Spring ladybirds!

Spring Ladybirds

I loved my ladybirds when I did them for the 31 day challenge so I had to recreate them at some point. These were a fresher, more springlike feel with the french dotticure on the rest of the nails and I'm still very happy with how the ladybird turned out. Mayfair Market is a gorgeous … Continue reading Spring Ladybirds

Lemon and Blueberry nails

Lemon and Blueberry nails

Just a nice quick one this morning. I did these nails ages ago and they were inspired by a lemon and blueberry drizzle cake I made. Sometimes simple is best and if it also reminds you of cake what's not to love?! Polishes used were "Stop the Clock" from Barry M's Speedy Dry collection and … Continue reading Lemon and Blueberry 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

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

First attempt at stamping

First attempt at stamping

Just a quick stop post today, the weekend has completely gotten away from me. The above was my first ever attempt at stamping (about a year ago!). I think the green is "Saint George" from A England and I want to say the base was one of the Speedy Dry range from Barry M.

Freehand neon stripes to brighten up any day!

Neon Stripes

Morning everyone! It's a gorgeous blue sky, sunny day here, cold but clear so what better way to brighten up everyones day than with some neons? This is yet another of my "I wore this ages ago and didn't post it yet" manicures so as usual apologies! The China Glaze white is a great polish … Continue reading Neon Stripes

Getting arty with the bottles in the background and the flowers in my hand ;)

Summer Flowers

So continuing with my very old, out of date manicures that should've been published months ago we now have a summer flowers one. This was inspired by one of the tubs on my balcony when the flowers were in bloom. Unfortunately the green smeared across my white somewhat so the flowers are a little discoloured. … Continue reading Summer Flowers

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

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

Super Shiny Watermarble

  Metallic AND holographic. I went through a bit of a metallic and watermarble phase and I just love how this one turned out. It did take me a long time to get it right (about 4 hours one Sunday afternoon, 2 of my nails just would not marble without smudging!) but in the end … Continue reading Super Shiny Watermarble
