Monday Mani Week 3... And 4!

Hey lovelies!! So I'm catching up on myself tonight as the last 2 week have been a touch crazy. I've come to dread the January/February crossover as it means 2 things. I have to move house and I always get sick. Those who were here last year will remember I was ill, moved house AND went to IMATS all in one week! Mental. Thankfully IMATS isn't till June this year so we don't have that again but I was struck by the dreaded Norovirus last week & this week is the big move. Thats my excuse for not posting this on time and I'm sticking to it ;) Moving on! Week 3 itself was yellow and I used Ciaté with decal stickers. The star sign is Aquarius as the 23rd of Jan was the rise of Aquarius. And the swallows are just because swallows are cute. The decals are Nail Tattoos from Topshop and are great for reliving your youth if, like me, you were obsessed with transfer tattoos as a child! Week 4 was green and I went for the 5 nail ombré fade starting out at a mint

Mani Monday Part 2

Week 2 is Orange week and we have some newbies to the challenge! My bestie, Gayle, has joined us via instagram! Check her out at @kaspanda86. You can also find, me @faeribex, Bex @bexberrymua, Caroline @mademoisellerouge and our second newcomer Jen @jenlingyang, so if you post your nails on instagram, be sure to tag one of us so we can see them! So what did I do this week? Well I decided to go for a simple fade using Illamasqua Gamma & a Nails Inc Instyle special orange with some stud embellishments. Now here's where I cheated, it was actually Bex who offered to do them for me & hey I'm not gonna say no to someone doing my nails! Simple but pretty, what do you think? Are you joining us in the challenge? Don't forget to post your links or tag us in your Instagrams! Bex xx

Mani Monday Pt1

You didn't think I'd just leave you with an introduction post and no challenge did you?! So little faith. ;) For day 1 we have the colour Red as our theme and I am in mourning. The red I'm about to show is my ultra favourite Red. My go to polish. And I lost it shortly after deciding to use it for this post. This will hopefully explain the slight wear on the tips haha! RIP MAC Red. We knew so briefly. ;) [Edit] PS Don't forget to check out and for their contributions today!! Xx

New year, New Challenge.

So you'd think that after the Ciaté calendar I would have had enough nail polish to last me a lifetime! But no, my obsession holds much deeper than is probably healthy. And with a new year I received a new challenge from the lovely Bex over at and Caroline from This time instead of a daily challenge though we've decided it should be a weekly Mani Monday. Much less intensive on our nails. You can see, below, the categories if you want to join in too. We'd love to see everyone's creations as we go along. Bring on the Mani Mondays!
