Blogger Review Ice Polish Disney Collection Part1

Hi everyone,

Todays' post is my very first blogger review. Erin from Ice Polish kindly sent me these polishes from her new collection which is based on the Disney characters from various films. Head over to her facebooked page HERE

I have decided to split this in to 2 posts so this first one is a review of Mulan, it is a lovely blue holo that glistens in the sunshine.

This photo was taken at a concert I went to so it was in darkness with the flash on my phone.

Golden Oldie Free choice - I'm a kid in a candy store

Hi all,

When I saw this was a free choice I kinda got excited and just went rummaging through my draw of polish. I have seen a mani done by chitchat nails and this influenced VERY heavily this mani. It is the post showcasing KBShimmer's textured polishes in a rainbow CLICK HERE TO SEE IT Marta did from green to purple I went a little further and used 6 polishes in 1 mani haha I went from orange through the spectrum to pink.

There is only 1 week left of this instalment of Golden Oldie Thursday and I have to say I can't wait for the next lot.

Tri Polish Tuesday Nude, Coral, Turquoise

Hi again it's me,

We are back with the next installment of the TriPolish Challenge and this month's colours are Nude Coral and Turquoise. I am liking this months colours a lot and they work really well together.

I have decided today to do some chevrons, it has been a while since I have done them and thought I'd give it ago again, I need to be more patient with my designs, I get impatient after 5 mins or so and want to pull the tape off but I know it need longer.

It is the penultimate week so the next round of colours should be coming out any time, if you feel like you want to take part head over to crumpets nail tarts on facebook and join all of us that take part.

Golden Oldie Thursday - Red

Hi all you fab nail lovers,

Today's theme on Golden Oldie Thursday is Red. I have quite a few reds but not many that were over a year old and the mani I was originally going to do for this was the Rotherham United badge click HERE to see, but I did that to celebrate them getting promoted to the championship in the football league.

I decided to do something simple and go for ombre. If you have been following SIMPLES - from muggle to mastery by debbie at the crumpet she is going themes each week of nail art which everyone can take part in and try head over to her page on facebook here or to her blog here

Here are the polishes I used I used BarryM Magnetic Burgundy, 2 True shade no 4, A no name polish from a nail art set I got a while back, Collection 2000 Big hair and BarryM Red Glitter.

Golden Oldie Thursday - silver

Hi Everyone,

Today's post is for Golden Oldie Thursday, the theme is a silver accent. I changed my mind like 3 different times until about 20 mins before I sat down to do this. I went with doing a paint drip mani with a silver accent nail, I took this week's GOT challenge prompt literally a silver accent nail.

Sorry this is a day late I got asked by a good friend Sol to do her nails for a hen do so I couldn't resist and forgot to schedule this and then I fell asleep early so it never got done yesterday haha.

Hi all,

Today marks the start of another month of Tri Polish Tuesday incase you didn't know what that is, as it sounds there are 3 colours in each month and you have to use those colours to create mani's atleast one mani of the month must have the 3 colours but you don't have to stick with the same 3 all month you can give it a bit of a change which I did most of last month.

This month's colours are

Hi Everyone,

This is my first ever twinsies challenge and it was set up by the lovely lisa over @ Lisas-nails. She put a request out on instagram and just by luck I was thinking about it that morning so I replied and she got in touch. Lisa suggested we try our own way of doing nail art by PinkFlyingCow she does amazing nail art and does tutorials on youtube this is the one she suggested. I watched it and loved it so here we are today.

NailsXO World Cup Competition

Hi all,

I was kindly invited by Emily at Nailsxo to take part in a World Cup themed Nail Art contest and I sent in my request which was accepted so thank you to emily. There are quite a few other girls taking part like Alicia over at Fixin' to Faff she got England, which I think is great after the post she did the other day about moving from the USA to the UK.

If you would like to have a look at who has got what and what we will be creating head over to Emilys blog CLICK HERE, she does lovely nail art and reviews.

I have got Uruguay. I've never been to Uruguay I don't know anyone form Uruguay so I was a little stumped when I started off but a couple of days later of brain storming and a lot of googling and pintert-ing haha I had it set. I don't think they have got a chance of winning but you never know.
