Mermaid Scale Nails

Hi everyone, 
So after wearing Barry M Pacific (see swatches here) on my nails for a couple of days I knew I wanted to try out some nail art with it. I immediately had the idea of mermaid scales because the colour reminded me of the sea and the scale design on the nail polish bottle cap!
Here's a look at the design:

I used Barry M Pacific and Barry M Nail Art Pen in White

*This product was provided for me to review

Hi everyone,
Today I have a review of some studs from the Born Pretty Store. When I first saw these studs on their website I couldn't resist - they're so pretty!

These studs come in packs of 10 and are available in a variety of different sizes: 2mm, 3mm and 4mm. I decided to choose the 3mm studs, product number 12422. You can view the studs here.

Blogging Break

Hi everyone,
So today's post is a little different, but I just thought I'd tell you all that over the next few months I won't be blogging as much (or at all), I'm going to be on a little blogging break.

The next few months are a really important time for me. You may or may not know but I am currently in my final year of A-levels before I go off to university. I really want to get the grades to make sure I get into my first choice. 

In order to do this I am going to have to stop painting my nails (I'm not quite sure how I'm going to manage this yet!) until my exams are over and therefore I cannot blog about them. I have prepared some posts already and will schedule them over the next few weeks. I will still try to take part in the The Lacquer Legion and the Polish Party Challenge.

My exams are finished in the middle of June so after that I am free to paint my nails as many times as I want and show you all the designs I come up with!

If anyone would like to do a guest post on my blog, just send me an email at:

Thank you for understanding,

Models Own Roman Candle Swatch

*This nail polish was a competition prize
Hi everyone,
So today I thought I'd show you another swatch from Models Own's Fireworks collection.
Instead of showing you this collection over black like the majority of the swatches I have seen, I've decided to use a different base colour to show the versatility of the collection.
Today's nail polish is Models Own Roman Candle.

Rocket is available from the Models Own Website, Boots and Superdrug for £5.00

Simple Gradient

Hi everyone,
So today's design is something I've been wanting to do for such a long time, but have only just got round to trying out. I really like the look of gradients with a layer of glitter on top, so I decided to have a go at doing one myself.
Here's what I came up with:

I used Max Factor Mini Cool Jade, Maybelline Color Show Urban Turquoise, Fingr's Heart 2 Art The Boys in Blue and Technic Treasure Chest (Gold glitter)
