Morgan Taylor Looking For A Wingman | Sweetheart Squadron Collection

Morgan Taylor Looking For A Wingman is a burgundy creme. It’s another very pretty polish from the Sweetheart Squadron Collection for autumn. It’s not a classic maroon or mahogany burgundy. Instead, it leans to the pinker side of burgundy. This means it has a berry look … once again, a perfect autumn colour. This needed […] Read more

Burgundy With Cream Roses | Theatre Inspired | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

I wore this burgundy with cream roses manicure a few weeks ago. I posted it to my Instagram account, but didn’t get around to putting it on the blog. The theme for this week’s 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group is “inspiration”. These nails were inspired by a trip I took to the Rose Playhouse […] Read more

Burgundy and Red Needle Drag| Twinsie Tuesday

This week’s Twinsie Tuesday prompt is vampy. To me, vampy is all about dark red, so I did a burgundy and red needle drag manicure. Working one nail at a time, I first painted on one thickish coat of L’Oréal Hypnotic Red. It’s a deep burgundy, almost black, shade and is the perfect vampy red. […] Read more

Barry M Crush with Triangular Studs (52 Week Challenge)

The two prompts for this week’s 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge are burgundy and/or needle drag. I’ve only just caught up on last week’s challenge, which I posted yesterday, and so I took the easy option and went with a plain-ish burgundy manicure. The colour is Barry M Crush, from the matte collection. I […] Read more

Born Pretty Store BP-10 stamped over Zoya Claire

I received a stamper from Born Pretty Store to review and they very kindly threw in a plate too. I decided to test the plate and stamper over Zoya Claire. I had to have a polish called Claire, didn’t I? It’s not my favourite shade ever, but it’s still a nice rich burgundy, bordering on […] Read more

33DC Day 19: Follow Someone’s Tutorial

It’s day 19 and today in the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts 33 Day Challenge we’re following someone’s tutorial. I’ve always wanted to do the flowers that MrCandiipants does using just the polish brushes and decided at the beginning of this challenge that I would do just that when it came to day 19. In the past […] Read more

33DC Day 18: Featuring 2 Patterns

Day 18 of the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts 33 Day Challenge calls for a manicure featuring two patterns. I was going to do dots and stripes, but it kind of evolved into dotted flowers and stripes instead when I saw this post and wanted to copy the flowers. I started off with a base of OPI […] Read more

33DC Day 6: Textured

I really enjoyed this manicure that I created for day 6 of the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts 33 Day Challenge. Finally, I am wearing a manicure on all of my nails – not just four – and I will be keeping it on for several days, rather than swiftly removing it after deciding I don’t like […] Read more

SpaRitual From The Heart

From the Heart is a deep red cream polish. It is a beautiful colour for autumn, and has immediately replaced my previous favourite deep red, which was Rimmel’s Rapid Ruby. It’s a classy, rich maroon-coloured polish and I have to say it went on sublimely. I absolutely love the quality of SpaRitual polishes and am […] Read more
