Is this my mojo coming back?

Hello lovelies!

I've been a bit absent as of late.  I have still been painting my nails, but that's about it.  I've not attempted nail art of any description and as pretty as the polishes are I've felt really uninspired.  I've also had writers block.  I'm going to take the pressure of myself, where I expected a blog post daily, instead I'm going to focus on doing a mani I like and writing about it.  To be honest I'm just going to wing it, I hope that's ok with you?


Anyway onto my current mani!
I'd been in Boots recently and spotted Barry M Gellie - Grapefruit and thought "that's a lush colour I need to wear that again some time", so I did just that.  I went home and put it on.  That was on Friday night.  Today when I am writing this is Sunday, that's new for me.  


I decided I needed a "real" mani and I was going to stamp over it at first but then I went with what was closest to hand and that was some nail art pens so I decided to do some freehand leopard print on my accent nails and add glitter to the rest.


The glitter I have used is Dollish Polish - Is This A Kissing Book? which was from Dolly's "The Princess Bride" collection.  A clear base with pink, blue and gold glitters.  Some of the pinks have a lovely holo effect and there are gold diamonds too.


It felt good doing this mani so long may it continue!

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I know theyre a little out of date but I hope you still find them interesting.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