Red Carpet Manicure: Bloom Style Collection

I have neglected my blog a little and haven’t been posting very much recently. I’ve still been photographing my nails though, so I’m playing catch up now and getting a few posts out. This is the 2018 Spring Summer Bloom Style Collection from Red Carpet Manicure. It’s a collection of six gel polishes in a […] Read more

Blue geometric glitter nails

These blue geometric glitter nails were inspired by a manicure I saw by Paulina of Paulina’s Passions. I saw it and thought I’d love to create something similar but using blue – but I don’t like my manicure half as much as I like hers. I think it’s probably because the glitter is more prominent on […] Read more

SensatioNail Blue Chrome Powder

I kind of missed the chrome nails fad. I was so busy at the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017 that I took a bit of a step back from blogging. In retrospect, it was a good move and it allowed me to have a bit of a break rather than burn out, […] Read more

Neon brights stamping marble smoosh

It’s been a while since I’ve done much nail art. My nails have only really had plain nail polish on them for a lot of the time over the past year or so, as I’ve been so busy with work and my volunteering commitments. So, this stamping marble using some neon brights from the Morgan […] Read more

Morgan Taylor Best Face Forward

This beauty is Morgan Taylor Best Face Forward. It’s from the Selfie collection, a collection of six fun, bright summer shades. Best Face Forward is alone in the collection as the only flakie polish. It’s a purple – that sometimes looks inky blue – with cyan blue and pinky-purple flakies in it. I couldn’t quite […] Read more

Blue herringbone stamping | Bundle Monster BM-XL212

This blue herringbone stamping manicure disappointed a little on camera. In the flesh, it was awesome, creating a stunning optical illusion effect of a 3D pattern. But I just couldn’t seem to capture how it looked on camera. It’s a real shame that I can’t demonstrate how good this looked, but if you have this […] Read more

Blue and Silver Filigree Nails | 26 Great Nail Art Ideas

Nail blog posts from me are a bit like buses: none for a month and then two come along at once! So after a bit of a break, I’m back to posting with some blue and silver filigree nails. These are for a new challenge: 26 Great Nail Art Ideas. It’s a once a fortnight […] Read more

Multicoloured Floral Nails | Hippie Flower Power Nails | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

These multicoloured floral nails, reminiscent of “flower power”are for the festivals / hippie travels prompt for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group. I wasn’t sure at first what direction to take with this prompt. Admittedly, I was born in the year the term “hippie” became widespread, the year of the Human Be-In and the […] 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

Pink and Aqua Flowers | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

These pink and aqua flowers are for the pink and aqua theme (a couple of weeks ago now – ooops) of the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group. As ever, there’s a personal prompt that goes along with each colour theme, and mine was “on a nude base” – easy enough! I was going to […] Read more
