31 Day Challenge - A Mani Inspired By You

Hi all!

It's Day 27 of the 31 Day Challenge - A Mani Inspired By You.

So anyone that knows me will know I'm quirky, and describing myself as quirky makes me think of 2 of my favourite fictional characters...

Penelope Garcia - Criminal Minds
(my absolute idol and fashion icon!)


Dr. Sheldon Cooper - The Big Bang Theory

The reason I've mentioned them is my mani is also kind of inspired by them.  First and foremost it's eclectic but secondly it's showing some of my fave nail art techniques and polish finishes.

Garcia is represented by my ring finger and quite possible my thumb too.  Pink leopard print, need I say more?  Also she's the kinda girl that loves a bit of glitter and glitz so blue sparklieness screams Penelope!

My middle finger is a representation of Sheldon, it's the galaxy which he is so often looking to for the answer to string theory or for some kind of black hole/worm hole (my pinkie?)

As for my pointer i just really wanted to try another of my colour changing polishes from 365 Days of Color.

Polishes used:
Nails Inc - Baker Street
Glitzology - 
365 Days of Color - Assort-Mint
Nails Inc - Serena
Nails Inc - England's Lane
Nails Inc - Electric Lane
Models Own - White Nail Art Pen
Models Own - Silver Nail Art Pen
China Glaze - Surfin' For Boys
OPI - Kiss Me On My Tulips
Models Own - Black Nail Art Pen
China Glaze - Smoke and Ashes

Wow!  That's a lot of polishes.

Anyway I think this mani describes me to a T - Quirky =D


  1. They are two of my favourite characters too! I love the galaxy nail and who doesn't love pink leopard print!?

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I know theyre a little out of date but I hope you still find them interesting.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

Nail Lacquer UK - Turkish Delight

Hello lovelies!
Today I'm wearing Nail Lacquer UK - Turkish Delight. I'm a huge indie fan and I love that there are some brilliant UK indies out there.
Turkish Delight is a pink jelly, full of pink/purple circle glitters.  There's a stunning iridescent purple shimmer through it also.

I can't describe how stunning this is in real life and I struggled to capture it's beauty, this was the best I could manage with the bathroom lights, lol.

I reckon with the shimmer this would look fab over black!
P.S. Can't say I wasn't attracted to this polish purely for its name, hehe. xo
