Swirly Stamped Skittlette

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a relaxing weekend. You may have noticed I’ve been on a bit of a stamping run ever since I got my new squishy stamper, and today is no exception… more stamping! I am loving the new squishy, and the more practice I get with it, the better I’ll get! The only problem with this plan is soon I’ll be wanting some more stamping plates 🙂sinful-colors-kissy-essence-stamp-me!-black-sinful-colors-black-on-black-glitter-gradient-la-colors-flashpop-pop-artsy-ilnp-i-love-nail-polish-birefringence-(h)-moyou-suki-collection-07-moyou-sailor-collection-03 (more…)

Spiderweb Stamping

Hi everyone!

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen me post a picture of my very first stamping attempt with my new squishy stamper. I didn’t post it on the blog because my broken nail wasn’t looking too good – but my first attempt with the new stamper looked great! Today I’m showing you the results of my second attempt. tip-top-nail-chic-kingfisher-armourplate-stamping-moyou-pro-collection-05 (more…)

Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge Day 14: Sweets

Hi everyone!

I am very excited to be halfway with this challenge! The prompts get even tougher in the second half though, so it might be a struggle!

ILNP Absolute Zero: Swatch and nail art

Hi everyone!

Today I have another ILNP post for you. This polish was one of the reasons that I decided to take the plunge and buy from ILNP in the first place – it’s a limited edition, only available as a gift if you ordered at least 3 polishes from the collection during the pre-order. Now, I’m not all that into polishes being limited edition or hard to find – but a free, gorgeous polish added to my order? That’s what sold me. ilnp-i-love-nail-polish-limited-edition-absolute-zero-swatch (more…)

December Tri-Polish challenge part 2

Hi everyone!

If you saw Tuesday’s post, you’ll know that this month the tri-polish challenge theme is gold and silver with colour accents. In this mani the gold and silver are more the accents, but these polishes stamp so perfectly that I couldn’t resist. I used Tip Top Gold Digger for the gold, and Armourplate for the silver. Today’s pictures are with the lightbox again, so enjoy 🙂december-tri-polish-challenge (more…)

December Tri-polish Challenge Part 1

Hi everyone!

The tri-polish challenge hasn’t been that popular the past couple of months, but I still enjoy it, so I decided to take part this month. The month’s theme is a little different – gold and silver with colour accents. A couple of my manis might be more colour with gold and silver accents, but it is a pretty open theme.

The colours I chose are: for gold – Tip Top Nail Chic Gold Digger, and for silver – Tip Top Nail Chic Armourplate. Both of these are foils which are amazing for stamping, which you’ll see with the later nails!

Firstly today I have a swatch of Gold Digger on its own. I recently built my own lightbox and got a second lamp to try and improve on my photos, and I am loving the results. Over the next few weeks you’ll see a combination of pre-lightbox and with lightbox photos, but hopefully from next year I’ll be able to take most of my pictures with the lightbox and you’ll see a gradual improvement in my pictures.
