31 Day Challenge 2015 Day 1: Red

Traditionally the 31 Day Challenge happens in September – this is when everyone else did it. I too did it, after a fashion. I more or less kept up with the actual nail designing from day to day – I just didn’t manage to post any blogs on the subject. I’ve done too much lovely work to hide it all away though, so as of today I’m having my only little 31DC2015. I hope you don’t mind!

Models Own Sweet Shop: (French) Pear Drops

Models Own Sweet Shop: (French) Pear Drops

When Models Own latest range came out at the end of July, I was right in there – I am a huge fan of the Fruit Pastel collection of scented polishes, and the idea of traditional sweet scents sounded fantastic! I picked up all 5 of the Sweet Shop collection… and then they sat in my room while I didn’t manage to find any time to paint my nails. Slowly but surely I’ve been working on a little set of designs that showcases each of their special features, and I’ll be posting one every day this week! Better late than never, right?

I’m starting off with Pear Drops:

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: Geometric

I’ve been meaning to get on board with Life in Lacquer’s July Nail Art Challenge for the last few weeks but I’ve been busy with other projects and haven’t managed to get any of the prompts together. As it happens, today I’m cheating. This is a sneak peek of something which should be coming up next week – a tutorial!

Faster Than A Speeding Bullet

Just a quick post from me tonight – I’ve had a chance to edit and watermark a lot of photos this afternoon and some of these manicures have been sitting in my edit pile, sorry and unloved for a very long time! I originally did these nails for the Texture day of The Neverending Pile Challenge, which was waaay back on 12th May. I sure missed that boat!

Bargain Alert: Sally Hansen Sugar Coat at Poundland

Bargain Alert: Sally Hansen Sugar Coat at Poundland

I find it more or less impossible to walk past a Poundland without popping in. They so often have such awesome stuff in – if you don’t mind being a bit behind the fashion curve then you can pick up some very cool polish for a fraction of the original price. Way back in September when I was a fledgling blogger I picked up 6 OPI Shatter polishes. I’ll admit, they’re not so useful all the time but my latest find is something I’ve wistfully gazed at on multiple occasions on other blogs: Sugar Coat by Sally Hansen. When I found out these were in Poundland, I was right in there, buying up every colour I could get my hands on!
