The gorgeous holographic vision of "Beggar Maid" and "In Robe and Crown" from A England

Beggar Maid In Robe and Crown

Autumn is all about golds, oranges, reds and browns for me. The beautiful colours as the leaves turn before dropping from the branches. I'm not feeling overly inspired to do my nails recently but looking back over some that I haven't posted I came across this and it just feels simple but effective. I might … Continue reading Beggar Maid In Robe and Crown

Finally I used a Models Own nail art pen to draw the black outlines on for the stained glass window. This helped make the rose look a bit more rose like

Beauty and the Beast

I've been excited but also anxious about the live action version of Beauty and the Beast. I went to see it today and had to have nails to match it. Anyone who loves the original Disney carton definitely needs to go and see this film, it was amazing. So true to it and the additions … Continue reading Beauty and the Beast

Final shot, love this picture too. Such a perfect rose and these were my two best nails as well

Valentines nails 2017

I don't actually celebrate Valentines but oh well, sometimes you just have to go with the flow and do the nails anyway.

I've become a huge fan of a gradient recently and I still love combining it with a clean stripe too so I did a full A England based one a little while ago.

The colours are gorgeous I think and I really loved this manicure. I applied Excalibur Renaissance first over a base coat then … Continue reading Green A England Gradient

I'm currently wearing this lovely little manicure that is halfway between a dotticure and a blobbicure. Not intentionally but because I am so used to applying thin coats of polish that I didn't do a thick enough … Continue reading Nude blobbicure

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

Health and fitness post #7 01/01/2017

Happy New Year everyone! This month hasn't been great so let's just get on with the fail shall we? Here's to hoping 2017 goes better if I follow my resolution.
