Tropical Gradient Nail Art Using Models Own Polish For Tans- Sunday, May 10, 2015
Models Own Polish For Tans Tropical Gradient with MoYou London Stamping
Another bright and happy design for you today using 4 Models Own shades from their Polish for Tans collection. This collection was first released last year and consisted of 5 shades, 4 of which I'm using today. They've recently added another 5 shades to the collection too. The name 'Polish for Tans' actually caused a bit of upset when it was released. Why should a polish only be for tanned skin? I am very pale and I love wearing neons! I personally didn't take offence to the name and I purchased...
DIY Sheer Tint Nail Art- Sunday, March 29, 2015
Sheer tint nail art
I've got a bright and cheerful manicure today on this miserable grey and rainy Sunday here in England! I've really wanted to get back into nail art so I had lots of arty goodies arrive this week. One thing I'd wanted to try for ages was to make some sheer tints, so I ordered some bottles of clear polish and today I finally got around to making some. These are SO simple to make! You just pick a nail polish and drop a few drops into the clear polish. You then roll it about in your hands to mix it...
Essence The Pastels 01 - So Lucky Review and Nail Art- Tuesday, March 10, 2015
Essence So Lucky
Hello lovelies! I'm back with some nail art and a review for you :) I apologise for having such a long break! I was contacted a couple of weeks ago by Essence about some new products of theirs and decided it was time to get back into my blogging. I'd heard about Essence quite a while ago now but they weren't easily available in the UK so hadn't had the chance to try them. They're now available in Wilkinsons stores throughout the UK and are super cheap! This is the first polish I've tried of th...
Purple Rose Nail Art- Sunday, January 11, 2015
Purple rose free hand nail art
Woo! First post of 2015. I know I'm a bit late but better late than never :) I really want to get back into freehand nail art this year (but will still be continuing with stamping too of course), so I thought I'd ease myself back into it with some roses. I used Nails Inc black taxi as the base colour. This is my go to black polish because it's so shiny and perfect. I then used Oumaxi acrylic paints to paint on the flowers and petals using a selection of brushes. With roses I basically just splo...

Ready for some beautiful bling? Today I've got the stunning Femme Fatale Grove of Shards with a stamping design from MoYou Nails Plate 218.

MoYou Nails 220 stamping over Sinful Colors Easy Going
Hello strangers! I've got lots of photos to show you today using designs from the gorgeous MoYou Nails 220 stamping plate. I didn't want to put up a post until I'd used most of the designs so it's taken me a while to get this post up. Sinful Colors Easy Going I've had this polish for a while but this is the first time I've used it. It's a gorgeous cream, slightly pink and for the price it's brilliant. Super glossy and takes 3 thin coats. I then stamped over it using color club eternal beauty a...

Picture Polish Illusionist with One Stroke Flowers- Thursday, June 5, 2014
Picture Polish Illusionist
Hello lovelies! A rather unusual late night post from me but I just couldn't wait to post this! I have the most beautiful polish to show you! the gorgeous picture polish illusionist! Illusionist is a limited edition shade that was released at the end of February 2014 with 4 other shades. I loved all of them and I quickly snapped 3 of them up in the Sally Magpies sale a couple of weeks ago. For the base I decided to use Ciate Power Dressing; a dark blue crelly. These shades are very sheer and ar...

Picture Polish Honey Dew and Jasmine with MoYou Nails stamping
Hello lovelies! Second post of the weekend :D A couple of weeks ago Sally Magpies had an insane sale on everything so I just couldn't miss out on buying a load of picture polish! I owned a few of these previously and I've been dying to get my hands on some more but they are usually quite expensive (at least £10 a bottle) so I can't buy them often. Today I have two to show you; the beautiful Honey Dew and Jasmine. I really cannot find one fault with these polishes, the formula is just per...
Freckles Polish Swatches and Review- Saturday, May 31, 2014
Freckles Polish Wanton Sex Goddess
Hello strangers! If you follow me on Facebook you'll know I went on holiday for my birthday so that's why I've not been around much. The lead up to a holiday is always busy too so it's been a long break. But I'm back with some beautiful polishes AND a new nail shape!! I did love my previous shape however I found the corners broke off so easily and when I went away I broke so many corners off my nails that I decided it was the perfect opportunity to try almond. I've been admiring the lovely AJ's ...
