May has gone so fast that I almost forgot to swatch the corresponding polish - thankfully I've managed to sneak it in for the last day of the month! Read on for my swatch and more info.

Hello lovelies! Today I have my swatches of the Cupcake Polish Candy Land Collection to share. I don't often buy full collections, especially when it comes to indies, but I couldn't resist! I initially picked up four out of the six as the pink and purple were sold out on Rainbow Connection, then grabbed those two as soon as they restocked. Read on for full swatches and more info!

Hi! Today I have a fun post for you.

We decided on a graffiti mani using several of the images on Lina Nail Art Supplies Make Your Mark plate 01. Read on for a closer look at my mani and more info!

Hello! Today I have swatches of the Sparklea Nail Polish Carnival Collection to share with you. Originally released at the end of April, the Carnival Collection consists of six metallic neons.

Hello! As promised, today I have my nail art for April's 'Soft Scoop' MeeBox. If you missed my initial unboxing and swatches, you can find that post here. The pastel shades are perfect ice cream colours, and MeeBox even gave us dripping vinyls - so what else could I do except a dripping ice cream mani?! Read on to see how I created the look below.
