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

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

Miami Nice Meebox March 2017

Here’s some nail art I created using the Miami Nice Meebox, for March 2017. As I’m visiting Miami a little later in the year, I thought I’d try out an outlandish 80s Miami look. I’ve been obsessed with nail polish for coming up five years, yet there are three bottles of polish in this box […] Read more

Morgan Taylor Perfect Landing | Sweetheart Squadron Collection

Here’s another polish from the Sweetheart Squadron collection. This is Morgan Taylor Perfect Landing. It’s a coral creme. It’s darker than Up In The Air-Heart, but has the same sort of tone. I think they’d look good gradiented together. This is another fabulous colour. It’s quite muted and understated for a coral, but I think […] Read more

Coral Reef Nails | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

I decided to use some images from the Bundle Monster Sun Kissed stamping plate collection to create an underwater scene. Firstly, I painted the gradient background using Barry M Cotton, Barry M Sugar […] Read more

Coral, White and Negative Space Stripes | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

These coral, white and negative space stripes are for the coral and white theme for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group. My own prompt was negative space. I seem to have done so many negative space manicures recently, despite not really liking them. I don’t like how my nails are too stained for this […] Read more

Flowers using Bundle Monster Mosaic Glass Sheer Tints Gels

Bundle Monster has just released some sheer tinted gel polishes, called Mosaic Glass Sheer Tints. They are like the OPI sheer tints, but in gel polish format. This stamped floral manicure uses three of them: Sunny Disposition (yellow), Apricot Beauty (orange) and Peony Blush (pink). I started with a base of white gel polish, then […] Read more

Glitter placement: muti-coloured neon dots

I haven’t had time in the past couple of weeks to do my nails with anything more than plain colours. I’ve been busy with work, and my husband also had gastric flu for five days, which meant I was nurse-maiding quite a bit. I also got it, but only for 24 hours, about which I’m […] Read more

Coral: GOT Polish Challenge

I had about three or four old corals to choose from for this week’s Golden Oldie Thursday (GOT) Polish Challenge. I chose L’Oréal Dating Coral, which is a bright coral with a very subtle shimmer to it. I needed three coats for it to be opaque, but anyone less fussy than me might get away […] Read more
