MoYou Nails Review

Provided for review*

Hello my lovelies. I hope you are all having a nice weekend so far. I am currently waiting for the postman to bring me some nail mail!

I have some lovely stamping goodies from MoYou Nails to show you today. Now I am a newbie when it comes to stamping, I've read a lot about it but I have only tried it a handful of times so I was excited to give it another try. I figured that if a beginner like me can create a nice manicure using these products then anyone can! I was sent two image plates, a stamper, a scraper and a polish.

Born Pretty Store - Floral Nail Wraps Review

Provided for review*
Hello lovelies. It's nearly Friday, woo!

Today I have some floral nail wraps from Born Pretty Store to show you. This is my first experience with nail wraps, I normally find creating my own designs quite rewarding so have never really been drawn to them before. But when given the opportunity to review them I figured I should try something new and give them a go.

Pick A Polish: An Unnamed Color Club!

Hello lovelies. I hope you are all well. I am a bit burnt after over indulging in the sun this weekend :).

Today I shall be showing you this week's Pick A Polish manicure. This week it was a pink Unnamed Color Club which was chosen. I got this in a french manicure set a while ago and it's sat in my helmer since then.. I'm not really much of a french manicure person.

Matte Dotticure

Hello my lacquered loves! I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. 

I have more matte nails today, I seem to be on a bit of a matte kick lately.. which is weird because I don't usually like it that much! I really loved using OPI - Love.Angel.Music.Baby in my turquoise stone so I wanted to use it again, so that is what I have to show you today.

Matte Flakie Yumminess with Color Club - The Uptown

Hi everyone. Happy Friday! I am very glad it's the weekend, I have been struggling with my early mornings this week!

I recently snapped up a bottle of Color Club - The Uptown from a Facebook sale group as I have wanted that polish since it was first released. I don't own many flakie polishes so I was very excited to play with this when it arrived. I saw a picture of someone on instagram (for the life of me I cannot remember who it was) who had mattified their flakies which just blew me away.. so I got my matte topcoat straight out and got to work :).

Isn't it a beauty?! Read on after the jump for more.

Turquoise Studs

Today I have a manicure using some really pretty studs I bought recently from Born Pretty Store. I really love the look of turquoise stones so when I saw these online I snapped them up straight away and used them as soon as I received them.

May Tri Polish Challenge - Purple, Red and Green.

Hello beauties. I didn't sleep very well last night so I'm still feeling tired, I'm glad to be home with my feet up :).

So it's time for the Tri Polish Challenge which means I had to force myself to use these three dreaded colours which I'm not loving this month. I'm determined to still post something every week though. I have to admit though I do prefer this week's look to last week's.

Tara's Talons Swatches

Hi my loves. Happy Saturday! My foot isn't as good as it was yesterday so I am going to spend this weekend at home resting :( I reckon a lot of nail painting will be involved.

Today I have some recent purchases of mine from Tara's Talons. Tara's Talons is one of the more established UK indie brands, but this is the first I have tried from this brand. But I am glad I finally got round to trying some.

My Very First Watermarble

Hello lovelies. It's FRIDAAAY! And my foot is starting to feel better so I am in a good mood this afternoon. I don't usually post on a Friday but I have so much to show you at the moment that I decided to post this today :).

I have something very exciting to show you today, something that I am immensely proud of.. I DID A WATER MARBLE!! Now if you have been following this blog for a while you may have noticed I have never posted anything about water marbling at all, this is because every time I have tried it previously it has ended in either tears or tantrums (or a combination of the two). However this time I had a little help in the form of an amazing book written by fellow blogger and nail art addict Tracey, which I will go into more detail about shortly.

Glitter Gradient Tutorial.

Hello lovely lacquer-heads! I hope you are all well. I'm still having foot troubles so I've been off work today to try and rest it, it still doesn't seem to be getting much better though :(.

I have my first ever tutorial to show you today.. I have been meaning to do a tutorial for ages and I have finally gotten around to it. I recently did a quick glitter gradient for a night out, and I posted a quick snap of it on a Facebook group the next day and initially I didn't plan to blog about it. However people seemed to really like it and a couple of people asked me how I did it so I decided why not get my bum in gear and do a tutorial for it :).

May Tri Polish Challenge: Red, Purple and Green

Hi loves. I'm feeling very tired at the moment I have had a very long day, I've been up since half 4 this morning. I need a nap lol.

Anyway, the beginning of a new month means new colours for the Tri Polish Challenge, this month they are red, purple and green. I have to say I'm not overly inspired by the colours this month, they kind of remind me of christmas. But I shall try my best to come up with some interesting designs to show you.

My Picks From Delush Polish Spring Awakening Collection.

Good morning ladies. Happy Saturday! I hope you all have wonderful plans for this three day weekend :). My foot is still swollen so I am trying to rest it up as I want to go out tonight :(.

Since trying Delush Polish for the first time a couple of months ago I have been itching to try more, I was so impressed with them last time! I decided to wait and see what spring offerings were brought out this year and I snapped a couple up as soon as the Spring Awakening collection was released :). So I shall be showing you my picks today.

Models Own Polish For Tans Swatches and Nail Art.

Hi everyone. I hope you are all well, one more day until the weekend! I have hurt my foot so I've been hobbling around all day, I'm looking forward to having the weekend off to rest it!

I have to be honest, I am not usually overwhelmed by Models Own collections. However when I saw their Polish For Tans collection I thought it looked awesome! So I snapped four of them up (I skipped the yellow because I'm not a neon yellow kinda gal) which I will be showing you today, along with some nail art.
