A-Z of Polish - O is for......Off 2 Paradise

Hi guys!  Sorry I didn't get my Theme Buffet mani up yesterday - I made a start on the post but didn't have time to finish it in the end, so that will go up tomorrow instead.  In the meantime, today is still Thursday, which means it's time for another letter of the A-Z of Polish.  This week we're up to "O", which means we've reached the halfway point already!
*Picture heavy post.

Tri-Polish Tuesdays

 Hiya lovelies!  Today I have the final Tri-Polish Tuesdays mani for July, before we start again with a new trio of colours next week.  So, today I have some floral stamping decals that I put over Barry M - Greenberry.  I've wanted to do decals with this plate since I saw this gorgeous mani from Tracey @ Simply Into My Nails.  She also did a fab tutorial to go with this design, so if you want to learn stamping decals I would strongly urge you to check it out.........

Colour me Crazy - Yellow

Hiya lovelies! I hope you're all having a great weekend.  Today I'm just squeezing in this weeks prompt for the Colour me Crazy challenge, being run through the British Nail Bloggers group.  Last weeks prompt was a toughie - orange - but now here comes the really hard one: Yellow.  From what I've seen, yellow is one of the most hated polish colours out there.  I don't exactly hate it, but I don't use it very often......

A-Z of Polish: N is for.....Night Prowl

Hi guys, and welcome to another week of the A-Z of Polish.  This weeks letter is "N", and whilst I didn't have many polishes starting with the letter N, I did have one untried that I couldn't wait to wear..........

Tri-Polish Tuesday's

 Hi guys, just a quick, and fairly late post from me today.  I haven't got much time, but I didn't want to miss the Tri Polish challenge today, so I'm squeezing it in quickly....

Colour me Crazy - Week 2: Orange

*One product in this post was discounted in exchange for review
 Hiya lovelies!  I was actually hoping to get this post up yesterday, but it was about 11pm by the time I got around to it, so I decided to hang on to it until today.  So, this week is the second week of the Colour me Crazy challenge being hosted in the British Nail Bloggers group. The prompt for this week is orange, which would be a tough prompt even if I hadn't used orange in 3 mani's this month already.........

A-Z of Polish: M is for My Vampire is Buff

 Hiya lovelies!  It's Thursday, which means time for another A-Z of Polish post.  This weeks letter is "M", and today I'm featuring the well-loved OPI - My Vampire is Buff.  This is a beautiful pale nude, that is the perfect neutral background for a busy design like today's.......

Tri-Polish Tuesdays

FingerFood's Theme Buffet - Skittles

Hi lovelies, and welcome to another week of FingerFood's Theme Buffet.  The prompt this week is Skittles, and usually when I think of a skittle mani, my brain thinks, same colour scheme, with different designs.  This week I wanted to be a little different though, so I decided to do the same design in different colours......

Colour me Crazy: Red

Hiya lovelies!  Today I'm starting a new weekly challenge being run by the British Nail Bloggers group.  It's fairly similar to FingerFood's Theme Buffet, in that it's just one prompt per week, and you can post whichever day of the week you prefer..........

A-Z of Polish - L is for Lincoln Square Lavender

Hi guys :D  Since today is Thursday, it's time for another A-Z of polish mani.  This week we're up to the letter L, and the polish I picked is NYC Quick Dry - Lincoln Square Lavender.  My lovely mum spotted a bunch of reduced NYC's in the local chemist, so she came home with 4 of them - 2 for her and 2 for me :D  I guess my addiction's rubbing off on her too!

June, in mani's.........

Hiya lovelies!  No "proper" post from me today, so instead I've put together a little clickable collage of all the mani's I've posted in the month of June.  The wonderful Charlie from Pocket Money Polishes did one of these the other day, and I thought it was a really lovely idea, so I stole it :p  (don't worry, I warned her I was going to do so)
I know sometimes I forget what mani's I've done recently, and they're my nails, so I'm hoping you guys don't mind a quick refresher either.

I actually did quite a lot of swatches in June, but I think I managed to balance it out with enough nail art to not be too boring.  Don't get me wrong, I love swatch blogs, but I've always intended this blog to be a mixture of swatches and nail art, right from the word go, so I like to keep a good balance.  :D

Certainly not my best month, but considering how lacking in mojo I was last month, I don't think it's too shabby.  What do you guys think?  Which mani is your favourite?

*You should be able to click on any of the mani's, and the original blog post should open up in a new tab.  I've checked these, and they seem to be working, but I am a total noob when it comes to any kind of HTML/coding, so let me know if there's any major problems, and I'll see if I can get them fixed :D

(And yes, I had crap-tonnes of fun blindly feeling my way around the language that is HTML today!  I really have no clue what I'm doing, and tried to re-size my image without editing the coordinates of the image.  Yeh....)

Tri-Polish Tuesdays

 Hiya lovelies! I'm sorry I've been away for a few days again, I've been really busy with work, and exhausted when I wasn't, so I just needed to see out the rest of the week :/  I have a couple of days off now, so hopefully I'll be able to get some stuff prepared for later in the week.  Today however, is the second Tuesday of the month, which means it's time for another Tri-Polish Challenge mani.  If you didn't catch last weeks post, the colours for this month are green, purple and pink......

A-Z of Polish - K is for Key Lime and Kiwi Bikini

 Hi guys, and welcome to another week of the A-Z of Polish series.  Can you believe we're on the 11th week already, 12th if you count the week we had off!  I think when we get to 14 I will do a little 1st half round up post :D  Back to this week though, our letter this week is K, and this is another letter I didn't have much for.  I only own five polishes starting with the letter K, but I managed to use two of them in this mani.....

FingerFood's Theme Buffet - Neon

Hi guys!  I'm back again with my mani for this weeks theme buffet prompt.  I normally like to post these on the Sunday, but luckily you can post any day of the week for this challenge, so if you're behind, or it clashes with your schedule, it's not a problem.  :D  Anyway, this weeks prompt is neon, so you won't be surprised that this is the week I'm jumping back in.......

Tri Polish Tuesdays

 Hi guys!  Since today is the start of a brand new month, I figured this would be a great time to jump back in to the Tri Polish Tuesdays challenge, which is run through The Crumpet's Nail Tarts facebook group.  For anyone who's not familiar with this challenge, the rules are as follows:
Each month there are 3 chosen colours, and every Tuesday we post a mani using these colours, plus the allowed extras; black, white, gold, silver and glitter toppers. At least one mani within the month must contain all 3 colours, while the others must contain at least two of the chosen colours.
