Time Periods - Ancient Egypt

Hi all!

We're walking like Egyptians today down in Ancient Egypt.
Thing is when talking to a friend about this I had a different mani in my head but when I started doing it I completely forgot about my original plan, oops... Well since I'm writing this post in advance (I'm organised like that) you never know (and neither do I) this could be a double post for today's challenge.

Hieroglyphics seemed like an obvious choice as well as the colours.

Polishes Used:
OPI - Tomorrow Never Dies
OPI - DS Magic
OPI - Goldeneye
OPI - The Man With The Golden Gun

How amazing is the Tomorrow Never Dies/DS Magic combo!

And you know, despite lusting after The Man With The Golden Gun for ages, this is only the second time I used it!

Here are the hieroglyphics I used for inspiration and below you can check out what other era's I'll be attempting.


  1. wow fantastic love them! The blue and gold look fantastic together

    1. Thanks =) I forgot how nice this looked together! Xo

  2. Love the blue and gold together! I think that being such a rich vivid blue it really makes the gold pop. I really wish I had that gold flakie polish.

    1. I love it and it was well worth the investment. I removed the rest of the mani but kept the ring and thumb for a few days =) xo

  3. Amazing! Man with a Golden Gun looks stunning - how does it feel knowing you have real gold on your fingers?

    1. It's a bit surreal, I'm normally a 1 a day mani girl but I do try to make the most of this =) xo

  4. Another lovely Egyptian manicure! This is possible my favourite theme ever!

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I know theyre a little out of date but I hope you still find them interesting.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