Olympic rings

It’s the Olympics! Wohoo! I started doing this manicure when watching the Opening Ceremony. How weird, how wonderful, and how very British! I’m getting very excited to watch the Games, I predict most evenings now will be spent glued in front of the TV.                   Ingredients list … Continue reading

Royal Wedding nails

Another old nail design, from back in April when this country was going mad for weddings and the new addition to the royal family.
