Golden Oldie Thursday - Lilac not that much!

Hey everyone,

A day late but that's because my little dog Ralph had surgery on Thursday so he took centre stage for the day, the theme this week on the Golden Oldie Thursday Challenge is Lilac, when I came across this my first thought was cool then when I looked in my draws I saw I didn't have any lilac that was over a year old what should I do, I have spent probably 2 weeks trying to think of what to do and I came up with just a mash up of all the purple I own in one mani.

Here is what we have done on previous weeks and what is to come.

Tri Polish Tuesday

Hi everyone,

So today I have only used one of the colours from this months colour theme of purple, red and green I have gone for red because I wanted to do this mani for my fiance not that he will even read this post but the thought is there. 

If you are a football fan you may or may not know about this team Rotherham United. If you are not a footie fan you may just want to look at the pics and laugh.

Golden Oldie Thursday - Bling

Hello all you fellow blingers,

Todays theme on Golden Oldie Thursday is Bling. From the outset I had a pretty good idea what i wanted to do and it didn't take too much planning it is fairly simple but it popped. But I think it is safe to say most of the mani's for today's theme will pop.

Swatch and review Nails Inc Porchester square & Fleet Street

Hi all,

I have decided to combine 2 Nails Inc reviews today as I thought why not!

So today we have Nails Incs Porchester Square and Fleet Street which is a Leather Effect polish. Porchester Square is a very pale brown it is one of nails Incs 'Hero Shades' so I'm sure you will be able to get yourself one, Fleet Street is a darker brown but not by much but has a leather effect

WARNING - this will be picture heavy but what did you expect from me hehe

Review and swatching Nails Inc Sloane Avenue

Hi everyone,

I have had these pictures waiting in my memory card to be edited and written up for what seems likes ages but in reality only a couple of weeks.

Here we go.....

I do have a coral, I said a few weeks ago on a prompt for the crumpets GOT challenge that I only had 1 coral but I now know I have 2. This in the bottle to me looked pink not coral I think it has been damaged by sunlight in the bottle but when you put it on it is clearly coral.

Golden Oldie Thursday - Gradient Taped Mani

Hi to all,

Today's theme on GOT is Neon. This theme got me worried at first and then I looked in my draw and I was suprised and went oooooh. I have neon colours that I didn't consider neon. I have gone with BarryM SLE Lime Green, W7 Hip Hop, W7 Flourescent Pink and Collection 2000 Hip Hop. I had no idea what to do with them and then wham it hit me and I loved the idea a taped gradient. Here are the colours and then please read more because I loved this mani and I hope you do to.

The 1st of the Month's Tri Polish Tuesday

Hi Everyone,

I hope you have had a lovely weekend we did here in the UK it was a bank holiday so if you were lucky enough to work for someone who gives you that time off then it was a 3 day weekend YIPPEE. It meant lots of time to walk my dog as we have had wonderous weather for a change and lots of time planning future mani's.

So this months colours for May are Purple, Red and Green I had no problem  in choosing these with the weather as lovely as it is I might change the purple about but otherwise these are lovely.

Here they all are in their glory.

Golden Oldie Thursday Flower Power

Hi guys,

I'm back today with a very cheery nail art entry for todays Golden Oldie Thursday Challenge, the theme for today as the title suggests is flowers.I thought I'd try a different way (for me atleast) of doing flowers.I used BarryM white (not over a year old but I have been using this brand and this colours for over a year in almost every mani so I stretched it a little) and La Femme Black.

I decided to try a water marble and try and make a flower pattern on my nail and I then topped it with  one of my flower embellishments that I got ages ago.
I watched some of the lovely videos on youtube from Colette @ My Simple little pleasures she is the watermarble queen and I bow down to her I wish I could get my technique as good as hers.

Anyway onto the nail art.
