26 GNAI - Green Freestyle

Friday, 31 March 2017

Happy Friday or as I like to call it, the best day of the week. I have had such a lovely relaxing evening, I lit a bunch of candles, popped on my fave yankee candle scent and cooked up enough pasta to feed an army (and ate it all). The only thing left to finish this girly evening off is a heavenly soak in the bath.


But first, I must show you my Nail Crumpets, 26 Great Nail Art Ideas mani.

Happy Thursday, I hope you're having a great week. Another weekend looms tomorrow and as my bf will be out all evening I'm planning very cosy, pamper night! Leave your recommendations for movies/tv shows to watch while I soak in the bath below.


Today I have a review of Primark's Insta Girl collection, well the 4 polishes that make up part of the collection anyway.

Masura Nail Polish - A Review

Wednesday, 29 March 2017

PR Sample

Happy last Hump Day of the month. It's so weird to think it'll be April within a few days. Although the lighter evenings are lovely, I can't wait for the warmer Spring days as it's been a tad chilly recently.


The other week I received a really nice trio of polishes all the way from Russia. Masura is a brand I've seen around Instagram for a while now. and I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to try it out. Especially as they produce some incredible magnetic polishes.

SensatioNAIL DIY Gel Polish Review

Tuesday, 28 March 2017

PR Sample

Sometimes you receive PR packages that are out of this world and this was totally the case with this bundle of goodies from SensatioNAIL.


Shamefully I got this back in January and the main reason I am so late posting this review is because I wanted to fully test all 14 of the colours I was kind enough to be sent. The other reason is I'm a complete lazy bones.

Guest Post: A Career As A Nail Technician - What You Need To Know

Monday, 27 March 2017

Today I have a guest post written by the lovely Holly who contacted me and asked if I would be willing to work with her. After reading this piece I knew it would be a great fit for my little blog. As a nail obsessive who often day dreams about becoming a full time nail technician, I thought this post would be of interest to many others who read my blog and are thinking of not only ditching their miserable 9-5 but who want to fill their lives with the kind of creative happiness that nail art brings.

Red Nose Day 2017

Friday, 24 March 2017

Happy Friday and Happy Red Nose Day!


I know that some of you outside of the UK may wonder what on earth Red Nose Day is and rather briefly, it's a UK wide charity day aimed at raising money for the charity Comic Relief (who have a vision for a just world, free from poverty). On Red Nose Day you're encouraged to raise money through laughter and just like the stereotypical clown, don a red nose while you're at it.

Happy Saturday, hope you're enjoying your weekend. Despite the fact that the first sign of Spring has been engulfed in fog and it's now cold, wet and spooky outside, I am still having a nice day.

Primark PS Precious Metals Collection

Today I have something new and very sparkly to show you from Primark - The Precious Metals collection is gorgeous and it's made up of 3 metallic stunners.

Annika - Vintage Tea Party Collection

Thursday, 9 March 2017

Contains PR Samples

Happy Thursday, I am so glad that today's a little sunny. The crisp air, blue skies and rays coming through the windows have really cheered me up. Yes it's still a little chilly, but spring is on it's way.

The Edge Nail Annika Polish - Vintage Tea Party Collection

Speaking of spring, today I have a very spring themed nail collection to show you. The Edge Nails released 30 Annika shades last year and it wasn't until I was browsing their website that I realised they had popped them into come collection trays for sale in salons - you know I love a polish collection.

Madam Glam Mixed Gel Polish Review

PR Sample

Happy hump day, I hope you're all having a great week. I've managed to get a little on top of my swatch pile and today have a post that's been weeks in the making.


The lovely Andreea over at Madam Glam was kind enough to send me some gels to review and I couldn't have been more excited. They arrived back in Feb and since then I've been testing them out and I am so impressed.

Spring Nail Haul

Tuesday, 7 March 2017

As we progress through March and transition (slowly) into spring, I find myself putting away my winter knits and browsing the internet for some fresh, lighter clothing. I've picked up a couple of pairs of metallic flats and have started wearing my trusted chelsea boots a little less. The days are not warmer as much as they are milder and the longer hours of daylight mean that come 6 I can still nip out without needing a torch (you know - to pick up that bar of chocolate I promised myself I wouldn't need).


With my changing wardrobe, I also find myself needing to update my nail art supplies. I love shopping for seasonal bits and bob and today I have a little overview of some of my newest purchases (mostly all from eBay).

26 GNAI - Mixed Tape Mani

Sunday, 5 March 2017

I can't believe that I've got another Crumpet's Nail Tarts mani for you today. The weeks really slip by. This time the challenge was Mixed Tape Mani. A prompt that seemed to cause a little trouble as no one was sure what exactly they were suppose to do.


I interpreted it like this - a mixed technique mani with the use of tape. Yes a total cop-out but as I didn't plan this mani and then really loved how it turned out when it was finished, I wanted to use it and sometimes you have to make a square peg fit in a round hole.

Nails Inc AW16 - The Reflectors

Thursday, 2 March 2017

PR Sample

Happy Thursday, hope you're enjoying your week. Today I have a long overdue post for you featuring some gorgeous Nails Inc polishes.


Last year Nails Inc released this collection for AW16 along with their Charcoal infused Gel Effect collection. Now I've used these polishes in lots of nail art looks, but it's taken me until now to swatch them, I'm not sure why as they're incredible.

Monthly Favourites - February 2017

Wednesday, 1 March 2017

Another month of 2017 done (see my January 2017 monthly favourites here) and although February was a short month, it flew by and I can't believe that tomorrow will be March already.
