Models Own Sweet Shop: Rhubarb and Custard

Models Own Sweet Shop: Rhubarb and Custard

When I first saw the bottles for Pear Drops and Rhubarb and Custard, I wondered why Models Own were releasing two colours so similar to each other. However, when you apply them, it becomes apparent that the two colours are very different. Whereas Pear Drops is an orange-red jelly with very fine glitter, Rhubarb and Custard is a deep red with textured grains of shiny glitter in it:

31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 9: Rainbow Nails

31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 9: Rainbow Nails

I feel like there aren’t really many things you can do with Rainbow as a theme. As such, I think I’ve used some artistic license here. But I like the results, whether or not you think they satisfy the Rainbow prompt…

My New Favourite Thing: Graffiti Polish

My New Favourite Thing: Graffiti Polish

I’m really not joking – I own several graffiti polishes now. I see one and I can’t help myself – I’ve have to have its… graffiti-ie goodness. When Maybelline brought out their Street Art collection I few months ago I bought all four. When I’m not sure what to wear on my nails, I reach for graffiti polish. It is the super-stylin’ way to liven up ANY design.

Yes, I did just say super-stylin’. I’m hip.

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!

The Neverending Pile Challenge: Drugstore

The Neverending Pile Challenge: Drugstore

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!

Happy Easter! Good Friday Nails

Happy Easter! Good Friday Nails

I’ve seen a lot of bunny and chick nails over the last few weeks, but these don’t really say Easter to me at all. Spring, sure, but Easter is about more than that! As a Christian, Easter for me is about the death of Jesus and his resurrection 3 days later. So I’ve got two sets of Easter nails to show you – one for today, Good Friday, when we commemorate Jesus being crucified, and then on Easter Sunday I’ve got “He is Risen” nails.
