Stamping! And cats! And purple! Oh my!

How adorable are these nails? I feel like I’ve really hit my stamping groove this month!
Another quick post from me these evening – how fabulous is this gorgeously simple design using Barry M Cardamom?
Not got time to babble today – off to see Kate Bush this evening! Here are my orange nails.
So I decided that I had to give it a go. Since it was the 31 Day Challenge that started me blogging this time last year I couldn’t bear to not at least try to keep up with the challenge this year. We’ll see how I do!
Red nails. In true 31DC fashion, I’m not at all convinced by this design.
I buy SO much polish these days it’s embarrassing. I have to confess I rarely seem to get through them all and there are many, too many polishes sitting in a box because I haven’t got around to wearing them. And to top it off, I still have favourites. Despite having enough polish for a different colour every day ALL YEAR I still reach for the same ones when I’m refreshing my mani! So I thought I’d let you in on what has mostly been on my nails this month.
We don’t really have drugstores here in the UK, so I had to interpret this one a little bit. In this context, I’m figuring what the Americans call a drugstore we would call a pharmacy. A big one like Boots or Superdrug that sell all your toiletries as well as just prescription medication etc. This means to me cheap polish, or at least relatively inexpensive. So I’ve gone for Miss Sporty. I think I picked up these two polishes along with a third for £5. These are not at all expensive. Miss Sporty has a bit of a reputation for being a young person brand rather than a serious one for buying your make up from, but I got these colours because I was trying to match them to a dress at the time and these were the closest I could find. I have apparently used them once before but it was very subtle!
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*)
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.
