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

Cyan blue and silver skittlette with zigzags and studs

This is a skittlette I created to wear out with a matching cyan blue top. In the event though, I managed to dribble toothpaste down the top just before we left and so had to change what I was wearing. Typical. The blue is Barry M Cyan Blue, a perfect formula, near single coater. It […] Read more

Scofflaw This Must Be The Place: Indie: Never-ending Pile Challenge

For today’s indie prompt in the Never-ending Pile challenge, I had so many polishes to choose from, and went with one I’ve been dying to wear, but just somehow haven’t got around to: Scofflaw This Must Be The Place. It’s a cream coloured base with pink and purple micro-glitters and small gold flakies. It’s very […] Read more

OPI Excuse Moi!: Jelly: Never-ending Pile Challenge

I had three untried jelly polishes to choose from for today’s Never-ending Pile challenge. I went with OPI Excuse Moi!, which came from the Muppets collection that was released at Christmas 2011. I wasn’t even into painting my nails then (I got hooked in the summer of 2012), but I bought this just recently, in […] Read more

Happy Valentine’s Day! Well, I made it. I’ve posted every day for the Week of Love Valentine’s Nail Art Challenge. Today’s final prompt calls for us to recreate someone else’s manicure or to do something freestyle. I tried a few different things out that I’d not done before, but they all failed, so in the […] 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

Born Pretty Store faceted heart studs

Well that was some stormy night last night. I managed to finally fall asleep at about 3.30 am as the wind began to die down a little. I hope you didn’t suffer too badly if you’re in the UK (although if you’re in the north, you have it to come later today). I wore these […] Read more

33DC Day 30: the same pattern, different colours

I had a lovely manicure planned for Day 30 of the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts 33 Day Challenge. It would have used seventeen different polishes! But, I hadn’t had time to make a start on it until today, so I decided that, on top of all the work I have to do today, my complicated manicure […] Read more
