Moroccan Nail Art with The Lacquer Lab Marrakech Collection

I was looking for a Morrocan inspired design to create with The Lacquer Lab's Marrakech collection, and the Quatrefoil technique caught my eye so I decided to give it a go! I've also got swatches of the whole collection!

Festival Daisies

Hi! I'm back with a brand new blog layout, courtesy of Pipdig, who have been just wonderful. Please let me know what you think! It's not wildly different (I hate change!) but it's cleaner and fresher, just what I wanted!

Today I have some festival-inspired nail art that I created for Beauty At Tesco, using all Barry M polishes. It's making me wish I could have gone to a festival this year!

Shimmer Polish Jasmine Swatches

Hi! I know it's been pretty quiet around here lately. I had a really busy period of time where I just couldn't sit down to blog, and then after that I got sick with a horrible stomach bug right after my last post which I have still barely recovered from! Everything happens at once doesn't it!? I'm going to push ahead this week and catch up on reviews!

Today I have latest in my Shimmer Polish series - Jasmine, a beautiful polish made up of predominantly aquamarine and blue glitter, interspersed with gold, green and red. I've used 2 coats plus top coat, over China Glaze Custom Kicks, a teal green creme. This is another winner from Shimmer Polish! Wonderfully easy application and not at all top coat hungry.


You can purchase Shimmer Polish via their Etsy store or their website. International shipping is available!

Baroque Beauty

Did you know that a-england make fabulously good stamping polishes? Well, they do! I've used two of my favourite a-england beauties - Saint George and Sleeping Palace - for this design, along with an image from MoYou London Pro Collection 03 (XL). The baroque style design is a perfect match for the mythical feel of a-england polishes! I feel like this has a sort of Game of Thrones feel to it, too. I think if Cersei Lannister had some stamping plates and nail polish, this is what she might rock. ;)
