(Another) Interlocking Dotticure!

25 Jun

My good old fall back mani!! Whenever I’m uninspired and just want something pretty on my nails this design always comes out!!  It’s so easy to do, and relatively quick and always gets lots of compliments!

These greens were still left out from my attempt at plaid nails so I picked them up again (I can’t resist a good green!).

Polishes used:

  • Nails Inc – Marylebone Road
  • Models Own – Peacock Green

Green Tartan

18 Jun

I’ve been seeing quite a few tartan/plaid designs around the interwebs recently and it inspired me to recreate my own….in green, my favourite colour!  They’re not perfect but I still quite like them.  Last time I did plaid nails I used tape and it took FOREVER (but it was neat!).  This time I decided to risk going freehand and used various striping brushes….my hand is definitely a little shaky so the lines aren’t too neat, but overall not too bad for a first attempt!!  Practice makes perfect so I’ll definitely have to have a go at these again in the future!

Polishes used: 

  • Barry M – Spring Green
  • Models Own – Peacock Green
  • M&S – Dark Magenta

(B)Excellent Birthday Nails!

These nails are for my lovely friend Bex who bought me the gorgeous polishes featured in this post as part of a nail survival kit she gave me for my birthday!


I’ve never used any of the Seventeen polishes before but I’ll definitely be using them again now, thanks Bex!!  I absolutely adore the green colour, it’s easily going to be one of my favourites!

Polishes used:

  • Seventeen – Lime Em Up
  • Seventeen – Wishing Star
  • Seventeen – Silver Glitter

Stonecold Chevrons

These were my birthday nails from a few weeks ago, not very glamorous or complicated, but I spent far too long in the bath before getting ready to go out so ran out of time for anything extravagant!

Polishes used:

  • China Glaze – Stone Cold
  • MoYou – Black
  • Nails Inc – Lanesborough Place
