Tri-polish challenge: Dots and a gradient

Hello again!

I promised you a better post today, and here it is. This is my second of four manicures for the September tri-polish challenge. Once again, the colours I used were: For blue: Tip Top Nail Chic – Blue meets Green; for pink: Top Top Nail Chic – Pot-O-Berries; and for lilac – Essence Colour & Go – Absolutely Blue. I also used Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme wear in White On. (more…)

31 Day Challenge – Day 19: Galaxy Nails

Hi guys!

Yesterday I promised you galaxy nails with each nail a different colour. The nails were done, photographs were taken, and then… I forgot to copy the photos from my camera to my computer! However, I MUST show you some galaxy nails today, and I realised there was one thing I could resort to… I have some pictures of my first ever galaxy nails, from pre-blog days. They weren’t supposed to ever see the light of day, because they are a MESS. My cuticles are covered with polish, my attempt at glittery stars was a flop… but I guess they were ok for a first ever try. So today I will show you just 2 photos of my galaxy fail. The good news is I will still be able to show you the much improved galaxy nails 2.0 once this challenge is over! So, here we go: (more…)

31 Day Challenge – Day 18: Half Moons

Hi everyone!

The 31 day challenge has really been full of firsts for me. Since this is a young blog, practically everything I post is a first in some way for the blog, but many of the designs called for in the challenge I am actually doing for the first time as well. I guess my nail repertoire wasn’t that big! (more…)

September Tri-polish challenge Day 1

Hello again ladies!

What’s this? 2 posts in one day? Well, you may have thought posting every day for 31 days was enough for me, but you were clearly mistaken! Truth is, I’ve been waiting to do a tri-polish challenge since I started the blog almost a month ago, and I already had my first September mani done before I even decided to do the 31 day challenge, so now I’ve ended up doing both.

31 Day Challenge – Day 15: Delicate Print

Hi everyone!

For today’s delicate print nails, I was a bit stumped for ideas. But then I walked past a new little nail salon, and what did I see in their display but Liquid Sand polishes! :-D!!! I was over the moon since I haven’t seen anyone else stocking them in my area. Sadly, she only had 2 colours to choose from so far, but I scooped up What Wizardry is This? and first thing when I got home it went on my nails! Here are 2 coats: (more…)

31 Day challenge – Day 13: Animal Print

Hey everyone, and happy Friday the 13th!

First up, good news for all you Pinterest users! I haven’t used Pinterest much in the past, but yesterday I found to my amazement that a couple of you lovely ladies had pinned some of my nail designs. So, to make it easier, I’ve added a ‘Pin it’ button at the bottom of each post along with an option to follow me on Pinterest in the sidebar on my home page. Enjoy it and thanks for the love!

Today’s theme was animal print. I’ve never been a big fan of leopard print on clothing, but in small doses, like say… just on your nails, I can get behind it. Especially when it has the redeeming factor of funky colours! (more…)
