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

Blue Distressed Nails (52 Week Challenge)

I’ve cheated a little here. These nails are for last week’s “distressed and/or grey” prompt in the 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge. The challenge finished last Sunday, and although each prompt lasts a week, I aim to post mine on the Sunday each time. But I had flu, so couldn’t do anything much more […] Read more

Diagonal Stripes: Three Blues (52 Week Challenge)

For this week in the 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge the choices are domestic animals or three shades of blue. I didn’t fancy putting cats or dogs or rabbits on my nails, so went with the three blues prompt. I’ve done some diagonal stripes. Diagonal isn’t a very common thing for me. I’ve created […] Read more

It’s Migraine Awareness Week this week in the UK, and there’s a series of events being held by The Migraine Trust to encourage more people to find out more about migraine.

Navy, silver and blue fishtail

The theme in today’s FingerFood’s Theme Buffet challenge is fishtail. Now to some people, fishtail means a braided pattern, and to others it means a curved chevron French tip sort of design. I’ve gone with the latter (as it’s easier – ha ha), but I have done braided nails before. I started with a base […] Read more

GOT Polish Challenge: Skittle: Turquoise and Navy Skittlette

For this week’s theme in the Golden Oldie Thursday (GOT) Polish Challenge I’ve done a turquoise and navy skittle. I’ve used two old Ciate polishes that came with their 2012 advent calendar: Headliner, which is turquoise, and Power Dressing, which is navy. I love both these colours. I’ve teamed them with white and used a […] Read more

January’s Polish Party: January Blues: blue roses

I joined a group on Twitter who have a Polish Party once a month. We all do nail art to a theme and this time around we’re doing January Blues. I’ve done quite a lot of blue manicures recently – good thing it’s my favourite colour! I decided to be cheery about my “blues” and […] Read more
