Silver with Red Diamond Stamping: S is for: Silver

I didn’t mange to post on time yesterday for the A2Z series challenge, and I’m a day late. It’s S this time, for silver. Firstly I painted my nails using W7 Silver Suede.

Red and Purple Gradient with Stamping: N is for: New

I have a couple of new things for this week’s A2Z series challenge prompt, for N is for new; the red polish and the stamping plate are both new. The red is Ciaté Kitten Heels. I bought it for £1.50 in an Original Factory Shop that was closing down. It’s a lovely colour, but quite […] Read more

Brush stroke metallics skittle (52 Week Challenge)

This week’s 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge is either brush stroke or favourite brand. Having not done a brush stroke manicure before, that was my immediate choice.

33DC Day 9: Indian

For me, “Indian” is more about the sub-continent of India than Native American Indians because I’ve travelled in India a couple of times. So I did at least get that far, but then I got a bit stuck.
