Cartoon sparkle party nails

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

(Unintentionally) festive plaid

(Unintentionally) festive plaid

When I painted these nails (back in November! eep!) I was just picking colours that I thought looked good together; but I got a lot of comments about how festive they were. I suppose they do draw on the red, green and gold Christmas palette but personally I think they’d work for any time of … Continue reading

More Born Pretty Store goodies on show in this American-influenced manicure which I thought was particularly cute! I used four different polishes in this manicure. The purple nails are a base of Nails Inc St John’s Wood (a medium periwinkle kind of purple-blue), over which I sponged Urban Outfitters Crowded (pale lilac) to get this … Continue reading

For this manicure I broke out the L’Oreal Color Riche Confetti topcoat again – my lovely black and white glitter. I still think it looks ace. I’ve been reading good things about the Maybelline black and white glitter as well – it’s cheaper than the L’Oreal and comes in a bigger bottle – and it … Continue reading

Purple and yellow stripes

Purple and yellow stripes

Making the effort to move away from the coral and teal I seem to be obsessed with lately, I tried to pick two of the lesser-used colours in my nail varnish collection: purple and yellow. This was the result. I used the lightest yellow as a base and then just used a small nail art … Continue reading

Another quick post of a springy manicure I dashed off the other day – I am happy with it all apart from the glittery accent nail, which is A-England’s She Walks in Beauty. It’s a lovely polish (you can see a better picture of it here) but I am not sure it goes with the … Continue reading

OH NO NOT MORE TEAL AND CORAL. … OH YES! I had been wanting to try the ikat trend for ages and when I wanted a quick manicure the other day it seemed just the ticket. This is (you almost don’t need telling by now) a base of Topshop Pool Party (as seen here, here … Continue reading

It’s been ages since I posted so here’s one of the manicures I’ve had waiting to write about for a while – this was actually my Valentine’s manicure. I saw a lovely lips print on Chalkboard Nails a while ago and this is my much-less-sophisticated version. The base colour is Urban Outfitters Crowded which is … Continue reading

Holographic hibiscus

First off I am sorry for this ugly picture of what was actually a really pretty manicure! For some reason I was so busy all the days I had this on my hands that I didn’t manage to take a picture in natural light – so the colours are off, it’s a little bit blurry … Continue reading

Although I thought my stripy glitter nails were disco-chic, while I was wearing them I saw a few different friends who I’d not met up with for a while and two separate people told me off for having boring nail art! They like to follow my blog and they wanted something a bit more complicated… … Continue reading
