I Love Nail Polish (again!) – Princeton x AC Slater

Hey honies!

It’s Thursday evening here, so just one day to go before the weekend, and that feels prettttttty good ! Monday is a day off work in France, and you can bet I’m looking forward to it! Work is super busy right now, and after next week, should start to calm down a bit. It’s great to see the light at the end of the tunnel :)

Butter London Queen Vic & Barry M Nail Art Pen

Hey honey bunnies!

Just a quickie today! I wore the gorgeous Queen Vic to work yesterday, because it’s juuuust a little bit different, but still very highly pigmented! It’s the only Butter London that I’ve ever had bubbling problems with, but I love my berry shades so much that I can cope with that ;-)Butter London Queen Vic  - Copy Continue reading

#NailLinkup – Easter themed pastel & black nails for the Nail Art Ideas Linkup

I hope everyone had a nice weekend! I have a huge case of the Sunday Night Blues, personally. It’s hard when you work long hours during the week. I have been so tired this weekend, that I don’t feel like I really made the most of it… And it’s already over :( #Naillinkup Easter Nail Art - Illamasqua  - Copy

Anyway, we’re now only a week away from Easter! Which was very fun when I was living back home in a big family, I remember carting home dozens of chocolate eggs for the kids! But now I’m older and living far away from home, it’s not so much fun. Until nail art gets involved! So, this mani was inspired by the Illamasqua Speckled Egg polishes, which I bought last year and wrote about here. They’re still my only Illamasqua polishes, since they are very hard to get hold of here in France.

I wanted to do an Easter bunny, but without being too ‘cute’, so a black silhouette seemed perfect! I did it over two Ciaté polishes – Candy Floss and Ferris Wheel – with a Barry M Nail Art Pen.#Naillinkup Easter Nail Art - Ciaté Ferris Wheel  - Copy

And, although I loved wearing this mani glossy, it was even better once mattified… Well, I think so, anyway!

If you do Easter nail art this year, we would love it if you added your mani to our linkup! You don’t have to be a blogger – there is an option to upload a photo from your computer, too!

#Naillinkup – Bird Nail Art (MoYou-London Mother Nature 02)

Gah, this week has been a busy one! Sorry for the lack of posts! I usually love to unwind by blogging, but this week has been so frustrating, that I haven’t been able to get into the groove. Anyhow, now it’s the weekend, so I’m a lot happier, of course :)

Today’s nails are for the ‘Bird’ prompt in the Nail Art Ideas Linkup. Which seemed like a good time to pair Zoya Dove with MoYou-London Mother Nature 02….

My Pointy Gel Nails

Hello my darlings!

Only Tuesday, huh? What a long week this is starting out to be :( the weather where I am has gone cooler and rainier, which is a disappointment. At least the clocks changed and I get to see a bit more daylight now!

So, on Sunday I decided to try doing gel nails again. You can click here if you want to see my first attempt!

And, well I mostly did it by filing, but I wanted to make them pointy! What do you think?

I Love Nail Polish – Charmingly Purple

You’ve already heard about how much I love I Love Nail Polish‘s gorgeous boutique nail lacquers. But did I also tell you that the customer service is great?

Well, it is! When I pre-ordered the Spring Collection, there was a little mistake, and I received Charmingly Purple instead of Cutie Pop. So I sent off a quick email to let them know, to find out where I needed to send Charmingly back to, and got a very quick (and apologetic) reply saying that not only would Cutie Pop be sent out pronto, but that I could keep Charmingly ! At first I wasn’t sure, because I already have Chloé, which at first look is similar. But then I put them both side-by-side and realised that I love Charmingly too and that I wanted to hold onto it :) soooo…. here are my swatches, so that you can want it too!
