52 week pick and mix challenge 80's

Hi everyone,

Today is another installment of the 52wpnmc and this weeks theme is 80's I decided I would do something I loved growing up as a kid and I'd do a mani inspired by a TV show.

That TV show is married with children. I used to love this show and I'd sit there on a night laughing my head off even as a young very young child. Have you watched it? Let me know if you did because I'm sure someone will know know the TV show.

52 week pick and mix challenge 70s


Hi everyone, 

I have for you today my first properly successful water marble.  Now I was born in the late 80's so I don't have much of an idea what patterns
were in the 70's, so I googled it and an image came up that was all sort of colours mixed together and I decided to try a watermarble.

#52 week pick and mix challenge week3 part 2

Hi guys,

I am squeezing this mani in on a Friday night. I have no real order to my posts at the minute but if you would like to see them in some sort of order let me know in the comments below I don't mind any constructive critisism :)

Todays mani on the 52wpnmc if matte or texture I combined them. I am sad to say it looks rank just not nice at all and that was me just being lazy I think. I was experimenting as well at the same time The polishes I have used are Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 500 Razzle-berry and BarryM Waikiki.

Mani Swap with Rachel from The Imperfect blog

Hi everyone,

Me and rachel decided to do a mani swap after we did twinsies before. If you want to have a look at what we did click here.

We have decided to pick a mani from each others blog and recreate it. I picked something from a while back it is over a year ago and it is a blue and silver Leopard print mani. I didn't read the full blog post until a couple of days ago and I did the mani about 1 week ago I'd seen the pictures and I loved the colours.

Here is the blog post and below is the picture that I saw that caught my eye.

52 week pick and mix challenge week 3 60's

Hi everyone,

Todays' theme for the 52 week pick and mix challenge is 60's. I had a rough idea of what I wanted to do but until I started searching and asking people on Facebook about the 60's it didn't all click. I wasn't born until 1989 so it's a but before my time so hence the facebook and googling.

I keep forgetting which way round to do my colours as in oldies and untried and tri polish.  Today I used Color Club Poetic Hues as the base, BarryM Blood orange and Catrice Peach and NYC Leather and Mink.

Pastel Mani

Hi again,

I am back again. I have for you today something I did that got featured in the Coloristiq promo video. They are a new brand that is going to be launching in the next couple of weeks. What they will be doing is basically like a nail polish version of Netflix you can rent full size bottles of nail polish. You can try out the new collections from various brands such as OPI, CHINA GLAZE and MORGAN TAYLOR see if you like them you have to return the bottles but it gives you an idea if you like the polishes rather than buying a bottle you don't like for full price. If you want to have a quick look at their website CLICK HERE

Anyway onto the nail art. I have gone dotty crazy these last couple of weeks but I have had this one brewing for a while. I was inspired by a cup at work haha. I tried to recreate the pattern it didn't go exactly to plan but I like the way it did come out.

The polishes I used were Color Club poetic Hues, BarryM atlantic Road, Sally Hansen 409 Good to Grape, Nail Inc Udderly shocking pink and BarryM GreenBerry.

52 Week challenge Week1 part 2

Hi all,

This is the 2nd prompt of this 52 week challenge Pick n Mix. The prompt for today is Teal. I only have one teal polish so my choice wasn't that hard really. The teal I have is the BarryM Teal and I decided I couldn't just have it plain old teal.

It needed a bit of jazzing up so I had a trawl through my draws of polishes and upon trying to destash I found I had a few dupes and then I looked again OK so Nails Inc have 2 Holographic polishes one is called Abbey Road and the other is called Electric Lane. They look exactly the same exept Electric Lane is called a Holographic top coat and Abbey Road is a Holographic Polish. Now I want you to have a look at the bottles and you tell me which is which because I can't tell a flippin' difference.
