Dorkface Inspired Nail Art

Hello! How are we all today? I sincerely hope you have had a much better day than me... I started the day by leaving my house, crossing the road and then slipping on the wet pavement resulting in a scratched foot, bruised knees, dirty trousers and half the skin taken off my elbow. Unfortunately I was on the way to the train station for my volunteering placement so I couldn't go back to bed and hide for the rest of the day, boooo. Anyhow, I'm now safely tucked up in bed finishing this post! This post/nail art has been a long time coming and I'm so pleased to have finally got round to doing it! I recently discovered the lovely and very talented lady that is Jemma, owner of Dorkface. Not only does she have a great blog and a beautiful instagram, but she also has an Etsy shop with amazing artwork and other fab bits! Way, way back in January (I said it was a long time coming) I asked her if she would be happy for me to try and recreate one of her paintings as nail art. Fortunately for me, she said yes!

Painted Polish - Road to Polish Con 2017

Evening lovelies! I am back from my little weekend holiday feeling both rested and exhausted...not sure how that works but hey! It was really nice to get away for a few days with my boyfriend, parents and my gorgeous doggie and we had a lovely time exploring a bit of Cornwall. My parents are actually staying for the rest of this week but I've come back to uni to carry on with dissertation work (and blogging!). This leads me on to today's post which features one of my favourite international indie brands; Painted Polish. I have two polishes to share with you from the Road to Polish Con series in the lead up to both the New York and Chicago Polish Con's last year. Once again, my good friend Becca ordered these for me alongside her stuff and I'm sooo happy she did!

Marble Nail Art

Hello lovely people! I hope you are all having a good week, but if you're not, just remember that it is almost the weekend! I'm actually going on a little weekend away in Cornwall with my boyfriend and my parents so I'm very excited. Although I'm not going to lie, the thing I'm most excited about is the hot tub that comes with our lodge! Anyway, before I leave I wanted to get some nail art done and I first chose a design that I haven't done for agesss. As you can probably guess from the title, it's a marble design!

Barry M - S/S 18 Molten Metal Collection

Hi all! Apologies for my missed post on Friday. I thought I could do swatches and write a post before my boyfriend came to visit but I was very much mistaken, woops! Today I'm sharing some polishes that I've waited a good few months to get my hands on and I'm super excited to have finally tried them. These are of course, the four new holographic polishes that form part of the Molten Metal collection from Barry M. Let's get right into the swatches shall we?

MoYou London - Minimal 05 Nail Art

Hi lovely people! Look at me go with this consistent posting! I am absolutely loving being able to do nails again. The problem is, I have so many ideas about things I want to do, I'm not sure what to do first! For now, I'm going to alternate between nail art and swatch blog posts so I can do a bit of everything and hopefully give you guys what you want too. This means that today is nail art day woohoo! I had a rummage through my stamping plates, picked some I really liked and then got my lovely boyfriend Alex to choose an image from one of them and the stamping polish colour. Read on to find out what I ended up with!

LynBDesigns - From the Ashes & The Violet of Shy-Town

Hello hello! I hope you've all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the sunshine (or avoided the sun if you're like me!). Today I have some swatches of polishes I received from my wonderful friend Becca of A Certain Becca Nails. These polishes are from LynBDesigns, a brand from Michigan in the US. LynBDesigns is completely new to me so I was excited to see what the polishes were like. Read on to find out more!

Lina 4 Seasons - Summer 02 Plate Review

Evening everyone! I hope your first day of June has been slightly less chaotic than mine has. Had a horrendous train journey back to uni earlier with both trains being delayed, last minute platform changes (not ideal when you're carrying a heavy suitcase), busy carriages with no spare seats and broken air con! I mean seriously, what more could have gone wrong?! I finally made it back to Plymouth and got right into some nail art as I was so excited! I decided to use a plate that I received last year from Nail Art UK and absolutely loved the look of but never had a chance to use. It may have taken a while but I got there eventually!
