Model's Own have a gorgeous glitter collection called MirrorBall, that is great for an all year use. They add a pop of glitz and colour to whatever base coat you've got.

Since winter is on it's away, and our wardrobe are darkening just as the skies are, our nails must adapt. So no more, fruity, colourful, pastel nails to match our pretty summer dress.

So what I decided to do is carry on with the dotted design, but spice it up a bit by using contrasting colours and by adding in some stripes. I started off by applying a … Continue reading Dots and Stripes Nails <3
This week I wanted a very girly/Barbie girl look. I haven't used my glitter nail varnish in a while nor have I used my new nail slices yet, so I thought I should add it all together, to make this super girly look. For this I used: Models Own 3-1 for my base and top … Continue reading Nails of the Week
I recently discovered a new technique to getting rid of nail varnish without making too much of a mess and more importantly without damaging my nails too much. It also saves on cotton balls. It's easy to do and not as messy as the foil remover technique (even though this technique is the best for glittery … Continue reading Nail Varnish Remover Technique
