Morgan Taylor Looking For A Wingman | Sweetheart Squadron Collection

Morgan Taylor Looking For A Wingman is a burgundy creme.

It’s another very pretty polish from the Sweetheart Squadron Collection for autumn.

It’s not a classic maroon or mahogany burgundy. Instead, it leans to the pinker side of burgundy. This means it has a berry look … once again, a perfect autumn colour.

This needed two coats for complete opacity, but one thick coat would probably have worked too. It painted on like a dream too.

Morgan Taylor Rule The Runway | Sweetheart Squadron Collection

Morgan Taylor Rule The Runway is another polish from the Sweetheart Squadron collection for Autumn 2016.

Of the six polishes, this is the third one that I have reviewed so far. And just like the others, it does not disappoint.

Rule the Runway is a light grey that has a slight warm lavender tone to it. I hesitate to call it a greige, because technically that’s a mix of grey and beige. But others might call it a greige.

It painted on smoothly and evenly and then dried nice and quickly too. Just like the others, the longevity has been superb. I wore it for about four or five days in the end I think. And for me to wear a polish that long means that it didn’t chip in that time, because I always re-paint at the first sign of a chip.

This collection has so far been an absolute delight. Look out for my reviews of the berry burgundy, the sage green and the coral polishes, which are all coming up in the next week or so.

In the UK you can buy Morgan Taylor nail polishes in Sally’s stores – or online at www.sallyexpress.com. They cost £10.99 each. I really feel these polishes are good value for that because they really last well.

Pastel Halloween Pumpkin Faces | Halloween In The Wrong Colours | 26 Great Nail Art Ideas

Don’t these pastel Halloween pumpkin faces look weird? It’s not right to see Halloween done in the wrong colours! But that’s the theme for this week’s 26 Great Nail Art Ideas group.

My Facebook feed has been filled with similar things – pumpkins and graveyards and bats and witches … but done in pinks and pastels and neons! The nails look so wrong, but it’s a great idea for a theme.

I tried to think of the least Halloweeny colours I could. Pastel pinky-peach and pinky-lilac in a gradient was just perfect.

The first colour in the gradient, the peachy colour, is China Glaze Pack Lightly. This comes from the Spring 2015 Road Trip collection. It has a subtle gold shimmer to it that I could only see well under artificial light. It hasn’t come out in my photos at all. What was more surprising is that this technically a neon polish. It glows under UV light. So, that is very apt for Halloween.

The other gradient colour is Barry M Fondant. Also from a Spring 2015 collection, this is a pinky-lilac shade.

After that, I added some Halloween pumpkin faces. Traditionally these would be black, so to turn Halloween on its head, I used white. The pumpkin faces were created using nail vinyls from She Sells Seashells. I bought these last year, but didn’t get around to using them.

What do you think of these then? I can’t see this being a trend that catches on, but it’s fun to see. Have a look at all the “Halloween in the wrong colours” manicure below.

Morgan Taylor Put A Wing On It | Sweetheart Squadron Collection

Morgan Taylor Put A Wing On It is the second of six polishes in the Sweetheart Squadron collection that I am reviewing.

Once again I feel that Morgan Taylor has mis-described a polish. They call it a fiery red, but I think it’s more of a burnt orange in colour. The base does lean quite strongly towards red, but the tiny, gold-coloured flakies give it a glow that makes the overall colour far more orange for me.

I used three coats in these photos, but it really only needs two. I added the third coat after I had worn the polish for a couple of days and the gap between the polish and my cuticles was getting too large for my liking (vain me!)

It’s a very autumnal polish. And is particularly good for Halloween manicures. It dries matte, which is often a sign that a polish is a neon. So I checked it under UV light and it is indeed a neon. It glows pretty bright actually, and that probably makes it even more apt for a Halloween polish.

Autumn Jumper Knitted Nails | Inspired By The Weather | Twinsie Tuesday

These knitted nails are for this week’s Twinsie Tuesday prompt, inspired by the weather. I’m a day late with this, but better late than never!

The weather here in south London is currently just grey and a bit cold. So I didn’t feel that gave me much literal inspiration. Instead, I thought around that a little and realised that this time of the year is when we start to turn on the heating while we’re indoors, and add another layer while we’re out.

That extra layer for many is a cosy jumper, so I painted some knitted nails. The base is Barry M Almond, a soft taupe colour. Barry M launched it in 2014 as part of their summer collection, but it’s not really a traditionally summery colour. It’s far more appropriate for autumn.

I stamped over that using another Barry M shade, from the same Summer 2014 collection: Coconut. This is a creamy, just off-white shade. It stamps quite well if you want a thinner look to your stamping. And that is what I was going for with this.

The stamping plate is hēhē Plus Fairy Tale 005. It has lots of lace and a couple of knitted patterns on it. You can buy it from the hēhē website.

As lovely as they are, the nails aren’t going to keep me warm though. So I’ve turned up the heating!
