    Funky Leopard Nails in White and Gold

    It’s been at least several months since I donned any animal print nail art, so after some deliberation I decided to run with Leopard print nails. I wanted to try out this white shade of Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy – Sure Thing, so that was the base of this art. I wanted something more bold and opted for a golden bronze

    Quick Mani Monday – Kit Glitter Topper Testing

    Just a quick road test of one of several glitterlicious glitter top coats I got for Xmas. I have quite the pile of untrieds screaming out to be worn, so now that I can wear polish again (YAY!)

    Purple Pythagorean Nails – Quick Post

    Just a quick post today. Look away now if you have an aversion to feet. As purple toes with triangle glitters is the nail art du jour – or rather the toe-nail art. After wearing sparkles over the Festive season, matte glitter seemed like a great option. In fact I love triangles – and have done long before they were re-purposed

    OPI Fifty Shades Of Grey Collection – coming Jan 2015

    I can’t say I’m a huge fan of the books, though I do love a good grey polish. Which, by the way makes me glad his name happens to be Mr Grey, and not Mr Pink, Mr Lavender or Mr Peach. So I do like the look of some of this 6-piece collection. Due out in January of 2015, there is

So I’m posting this a little late, but I’ve been a little ill and had some tech issues with tetchy interwebs and phones and all, so better late than never, right?

    piCture pOlish Escapades – Swatches & Review

    From the several recently released ‘blogger collaboration’ lacquers from piCture pOlish, there were quite a few greens. I have to say this stood out to me and was was one of my favourites of the new releases. This was in conjunction with Malene from Nail Escapades – a blogger from Denmark. Nice job on the outcome!
