OOTD & NOTD - Daisy Daisy...

Hello lovely readers!

Yesterday we were blessed with some glorious weather & ’twas spent doing one of my favourite pastimes, partaking in afternoon tea delights with much cake eating, tea drinking & catching up with my lovely blogger pals Saf & Fei who popped down to Windsor to visit. We do love our afternoon teas, we do ;)


My addiction to florals will never die & I adore the daisy print on this dress which I teamed with with my usual black tee & leggings combo as well as my fav black & cream Westwood-esque peeptoe heels.


I love finding nail-spiration wherever I can & this dress was no exception, once I saw that pretty print I thought yup, I'd like me some daisy's on my nails too...

Easter NOTD - Cheeky Chicks!

Hello there lovely readers & Happy Easter weekend! Hope you've all made a start on the chocolate over indulging that is an absolute necessity on this holiday, I plan to feel like a complete heifer before the day is through so I'd best get started!


Now brace yourselves lovelies for the complete & utter mani fail I'm about to throw your way today you lucky things you. I wanted to squeeze in another quick Easter themed mani so literally threw this one together & it was pretty much one of those situations where once I started to realise this mani was going downhill fast, I had already reached the point of no return, there was no going back, I simply had to continue & finish. So here we go dears, some rather psychotic looking cheeky chicks...

Easter NOTD - Duck Egg Nails!

Hullo there lovely readers! Hope you're all having a tip top week, the weather is slowly but steadily picking up, work is good & the countdown has already begun for the beauty that is a four day Easter weekend, also giving two very delightfully shortened weeks in the process! *happy dance*

A wee bit concerned I haven't consumed me an easter egg yet though, plenty of the mini variety but those little uns hardly factor, this is something I plan to rectify greatly in the upcoming days...


Speaking of Easter naturally brings me on to the subject of today’s post...Easter themed nails! Unfortunately I can't seem to find the time lately to do any nail art but I am definitely going to try at the weekend! However I realised after doing this mani how much it resembled duck eggs, which is kind of an Easter theme right? Hey presto quick & easy Easter nails! All ya need? A base colour & some crackle polish!

NOTD - Tribal Tips!

Hello there lovely readers!

Yesterday I headed to the capital for a friends birthday celebrations which included a most incredible Mad Hatters Tea Party at The Sanderson Hotel. You'll probably know by now that I ADORE going for afternoon tea, I also love all things Alice In Wonderland & having the two of those combined yesterday...amazing. From musical sugar boxes to intriguingly flavored teas (apple pie, strawberries & cream to name a few!) & of course not forgetting many delightful nom nom foodstuffs, everything about the experience was absolutely delightful, including the service & I definitely recommend you go!

Today I have some quick nail art to share with you lovelies featuring another beauty from Models Own & sort of continuing with the 'tea' theme I guess with the gorgeous Green Tea!

NOTD - Vintage Roses & Gold...


Hello there lovely readers!

I am seriously in love with this mani design I have to share with you today, it features one of my favourite things...FLORALS....& in fact I've loved it so much I've worn it all week & pretty much co-ordinated my wardrobe around it instead of the other way round...because I'm strange like that ;) It also features one of the fab Hyper Gels that I picked up, the gorgeous Naked Glow.


What do you think? This design was inspired by a fabulously talented IG account I follow @lauramerino12. She has some beaut nail designs & the moment I saw this I new I had to give it a try!


I started off with that divine Models Own Hyper Gel, a range which I am looooving! I used White Light for my Valentines Dotticure Manicure a while back, here I've used Naked Glow which is a fabulous nude & applied so nicely. I of course went for my obligatory two coats.


Next I added a few splodges of dark red on to each nail, about 3 per nail using Nails Inc Chester Square & the polish brush. The great thing about rose designs is the less neat the splodges are, the better they look!


I then added a touch of green for the leaves surrounding each little rose, using a random green nail art pen. To finish off the rose I went back in with the Naked Glow for added detail using a fine nail art brush, however I think these polishes may be too thick for that sort of thing, but in the words of Mastermind, I started so I finished!


Lastly, for a bit of pretty gold goodness I applied a thin slick of topcoat before quickly adding some pretty golden balls from my nail art wheels, in bunches of three to each nail. Another thick coat of topcoat to seal it all & finito!



Hope you liked the design my lovelies! Thanks for reading as always! Have you tried the HyperGels? Are you a fan of floral prints too?



Lotsa love to ya!
