Good evening everyone! I got quite a few new followers last night too after the #bbloggers Twitter chat, so welcome! Also to my regular readers, what do you think of the new icons above the page tabs below the header? And also, do you like the new blue date banner with prettier writing? Took me a while to do the html coding but eventually managed it! Phew. My nails have grown so much lately. It was less than a year ago I suddenly decided to just stop biting my nails. I also used to chew the skin around the nails…

Here’s a little blog post on my Christmas nails! I wanted to do something different, and my nail art skills aren’t up to much. So I decided to try a simple candy cane pattern! I used Knockout Red by 17 as a red base coat, and then applied some red glittery Models Own Scarlett Sparkle. Then on all of my nails except my middle finger, I used a white nail art pen that I picked up in Poundland.  I carefully tried to draw diagonal lines through the nails, some thin and some thick, (they’re not supposed to be even) to…

I won a competition last week which was a little bit short notice but seemed like fun! The prize was a ‘girls day out’ in London with up to 9 friends including transport. However, as it was very short notice when I was told I won the prize, everyone I knew already had plans or were working so couldn’t come with me! But luckily for me Terri said she’d like to come along and also bought a friend with her! So just the three of us set off to London early on a Saturday morning. The prize included all the…

Afternoon ladies! Today I want to show you my nails that I had last week. I used two new Barry M polishes that I bought a few weeks back; Raspberry and Amethyst Glitter. The rasberry looks a really nice burgundy red in the bottle, but when it comes out it’s actually a very dark pink. It’s still really nice though! It also goes on really nice and thick, and dries smooth. This is with only 2 coats, and it’s been really long lasting. The Amethyst Glitter has lots of tiny glitter particles in lots of different colours, mainly blues and…

Last week when I attended the Selfridges event, it was actually snowing in my part of the country. So as a theme I decided to try and do some simple snowy/icy nails! I used only two nail polishes; Barry M Blue Moon and Miss Sporty Transformers Sparkle Touch. I actually did my nails on the train to Birmingham which was a bit of a disaster as I kept smudging them.. but hopefully they don’t look too bad! Anyway this glitter nail polish is probably my favourite! It has tiny bits of silver, blue and purple glitter, and then also some…

I bought this Models Own Magenta Devine glitter polish, along with the Scarlett Sparkle, a year ago in the ASOS sale. I bought them both for about £2.50 each (normally £5), so a massive bargain. Even though I got them last year, I’ve only just remembered and decided to try one!  So my nails this week are coated with a bright pink called Mauve Flash by BeautyUK, and then my thumb and ring fingers have the Models Own Magenta Devine. It’s a gorgeous glitter polish, it’s pink, without being too Barbie and girlish. I wouldn’t normally go for such bold…
