Advent Nails: December 23


Slightly different angle today in that I’ve used a foot pic rather than hand! I took this photo just before leaving for a friend’s wedding. I was struggling to find a nail polish that worked with my dress and started to run out of time so couldn’t do a French mani. In the end I…

Yet another blue Monday, maybe because it’s the last one before Christmas and you’re yet to finish your shopping list! I’ve already posted a few Nails Inc Gel pics, but this dark and decadent navy hue perfectly encapsulates the colour palette of AW14! Again, it gives a smooth, polished finish, but it’s more the colour…

It’s not the best pic, but I love these monochrome spotty nails from Smoss! Making the most of her nail art pen she makes a really simple idea pop with plenty of fun. You could even just dot an accent nail for even more of a stand out style!

Second day in Bruges eating mussels, drinking beer and snacking on plenty of Belgian chocolate! My pic today was taken back in August when Very organised their Beauty Bus tour and I decided I just had to try Alexa Silk! I absolutely loved it as I wear dark nail polishes, but never black all over…

Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you’re all having a brilliant day… Obviously I had to use a new pic for today and so have decided to mix two of my fave polishes of the year. My Louboutin rouge and Nails Inc snowflake. Red with a sprinkling of snow to the tips is incredibly Christmassy if I…

As it’s Christmas Eve I thought I’d get all classy and festive… …so I’ve chosen this pic from only a few weeks ago. Forget the red, it’s all about the pale gold Chanel polish that glitters and shimmers under the lights of the Christmas tree. It was a birthday polish and just absolutely beautiful. I…

I don’t often buy O.P.I nail polish, but I love this deep purple polish I bought a few months ago. The dark, rich hue is perfect for AW14 and with a little smattering of glitter has a touch of sparkle to the finish. It’s perfect to mark a pre-Christmas trip to Bruges!

Ok so today is a 70s theme day in work…not too sure why and not really too sure what I have in my wardrobe that looks seventies… …so loosely based on the flower power of the late sixties/early seventies, I’ve chosen these super cute Ciate flower nails! I absolutely loved doing these – simple, slightly…

Calling on my equally nail polish obsesses friend Smoss once again, today’s post is another sticker! I look forward to Smoss’ WhatsApp pics as they’re usually full of emoticons and her latest delve I to the world of nail art. The image above is Sally Hansen’s nail stickers. I’m yet to try them as I’m…

Ahh Tuesday! I’ve been waiting for a whole year for this day… I’m off to the zoo tonight to see the Lantern Show and I couldn’t be more excited! I know it’s a cheat as they’re in the box but I love these fierce tiger nails and think the tigers at the zoo would like…

Monday…sometimes people feel a bit blue at the beginning of the week… I say embrace the blue! I love Nails Inc gel polishes and this cornflower hue was my first new edition gel in their cool bottles and I’m still in live with it. I bought this polish back in like June, but have worn…

Sunday, lovely Sunday! I’m so excited and happy today…I’m iff to see the final Hobbit film tonight in my fave little cinema that’s so old school it still has intervals! For something a little more contemporary I’ve chosen this pic…it’s the Nails Inc Alexa Silk polish with a Mac top coat. What I love most…
