Red Robin inspired by Hobbs

As it's still November I'm calling this a winter mani, rather than anything too festive. Emma and I have a bit of an unwritten rule about getting into the holiday mood too early, if we started in November we'd definitely run out of designs before the big day! Anyway, these nails were inspired by my super cosy winter robin socks from Hobbs - a lovely gift from my Mother-in-law-to-be.

Back To Burberry

For the past couple of weeks I have been toying with the idea of getting myself a Burberry scarf. I even went in to touch them the other day which we all know was a bad idea! I really want a deep red one with my initials monogrammed. They are beautiful but so expensive. So for now I will settle with having Burberry nails.

Gold Tips for Beauty at Tesco

It's #manicuremonday again which means another design for the lovely folk over at Beauty at Tesco! This week we've created a simple party mani which is super easy to recreate. Any deep berry shade teamed with gold glitter is going to look simply stunning! We used a little trick to add extra depth to this design by sponging some gold polish onto the tips before adding the glitter. This just helps to get a smoother gradient and stops you having to add multiple layers of glitter polish which can end up getting all thick and gloopy!

Evixi Gel Review & Marble Mani

gel nail art
I mentioned last week that we recently received two new at home gel kits to test out and I've been busy reviewing them both for you. This week we have Evixi Gel, described on their website as 'long lasting, no chips, instant drying gel nail polish'. Firstly I must apologise to the lovely people at Evixi for giving them the wrong address, I'm very glad that the postman managed to get it to the right place in the end!

OPI Hello Kitty 2016 Swatches & Review

I think OPI are trying to kill me with excitement. When I heard that they were doing a Hello Kitty collaboration I screamed a little bit. When it dropped on my doormat I was beside myself! Look how cute the bottles are! Hello Kitty is my spirit animal! I really don't understand the fascination with the little icon but I know that I love her.

Lipstick Print for Beauty At Tesco

We've teamed up with the lovely folk at Beauty At Tesco again for today's look. The theme this week was lipstick print and I really wanted to try a cutesy style. It kind of worked but my black nail art pen gave me a headache again for being too thick. I need to find a finer one - any suggestions? Originally I was going for a 80s look but it didn't quite turn out like that! I still kind of like it though. 

I used a heap of Barry Ms for this including: Do You Pink I'm Sexy?*, Plum On Baby*, and Sprint Finish*.Watch this space for a mani using these colours again as I took some snaps before the lipsticks went on. 

Beauty at Tesco will be sharing more photos of this design today so keep an eye out! Make sure to follow them on InstagramPinterest, and Twitter, or visit their blog here.
