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

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

Nail art on my left hand, I spy a dent on the index finger which is annoying but never mind. I quite like my tree on my little finger and I think the middle finger was supposed to be the classic zombie-arm-out-of-the-ground but just failed

Graveyard nails

An early Halloween post! I know i've been very... useless with my nail posts recently so I can only apologise for that. Sorry guys! It's partly been due to not being able to sit at my desk due to my DVT and partly been a lack of inspiration really. However I still have plenty of … Continue reading Graveyard nails

Refreshing summer nails

Lemon and Lime cocktail nails

I hate the heat. I'm pale skinned, grew up in Yorkshire and burn far too easily. Heat and me are not friends. So since we've been having a heatwave in the UK this week I haven't exactly been loving it nor has my boyfriend. Feeling warm and sticky the whole time is not my idea … Continue reading Lemon and Lime cocktail nails

There's holographicness! Sort of...

Bestie Twin Nails Gradient

I've featured some nails by @scallyann before when she did a fantastic manicure using A England polishes. This time we did the whole bestie twin nails thing; she sent me a WhatsApp with the below inspiring pictures and we just had to do this. So after a bit of a discussion on what colours to … Continue reading Bestie Twin Nails Gradient

31 Day Challenge Prompts

31 Day Challenge #31dc2015 – Week 2

Well week 2 is over and it's definitely a challenge! I'm loving this though as it's really inspiring me both with colour combinations and designs that I've done well with and really want to recreate and also utter nail fails which I think would work really well if I just didn't feel so pressured to … Continue reading 31 Day Challenge #31dc2015 – Week 2

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
