Spring Flowers Nail Art- Tuesday, February 26, 2013
 Spring Flowers Nail Art
As we're nearing the end of February I thought it was time for some spring nail art! I wanted something bright and happy, so I decided to do some pink flowers on top of Color Club Angel Kiss.  I really don't know what sort of flowers they are lol! I just decided to mess around with acrylic paints and this is what I ended up with.  I used some cute gold microbeads for the centre of the flower, just to give it that extra bit of glam! I hope you enjoy my random creation :) ...
Color Club Angel Kiss and Harp On It Swatches- Sunday, February 24, 2013
Color Club Angel Kiss Swatch
Tonight I just have a couple of swatches, they deserve a post to themselves without nail art because they are so beautiful! As I mentioned earlier in the week I'd purchased 3 polishes from the halo hues 2012 collection from the wonderful Sally Magpies.  I showed you cloud nine in the previous two posts.  Here we have Angel Kiss and Harp on it. Angel Kiss has to be my favourite so far! If I had to describe the colour I'd say it was a light teal, in some lights it looks blue, other...
Cloud Nine With Cute Flowers- Friday, February 22, 2013
Color Club Cloud Nine Cute Flower Stamping
Just a very quick one today! As I still had my gorgeous colour club cloud nine on, I decided to try some stamping over it.  I used cheeky plate CH16, with konad special white polish.  I then placed some really cute micro beads that I'd just purchased.  Cute & holographic :D
Color Club Cloud Nine Swatches- Thursday, February 21, 2013
Color Club Cloud Nine Swatch
I have a real beauty to show you today! This is Color Club - Cloud Nine, part of the 2012 halo hues collection.  I absolutely love holographic polishes, but there aren't many easily available in the UK.  As soon as I saw them stocked in Sally Magpies (a UK store) I couldn't resist buying some! After ordering in the afternoon I received them the next morning.  Amazing service! I bought 3 colours in the collection and decided to try Cloud Nine first.  This is a beaut...
Pastel Swirl Nail Art- Tuesday, February 19, 2013
Pastel Swirl Nail Art With Rimmel Matte Topcoat - thumbnail 7
I fancied a delicate, pastel manicure today.  For the base colour I used 2 coats of Nails Inc Oxford, which I've used before for my frosted snowflakes manicure.  I love nails inc pastel colours, they're so easy to apply. I then applied a lilac acrylic paint using a fan brush and handpainted some little swirls and a heart.  It's all finished off with 2 coats of Sally Hansen Insta Dri. I have actually used PVA glue as a base for this manicure.  I've heard it's easy to remove ...

Valentine Heart Nail Art - thumbnail 3
Happy Valentine's Day to my lovely followers! I'm not a fan of it myself, but any excuse for pretty nails ;) For today's manicure I used Rimmel London's Purple Pulse.  I love this colour! This is 3 coats, because the polish is quite thin, but I don't really mind as long as the end result is good.  I took these pictures with my new lightbox! Oh I love it sooo much! These photos were taken last night.  No more waiting for daylight :D I added one coat of Barry M's Amethyst Glitter ...
Valentines Red Rose Nail Art- Sunday, February 10, 2013
Valentine Rose Nail Art - thumbnail 1
I was feeling very creative last night and braved using acrylic paints! These were inspired by the amazing Robin Moses! I used Nails Inc Black Taxi for the base and Nails Inc St James for the accent nail.  I'll definately be playing around with acrylic paints more in the future! 
Nails Inc Shoreditch Lane Leather Effects- Wednesday, February 6, 2013
Nails Inc Shoreditch Lane Leather Effect Polish - thumbnail 4
I think I've just found my favourite polish ever!! I'd seen swatches of the leather effects polish and originally I'd wanted the black, but then once I saw Shoreditch lane I knew I'd have to try that first! As far as I know it's only available as part of a set on QVC at the moment, but I found this on a nail sale page and quickly snapped it up! Before applying the polish I decided to reshape my nails.  Those who know me will know I've always had them rounded, because I absolutely HATE nail...
Barry M Copper Polish with Heart Stamp Design- Monday, February 4, 2013
Barry M Copper with Heart Stamps - thumbnail 3
I have a beautiful polish to show you today! I went shopping at the weekend and picked up a few polishes (of course!) I applied this very quickly for a night out and I absolutely loved it.  This is one coat of Barry M gold foil with one coat of Barry M copper.  Barry M Copper is such a beautiful polish with tiny gold and copper sparkes, which is very hard to photograph! It did seem quite thin but applied perfectly over Barry M gold foil! I applied a coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri to se...
