The wonderful world of Indies…

Merry Christmas! (Christmas Mani Collage)

Merry Christmas lovelies! I hope you're all having an amazing day, filled with lots of food and festivities! I will probably be super busy here in the U.S at my Dads. I have a quick post for the day itself with a collage of all of my Christmas mani's from this year. I didn't manage to do as many as I hoped before leaving for my holiday - oh well! Read on for a closer look at each and for links to their original posts.

Uber Chic Christmas Plate - FairyTales Nails (Guest Post)

Hello my lovelies, and Happy Christmas Eve! I'm sure you're all getting super excited! Today's guest post is from Kirsty over at FairyTales Nails. Me and Kirsty have become amazing friends through our love of nail polish so I had to ask her to post for me. She has the Uber Chic Christmas stamping plate to share with us, including some gorgeous swatches. Read on for more!

Hello lovely people, I am so honored to be writing this guest post for my lovely friend Becca while she is away. Me and Becca are both completely mad about Christmas so I thought the best guest post to do for her would be a review on the fabulous Uber Chic Christmas plate. It is thanks to my good friend Becca that I even own this plate, she picked it up from me from the fantastic She Sells Seashells. This plate was £11 which I think is a fabulous price, it is great quality just what we have come to expect from Uber Chic.

Christmas Holly Nails (November Nailbox Polishes)

Helloo! Today I've taken inspiration from the nail design tutorials included in November's Nailbox (post here). One of them shows you how to create a holly leaf manicure. I decided to do a similar design but stamped holly leaves instead of freehanding them. I used all three polishes from the box, as the tutorials originally intend. As always, read on for more info!

Please ignore my lumpy little fingernail - it appears my teabag repair (post here) didn't go quite as well as I'd hoped!

Tea Bag Repair - I Broke A Nail :'(

Hello! Today I have a sad, unplanned post. I decided this afternoon that it'd be a great idea to clean the kitchen and wash up with only base coat on. Sitting down to do my nails after, I realised I had broken one, and on my swatch hand - how devastating! 

Normally I would deny it for a bit and then cut all of my nails down, but I didn't want to go away for Christmas with short nails. Instead I attempted a tea bag repair for the first time, and thought I'd let you know how it went. Here's a look at the break (my poor nail!). Read on to find out more!

Wintery Snowflakes (Models Own 'Asscher Blue')

Hello my lovelies. I hope you're all having a good weekend! Today I have another quick design for you, this time a bit more Wintery than Christmassy. I've seen a lot of people rocking snowflake designs and couldn't resist doing one myself. I decided to go for a bright baby blue with silver snowflakes to create a cold frosty look. Read on for more info!

Candy Cane (Peppermint?) Swirls

Hello lovelies! It's finally December and I'm feeling super super festive! I've got so many ideas for Christmassy nails - it's going to be a fun month! I decided to start with something simple and went for candy cane inspired swirls. After actually doing these I realised it's not a candy cane pattern, peppermint swirls maybe? Either way I think they're really festive and I love them! Read on to find out more.
