Pastel glitter and silk

Pastel glitter and silk

Two new polishes on show in this springy pastel manicure. The teal is one of the new Barry M Silk range. It’s really unusual – like a matte satin polish with a metallic sheen. I just bought this colour, Meadow (because teal is my favourite¬†of course) but my Mum was lusting after these today so … Continue reading

Cartoon sparkle party nails

      These nails were just a combo of two of my favourite polishes and then some extra embellishments on top. The pale green is Nails Inc Hyde Park Corner which I’ve managed to use about half of already (very unusual when your collection of nail polishes is around the 150 mark) – it’s … Continue reading

Neon glitter gradient

Neon glitter gradient

So I saw on The Nailasaurus that Claire’s Accessories had revamped its polish range and popped in for a little look-see. Turned out that she was spot on and I left with three new polishes, all of which you can expect to see over the next few weeks. The neon pink glitter in this manicure … Continue reading

A favourite sweatshirt

A favourite sweatshirt

I asked for an ‘exciting’ sweatshirt for Christmas this year and I got it: this lovely one, as modelled by Jessica Alba. I’ve been wearing it loads (despite not looking like Jessica Alba) so I thought I might try out some nails to match. This uses a couple of the new Nails Inc polishes I … Continue reading

Trying for something a bit classy, I produced this pale pink and silver manicure. I think I succeeded! The pink base on the spatter nails is Nails Inc Fitzrovia, the dark metallic grey is China Glaze Jitterbug and the lighter silver is Barry M Silver Foil. The pink glitter is another of the Barry M … Continue reading

Red and gold snowflakes

This is the other Christmas manicure I’ll be uploading this year: very traditional colours, red and gold, and some stick-on snowflakes from Born Pretty Store (link on the right!) to boot. This manicure took me ages, not because it’s complicated but because I just couldn’t get something I was happy with. I put on and … Continue reading

I’ve been a bit behind on the blogging front lately (say, three months behind?!) as I’ve been working hard on my PhD – but don’t worry, I’ve been diligently documenting my manicures all the same. I have a bunch lined up to show you but I thought I would start (out of sequence) with a … Continue reading

Ain’t no party like a Green Room party

Ain’t no party like a Green Room party

These are possibly the funnest most party nails I have ever done!¬†Something about the combination of pink, teal, glitter and gems just screams ‘GOOD TIMES FOR EVERYBODY’! The beautiful glitter on my thumb, ring and pinkie fingers is (of course) Deborah Lippmann Candy Shop, brought back by my lovely parents from NYC. As before, I … Continue reading

Holoh me oh my

Wassup peeps? Here I am with another review of a lovely complimentary product sent to me by Born Pretty Store. This time I’m reviewing one of BPS’ own-brand nail polishes, in holographic teal. The polish comes in a small 6ml bottle (I’ve shown it next to a Barry M normal 10ml bottle for comparison). At … Continue reading

Sometimes you just gotta paint your nails the brightest colours you can find in your Helmer. That’s what I did in this manicure, a super-luminous neon gradient that I couldn’t stop showing off to everybody I saw. The purple is China Glaze Flying Dragon, the pink is China Glaze Pool Party, and the orange is … Continue reading
