rimmel Midnight Blue

I first spotted Rimmel Midnight Blue on the nails of an assistant in my opticians. I loved it and asked her what it was. I pride myself that I pretty much know all the mainstream brands you get in the UK, and I knew I hadn’t seen this one before. So I trotted off to […] Read more

rimmel Navy Seal with cream stripes

I posted on Twitter the other day about being lacking in nailspiration. I seemed not to be able to think beyond stripes, chevrons and zig zags. Several kind people prompted me with some ideas, but I’ve come back to stripes. Again. I do love them. I got it into my head that cream stripes over […] 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

rimmel Too Cool To Tango

I’m self employed, and run a couple of companies, one of which is teaching marketing courses. At a workshop last week, one of my delegates was wearing a lovely polish. I asked her what it was and she said it was Rimmel, but wasn’t sure what the name was. In the evening after the course, […] Read more

rimmel Double Decker Red

I own 11 different pillar box/London bus plain reds.  Four of these I’ve not yet tried. But so far, L’Oreal Rouge Cancan and Revlon All Fired Up have been my favourites. Rimmel Double Decker Red doesn’t quite beat either of those for me. It’s a lovely colour and the application of the polish is great, […] Read more

rimmel Blue Eyed Girl

I bought this polish quite a few months ago now, and loved it so much I thought I would wear it straight away. But I bought it near the beginning of my polish obsession, when I was buying so much polish it seemed I’d never wear all of it! (And that still seems quite a […] Read more

Peach Roses | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

I’m a little late in posting these peach roses as it has been back to school for my son this week, and that has meant I’ve been running around with lots to do to get him sorted and ready. These nails are for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group, where the colour prompt was […] Read more

Festival Nails | June 2016 Nailbox

I used the June 2016 Nailbox content to create a festival nails look. This is the first subscription box of polish that I have received. I’ve not signed up to one before because I now have so much polish (I’m approaching 1,000 bottles) and I think that I probably own practically every colour out there, […] Read more

Coral, White and Negative Space Stripes | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

These coral, white and negative space stripes are for the coral and white theme for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group. My own prompt was negative space. I seem to have done so many negative space manicures recently, despite not really liking them. I don’t like how my nails are too stained for this […] Read more

Rainbow Water Marble | Twinsie Tuesday

We’re marbling this week for Twinsie Tuesday – whether that’s a water marble, dry marble or needle drag – and I have created some rainbow water marble nails. Now, water marbling doesn’t always work out for me. It’s almost certainly a case of getting the right polishes for it. And for this manicure, it seems […] Read more
