'Ard As Nails #Hashtag collection - swatches and review

*Picture Heavy

Evening guys. I hope you had a great bank holiday weekend. I got a few jobs at home done including weeding the back garden. Don't you just hate weeds?! It seems like you get rid of them one week and they are back the next! I am not green fingered at all so I'll stick to what I know..doing my nails! I have the wonderful #Hashtag collection to show you today from 'Ard As Nails. I was super happy when the lovely Kat contacted me about reviewing this collection and she was kind enough to include some of her new cuticle oil. Let's see some swatches!

40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Hot pink dots

Today's mani reminds me of when people go to raves and they put different coloured dots around their eyes and faces so they glow under the rave lights. I hope you guys know what I mean! My mani would have needed a few extra colours for a rave but the colour prompt for this weeks 40 Great Nail Art Ideas was just the one, hot pink.


CM Handmade UK Swatches and review

I have more new polishes to show you today from CM Handmade UK. When they contacted me again to swatch and review some more polishes I was thrilled. Their Two-Faced collection was brilliant so I knew these would be too!


Pink Gellac Swatch and Review

Type the Hype recently got in touch with me about reviewing the Pink Gellac starter kit. I had seen this brand a lot on a blog that I follow called Chickettes. I've been intrigued by it before so I said yes. 


What I like about Blue - Holo stamping gradient

I am totally loving China glaze at the moment. I recently picked up a few of the Lite Brites collection and then I saw some more at TK Maxx and then ordered some more from Nail Polish Direct..So yeah it's safe to say I've added a few more to my collection! Today's post is a holo stamping gradient over What I like about blue.


40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Neon Decals

Today's 40 Great Nail Art Ideas is all about neons! Now I know what some of you may be thinking...my challenge is for decals but the image above is a nail vinyl, but I applied them using the decal method so it counts :) I always tend to struggle with vinyls, I think I must apply them too hard to my nail as when I have painted over them and come to remove them, they pull up bits of my base colour! I've seen a few videos of people using them as decals so I thought I would give it a go and I was very impressed.


Work appropriate nail art - Nails Inc and Uber Chic

My work is pretty good when it comes to uniform and such. We can wear what we wan as long as it's smart. They also don't have restrictions on what we can wear on our nails which is awesome for me! I went on a customer visit recently and thought I should tone down the nails so I went for something a bit more work appropriate.


Tropical Surprise mani - BPS review

Boy am I glad it's Friday! It's only been a 4 day working week but it feels much longer. I was recently sent some water decals from Born Pretty Store and when I used this gorgeous thermal from Christina Marie Handmade UK, I knew I had to pair the two together for a tropical surprise mani!
