Silver and Purple Double Ruffian Nails | Twinsie Tuesday

For Twinsie Tuesday we’re all doing ruffian nails. I am surprised, but I have never done ruffians before. I started with a simple look, but then decided to add to it, and so I have some double ruffian nails. I started with OPI This Gown Needs A Crown, then added another polish from the same […] Read more

Lilac, Violet and Purple Chevrons (52 Week Challenge)

I have some lilac, violet and purple chevrons for this week in the 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge. Violet is one of the prompts, and the other is waterfall. I tried twice to create waterfall nails, and they were terrible both times. So this is the third manicure for this challenge. I don’t know […] Read more

Red, Blue and Purple Water Marble (52 Week Challenge)

I’ve combined the two 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge prompts this week, for a red, blue and purple water marble manicure. I used Nella Milano polishes, which water marbled really well. They spread easily in the water and didn’t split or disperse when I dragged through them. I used The Rubinator (red), True Blue […] Read more

Bundle Monster Ain’t No Basic B!tch Speed Gel Collection

Bundle Monster has a new gel polish collection out, called Ain’t No Basic B!tch. They are “speed gels”, which is Bundle Monster’s term for one-step gel polish. They don’t need a base or top coat, just two coats of the gel polish itself, and you don’t need to wipe off the sticky layer either (because […] Read more

Purple and Lilac Chevrons (52 Week Challenge)

This 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge calls for either a tape mani or a green manicure. I am not at all keen on green, so this was a no-brainer of a choice for me. I’ve created a purple and lilac chevrons manicure. The lilac is Revlon Provence. Provence in France is famous for its […] Read more

Leadlight Pebble Skittle with Bundle Monster Mosaic Glass Sheer Tints

I previously posted some nails using some of the Bundle Monster Mosaic Glass Sheer Tint gel polishes. And I’ve used them a different way today to create a pebble skittle manicure, using the leadlight technique. Starting with two coats of Gelish Black Shadow and a gel top coat, I then removed the sticky layer and […] Read more

Swirl Water Marble featuring Nella Milano Lady Lavender

Every week, I showcase a Nella Milano polish that is on offer at half price on the Nella Milano website. Instead of a plain swatch this week though, I thought I’d do some nail art. So I have some swirl water marble nails to go with Nella Milano Lady Lavender. Lady Lavender is a delicate […] Read more

Roses: Lilac and Teal (52 Week Challenge)

I’m late with last week’s 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge. The prompts were lilac and teal or pastels. I was already wearing Bundle Monster Voodoo Lounge with some stamping. I removed the stamping and added some roses in lilac and teal. It’s not my favourite manicure ever.  I did it quite quickly and the […] Read more

Bundle Monster Voodoo Lounge with white floral stamping using BM-XL07

I am wearing another Bundle Monster gel polish today. This is my favourite from the Sands of Aruba collection, a light purple (or dark lilac) called Voodoo Lounge. I painted three coats. I think I could have left it at two coats, but I could see a tiny bit of light coming through when I […] Read more
