Nailvengers Assemble: Mardi Gras Madness!

Welcome to the second installment of Nailvengers Assemble! This month, our theme is Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras is a carnival celebration and this year it falls on March 4th. Aesthetically it's all about colour, costumes, masks, feathers, beads etc, so that's what I've gone for here!

Don't forget to check out my fellow Nailvengers - Lucy's Stash, One Nail To Rule Them All, xameliax and The Nailasaurus. If you create a manicure inspired by any of us use #nailvengers on Twitter so we can see!

Zigzag Gradient

After how popular my last vertical gradient proved to be, I decided to try it again with different colours and an accent nail...because I can rarely resist an accent nail!

Dance Legend Candy Flakes Swatches

I have some Dance Legend polishes to show you today, in the form of the Candy Flakes collection! As you may have guessed from the name, this is a flakie collection. Admittedly I'm not usually wild about flakie polishes, but...these are just so pretty!

Heart Of Glass

I've just spent the past 10 minutes crying laughing at the Breaking Bad Valentines on Tumblr. If you love Breaking Bad you need to go and look! Aaaaanyway...I haven't had time to prepare a Valentine's design for today, so I'm cheating a bit, but I have been waiting for an appropriate occasion to swatch this!

Tattoo Nail Art

I was having a clear out of my various nail paraphernalia (I love that word) and came across my nail tattoos from Fake Tattoos (first reviewed here) and this design popped into my head!

Understated Valentine

I've never been much of a fan of Valentine's Day inspired nail art. Although I have taken part in the past, all the hearts and reds and pinks just aren't really my thing. So while I did have Valentine's Day in mind with this one, I was going for more sweet and understated!

Illamasqua Destiny Swatches

Illamasqua Destiny

Destiny was released to celebrate Chinese New Year, but is unfortunately an exclusive to a shop called Myer in Australia, which made me sad and pouty to say the least. Luckily, I have lovely friends with lovely Mums, and Hannah of Polly Polish sent this to me as a surprise by way of her Mum, who lives in Australia. I am forever grateful to them both!

Twinsie Nails with Polly Polish

Welcome to my first ever twinsie post! I've teamed up with my wonderful friend Hannah of Polly Polish for some gradient stamping with MoYou London and Barry M. I use the Barry M Gellies in so much nail art, and they're especially great for gradients.

Leopard, Studs and Glitter

I've been trying out different styles of leopard print lately, trying to find one that works best for me. I quite like this minimalist style, but it's still not working for me too well!
