Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

One Topcoat to Rule Them All For some girls (like me) the nail game struggle is real. I mean like this: Image from: http://weheartit.com/entry/group/29141198 Although honestly there isn’t much difference between the right and left hands on me, or feet either – I’m clearly bad at all fingers and toes. Anyway, I get an A for…

Galaxy Nails aka Barry M Magnetic Blue

“Ooh, they look like the galaxy!” exclaimed a friend at a wedding party dinner recently. “Your nails are so cool and awesome Ms. H!” squealed my students. “I like your nails very much,” said a co-worker, “they’re a very beautiful colour.” These are all reactions I’ve had to Barry M’s Magnetic Blue nail varnish.

L’Oréal Color Riche – Wild Purple

This week’s nails – Feelin’ Hot Hot Hot

I just thought I’d share this oh so pretty colour by OPI with you. We all know that OPI does really nice pinks, and this is no exception. It’s a bright, vibrant pink, perfect for summer and my camera phone photos really don’t do it justice. It’s a much more vivid, hot pink when you…

This week’s nails – the “accent nail”

Please ignore the state of my cuticles, as well as my messy and inexpert nail varnish application. (I tell myself one can’t be good at everything, to make myself feel better) Ahem, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, as I tried something new this week, I wanted to upload it. This is my…
