How're you all doing today? I hope you had an awesome weekend?

As you guys know I've been away for this past weekend and it was awesome, although I'm still not back yet so I'll give you more details and possibly pictures in my next post. (sound good?)

For today though I am rolling out the first of my Halloween nail art designs. I've three to show you in total but I'm saving the best until last! This ones pretty simple but I wanted to create something cute. Here's my Pumpkin Weenie!

I hope you are all doing awesome day. I'm looking forward to a fun filled weekend - I'll explain in an upcoming post and hopefully I'll be able to include some pictures. So while I'm posting I just wont be around to come blog visit for a couple of days. Tomorrow is also my parents 40th anniversary, so happy anniversary you guys!

Today I will be reviewing four gel polishes from the Born Pretty Store. I was supposed to review five however one turned out to be a duplicate (It's ok, I really like that one, hehe!) These are 'One Step Colourful Soak Off UV Gel Polish' in 6014, 6032, 6022, 6059 (x2)


Freehand Full Acorn Nail Art

Allo polish Pals!

How are you all doing today? I hope your week is going well - anything fun going on?

This week I am busy getting all my posts 'polished' up for over the weekend as I'll be taking a little trip to the bottom of the Uk, I think that'll be the most south I've ever been. Its just a little trip from Friday to Monday but I am looking forward to a change of scenery. Of course I'll still be posting while I am away anyway.

Today's nail art is a little...nuts. I created this before I made my nails more pointy which is a shame but hey, I still like the idea even if I do see what I could have improved it. This isn't a design I'd actually really like to wear but I wanted to create something unusual.


Happy 5th Year Blogiversary GIVEAWAY!

Allo polish Pals!

Thank you for joining me on such an important post! I can hardly believe today marks 5 whole years of blogging for me. That's half a freakin' decade!

Ok, technically is six years old but today marks my first ever post. It took me an entire year of pondering if I could really blog. I had build it up in my head as a huge and mighty task and I was afraid of failing – not sure why now.

But starting my blog was one of the best personal decisions I've ever made. My blog has been there in times where I've wanted to give up, given me structure and routine while I've not been working. 
Its taught me discipline and taught me how to schedule and plan. My organisation skills..well, I didn't have any before.
I've met so many wonderful ladies and had some really fun opportunities. My blog has grown and I have with it, so many things have happened in the past five years, people coming, people going..but my blog has been constant.

I want to thank you all so much to those who follow me and my nail art journey and those who lurk quietly and keep coming back to see what I've created next. You are all a big part of what makes blogging so much fun for me, thank you!

I decided not to do any blogiversary nail art this year. Instead I thought I'd include just one piece from each year. With 822 published posts this was not an easy task at all!!  I'm going to end with the most meaningful and deep nail art I've ever created. I'd see that nail art broke the boundries for me, it showed me that not only could I paint something 'pretty' but it could have a real depth to it.

2012 - riiiight back to the beginning!
2013 - Attempting freehand designs.
2014 - Getting braver!
2015 - My first 'big' nail art design. I was so pleased with this at the time. My nails were too long!

2016 - Loving acrylic paints and creating full nail scenes and landscapes.
2017 - The most meaningful nail art I have to date. This one came at a time of loss and hope.
This final nail art was inspired by my self growth, over coming personal difficulties, letting go of things and accepting others into my life, ending a long term relationship and ultimately moving back home to England. People often see this nail art as sad, I guess because she's on the edge of the cliff and the balloon has gotten away from me but its completely the opposite. It was a hard time in my life and you were all so lovely to me.

So as a little thank you for all the support over the years I'm hosting a giveaway!

Freehand Fish & Chips - Food Nail Art

Allo polish Pals!

How are you all doing today? I hope you had an awesome week and have something fun lined up for this weekend?

You may or may not know that in England one of our classic takeaway indulgence's is fish and chips! I have many memories of having fish and chips on sea-side days out. These days I don't eat things like that very often, or take away food generally but every once in a while it is nice to have a treat.

This nail art was inspired by the last time I had fish and chips, it was cold and drizzling when me, my mother, sister and niece went to watch the town's annual carnival - Some of you joined me on my live Instagram! My mum didn't feel like cooking after standing around for so long we decided to have a cheeky chippy dinner!

Of course 'battered' fish wouldn't look that great for nail art so I had to 'cute it up' a little.

Just so you know there wont be any new nail art in my next post.. but it is my 5th blogiversary! So I will have something else fun lined up for you all!
