Hi guys. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and got plenty of naily treats (this year I got a few little nail-related things, and I'm planning on putting together a haul in the very near future, so keep checking back). Anyway, now that Christmas has drawn to a close it's time to turn our attention to the new year. I never really do anything overly exciting on NYE - it's always far too busy and expensive, so I much prefer a quiet night in with a home cooked meal and a bottle of wine (or two). But just because I don't have a glamorous New Year's Eve, there's no reason I can't have glam nails...

Hi everyone. Today I have a slightly different post to share with you. Earlier this week I had my standard seasonal clear out, and along with getting rid of three huge bin bags of clothes (!), I decided to organise and rearrange my dressing room. When I got started on my nail art equipment, I realised I never did an updated nail polish storage post... and we moved house nearly two years ago! So if you'd like to see how a self-confessed nail polish addict stores and organises her collection, keep on reading.

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! This weekend has been an extremely lazy one, involving Christmas decorations (I'm going for a rose gold theme this year, which is sitting very nicely with my boyfriend), tea-drinking, festive films and of course, a little bit of nail art. I decided to do a snowflake design, and opted for pastel colours with a hint of deep purple.

Hi everyone! Today I have a very cute but rather random nail art design to share with you...
You're probably thinking that this type of nail art is best suited to another time of year (February 14th, to be precise). But if you really think about it, these nails are really not that irrelevant at all. For starters, it's so bloody grey and dreary outside, it's nice to brighten things up a little with a super sparkly, Valentine's-inspired design. Secondly, and without wanting to go into too much detail, there are so many hideous things going on in the world right now, why not channel some love and positivity? Finally (and I've got to admit that I've only just realised this) my lipstick kisses nails have a Parisian feel about them. Bold, romantic, modern yet classical, they're a subtle nod to the city of love. Of course, I understand that my little old nails are hugely insignificant in the grand scheme of things, but it's always nice to share the sentiment that lies behind the scenes.

Hi guys. Today I decided it was about time I do some wintry nail art. While we're still in the midst of autumn, and there are more high speed winds and bursts of torrential rain (cheers Storm Abigail!) than frost, snowflakes and what-not, I couldn't resist a sparkly, icicle-inspired manicure. It also meant I could try out the 'waterfall' technique that nail bloggers have been showcasing for years, especially as I recently dug out some thin liner paintbrushes that I completely forgot I owned.
