Hi! Today I have my New Year's Eve nails to share with you. I've had it in my mind for a while that I wanted to use Opulent Essences 'Devils Gold' for New Years, so I created my mani with matching colours (black and gold). I also knew I wanted to add fireworks. Here is what I ended up with. Read on to find out more!

Hi! Today I have a quick wintery snowflake mani for you, over a base of Glisten & Glow 'Lavender Liqueur'. This was a Polish Con limited edition that I actually didn't manage to get on the day (although I did get others!), but luckily Rainbow Connection received some of the leftover stock. I 'accidentally' bought myself it while Christmas shopping, and couldn't resist adding some snowflakes. Read on for more info!

Hello lovelies! I hope you've all had an amazing Christmas! Today I have swatches of the Nails Inc Alice & Olivia Christmas Cracker Set to share with you. This was released as a gift set last Christmas (2015) for £25. I picked it up when it was reduced to just £5 back in August. I then waited patiently until this Christmas to open them up. There are six crackers in total, each containing one polish (5 minis and one full size). Read on for full swatches and more info!

Hi lovelies! I'm back with another 26 Great Nail Art Ideas mani. This time the theme is 'Pastel Christmas', which I think is a great idea! I always have so much fun doing non-traditional seasonal themes. I hadn't yet done a snowman mani this year, so pulled out my Uberchic Beauty Christmas plates and came up with this.

Hi lovelies! I'm back today with guess what? Another Christmas mani! This time I have stamped some candy canes over another Vegan Beauty Cosmetics polish. I've been really loving the shimmery foily finishes of them all of this month. Read on for more info!

Hello! It's finally what I like to call 'Christmas week', yay! Unfortunately I am still at work this week but come Friday I'll be free! Today I have a Christmas tree mani to share with you, inspired by a similar one created by Bethany from BNailedToPerfection (see Bethany's mani here). I used the same stamping images as Bethany, but different polishes. Read on to find out more!

Hello! Today I have another Christmassy mani to share with you, this time with reindeer. I have quite the reindeer obsession at this time of the year - I have a little family of them sat next to my Christmas tree - so I had to put some on my nails! I also attempted double stamping for the first time, something I've been meaning to do for a while. Read on to find out more!

Hello! Today I have another Christmassy mani to share with you. I recently purchased both Uberchic Beauty Christmas plates 01 and 02 from Nail Artisan, and I love them! One of the first images to catch my eye was the little gingerbread men on plate 01. I've seen plenty of manis created with it already, but I just couldn't resist doing my own. Read on for more info!

Hello! Way back in September, I posted swatches of two new Barry M polishes exclusive to Boots (post here). Today I am back with the two Superdrug exclusives, 'Twinkle Twinkle' & 'Nutcracker'.

A little bit random, but this is also my 200th blog post - yay!

Hi lovelies! I'm back with another 26 Great Nail Art Ideas mani, and this time the prompt is 'Christmas Preparations'. When I read the theme, I immediately thought of pulling out the decorations and putting up my Christmas tree. I did have a couple of different ideas of how to set my mani out, but this is what I settled with in the end. Read on for more info and to see how I did it!

*Press Sample*Hello! It's officially December now, so I can finally get away with Christmas nails (not that I haven't snuck a couple in already!). I was recently sent some more items from Born Pretty Store to review, among which was a cute robot stamping plate and a gold stamping polish. I paired these two together and tried my best to make it Christmassy! Here is what I came up with. Read on for more info!
