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

Violet Tweed | Berry Good Looking | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

These violet tweed nails are for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group. The theme is violet, and my personal prompt is houndstooth or tweed or plaid. There has been some discussion in our Facebook group about what shade of purple violet actually is. For myself, to be sure I was getting the right colour, […] Read more

Morgan Taylor Under The Stars with Mermaid Scales Stamping (52 Week Challenge)

Oops, I’m late again for the 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge … but only by a day. The prompts were navy and scales. I’ve combined them this week and have used Morgan Taylor Under The Stars, stamped with a mermaid scales design in silver. Morgan Taylor Under The Stars is a long time lemming […] Read more

Holo chevrons (52 Week Challenge)

The 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge choices this time around are film and holo. I didn’t have much time this week for nails, as I’ve had flu again. I’m never ill and yet I’ve had flu twice since Christmas. So, because of wasting three days of my life in bed this week, I kept […] Read more

Holographic Stars on Navy: I is for: Inspired

We’ve had a few weeks’ break for Christmas and New Year, but now the A2Z series challenge is back with the letter I, which is for inspired. I took my inspiration from a recent manicure by Nail Lacquer UK, where AJ punched out holographic butterflies and added them over black. I’ve done the same thing […] Read more

Revlon Midnight Stamped with Color Club Over The Moon: H is for: Holographic

You’d be forgiven for not realising that this week’s A2Z series challenge is all about holographic … because my camera and lightbox set-up means that I cannot capture holo. I could, of course, have photographed these nails in the sun, but it’s somewhere over Turks and Caicos, Haiti and Ottawa right now. I’ll add a […] Read more

SpaRitual First Snow

SpaRitual has released a new winter collection, called Snow Globe. It consists of three top coat polishes: Snow Globe, First Snow and Starry Winter Night. I received First Snow to review. It’s a clear polish, dense with holographic glitters, and with a sprinkling of tiny white square glitters. I love square glitters, and who doesn’t […] Read more
