Final shot, love this picture too. Such a perfect rose and these were my two best nails as well

Valentines nails 2017

I don't actually celebrate Valentines but oh well, sometimes you just have to go with the flow and do the nails anyway. Plus I got caught on my way to work by our local BBC radio "out on the streets" guy and did a 30 second interview in exchange for a rose which was the … Continue reading Valentines nails 2017

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

A England "Perceval"

Perceval visits Mayfair Market

I haven't had any nail mail in a while so when I saw Nails Inc had released a new paint can I just had to snap it up. Of course as any nail fan knows as soon as you go on their website you will see all the colours you want. Luckily I went on … Continue reading Perceval visits Mayfair Market

A England "Queen of Scots"

Red, blue and silver blobbicure

Now I'm not getting the subscription boxes anymore there should be more time for actual nail art! I've got quite a few still to post from last year so let's start with my first ever attempt at a blobbicure. So here are the tools I used for this one. A-England "Queen of Scots" and OPI's … Continue reading Red, blue and silver blobbicure

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

Octobers Nailbox Contents - possibly the best colours yet

October Nailbox

Well I was mildly but we'll get on to that and it certainly wasn't Nailbox's fault! First up with the tools we have some nail … Continue reading October Nailbox

September Meebox Contents

September Meebox 002 Review

More pretty nail mail! The September Meebox is just as lovely as the August one as far as the presentation and the contents go. The same gorgeous wrapping, the same cute little "Hello, it's mee" sticker (still in love with that) and a beautiful array of "Hello Sailor" themed goodies. So read on to see … Continue reading September Meebox 002 Review

31 Day Challenge Prompts

31 Day Challenge #31dc2015 – Week 1

So here we go, my first ever attempt at the 31 day challenge. A tough schedule, a tough list of prompts and it hasn't been helped by the fact I've apparently lost all skill in hand poses, photography and lighting (what little I had anyway). So please do excuse the pictures. I may eventually do … Continue reading 31 Day Challenge #31dc2015 – Week 1

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

Saint George Bunting

Happy Saint George's Day! I probably should have had this tutorial up before today so you could all sport this design today but... well never mind. Really pleased with how it turned out and I'm sure this design could be adapted for lots of holidays and festivals. I also feel I should have put more … Continue reading Saint George Bunting
