The Neverending Pile Challenge: Texture

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the Neverending Pile Challenge is texture. By now you probably know I love texture, and I love what I came up with for this theme! essence-sparkling-water-lily-sparkling-sugar-heart-explosion-hey-mister-sandman-baby-you're-a-firework-flash-powder-jeans-sugar-blue-jeaned-metal-sugar-skyfall (more…)

The Neverending Pile Challenge: Had To Have It, Still Haven’t Worn It!

Hi everyone!

I’m back with another installment of the Neverending Pile Challenge. Today’s prompt is ‘Had to have it, still haven’t worn it’ and I had one polish that fit the bill!

It’s no secret that I love textured polishes, but unfortunately, it’s not easy for me to get a hold of some of the textures I want most – including OPI’s liquid sands. So when I happened to see some in a far away salon one day, I had to pick up a couple of my favourites. One of these is Tiffany Case, and I can’t believe it hasn’t appeared on the blog yet!essence-colour-&-go-sparkling-water-lily-opi-liquid-sand-tiffany-case-catrice-crushed-crystals-call-me-princess (more…)

Easter Bunnies

Hi everyone!

I didn’t really plan on doing any Easter nails, but when I saw these adorable bunny butt nails on The Polish Playground, I couldn’t resist doing the same. I took a look at this youtube tutorial video she used by JanutyJuli and this was the adorable result:nyx-matte-sky-blue-essence-me-&-my-ice-cream-ben-&-cherries-ice-ice-baby-always-in-my-mint-icylicious-stripes-bunnies-sinful-colors-snow-me-white-black-on-black (more…)

Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge – Day 28: Art Nouveau

Hi everyone

It’s the FINAL DAY of the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge! I’ve made it, 28 days of artistically themed nail art for your enjoyment! I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my nail art along with some new-to-me techniques, and of course the nail art of all the other ladies taking part. Today’s theme is Art Nouveau. I didn’t really know what to do with that, but one of the ‘tips’ for this theme was lines so I decided to use that as my guide. nail-art-lines-striping-tape-nails-inc-leather-effect-noho-renaissance-cosmetics-rosie-osie-sinful-colors-charmed (more…)

Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge Day 8: Still Life

Hi everyone!

We’re into the second week of the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge and things are getting a little more complicated. This weeks themes are all about ‘art101’ and require a little more thinking than week 1! Today is still life and I LOVE what I came up with, I hope you do too!rimmel-london-metal-rush-pearly-queen-sinful-colors-black-on-black-striping-tape-charlie-revlon-allure-la-girl-sand-blast-sands-of-time-essence-colour-&-go-walk-on-the-wild-side (more…)

December Tri-Polish Challenge part 3: Christmas Wreaths

Hi everyone!

Well, it’s Christmas eve, so it’s definitely time for a Christmassy nail art. This month’s theme is gold and silver with colour accents, and for a gold polish I picked Tip Top Gold Digger and my silver polish is Tip Top Armourplate. I got the idea for these Christmas Wreaths from this post by Adventures in Acetone, although she used different colours and materials. Hers also look way neater and prettier than mine, but hey, I had fun! 🙂december-tri-polish-challenge (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.
