Spring ladybirds!

Spring Ladybirds

I loved my ladybirds when I did them for the 31 day challenge so I had to recreate them at some point. These were a fresher, more springlike feel with the french dotticure on the rest of the nails and I'm still very happy with how the ladybird turned out. Mayfair Market is a gorgeous … Continue reading Spring Ladybirds

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. 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

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

Mint Choc nails

Mint Choc Nails

Just a quick one tonight guys as I'm nursing an injured degu (silly Scrat, I will post about it at some point) so not really feeling nail-motivated at the moment. Plus I'm waiting for some actual sunlight to appear one evening so I can get some final shots of the Russian Soul collection for my … Continue reading Mint Choc 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

First attempt at stamping

First attempt at stamping

Just a quick stop post today, the weekend has completely gotten away from me. The above was my first ever attempt at stamping (about a year ago!). I think the green is "Saint George" from A England and I want to say the base was one of the Speedy Dry range from Barry M.

Freehand neon stripes to brighten up any day!

Neon Stripes

Morning everyone! It's a gorgeous blue sky, sunny day here, cold but clear so what better way to brighten up everyones day than with some neons? This is yet another of my "I wore this ages ago and didn't post it yet" manicures so as usual apologies! The China Glaze white is a great polish … Continue reading Neon Stripes

Looking good! It can be hard to get the heart looking like a heart though.

Valentine Dot Hearts

I did the green version of these absolutely ages ago and loved it but never got round to posting it. So here we are, just in time for Valentine's day and hopefully to give you some inspiration. I've also done a pink version further down the post that I was actually wearing just a few … Continue reading Valentine Dot Hearts
