Models Own Sweet Shop: Gumballs

Today is the turn of the pink polish of the Sweet Shop collection: Gumballs. Of all the five sweets represented, gumballs are the one that I never really liked. That said, the smell of this polish still makes my mouth water.

31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 11: Polka Dots

31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 11: Polka Dots

This is another design that I can’t take any credit for – I was browsing Pinterest for something interesting to do and I came across this pin. I liked the effect of white spots over a white background and the light shade of the base gradient.

Lily Allen Week: The Emanuel Ungaro Shirt and Leggings

Lily Allen Week: The Emanuel Ungaro Shirt and Leggings

Today I am mostly excited because Michelle Humphrey herself tweeted at me to say she liked my design yesterday! I’m such a fangirl of her designs that this was lovely! If you still have no idea why I’m posting about Lily Allen then start here. For the June edition of Glamour Magazine, cover starlet Lily Allen did a shoot in all kinds of crazy clothes and every day this week I’m posting a design based on something in that shoot. Now we’re into the latter half of the week I’m posting the complicated designs that took me aaages and look very effective (in my humble opinion).  Today I’ve gone all monochrome to match this strangely circus-like shirt and leggings combo by Emanuel Ungaro.

Life in Lacquer Nail Art Challenge: Inspired By Another Blogger

I haven’t managed to join in with all of the prompts in this challenge, but I really like this one! My favourite blogger is far and away Alice of One Nail To Rule Them All. I used a handful of her tutorials at the South West Blogger Meet to paint other people’s nails and now I’ve finally had a chance to do one for myself!

Inspired By: Scarf from The Real McCoy

Welcome to the second of my Inspired By posts from the South West Blog Social! This is the second item I picked up with a voucher from the goody bag. The lovely lady in The Real McCoy (whose name I have already shamefully forgotten) let me dig around in the basket full of scarves of all patterns, shape and sizes until I found one that yelled “take me home!” And I picked this one:

Throwback Tri-Polish Tuesday

Throwback Tri-Polish Tuesday

If you cast your mind back all the way to May, which was nearly a month ago already, the Tri-Polish Tuesday colours were Purple, Red and Green. I did three designs which I was chuffed to bits with, and not one of them made it onto the blog in time. May was just one of those months.

So instead, tonight you get all three of them!
