Lace Nail Art Using Barry M Nail Art Pens- Wednesday, April 24, 2013
 Pink and black lace nail art
I've been sooo rubbish with posts! I promise I'll start blogging more again! Just had a busy couple of weeks and have been putting all my creativity into web work! Today I have a pretty random design for you but I think it looks rather cute! As I posted previously in my Barry M Nail Art Pen Review I picked up the pink, black and white pens.  I hadn't had a chance to yet try the black pen so I've used it in today's design.  It works just as well as the others and I seriously recommend y...
Barry M Nail Art Pen Review- Thursday, April 18, 2013
 Barry M Nail art pen rose nail art
I'm so sorry that I've not blogged in over a week! I've been so busy and away from home. I went to stay with my sister who is at University and to see Pink in concert.  She was seriously amazing!!  Whenever I'm away from home I end up not being able to make my nails as pretty as usual because I don't want to carry all my acrylic paint and other supplies around.  I'd seen reviews of these Barry M nail art pens and just knew I had to buy them! You can get them from Superdrug a...
Sinful Colors Pink Forever Paisley Nail Art- Tuesday, April 9, 2013
 Paisley Nail Art
Hello my lovely followers! I hope you're all enjoying spring.  I can't believe the sunshine is finally coming out in England :D Today I have a very happy, bright design! I've wanted to do a paisley design for a while but have never really dared to freehand it but I got some brilliant new paint brushes so I decided to give it a go! For the base coat I used Sinful Colors Pink Forever.  After hearing that Sinful Colors was now available in boots for only £1.99 each, I couldn't wait...
Color Club Over the Moon Swatch & Fishtail Nail Art- Thursday, April 4, 2013
 Color Club Over The Moon
It's time for more holographic goodness :D I've got the final untried polish from the Color Club Halo Hues 2013 collection to show you tonight.  This is Over The Moon, a beautiful, bright blue holographic.  I don't own blue heaven from the 2012 collection, but this is a darker blue.  I decided I only needed one blue and one pink.  These polishes are perfection to me, so easy to apply, fast drying, streak free and opaque in one coat and just as holographic with topcoat.  ...
Blossom Nail Art Tutorial- Sunday, March 31, 2013
Blossom Nail Art Tutorial
Happy Easter Sunday everyone! I hope you're all relaxing and enjoying lots of chocolate :) I know you're probably expecting some easter nail art but I decided instead to do a tutorial. It's only a picture tutorial because I don't have a camera suitable for recording at the moment. Mine has broken. But I've taken step by step photos so you can hopefully have a go at some blossom nails too! First of all, I'll show you my setup, because I know some of you have never used acrylic paints. I am in n...
Nails Inc Colville Mews Blossom Nail Art- Wednesday, March 27, 2013
 Nails Inc Colville Mews Blossom Nail Art
I hope you're all enjoying spring!! We still have lots of snow and are freezing here in England!! crazy times.  I thought I'd have a break from all the holographic loveliness, as much as I love it I don't want to bore all my readers :D This is the lovely Nails Inc Colville Mews, a light beige, nude polish.  I don't usually go for nude colours but I actually really love this polish! The formula is perfect and covers to an even, streak free, glossy finish in two coats.  I do love h...
Color Club Beyond Floral Nail Art- Friday, March 22, 2013
 Color Club Beyond Floral Nail Art
Yet another amazing polish from the Color Club Halo Hues 2013 collection to show you today.  This is Beyond, an amazingly holographic black polish.  I don't love it quite as much as Eternal Beauty but it is still a brilliant polish and it's opaque in one coat!! I used two coats because I always do and because I am always rubbish at applying dark colours!! In bright light it's amazingly holographic.  Below I've got photos of it under LED light so you can see how beautiful it is. &n...
Color Club Eternal Beauty Swatches- Tuesday, March 19, 2013
 Color Club Eternal Beauty Swatches
Brace yourselves for the most beautiful polish to have ever been created (in my opinion)!! This is Eternal Beauty and it most definitely lives up to its name! I've shown you 4 of the colour club halo hue polishes previously and this is by far my favourite so far.  Application is flawless and if you were in a rush you could get away with one coat, but I always wear at least two. I absolutely love purple and this polish even looks beautiful when it isn't showing its amazing holographic ...
St Patrick's Day Nail Art and Color Club Kismet Swatches- Sunday, March 17, 2013
 Color Club Kismet St Patricks Mani
Happy St Patrick's Day everyone! I wasn't really that keen on doing a St Patrick's day manicure because I didn't feel like wearing green and I wanted to try my new 2013 halo hues.  But seeing as I am half Irish by blood I thought I'd compromise and I did both :D I used the beautiful Kismet as a base.  I'd describe it as a golden holographic polish with a hint of green to it.  Application is amazing, I didn't have to do any clean up.  I used two coats but it covered pretty we...
Goodbye Google Reader and Friend Connect- Friday, March 15, 2013
So as I'm sure many of you have heard, google reader will be no more soon.  I absolutely loved google reader, so I'm not very happy.  I also loved the Google friend connect widget, but as that's linked to reader I've now removed it from my blog.  I can only imagine what those with thousands of followers are feeling!! Anyway I've updated the options for following me in the sidebar to the left. If you followed me via friend connect you can easily import all your reader blogs into b...
Cute Owl Nail Art- Wednesday, March 13, 2013
 Cute Owl Nail Art
I've got a cute little manicure today, inspired by a card I'd seen which had some cute pink owls on the front.  I used two coats of Nails Inc Warick Avenue (which I also used for my swan manicure so you can find swatches there).  I then hand painted the owl, flowers and hearts with acrylic paints.  I added some microbeads onto the owl as she's supposed to have a little flower on her head :) I'm really enjoying hand painting things.  I need some better paint brushes though fo...
Holographic Heart Manicure- Sunday, March 10, 2013
 Holographic Heart Tape Manicure
Just a simple mani to show you tonight.  I've seen so many beautiful tape manicures but I've never tried it before so I decided to just give it a go with something simple.  I used my gorgeous colour club halo hues, angel kiss and cloud nine.  I then applied a rhinestone to my ring finger and microbeads in the shape of hearts to the others.  The tape worked pretty well for my first attempt.  It was putting the tiny microbeads on that was fiddly! I don't think I'll ever g...
