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!

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?!
