Golden Oldie Thursday - Purple

Hi Everyone,

Now I was unsure where to go with this mani, I looked at all my old purples and the all were Avon or Rimmel. I don't have anything against the brands but the colours looked dull to me and I wanted something that just made me feel like it was still summer just for a little longer then I found my Sinful Colors bottle hidden in my dressing table.

The name of the polish is Sinful Colors Lets Talk. I have probably had this just over a year and I really like this colour. It has a lovely shine to it, just an all over good purple.

The final Tri Polish Tuesday for August

Hi all,

I lost inspiration with this mani and patience haha. I have planned in doing a mani using straws and dotting on the colours in the shape of the straw. Below is a similar design to what I wanted to do, I don't know the original person who did the nail art if you know message me so I can credit

Depression Awareness mani #fightforlightandlive

Hi everyone,

Today is a global chance for all the nail community to raise awareness of depression. As it came to light earlier this week with the untimely and sad passing of Robin Williams it has brought the subject in to the media limelight again. It is so sad that it takes someone as world renowned as him to bring this subject to the front of peoples minds because this illness is an ongoing battle for anyone.

New KIKO Milano store in Leeds

Hi everyone,

Today I have a little treat for you I nipped into Leeds the other weekend and went to the new Kiko store. From the outside it look very nice modern with sleek lines a lovely glass front which is in style with the rest of the trinity shopping centre in Leeds.

I went inside and was served by the loveliest shop assistant. If you haven't been to a Kiko store before it is a very nice experience.

Golden Oldie Thursday - white base

Hi everyone,

With today's Golden Oldie Thursday I have got something a little tropical today, I thought I'd use something I never have used before my fimo fruit. I got this little set of fimo fruit when I bought my 1st nail art kit last year. I thought I'd give it a go and see how I liked using it

Tri Polish Tuesday #2

Hi everyone,

I have something I think is cute, I was inspired by a good friend of mine called alison who makes lots of different items herself, head over to her facebook page here for a look, she is amazing and can do basically anything you request she made me a nail polish carrier ages ago and it's still going strong despite me standing on it once by accident.

I decided to do some bunting. She has done some amazing ones lately I could no way have got the detail onto my nail that she did on the bunting but I gave it a go.

I used MUA Blue Sky, W7 Hip Hop and 2True shade no 41 and a Rio nail art pen.

Twinsies with RachelC from The Imperfect10 Blog

Hi everyone,

I am a little annoyed at this, I had this post all ready and raring to go last night but some point between editing it and checking now it has disappeared! WTF!!! so this will be all I can remember from memory.

I have something new to me at least for you today a twinsies nail art with RachelC from The Imperfect10 blog. We originally started with a triplets nail art but that will come later on so me and Rachel stayed in contact and she suggested we do a water spotted mani. I had never done or attempted to do a water spotted mani so before I said yes I thought I'd give it a go and see if the spray I wanted to use would work.

Here is the first attempt. I used OPI You're so Flippy Floppy which is a gorgeous honey yellow that sparkles and decided to attempt the water spotting with W7 Suede.

Golden Oldie Thursday stripes

Hi everyone,

On today's blog post I am doing stripes. I wondered how I should do this should I do use striping tape all along should I use my striping brush? Then I thought I would do a compromise.

I used NYC blue sky which is a lovely blue with a hint of green in the bottle it looks slightly more turqouise but on the nail it is definitely more blue. Then I used MUA bright coral, I also used BarryM white and a no name silver polish.

Hi everyone,

I have an odd one for you today, we start this month with new colours for the Tri Polish Tuesday Challenge. The colours for this month are Blue Red and Yellow.

I am going to be up front about this I have no idea what I will do with this months colours I am well and truly stumped so you may see me doing some new types of nail art (to me atleast) so their might be some great things and their might be some not great. It will be interesting to see what I do though.

The polishes I have used are BarryM Matte Espresso, BarryM Cyan Blue W7 HipHop and a no name red polish.
