with Models Own to create 3 melon scented green shades. I have to admit, I don't wear greens often but I was excited to try these out! My Midori is a very bright green jelly. As it's a jelly polish, it will not be fully ...
