Freckles Polish Swatches and Review (plus my very own collaboration polish!)

Provided for review*

Hello everyone! Long time no see! I must apologise for being such a terrible blogger, life has completely got on top of me and I have barely had the time or energy to even do my nails recently.

However I did receive four lovely polishes for review from Freckles Polish, including my very own collaboration polish which I am very excited about - so I just had to blog about them. I have two polishes from The Collaboration Collection (including my own) and two polishes from The Birthday Party Collection to show you, which are celebrating one wonderful year of Freckles Polish!

52 Week Challenge: Geometric & Blue, Yellow & Green (Plus a Born Pretty Store Review).

Provided for review*

Hello loves! How are we all? 

I've managed to get together something for this week's 52 Week Challenge today, and I've combined it with a review for plate BP-L004 from Born Pretty Store. The themes this week are geometric and blue, yellow and green. I knew immediately when I saw this plate that I would be using it for this, as it has some lovely geometric images. I decided to leave out the yellow and green in the end and just went for a blue manicure.

Pick A Polish: China Glaze - Mimosas Before Manis

Hello loves. So I've been a very bad blogger lately! I apologise for being so absent, I've had a lot going on at home and my nails have taken a bit of a back seat. I'm hoping to slowly ease myself back into things, but I'm not going to pressure myself to post too much at the moment. 

Anyway, I have managed to put together a Pick A Polish for you today and this week I will be showing you China Glaze - Mimosas Before Manis. I've had this polish since it was first released, but I haven't had a whole lot of use out of it to be honest. It is lovely though so I was glad to give it another go.

52 Week Pick & Mix Challenge: Fishbraid/Non Glitter Topper

Hello lovely ladies. It's the weekend!!! I'm off out with the girls tonight which I am looking forward to :). 

I'm a bit late with this week's 52 Week Challenge, I usually post them on a Tuesday but I'm just sneaking it in before the deadline! I have to admit I struggled with this theme, I did three different manicures before I had one I was happy with - hence why I'm a bit late. In the end though, I was very happy with the outcome.

Freckles Polish New Releases - Swatches & Review

Provided for review*

Hello lovely people! I hope you all have wonderful weekend's planned. I'm off out with the girls tonight which I am looking forward to!

Today I have some exciting new polishes from Freckles Polish to show you. Freckles Polish has to be one of my all time favourite indie brands - I don't think I've ever been disappointed with a polish by this brand - so I nearly peed with excitement when I was asked if I would like to swatch some of their new releases (a nice image, I know). There will be two brand spanking new collections released on 30th January and I have two polishes from each, plus a matte topcoat to show you.

A2Z: K is for Kitschy.

Hi everyone. It's nearly Friday! I am quite looking forward to my weekend now :). 

This week for A2Z we had a choice between 'kitchen sink' and 'kitschy'... I decided to go for kitschy on this one. I'm not 100% sure I've quite got kitschy down to a tee, but I tried!

Pick A Polish: Zoya - Margo

Hello loves. Happy Monday!

This week for Pick A Polish I'll be showing you Zoya - Margo. This is a fairly recent addition to my stash, and I have used it a few times since I've bought it. It is a lovely autumn/winter colour so I'm going to make the most of it before before spring.

A2Z - J is for Jewel

Hello loves. Sorry I have been a bit absent this week - I've had a lot going on at home lately and my nails/blog have been the last thing on my mind quite honestly. 

I did however manage to get this week's A2Z manicure done - even if it is a couple of days late. This week we're on J which is for jewel. I was torn between doing a manicure using jewel toned colours, or just covering my nails in rhinestones (since they're close enough to jewels right?!). In the end I settled on the rhinestone option, as I felt like something a bit over the top!

52 Week Pick & Mix Challenge: Film & Holo

Hello loves. How are we all? 

This week for the 52 Week Challenge the themes are film and holo. This is the first week in this challenge that I haven't combined both of the themes... I have to be quite honest I don't watch that many films so I always struggle when film themes come up in challenges. But the beauty of this challenge is that it is flexible, so I just went for the holo side of things.

Pick A Polish: Models Own - Ibiza Mix

Hello loves. Happy Monday! Sorry I haven't posted for a few days - life got in the way! 

For Pick A Polish this week I'll be showing you Models Own - Ibiza Mix. This was one of my first ever glitters, which I bought when I was first starting to get into nails. So this one has had a fair bit of use in the past, but has been neglected recently... until today!

52 Week Pick & Mix Challenge: Pink, Aqua & Dotting Tools.

Hello my loves. How are we all? I've had a bit of an odd day today, the electricity went off at work so I got sent home early - so not very productive!

I've got this week's 52 Week Challenge post for you today, this week the themes are pink, aqua and dotting tools. This one was fairly straight forward... a pink and aqua dotticure.

Monday means Pick A Polish and this week I will be showing you Tara's Talons - Cherry Blossom. I got this from one of Tara's spring collections last year and I have used it a few times since, which is quite rare for me!

MoYou Nails Review - Plate 115

Provided for review*
Hi everyone. Happy Saturday! 

I have my final review for MoYou Nails to show you today. It feel's like I've been reviewing these plates forever haha - but I have really enjoyed trying them all. I would definitely vouch for the quality of their plates, I haven't really had many issues with them. So the final plate I have to show you is plate 115 and to be quite honest, I wasn't sure how I was going to use this. Hence why I left it to last! However once I got going, I really liked it.

2014 Round Up - My Favourites

Hello everyone. HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I had a lovely time with friends celebrating the new year last night, but I am starting 2015 feeling rather worse for wear haha! 

As promised I have a round up of my personal favourite posts from 2014 (I did my most popular posts yesterday which you can see here). At first I was going to show you five, then it grew to ten... and it ended up at thirteen because I am so bloody indecisive! But a few extra pictures of nails never hurt anyone right?!
