Madam Glam swatches and review

*Press samples

Hello fabulous people! I hope you had a great bank holiday weekend. Mine was lovely and relaxed and now I have this week off work, woohoo!! Madam Glam recently contacted me again to see if I would like to do another review for them. Madam Glam have a huge range of gel polishes and also some regular nail polishes. I would say they are a boutique brand as they aren't an indie but they aren't mainstream either. I'm going to be sharing a few gel polish swatches today.

IZ Beauty of London review, swatches and nail art


Hey guys. Sorry I missed Friday's post. Our family cat went missing last Tuesday so the week was a bit busy and stressful looking for her and wondering what had happened. On Friday she just turned up in the garden, sat on the seat as if nothing had happened! A lit bit dirty and with a poorly eye but ok. If only animals could talk eh?! I never got chance to write this post so I pushed it on to today and there will be three posts this week.
I was recently sent a box full of goodies from IZ Beauty Of London to swatch and review. It included five nail polishes and a few nail art items.

26 GNAI - Yellow and one bold colour


Hey guys. Hope you are all well today. Today's 26 Great Nail Art Ideas is all about that yellow, and a bold colour. I actually used the yellow as my bold colour I guess as this neon is so damn bright! Then I stamped in black which is also a bold colour right?!

Hey guys. Hope you all had a lovely weekend. I spent a bit of time with my mum and sister on Sunday down at the market in Brighouse. I made sure I was home Before Tour De Yorkshire came through though lol they closed the roads off for the bikes so it was a bit awkward getting around. 
Today I have a review of Uber Chic Collection 16. This collection has some lovely inspirational words, geometric patterns and of course florals.

26 GNAI - Work appropriate nail art


When it comes to my nails and work I am very lucky as I can do what I want. Heck.. this week I had one polish on the fingers of my swatch hand, a nail art design on my thumb and then a different colour on my Cindy! It's safe to say I have freedom when it comes to my nails at work but some people aren't that lucky. So for today's 26 GNAI the theme is work appropriate nail art.

26 GNAI - Pastel to Bold with something on top


Wooo it's Easter Friday and that means I've had the day off work and chocolate lol! I hope you've had a great day and are looking forward to the nice long weekend. I have a new mani today as part of 26 Great Nail Art Ideas and the theme was pastel to bold with something on top. I don't actually have neons that would have been suitable for the pastels I wanted to use so I kept it simple with similar colours.

Roxanne Campbell swatch, review and nail art


Hey guys. I hope you had a lovely weekend! I'm actually typing up this review on Sunday morning while sat in my garden in the sun....bliss! I was recently contacted by Roxanne Campbell to review one of her polishes. Roxanne is the lead manicurist/nail artist at London and New York fashion week. She has been a nail expert now for eleven years. She felt there was a gap in the market for unique fashion colours so she decided to release her own luxury nail polish.

Meebox - Miami Nice swatches and review


Happy Tuesday everyone!! I have a colourful post for you today. The awesome ladies at Meebox contacted me and asked if I would like to review March's box and I said yes! They must have read my mind as I was very tempted by the theme last month and almost bought it for myself for my birthday. The theme was Miami Nice and it actually reminded me a bit of the very first box in August 2015

Hey guys. Hope you've all had a great week. On the blog tonight I have Feeling Shapely 02 by Lina Stamping Supplies sent for review by Nail-Artisan.

Mermaid mani - ILNP and Bundle Monster


Hey lovely readers. I hope you had a fab weekend! It was my birthday on Sunday so I went out for a lovely  meal and got spoilt by my family. I also got some lovely presents from friends within the nail community which completely shocked me. People are so kind!

26 GNAI - Spring Animals


Don't you think that we sometimes take ourselves too serious?! So with that in mind I wanted to do some silly nail art with this week's 26 Great Nail Ideas prompt, Spring Animals. I did a fluffy chicken and a very questionable sheep lol!

Nailing Mental Health


I've gone all green for today's post guys and it's for a good cause! On the 2nd of April, Guinness book of world records have accepted a bid to smash a world record down in London. The record is to paint over 6078 peoples nails in the colour green, to mark the 6078 people that lost their battle in the UK and ROI against a mental illness in 2015. The mastermind behind this all is a lady called Stephanie Staunton. She is a professional manicurist and this is a very personal venture for her. Stephanie is hoping, along with 350 other manicurists, that they will raise £30k for MIND and for Nailing Mental Health.

Trosani UK product review - Polish and gel kit

Happy Friday all! Yesterday was technically my Friday as I had the day off work today and spent it at Gomersal Park Spa with my mum and sister. I wrote this post earlier on this week but I can guarantee I had an amazing time....how can you not at a spa all day?!
Today I am showing you a new to me product...peel off gel polish. Trosani UK contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if I would be interested in trying their Ziplac peel off gel polish kit. I had to say yes as the concept really intrigued me.

Pink Gellac - Candy Couture swatches and review


I don't know about you guys but I am so fed up with the current English weather. One minute it's raining, then windy and then sunny...just make your mind up already! We had a lovely day on Saturday and the sun was so warm and it made me want Spring to be here already. Well at least spring colours are coming!! I have the new Candy Couture collection by Pink Gellac to share with you all. It consists of 7 gorgeous colours that are perfect to bring us into spring.

26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Mixed Tape Mani


Happy Friday guys!! How quick has this week gone?! I was quite excited to share today's post with you as it's something a bit different. The prompt for this weeks 26 Great Nail Art Ideas is Mixed Tape Mani. If you're like me you probably would have thought of nail vinyls and striping tape but my lovely friend Kirsty of Fairytales Nails thought of a mix tape! You know...like the old cassette tapes we used to listen to music on back when we were kids! We decided to do a triplet mani and each do the same nail design. Unfortunately Becca, from A Certain Becca Nails, and myself didn't have any stamping plates with tapes on them :(
So we went with plan B!!

Meet Me Over The Rainbow Bridge - A doggy tribute


Hey guys. Today's post is a bit of a sombre one. In our family we have had a few losses very recently, the four legged kind, and I wanted to give them my own little tribute post. Some people think dogs are just dogs but to us they are our family so it's heartbreaking when they cross to the rainbow bridge.

Jessica Nails - Silhouette collection


TGIF guys! Hope you've all had a good week. Mine was pretty standard for a work week but I'm happy it's the weekend and I can enjoy my new garden. We had it flagged this week with Indian flagstone and it looks fab!

Today I have the new Silhouette collection from Jessica Nails to share with you. It consists of 6 nude  cremes and some even have flakies! Which is great to see from a mainstream brand.

Hey guys! Hope you are all well and had a lovely weekend. Mine was quite quiet really. My dad was here helping us do some work on the house and then I saw my grandparents, mum and sister on Sunday. So a nice family filled weekend!
Alex from Nail-Artisan recently sent me lots of Esmaltes Da Kelly goodies to try out and review and that included some Kelly Negri stamping plates.

I love today's 26 Great Nail Art Ideas challenge...Blue floral. If you know me, you know I love blues so I couldn't wait to do the mani for today's prompt. I loved it so much I kept it on for my full working week! 

14.2.17

All About Love - Lina Stamping plate


Happy Valentines day people! I don't do Valentines day to be honest, it's just too commercial for me, but it's nice to have pretty nails right and the All About Love plate can be used at any time! This new plate by Lina Stamping is gorgeous!

Lina Dress Your Nails 01 - Nail-Artisan review


I just love tartan images so I was over the moon when Alex from Nail-Artisan sent me the Lina Dress Your Nails 01 plate to review. It's full of fabric patterns like tartan, hounds tooth, argyle and more! I wanted to do some simple manis with this plate just to show that you don't always have to go mad with your base colours or stamping ideas.

#smearforsmear - Cervical Cancer Awareness


Today I have a very important post to share with you and it's quite personal. I wanted to help raise awareness for the importance of Smear tests, also known as Cervical Screening. I became aware of Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust and found out that every January they run a campaign on Instagram called #smearforsmear. They call on women everywhere to apply lipstick, smear it and post a selfie to help spread the word that Smear tests are very important. I put my own twist on this and asked the nail community to join in and smear our art to help create more attention for the cause.

20.1.17

26 GNAI - Red and Pink


Happy Friday everyone! I have a very cutesy 26 Great Nail Art Ideas post for you today. It's all about red and pink if you can't guess. In the week before I did this mani, Nail-Mail contacted me and asked if I wanted to review some vinyls and then sent me a few different ones. I just had to use the cute Floating Hearts for this mani as it was just perfect timing!

17.1.17

Just Beauty - Secret Santa


In the week before Christmas, Just Beauty contacted me with an exciting opportunity! They ask if I would like to be part of a nail blogger secret Santa. I said yes of course! So they sent me a name across and I had to pick some items up to the value of £10, from the Just Beauty website, to gift to that person. These are the items that I was gifted.

Uber Chic Collection 14 - Nail-Artisan review


If you remember back to last Friday, we had a new Uber Chic release, and it included collection 14. Alex from Nail-Artisan kindly send this to me for review and I created a mani with each plate.

26 GNAI- New Year, new me.


So excited to show you my mani for New Year, new me as it's my first successful drag marble!! Yaay go me! I was so happy with this, especially my ring finger. I've tried to do it a few times before but could just never get it right.
