    Zoya – Yuna, Swatch and Review

    Fantastic for Fall. Awesome for Autumn! This is Zoya Yuna, from the Fall 2014 Ignite Collection. It’s dark and moody and loads of fun! Before I continue, I should excuse my slight absence. I haven’t been in the best of health, and had many things crop up; ergo I am way, way behind in planned posts and painting. Openings and whatnot. Hopefully

    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!) I will be making my way through them. Today’s glitter topper test run contained a combination of small hex glitter in orange, red, pink

    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

    Festivus / Christmas Nails over piCture pOlish Escapades

    After swatching piCture pOlish’s Esapades, I did a little Christmas nail art in anticipation of the festive season. 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? And it’s still not here just quite yet, so you know,

    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!

    Naught for November 2014

    After being off to a flying start, post-August potholes, there’s been a further little hiccup. A so called spanner in the works that left me unable to continue with the existing plan for the end of this year. I ended up very seriously hospitalised and am still recovering, which I will be forced to do for a little while. I
