We also finally finished the cage extension. The bottom two levels were actually just a storage part before so now they have around 60% extra space to explore whilst in the cage and they love it. So much they hardly come out when we let them anymore!

Christmas degus

This year we're not bothering to decorate the flat for Christmas. The main reason is that we usually have the tree up in the gaming room as this is where we spend all our time and of course you want to have the tree where you'll enjoy it. However this is our first year with … Continue reading Christmas degus

Nude Christmas! OPI "Sprung" and Barry M "Vanilla"

Nude Christmas

Ooo-er matron! Sounds a bit racy doesn't it?! Ok so it's not quite December but I came across this one that I hadn't posted last year and I loved the nails so will probably redo them this year. Only one picture I'm afraid. The bronze polish is "Sprung" from OPI and the nude is "Vanilla" … Continue reading Nude Christmas

Holly Christmas nails using the polishes from November's Nailbox

November Nailbox

Sorry, I'm so sorry! I'm sitting here with my Christmas tree twinkling, tinsel round the monitor and adorning my desk and feeling very guilty for a lack of blog updates. I had grand ideas of designs and inspiration, last minute gift ideas for nail lovers... well that all went out the window! So I'm finally … Continue reading November Nailbox

Sweat Gym Nails

So I got a little excited over joining a new gym. Mainly because their colour is lime green and I love lime green. So for their opening I decided to do some nails for them. The gym is called "Sweat!" and they have sweat drops posted around the place so I did sweaty nails! The … Continue reading Sweat Gym Nails

Snowy Space

             A beautiful snowy scene for a twist on the classic French Manicure. As stated elsewhere, I love winter and I love snow. I'm not usually one for negative space manicures but this one just lent itself perfectly to it, particularly as my nails were in such good condition at the time thanks to … Continue reading Snowy Space

A England Christmas

                Happy Christmas everyone! The perfect Christmas colours from A England combined with a Christmas tree. I did this little Christmas tree (undecorated) last year and wanted to recreate it now I have more tools. I used A England "Gloriana" and "Fotheringhay Castle" as the base colours, some studs and gems I had lying around … Continue reading A England Christmas

Fiery Snowflakes

             Just a quick post for this one, inspired by what I am hoping my Christmas will be this year - sitting in front of a lovely log fire watching snowflakes falling. Polishes used are A England "Gloriana" and "Virgin Queen" for the gradient and the rather sloppy snowflakes were done using a Barry M … Continue reading Fiery Snowflakes

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!

Christmas Rockstar

             A Christmas Rockstar will be born. I love the simplicity of this look combined with the ridiculously shiny glitter. The Barry M Glitterati polish "Rock Star" is available from http://www.barrym.com, the two Barry M Glitters "Starlight" and "Moonlight" are Christmas 2014 exclusives to Boots, the OPI Glitter Peel Off base can be bought from … Continue reading Christmas Rockstar

Firework Glitter

  I wanted something for Bonfire night that looked like the night sky with fireworks going off. It didn't really work out so I took it straight off but thought I'd show you anyway. Base colour is A England "Queen of Scots" (available from shop.polishedpevil.com) and the glitters are the two Superdrug Christmas exclusives from … Continue reading Firework Glitter
