Chanel Verde Pastello swatch Neapolis Spring 2018

New, fun Chanel polishes are out, and you’re going to love these spring colours! I’m swatching them for you with a quick review, starting with Chanel Verde Pastello, a fresh turquoise creme.

My bottle of Verde Pastello has some weird wrinkles in the glass, just below the cap.

Pink Galaxy nail art

I’m not normally into pink. It’s not a go-to nail shade for me, and I actively avoid buying pink things! But I like to buck the trend once in a while, like with this Pink Galaxy nail art design. I was inspired by Anikibee’s design on Instagram for this one.

Pink Galaxy nail art definitely is a non-traditional look for this nail design!

Ella + Mila Polish at Professional Beauty 2018

I visited Professional Beauty 2018 in London this week, and I was really happy to find a brand on sale that I haven’t seen in the UK before.  Ella + Mila Polish is available in Target in the US, and online, but I found it on sale from a vegan beauty retailer here too! I bought some of their shades, and used two for this easy but effective design of a glitter gradient.

The grey-blue creme and copper glitter is a lovely contrast, and I was really impressed with the Ella + Mila polish formula.

Matte Metallic Gradient with subtle marbling base

Recently I went out for brunch to celebrate my upcoming birthday, and this matte metallic gradient stamping was the design I created. I went to B&H Buildings with my besties Lisa and Kim, for an amazing bottomless brunch with apple and pear mimosas.

Freehand Flowers and Lines for Valentine’s Day

My latest design for Maniswap Circle really takes me back to when I did loads of freehand nail art. This Freehand Flowers and Lines design inspired by Sezies Nails (Sarah) is based on a dress, and was originally created in white, pink and black. I used the Maniswap prompt colours of brown, white and red to create a beautiful Valentine’s Day design.

Leaf Print nail art ready for spring

Over Christmas I was getting really frustrated with breaking off corners and a couple of nails starting to break really low.  In a fit of pique, I cut them off really short and this is the result… I needed some nail art to remind me that spring is on the way – this Leaf Print nail art is just the thing!

Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer by Gustav Klimt nail art

I’m always looking for inspiration, and I have had this MoYou London plate for ages, which has elements of Gustav Klimt’s artwork.  The Art Nouveau artist was influenced by Byzantine artwork and mosaics, and his golden phase works are most familiar to me.  I created this Klimt nail art based on the Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I, which is one of his most famous.
