26 GNAI - Halloween In The Wrong Colours

Friday, 28 October 2016

So I've decided to join in the 26 Great Nail Art Idea challenge, created by Crumpet's Nail Tarts. On my blog I am going to go back in time to the 14th and post my first manicure sometime in the near future - does that even make sense? Anyway today I bring you Halloween In The Wrong Colours.


Having already done a fair few manicures, in a wide range of colours, deciding which palette to use was a little difficult. However I decided on neon and am so glad I did.

Ghost Water Decal Nail Art

Wednesday, 26 October 2016

Happy hump day. Hope you're all having a lovely week, I've been enjoying my time off but so far have spent more time deep cleaning my house than I have on nails. It's definitely time to fix that.


Last week after a very frustrating stamping session (I'm slowly getting there) I decided to order some water decals and I am so glad I did, it's revolutionised my take on nail art!

Tag - Breast Cancer Awareness - Favourite Pinks

Monday, 24 October 2016

The other day I was catching up on reading some blog posts and I came across Hayley's of A Nail Polish Addiction post called TAG: Breast Cancer Awareness and knew I needed to do my own version of this tag.


What with the recent Stand Up To Cancer event (see my post here) and October traditionally being Breast Cancer Awareness, it seemed like the perfect time to dust off some pink polishes and give you a run down of my top 10 fave pinks.

Stand Up To Cancer Nail Art

Friday, 21 October 2016

Happy Friday and a big yay to having a week off. I am so excited to have the following 9 days off work and I can't wait to get back on top of my swatch pile. I'm even off to IKEA tomorrow to grab a fourth helmer as I've bottles of polish spilling over everywhere. Yes, the time to get re-organised and plan is at hand and I am so pleased.


Today I have some nail art that I created for the Stand Up To Cancer event today.

Halloween 2016 Nail Polish Wish List

Wednesday, 19 October 2016

I'm usually not one to go all out for Halloween, however this year I'm embracing it and have even picked up a few new home wear pieces (thanks Home Sense & John Lewis) to decorate my place. Over the weekend I also scavenged some pine cones, conkers, leaves and acorns while I was out on a walk and combined them to add a slightly more authentic feel to the shop bought items.


It's been a while since I've done a wishlist and as Halloween is nearly upon us, I thought I'd take the opportunity to create a themed one. I've been ummming and ahhhing a lot over buying some of these polishes, so don't be surprised if you see some crop up on my blog before the month is out.

Another Monday done and dusted - wahoo. I have only a few more days at work before I have a week off, and I am so excited.


Today I have a review of Leighton Denny's Bare It All CC Base Coat to show you.

Primark PS Gel Effect AW16 Review

Saturday, 15 October 2016

Happy Saturday, I hope you've had a lovely day. I started mine off by having a long chatty breakfast catch up with an amazing friend. Then I popped to Waitrose and finally found some Mr Kiplings Fiendish Fancies on sale (omg I am totally addicted to these). I've spent the afternoon having a nice sort out and a long nap. It's been the perfect day.


Today I have a review of the new AW16 Primark Gel Effect colours, which I admit feels very weird, as it seems like only last week I was showing you their Spring Gels.

The Edge Nails 'Annika' Nail Colour Review

Thursday, 13 October 2016

PR Sample

If you call yourself a nail lover and have never come across The Edge Nails, then you've been doing something wrong. After all, this UK brand is massive in the industry and not only sells a lot of the basic supplies needed to run a salon, but they also offer a huge range of gel and nail colours, plus nail art accessories. Anyone can order from their website and I tend to stock up on basics like nail files and remover every so often as the quality and price point are brilliant.


Barry M Black Forest Gelly & Wet Set Topcoat Review

Tuesday, 11 October 2016

Tuesdays are always so difficult for me. After 2 days of work I'm exhausted and with the weekend still far away, I wonder how I'll make it there. Fingers crossed I survive this week.


As I promised yesterday in my Barry M Limited Edition Nail Paint review, I have some swatches and my first thoughts on their new topcoat for you today.

Barry M AW16 Limited Edition Shades

Sunday, oh how I love you. I love the weekend and my long lie ins, long hot baths and cosy days spent snuggled up on the sofa watching tv. I've also managed to do some swatching in amongst all the r&r, after all I did promise the other day to swatch all the polishes shown in this post (here), no mean feat when you think back to last month (I mean, a sloth could have done more swatching than I did).


So today I have the first of many Barry M nail paint posts I'm sure to show you this month. Back in August I was lucky enough to attend the AW16 product launch (see my post on that day here).

Happy Friday. Hows your week been? Today I thought I would show you all a little sneak peak at what's to come this month on The Polish List.


Leighton Denny - AW16 The Roaring 20's Collection

Thursday, 6 October 2016

PR Sample
Today I have an amazing 7 piece to show you from Leighton Denny. Their Autumn/Winter collection titled 'The Roaring 20's' is a celebration of defying the law, boozy nights & good music.



The mix of dark colours, electric hues, rich cremes & glitter effects are perfect for both the theme and the time of year and I know they'll be something here to suit everyone's taste. For an extra luxurious touch, all these lacquers have been infused with Platinum, an ingredient we don't usually see in nail polish.

MeeBox September 2016 'Pumpkin Spice' Nail Art

Wednesday, 5 October 2016

Happy Wednesday, how's your week going? Today I have the second part of my September 'Pumpkin Spice' MeeBox review (see the first part here). I always like to do some matching nail art to the theme of the box and where I can, use the extras included in the box to help.
However after my disastrous attempt at stamping (I am honestly the worst and tried at least 4 times to get the image to stick to the stamper) I decided that I would maybe come back to that. After all, there's only so much failure a person can take in one sitting.


MeeBox September 2016 - Pumpkin Spice

Monday, 3 October 2016

Another month and another fabulous MeeBox review. The day the new MeeBox arrives at my door is like a mini Christmas. Not knowing what is coming through the post is one of the most thrilling things and I love discovering what goodies have been included. What I love about MeeBox is the fact they change and morph the themes perfectly to suit the season and with the onset of Autumn, the 'Pumpkin Spice' theme of this months MeeBox is very apt.


Monthly Favourites - September 2016

Saturday, 1 October 2016

So September has been an epic failure as far as my blog has been concerned and I am sorry for it. As for why, the main reason is I have been caught up in work, boring but true. I've also been ill, suffered with exhaustion and to top it all off, I chipped a couple of my nails (definitely the worst from the list). However as the month draws to a close I am beginning to feel better, I've found my feet a little at work and believe I can strike some kind of balance between earning a living and indulging my passion.
