Space Collection - Creative Shop Stamper Review

I have something super exciting to show you guys today. Remember when Creative Shop brought out their first stamper? I think they revolutionised stamping, or they certainly did for me. Well they've knocked it out of the ball park again with their new Space collection stamper. I was so honoured when Oksana asked me if I would like to review the stamper for her. I just had to jump at the chance!


Meebox UK - Ice Queen - Swatches and review

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas guys! I'm back today after a few days break with swatches and review of the recent Meebox, Ice Queen. If you didn't already know Meebox is a monthly nail subscription box that includes three polishes and a few added extras like nail treatments, nail stickers, glitter etc. The extras in this box a pot of glitter, mini nail file and some water decals. 


HPB Presents-Santa Claus is coming to town! CBL gradient with stamping

It's time for another Hobby Polish Blogger link up and this months theme is Holiday/Winter. 
So tomorrow is the day when the big guy in red comes down our chimney's to drop off all the presents. I think most of us hope for a white Christmas but it looks like my nails are the closest to white Christmas that we will get this year! They are a tribute to Santa's journey while he flies through the skies to visit all the good boys and girls.



Christmas Competition mani - MoYou London

It's a bit odd posting on a Sunday for me but I couldn't wait to show you the mani I created from MoYou London's Christmas competition. You have to create a mani and a Christmas ornament/decoration to match.


Guest post on A Certain Becca Nails

Hey guys. I have done a guest blog today on the lovely Becca's blog, A Certain Becca Nails , while she is on holiday. Click here to go read about this mani I created.

Bye for now x


CBL Blue, Blue Christmas - MoYou London stamping

Well it's certainly a Blue, Blue, Christmas without my lovely long almonds, but with this baby on my nails it does help ease the pain! I absolutely love this colour and it's only fitting to stamp it with some Christmas theme images right?!


Christmas tree nails - Smitten Polish Whisky in the Jar - Uber Chic

Happy Friday guys. Gosh this week has gone fast which means it's closer to Christmas..yey! I just love this time of the year especially as I can do as my Christmas manis as I like! I did a Christmas tree theme on my nails as I used a green base with some lights and baubles.


Christmas Nail Wraps - BPS review

Good old Cindy hand is on the blog today. The reason for this is because I wanted to see how easy these Christmas nail wraps were to apply (1 Sheet Christmas Snowflake Nail Wraps Flower Full Nail Sticker- 14 patterns). Turns out they were easy but not easy to pose with Cindy!


Uber Chic Winter Nails - Polished by KPT

I can't get enough of the Uber Chic Christmas plate. There's not an image on it that I don't like so you will be seeing more Christmas manis, you're probably going to be sick of them!


40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Water marble and Glitter topper

I don't tend to do water marbles often as I'm not very good at them but this weeks Crumpets Nails Tarts theme was glitter topper/flakie and my pattern prompt was water spotting/water marble. So I gave water marbling another try but used a different technique.


First Chrismas mani of 2015 - Snowflakes and Barry M

My first Christmas mani of 2015! I love Christmas and especially snowflakes. Born Pretty Store recently sent me some lovely items for review which included a Christmas theme stamping plate and a gorgeous blue metallic stamping polish. So I teamed them together for this Christmas mani.


Double Stamping Tartan - Dark Metal Lacquer - Wishmaster

I really like tartan but I never feel like I suit the traditional red colours, but I love teal tartan! I was searching online for teal tartan scarf and found a lovely one and had to use it as inspiration for a mani.


F.U.N Lacquer - Frost(H)

Oh my I have a beauty to show you guys today! I loved this polish so much that I couldn't stamp anything on it as it was just so stunning on it's own. This is the amazing Frost(H) from F.U.N Lacquer which is the same as the original Frost but (H) has a perfect amount of fine and micro holographic glitter added to it.


Madam Glam Swatches and Review

Madam Glam recently contacted me to see if I would like to review some of their products. They sent me four nail lacquers and one colour change gel polish and they arrived in a lovely box, well packaged with lots of bubble wrap. Their nail lacquers are vegan, cruelty free and 5 free. Let's see some swatches!


Cirque Colors Concord with Uber Chic feather decals #pcawreness15

I was a bit late with posting my Instagram mani for #pcawareness15 so I thought I would use it for today's blog post.  The theme was wings/feathers and I decided to stick with just feathers.


40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Grey + colour - Tribal

Grey + colour is the theme for this weeks 40 Great Nail Art Ideas and my pattern prompt was tribal. I felt a bit "meh" about the mani I created. I thought it would be so much nicer in my head!


Radial Stamping with Uber Chic and Hit The Bottle

*This post contains previous Press Samples.

Have you tried Radial Stamping before? I've seen it done once before and thought I would give it a go. I think it came out pretty well for my first go!


Lady Queen Review - Stamping plate case

I have a quick review for you guys today of this lovely Stamping Plate Case from Lady Queen. Do you ever find yourself losing your small round/square shape plates? I know I do. I never have anywhere to keep them safe and them just end up lost in the bottom of my vanity case....until now!


Hit The Bottle Review - Nail-Artisan

Nail-Artisan recently sent me some Hit The Bottle stamping polishes for review. There are 4 cremes from a new collection and 1 shimmer from an older collection. All colours have been swatched over black and white.


Poppy Nails with Uber Chic

Least we not forget. Yesterday was Remembrance Sunday which is when we pay tribute to the men and women who have contributed towards the two world wars and later conflicts. Wednesday, Remembrance Day, is the official anniversary of the end of World War one. We wear a poppy with pride to honour these and women.


40 Great Nail art Ideas - Black and White-Tie Dye

So I was quite lazy with this weeks 40 Great Nail Art Ideas prompt. The theme was Black and White and my pattern prompt was Tie Dye. At first I thought I would try that technique where you drop polish into a cup of water and then spray it with something and it separates the polish. I think this would have worked quite well for a tie dye effect but to be honest I've just been so busy with things at home so I stuck to what I know and stamped!


Raspberry Margarita Roses mani

Happy hump day! It's a short week for me as I had Monday and Tuesday off work so it's feels like it's nearly the weekend again :D I have had this mani sitting in my drafts for a while and I was meant to post something else today but that went down the pan! So it's a job good I keep back ups.


Pancreatic Cancer Awareness mani - ILNP Charmingly Purple

This month is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month and I am taking part in a challenge on Instagram to raise awareness for this awful type of Cancer. Jayne from Starryeyed83 and Debbie from Ladyandthe_stamp are the organisers of this challenge and each week there is a new prompt. There are no rules other than to use purple! The first prompt for the 1st, which I know was yesterday, was Hearts and Love.


Hobby Polish Bloggers presents - Halloween

Happy Halloween! HPB are back again and we obviously had to do Halloween nails this month right?! I haven't done many Halloween manis a I've been busy doing other things so I did two in one today and these are nice and simple too.

*Picture Heavy

I have something a bit different on the blog today but it's still nail related! The lovely Kat from Soap Dodger sent me her new Hand Lover's Gift set to review along with a few other items. 


40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Orange, Purple and Green - Tape

I'm back for another instalment of Crumpet's Nail Tart Presents 40 Great Nail Art Ideas, and this weeks colour theme is Orange, Purple and Green. I know what you're thinking, great combo for Halloween nails, but not when you get stuck with Tape mani as your pattern prompt :/


Sugar Skulls - MoYou London stamping

I have some more Halloween nails for you guys today but these ones are less scary than my recent Walking Dead nails! MoYou London are hosting a Cute & Creepy contest and this is the mani that I am entering.


HJ Manicure Swatches and Review

I have a new brand on the blog today. This is HJ manicure which is a luxurious nail care range that consists of 16 shades created by Helen J without any toxins. The polish is cruelty free, vegan friendly and 5 free. Which means it doesn't contain Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP or Camphor.

One week there will be a nail art theme and then the next week will be colours and patterns.

So my weeks will be colours and patterns and today is my first post!

B Squared Lacquer - Down Tempo and stamping - BPS Review.

Unfortunately a lot of Indie companies have recently shut down, B Squared Lacquer was one of them. I have never tried their polish before but always thought they looked gorgeous. So I bought Down Tempo and Plur before my go to indie supplier, Rainbow Connection, discontinued them.


Celebrate with Nyx Celestial Cosmetics with Uber Chic stamping - Poison Ivy nails.

On the blog today I have the stunning Celebrate with Nyx with some stamping. All I could think when I looked at these nails was, this would be the perfect mani for Poison Ivy from Batman. Don't you think?


ILNP - Music Box with Lady Queen water decals

Yey it's the weekend again and when this publishes I will be at the pub lol! A friend at my work is leaving today and we are going out for a meal to see her off. I was recently contacted by Lady Queen to see if I would review a few of their products. Today's item are these Feather water decals.


Danglefoot Polish - I have nothing to wear

I went to a friends wedding recently and I managed to decide what I wanted to do with my nails before I could even decide on what to wear! So the name of this polish felt very appropriate as it's called I have nothing to wear. 


HPB Presents Autumn - Friday, I'm In Love and Uber Chic Stamping.

I think summer has well and truly left the UK so this months Hobby Polish Bloggers theme of Autumn is very appropriate. Luckily I had one perfect polish for my base colour and I tried my hand at decals again using my Uber Mat.


Mermaid Bestie Twin nails with Elaine Nails

Today I have another bestie twin nails mani to show you but this one is a bit different. Elaine from Elaine Nails announced on her Instagram that she would be taking part in a monthly nail art challenge for September but to make it a bit more tougher she wanted to do bestie twin nails for every theme with other bloggers. I was one of the ladies that she asked and I was thrilled!
