We had our work 'End of Summer Party' this week. End? What?! Summer can't be over yet, I'm not ready!! I figured that there has been a significant lack of summer or festival themed nails on the blog this year, so I should mark the 'end' of the season with something bright and fun. We just got our hands on this summer's new Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Superdrug exclusive shades - perfect!

Now I finally feel like I have a grip on the wedding logistics I've finally got around to thinking about my beauty regime - a little late but oh well! What I really need to decide is what to do with my nails. As a nail blogger everyone has been asking me, and most people want to know if I'll be wearing nail art. I'm sorry to say that I won't be, although I secretly love the idea I don't want to look back on the photos in years to come and have any regrets.

I know I say it every time I post but we're so sorry we have been absent for the past few months. I have been completely wrapped up in wedding preparations but as there's only 3 weeks (eek!!) to go now I'm starting to see the light at the tunnel and am itching to get back into blogging. My nails are in awful shape after being neglected for so long so please be patient with me whilst I get them back up to standard!
We were very excited to be welcomed into the Sally Hansen Insider Group recently, not just because they sent us flip flops with a cat face on!! Mainly because it gave us the perfect excuse to pull our finger out and get back into blogging.

Although we've not been posting very frequently this year, it doesn't mean we've stopped doing nail art. We've been busy working with Pretty Upfront on a new video for you which they posted a few weeks ago. A bit slow to get round to sharing it with you all here - oops!!
This video tutorial is super quick and simple but the design is a stunner. Soft matte pink nails with a cute gem designed inspired by the always gorgeous Rihanna! We love this look, and it's perfect for wedding season.
Take a look and let us know what you think...

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!

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?

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?!
