Born Pretty Store - 2mm Silver Spikes Review

*2 products in this post were provided in exchange for a 100% honest review.
Hiya lovelies!  I recently received 3 more items from Born Pretty Store to review, and today I'm showing you the 2mm x 2.5mm silver spikes.  It's no secret that I love using my larger spikes now and then, but they're completely impractical, so I was looking forward to trying out these smaller ones..........

52 Week Pick 'n' Mix Challenge

 Hiya lovelies!  I'm back today with my mani for this weeks Pick 'n' Mix Challenge, and this week the prompts were "brown", and "book".  I decided to just go with the brown half of the prompt.  I only own a couple of browns, so didn't have many polishes to choose from, but I went with OPI - OPI Scores a Goal!, a lovely raisin cream with a stunning formula...........

A2Z - D is for.....Dark

 Hiya lovelies!  Sorry for the lack of posts around here of late, I'm still trying to get caught up on work stuff during my "holiday", which hasn't left a lot of time for nail painting.  Nonetheless, I had to make sure I put something together for this weeks A2Z.  We're up to D this week, and the prompt is Dark.  I had a few ideas for night time scenes in my head, but due to time constraints I had to think of something a lot simpler.........

A2Z - C is for Copy Cat

Hiya lovelies!  So, today we're up to C in the A2Z, and the prompt for this week is Copy Cat.  Now, I really really loved the outlined chevrons mani that Charlie did for A, (here) so I decided to copy her, but still trying to put my own spin on it.........

52 Week Pick 'n' Mix - Yellow & Animals (wild)

Hiya lovelies!  Today I have my mani for this weeks Pick 'n' Mix Challenge.  The prompts are "Yellow", and "Animals (wild)", so I decided to keep it simple, and went with some monochrome leopard print, with a splash of yellow thrown in............

52 Week Pick 'n' Mix - 3 shades of blue

Hiya lovelies!  So, I'm feeling quite a lot better now, and while I'm not totally 100% yet, I have the energy to actually do stuff, which is more than I can say for the last week or so.  So, I'm literally just squeezing in my mani for this weeks 52 Week Pick 'n' Mix Challenge, which has been sitting in a folder on my PC, waiting to be posted for ages.  (as you can tell from the fact my nails aren't nubbins here)   The prompts this week were animals (domestic), and/or 3 shades of blue.  I spaced out on ideas for combining both, so just did the 3 shades of blue.......

A2Z - B is for Bold

* Purchased by me
 Hiya lovelies!  Just a quick post from me today, as I'm still feeling pretty rough, but I didn't want to miss the A-Z, so here we are :D  We're up to B this week, and the prompt is bold.  I decided to go with some super sparkly animal print, with a strong colour contrast..............

Tuesday, 4 November 2014 mani's.

Hiya lovelies!  Today I have a quick round up of all the nail art I managed to post during October.  I didn't think there would be many at all this month, but actually there's a lot more than there was in September. So, let's get stuck in shall we?

MoYou Nails Review - Part 2

*Stamping plates and stamping polish were provided in exchange for a 100% honest review.
Hiya lovelies!  So, I was hoping to have this post up at least a few days ago, as you may have guessed from the Halloween-y vibe of the stripes, but tonsillitis is a cruel mistress, and I just haven't had the energy for large amounts of typing.  Still, better late than never, and there's still a mani here that isn't at all seasonal, so I hope you'll all forgive me this little seasonal faux pas.......

52 Week Pick 'n' Mix Challenge - 3 dark colours

*Purchased by me
Hiya lovelies!  So, today I have a second mani for this weeks 52 week pick 'n' mix challenge, this time choosing the "3 dark colours" prompt.  But before we get into that, lets address the tiny little elephants in the room - I'm back to rocking nubbins!  I had a really bad break on my middle finger, and there was no hope of patching it, since I don't know where the tip went, so I just had to cut them all down to match.  It feels, and looks, really weird, I haven't had nubs since about this time last year, but I've decided to just embrace them until they're stronger...........
