Barry M Gelly Swatches 2014

Another post! Aren't I kind :) So today I have 1 of a few posts that will be continuing in the next few weeks. I was lucky enough to win a MASSIVE goodie bag from Barry M which was absolutely AMAZING. I never expected anywhere near as much as they sent me so I can't thank them enough. 



As they were so so kind I decided to swatch all of the polishes that they sent me and up today I have the first lot of the Barry M Gelly Neutral collection.

Polish Party - Recreate Your First Mani

Hey guys! Time for another Polish Party…. This months theme is Recreate Your First Mani and seeing as I have only been blogging for 4 months I decided to do my first mani that I could find on my Instagram and here are the results!

Colour Me Crazy - Yellow & Nailsxo Prize

Hey guys! Happy Sunday?! I have two posts in one for you today as I have created my nail art for this weeks Colour Me Crazy - Yellow, using my prize from Nailsxo's amazing competition, which arrived this week and I wanted to show you how generous Emily was and tell you a little bit more about the comp.


So for the weeks Yellow Colour me crazy I was having trouble thinking about nail art to create… I have yellow polishes but I only ever use them for detailing not as an actual base colour so I was really struggling.

Mickey & Minnie Polka Dot Nails

Today I have a quick, photo-filled post for you which was inspired by a recent post by Dahlia Nails.



These nails were inspired by the below picture from Dahlia Nails that they posted on the 30th June. I love their page and these really caught my eye as a Disney fan!

Models Own Floral Polish for Tans

Hello everyone!!



Sorry for not posting yesterday but I was away for my boyfriend's dad's Birthday! We had such a lovely time in Norfolk and I came home yesterday afternoon so I thought I would have plenty of time to post, but I got so badly sunburnt (even though I wore factor 50) that I literally couldn't move… Ive had like no sleep and can't move one of my arms. But anyway enough about the troubles of being ginger….



Today I have a manicure that I created whilst we were having crazy storms in England. One night it even knocked over a vase in my bathroom and it smashed all over the floor so it was pretty scary!

E.L.F Haul and Review

Hey guys! So seeing as I posted a nail art post yesterday I decided that todays post was going to be make up related which I haven't done for a while… My last make up post was a lip crayon review and is actually my second most popular post of all time so I am hoping that my nail followers don't mind a little make up time.

This month is E.L.F's (Eyes Lips Face) 10th Birthday! Woo congrats Elf. And at the beginning of the month the UK site did a wooping 51% off online orders, even on sale stuff which was amazing… (over £25 only) and of course I just couldn't resist this amazing deal and stocked up my make up bag!



I have placed one order from them before and I absolutely loved the products I got. They are all super cheap and high quality with amazing deals on all the time.

Funky French

Afternoon all! I realise this is a day late but I was taking care of a poorly boyfriend who took care of me when I was ill by painting my nails so it was worth being one day late. (Check out his mani here)


So today I have these funky french manicure nails I created as a twist on the standard ones you see every where.

Barry M Floral Nails

Hey guys! Lots of posts this week I know…. but as I think I am going to be very busy at the weekend I thought I would post now to make up for if I miss Sundays post. Prepared girlie here!



So with all the beautiful releases that have been coming out from Barry M lately (that I really shouldn't buy but desperately want!) I decided to be good and simply rediscover my old favourites to create this floral mani!

Foil Half and Half Mani

Hey guys, so todays mani is especially for my Auntie Nicky, who kindly brought me the foils that I have used to create this so… THANKS Auntie Nicky!!


I have wanted to use these foils ever since she brought me them and experimented a few times but never really got a great result. I think my ideas were too exotic and difficult really but this simple mani worked really well!

Born Pretty Store Brushes Review

Ooops! I forgot to publish this yesterday…. SORRY! But anyway here is my final post on the flower outline nails with a review of Born Pretty Store brushes.

So I was kindly sent some products to review from Born Pretty Store and this is my last post on the products that they sent. 
I am a massive fan on teeny tiny brushes for creating nail art and therefore this product was perfect for me!



It is this pack of 12 small brushes which you can buy here. These are £3.79 for TWELVE which is amazing and so far I have tried to use just one of the brushes so I can give you an idea of how well they will last and I am not disappointed at all!

Models Own Matte vs Hypergel Topcoat

Second Post for the day is comparing two Models Own Topcoats. I am going to re do this post soon hopefully with pictures that show more of a difference but for now I have experimented with the mani I posted earlier today.



I think when I found the earlier image of this nail design on pintrest they were Matte (read previous post if you don't understand) so I wanted to try out creating it as close to as I could remember. BUT as I have recently purchased the Models Own Hypergel Topcoat I was torn…. So I decided to do a comparison.

Flower Outline Nails

So I have THREE posts for you all ready to go, but I am only going to post two of them today and one tomorrow. Don't get too excited because they are all based on the same mani but they are all different perspectives so Im not trying to cram too much into one post!

Polish Party - Gradient

Its time for another Polish Party (info in my About Me section) and this months theme, chosen by the group, is gradient.



Now I recently posted a gradient so for this one I decided that I had to step it up a notch from the plan old gradient with glitter I do frequently, to this mani I created using a few easy to find objects.
