    Happy Nail Year 2016!

    I am sure that there are others that are just as happy to see the arse end of 2015 as I am. What a year of meh that was. But thankfully it is finally outta here and we are now into a new year of promise. All shiny and new! Though perhaps not off to the best start given I

    Golden Glitter Gradient New Year Nails

    I for one am happy to be kicking 2015 to the curb, and embarking on a much improved 2016. In all areas. So to ring in the new season I recently went for a glam glitter gradient – gel nails of course, cos who wants to be getting shards of glitter falling into their celebratory Water on the Rocks, eh?

    Christmas Nails with a 3D Tree & Grumpy Cat

    Here are some more Christmas Nails, as I have not yet posted the others that I’ve recently donned. These were done for the Born Pretty Xmas Nail Art comp. I was going to do them anyway, but I just added a quickly hand-fashioned ‘3D tree with presents’ fixture. Bloody hard to shoot to get all the angles haha; talk about starting

    Mauve & White Basic Gradient

    I probably should have posted this before the art-worked post of the other day, but given everything it didn’t quite work out that way. So here it is. A few images of the base colours used. I used Fifth Avenue from China Glaze, an untried I had there that was ready and waiting for a cold day. I really love

    Mauve Gradient Stamping with UberChic Plates Set 4

    So where did that week go? Not sure about you but I got inundated! And pulled my back out on top of all the things, so I’m posting this one rather late. Haven’t been able to laptop thanks to the two positions I can be in – completely horizontal or vertical with minimal bends involved. Time for some stamping fun.

    Sugar Skulls & Pet’la Calaveras Plate Review for Dia de los Muertos

    We go from dead things (Halloween Zombies) to dead things (for Day of the Dead). Yes I know it was a few days past the occasion, but I like sugar skulls anytime! That and I do have to space out my posts; even if I’ve been wearing these ones for days, but didn’t have the energy to sort and upload regardless.

    Dead Zombie Nails for Halloween

    Thought I’d have one last hurrah in the Halloween Nail Designs Department™ and went all out with some Dead Zombie Hands. Hands that have clawed their way through the dirt to get where they are, in true walking dead style. Feeling a bit peckish, got some brains? BRAAAAIIIIINSS!! I kept the heart from the previous mani cos it seemed suited

    31 Day Challenge 2015 Finisher (yes a bit late)

    I only just noticed that these were posted on Sarah @ Chalkboard Nails’ blog from a week ago, so of course I had to grab one. Thus I’m a week late to the party. I finished the 31 Day Challenge weeks ago and after a short break have well and truly moved onto Halloween themed manis since completing this; but it’s
