    Opallac Candyman Can – Gel Polish Swatch

    Here is the Opallac Candyman Can Gel Polish Swatch. This bright green is perfect for St Patrick’s Day. Let’s take a look… How delightful is this green? I realise some of you aren’t “green” people (no, not “green people”) but I love certain greens. Some more than others, but they represent love and nature and have a nice calming effect.

    Metallic Mush by Picture Polish – Swatch Challenge 2

    Metallic Mush by Picture Polish – as part of the Swatch Challenge 2, 2017. The idea was to take a photo in your favourite place, with the swatch and holding the bottle.

It’s a glittery glitter gel polish by @opallacgelpolish with varying sized hexes. See the bottom of page for review details.

    Mani Swap Circle – Owls for Int’l Women’s Day

    Here is the nail art I did for the Mani Swap Circle collab (you can see the collage in the previous post!). I was assigned to do a set from Izzy @cutizzles who had lots of cute options to pick from (cats, aliens, penguins in beanies haha), but I settled on these sweet little owls. Why, you ask? Uh, cos

    Neutrals Inception – Stamping with Beige, White, Taupe

    Despite having 4 polishes on me at the time I still managed to create something in advance, (something basic) but hey – still something, for the @clairestelle8challenge Beige prompt. Stamped and ready. It is TAUPE on WHITE on BEIGE in some kind of Neutrals Inception! No video cos I’m still displaced with sporadic data connection and no gear or space; which is

    Pride Rainbow & Bondage Mardi Gras Nails

    The second look in this week’s Mix ‘N’ Match Mardi Gras Mani set! This option is good for a pop of colour so I kept the bondage aspect and added a Pride Rainbow.

    f-Oil Slick On Black Market

    With my earnest sense of Dad-jokes, it should be no surprise I’ve named this one f-Oil Slick on Black Market. I mean check it out. How good does she look? This is one smooth-arse version of OIL SLICK NAILS, if I do say so myself. Gel makes the perfect base for using nail foils in art due to it’s great self-levelling
