Ard As Nails #Hashtag Collection

Evening everyone! Well... evening if it is evening for you haha. Today I've got some swatches of a brand new collection from Ard As Nails. I've got a fair few Ard As Nails polishes now and I love all of them so the bar was certainly high for these. Also, I have just realised I haven't actually got many on the blog which is kinda crazy as one of my all time favourites is from Kat! Anyway, onto the #Hashtag Collection...

First Ever Successful Watermarble!

Hi guys, hope you've all had a good day. The mani in this post is definitely a proud moment for me because as the title suggests, I watermarbled! And not just did the whole thing in the water but actually got it on my nails in a way that looks semi good. I think so anyway!

Rainbow Gradient Nails

Helloo, another Monday, another post! Hope you haven't had a terrible start to the week but if you have, just remember the day is almost over. If you're like me then you may be watching/have already watched Game of Thrones! Anyway, onto the nails...

Princess Nail Lacquer Swatches & Review

Hey everyone! Now I know I posted yesterday but today's post is long overdue and I felt bad even leaving it until tomorrow so here we go! You may have seen around that there is a new UK indie brand on the scene called Princess Nail Lacquer. PNL is run by a lovely lady called Ashleigh and she opened at the beginning of May so when I say new, I mean new! Like most UK indies, Ashleigh's polishes are 5-free, cruelty free and they are also vegan which is obviously great. If you're already interested then you can find her shop here and her Instagram page here

 There are already a wide range of polishes to choose from including holos, glitters and cremes so definitely something for everyone. After spending weeks leading up to the release date oo-ing and ah-ing over all her polishes on Instagram, I decided to get The Space Adventures Collection. Really I wanted them all but y'know, kinda limited by money.

Pond Mani with Barry M Lolly Gloss

Hi all, today I've got some very simple nail art to show you using a polish from the recent Barry M releases. I've only swatched them (which you can see in my blog post here) and used them for this mani but I already really love the Lolly Gloss polishes!

Turquoise Stone Nails

Hey guys! Today I've got some more nail art to share with you and it's definitely one of my favourites I've done recently. I'm sure the vast majority of the nail artists in the world (although I still don't call myself a 'nail artist' haha!) have done some sort of variation of stone nails before so I decided that it was my turn. My main source of inspiration for these came from this mani created by the lovely Kat from KLEnails. You can find her blog here and her Instagram page here.

A England Cathy & Harmony in Mauve

Hey everyone! Today I'm sharing my very first A England polishes with you and I know it's the beginning of the post but I can safely say I love these! A England is another UK indie (indpendent) brand and I've been looking at their polishes for a while. I was oh so tempted when the Emily Bronte collection came out but I resisted. Until now...

Rainbow Leopard Print

Hello! How's everybody's week been? Sorry I'm a couple of days late but I did say I was busy now so there's not really a lot I can do about that. Anyway, today I'm sharing some multi-coloured leopard print nails. Haven't done leopard print for a while so I thought it was about time I did some again.

Pinking Out Loud Roses

Hey guyss! Today's post is all about a mani I shared on Instagram a couple of weeks ago. I loved them and a lot of people of Instagram and Facebook seemed too as well so I'm really pleased! These were sort of inspired by someone else's nails I saw that were pink with white stamping but I feel terrible because I never took note of who it was...sorry!

Barry M Molten Metals Swatches & Review

Hello, sorry I'm posting this a day late again! I ended up spending the day with a friend yesterday and didn't have a chance to write the post. Continuing from my last post, I have another new collection from Barry M to share with you! This is yet another brand new range called Molten Metals; a set of four metallic chrome effect shades.

Barry M Lolly Gloss Nail Paint Swatches & Review

Happy Wednesday everyone! I know I say this for basically every post but...I've got something exciting to share today! Yet another new collection has been released from Barry M (Yes another one!). This time it is a set of four limited edition polishes with a sheer jelly gloss finish and raspberry and strawberry scents! When I first saw the sneak peeks of these on Barry M's snapchat I wasn't convinced because they looked very dark and not at all summery. Turns out, I couldn't have been more wrong!

Forever Green

Hi everyone! I know I'm posting two days in a row but it is Mani Monday after all. It's also a Bank Holiday today so I hope everyone's had a lovely day. I've spent the day playing with nail polish (as usual) and watching The Big Bang Theory so I've had a great time! Anyway, onto the nails for this post...

Barry M Coconut Infusion Nail Paints Swatches & Review

Hello! Today I'm sharing five of the nail paints from Barry M's new Coconut Infusion range. There are nine polishes in the range all together; five bright colours and four nudes. I chose the five coloured polishes as I've said many a time before that I'm not really a fan of nude polishes on me so I didn't want to waste my money. They do look great on other people though! The polish contains coconut water and coconut oil so supposedly "gently hydrates and nourishes nails while delivering a beautifully smooth, gel-like glossy manicure". I can't say much about the care that it did for my nails as I didn't have it on long enough but it definitely had a glossy finish as you'll see in the photos below!
