Mani and Lola - May 2019

Hello everyone! Today I have May's Mani and Lola box to share with you. It's been a long time since I've shared a Mani and Lola box - you can see last October's here. I unsubscribed while I was moving, although honestly I did get a few boxes before then that I never swatched! This months box contained two polishes and three nail care items. Read on for my full swatches and a closer look at everything inside!

For The Love Of Polish Box - March 2019

Hello! Today I have the March For The Love Of Polish Box to share with you. If you are new to the FLTOP box, it is a monthly box run currently run by Polished For Days, Pahlish, and a third guest brand each month. It is a US based box so I don't tend to pick it up often, but March's 'The Little Mermaid' theme won me over! The guest maker was Fair Maiden Polish. Read on for my full swatches and more info!

Mani Catch Up - April 2019

Hello! Usually, I've tried to post every mani I do here on my blog, but that doesn't always fit into my schedule - especially when I have PR to post or I do spur of the moment nail art when swatching a collection. Occasionally this means that a mani gets lost in my archives and never posted. So from now on, I'll round up those manis at the end of each month. Read on to begin with April's catch up!

Happy Easter!

Hello lovelies, and Happy Easter! I hope you've all got a lovely chilled day planned, with lots and lots of chocolate - I know I do! I wouldn't normally post on a Sunday, but I thought I'd pop a quick Easter mani up. I used a base of Nine Zero Lacquer 'Clover' (swatches of Jess's flakie crellies coming tomorrow), and stamped using Painted Polish 'Stamped in Chocolate' and Sugar Bubbles plate SB 044.

Barry M Silver Crackle Effect

Hello everyone! It's safe to say it's been a while. I have been busy with numerous big changes these last few months, including moving house (I'm now back in England, goodbye Wales!) and falling pregnant - surprise! Barry M were still kind enough to keep me on their PR list during my absence, so I have some catching up to do. I'm beginning today with the return of the crackle polish. Read on for my swatch and more info.
