Olympic round up

So the London 2012 Olympics are now over. It came, it dazzled, it inspired, and now we can only hope the Paralympics is as awesome. I am looking forward to learning loads about it, and just getting back into watching new sports that I’ve never seen before! I had three posts on Olympic-inspired nail art … Continue reading

Olympic manicure 2 – medals

So my other Olympic manicure got me a lot of compliments, but it was so colourful and bright, and it’s easy to get tired of a loud manicure. You immediately want to switch it up. Also, it’s only the Olympics every 4 years, so I needed to fit in at least one more look! This … Continue reading

Crocodile

These are the nails I’ve been sporting so far this week, and I love them. Flashy, bit of bling, festive and office-appropriate (well my office has really gone for it this year, we have two Christmas trees and we’re only 30 employees!) I started off with a gold base, I wore just the gold colour … Continue reading

Preppy nails

Ingredients list Prep time: ~1 hours, for each manicure. Plenty of time for sister chats. Base coat: Dior base coat … Continue reading
