I'm trying.


So I've been trying my damnedest to keep this blog going. And I'm not doing very well.

I had drafted some posts a while back (which I will still go ahead and post). I never got round to posting them at the time because I had an iPhone and the app just didn't want to work for me.
I know theyre a little out of date but I hope you still find them interesting.

So what's been happening since I last posted?  Well I met a guy (on Tinder of all places), we got engaged last November (I'll do a proper post on this), and we got marries this September!  We enjoyed a wonderful honeymoon in Japan and for the past month its been back to reality.

I am going to change this blog a bit.  Before it could have always been classified as a beauty blog. Now I think it'll be more of an eclectic blog (by the way check out She's Eclectic one of my all time favourite bloggers).

Anyway,  sorry about all the words and lack of pictures bit I hope to rectify that soon.

Bye for now.

A New Beginning - Gel Nails

Hello lovelies!

It's been a while...

And I've stepped away from the norm and tried my hand at gel nails. 
On the recommendation of a friend I purchased the Red Carpet Manicure set from QVC and I've not looked back. 

I hope to do a more indepth review on the whole set. But for now, here are some of my mani's...

Daily Lacquer - Come What May and Sinful Colors - Cream Pink

Hello lovelies!

Here's an old mani I did for a challenge which I was far too lazy (seems to be my theme tune lately) to complete. 

Polishes used:
Sinful Colors - Cream Pink
Daily Lacquer - Come What May

I used nail vinyls to create the chevron tip. 

I hope you like them.

Pastel Polka Dots

Hello lovelies!

A lazy Friday night in resulted in playing with polish and with studs. 

Polishes used:
Lime Crime - Parfait Day
Treasures By Tan - Gramma Cupcake

I was in the mood for some spring pastels to brighten up this horrid grey weather we've been suffering recently. 

I added the studs as an afterthought, I was going to attempt some freehand art but I love how these turned out.

Sparkling Stars

Hello lovelies!

As well as unused nail wraps I've got a lot of unused nail vinyls. 

Here are some funky star vinyls I had. 

Polishes used:
Color Club - Metamorphosis 
Color Club - Sky High
Color Club - Daisy Does It

This mani is so cute! I even got asked "who does your nails!"

Grey & Pink Floral

Hello lovelies!

The last few posts have been focused on nail wraps but I've painted my nails today. 

Polishes used:
China Glaze - Elephant Walk
Glitzology - Trashy Ballerina

I love pink and grey together, it's such a pretty combo. The little decal on the nail just completed the cute feminine look.

Multi-Coloured Chevron Wraps

Hello lovelies!

After the success of the Rebel Nails Wraps I decided to give these ones from Nails Rock a wee go. 

There was a decent variety of colours and sizes. Although I didn't find the application just as smooth. 

And unfortunately despite having the same "should last up to 10 days" I had these off the next evening. 

They just started lifting at the edges and looked quite grotty so I had to remove them. 

It's a shame as they were very pretty.
