I haven’t done a nail art post in a while, so I thought I’d finally post a mani I did recently. I painted this ladybird design using Furless Bitch, a solid black, and Sea Siren Cabin Fever, a bright red creme. Unfortunately Cabin Fever’s designed to be worn on its own, so it took quite a few layers until the …

Check back here for my 2012 favourites! I road tested a LOT of products in 2013 – a veritable truckload!

Artsy Wednesday: Inspired by Disney (Star Wars nails)

Today’s Artsy Wednesday theme is Disney. I decided to do something a little different – Star Wars nails! As you might know, I’ve ready done a whole series of Disney princess nails with ranty essays attached (Jasmine, Snow White, Mulan, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Pocahontas, Belle and Ariel). Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012 and there’ll be three new films coming out.    From …

It’s an Australia-based nail art and stamping plate store that’s particularly well known for their own in-house designed plates, some of which I have to show you today. Julia, the owner, gave these to me to review at the National (well, East Coast) Aussie Nails Meetup last week, and all the girls got grabby …
