It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen does paper and today I’ve done some wrapping paper nails. Wrapping paper seemed like the perfect way to interpret this theme – fun, colourful and easy to turn into nail art. (more…)

I have a review of another Born Pretty Store stamping plate – plate BP-113 – to share with you today. I’ve become quite partial to the larger rectangular plates, but I liked the geometric images on this one so much that I decided to give it a try. I have two different looks to share with you using this plate today, so be sure to check out the full post! (more…)
I have a swatch of a gorgeous polish to share with you today. I recently discovered a Facebook group especially for Olive polish and just in time! Not long after I joined, I found out Polish ‘M was about to do a group custom. Polish ‘M has quickly become one of my favourite indie brands, and once I started seeing swatches in the group, I knew I had to get my hands on this one. Now there is a very important reason why I am posting this on a Saturday when I don’t usually do weekend posts: this beauty is only available until Monday, 24 April! There is a pre-order for this polish in the olive polish group which closes on Monday. Since I was one of the first to order this polish on the day the pre-order opened, I was lucky enough to get a bottle from the batch that had already been made for official swatches, so I’ve managed to get it swatched in time to share with you while it is still available. As far as I know, it will never be available again, so order it while you can! (more…)
It’s time for another installment of ‘get to know me’! If you were extra observant, you may have noticed that I didn’t post yesterday. As it happens, I’m having a particularly busy week in my ‘day job’ and I haven’t been able to finish all 5 looks for this week’s theme. I’ll probably be skipping another day as well. Let’s just call it a part of getting to know me!
I’ve dedicated today’s nail art to my beloved cat, Gizmo. Gizmo came into our lives a little over 2 years ago when my husband found him crying and hiding under my car, scared and hungry. He was still a baby, only about 2 and a half months old. Luckily, all he needed was some food and some love. He purred his way into our hearts and has stayed there ever since 🙂 (more…)
A couple of weeks ago, I shared half of the Polish ‘M Christmas Collection with you. Today I’m back with the second half, focusing on the cooler colours in the collection. Unfortunately, most of the polishes from this half of the collection are already sold out. Only one, Holly Jolly Christmas, is still available. Several from the other half of the collection are still available too, and all on sale at half price!
As I mentioned in the first post, this collection consists of ten polishes, each featuring a jelly base packed with coordinating and holo glitter. The collection is phenomenal for water marbling, and I have already shared not only one but two water marbles using this collection. (more…)
It’s Water Marble Wednesday! Your favourite time of the week (right?) and I have a really good one to share with you today! In fact, I almost didn’t post this today because I kept thinking it was Thursday! Luckily I decided to check my blog calendar and saw that I had this post planned.
We are having the craziest weather here the past couple of weeks. We’ll have a couple of really warm days, then it’ll be freezing again; snow and then a thunderstorm; and today there are blustering winds! I’ve always loved the warmer weather so I can’t wait until we’re properly into Spring. On to my bright, summery water marble! (more…)
It’s Water Marble Wednesday! I have really been enjoying getting back into water marbling and I’m glad I decided to bring the series back for a while. I used some shades from the Polish ‘M Christmas collection for last week’s marble, and I decided to make use of the same collection this week. They really do marble beautifully and I’m sure I’ll be reaching for them again and again! There are so many different colour combinations to be used from the collection, too – it’s a 10-piece collection so think of how many different combinations I can come up with 🙂 (more…)
