Hi! Over on Instagram @polishedbyleanne is running a contest (it ends Friday, if you’re in the UK, go paint your nails now!) and all you have to do is a pink manicure. I thought I’d have a go, so here is my entry! This was fun to do! I started with a coat of Barry M Speedy Kiss Me Quick, and then sponged on a … Continue reading Pink mani contest entry
As you may know, Barry M extended their Speedy range recently, adding a few shimmer polishes. The moment I saw swatches of Supersonic, I knew that I had to have it, and I’ve finally got round to picking it up. Supersonic is a royal blue colour with lots of pink shimmer, so the polish changes from blue to purple depending on the light. As I … Continue reading Barry M Speedy Supersonic and Born Pretty Store BP-10
Good morning! Today’s nail art was inspired by the base polish, which I bought from another polish addict having a clear out. Freckles Polish Greek Islands is a white crelly base containing various blue glitters. It obviously takes its own inspiration from a Greek holiday – the whitewashed buildings with their blue roofs and doors, along with the blue sky and golden sun, and the … Continue reading Freckles Polish Greek Islands with a blue gradient
I’m a member of the UK Stamping Community on Facebook, and every two weeks we have a new theme to base manis on – this fortnight the theme is arabesque. I had to go and Google it, as I’d only heard the word in relation to ballet before! From Wikipedia: “The arabesque is a form of artistic decoration consisting of “surface decorations based on rhythmic linear patterns … Continue reading Arabesque nails using Born Pretty Store BP-17
My the last couple of manis have been quite dark, so I decided I needed a nice bright cheerful colour and hopefully encourage the sun out again. It worked for a day or two! I had a rummage through my helmer (I finally caved and bought one a month or so ago) and pulled out a bright neon pink from Nails Inc. Apologies in advance, … Continue reading Nails Inc Slone Street and Born Pretty Store BP-42
I haven’t posted much recently on my weight loss progress, mostly because well, there hasn’t been any! This year, things had been fine, the weight was coming off, I was feeling better and more energetic, and everything was peachy. Then at the start of July I came down with the flu. I spent two weeks feeling crap, shovelling sugar into myself (cough sweets, cough medicine, … Continue reading The 13% club
Hi! Today I have a gorgeous polish that is completely unseasonal, but seeing as how it is peeing down with rain as I write this, I don’t care 😉 Illamasqua Scarab is a beautiful blackened red that is almost a one coater, I used two just to even out a few thin patches. In some lights, this does look brown on me, and I’ve read … Continue reading Illamasqua Scarab and MoYou London Princess plate 10
Hello! I’m back today, as promised, with another pretty from UK indie Danglefoot Nail Polish to show you. I make no secret of the fact that I adore purple polish, I think every order I ever make includes at least one (and a blue!) and this is the purple from my Danglefoot order.
Phew, that’s a long blog post title!
I’ve followed Danglefoot Nail Polish on Instagram for a few months now, but this is the first time I’ve ordered as I could not resist Hayley’s recent release! Bra Off, Hair Up (such a fab name!) is a raspberry crelly holo. As is typical for me, I put on a holo and the sun vanishes. So all pics are indoor, natural lighting. Sorry.
