The Neverending Pile Challenge: Jelly

I’m quite partial to Jelly polishes. I really love that squishy, yummy looking finish. That being said, I don’t own very many – it seems they’re generally only made by Indie brands and I can never find them or they’re hideously expensive! So I was pleasantly surprised when this one dropped through my door in a Tara’s Talons Treasure Trove box in January. This is Feeling Festive:

Tri-Polish Tuesday #2: Blue, Yellow & Pink

Another Tuesday, another inventive way to use three very bright colours. Today I have outdone myself:

The Neverending Pile Challenge: (Jack) Frost

The Neverending Pile Challenge: (Jack) Frost

I have a small confession to make regarding this post. When I saw the prompt I knew exactly which untried polish I was going for: Models Own Jack Frost. I’ve just never quite worked out what to do with it. I started with a gorgeous gradient involving two untrieds and one polish that has only been used once. I applied my shiny, shiny coat of Jack Frost, took my pictures… and then found out it isn’t untried. I have managed to use it twice, albeit not very prominently. After much deliberation, I decided to post it anyway – after all, this is still a Frost manicure with untrieds in, right? I haven’t totally missed the point?

The Neverending Pile Challenge: A Random Untried

Third prompt of the challenge, and another two indies to tick off my list. Today it is the turn of Tara’s Talons. I own 18 polishes by this lovely lady and yet few ever make it to the blog. This is ALL about to change. If you follow Tara you’ll have seen this design already – I sneakily entered it into her Birthday competition last week. (Which I didn’t win. *sadface*)

Review: Born Pretty Store Decals

Review: Born Pretty Store Decals

Welcome to my very first review! This post is long and picture heavy. I hope you’ll stay with me.

Now that my blog has been running for over 6 months and I post regularly and some of you seem to like it, I thought I’d try and get involved with some companies to review things. My first stop: Born Pretty Store. They were kind enough to offer me some of their decals for review, and I picked two designs – a fun Barbie themed set and a full sheet subway map.

The Neverending Pile Challenge: Pastel

I think a key theme of my untried collection may turn out to be Indies – I’m shocked at myself that I have these gorgeous handmade polishes that never seem to make it onto the blog! This polish isn’t technically an untried – as you’ll see later I’ve already used half of it! But I have never featured it here, and that’s my criteria for posting. *nods* I present to you – Nelly Polish.

Tri-Polish Tuesday: Blue, Yellow & Pink

Tri-Polish Tuesday: Blue, Yellow & Pink

I’ve been meaning to get around to doing one of these for months! I’m thanking my lucky stars I had a weekend all to myself and I filled it with nail art. It was great!

I’m very pleased with this. The point of Tri-Polish Tuesday is that you have three colours and you’re only allowed to use those, black and white, gold and silver and glitter toppers. The colours for April are Pink, Yellow and Blue. A bit close to primary colours for me and I struggled to think of a design for a while but then I figured I’d just go for a simple gradient. And somehow, three colours have become many!
