40 great nail art ideas Glitter topper or Flakie

Hello everyone again,

This week I have for you and aztec mani with a glitter topper. For the aztec theme I did an orange and red gradient with an aztec pattern stamped over the top. I used BarryM Blood Orange, Catrice Cahrleston Fame for the gradient. I used Moyou Pro XL plate 06 and BarryM Gold Foil Effect to stamp. For the glitter topper I used a Nails Inc polish I got years ago as a magazine freebie and it doesn't have a name.

Pink Zebra NET Awareness Mani

Hi everyone,

Todays post is in support of my friend Emma From Ems Little Corner. Last year her and her hubby were going through a lot health wise and this is what this blog post is about. 

If you are wondering what this post is about it is about neuroendocrine cancer awareness day. 
The best way Emma has described it to think zebra because this isn't usually picked up or recognised it can hide as something normal. So you might see a horse which has stripes or is it a zebra?  

Emma I hope I am making sense and kind of explaining it in simple terms. 

Now though because some one thought zebra. Things are on the up and getting better which I am so glad for. I can't imagine what they have been through but we are doing this to make people aware of what this is and just to get the word out there.

Here is my mani. My pink zebra print mani.

All of these are hand drawn zebra stripes granted some look worse than others but I gave it a go. 

40 Great Nail Art Ideas- Black & White

Hi All,

Eeek meant to post this last week but just didn't sorry.

I have got a pure black and white mani today. I have used Chevrons from Shesellsseashells 

I got quite a few people asking how I did this and as soon as I explained to people about vinyls I tended to loose them.

40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Orange, Purple and Green


I have done a waterfall mani for you this week with orange, Purple and Green. I have used Desert Valley, BarryM Tangerine, Kiko 330 and for a little contrast Essence Baby Baby, Oh.

I used Rainbow Connection ZAP! to keep my cuticles clean doing this and it helped so much. I did these the day before I went away for a short break recently so I only managed to get the pictures whilst I was away.

40 Great Nail Art Ideas – Teal

Hello again,

I know it has been a few weeks since I last did a post. I am excited to announce I am taking part in the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas. I chose to do the one mani a fortnight. I will do more if I can but I am just starting to get back into blogging again and I am hoping to get into some kind of routine.

Todays' Prompt is teal. I got the prompt of water colour. Now I've never done a water colour mani and I thought about doing it with maybe white and teal on a nude nail but just decided to do a white base and put teal on top and attempt it.

And this is what I created.......

Indies and new polishes I love


I thought this post would be a good idea with all that has been going on with Mentality, Seche and Nubar over the last couple of weeks. I bought some indie nail polish a few weeks ago and wanted to share this with you as I've barely stopped wearing them.

I honestly can't believe this has happened and I am shocked this has happened to fellow bloggers. I will not be commenting on who did what, what might have caused it. All I know is we all need to know how this happened so we can make sure this doesn't happen again. The sooner this is done the better.

Now on with more positive things.

The Nail Polish.

Guest Post - Ali at Fixin to faff

Hey y'all!

I'm Ali from Fixin To Faff, and I'm absolutely delighted to be here to visit on Roz's blog!   I wanted to share with you a pretty and fun look using nail stamping, a detail brush, and some rhinestones!

Nail art using a unique quatrefoil pattern design, stamped in lavender chrome finish over a shimmery purple base.

This look begins with three coats of China Glaze Choo-Choo Choose You, which is a gorgeous dark plum shimmer that shifts into some deep copper and green tones as well.  It's absolutely stunning, and was definitely the highlight of the All Aboard Collection for Fall 2014.  On its own, it's beautiful, but I wanted to play with those shifting tones a little bit, so I chose to stamp over it with Essie Nothing Else Metals, a lovely lavender foil finish.

I chose this unique quatrefoil pattern from Vivid Lacquer's plate VL031 and applied it over all my nails.  To finish, I created an accent nail on my ring finger by outlining it with Nothing Else Metals and then adding a chain of varying-sized clear rhinestones over the top.  Once I was done, I sealed everything with Seche Vite, my favorite quick-drying top coat.

Huge thanks to Roz for letting me come show off my nails, and thank you to all of you for having a look!

Taking a rest

Hi all,

I'm going to explain what will be going on with my blog over the next couple of months.

Over the next couple of months it's going to be really busy for me and I already feel like I'm not giving the blog my all at the minute.

I've got my wedding this year,  I'm going to be trying to shed some weight for my wedding as well and work is ramping up.
I feel like I'm spreading myself a little thin so I want to concentrate on me and  I think it would be unfair to try and just phone the blog in so I'm taking a break from blogging, at least until I've got a routine back and am able to properly plan things out.

Also my nails if you follow me on instagram,you will have seen how badly my nails have been damaged over the last couple of weeks and I want to repair them and look after them.  I am going to still be taking part jn the challenges and posting them on instagram but not doing blog posts, I don't have the time to spend writing blog posts.

I hope to be back at some point I just don't have a time plan at the minute. I hope that you do still decide to follow me because I will be doing my nail art and practising techniques I may go a week without posting something but when I do it will include whatever I have missed.

I've got a couple of blog posts coming up over the next week from a few other bloggers. If you read this and would like to do a guest blog post, just drop me a line to

Hi guys,

Today I am combining both posts that I had planned on doing for this manis'. Simply because of time.

So for these manis on the first one I used BarryM Espresso, China Glaze Tree Hugger, Essence Lets get lost, BarryM Tangerine and Catrice LE Featherstons Fame.

For the 2nd mani I used NYC Blue Sky and Nails Inc Notting Hill Gate.
