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.

Green A England Gradient

Ok so my clean up here wasn't great. I think I got my liquid latex on the nail a bit and then just failed with sponging on the gradient too but never mind. 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 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

I love this picture, it really shows the subtle sparkle in "Pearl"

Dry swipe nails inspired by Wonder Forest

I occasionally spot a good article over on Bloglovin' by Wonder Forest; it's not a blog I have to read everything from but she does have some lovely stuff on there from time to time and is very arty-crafty.

Feeling warm and sticky the whole time is not my idea … Continue reading Lemon and Lime cocktail nails

Polishes used: Barry M "Pole Position" and "Need for Speed" and A England "Excalibur Renaissance"

Silver, purple and green flowers

Hello everyone! I'm still catching up on some of my older manicures and this is one that I absolutely love and I feel is a really spring-like look. It also uses my three favourite colours, purple, silver and green so I'm bound to revisit this in some form. What do you guys think? I love … Continue reading Silver, purple and green flowers

December's Nailbox contents

December Nailbox

My final review (for a while at least) of subscription boxes. I've had 6 Nailboxes and 5 Meeboxes now and as much as I love them I have enough polishes that I'm mainly getting dupes so sadly I've cancelled them. The tools this month were some Elegant Touch Professional Slanted Tweezers (I have tons of … Continue reading December Nailbox

Octobers Nailbox Contents - possibly the best colours yet

October Nailbox

It's that time already for another months Nailbox and this months theme was Autumn. I was really looking forward to this box when they announced that and I wasn't disappointed. Well I was mildly but we'll get on to that and it certainly wasn't Nailbox's fault! First up with the tools we have some nail … Continue reading October Nailbox
