November N.A.I.L – Feathers

November N.A.I.L – Feathers

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!

Wishlist Wednesday: Despicable Me 2 Polishes!

Wishlist Wednesday: Despicable Me 2 Polishes!

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

During my weekend-with-little-to-do-that-should-have-had-a-baby-shower-in-it (I mentioned it in this post.) I went through my Pinterest board Nail Inspiration and sought out designs that I wanted to have a go at. This is one of them:

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:

Sunday Stash: October Purchases

Sunday Stash: October Purchases

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.
