Hi! Somehow it's already been two weeks since my last 26 Great Nail Art Ideas mani (see my post for 'Spring Animals' here), so today I'm back with another one! This time the theme is 'Green Freestyle'. I thought this prompt would be a perfect opportunity to use my Painted Polish Pantone Greenery duo, which I hadn't yet got round to playing with. I decided to do a quick dotticure. Read on for more info!

Hello! Today I have a super quick swatch of Colors By Llarowe (CBL) 'Shimmer Me Timbers' to share with you. This is an older CBL that I recently picked up in a destash. I'm not going to lie, I bought it mainly for the name. I am obssessed with both puns and pirates, so I absolutely had to have it. It helps that it is a gorgeous colour too though! Read on for my swatch and more info!

Hello! Today I have a fun (and extra!) post for you. A couple of weeks ago, I was asked by Rebecca (@baby_mama_nails) to join a big nail art collaboration for Bethany from BNailedToPerfection's Birthday. We all decided to recreate one of her many fabulous manis, and put together a big collage for her special day. Read on for a closer look at my recreation, and to see if I did Bethany's original mani any justice!

Hello! Today I'm back with another 26 Great Nail Art Ideas mani, this time for the prompt 'Spring Animals'. This was another theme I made up as I went along - I only did them lastnight! I couldn't think of anything with spring animals on, and I didn't fancy freehanding. I ended up cheating by using the white rabbit from an Alice In Wonderland plate to create bunny nails. Read on for more info!

Hello! Today I have a quick swatch of Nine Zero Lacquer 'March 2016' to share with you. As mentioned previously, I am going to wear each of last years monthly polishes in the corresponding months throughout 2017.

Hello lovelies! I have a very exciting post for you. My gorgeous friend Lea (Leas Nails) used to own indie brand Charming Tale. She has recently reopened and rebranded as Sparklea Nail Polish. Sparklea's debut collection was based around one of Lea's favourite things, Harry Potter! Shockingly, I bought all six polishes on the opening night (31st January), and I'm only just sharing my swatches now - sorry Lea! Read on for my full swatches and more info!

Hello! Today I have February's MeeBox to show you. If you missed last month's 'Galentines' box, you can find my post here. This month the theme is 'Gatsby', an Art Deco theme inspired by the 1920's. I wasn't too sure what to expect but we did have a sneak preview of one of this month's brands, so I had a small idea of what was coming. Read on for my swatches and a closer look at everything inside!

Hellooo, I'm back! I will be catching up on all of my swatching shortly, but for today I have another 26 Great Nail Art Ideas mani to share. This time the prompt is 'Mixed Tape Mani'. Me, Kirsty (FairyTales Nails), and Bethany (BNailedToPerfection) teamed up to do triplet nails. We thought we'd go for a different spin on the theme, and went for actual music mixed tape nails instead of striping tape/vinyls etc. Read on for a closer look at my contribution and to see how I did it!
