I nearly forgot I had to post this! As it happens, I’m staying with friends in Cambridge this weekend – last night we celebrated Thanksgiving! So this will be a really quick post. The theme is feathers, and I did not have a lot of inspiration – but as a relatively new blogger, there are so many untapped iconic manicures I haven’t done. So I present you with…. peacock feathers!

I LOVE Despicable Me. When I get really stressed out, my partner sits me down in front of the TV and puts it on and I have a smile on my face within minutes. When I get a text message, my phone says “Bello!” like this. The connection between Despicable Me and nail art is obvious – I expect most of you have done minion nails at some point!
This week, Despicable Me 2 came out on DVD and Bluray. I was worried the sequel couldn’t be as good as the original, but the second instalment was just as awesome as the first. So in honour of the momentous occasion of getting to see it again (and again and again and again), I went looking for Despicable Me (themed) polishes. I could find only three, all of them Indies. They are Good Minion and Evil Minion by Polished Colors and It’s So Fluffy, I’m Gonna Die! by Dollish Polish. Read the rest of this entry
I missed this over the weekend! The British Nail Bloggers are doing a collaborative event – we’re all posting about our favourite polishes. Like many other bloggers, my favourite polishes change regularly but as of right now, these are the polishes I can’t get enough of:
Happy Monday! Well, I hope yours is happy, at least. Today I’ve got another “nail art idea for Models Own Velvet Goth colours.” I love these polishes so much!
I know a lot of bloggers post an archive of their stash, for interest or insurance or whatever reason. I don’t find lists all that helpful, because certain brands such as Nails Inc don’t really name their polishes anything helpful when it comes to working out what the colour is. So I figure I’d record my stash by taking pictures of my polishes and posting them in dribs and drabs and filing them under the tag “stash” so that you can just look through and see stuff. I also want to link to the posts that I’ve used polishes in so that I know I’m using them! Multi-purpose posting! (Please note this post will remain a work in progress.)
This post features most of the polishes I bought in October: Nelly Polish samples, a Primark boxset, Claire’s Accessories polishes and a Nails Inc lucky dip.
It has been altogether too long since we last saw a sock monkey on my blog. Today I designed some special nails for my monkey Alice.
I won a set of firework nails from the fabulous Polishious Nails on Twitter last month and instantly earmarked them for my band’s next gig (which happened at The Black Horse in Sidmouth on Saturday 16th November). I love my slightly gothic and glamourous stage alter ego and these were just perfect.
Firstly: my Movember nails are entered into Grazia’s Manicure Monday competition. Please take a second to vote for me! (MonkeyNailArt)
As part of my No-Buy November I’m determined to use as many of last months new polish purchases as possible. Today I’m featuring two of my Next purchases – Black Widow and Pink Fizz – as well as a matt top coat from George.
