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

SensatioNail Gilded Glamour | Glitter Gel Polish with Cream

SensatioNail Gilded Glamour is one of seven new glitter gel polishes. I have three of the collection, and mine are all in a clear or very sheer base.

Pale pink gel nails with stamping and glitter

I think it’s probably because the glitter is more prominent on […] Read more

SensatioNail Blue Chrome Powder

Dusky pink gel with glitter

I loved these dusky pink gel with glitter nails. I’ve been using quite a lot of gel polish recently, as I’ve not  been having much time to paint nails every couple of days. I fancied something quite elegant, and took inspiration from this Celina Rydén manicure on Instagram. I used a gel polish by Y&S. I […] Read more
