Nail art on my left hand, I spy a dent on the index finger which is annoying but never mind. I quite like my tree on my little finger and I think the middle finger was supposed to be the classic zombie-arm-out-of-the-ground but just failed

Graveyard nails

An early Halloween post! I know i've been very... useless with my nail posts recently so I can only apologise for that. Sorry guys! It's partly been due to not being able to sit at my desk due to my DVT and partly been a lack of inspiration really. However I still have plenty of … Continue reading Graveyard nails

Lemon and Blueberry nails

Lemon and Blueberry nails

Just a nice quick one this morning. I did these nails ages ago and they were inspired by a lemon and blueberry drizzle cake I made. Sometimes simple is best and if it also reminds you of cake what's not to love?! Polishes used were "Stop the Clock" from Barry M's Speedy Dry collection and … Continue reading Lemon and Blueberry nails

I love this picture, it really shows the subtle sparkle in "Pearl"

Dry swipe nails inspired by Wonder Forest

I occasionally spot a good article over on Bloglovin' by Wonder Forest; it's not a blog I have to read everything from but she does have some lovely stuff on there from time to time and is very arty-crafty. So when I saw these nails I just had to give them a go. Thank you … Continue reading Dry swipe nails inspired by Wonder Forest

Refreshing summer nails

Lemon and Lime cocktail nails

I hate the heat. I'm pale skinned, grew up in Yorkshire and burn far too easily. Heat and me are not friends. So since we've been having a heatwave in the UK this week I haven't exactly been loving it nor has my boyfriend. Feeling warm and sticky the whole time is not my idea … Continue reading Lemon and Lime cocktail nails

Purple Reign – an A England comparison

I'm pretty sure Adina has an unhealthy obsession with purples (much like my obsession with green!) so I have decided to do a comparison of the purple polishes we have so far in the A England collections. First up we have the holographic purples. These are all actually quite drastically different really although the holographic … Continue reading Purple Reign – an A England comparison

Palm Tree nails

Summertime palm tree nails

I hate looking back at old nail art, it always looks so terrible! I did this one last summer and never got round to posting it so figured we could go for a bit of a holiday vibe today. It was very simple to do so I'm sure you guys can recreate it far better … Continue reading Summertime palm tree nails

Mint Choc nails

Mint Choc Nails

Just a quick one tonight guys as I'm nursing an injured degu (silly Scrat, I will post about it at some point) so not really feeling nail-motivated at the moment. Plus I'm waiting for some actual sunlight to appear one evening so I can get some final shots of the Russian Soul collection for my … Continue reading Mint Choc Nails

Russian Soul swatches on Instagram

It's very late, I have to be up at 6am and I am away until mid-afternoon on Sunday so no time to do a proper blog post or get the polishes up on the shop. However there are swatches of the new Russian Soul collection from A England over on my Instagram so swoop on … Continue reading Russian Soul swatches on Instagram

Nail Care – Hints and Tips

I've been waiting the last week in anticipation of the new Russian Soul collection to turn up for the shop and each day it hasn't arrived I've been mortified. Not just because I'm impatient to try out the 5 new amazing colours (and A England colours are always amazing, let's face it), not just because … Continue reading Nail Care – Hints and Tips
