31 Day Challenge Prompts

31 Day Challenge #31dc2015 – Week 1

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

I love the way the flash caught the stud on this one.

A England Love Hearts

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! I did this … Continue reading A England Love Hearts

This is how much I love GBBO - I did nails especially for it in 2015. There was even a promotion on the A England polishes I used in my shop.

Great British Bake Off Cupcake nails and bundle offer

We all love the Great British Bake Off and I'm getting super excited for it to start in 2 days. So what could be more perfect than having cupcakes on my nails whilst watching it? Well eating cupcakes whilst watching it I guess but that means baking and I can't be bothered right now 😉 … Continue reading Great British Bake Off Cupcake nails and bundle offer

Meet Mr Sparkles the Unicorn!

Mr Sparkles the Unicorn

Meet Mr Sparkles the Unicorn! I was in an odd mood when I had these on my nails and named him then kept pestering my boyfriend, telling him to speak to Mr Sparkles and all sorts of random stuff. What can I say? 🙂 I blame how incredibly pretty Captive Goddess is. All polishes used … Continue reading Mr Sparkles the Unicorn

Watery Gradient with crackle

Watery Gradient

Just a quick post today as I'm messing about with the blog layout and the shop a bit plus planning posts (I have so many reviews/tutorials/nail arts waiting it's ridiculous). I'm also super excited as I have a new desk coming on Saturday for my PC, however it's a larger one than I currently have … Continue reading Watery Gradient

Solo shot of the nails. The more foil-like silver is Excalibur Renaissance, the other is Encore Margot; you can't see it in these pictures but it's a holographic polish

Scallyann Sunday!

We have a special post today, featuring a lovely manicure by my friend/colleague/fellow nail nut the talented @Scallyann (Instagram). 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!

Swirly Glitter

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

Icy Gradient – with mistakes!

           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!
