Welcome to part two of the nail art threesome I’ve had with Alice of One Nail to Rule Them All and Allie of Brit Nails! You can check out part one here where I attempted one of Alice’s designs, and today I’m showing you the design of Allie’s that I went for.

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.
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…
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.
I’ve got a nail art tutorial today for a spring fashion trend, in collaboration with River Island and three other brilliant UK nail bloggers (Ave, Alice, Jenny and Allie) who are each showing a different theme chosen by River Island to represent their upcoming collections.
The last couple of years I’ve taken part in piCture pOlish’s BlogFest, and had intended to again this year but for various reasons that I won’t bore you with I had to pull out last minute. Jules very kindly allowed me to keep the items for review instead so here’s the two I was sent, along with the right angled Nail Vinyls now available through piCture pOlish.
I’ve always worn dark colours in spring and summer, so why not post some abstract citrus nail art in November? Why not, exactly! And when it’s exclusively made up of Barry M polishes, you can’t really go wrong.
