Black and Silver Laser Nails | New Year | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

This week for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group, we’re posting New Year nails. I have some party nails, done with a black and silver laser pattern. They are inspired by the nails that first got me interested in nail polish, back in 2011. I was going to a 40th birthday party that had […] Read more

Bundle Monster Ain’t No Basic B!tch Speed Gel Collection

Bundle Monster has a new gel polish collection out, called Ain’t No Basic B!tch. They are “speed gels”, which is Bundle Monster’s term for one-step gel polish. They don’t need a base or top coat, just two coats of the gel polish itself, and you don’t need to wipe off the sticky layer either (because […] Read more

Morgan Taylor Under The Stars with Mermaid Scales Stamping (52 Week Challenge)

Oops, I’m late again for the 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge … but only by a day. The prompts were navy and scales. I’ve combined them this week and have used Morgan Taylor Under The Stars, stamped with a mermaid scales design in silver. Morgan Taylor Under The Stars is a long time lemming […] Read more

Blue and Purple Textured Glitter Zigzags: T is for: Textured

I’ve used some textured glitter for T is for textured in the A2Z series challenge this week. Both polishes are from the 2true Sequins collection and are Eva, which is the blue one, and Naomi, the purple one. I have one other nail polish from this 5-part collection; it’s the silver one, called Christy. I’ve […] Read more

Quirk Éponine over Barry M Vintage Violet: Q is for: Quirky

Q for quirky for the A2Z series challenge was a tough one. So I took the easy option and used a polish from Quirk. This is Éponine, made by Kerrie from Quirk Polish (and the blogger behind PishPosh & Polish). Sadly, she stopped making her indie polishes last year. It is a clear base with […] Read more

Gold glitter gradient

I forgot to post these nails last week. They’re what I wore on Christmas Day. But they could be New Year’s Eve nails though, right? The base looks black but it’s actually W7 Black Cherry, a very dark red. I don’t own Chanel Rouge Noir, but my guess is that this is W7’s take on […] Read more

SpaRitual First Snow

SpaRitual has released a new winter collection, called Snow Globe. It consists of three top coat polishes: Snow Globe, First Snow and Starry Winter Night. I received First Snow to review. It’s a clear polish, dense with holographic glitters, and with a sprinkling of tiny white square glitters. I love square glitters, and who doesn’t […] Read more

Three Colour Loose Glitter Gradient

I received some loose glitter for review from NYK1 Secrets and created a glitter gradient. I happened to create this over an existing manicure of Barry M Ballerina, but you can’t see that through the glitter, so you could easily do this over bare nails. The plain nails are three coats of Deborah Lippmann Call […] Read more

Red with glittery gold stripes

I’ve been going through a bit of a nail art rut recently, so I have been trawling Instagram and Pinterest to get some inspiration. I was struck by this manicure by nailsofjessek on Instagram and decided to recreate it, only with a different coloured base. So this is two coats of China Glaze High Roller, […] Read more
