Mint Nails for Talia - Char's Tribute
A very different and very special post tonight! As many of you have probably heard, the gorgeous and inspirational 13 year old Talia Joy Castellano lost her 6 year battle with cancer. She touched the hearts of many, and even those who didn't know her when she was alive are showing their support. As Talia posted a picture wearing mint nail polish as her final instagram picture, the nail blogging community has decided to wear mint manicures in tribute to her, her family and friends. I'm a member ...

 Born Pretty Store Metal Rhinestone Nail Art
Hey lovelies! As I mentioned in my previous post, Born Pretty Store kindly sent me two of their gorgeous metal rhinestone nail charm designs to review. I showed you the white colour previously and today I'm going to show you a whole new design using the coralpinky coloured version. I was so impressed with these charms, my last manicure they managed to stay on for two days! In fact they stayed on so well that I was worried I wouldn't be able to remove them!! Now my last design was quite busy wit...

SpaRitual Dreamsicle Review and Nail Art- Monday, July 8, 2013
 SpaRitual Dreamsicle
Following on from my SpaRitual Delight review I have the beautiful SpaRitual Dreamsicle to show you today! This is a beautiful neon pink creme polish and it really is neon, it looks absolutely amazing in the sunshine! For the plain swatches I found that I needed 3 coats to get it completely opaque, you could get away with two as it applies really evenly but I found my free edge was slightly visible after two. I really like the consistency of the SpaRitual polishes, not too thick or thin! Again, ...

SpaRitual Delight Review and Nail Art- Wednesday, July 3, 2013
 Sparitual Delight
Today I have a polish brand to show you that is new to me. I was asked to review two polishes from SpaRitual, a vegan luxary spa lifestyle brand. I'm always excited to try new brands so of course I accepted! I really had no idea that vegan polish existed, but as I'm not vegan I haven't really ever thought about it! The bottles look gorgeous and I've been told that they were designed by Ferrari! I was sent two mini (5ml) polishes. I have to say, I'm not a fan of mini bottles, I always find them m...

Emily de Molly Serenity Swatches and Review- Friday, June 28, 2013
 Emily de Molly Serenity
Another beautiful Emily de Molly polish to show you today!! I'm am sooo happy I have got to own some of these, they're so beautiful and unique! Only problem is that now I want MORE! This is the gorgeous Serenity. I didn't hear many people talking about buying this one when Sally Magpies started stocking it, but when I was looking at her polishes this one really stood out to me! I think it's because I really love teal colours in a polish and then I saw all the gold and the purple and I just knew ...
KKCenterhk 3d Heart Decoration Review & Nail Art- Thursday, June 27, 2013
 KKCenterHK Rose Heart 3d Decoration
Some nail art for you as promised :) Now I know it's flowers again, but I wanted to do a review of this 3d heart with three flower nail decoration that I was sent by Annoyingly I didn't have a pink polish the right shade, but I thought by having it as an accent nail I could get away with using a different shade of pink on the other nails. I used Sinful Colors Pink Forever as a base and Sinful Colors Snow Me White on my accent finger. I then used acrylic paint to paint on the dots...
Emily de Molly Cosmic Forces Swatches and Review- Wednesday, June 26, 2013
 Emily de Molly Cosmic Forces
Ok so I know I promised some nail art but yesterday I had two Emily de Molly's arrive and I was so excited I just had to try one on and it's far too beautiful to do anything to! This is Cosmic Forces and WOW it's nail art on its own! I've been eyeing up her polishes for a while now, but as they're made in Australia they are hard to get hold of here. But as soon as Sally Magpies mentioned she was going to stock them, I just knew I had to get some!! I ended up with 2, because they aren't cheap at ...
