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

I got married!

It was a lovely summer’s day with friends and family present. There was good food, wine, dancing, singing, emotional speeches, laughter, tears (I didn’t think it was possible to cry so much and be so happy at the same time), photographs, hugging and love.

You can use tape to get the lines perfect, but this ‘triangle’ … Continue reading

Purple glitter Jessica nail polish design

I bought this Jessica nail polish over 4 years ago, and it has served me well. It’s a dark plum colour, perfect for autumn. It looks great on long and short nails. I’m getting to the end of the bottle, but I think it’s got at least one more manicure left in it. It’s weird, … Continue reading
