Hi everyone,
I received my April Birchbox and love the magazine this month as it is all inspired by spring. In there was a manicure with step by step instructions on how to do it. I love blossom trees so thought I would give it a try and LOVE the results!!! The manicure and instructions were devised by Amelia from www.xameliax.com And you can check out her blog for further lovely posts.

Polishes used are:
Barielle Green with Envy and Blissful
Rimmel Deliciously Dark
Natural collection in White Tip

Dotting tool and the polishes used!!

 So what do you think? Do you love it as much as I do?

No Water Marbled Nails- Fairground inspired

The lovely Carousel at Cheshire Oaks

Hello everyone!
I recently went away for a minibreak and the boys went on an old traditional roundabout (see photo). These are really easy to create using a dotting tool you just blob on blobs and lightly drag them and swirl together. Follow this with a glitter topcoat and voila, your done.
Nail polishes used were:
Base Barielle polish in Swizzle Stix (blue)
Swirl A Barielle polish in  Coral Reef (orange)
Swirl B Barielle polish in Blissful (light pink)
Topcoat Rimmel polish in Disco Ball (glitter)

Here are some more pictures and one of the boys on the ride (don't worry it was not moving at that point!!)






So, what do you think? Will you give it a go?
