Hi guys, this is my first post this year! I honestly didn't think it'd been that long! This could be a long chatty introduction so if you just want to see the polishes just scroll past this and click on the read more :)

So what's been happening? Not an awful lot, I've been busy with school and my family and friends, trying to make the most of life really (sounds so cringe, sorry). 
As my clinical time at uni has been increased over the past few years it means I haven't been able to wear polish much, in fact I've gone months and months without touching any polish! I've been trying to destash as well because we moved house and I just have no room or need for 1000+ nail polish bottles. I still have loads to get rid of so if you want/need anything hit me up! 
Anyway I'm now going into my fifth and final year and yes it's so cliche but I honestly do not know where the time has gone. It's gonna be a busy and stressful year, if you can, please remember me in your prayers, it's very much appreciated (& needed!)

The most exciting recent thing that's happened lately is that I've been across the pond for the past month! My university sent me on an amazing student exchange program to Boston University for 2 weeks and it was one of the most rewarding and amazing experiences of my life. I then went off to New York where I met up with my family who came over and joined me for a lovely holiday!
I met some incredible people and made some amazing friends, did some sneaky shopping, went whale watching (this was definitely a highlight), ate so so much good food and of course did all the touristy things. I got back to England a few days ago and I've definitely got the holiday blues. Boston was so amazing and it now holds a very special place in my heart, I'm not sure when I'll return, hopefully soon! Anyone reading this from Boston? Leave me a comment! 

And of course NYC lived up to it's expectations, I had such a good time there. One regret? I didn't go to Nordstrom Rack which I've now heard has amazing discounted makeup! Ah well, next time! I'll be posting some holiday pics on instagram so head there if you want to see them.

I could write so much more but I think that's enough for now. Ok lets get back to business and talk polish.

Hey guy, another post? Yep! So a long long time ago The Body Shop sent me 3 nail polishes and a dotting tool and asked for this penguin design. 
I'm really sorry it's so late but better late than never? This is so easy to do, the only tool I used was the dotting tool. I'm pretty sure I did a tutorial, where that is though I'm really not sure?! oops
So I can't remember the name of the colours, I'll check when I go back home! 

Anyway, paint on a black base, use the white(ish) colour to dot the eyes near the cuticle and then outline and fill in the white tummy of the penguin. Once it's dry use the orange to paint on the feet and nose. With the black dot on the eyes and finally use the white colour again to do the final dot of the eyes. 
It's really easy and looks so cute! So give it a try!
You can get all the colours here and the dotting tool here. They make really good stocking fillers!

Hey guys! So once again I'm here, after a ridiculous amount of time, I'm not even going to begin explaining (we'll be here all day!) 
I've really missed blogging and doing my nails, I enjoy it so much and it was such a huge part of my life before, I feel sad that it's not anymore.  
Anyway tonight I have some winter nails that I did ages ago (like over a year ago) I did a gradient with Barry M gelly polishes in Blue Grape and Blackberry and then painted on the little Christmas trees with black acrylic paint. Over that I used El Corazon Confetti polish in 531a, which is the PERFECT snow nail polish! 

So in other news, after nearly 5/6 years? I have changed to oval shape nails! I just wanted a change and am liking it so far! I had to share this with people who wouldn't look at me like I had 2 heads, lol! 
I know I don't post here so if anyone is interested head over to my instagram where I occasionally post!

Hey guys, thankyou for the lovely comments on my last post, I really appreciate them. They're really motivate and encourage me to post more.  
So today I bring you these henna inspired nails. Can you believe I've forgotten the name of this polish? I never forget polish names! Ok, so I've just checked and this is Penny For Your Thoughts by Colors by Llarowe. This colour just makes me think of henna, I'm not actually a fan of henna on me personally but the patterns are gorgeous so I decided to paint something like that on my nails.

Oh gosh, it's been so long, am I even allowed to post here anymore! Life has just got so busy and I just don't paint my nails anymore, let alone do any nail art or take any pictures or edit any pictures! 
It makes me sad that this passion of mine has had to go on the back burner whilst I'm busy trying to get my degree and pretending to be a grown up! I post more frequently on instagram if you want to keep updated 
I don't want to abandon this blog so you'll probably see more posts from me, well hopefully you will.
Today I'm just showing a gorgeous polish from Colors by Llarowe, this is Obsessed With Marilyn, the most gorgeous colour and holographic finish.

Hey everyone, this year I'm only bringing you one halloween design. I saw this design on instagram and immediately felt inspired to recreate it, I actually love the purple gradient more than anything else!
So for the gradient I used Barry M Gelly in Prickly Pear, OPI Bouquet of Violets and Barry M Gelly Plum. I painted all the details with black acrylic paint, except the yellow is Essie Shorty Pants.
