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

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. Only one picture I'm afraid. The bronze polish is "Sprung" from OPI and the nude is "Vanilla" … Continue reading Nude Christmas

Black and Gold

Black and Gold

A quick post today, it seems that as I'm going through all my old posts I either took around 1 million too many pictures of each manicure or 2. These were actually my nails for my work Christmas party and I loved them. Might have to give it another go. The black is "Camelot" by … Continue reading Black and Gold

A England "Queen of Scots"

Holly Christmas nails using the polishes from November's Nailbox

November Nailbox

Sorry, I'm so sorry! I'm sitting here with my Christmas tree twinkling, tinsel round the monitor and adorning my desk and feeling very guilty for a lack of blog updates. I had grand ideas of designs and inspiration, last minute gift ideas for nail lovers... well that all went out the window! So I'm finally … Continue reading November Nailbox

Goodies!

Nailpolish.co.uk Review

Who doesn't love free stuff? I saw an advert for nailpolish.co.uk asking for bloggers who would like to review a couple of polishes so I jumped at the chance. I certainly wasn't expecting all the items I got above though! Nailpolish.co.uk is a website I've looked at many a time and come very close to … Continue reading Nailpolish.co.uk Review

Feeling a little autumnal, read on to see my pick of colours

Looking forward to autumn

Yeah I know, it's barely even August but I don't like summer! Well I do, just wish it wasn't as warm as it is; I'm a northern, pale-skinned girl, heat does not sit well with me. I was not impressed this morning to wake up at 6am and find it was already 18 degrees. That … Continue reading Looking forward to autumn

The contents of the July nailbox

July Nailbox

I haven't caught on to the subscription box trend. Apparently it was big a few years ago but it completely passed me by. However this one has now caught my eye. Nailbox UK is a UK based nail polish subscription box and it first came to my attention when Sammy of The Nailasaurus did a … Continue reading July Nailbox

Barry M Daylight Curing Topcoat – Use with any polish?

A little bit of everything today. This is actually something I did way back at the end of April, partly as I had cut my nails right down and wanted a nice bit of art to cover them and partly because the Daylight Curing range had just been released by Barry M and I wanted … Continue reading Barry M Daylight Curing Topcoat – Use with any polish?

The offending bottles, "My Gecko Does Tricks" and the gold flake topper.

Golden Gecko

I can't help it, I'm weak willed. Whenever I go on holiday I have to buy some OPI; aside from the internet there's nowhere else I can get it and it might still not be cheap but it's cheaper at least! So this time when I went away I ended up picking up "My Gecko … Continue reading Golden Gecko
