GOT Polish Challenge – Pink

Yes I’m back! Back in….. errr, pink actually 🙂

I have a nice red scar running down the side of my hand, but with some awkward posing and strategic placement of my watermark, I think I can blog again now!

So you’ve probably already heard about the GOT Challenge by the Crumpet? Well, the idea is to use an old (+1 year) polish from your stash and do a nail art every Thursday. This week the theme is pink, so I grabbed Designer Satin by China Glaze. I’ve had this polish since May 2012 – when UK suppliers were still allowed to send polish overseas. I used to order from Venus Nail Supplies – but they can’t ship overseas anymore 😦

Autumn Ombré Nail Art

Happy Monday ladies!

I hope your week is going well! Mine sure is, we’re both (my bloke and I) off work all week, so we had a lazy morning, then went out to wander around some shops this afternoon. I found a nice, recently opened, hair & manicure supply shop which had some nice stock, so I’ll be going back there again soon! Shame that, as a blogger, I don’t qualify for the pro discount.

Dragonfly Nail Art

Hey girls! I hope everyone’s having a nice weekend?

I am – but why do lazy weekends go by so fast, huh?

Anyway, in the spirit of the lazy weekend, I dragged up a nail art from the archives to show you tonight 😉 this was originally intended to be a tutorial for a guest post, but it got kind of disappointing feedback, so I put it on the everlasting back burner, haha

#31DC2013 – Green Nails

Please note that I no longer recommend Bondi New York as a company. For a full explanation, please see this post.


I’m back ! We had a great time in Normandy. The weather on Tuesday morning was very very foggy, and pretty cold, but from lunchtime onwards and all day yesterday, it was beautiful! I think I might even have tanned a little 🙂

We stopped off in Honfleur on the way up, and then we stayed in the most gorgeous little hostel overnight, and spent all day at Mont St Michel. It’s still quite busy at this time of year, but wasn’t too bad. Of course, I got some photos to show you, they’ll be up as soon as I’ve caught up on my emails 🙂

I see that I have a few new followers! Hi guys 🙂 Feel free to comment and say hi ! I know I’m not so great at replying to comments at the moment, I do read every single one though! And you can always shoot me an email if you’re worried I’ll miss your comment.

On to the nails ! I decided to keep it simple and non-freaky this time !

#31DC2013 – Yellow Nails

It’s yellow day !

Excuse this scheduled post, I’m off work this week so we’re swanning up to Mont St Michel – I’ll try to get some nice photos to share!

I never know what to do on yellow day ! I really only have one ‘real’ yellow nail polish (which is running out…) – Solar Power by China Glaze. For some reason, I couldn’t stop thinking about alligators. And I don’t think I could have pulled off a yellow alligator mani, so I went with eyes… Which turned into cats eyes.

I know, that’s a bit out there! But it actually looks pretty cool – this is definitely one I’ll be keeping for an accent nail sometime 😀

#31DC2013 – Orange Nails

So I’ll be posting twice on a lot of days to keep up with this challenge 🙂 I hope no-one minds!

I would have loved to do my fox nails again, but I figured it would be a cop-out to recreate a nail art that I’ve already done before! So for the 31-Day Challenge, I decided to try a dry marble.
