Hey guys, hope your enjoying the holidays! So every now and then a polish comes by which causes you to drop everything and blog about it immediately. Today this comes in the form of Hercynia from Picture Polish. I first saw it on Nailderella and gasped, but then I ordered the other collaboration shades and I just thought this one wouldn't suit me so left it out but regretted it immediately and ordered this before Christmas and it finally came today.
It's such a beauty, I can't even, just look at the pictures.  This is 2 coats without topcoat.

Hey guys, today I'm squeezing in another Christmas mani. 
For these I started with a base of Barry M Gelly in Coconut, I used skinny chevron nail vinyls from She Sells Seashells and Colors By Llarowe Gemini Rising and The Mighty Red Baron. 
Have a lovely day tomorrow everyone :)

Hi everyone, how are all? I've had a stressful day today but I did some Christmas nails a few days ago and I was determined to get them posted before the 25th so we'll see how that goes. (I think I've failed already, ha!) 
So I bought the gorgeous Bridget by Picture Polish a while ago and then the other day the gorgeous Saira sent me Kryptonite as a present, which has been a huge lemming of mine. 
Whilst I was arranging them on my shelf these 2 colours just happened to sit next to each other and I immediately knew I needed to do a Christmas gradient with them, which is what I'm showing you tonight! 
I've done a red and green Christmas gradient before here but this ones is HOLOOO!

Hey guys, I hope your having a good weekend. My parents are going away for 2 weeks tomorrow so I'm left in charge of the house and my brothers, I don't have anything planned so I'm hoping I can paint my nails a lot. 
Tonight I have for you my first negative space mani, I haven't done this before I wasn't sure I liked it but I decided to try it out quickly one night before bed for uni the next and I really liked how it came out and made my short nails look longer. 
For these I just have one coat of base coat and then I used the single chevron nail vinyls from She Sells Seashells and painted the rest of the nail with The Body Shop Colour Crush polish in Crazy For Blue* which is a gorgeous navy colour. I didn't top coat these because I didn't have time, so you can see the imperfections.
I just love the new The Body Shop polishes, they really are so amazing and they look so lovely, they would make the most perfect Christmas present if your looking for a last minute gift!

Hi guys, sorry for the absence. Unfortunately I feel like I'm losing my polishing mojo which makes me sad, I haven't done my nails properly since starting uni again and it hasn't really bothered me. I'm often just too tired to sit and do my nails and I haven't really missed it, I won't lie. I'm hoping this is just a phase and I snap out of it because this blog and nail polish has bought me so much happiness and got me through some really dark times and not to mention I've invested a lot on my collection! 
 So today I have yet another gradient mani using the Barry M Gelly winter polishes. I saw a very similar gradient by Coewless Nails on instagram and when I had the Barry M's in front of me and knew I had to try it out for myself. I used Mustard and Paprika for the gradient and then topped it off with OPI The Man With The Golden Gun for a more 'fall' look. 
I'm really happy with the way it turned out and just think it screams autumn and yes I know we're in winter now ;P

Hi everyone, remember these nails which I showed you the other day? 
Well I decided to go one step further and add a holo topcoat with the fish scale nail vinyls from She Sells Seashells.

Hola guys! So uni is now finished for Christmas and I had the loveliest day yesterday, I went to the Christmas markets, had crepes, went ice skating for the first time (I was awful, I fell 5 times) and ended it all with a lovely dinner. It's been really busy these past 2-3 weeks so I'm really happy to have nothing to do today :) 
 Today I have some nails which were completely inspired by the collection they came out with. I am talking about the Barry M Winter Gelly collection, I picked up the shades Mustard, Chilli, Paprika, Cardamom and Chai (which I didn't use in this design) I love the spice names and so decided to use all 4 of the polishes and then frame each nail with silver Art Deco acrylic paint* to look like a spice box! I'm not sure it fully worked but it still looks good right?

Hi guys, how are you all today? I'm sorry I disappeared, the wedding was amazing and busy of course, and today I finally handed in my essay and had my oral presentations which went well as well and tomorrow is the last day of the semester, woop, woop! 
I wore these nails when I went to go and see the lovely Sarah. I use a coat of black polish for and then applied one coat of ILNP Peace. On the middle finger I used a unicorn nail vinyl from She Sells Seashells on the ring finger and painted over it with black.
