Pink dotty skittlette


This mani is a remake of a previous two fingers up to bullying mani which I'd done about a year beforehand.

ASP - Wow it's dry super fast top coat review and nail art.


This nail art was inspired by the ASP Wow It's Dry packaging.  I purchased the top coat myself, I think some of the polishes I used for the nail art were press samples, but it's been ages since I did this and I can't exactly remember the polishes I used!

Wow It's Dry hadn't been on my radar at all until I got a Scratch magazine and noticed an ad for it in there.  I hunted it down and bought this new bottle from eBay.  I think with postage I paid about £6 for it, it retails for £5.99 in Sallys.  Not sure if it's sold anywhere else.

Some thoughts on the Mentality situation and my own nail issues ( a very long and wordy post!)


Over the last few weeks and months, I have been out of the nail loop. I skim through Feedly, but haven't really bought any polishes in ages. I had totally missed all the stuff which has been going on with Mentality polishes causing lifting. In fact I only heard about this on Friday evening when I got an alert that a comment was waiting approval on an older post of mine where I had mentioned issues with lifting I had had last year and had shown some pictures of a Mentality polish.  I guess the person who commented had been Googling for info on it and found my post. I was straight on Google myself!

Erm this was a bit longer coming than planned!


My last post was about six weeks ago and I intended to post this a couple of days after that one, ooooopsie!

It's been a bigger gap than planned, but life happens.  I had six sets of photos edited and uploaded to Blogger, but never got around to the writing that goes along with them. I've been busy building garden furniture, enjoying time with hubs and generally not doing masses.  Over the past two months I've also started to work out more and my exercise time has taken over from my nail time, I've been painting my nails every four or five days rather than every evening.

Anyway here's the second post featuring Mod Lacquer neons.  I loved Stimulate, the orange, so much so that I've worn it several times.
