Today I'm finally sharing my picks from February 2018's Sugar Rush month. Read on for my full swatches and a quick look at a few nail care bits I also purchased!

Hello! As some of you may know, I attended Scratch Magazine's 2019 Scratch Stars Awards lastnight, as I was a finalist in the Best UK Nail Blogger category. I couldn't go to a nail awards party without doing my nails, so opted for a strong silver holographic with some subtle purple stamping to match my purple dress.

*AD - Gifted*Hello! Today I have a look at two Korres Gel Effect polishes, thanks to Sparkle PR. I did swatch two others from the gel effect range ('Berry Addict' and 'Watermelon') nearly a year ago here. Each polish is intended to be chip resistant and last up to 10 days. They are also infused with almond oil, amino acids, and pro-vitamin B5 for moisture, nourishment, and strength. Read on for my full swatches and more info!

*AD - Gifted*Hello! Recently, the lovely Harpreet over at Nailbuff reached out to me to find out what I thought of their nail polish app, and also offered to send me a few goodies. I used Nailbuff way back when it first launched a few years ago before I even started blogging. I hadn't visited it in a while, so I was more than happy to revisit and see how things have changed! Read on for more info and a quick mani!

Hello! Today I have some nail art to share with you. This idea came to me out of nowhere and it kept popping into my brain, so I figured I'd just sit down and do it! I've really been liking doing some more spur of the moment nails recently instead of just simple stamping over polishes I'm swatching at the time. This time around it resulted in a sponged chevron mani. Read on for more info!
