World Cup Nails (¡Viva Mexíco!)

So this is where I pretend I know about the World Cup and am really excited about it...well, I know it's happening and I used to be really into football but not so much any more but since Bank Fashion are running a competition on Instagram with Barry M for the best World Cup nail art, I thought I may as well try my hand at some.

My ASOS Sale Picks

My heart skips a beat any time I see the word SALE but when there's an ASOS sale?  Well, let's just say I get VERY excited!  I've picked a few of my favourite clothing and beauty picks from the sale to show you guys and believe me, the nailspiration in these items is off the charts :D

Click on the pictures to go onto the ASOS website to see prices and sizes available :-)


I love these Swedish Hasbeen style wooden sandals that are perfect for summer (if it decides to come back in these parts). A boxy shirt is kind of one of my go-to shapes for when I'm wearing a skinny bottom so I can't resist this lip print shirt and of course, what ASOS sale haul would be complete without a headscarf!

My Summer Sunglasses Guide

There is something I can openly admit about myself, I LOVE sunglasses.  I have far too many pairs for a person who burns in the sun within 10 minutes and who lives in a country where the number of days of pure sunlight can probably be counted on both hands.  I thought I might show you guys the variety of sunglasses you can have in your arsenal and give a little insight into my personal taste and style outside of my digits :-)

The Night's Watch Nail Art (+ GoT Exhibit)

Woah nelly noo, this series of Game of Thrones has been a rollercoaster has it not?  Episode 9 was as legendary as the previous three efforts from HBO and so I was inspired to show my love for the episode at The Wall by trying my hand at some Night's Watch inspired nail art.

Orange is the New Black Nails with Flossgloss Neon Nacho and Faded

Sorry for the radio silence this past week or so, part (or most of the reason) is that my spare time has been ate up by rewatching OITNB and then marathoning the new episodes on Friday (7 in one day and since I've been working, just one a day after that) so I knew if I finally detached myself from Netflix to do my nails, they had to be Orange is the New Black related!

Some Dashing Dachshunds

Just a quick post today.  Sadly, my deputy Manager in work, Mark, is leaving us this week and for his leaving do, he requested some Dachshund nail art from yours truly since he has two gorgeous little dogs and this is what I came up with!

Essie The More, The Merrier and Color Club Rebel Spirit (I think)

I couldn't find an angle where I could show off the cuteness of the dog and all of the paw prints together since the little puppy goes across the entire curve of my nail but I used my small detail brush and smaller dotting tool from the Models Own Nail Art Tool Kit to create the silhouette of the dog and the paw prints subsequently.

Mark really liked the nail art and I'm really glad he did!  Have you taken any requests for nail art before?  Let me know in the comments below and be sure to follow me by the following sites, until next time :-)
