Nail art threesome: One Nail to Rule Them All

Alice of One Nail to Rule Them All and Allie of Brit Nails and I have had a Whatsapp conversation going for years now. They’ve kept me sane when blogging (and non-blogging life) has been driving me up the wall. They’re a great sounding board, and wonderful friends. So who better to have a threesome with? A nail art threesome that is.

Pretty Serious ‘Type 40′…and some overdue updates

It’s been months since I last blogged, I know. Last year was a pretty big one, with a wedding, a (seemingly never ending) house extension and some pretty major business changes so it’s probably not surprising that blogging has taken a bit of a back seat.

Grace-full Nail Polish ‘What a Girl Wants’ collection

It’s been a while, so long in fact that I am now in a different decade! Today though I have the 2nd birthday collection from Grace-full Nail Polish, a lovely Australian indie brand. The collection is called ‘What a Girl Needs (the follow up to ‘What a Girl Wants’) and consists of 6 polishes that were derived form suggestions from the Grace-full Facebook fan group.

OPI Color Paints Swatch & Review

OPI Color Paints

If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen that I posted a bottle shot of the OPI Color Paints (ugh it kills me to drop the U out) and I was really excited about these. Color Paints is a set of 8 jelly colours with a silver ‘canvas’ base. If I’m honest, I’ve not been excited about non-vintage polish of late. There have been some nice polishes, but nothing that has made me feel genuinely keen to pull out the nail art supplies and have a play. I’m so glad that this collection met my expectations; they’re incredibly fun to use and I’ve still got things in my head that I want to try that I didn’t get time to do for this post. So, on to the swatches…

Quickie post: Powder Perfect Stained Glass nail art

Powder Perfect Stained Glass Nail Art

When it rains it pours! I know I should plan my posts better but I just felt like sharing something a bit more artsy than just swatches today. My mum brought over her Powder Perfect Stained Glass polishes when she visited earlier this year for me to steal. The blue instantly stood out for me and makes great abstract water with some She Sells Seashells vinyls, and with the addition of some fishies (a no name orange random bottle I found) it made for quite a cute mani.
