A England – Tudoresque collection

The new Tudoresque collection from A England. As usual Adina has done a fabulous collection. This one surprised me as it's 8 beautiful new shades. In almost 3 years now as a stockist I haven't seen such a large release all in one go although quite a lot of shades have been discontinued recently so … Continue reading A England – Tudoresque collection

In Robe and Stripes

Happy New Year to everyone! Let's kick this off with the first nail post of the year. This is the design I went for over New Year's Eve although I didn't get a chance to do clean up properly as I was getting shoved out the door by my boyfriend. I wouldn't mind but we … Continue reading In Robe and Stripes

I think the gold polish may be A England's "Princess Sabra". No clue on the other polishes! My plan was to make a fiery looking gradient and I was quite pleased with this, particularly the way the glittery accent nail caught the light

Random nail art

Morning everyone, I've been having a bit of a tidy up in my pictures folder and found some random nail art that I've never posted due to only having one (not always great) picture of it so I thought why not have them all in one post? I probably won't remember what polishes were used … Continue reading Random nail art

Perfect Pinks – an A England comparison

Since I did one for all the purples and because it was requested I have done a quick comparison of 3 of the pinks available at the moment from A England.

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

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
