    Mani Swap Circle – Red, White & Brown Lines w Negative Space

    Here’s my entry for the Mani Swap Circle – Red, White & Brown edition for Valentine’s Day February 2018. I started out intending to do something different and ended up with this recreation. I was to recreate a mani by RaeNaility @raenaility who had lots of fun stamping manis, with lots of potential geometric picks, (and a ton of cute baby photos

    Melted Chocolate Fluid Art for Valentine’s Day

    I kinda get sick of doing the stock standard cutesy, expected stuff for events and occasions sometimes, so I went a bit leftfield with this Valentine’s Day mani. And did Melted Chocolate Fluid Art nails. I used Sinful Colors Hypnotic Transforming Top Coat called Redrum. Beats spraying a massive can of silicone spray! Even if it is not as versatile

    Blooming Gel, Bows & Wine with Sherry Spark

    Blooming Gel, Wine & Ribbons, all wrapped up in a bow… Here’s a pre-Valentine’s mani using Sherry Spark by @opallacgelpolish as reviewed earlier in this post. A wine-coloured gel polish. I wanted an organic backdrop for the ribbon charm, so I was playing around with some white blooming gel which I’ll be reviewing & demonstrating more in depth very soon. You can see

    Opallac Sherry Spark – Gel Polish Swatch

    Who doesn’t love to match their nails to their wine, eh? 🍷😁 Since Valentine’s Day is not far off, I thought this gel polish #swatch would be apt. It is a nice, full-bodied kind of red for the collection. This wine-shaded, shimmery beauty is Sherry Spark from @opallacgelpolish 💖 I’ve tried to capture the shimmer of it so you can see, as it was

    Mani Swap Circle Jan 2018: Ultra Violet Nail Art

    Pantone’s Colour of The Year 2018 is – Ultra Violet. Which is perfect as I own lots of shades in this colour – unlike 2017’s colour Greenery!?!?! That was not my favourite. So it seems the Mani Swap Circle is back ON! Which is great cos it was a lot of fun – at least when your assigned person actually

    Black Gel with Neon Florals Nail Art

    I love a good neon-on-black mani that really makes the colours pop. I also love floral manis. No surprised there, eh? So thought I should combine the two into a lovely popping neon floral number. Rather than hand-painting it, I chose to stamp – partly due to time constraints and the fact I have these unused but lovely stamping plates!
