eye candy Juicylicious

One of the first polishes I blogged about was Eye Candy It’s All Good. I had terrible problems with it drying … even though I had painted my nails in the early afternoon, I had sheet marks the next day. When Eye Candy’s sister brand, Invogue, launched in about March of this year, I asked […] Read more

eye candy It’s All Good: it’s not so good after all

In yesterday’s post, I was praising eye CANDY LONDON’s It’s All Good. But despite finishing my manicure (three coats and a top coat) by early afternoon – I woke up this morning with sheet marks on my nails. I have never had that before. They did say they don’t use “fast drying formulations”, well I […] Read more

This look was first created (and then commercialised) by Ciaté, but has been widely copied since. I was excited to do the manicure and it was really easy. I used […] Read more

China Glaze stripey pink, plum and white water marble

This is my first (successful) full manicure water marble. Before I started blogging, I attempted a water marble manicure on all ten nails, but it was pretty rubbish because there wasn’t enough contrast in the colours I used, and I quickly removed it. I’ve also done one accent nail water marble, which I loved and […] Read more
