Turquoise Black & Gold Layered / Double Stamping

Hey everyone! Hope you’re having a good day. Lately I’ve been more and more interested in nail art (keeping to my self-challenge of doing 20 nail art posts this year!) and a little while back my friend Charlie from Pocket Money Polishes kindly lent me some of her stamping plates. It’s taken me a little while to post this manicure I’m afraid – I gave her the plates back at least a month ago! 😛

I’ve always loved the combination of turquoise black and gold, like gold-set turquoise jewellery, and I thought it would probably look nice on nails too 🙂

Picture Polish Escapades

My Picture Polish love affair continues – I’ve been waiting to show you this nail polish ever since my nails all broke – it’s been my one of my favourites all winter! (I am living in fear of it running out, and I’ve only had it 2 months!) But I felt it needed a nice even set of nails to show it in its full glory.

Picture Polish Escapades is another collaboration shade; this one with Nail Escapades (one of my very favourite blogs!). I am all over it! It came out at the tail end of 2014, along with Picture Polish Lollipop, which I reviewed here.

Picture Polish Fool’s Gold

Hey there! So, I’m still in a ‘sod the winter’ type of mood, and I’ve been wearing nice summery shades in defiance of the cold weather – who’s with me?! One of my top 15 nail polish favourites of 2014 was Picture Polish Fool’s Gold, which I’ve never properly swatched on here, so out that came. Oh, and (at last) my index nail has grown out to a semi-acceptable length… but now I have a split in my ring nail – I blame the cold weather!

Fool’s Gold is another of the Picture Polish collaboration shades (where they work with a blogger to create a colour). This one was done with Sammy of The Nailasaurus, who is a fellow UK nail blogger 🙂

Geometric Nail Art

One of my (blogging) New Year’s resolutions was to do at least 20 nail art posts this year – that’s just under 2 a month, and I have just realised that the end of January is fast approaching! I actually did this particular manicure about 2 weeks ago, but got distracted writing my 2014 Year in Review post and my  4 Year Blogiversary post – apologies! You will also notice that my nails are particularly short in this post – I had a low break over Christmas and decided to cut them all down and start over. Somehow that always feels so refreshing! (Anyone else?)

Anyway, I dug out some old nail vinyls that I haven’t used in a while, and decided to play around with them. I fancied something angular so out came the lightning shapes.

Picture Polish Wisteria

Hello! Happy New Year! Hope you all had a great festive season, whatever you celebrate. I spent time with my mum and brother, my mum’s partner and his family, and my boyfriend’s family too – it’s always so good to spend time with the people you love! Anyway… I broke a nail and since mine have been quite battered and dry lately I cut them all back, so I’m going back into the photo archive so show you an oldie but a goodie!

You probably already know my undying love for Picture Polish, an independent Australian nail polish brand. I daren’t even think how much I’ve spent on their nail polish in the last year! You might also know that I’m not normally a big fan of cremes from indie brands – I tend to think that I’d rather spend the money on a unique nail polish, while cremes are ten a penny in most highstreet brands. But for some reason, this one really drew me in earlier in 2014, and I had to have it.

This is Picture Polish Wisteria – so-called after Wisteria Lane from Desperate Housewives (which I used to watch like an addict!).
