Autumny Water Marble

Hi everyone!

In case you’re wondering why I would do an autumny mani when here in South Africa it’s summer, well, I didn’t plan it that way! I just picked out some colours I thought would go well together and only once I was finished did I realise they were a pretty autumny combination 🙂 So for those of you in the Northern hemisphere – enjoy this as an end-of-autumn water marble!water-marble-lava-baker-street-beach-babe-1 (more…)

Milky Way Nails

Hi everyone!

Today I have some fun nails for you that I have dubbed my Milky Way nails. I did nail art that was similar to this a few times when I first started getting into nail art, and it was a big hit with Mr Boyfriend – he was actually the one who mentioned it looked like the Milky Way! I’ve made a few changes to those original ones but I figured it was finally time for my Milky Way nails to get onto my blog 🙂milky way nails galaxy nails sally hansen loves me not nails inc electric lane holographic top coat tip top rocky road star studs kkcenterhk born pretty store (more…)

Tape Mani Monday: Essence sand effect polishes

Hi everyone!

As you may be aware, Essence’s Sand Effect polishes recently made it to South Africa. There are 3 shades – a nude, a red, and a dark grey – and all 3 got added to my collection. Today I’ve done some nail art featuring the red, Me & My Lover.

Tape Mani Monday: Criss-Cross reciprocal gradient

Hello ladies!

Another Monday… another tape mani! This is by far the best thing about Mondays!

Back before I started the blog, I tried a simple reciprocal gradient with just straight lines. I was really proud of it at the time, but unfortunately I didn’t photograph it well and I didn’t clean it up, but I loved the concept so I decided to try it again, this time with criss cross lines 🙂criss-cross tape mani reciprocal gradient with tip top nail chic grape to meet you, essie in the cab-ana, sinful colors cinderella (more…)
