Florals for a French Wedding

Recently we received a gorgeous package of new summer gel polishes from Red Carpet Manicure. Their 'Escape to Paradise' collection is the perfect mix of brights, neons and pastels for your holidays! I already tried out Until the Sun-Sets* for my holiday to Portugal a few weeks ago. It's an absolutely stunning neon coral and was perfect! I have awful thin bendy nails so it did start to peel a little for me, but lasted a good 7-10 days before I couldn't resist peeling it off (naughty!) My Mum went for Frolic in the Sand* and hers lasted ages so that goes to show the benefits of looking after your nails!

Easy Pastel Ombre Nail Tutorial with Pretty Up Front

It seems like the only time we post anything these days is when one of our YouTube friends releases a new nail tutorial video. Thankfully they keep asking us back to do them! Today we have an easy pastel ombre nail tutorial that we recorded with Pretty Up Front - check out their channel here

This design is super cute for summer and a great way to mix up a couple of your favourite pastels. We know how hard it is to choose just one! All you need is a few different polishes and a piece of sponge. This could be the corner of a washing up sponge, or one from your makeup bag, anything will work! The best thing about this one is how easy it is to do with your non-dominant hand so you'll have a lovely symmetrical mani!

To see all the steps have a look at the video below...

Will you be rocking pastel nails this summer?

Gigi Hadid Inspired Festival Nails Tutorial

We've teamed up with the fab peeps over at ICON UK again today to bring you another video tutorial. This time we've gone full festival with a super cute Gigi Hadid-inspired mix and match mani. Palm trees, luscious lips, the whole shebang! 

This look was so much fun to recreate, it feels like forever since we did a full on mix and match so it was really refreshing. Fun and funky nails are just perfect for festival season, when else can you get away with it really?! Check out the video below for all the steps...

Are you off to a festival this summer? What do you have planned for your nails?!

Coconut Infusions Floral Aztec

I can't work our why these photos came out with such a pink hue and it's really bugging me, so first off, sorry about that! This mani is very similar to one I created last summer but I absolutely loved it so decided to have another go. I think I still prefer my first attempt as I the colour mix was better but this design is so cute for summer! Ironically it's pissing it down with rain as I write this...

Jamberry Nail Wraps

Quite a while ago now (wrist slap for us!) we received an exciting package of goodies from the lovely Leah Bell at Jamberry. This package included a collection of gorgeous Jamberry nail wraps and a polish - but we'll show you that later. We've never tried wraps before so I was very intrigued to test them out and this week I finally got my chance!

Barry M Coconut Infusion Nail Paint

We are incredibly behind on our blogging at the moment. So much so that I now have a box of samples that need to be tested and reviewed - usually I can't wait to break into packages! Clearly going back to commuting to an office every day and planning a wedding have been seriously eating into my nail time. Not good! Anyway, a little behind the curve, but today we have Barry M's latest collection - Coconut Infusion...
