Grungy Chic Skittlette

Grungy Chic Skittlette

I’m rounding out the month with another design I’ve worn a couple of times in the last week – I met up with a dear friend of mine lately and wanted to look nice! He didn’t notice my nails, as it happens. That’s not really his thing. But I was pleased that I did them and I really like this design.

March Gig Nails: Red and White Polka Dots

March Gig Nails: Red and White Polka Dots

This is a typically picture heavy post for a set of gig nails. I can’t help showing them off! Since I started using adhesive tabs to stick false nails on rather than glue, I’ve been wearing falsies more often. This particular set of nails has seen quite a few uses – two gigs and a wedding! This is a very simple design by my standards, but I wanted to match this gorgeous dress that I’ve had lots of excuse to wear this month.

Thermal. Or Not.

Thermal. Or Not.

When I discovered a thermal polish at Poundland I was SO excited. I really, really want a thermal polish – along with jelly and glow in the dark polishes they seem to be the preserve of indie brands and are thus (justifiably) expensive. Thermal polish for £1? What a coup! I rifled through the three or so different colours and settled on a beautiful purple colour.

Bargain Alert: Sally Hansen Sugar Coat at Poundland

Bargain Alert: Sally Hansen Sugar Coat at Poundland

I find it more or less impossible to walk past a Poundland without popping in. They so often have such awesome stuff in – if you don’t mind being a bit behind the fashion curve then you can pick up some very cool polish for a fraction of the original price. Way back in September when I was a fledgling blogger I picked up 6 OPI Shatter polishes. I’ll admit, they’re not so useful all the time but my latest find is something I’ve wistfully gazed at on multiple occasions on other blogs: Sugar Coat by Sally Hansen. When I found out these were in Poundland, I was right in there, buying up every colour I could get my hands on!

Spring is Sprung!

Spring is Sprung!

I’ve been trying to keep my polish purchases down lately, but when an email from Nails Inc landed in my inbox about a special offer on spring collection boxsets, I couldn’t help myself. The email listed three special collections of spring colours – 8 full size polishes for £20. I felt instantly head-over-heels for the Heatwave selection.

Fun With Striping Tape and Pearls

Wow, are we really half way through March already? I’ve been busy putting together a small business so I haven’t had a lot of time for blogging lately. 😦 However, I’ve still got time for nails. There is always time for nails.
