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…

Life in Lacquer Nail Art Challenge: Blue

If you’re anything like me, you may find Monday makes you a bit blue. I’m totally pooped today from a busy weekend and I’m not quite sure what I’m doing with myself yet. Thankfully I have the Life in Lacquer Nail Art Challenge prompt for today to give me something to post about without needing to think too much!

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go Challenge Day 7: Primary

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go Challenge Day 7: Primary

I confess, I had to look this one up. It’s so long since I had to remember the difference between Primary, Secondary and whatever other colours that I wasn’t sure whether Primary was *just* red, blue and yellow, or whether or not green etc counted. They don’t, by the way. Primary colours are Red, Yellow and Blue.

Having catalogued my collection, I noticed that I often stick to the same set of colours most of the time. As part of this challenge I intend to use as many polishes as I can. Today I got in two untrieds. Yay!

My New Favourite Blue

My New Favourite Blue

Just before Christmas I became the proud owner of my very first Essie polish. The amazing Racho’s Nail Love posted this manicure featuring Butler Please and I was in love. She paid just £1.99 for it and I asked if she could find me one. She didn’t find one, but offered to send me hers as swap for the silver Glamour polish I picked up for her. So generous! Wow, wow, wow. This is the most perfect blue EVER.

Wishlist Wednesday: Essie Encrusted Treasure Collection

Wishlist Wednesday: Essie Encrusted Treasure Collection

Whilst searching Nail Polish Direct for W7 polishes on December 1st, I discovered the Essie Encrusted Treasure Collection. Oh the sparkle! Oh the pretty! I looked at them and decided that at £7.99 each, they were lovely but out of my reach. I bought my W7 polishes and thought about them no more.

Then Cutepolish posted her EPIC Christmas giveaway which includes this entire set, and now I seem to come across them everywhere. Dear Santa, all I want for Christmas is this collection!
