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.

Russian Incense featuring my two favourite polishes and some watermarbling

Russian Incense nails

Today's nail art is a little bit summer and a little bit autumn. It is using my two favourite A England nail polishes, "Incense Burner" and "Katyusha". You can't really see it in any of these pictures but "Incense Burner" has a gorgeous green overtone to it in the right lighting conditions. I still stare … Continue reading Russian Incense nails

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.

Meet Mr Sparkles the Unicorn!

Mr Sparkles the Unicorn

Meet Mr Sparkles the Unicorn! I was in an odd mood when I had these on my nails and named him then kept pestering my boyfriend, telling him to speak to Mr Sparkles and all sorts of random stuff. What can I say? 🙂 I blame how incredibly pretty Captive Goddess is. All polishes used … Continue reading Mr Sparkles the Unicorn
