The Rainbow Nails Challenge - June 2020 Round Up

Hi lovelies! Today I'm back with another nail art challenge round up - this time for The Rainbow Nails Challenge. The Rainbow Nails Challenge was previously known as the Clairestelle8 Challenge, and is run by Alice Claire Nails (previously known as Clairestelle8) - confusing right?! Anyway, I was super happy to see Claire back on Instagram after a break, so couldn't say no to joining in for June's prompts. Read on for more info and to see all of my manis in full!

Hello lovelies! Today I'm back with some new polishes from UK indie brand Opulent Essences.

Barry M Wildlife Gellys

Hello lovelies! Today I have the recent Barry M Wildlife Gelly polishes to share with you. The Wildlife Collection consists of six limited edition polishes, released in support of the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (with at least 20% of the profits being donated to the foundation). I managed to pick up five when they first released a few months back, and finally got my hands on the orange recently. Read on for my full swatches and more info!

Nail Art Catch Up (May 2020)

Hello! Today I'm back with my nail art catch up catch up for the month of May. Similar to my swatch catch up post, I don't have too many 'new' manis to share with you. Most of the nail art I posted in May was for the nail art challenges I took part it, both of which I've already shared on here (see my posts for May's Glam Nails Challenge here, and Dimension Nails Challenge here). Read on for more info!

Swatch Catch Up (May 2020)

Hello! Today I'm back with my swatch catch up for the month of May. I don't have anywhere near as many polishes as I did in last months post, as I did a lot more nail art challenges, and swatched Danglefoot's new Fancy Feathers Collection (see that post here). However, I did post four other swatches over on my Instagram that have yet to be shared here. Read on to see each in full and for more info!

Dimension Nails Nail Art Challenge - May 2020 Round Up

Hello! Today I'm back with another nail art challenge round up. As well as completing the Glam Nails Challenge (post here), I also took part in the first ever Dimension Nails Nail Art Challenge. Dimension Nails is a new to me polish brand that is cruelty free, vegan, and donates 5% of their proceeds to animal charities. Based on all of this, it was only right that their first nail art challenge was all animal print themed! I love animal print nails, so couldn't resist. Read on for a closer look at all of my manis!

Glam Nails Challenge - May 2020 Round Up

Hello lovelies! Today I'm back with something new, a nail art challenge round up. I've watched other people take part in the Glam Nails monthly challenges for a while and wanted to join in - I just never thought I'd have the time to keep up. However, now that I've taken a small step back and reorganised how I'm blogging/posting, I thought I'd give it a go! I absolutely loved taking part for May, and I'm a bit sad it's over to be honest. It's a long post so get comfy!

Nail Art Catch Up (Up to May 2020)

Hi! Last week I posted a swatch catch up post, and that seemed to go down quite well. As promised, today I'm back with a similar catch up post for all of my nail art.

Hello! Today I'm back to catch you up on some of the polishes I've swatched recently, but not yet posted on here. All swatches included have already been posted on Instagram. Going forward, this is likely to be a monthly post - but for now, this is a big catch up with every polish up until the start of May. This is a bit of a long one, so read on and get stuck in!

Barry M Pastel Gellies

*AD - Gifted*
Hi, I'm back! As I briefly mentioned towards the end of my last post, I am not going to revert back to my previous blog schedule. Instead, I'm going to stick to posting when I have relevant content such as - collection reviews, any PR, occasional themed posts, and monthly swatch and nail art catch ups.

To kick me off, I have long overdue swatches of four Barry M pastel gellies released a few months ago. These were posted a while ago on my Instagram so if you follow me there, you may have already seen them. Read on for my full swatches and more info!

Easter Speckled Polish Swatches

Hello! I can't believe it's been nearly 8 months since I last published anything on here. Since having my little boy, time has gone so quickly and I just haven't sat down to write a blog post. I have been posting much more regularly on Instagram (you can find me @acertainbeccaa here), and have debated popping back over here for a while now - so here I am! 

I always love a speckled polish around Easter time, so I figured I'd start there and show you some quick swatches of the ones I've been wearing this year. Read on for my full swatches and more info!
