Guest Post for Very Emily - Tribal Jelly

Hey everyone! Today I have a guest post over on my dear friend Emily's blog, which you can see here. It was about time I repaid her back for the guest posts she's done for me in the past, including this one that you saw a couple of weeks ago. Anyway, I'm not going to say anything about the nails because you can head over to Very Emily to see all the info there.

Tutorial Tuesday: Galaxy Hearts Nail Art for Divine Caroline

Hey everyone! I'm SO excited to show you these nails, I did them about 3 weeks ago and I've been waiting for them to go live on Divine Caroline so I could show you. I saw this design a few months ago and I just knew that I had to recreate it. I was entirely sure how to go about it and when I looked online I saw that there weren't any tutorials, so I decided to make one myself, and wing it along the way. For the full steps click HERE to go to Divine Caroline.

V Festival 2014 Nail Art for Avon

Hey everyone! This weekend in England has been 'V Festival', I'm not a festival kind of girl. I love music, but I'm not a fan of standing up for long periods of time, or getting muddy, or camping, so festivals are definitely not for me! Nevertheless, Avon asked me to do some nails in honour of V Fest, so of course I obliged. I did the logo on the thumb, along with the Virgin heart from the logo, and then I did musical notes on the other fingers. It was actually a lot quicker to do that I expected so if you like this look, even just with the musical notes, I promise it doesn't take too long to do!


Like an idiot I deleted my other photos, so this is the only one I have!

Nails on Tour

Hey everyone! So I've just (a week ago) got back from a wonderful holiday in Italy, which you may or may not know from a few of my previous posts. I decided whilst I was there that I wanted to do some holiday pictures on my blog, but I also wanted to include my nails, so I decided to take a photo (or two/three) a day with my nails to document what I did. I also wanted to document how well my nails fared. I was wearing Red Carpet Manicure - Red Carpet Reddy*, as I've been trying out gel manicures recently (post coming soon), and it fared brilliantly. I got a teeny chip on the side of my thumb on the last day (you'll see why below) but apart from that they were pretty much perfect until I took them off.

Sunset Nail Art for Avon

Hey everyone! Today is the last day of my holiday, it's weird writing this before my holiday has even begun but hopefully it's been a good week, both for me and for my blog! I've had a couple of great guest posts, and also posted a bit of nail art along the way, hopefully you've enjoyed it! To tide you over until I'm properly back here are some simple sunset nails I did for Avon, they're nothing special and the palm trees are a bit wonky, but I think the crooked look isn't TOO bad.

Guest Post from Very Emily: No Tools Nail Art

Hey everyone! Another guest post for you all today whilst I'm away, this time from my wonderful friend Emily, you've seen her nails here before and she was kind enough to agree to do another blogpost for me, and I absolutely love the design she's done! Anyway, I'll leave it up to Emily to tell you more about the design:

Hi everyone! I'm Emily from the blog Very Emily and I'm so honoured to be guest posting on One Nail To Rule Them All today. I absolutely adore Alice's work, I always look forward to seeing what she creates. I just love her nails and her amazing style. Her work is always flawless!


For my guest post I came up with a simple design using only three colours that requires no tools! On my pointer and pinkie I used a black polish, you can use any black you have lying around, I used Jessica Black Lustre. On my ring finger I layered a white polish, Essence Hattrick in this case, as a base.


Then I layered a blue colour on my middle finger, here I used Rimmel Blindfold Me Blue from the Rita Ora collection. On my ring finger I used a stippling technique similar to the dry brush method. You wipe off most of the polish from your brush and just randomly dab it on your nail to create a fun abstract print. I really love how simple it is!


Then I added some bling on all nails except for my ring finger! I used gold steel balls and placed them on one by one in a triangular line-up. I purchased mine from Born Pretty Store.

Feel free to stop by my blog over at Very Emily to see more nail art, swatches and reviews. Huge thanks to Alice for having me and I really hope you like these!

Thankyou so much to Emily for doing this for me, I absolutely love that ring finger!
