I've become a huge fan of a gradient recently and I still love combining it with a clean stripe too so I did a full A England based one a little while ago.

Green A England Gradient

Ok so my clean up here wasn't great. I think I got my liquid latex on the nail a bit and then just failed with sponging on the gradient too but never mind. The colours are gorgeous I think and I really loved this manicure. I applied Excalibur Renaissance first over a base coat then … Continue reading Green A England Gradient

Russian Incense featuring my two favourite polishes and some watermarbling

Russian Incense nails

Today's nail art is a little bit summer and a little bit autumn. It is using my two favourite A England nail polishes, "Incense Burner" and "Katyusha". You can't really see it in any of these pictures but "Incense Burner" has a gorgeous green overtone to it in the right lighting conditions. I still stare … Continue reading Russian Incense nails

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

A quick update to explain why I haven't posted this week; I've done nothing nail related! I do still have old nail art to post but I'm awaiting the beautiful new collection from A England and will of course be doing a swatch/review post. The collection is called Russian Soul and will be available on … Continue reading Russian Soul

It also uses my three favourite colours, purple, silver and green so I'm bound to revisit this in some form. What do you guys think? I love … Continue reading Silver, purple and green flowers

A England "Queen of Scots"

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

I can't get over how gorgeous Zoya - "Honor" is or the shine on the Nails Inc polish.

Paint Can and Zoya

Todays post is a mini-review with a little manicure thrown in. I will eventually get a video up for this review as well simply because it is needed to show just how good this product is (in my opinion at least). A friend of mine pointed this out to me in a magazine. Spray on … Continue reading Paint Can and Zoya
