Glitter-fest: revlon Dreamer layered with revlon Radiant

I can’t seem to get enough of glitter at the moment, but this manicure didn’t start off that way. I started with a base of Revlon Dreamer, which is a lovely pale cornflower blue. I was going to stamp over it with a darker teal, but I just couldn’t get the stamping right, even after […] Read more

revlon All Fired Up – my favourite red

My all time favourite red is All Fired Up from Revlon. It’s just a classic, perfect shiny red and I love it. But I can’t seem to find it any more, and my bottle is half empty (or is it half full?) I read somewhere on a blog that it has been rebranded and that […] Read more

Free revlon and Barry M polishes at Boots

I popped into Boots this morning – not for nail polish for a change – but of course I couldn’t help but have a quick look at them all, could I? And I’m glad I did because there are a few offers on that I took advantage of. Firstly, Revlon polish is on offer. When […] Read more

Red, Yellow and Green Saran Wrap | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

This manicure is a red, yellow and green Saran wrap manicure for one of the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas themes. After far too many weeks out of the nail art loop, I have finally managed to jump back in. And this manicure is about four weeks late. In fact, the challenge is now over, and […] Read more

Pink Mosaic Stripes | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

The 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group is doing hot pink and my personal prompt was mosaic or stained glass, so I have some pink mosaic stripes. Not all the polishes I used are hot pink, but then when you’re doing mosaic, you need lots of different colours. My first attempt at mosaic nails began […] Read more

The two worked OK together, so I was pleased, and the result is these orange and red gradient leopard nails. The gradient is made from a pale orange (Revlon Sorbet), a mid orange (Barry M […] 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

Dandelion Nails | Things That Fly | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

These dandelion nails are for the “things that fly” prompt for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group I really wanted to have dragonflies on my nails, but could only find a solitary one on a Bundle Monster plate. So I thought I’d try to be a little different and go for a non-animal/insect flying […] Read more

Blue Fan Brush Nails | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

I have some blue fan brush nails for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas prompt for pale blue base. I started with a base of OPI Gelato On My Mind, from the Venice collection. It’s the perfect shade of pale blue. You can’t see much of it though with all the fan brush strokes I’ve […] Read more
