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.

Purple and green duochrome with star studs: S is for Starlet

It’s letter S this week in the A to Z series challenge and I’ve gone for Startlet from Ciaté, to which I added some star studs as a nod to the polish’s name. I bought this polish along with about ten others in a buying frenzy at my local The Original Factory Shop. If you […] Read more

I’ve been nominated for a Liebster award

Alyssia from Rose Tint My Nails has nominated me for a Liebster award. How lovely! Someone other than me is actually reading my blog! I don’t know who started this award.
