Earthy Nail Polish - Swatches & Nail Art

*AD - Gifted*
Hi lovelies! Today I have a couple of polishes to share with you from UK brand Earthy Nail Polish. This is a new brand to me personally, and is the sister brand of Mother Nailture (another brand I have yet to try). All of their polishes are plant based, of natural origin, bio-sourced, and completely vegan. They also have the cutest (and sustainable!) bamboo caps that are naturally antibactieral and antimicrobial. I was sent three polishes to have a play with - read on for my full swatches, some nail art, and more info!

April's challenge had a few good Easter prompts which suited my recently purchased Clear Jelly Stamper plates perfectly - so of course I joined in! Read on for a closer look at my manis for each prompt.

Cotton Bag Co. - The Selfie Bag

*AD - Gifted*
Hello lovelies! Today I have something a bit different for you. I was recently contacted and asked if The Selfie Bag by Cotton Bag Co. would be something I was interested in. The Selfie Bag is a fun printed canvas bag with a handy little photo kit inside. While this is geared mainly towards taking selfies (which I'm not one for if I'm honest), it is perfect for photographs in general. I have been thinking a bit lately about how to improve my nail photography, so it was definitely something I was interested in having a play with. Read on to see the full contents of The Selfie Bag, and some of my thoughts!

Hello! It's time for my first blog post of 2022! I haven't blogged quite as much as usual in the past few months, but I am hoping return to more regular posts, including both swatch and nail art catch ups, collection swatches, and all the goodness I've neglected to share over here. To start us off, I'm here with my swatches of the China Glaze Holiday 2021 Jewels Royale Collection. I was tempted by these for a while, finally caving and grabbing the whole collection from Nail Polish Direct. Read on for my full swatches and more info!
