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

Brush stroke metallics skittle (52 Week Challenge)

This week’s 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge is either brush stroke or favourite brand. Having not done a brush stroke manicure before, that was my immediate choice. I wasn’t sure how – or if – it differed from a distressed manicure, so I had a quick search to find out more. In searching, I […] Read more

Stencilled black stripes on beige and a giveaway

I usually do stripes using nail vinyls, but these nails were done using smART nails stencils. They work in exactly the same way, but perhaps are a little better for those who aren’t so confident with evenly spacing vinyls as these are spaced out for you. The base is 3 coats of Revlon Bare Bones, […] Read more

Red, black and white: stripes and glitter

A while back, someone was asking in a Facebook group what to do on their nails and I suggested red, black and white stripes. Someone else remarked that they could imagine that on my nails. And I agreed – I guess I’d suggested something that was very “me” – so, I chose to paint it […] Read more

Roses and Polka Dots: Inspired by Little Tip Off: April Polish Party

The prompt for this month’s Polish Party is “inspired by another Polish Party member”. It’s been suggested for quite a few months now, but hasn’t won in our vote, so it’s good that it’s finally come around. There are so many talented nail artists to choose from, and I spent ages going through all the […] Read more

Revlon Lilac Pastelle: GOT Polish Challenge: Pastel

And so the second round of the Golden Oldie Thursday (GOT) Polish Challenge gets underway, and the first theme is pastel. I have only a handful of old pastels and Revlon Lilac Pastelle seemed to jump out at me, calling to be used. Inspired by an image on Pinterest (see below), I created an accent […] Read more

FingerFood’s Theme Weeks: St Patrick’s Day: Clover manicure

It’s St Patrick’s Day this time for the FingerFood’s Theme Buffet challenge. I took a leaf (ha ha) out of More Nail Polish‘s book, and used some real clover in my manicure. Sadly, I wasn’t lucky enough to find any four-leaf clover, so I’ve gone with a shamrock, a three-leafed clover. The clover nails are […] Read more

Polish Party February: Chevrons: cream, peach and gold chevron French tips

In this month’s Polish Party challenge we’re doing chevrons. I usually do three-coloured chevrons, splitting my nails equally into three. I have even done some as the latest manicure I did, for the GOT Polish challenge.  So, I thought I’d try something a little different and try some chevron French tips. Firstly, I applied my […] Read more

FingerFood’s Theme Weeks: Abstract: Using Revlon Polishes

I didn’t know where to start for the abstract theme for this week’s FingerFood’s Theme Weeks challenge. So I did what I always do when faced with something I’m not sure about … I Googled! I looked up abstract art and found a nice abstract painting to use as my inspiration. I was going to […] Read more
