Charming Tale Fairest Of Them All Collection

Today this post is about Charming Tale's Fairest Of Them All Collection, just in case the title wasn't a big enough clue! Charming Tale is a new UK indie brand based in South-West London and is owned by @leasnails on Instagram. I've actually had these polishes for a few weeks, just never got a chance to swatch them but hey, I got there eventually.

First up is Mistress Of All Evil, a deep purple creme with silver shimmer.

Coloured Ladybirds

This post and mani only really exists thanks to the wonderfully talented @prettyquirkyuk on Instagram. She also has a great blog which you can find here. Basically she did these amazing ladybird nails and as soon as I saw them I fell a little bit in love so hopped onto the MoYou London site, ordered the plate (and one other, shh!) and had a go myself!

Subtle Grey Florals

Started off this post saying I didn't want to get behind with posts and then didn't finish I am two days later haha! This mani was actually kind of unplanned and was just me playing at half ten or something the other night night because I bought a new stamper. After hunting through Sammy from The Nailasaurus' blog to find out what stamper she uses, I bought a double ended Konad stamper for about £5.50 from Amazon and at the moment I'm pretty happy with it!

Crime Scene Nails

Woohoo so today we have my first ever Halloween nails! I went for something simple to start with and got the idea for the design from @banicured_ on Instagram although she used red acrylic paint and I used nail polish.

Autumn Trees

Today I finally have a mani for the new season! This was inspired by Cristie from knightowlnails on Instagram and if you like nail art and don't follow her then you definitely should! She particularly does a lot of great stamping which I am very jealous of. 

Return in Purple

Well...I think it's safe to say my second year of uni is very busy! I wish I could do my nails and blog more than I currently am but unfortunately that just isn't an option right now. I'd like to be optimistic and say things will settle down but considering I have January exams I don't think that will happen. Maybe I'll just have to figure out some super organisation thing so I can do everything I want in the limited time I have... Anyway I digress, I finally have some nail art for you! Granted it's only two accent nails that have been stamped but that's better than nothing right?

Danglefoot Polish Haul

Has it really been so long since my last post?! You can tell uni has gotten to me already... I'm only a few weeks in and already have so much to do! Obviously that means what I'm going to do is paint my nails, take photos and then do blog posts haha! 

Anyway, so recently Hayley from Danglefoot Polish reopened her shop and had restocked some old polishes and added some new collections which was very exciting! Honestly, before she opened, I went through Instagram looking at all the polishes and made a list of what I was going to buy. I chose Prince Charming from her old Once Upon A Time collection as I'd had no money to buy it when she first released it (and it was purple and sparkly), two out of three polishes from a new limited edition trio and five polishes from the new Phantom of the Opera collection. (Find Hayley's shop here and her Instagram here)
