    Fireworks in Metallic & Black, Mani Swap Circle – Jan 2019

    It’s time for another Mani Swap! I did a Fireworks mani in metallics for Mani Swap Circle – Jan 2019 edition. We’re starting to post earlier each month from this year, due to the glut of Challenges usually due at the end of the year. The January colours were Metallic & Black, specifically silver, gold and rose gold. Right up my

I don’t often have time to do these things, but on a whim managed to fit them both in. So a quick post today…

    Tropical Palms Gradient – Birthday Nails for Jill (Glisten & Glow)

    I have the 2nd of two birthay nails for the week. This time it’s Tropical Palms Gradient – Birthday Nails for Jill (Glisten & Glow). Whose top coats I use like they’re going out of style. I’m not the only one.   Her favourite colour is apparently pink, but I didn’t have any pinks from her brand (mainly cos I

    A Wintery Mrs De Winter, or Holy Holo, A-England!

    This one is for all the holo lovers. I’ve named it A Wintery Mrs De Winter, or Holy Holo, A-England! Because this polish is both sumptuous and holo-tastic! Or as I’d imagine the posh aristocrats in 1800s England would exclaim upon seeing it: “By god, Jeeves! Get me more!” Mrs De Winter is a neutral classic. A softly muted grey taupe –

    MoYou London Earrings Contest, Entry 1 Nail Stamping

    Adding these here for posterity – my MoYou London Earrings Contest, Entry 1 Nail Stamping. This was the entry that won me a voucher (yay!) and what a nice surprise.

    DISCO BALL New Year’s Eve Nails 2019

    DISCO BALL New Year’s Eve Nails – these are the nails I did for NYE 2019! 🎉🎉 I used metallics in a gradient, with diamond glitters to represent a shiny disco ball. They were placed individually and weren’t the most uniformly cut pieces, but I persisted as I liked the colour payoff.   The white nails were going to have

    Freehand Xmas Holly Berries in Picture Polish

    HAPPY CHRISTMAS 🎄🎅🎁 (to all who partake)!! These are my simple Xmas Holly Berry nails – I was having a Picture Polish fest and used several shades in their range. Again posted later than intended, and again kind of messily hand-painted standing up with a fine brush 😅 But you know; babies to hug, cats to pat, food comas to

    Festivus Fingernails 2018

    Hey hey! It’s Festivus time! Festivus Fingernails 2018, to be precise! Well I’m a day late and a dollar short, but it is that time of the year and we can’t forget the non-Christmas types now, can we?   I even created a foil Pole symbolic of Festivus customs (see below), adorned with a crystal to create the “i” in the

    YOU’RE SUCH A SNOWFLAKE – Snowflake Nails

    Back with a Winter warmer. I called this one: YOU’RE SUCH A SNOWFLAKE ❄️❄️❄️ Sure, it’s seasonally inappropriate in places where Summer reigns, but each season warrants an obligatory Snowflake nail design – no matter what the climate. White Christmases are the best! Was going to add flakies, but couldn’t bend to get them out, but I combined matte &
