Nails on Show: South West Blog Social 2014

Nails on Show: South West Blog Social 2014

Warning: this post is VERY picture heavy!

When I heard that Jodie and Albertine were organising a blog social for the South West I was thrilled – I really enjoyed the social I went to last year. Alas, I was the only nail blogger at that event, so I contacted Jodie and asked if I could run a Nail Art Station. The idea was to bring along some polish and some bling and show people what our glorious little world is all about. I recruited help from She Sells Seashells, who sent me some fabulous supplies to play with, and Bita from B-Nails gave me a hefty discount on her fabulous wraps, for those less keen on making their own art. I brought along a decent selection of polishes and my own little trinkets and I set up next to deLush Cosmetics Studio, who were already busy doing Jodie’s make up when I arrived.

All the essentials: polish, brushes, striping tape, nail wheels, nail files, dried flowers…

The Neverending Pile Challenge: Use As Many Untrieds in One Mani As You Can

I’ve been looking forward to this challenge. For real, I’ve been thinking about what to do with this for weeks. How often do you pull out lots and lots of different polishes and just throw them all together in one random design? I almost can’t believe I’ve never done it before. This is one heck of a Kitchen Sink design!

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.
