GOT Polish Challenge: Dots: gradient red and coral dots

It’s dots today in the Golden Oldie Thursday (GOT) Polish Challenge. I was going to recreate my lovely dotted manicure that I did back last September and I pulled out some different colours to try out. But I couldn’t find a colour scheme that went well together at all. Then I spied some Ciaté polishes […] Read more

January’s Polish Party: January Blues: blue roses

I joined a group on Twitter who have a Polish Party once a month. We all do nail art to a theme and this time around we’re doing January Blues. I’ve done quite a lot of blue manicures recently – good thing it’s my favourite colour! I decided to be cheery about my “blues” and […] Read more

Blue and Green Sparkly Stars: Sparkle: FingerFood’s Theme Weeks

This week’s theme in the FingerFood’s Theme Weeks challenge is sparkle. I thought about going all out with some blingy rhinestones, or some glitter, but ultimately I chose something a little more understated, but still with sparkle.

GOT Polish Challenge: Blue: double chevron half moons

This week’s Golden Oldie Thursday (GOT) Polish Challenge is all about blue; my favourite colour.

The pale blue is Revlon […] Read more

FingerFood’s Theme Weeks: Weather: stamped lilac clouds over Zoya Payton

The theme for this FingerFood’s Theme Weeks challenge is weather. I’ve been a bit lazy today. I have left this a bit late – I’ve not done anything until today – and I was originally going to draw the icons from the BBC weather forecasts. You know the ones, the curly clouds with raindrops and […] Read more

Polish Me Silly Grape Intentions

I was only really just about getting into indie polishes when the Royal Mail started destroying incoming nail polish parcels. At that stage, I think I’d only ordered from abroad once or twice. That was some time ago now, and since then I’ve been ogling lots of gorgeous polishes that I want from the US, […] Read more

GOT Polish Challenge: Stripes: Black, grey and white gradient stripes

It’s stripes today in the Golden Oldie Thursday (GOT) Polish Challenge. There are prompts ahead in the challenge for a number of colours, so where I can, I want to try not to use those specified colours in the styles challenges. So I decided – at first – to go with a red, black and […] Read more

FingerFood’s Theme Weeks: Shapes / Geometric: Colourful Circles

This week in the FingerFood’s Theme Weeks challenge we’re doing geometric nails. I saw a fabulous picture on Pinterest of a funky coat (image further down), and that became my inspiration for this manicure. After applying a base of two coats of Sinful Colors Snow Me White, I used hole reinforcer stickers so I could […] Read more
