101 Dalmatians

October 31st, 2013 (No Comments)

I seem to have caught the Disney nail art bug! This is a design I saw pop up on a random Google search and just know I had to have a go at it! You can see the original version by Lisa Nails HERE. I haven’t seen 101 Dalmations for years, but painting this manicure […]

Giveaway: Revlon Chroma Chameleon Polishes

October 30th, 2013 (12 Comments)

Well, this giveaway is WELL overdue. It was She Who Does Nail’s first birthday back on the 10th August, but as this day was also my wedding day, I didn’t get around to celebrating it. But this week I hit 1000 followers on Instagram, and thought what the heck, I’ll have one now! For this […]

Toy Story Aliens

I have been waiting to do these nails for absolutely ages! I just needed them to be long enough, and we’re finally there! I got the idea from the amazing CutePolish’s video HERE and thought I would recreate it in my own way. I started by painting my nails with a base of Sally Hansen […]

Review: Jacava Raspberry Bavarois

October 27th, 2013 (1 Comment)

Hi all! Today I have another review for you about a polish made by the relatively new British brand, Jacava. This luxurious polish is called Raspberry Bavarois. Jacava’s Raspberry Bavarois is a wonderful hot pink but with a richer, fuller tone. This pretty pink has much more of a red undertone to it than a purple, and so […]

Jewels in the Sea

October 26th, 2013 (No Comments)

Something a little more abstract from me today! I realised that I haven’t done any stamping for ages  and couldn’t resist pulling the glitter out too, so here is something a little less inspired and a little more puzzle-like. I actually had quite a lot of fun doing this one! I started by painting my […]

Review: Golden Rose Holiday 55

Today I have another treat for you from sunny sunny Turkey! This horrid weather in the UK is making me daydream of the warm skies and blue seas of our honeymoon, so what better way to reminisce than with a polish I bought when I was out there! This wonderful sparkly glitter bomb is Golden […]

Dandelions in the wind

I must confess, this is a bit of a copy as I saw this style of manicure somewhere on twitter last week, but I can’t remember whose it was! So if you did a dandelion manicure recently, then thanks for the inspiration for today’s post! I decided to go for quite a cartoony look today […]

Review: Jacava Blackberry Fool

October 23rd, 2013 (No Comments)

This post contains a press sample. Having a good day? If not, I hope I can make it a whole lot better with this gorgeous new polish I have to show you! A few months ago an email dropped in my inbox from the company Jacava asking if I would be interested in trying out […]

This week in the She Who Does Nail Art Challenges group on Facebook (come join us!), the theme is Birds. While trying to decide what to decorate my nails with for this theme, I scoured my stamping plates and thought about hand painting like birds in a cage, but when I started thinking about the […]

Review: Golden Rose Jolly Jewels 106

October 17th, 2013 (No Comments)

Good morning all! Today I have for you a polish that I found in a tiny shop on our honeymoon last month! We spent almost two weeks in Marmaris, Turkey, and had the most amazing time! Marmaris is the home of the second largest bazaar in Turkey, so needless to stay I did spend a […]
