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

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

Wintery sunrise nails

Winter Sunrise nails

I feel I've been doing too many gradients recently but they're so easy to do and I love the way they look. This one was inspired by a sunrise one morning as I was walking in to work. I loved the way the sun was just popping up over the horizon and the gold on … Continue reading Winter Sunrise nails

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

Dry swipe nails inspired by Wonder Forest

So when I saw these nails I just had to give them a go. Thank you … Continue reading Dry swipe nails inspired by Wonder Forest

Black and Gold

Black and Gold

A quick post today, it seems that as I'm going through all my old posts I either took around 1 million too many pictures of each manicure or 2. These were actually my nails for my work Christmas party and I loved them. Might have to give it another go. The black is "Camelot" by … Continue reading Black and Gold

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
