Week Of Love Valentine’s Nail Art Challenge: Candy Heart Sayings

I’m taking on the Week of Love Valentine’s Nail Art Challenge. It’s all this week, so five days, culminating on Friday, which is Valentine’s Day. In the US, candy hearts seem to be actually heart shaped. In the UK we have Love Hearts, which are round and then have a raised heart shape and raised […] Read more

FingerFood’s Theme Weeks: Hearts: Rimmel Space Dust Luna Love

As we get closer to Valentine’s, it’s no surprise that this week’s theme in the FingerFood’s Theme Weeks challenge is hearts. I’m doing the Week Of Love Valentine’s challenge starting tomorrow too, so there are going to be lots of red, pink and lovey-dovey manicures coming up! The pink nails are three coats of Rimmel […] Read more

Laquerdaisical Purple Phase

I have another Laquerdaisical polish on today. This is Purple Phase, a thermal, colour-changing polish that goes from blue/grey when warm to dark purple when cold. The formula was again quite thick, and tended to drag if you went over the same spot, so I had to ensure I did the manicure carefully.  Some thinner […] Read more

Laquerdaisical Load of Pollocks

I have another Laquerdaisical polish on today. This is Load of Pollocks, a fab, multi-coloured glitter in a white base. I’m a sucker for these kinds of polishes. KBShimmer Oh Splat! is one of my favourites of all time. Seeing as the Royal Mail loves to destroy inbound polish parcels, this one from UK indie […] Read more

FingerFood’s Theme Weeks: Birthdays / Celebrations: Sally Hanson Pronto Purple stamped with Cheeky CH9

I was a bit stumped for something for today’s FingerFood’s Theme Weeks challenge, which is all about birthdays or celebrations. I’d left it right to the last minute (it’s 7pm on Sunday night and I’ve just finished and photographed the manicure!) and I hadn’t really come up with anything prior to today. So I’ve gone […] Read more

Red skittlette nails: A England Perceval, China Glaze I’m Not Lion, zig zags and studs

I was going out for a meal with friends and was planning on wearing a red top, so I wanted some nails to match. I decided on a similar look to my blue and silver skittlette manicure that I did not long ago, but using red and gold instead. The red nails are two coats […] Read more
