Models Own Wonderland Collection Swatches: Part 1

So if you’re a follower of Models Own on Facebook (and you should be) you might have seen the announcement they made yesterday about their new Wonderland polishes! Well today I managed to pop into Boots and as disappointed as...

Strawberries!

These Strawberries were a request from one of the men at work. Honestly, it’s scary how much interest they have in them. I’ve seen quite a few posts around of strawberries and agreed that it would be cool to try...

Scion Flight Insipred Manicure

I’ve recently gone a little mad over Pinterest. This could be due to currently planning a wedding but I seem to be living on it, and one of my favourites things to find and look at are patterns. So I’ve...

Review: Look Nail Pop Plum

I really need to start posting more often. Wedding planning is taking over my life! Anyway, sorry for the delay but I should have quite a few posts for you over the next few days. I will start by saying...

I have been shopping!

As it was my birthday last week and some very kind people gave me some money as gifts, I decided to drag Jack to Westfields London on Saturday. I think I went a little over the top. I bought 29...

Sweets: Lollipops!

Sweets: Lollipops!

I had this idea for a manicure a few days ago, but I needed to get a few other posts done before I could think about doing it. So last night I finally sat down to do it! I started...

Fast Food Challenge: Fried Chicken Nails

1950s Challenge: Polka dot dresses!

I decided to paint little polka dot dress on my nails! Can’t you just imagine when swinging and swirling around with their giant petticoats and ankle socks! SO cute. I started by painting all my nails with a base of Angelica...

Superheroes Challenge: Wonder Woman

I was quite excited about this theme as I am such a huge fan of superhero films at the moment as SO many have recently been released. I was trying to think which superhero to choose, and I was swaying...

Fruit Challenge: Watermelon

Fruit Challenge: Watermelon

I’ve done a few fruit themed manicures before – Cherries and Strawberries – so I had to think a bit harder this time to come up with another fruity idea. So what do you think of my watermelons?! I started...

Flamingos

While trying to decide what to decorate my nails with for this theme, I scoured my stamping plates and thought about hand painting like birds in a cage, but when I started thinking about the more obscure birds and finally...

A Nail Tutorial

Today’s theme is ‘a nail tutorial’ so I have decided to create a tutorial about how to stamp. I realize that some of you may already know how to do this, but I know a couple of you have never...

Review: Revlon Parfumerie Wild Violets

If you’ve been shopping recently, you might have noticed a new section in the Revlon nail polish stand. Naturally I am drawn to any new displays, but these snazzy bottle lids and the word ‘Parfumerie’ over the top really got...

Sweets: M&Ms and Skittles

  I started this about what my favourite sweets and treats are and very quickly thought of M&Ms! I thought these would look great on my nails so decided to do one M&M per nail. I also thought it would...
