Floral One Stroke Nail Art Featuring Freckles Polish- Sunday, July 12, 2015
One stroke floral nail art
Second post of the weekend, yay! Today I felt the urge to sit down with my paints and do some one stroke; my favourite nail art technique. It's been a while since I've had the time to do something so intricate so I really enjoyed doing this. I've painted both hands, although the right hand definitely isn't as good :P For the base I used a beautiful polish called Get off my bum...bag! by the UK indie brand Freckles Polish. This is another one of my favourite brands and I actually met the lovely ...
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 ...
Happy Hands Fairy Tale With One Stroke Nail Art- Saturday, March 29, 2014
Happy Hands Fairy Tale
Hey :) hope everyone is having a great weekend! We finally have some nice weather here in the UK, it actually feels like spring so I thought I'd pull out a pretty polish I've not yet featured on my blog. This is the beautiful Happy Hands Fairy Tale and I think it really does suit its name! This was a polish I saw just one little swatch of on instagram and just knew I had to get it! It was an exclusive to Mei Mei's Signatures but unfortunately it's no longer available. It's a beautiful pinkybeige...

Taras Talons Secret Garden
Hello lovelies! You've probably forgotten who I am by now, it's been so long since my last post!

I'm now back with a glittery, floral mani to show you :) I love supporting UK indie brands and have featured many of them on my blog. Today I have another to show you, from The Tara Emporium. I've been meaning to try one of Tara's polishes for a while so I finally got around to order...
F.U.N Lacquer Love 2014 Thermal Collection Swatches- Sunday, February 9, 2014
Fun Lacquer Love 2014
Hello lovelies! I have some swatches to show you today that I've been meaning to post for a while! I'd wanted some thermal polishes for a while and I fell in love with the Love 2014 collection by F.U.N Lacquer as soon as I saw people posting swatches. Unfortunately I was too slow to pick them up from Rainbow Connection when they first went into stock so I ordered directly from her online store based in Singapore. It cost just over £31 for the whole collection including shipping and it a...

Laquerdaisical Where The Glitter Flamingoes Swatches and Nail Art- Sunday, January 26, 2014
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...

PMP Umbrella Swatch
I have a huge post full of PMP photo spam for you tonight! I've been a bit behind with sorting out my photos and adding them to my blog so I decided I'd group 4 PMP polishes into tonights post for you! Umbrella This is from the most recent November collection released last week. I have to admit, it isn't the sort of polish I'd usually go for because of all the bar glitter but I know lots of people love this sort of glitter and it really does look great on! It's full of silver hex glitters with...

Chubby Owl Midnight Pixie
Happy Halloween everyone! I am not at all bothered about Halloween but I can't resist the chance to do a bit of nail art!

I introduced this brand to my blog in my previous post, showing off the beautiful EssiePops, this one is completely different but I love it just as much. Midnight Pixie is unlike any oth...
