Natural daylight bottles and swatches, here you can really see the differences

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

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

Purple Reign – an A England comparison

I'm pretty sure Adina has an unhealthy obsession with purples (much like my obsession with green!) so I have decided to do a comparison of the purple polishes we have so far in the A England collections. First up we have the holographic purples. These are all actually quite drastically different really although the holographic … Continue reading Purple Reign – an A England comparison

Palm Tree nails

Summertime palm tree nails

I hate looking back at old nail art, it always looks so terrible! I did this one last summer and never got round to posting it so figured we could go for a bit of a holiday vibe today. It was very simple to do so I'm sure you guys can recreate it far better … Continue reading Summertime palm tree 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

Contents of the August Nailbox. Finishing summer in style

August Nailbox

I'm not going to do a massively in-depth review of this months Nailbox as I already went over the merits of the actual subscription in the July Nailbox review. You can also compare it to the MeeBox if you're not sure which box you want, I will be doing a short post later this week … Continue reading August Nailbox

Finally I topped it all off with Rica's Glossy Glam top coat et voila! Gorgeous manicure :)

Brown Gradient with Gold Stripes

Without a doubt my new favourite manicure. I can see this one getting recreated lots, maybe with different colours but definitely again with these exact shades. Unfortunately I didn't snap any pictures whilst doing it but I can explain how to do it easily enough in the captions. I hope you guys love it as … Continue reading Brown Gradient with Gold Stripes

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

Solo shot of the nails. The more foil-like silver is Excalibur Renaissance, the other is Encore Margot; you can't see it in these pictures but it's a holographic polish

Scallyann Sunday!

We have a special post today, featuring a lovely manicure by my friend/colleague/fellow nail nut the talented @Scallyann (Instagram). She did a similar one to this ages ago but it didn't last long enough to get pictures so she has remastered it using A England polishes (all available on the shop) and personally I think … Continue reading Scallyann Sunday!
