Models Own Sweet Shop: Liquorice Allsorts

Models Own Sweet Shop: Liquorice Allsorts

Liquorice Allsorts divide opinion. Either you like them, or you don’t. If you don’t like them, then this polish is definitely not for you. However, if you do, then you will LOVE the smell of Models Own Sweet Shop Liquorice Allsorts. It’s by far the strongest of the collection, and continues to smell for many, many hours after you’ve applied it. It’s also one of the thickest, gloopiest, bestest black polishes I’ve come across in a long while.

31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 12: Stripes

Happy Friday! I hope you all have a fun filled weekend ahead of you! (And that not too many of you have to work – I remember working weekends, and it wasn’t always fun.) Today is the Stripey day of the challenge, and instead of go overboard, I have kept it simple. This is also the introduction of Moyra to my blog. Blog, meet Moyra. Moyra, meet Blog.

Lily Allen Week: The Aquilano.Rimondi Bra and Skirt

Lily Allen Week: The Aquilano.Rimondi Bra and Skirt

Alas, today is Friday and we have come to the final design of Lily Allen week. Tomorrow I’ll post a quick round up of all 5 posts and then it will be over. Luckily, I’ve saved my absolute favourite til last. I was very ambitious with this design and it’s one of the most complex things I’ve ever done! I went freehand for this one, mostly – and wow, how did it come out?

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.

Lily Allen Week: Theyskens’ Theory Knit

Lily Allen Week: Theyskens’ Theory Knit

Thanks for all the great feedback on my post yesterday! It seems you are all loving the YSL and Coral Glaze beauty of my first Lily Allen Week design. If you missed yesterday’s explanation then here it is again: I’ve created five designs based on Lily Allen’s photo shoot for the June Glamour Magazine and I’ll be posting one every day this week. I started yesterday with a simple but effective Hypergel design based on a floaty Saint Laurent dress.

Today I have a more complex design for you, based on this slightly strange looking ensemble by Theyskens’ Theory.

These Are A Few… July Favourites

These Are A Few… July Favourites

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.
