Coral Ombré for Maniswap Circle

To match the hot weather we’ve been having lately, I think this Coral Ombré design is perfect. It’s got a sunbleached look to it, that with the neon makes a perfect summer holiday manicure.

Fire Obsidian nail art 

As part of my series inspired by semi-precious stones, I've been looking around for my next project. The photo (scroll down) really caught my eye, so I'm trying this Fire Obsidian nail art. It's an experiment in progress so I think I'll be coming back and trying this again.

Swatch: Chanel Rouge Red 546 Spring 2017

This is a very long overdue swatch post, but it has some bonus nail art which I hope you enjoy. This time I have Chanel Rouge Red 546 from the spring 2017 collection.

Every year it seems, Chanel come out with a new red polish. They have subtly different colour undertones, so if you already know what suits your skin tone, this should help you make a decision between them.

The story of how I got nail polish in my eye (so you don’t have to)

This is a bit different from my normal blog posts, but I hope you still find it interesting. Before I start, this is not for the squeamish. Just believe me when I say I got nail polish in my eye and it was awful. Don’t let it happen to you, and as soon as you see your polish chipping, take it off and do a fresh manicure.

For the rest of you with stronger constitutions, read on… Read More

Glitter Mermaid Tail Nail Art Mint Green

Yes, I know this is another green manicure. I’ve honestly been trying to do something different, but this isn’t really my fault. This Mermaid Tail Nail Art is part of this month’s Maniswap challenge, and the prompt was mint green.

I based it on a design from Jane, who is known as Foxxy Nails on Instagram and has a YouTube channel too.

Amethyst Crystal Nail Art Smoosh Technique

In a very exciting departure, I’m writing about nail art that isn’t green!! I’ve been on a bit of a theme lately, so here’s something different.  Along with opal nails, trying to recreate nails that look like semi-precious stones has been a challenge. This Amethyst Crystal Nail Art uses a smooshing technique which worked really well to create the layers and stripes you see in this type of stone.

Chanel Spring 2017 swatches Emblematique Washed Denim Androgyne

I’m finally back with some new Chanel Spring 2017 swatches  and these posts are always really popular content here.  I thought that the colours they chose were more autumnal than spring-like, but Chanel have a new-ish creative director, so maybe that’s why.  The last few collections, like Summer 2016, were kind of unexpected shades, unlike some of the candy-inspired colours you expect at this time of year.
