China Glaze My Little Pony Rainbows

Hey everyone! Another busy weekend down, only 2 weeks until we move and we're in Berlin next weekend so we've got lots to do and not much time to do it in, so as you can imagine it's pretty hectic at the moment. Nevertheless, I did manage to throw in a bit of time to play around with the amazing new China Glaze - My Little Pony collection*. Have you seen it yet? I think it may be my favourite China Glaze collection ever, or at least for a few years. There are tonnes of pastels, but also a great mix of glitters too, which works really well together, and it definitely suits the theme. I'll be having more of a play around once I've moved, but for now I thought these rainbow nails inspired by Tiny Brushes were pretty fitting for the collection.

Nails on Tour: Ibiza Long Weekend

Hey everyone!  It's been a while since I did a 'nails on tour' post, but as I mentioned in my last post I recently went to Ibiza and I decided to show my nails on tour once again. I did actually take the photos to do a post like this when I went travelling in April, but have never got round to it and now I think it's maybe too late. Let me know if you think I should still post them, I went to 7 different countries in 2 weeks so there's a lot of content! Anyway, here's my long weekend in Ibiza:

Negative Space Ferns

Hey everyone! If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen that I was in Ibiza a couple of weeks ago. I went for a long weekend with my boyfriend and another couple, and of course I had to do some nails to mark the occasion. I had a flick through Pinterest the night before I went (leaving it to the last minute as always) and I came across these nails and knew instantly they'd be perfect for Ibiza. I decided to recreate them with a light pink background, and a simpler version of the ferns because I was a bit pushed for time! 

More details on how I created these below, and tomorrow I'll be doing a post about my 'nails on tour', if you haven't seen these posts before you can catch up here

Lilac Negative Space Flowers

Hey everyone! It's been a while since I last posted as I've been away to Ibiza (post coming soon with my holiday nails) and we've also been evicted from our house out of the blue for no reason! Having to move house for the third time in 2 years definitely wasn't in my plans, especially when we haven't been given a reason why. It's been very stressful, so as you can imagine it's been hard to find the motivation to post. However, we're feeling hopeful that we might have something sorted, although I don't want to jinx it, so I thought it was time for a post. 

Today's nails are using the OPI Fiji Collection* again, this is definitely my favourite OPI collection in a long while, I just can't get enough of it. There's such a great range of colours and so many options for nail art. If you missed my last look you can see it here. I couldn't resist creating some more florals with the collection, although these are slightly simpler than the last!

Essie Block Colours

Hey everyone! I'm back this week with some nails that are a bit simpler than those I posted last week. I often really struggle to simplify designs, I always want to add more and more but when I'm in a rush I sometimes have to fight against myself and let the designs remain simple. I was playing around with the Essie Resort 2017 Collection*, and I thought the colours would work well in a block manicure. It's been so long since I used tape for a manicure, but I love block manis like this, I used to do loads of them 'back in the day' so it's nice to bring it back.

A Winning Combination

Hey everyone! Happy Monday. It's taking me forever to write this post tonight because I'm catching up on Doctor Who, so forgive me if there are any random words in here that are definitely because I'm distracted! I've been loving playing around with the OPI Fiji Collection* recently, I think it's my favourite OPI collection for a long time, there are so many potentials for designs because there are so many great colours. I've done a couple of designs with them already, but this one is by far my favourite. I feel like grey and yellow is always a winning combination, it's the theme of my living room, and I'd have it as the theme of my entire house if my boyfriend would allow it. But for now I'll just have to settle for grey sofas and yellow cushions ... and grey and yellow nails of course!

Soft Scoop - Meebox April '17 Nail Art + Review

Hey everyone! Here's the second of the two Meebox reviews I promised you. This one is slightly more delayed than the last, especially as this was actually technically April's box, but nevertheless it still had some gorgeous polishes in that I wanted to showcase for you, albeit slightly later than I would have liked. April's Soft Scoop Box* included £42.98 worth of products, which is a bargain when the box is only £20 (or even less if you sign up for a few months). What I love about Meebox is that it pushes me to try out brands I wouldn't usually, or who I've never even heard of. This time it contained:

IZ Beauty - Baby Blue
Trust Fund - Do you Know Who Your Father Is 
Model's Own - Banana Split
Zoya - Matte Top Coat
Whats Up Nails Decals 
Whats Up Nails Confetti

I like to set myself the challenge of trying to use all the products from the box, but unfortunately I couldn't decide on a design that showcased the confetti, but otherwise all the products are included in the nail art.
