40 GNAI - Earth Tones - Tartan - Nicole Diary review

So today is my last 40 GNAI post. I've really enjoyed this challenge over the last year as it's made me try things I wouldn't normally do. Hopefully there will be a new one starting soon but we'll see! Today's post is very Autumnal with earth colours and I had to chose from a few different patterns and I went with tartan. I went through a bit of a tartan phase last year and I still love it! This prompt gave me the perfect opportunity to show you plate ND112 from Nicole Diary.


Candy Coat gel polish review plus nail art

Hey guys. I hope you are well. The weather has taken a turn this week and it's feeling more autumnal but I have some brights ans holo on the blog today...because that's how I roll! Candy Coat are a fun online gel polish company that specialise in gorgeous bright candy coloured gel polish, hence the name. They have over 320 colours available and offer a few different buying options. They have Pick 'n' Mix, Colour box and Subscription box. For my review I chose 3 colours from the Pink 'n' Mix menu and they also included a base coat, a top coat and a super shiny no wipe top coat.


Model's Own Soft Pop watermarble - Uber Chic stamping

I am loving the Models Own Soft Pop collection, especially for watermarbling. I met Rebecca from Baby Mama Nails last month and we had cocktails and then decided to go shopping! So we ended up in a Models Own Bottle shop and I got the full Soft Pop collection :)


Uber Chic Collection 11 - Nail-Artisan review

Well this weekend was a busy one! I had a few things to do on Saturday and then on Sunday I attended PB North in Manchester! It was fun and interesting and I have lots of pics to share with you all...but for today I have another Uber Chic review. Alex from Nail-Artisan sent me collection 11 to review recently. This collection has some gorgeous images, but I wouldn't expect anything else from Uber Chic.


40 GNAI - Red, yellow and green - Half and half - Nicole Diary review

Today I have my penultimate post of 40 Great Nail Art Ideas and I will be so sad when it ends in a few weeks time! I have teamed this post with a review of a stamping plate that was sent to me by Nicole Diary. The colour prompt was red, yellow and green and my pattern was half and half.


Professional Beauty North - September 2016

Hey guys! Today's post is going to be different from the norm. I am visiting Professional Beauty North on Sunday in Manchester so I thought I would write up a quick post just explaining what it's all about. PB North is one of the largest beauty showcases in the north. It is host to over 500 brands and also two additional shows, Salon North and Aesthetic Medicine. They also have a lot of seminars but I haven't actually booked in on any. It is spread over Sunday the 18th and Monday the 19th of September.

Paris In Love Uber Chic - Nail-artisan review

I did this mani in what feels like forever ago! It's just taken me this long to post it but I don't know why as I loved it. Maybe I just wanted to keep it to myself for a bit longer! I was sent the gorgeous Paris in Love plate by Alex from Nail-Artisan to show you guys.


40 GNAI - Peach and Lemon - Gradient

This week's instalment of 40 GNAI is a bit delayed due to my Uber Chic review that I had to post on Friday. If you haven't checked it out then I seriously think you should! anyway, back to the task at hand! This week's theme was peach or lemon and I had to do a gradient. So I actually used both colours and did a stamping gradient over a gradient.

Nail-Artisan review - Uber Chic Halloween 02, Who gives a hoot and Lovely leaves

*Picture heavy

Today's post was mean to be a 40 GNAI mani, but I've had to reschedule that for this weekend as there are new Uber Chic plates tonight! I am super stoked about these and luckily I've had the week off work so when the plates arrived with me yesterday from Nail-Artisan, I stayed up late to get a mani done with each plate. There are a few surprises on these plates too!
