    Blooming Gel, Bows & Wine with Sherry Spark – with Born Pretty Review

    Blooming Gel, Wine & Ribbons, all wrapped up in a bow… Here’s a pre-Valentine’s mani using Sherry Spark by @opallacgelpolish as reviewed earlier in this post. A wine-coloured gel polish. Also with a review for Born Pretty Store Blooming Gel in White. I wanted an organic backdrop for the ribbon charm, so I was playing around with some white blooming gel which I’ll

    Opallac Sherry Spark – Gel Polish Swatch

    Who doesn’t love to match their nails to their wine, eh? 🍷😁 Since Valentine’s Day is not far off, I thought this gel polish #swatch would be apt. It is a nice, full-bodied kind of red for the collection. This wine-shaded, shimmery beauty is Sherry Spark from @opallacgelpolish 💖 I’ve tried to capture the shimmer of it so you can see, as it was

    Mani Swap Circle Jan 2018: Ultra Violet Nail Art

    Pantone’s Colour of The Year 2018 is – Ultra Violet. Which is perfect as I own lots of shades in this colour – unlike 2017’s colour Greenery!?!?! That was not my favourite. So it seems the Mani Swap Circle is back ON! Which is great cos it was a lot of fun – at least when your assigned person actually

    Black Gel with Neon Florals Nail Art

    I love a good neon-on-black mani that really makes the colours pop. I also love floral manis. No surprised there, eh? So thought I should combine the two into a lovely popping neon floral number. Rather than hand-painting it, I chose to stamp – partly due to time constraints and the fact I have these unused but lovely stamping plates!

    Stamping Plate Harunouta L034 Review – Born Pretty Store

    Yay, Sneaky WiFi! Thankfully I can lob on long enough to post this overdue snippet to Instagram and maybe schedule this post if the connections holds out. What a score 🙂 It’s so hard not being connected, as I need access to do basic things, so it’s not entirely ideal. CAN’T WAIT til things settle & I have proper net access

This dusty shade of grape is part of the One-Step Gel range – meaning it incorporates the base and top coats into the colour gel = simpler application.

    Why it’s almost the end of the #31DC2017 (oh thank god!) and we’ve hit the 29th’s Inspired by Supernatural prompt.   I went with hand-painted symbols inspired by illustrated shadow-side imagery, the kind related to magic glyphs & tarot ✨ Look Ma, it’s matte! Who doesn’t love how sexy matte nails look? The base is Blink one-step gel from @madam_glam which you can see

    31DC2017 Day 28: A Flag – A Li’l Bit British

    My least favourite prompt in the #31DC2017 is the Flag one. Every year. It is the least inspiring yet I’ve never done a ‘serious’ flag, like for realsies. Didn’t entirely do that this year either, but incorporated the British Flag into a mani with some metallic decals I had on hand.     I did some matte stamping with Plate BP-L078 from @bornprettystore (use
