So here we go, my first ever attempt at the 31 day challenge. A tough schedule, a tough list of prompts and it hasn't been helped by the fact I've apparently lost all skill in hand poses, photography and lighting (what little I had anyway). So please do excuse the pictures. I may eventually do … Continue reading 31 Day Challenge #31dc2015 – Week 1
This is quite an old manicure now, I really need to stay more up to date with my nail art. I just can't help it though, I get so carried away with doing new designs and tweaking the pictures that I lose momentum for the actual posting. Cut a girl some slack!

She did a similar one to this ages ago but it didn't last long enough to get pictures so she has remastered it using A England polishes (all available on the shop) and personally I think … Continue reading Scallyann Sunday!
I had a very glittery phase about a month ago. This was probably the peak of it. I wanted all the glitter so I put all the glitter on. It was very distracting and made me very happy at work! I was also quite impressed with the swirls I did and particularly as I think … Continue reading Swirly Glitter

An icy gradient with mistakes and proof that glitter hides all! I love the winter, cold and snow and ice so this manicure was inspired by the weather cooling down. Unfortunately I kept messing up and denting it so I decided what the heck, let's show that everyone messes up their nails (more often … Continue reading Icy Gradient – with mistakes!
