Finally I used a Models Own nail art pen to draw the black outlines on for the stained glass window. This helped make the rose look a bit more rose like

Beauty and the Beast

I've been excited but also anxious about the live action version of Beauty and the Beast. I went to see it today and had to have nails to match it. Anyone who loves the original Disney carton definitely needs to go and see this film, it was amazing. So true to it and the additions … Continue reading Beauty and the Beast

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

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

Day 31: Honour Nails You Love. Well I love a lot of designs. My "Nails" board on Pinterest is filling up rapidly with them. So I decided to just be lazy and go for the last ones I did that I really truly loved, my brown and gold striped gradients but in a different colour. And I love how these turned out just as much. I love the design so much I'm wearing yet another colour variant of it right now though it's not quite so lovely on stubby nails

31 Day Challenge #31dc2015 – The Finale

*Collapses on floor and whimpers* Well I did it. I completed the 31 day challenge. Towards the end I didn't so much as want to look at nail polish anymore. I was so happy to be getting to the end and having a while of not having to do art, I could maybe even just … Continue reading 31 Day Challenge #31dc2015 – The Finale

A-England Roses

  Beautiful polishes, beautiful flowers. I really can't get over how amazing the A England polishes are. One coat pretty much always covers everything (a couple of exceptions) and this nail art just proved it to me. Done entirely with A England polishes, I used "Briar Rose" for the main pink, "Fonteyn" for the highlights … Continue reading A-England Roses
