I'm working on a little project at the moment that has got me looking through all of our old posts and is making me want to recreate them all! Well, not all of them, some are a bit shocking, but most of them. I came across this one and knew straight away that I wanted to redo it. Not because the original was particularly bad but the picture annoys me as I whacked a hefty filter on it. Back in the old days when we used to use filters and borders and all sorts of jazz to detract from our actual designs.

We're a touch behind the curve on these Festival polishes from Models Own, so you may have already seen some swatches. We've done our best to get them up here as soon as possible for you, but they have been available for a few weeks. There are four collections within the Festival range - Festival Nail Polish, Festival Hair Spray, Festival Face Paints and Festival Lipsticks. The running theme is bright, bright and bright! We've got a review of all five Festival Nail Polishes for you today.

day now and then I get completely lost on Instagram clicking through to accounts that might interest me. Hours pass by and before I know it I'm getting a message from Jo like 'Did you just like an account called grandpaglass?!?!?' Yes Jo, I did. It's just hard because I will see some little thing that will inspire a design and I follow in the hope that more nailspo will come. We always credit when we've been inspired by something and it's just polite to follow, no? Anyway, that's how I found the inspo for today's design.

Today's post is brought to you in collaboration with Beauty at Tesco and spring! The BaT team asked us to create a 'Spring Blooms' design and so we knew what we had to do - full floral, oh yes! We've created bright pink roses with grey leaves before as part of a mix and match and loved it so much we thought it was about time to do it as a full mani. Florals are perfect for spring and summer so now's the time to get practising!

Alabama Worley is one of my all time favourite characters. The first time I watched True Romance I completely fell in love, not only with the story but with Alabama, played by Patricia Arquette. She's kinda cute and plays a bit ditsy but she's also one hell of a bad-ass and her outfits? Oh. Em. Gee. I wish I could pull them off! So for a while I have been wanting to create a mani inspired by her clothes and here they are. I hope I did her justice.

Now we've got you craving a Shy FX session with our title we'll move onto the nails. All this sunshine is clearly getting to us. Yesterday Emma created a super summery sweet treats mani and today I've come over all tropical!

Summer is coming so naturally I am on a diet again. I say a diet but I am just trying to eat a bit healthier and take care of myself a bit more. It's just so hard when my main food-stuff is cheese. I miss pizza so much! All this healthy eating business means that all I can think of are sweet treats. Hence today's manicure.
