Glitter Spots

Today I want to talk about the Essie Concrete Glitters collection*, because I've totally fallen in love with it. I sat down to do some nail art with them and ended up doing three different designs because I felt so inspired by all the colours! 

This was the first design I did, and it was completely inspired by Betina Goldstein (who by the way is totally killing it at the moment!). I used all the colours from the collection except Stay Up Slate.

Christmas Holly Berries

Hey everyone! Happy Christmas Eve Eve, I thought it was about time I posted some Christmas nails. These mistletoe with red berries were inspired by a plate from Matalan (see below). I actually did these in early November but I felt embarrassed to post Christmas nails so early... so I took it to the other extreme and now I'm posting two days before Christmas, oops! 


I used OPI - My Vampire Is Buff as the base, and then a mix of greens to create the leaves. I used OPI - Big Apple Red, and then acrylic paint for the white and black detailing. Finished with Barry M - Matte topcoat. 


What do you think? Let me know in the comments.

Gelish Forever Fabulous Collection - Review + Swatches Part 1

Christmas really is the busiest time of the year isn't it? I feel like I've barely stopped recently, and I've got to go away with work this week so I've got even less time than usual.

 I've been so busy I haven't had the time to write up this review, even though I tried the products a few weeks ago, so I'm sorry for the delay in getting this out to you! 

The Gelish - Forever Fabulous collection* is a bumper collection of TWELVE new shades for winter.  There are some really great colours in this collection, and I've split it into two halves so you can see them all in more detail. This is Part 1, and Part 2 will be along shortly.

Dainty pink flowers

Hey everyone! Sorry for the radio silence recently, blogging had to take a bit of a back seat while we were having our kitchen fitted, but now it's sorted I'm back and I've got quite a lot coming up for you!

To start with I've got these simple pink flowers, These were just a quick design I did on a Sunday evening so that I'd have something to wear to work in the week and I really loved how they turned out.

Spotty Halves

Just a quick post today to show you these nails. These were super easy to create and were originally inspired by a tea light holder that can be seen on my Instagram

Burgundy Polka Flowers

I had the busiest weekend decorating half the house in readiness for new carpets today, and I'm so excited that they're finally in. That's it, I'm finally an adult because I'm excited about carpets, what have I become?

Today's nails are just a quick design using Barry M's Autumn 2018 Gelly Hi Shine collection, super simple but I love how they turned out.
