Hi! I’ve finally got time to join in with the Hobby Polish Bloggers theme week for once, it’s been far too long since I’ve managed it! Hobby Polish Bloggers is a really friendly Facebook group, dedicated at all things that go on behind the scenes of a nail blog – from camera issues, to search engines, to platform help. It’s a great resource for any nail blogger. … Continue reading HPB Presents – Glitter Topper
Hi! This fortnight the theme for the UK Stamping Community Facebook group was pastel nails. I’m a bit late posting these, I forgot to do it before I went away for the bank holiday! I thought a pastel gradient base would do the trick.

Hi! Sometimes, ideas in my head just don’t translate to my nails, and today I have one of those occasions to show you. This mani lasted long enough to take photos before I took it off and started again. Continue reading “Nail Fail!”
Well, we’re into June, and that means that there must be a new Nails Inc freebie out there somewhere! This month there are four shades to collect with InStyle magazine (£4.99 so pricier than other recent giveaway mags). Only one of the shades appealed to me – The Tide Is High which is a pastel blue/green (seafoam?) creme. There is also a grey, red and pink available. I’ve already got a ton of similar pinks and reds, and I don’t like wearing grey, so I left those behind. Continue reading “Nails Inc The Tide Is High and Richmond Gardens”
Hello my loves! I hope you are all enjoying the sunshine as much as I am. Everything seems better bathed in sun!
I’ve got another pastel mani for you today. I picked up four of the Sally Hansen Triple Shine jellies from Poundworld recently, then when I got home I looked up some reviews to see what I could do with them. Yes, I know the normal order is to look at reviews first and then buy, but hey, I’ve never been one for normal 😉 I found a review at Nouveau Cheap that had a look I wanted to recreate. Here it is!

Another quick vault post for you, featuring another birthday present. Mr Magpie bought me two Flash Nails glitters, Disco Lights and Bubble Bath. I wanted to try Bubble Bath, but I couldn’t decide what base colour to use. So, I used all of them! Continue reading “Pastel Skittle featuring Flash Nails Bubble Bath”
So apparently spring is here – it’s cold, wet and windy where I am but flowers are out so I’m happy enough 🙂 I thought I’d show you a pastel-y spring-y mani today, done when my nails were longer (sob!)
This is Ciate Sugar Plum, which is a pretty cool-leaning lilac. Mr Magpie bought me one of the Ciate advent calendars for Christmas – I got it on Christmas day rather than the start of December which kinda negated the whole advent part of it, but meant I had great fun opening all the doors at once! Glitter, caviar and mini polishes everywhere 🙂 Continue reading “Ciate Sugar Plum and Essence Circus Confetti”
