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.

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
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 ...
Rimmel London Space Dust Review and Nail Art- Saturday, January 11, 2014
Rimmel Space Dust Moon Walking
Hello lovelies! I hope you're all having a nice weekend. I've been stuck indoors with a banging headache but I still wanted to make sure I posted something :) Just before Christmas I came across some Rimmel London Space Dust polishes in Boots. I'd not yet tried any of this type of textured glitter polish so I thought I'd pick up 3 as they were 3 for 2. Two of these were swatched a while ago, but today I swatched my favourite of the 3, moon walking and did some free hand one stroke flowers. Moo...

I've got a beauty to show you tonight! I wasn't planning on blogging but I just had to show you how amazing this polish is! This is piCture pOlish Kryptonite, a polish that I was sent for blog fest 2013. I'd only ever used it for the blog fest design, but this is one of those polishes you have to see on its own. I'm not even usually a green fan, but just look at the sparkles! The formula was absolute perfection, no clean up needed at all. I then stamped over it using Color Club Kismet and Dashic...
