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 ...

Picture Polish Illusionist
Hello lovelies! A rather unusual late night post from me but I just couldn't wait to post this! I have the most beautiful polish to show you! the gorgeous picture polish illusionist! Illusionist is a limited edition shade that was released at the end of February 2014 with 4 other shades. I loved all of them and I quickly snapped 3 of them up in the Sally Magpies sale a couple of weeks ago. For the base I decided to use Ciate Power Dressing; a dark blue crelly. These shades are very sheer and ar...

A England Princess Tears
It's the weekend and time for some more one stroke flowers and a beautiful polish :) A England is a UK indie brand that I'd actually never ordered from before even though it's probably the most well known. I was informed by some of my lovely nail friends that as the brand was turning 3, there was a sale on, so it was the perfect opportunity for me to finally get my hands on some! Described as; "Hardwearing nail varnish collection with distinctive gloss inspired by the enchanting spirit of Engla...

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...

Hello lovelies! You've probably forgotten who I am by now, it's been so long since my last post! Sorry about that, I had a week of bare nails as I was really busy and I decided to just give them some oil treatment. 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...

Hello lovelies! I hope you're all having a lovely weekend! I decided I wanted to do some more one stroke nail art today. I've only attempted this a few times and I just love the effect it gives, so pretty and girly! Models own had a 50% off sale the other week to celebrate reaching 250,000 followers on Facebook. I couldn't resist ordering some of their polishes, two of which were part of their new HyperGel range. Now I have to admit I do not really understand the gel effect polishes all these b...

Hello my lovelies! Long-time no see! I really hope you're all doing well and I'm really sorry for my absence, I've had a hectic few weeks.

I received a lovely email from Jacava London the other day about my blog and it really put a smile on my face. They've asked me to review one of their luxury polishes and I chose the beautiful M...
Color Club Cloud Nine One Stroke Nail Art- Wednesday, June 12, 2013
 Color Club Cloud Nine One Stroke Flower Nail Art
I've finally attempted one stroke nail art :D I've always loved the look of one stroke nail art but was a bit too scared to try it. Last night I just decided I was going to give it a go! I'd had the beautiful Color Club Cloud Nine on since Saturday (I know, shocking!) so I thought some pink flowers would look great over it. Now these are far from perfect, but please take into account it's my first attempt, hopefully I'll get better at it! I used acrylic paint for the nail art and a nice thick c...
