Blogsquad Collection - 'Ard as Nails swatches and review

*Picture heavy

I have an epic post for you today guys and it's picture heavy. These polishes are from the new Blogsquad collection by 'Ard as Nails and they are just so stunning it was hard to narrow the amount of pictures down! The Blogsquad collection consists of 5 scatted holographic polishes that are all opaque in two coats, nearly one for some. 'Ard as Nails, by Soap Dodger, have been shut for a while but they will reopen this Friday with a new look website so make sure you check them out.


40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Coral and White - Embellishments

Happy Friday guys! I'm back with yet another instalment of 40 Great Nail Art Ideas and this weeks colour prompt is coral and white. For my pattern prompt I had to use something 3d or embellishments. I don't really use any embellishments but I found a few things in my stash!  


Diabolical Nail Varnish - Firebox.com swatches and review

Are you a fan of The Grand Budapest Hotel film? If so you are going to love this post. Firebox.com reached out to me and asked me if I would like to review their Diabolical Nail Varnish. This little box is inspired by the film, and although I've not actually seen it myself, I just found the names of these polishes so intriguing! These polishes are 5 free and vegan friendly.  


Rainbow Roses - Pretty Serious and Uber chic

There has been a few incidents reported on the news this week that are truly horrendous. One of them was the terrible shooting in Orlando. I did these nails on Sunday and didn't actually hear about the sad new until Monday. It seems I live under a rock these days. I wasn't going to share this mani yet but there's a group of us on Facebook, Rainbow Pride Nails, and we are sharing our rainbow nails to pay tribute to those affected by the shooting.


Simply Nailogical inspired holo galaxy mani

Hope you all had a great weekend. I went to a BBQ on Saturday as it was my partner's brother's 40th birthday! It was a lovely day with all the family and the rain held off until we had finished the BBQ. Lucky or what! I took part in a group theme by Dressed Up In Polish recently which was a Galaxy theme. I had never done a galaxy mani before so I went for it and I'm super impressed with what I did!


40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Mint and dotting tools

This weeks prompt wasn't a great one for me so this is just a quick post. This was my third attempt at a mani! It was a tricky one as my pattern was dotting tools. Last week I had dots so I had to do something different this week.


Neon Gradient with China Glaze and Uber Chic

I really am digging the new Lite Brites collection from China Glaze! So much so that I bought another polish from the collection recently and then used them all in this mani.


Stamped pond mani -Barry M Lolly Gloss

I'm not normally one for sheer or jelly polishes but when Barry M released their new Lolly Gloss collection I knew I had to try some! I specifically wanted to try a pond mani which is where you have layers of polish and put something in between the layers. For examples, dots, flowers, stamping etc. I chose stamping of course!
