Rainbow Day: Born Pretty Store Stickers

As I sit in my office, the rain is hammering down on the roof. It has been glorious sunshine for a few weeks and of course Glastonbury starts today, so we’re due rain. What better a day to break out these gorgeous cheerful stickers from Born Pretty Store and bring the sunshine back!

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.

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go Challenge Day 3: Warm vs. Cool

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go Challenge Day 3: Warm vs. Cool

EDIT: Please vote for these nails in Grazia’s Manicure Monday competition!

This prompt had me stumped for ages. Someone in the Polish Passionistas group posted this image of what Warm vs. Cool means – essentially warm colours are pink/red through to yellow, and cold colours are yellow/green through to violet. This did not help me much. If I ever have to do this prompt again I will be totally stuck because this was all I could think of!

November N.A.I.L – Movember Moustaches #1

November N.A.I.L – Movember Moustaches #1

Before my No-Buy-November started I got one last little sneaky purchase in – it was a set of moustache decals. They were so cute and just begging to be used for Movember manicures. I largely decided to join in with November N.A.I.L because it was an ideal excuse to create Movember nails – not that I needed an excuse, that is.
