Pink and Holo dots


Today I have a quick dotticure I did a couple of weeks ago, one of the first times I did my nails after hubs had been in hospital.

The post which almost wasn't....

The post which almost wasn't... these photos make this mani look so boring.  I almost didn't publish them.  Excuse the wrinkled index finger, this was done when I had a streaming cold and I had a sneezing fit before the top coat was dry...

Holy Grail blue holo a-england Tristam topped with Iconic Effect Northern Lights

Today I have a simple swatch, this was one of the colours I enjoyed whilst I had nubbins after filing off the points!

Nail Arcade Clear Laser Crystal Studs Review.


Today's post features a nail design I actually did for the Crumpet Nail Tarts Pick and Mix Challenge a couple of weeks ago, the three colour gradient prompt, with everything that's been going on (the reason for the impromptu break I have just taken) it's taken until now to post.

Unexpected break

Just a very short, quick post to explain the unexpected blogging break currently.

New Nail Shape (if you hate it, don't worry, it's already gone!)


Today's post is more to explain why I have got nubbins in the next few posts, than to show off a polish or any nail art.

This first picture was part of the going going gone stages, on the Friday when I filed my nails as part of the change in shape.  Slightly more rounded.  It felt a lot rounded actually as I am used to square.

Swatches of Beauty UK Great Blue Beyond and how I wore it.


Today I have a review of Beauty UK Great Blue Beyond plus some how I wore it photos.

Great Blue Beyond is from the Beauty UK core "Nails" collection, the collection boasts 22 glossy colours which wear amazingly well.  This blue shade has a fab shimmer running through it.

For the swatches below I have two coats of Great Blue Beyond, shown without top coat.

Crumpets Nail Tarts 52 week challenge Teal / Two Colour Gradient.


Today is my first post for a mammoth 52 week challenge by the Crumpet's Nail Tarts group.  The 52 week pick and mix challenge replaces the old TriPolish Tuesdays and Golden Oldie Thurdays with a series of prompts which are a colour and a theme / technique and you can do one of them or combine them both.  This week is Two Colour Gradient / Teal.  Being clever I decided to combine both, then realised I used Turquoise instead of Teal. Oh well, close enough!!
