Black and Silver Sparkly Stars over Ciaté Boudoir: Had to Have It, Still Haven’t Worn It

I don’t feel I’ve done today’s Never-ending Pile challenge justice. The theme is “had to have it, still haven’t worn it” and I have loads of polishes that perfectly fit the brief that I could have used: Max Factor Fantasy Fire, KBShimmer Snow Way, OPI Ski Teal We Drop, A England Order Of The Garter, […] Read more

For today’s indie prompt in the Never-ending Pile challenge, I had so many polishes to choose from, and went with one I’ve been dying to wear, but just somehow haven’t got around to: Scofflaw This Must Be The Place.

I had three untried jelly polishes to choose from for today’s Never-ending Pile challenge. I went with OPI Excuse Moi!, which came from the Muppets collection that was released at Christmas 2011.

L’Oreal Mystic Blue and Essie On A Silver Platter

I wore this manicure back in the middle of February – for my birthday, as it happens. I started off just wearing L’Oréal Mystic Blue as it’s one of my favourite polishes. We were staying away for a few days – my birthday falls in half term week every year – and I’d been treated […] Read more

Aquarium manicure using Fake Tattoos

I was wearing Pacific, which is the blue-green ducochrome from the new Barry M Aquarium collection, and I was all ready to test out some nail tattoos that I had been sent by Fake Tattoos. I received two packs of tattoos, with various designs on them, including birds, fish, anchors, ice-creams, palm trees and boats. […] Read more
