Red with Diamond Glequins: M is for: Multi-coloured

We’re half way through the A2Z series challenge, so that means it’s M this week. And M is for multi-coloured. I’ve used some diamond shaped glequins that I bought from Born Pretty Store. I forgot I had these. They look very striking on the nail though, so I’ll be using them again! There are all […] Read more

Born Pretty Store BP-10 stamped over Zoya Claire

I received a stamper from Born Pretty Store to review and they very kindly threw in a plate too. I decided to test the plate and stamper over Zoya Claire. I had to have a polish called Claire, didn’t I? It’s not my favourite shade ever, but it’s still a nice rich burgundy, bordering on […] Read more

Gold, Red and Pink Foils Gradient (52 Week Challenge)

For this week’s 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge we’re supposed to do fishbraid or a non-glitter topper. So foils are a topper, right? Sort of. I think I’m stretching the theme here a bit!

Purple and Grey: L is for: Lines

It’s L for lines in this week’s A2Z series challenge. I like lines. In fact I’d go so far as to say I love lines, and stripes in particular. So, this was an easy and enjoyable challenge for me. I’ve painted some purple and grey stripes over white. Well, off white really; the base is […] Read more

Green Gradient with Stamping (52 Week Challenge)

I have had so much trouble with this week’s 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge. The theme is either fire or 3 greens or yellows. And the one that made it to posting – this manicure – is attempt number 5. I started off by doing some green, three colour stamping over a blue. It […] Read more

Orange, Blue and Cream: K is for: Kitchen Sink

This week in the A2Z series challenge it’s K, and that means Kitchen Sink. A kitchen sink manicure is where you use “everything but the kitchen sink”. So it’s a bit like a skittlette, only all the nails are different, and you use a different technique for each one. Usually though, there is some sort […] Read more
