Swatch: FUN Lacquer Ursa Major made with iparallaxe

This is FUN Lacquer Ursa Major named after a constellation also known as The Plough or The Big Dipper. Here’s a little known fact about me: at school I did my science exams a year early, so in my final year I did a GCSE in Astronomy! It was very cool, with a few practical projects as well.  Read More

Grey and Silver Chevron nail art for Maniswap Circle

Ages ago (this post has been sat in draft for way too long) I created this maniswap for the circle.  The colour prompt was grey and silver, and I chose this chevron design from sweetnailsbycandi.

Holographic Stamping on Holo Polish

One of the best things about summer in the UK is that, occasionally, you get brilliant sunshine.  It doesn’t happen often, but when it does it’s the right time to bring out your holo polishes.  Well, in my opinion it’s always the right time for holo, but don’t miss out seeing these polishes in actual bright, direct, natural light. If, like me, you can’t get enough of it, try this Holographic Stamping on holo for some ultimate summer nails.

Holographic Lines (fun with striping tape)

I’ve never been a big fan of striping tape, mostly because I never really got the hang of it.  It never leaves the clean lines I am hoping for, it’s really fiddly and forget about using the tape itself in a design.  I find it always lifts and peels off the nail, despite top coat. But, because Fabiana set it as a challenge on Nail Art Nation, it’s back for one time only. I paired it with pretty polishes to make myself feel better, aka Holographic Lines. Read More
