Penguins

Penguins!!

How cute are these little guys?! It’s getting quite a bit colder now in the UK so I started thinking about colder things and voila!
When my mum saw these she said that they reminded her of the group of penguins in the film Madagascar and I might have to agree :)

Review: Mavala Sublime Collection Espresso

This is a press sample.

Last week I received some really lovely nail mail in the post from Mavala in the form of their new Sublime Collection, six polishes perfectly suited to this cooler time of year.

Today I have for you one of the darker polishes in the collection – Espresso. Espresso is a rich dark coffee colour, almost of the colder tones of brown than the warmer which makes it quite an unusual brown polish.

Remembrance Day Poppies

Today is Remembrance Day, when on the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour we spend some time in silence as a nation to remember those who fought for us in the wars. It’s a day where everyone wears poppies as a mark of respect, so I thought I would paint my nails with poppies in tribute this year.

Remembrance Day Poppies

I started by painting my nails with two coats of Barry M Matt White. I then used Barry M Blood Orange with a tiny paintbrush to paint the petals of the poppies. Next, I used a dotting tool with Nails Inc Black Taxi to create the dots in the centre of the poppies. Finally, I used Sinful Colors Exotic Green to paint the little leaves.

I hope you like them!

Tutorial: How to Paint Flamingo Nails

So I’ve had a request to do a tutorial of how to paint my flamingo nails, and as it is really very easy, I thought I would oblige!

You will need a light blue polish, a bright pink polish, a light pink polish, a small paintbrush and a dotting tool or toothpick. And don’t forget your base coat and topcoat!

Review: Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Red Carpet

Talk about ruby slippers! How gorgeous is this?!

Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in shade Red Carpet is another polish which I bought during my business trip to Utah. It is quite a bright red polish packed with tiny red glitter. The glitter is so fine though, that I still managed to get a completely smooth surface with just one topcoat.

Mr Tickle

Don’t even ask me where this idea came from. I literally have no clue, other that my weird mind managed to conjure it up whilst at work the other afternoon.

But wouldn’t you agree, this might be the best manicure I have ever done! I am so unbelievably proud of it!

If you don’t know who Mr Tickle is, he is a character from a series of children’s books called Mr Men and Little Miss :)

Review: Sinful Colors Cinderella

This polish is one I have had for absolutely ages and bought during a Westfields polish shopping trip. Have you ever been there? It’s a HAVEN for nail polish.

Sinful Colors Cinderella is a lovely baby blue polish with a subtle pink shimmer to it. It’s so easy to see in these photos, but in the sunlight it really pops!

Fireworks

It’s Guy Fawkes Night! At least, it will be tonight… For those of you around the world that have no idea what I’m talking about, once a year on 5th November the UK remembers an event in history where a man called Guy Fawkes tried to commit treason and blow up the houses of parliament! Nowadays, we celebrate with fireworks and usually light a bonfire with a man on top, supposedly him!

We have a little rhyme we always say too….

Remember remember the 5th of November,
gun powder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot!

So today I have a fireworks manicure for you to celebrate this fun and freezing night of the year!
