All That Jazz Be Fierce

This beautiful polish is from the All That Jazz ‘Spotlight Affair’ collection. As soon as I laid my eyes on this collection I was won over. These are gorgeous, classic shades that I know I will get loads of wear from.

A Day of Gelish Training With Nail Harmony UK

A Day of Gelish Training With Nail Harmony UK

A few weeks ago I was kindly invited to a day of Gelish training with the Nail Harmony UK team. I managed to get really lost on the way and was really late, but thankfully there were delicious pastries waiting for us. I am terrible at recognising other bloggers so it took me ages to realise who I was in the room with, and once I did I spent the rest of the day trying not to fangirl all over them: Alice from One Nail To Rule Them All and Sammy from The Nailasaurus are as close as you can get to nail blogging royalty and are both really lovely.

The Lacquer Lab Festive Trio Nail Polishes

At the Birchbox event I went to a few weeks ago I met a blogger called Emily and fangirled a bit when I found out that she was one of the creators of The Lacquer Lab. I am always on the look out for independent, UK based nail polish brands and this one had been on my radar for a while. I was lucky enough to be sent their new limited edition festive trio to review and I will apologise now for the photo heavy post: these polishes deserve a lot of pictures!

Introducing: The Lacquer Lab Festive Trio nail polishes

So here is the trio, L-R: Fred & Ginger, I Want A Pony, and Snow Globe. Don’t you just feel Christmassy looking at them?

The Big Nail Varnish Destash!

The Big Nail Varnish Destash

I thought it was about time for me to go through my nail varnish collection and try to whittle it down. I have so many polishes that I never use (or have never used!) because they just get lost in the pile. So I’m sorting through them, picking out my favourites, throwing some away and putting some up for sale. It is going to be traumatic so I would appreciate your support at this difficult time.

On a more positive note, I rediscovered some forgotten favourites –  hooray!

Glitter Nail Varnish Removal Tutorial

Glitter Nail Varnish Removal Tutorial

I get a lot of questions on twitter and instagram about tips to easily remove glitter nail varnish, so I thought I’d do a quick video tutorial about it.

All you will need to recreate this video is: Pure acetone, squares of tin foil, a few cotton pads and some killer dance moves. All will become clear…

Let me know if this was helpful, I’d love to hear how you get on. Hopefully you can bring your neglected nail varnishes out of retirement now that it’s not such a chore to remove them!
