The gorgeous holographic vision of "Beggar Maid" and "In Robe and Crown" from A England

Beggar Maid In Robe and Crown

Autumn is all about golds, oranges, reds and browns for me. The beautiful colours as the leaves turn before dropping from the branches. I'm not feeling overly inspired to do my nails recently but looking back over some that I haven't posted I came across this and it just feels simple but effective. I might … Continue reading Beggar Maid In Robe and Crown

Nude Christmas! OPI "Sprung" and Barry M "Vanilla"

Nude Christmas

Ooo-er matron! Sounds a bit racy doesn't it?! Ok so it's not quite December but I came across this one that I hadn't posted last year and I loved the nails so will probably redo them this year.

Perfect Pinks – an A England comparison

Since I did one for all the purples and because it was requested I have done a quick comparison of 3 of the pinks available at the moment from A England. This was requested by Jess after viewing the Autumn/Winter 2016 collection "Tennyson's Romance" and is something I had thought of doing anyway as "Shall … Continue reading Perfect Pinks – an A England comparison

Sometimes simple is best and if it also reminds you of cake what's not to love?! Polishes used were "Stop the Clock" from Barry M's Speedy Dry collection and … Continue reading Lemon and Blueberry 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. 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
