Hello again! So reading the title of this post, you may think that you’ve seen this colour combo before… well, yes! This mani was one I did for #whencolourscollide a few weeks ago, but I wasn’t sure about it so I did another that I preferred. But looking back at the photos, I decided this one wasn’t bad so I thought I’d show it anyway. One of the … Continue reading Orange, teal and grey dotticure
Hi folks! Today I finally have my review of my very first MeeBox for you. I’ve been watching MeeBox and NailBox since they both launched around a year ago. NailBox seems to have floundered a bit recently, but MeeBox is still going strong, so when I decided to try one out, there was no contest. The June MeeBox was an indie special, themed on the … Continue reading MeeBox June – Splash!
Hello! I’m still working through my untried mountain, so today you are getting a swatch of a very pretty duochrome from Bear Pawlish called Gender Bender. To the pics!
Hello! It’s time for the bi-weekly When Colours Collide challenge again, and the prompt is orange, teal and grey. I have to admit, I drew a blank. I went and found the right colours from my stash, sat and stared at them a while, then went and painted my nails purple.

It was my birthday a couple of weeks ago, and one of the presents I received was the MoYou London Mother Nature stamping set. Continue reading “Adventures in stamping – MoYou London Mother Nature set”
Today’s mani is a splash of colour – Kissy from Sinful Colours. Not a brand that is easy to find in the UK, I must have picked this up from Poundland or TJ Hughes (can’t remember which!) Continue reading “Sinful Colors – Kissy”
I’m a novice at nail art. I stare in awe at some of the creations that show up on my FB feed, and wonder if I’ll ever be able to come up with anything approaching that level. The best way to learn is to practice (at least, that’s what I keep telling my students!) so I figured joining a challenge would make me learn and use some new techniques.
I joined Crumpet’s Nail Tarts group, who have just started a new 52 week pix n mix challenge. It seems pretty relaxed, one mani a week from one of two prompts. I can do that! (I hope 😉
This week we can choose either teal or go for a 2 colour gradient. I wanted to do a gradient as I’ve never tried one before. Things got messy. I may need to restock on cotton pads and nail polish remover..
The finished result (attempt 3 or 4, I lost count):
