When I started my blog (on Tumblr, about 7 years ago!) I focused on nails, partly because I loved a good manicure but more importantly because a blog filled with nails meant that I never had to show my face. I have rosacea, a skin condition that currently has no cure, and it makes me so self-conscious that even now it’s a struggle to take and publish photos. This is my rosacea story, in collaboration with Eau Thermale Avène.

I’m excited to share a lovely range of wintery polishes today: the new Leighton Denny Heritage Collection *. There are some obvious A/W shade choices in the range, but also some unusual options if you’re a bit red/green/gold polish-ed out already!

Who else is excited for the launch of the new season of Stranger Things? I’ve purposely kept my evening free so that I can binge watch it and I’m currently avoiding Twitter in the hope of escaping spoilers! Of course, as soon as I heard the new season was out I knew I had to do some Stranger Things nail art
