Eradicate H8 in the Nail Polish Blogger Community

Hi all!

A bit of a serious mani today and a cause that's close to my heart, as I myself have suffered at the hands of bullies but I'm proud to say I came out the other side a stronger person for it.

Bullying is not funny. It is not cool. It is not right. And more importantly, it is not okay.


Most of us are, thankfully, residents of countries that support tolerance and many of our families have settled
in these places simply for that reason. Generations later, it is our responsibility to perpetuate that message of 
tolerance across our new social platforms, including the internet.
As members of the nail polish blogging community, we all share a love of beauty, color, and lacquer. Other 
than that, we are remarkably different: from our race to our religion to our hair color...even to our polish
application techniques. To marginalize anyone because of those differences is completely unacceptable and 
today I take a stand against that. I refuse to allow other people's view of "normal" dictate how I behave, 
believe, and blog. 

In solidarity with a multitude of bloggers linked below, my purple manicure represents my proud commitment
to the No H8 movement. Today, November 8, I dedicate my post to ending bullying of any kind and to 
encouraging diversity and imperfection among our colorful community.




My mani is a shout out to when times were simpler when our lives revolved round chasing butterflies, picking flowers and making daisy chains.











I hope the day comes that we no longer have to deal with bullies but in the mean time there is support out there for you, so please reach out if you need it or help those you think are suffering.

♥ xo

I'm trying.

Hi! 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I know theyre a little out of date but I hope you still find them interesting.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.

Money Smart Nail Art Competition Entry

Hi all!
Wow!  I'm really shocked, MoneySupermarket.com have invited me to participate in their Money Smart Nail Art Bloggers Competition.  This means I am in with the chance to win a prize worth £300, how amazing would that be!


Anyway for my regular followers you will know that I'm mad on leopard print!  So I thought what better design to do a tutorial on.  
Materials Required: Base Coat - I use OPI Matte Nail Envy Selection of polishes - cremes are best for opacity but you can use glitters if you build them up Nail Art pen or Dotting Tool  Top Coat - I use Seche Vite

Paint your nails with the base coat to protect your nail from staining (I also find that Nail Envy encourages nail growth). *A good tip is before you start, wipe your nails with some nail polish remover, this is called squeaking the nail, it will remove any excess oil, making your mani last longer.

Paint your nails your chosen colours, any colours work but I've chose a few of the Barry M Gellies (which are c…

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.
