Squiggle Vinyl Gradient Nail Art!

It's Sunday and I have been slacking off again! But I am back again after an exciting week of new tattoos and new hair do's, and I bring you yet more nail art using my new love: Vinyls.

Today's post includes the squiggle vinyls, which are fun to say as well as use ;-)

I used The Body Shop Polishes to create these nails. 640 Mint Cream is the base colour and I then added the vinyls and sponged 220 Peach Babe over the top to make the gradient.

I'm happy with the way this mani turned out. It is one of those rare occasion where the nails come out better than you invision!! Though I'm not actually sure what my aim was in the first place!

I think they kind of look like a flowing river too which I like :-)

You can purchase the Squiggle vinyls, among many others from And The Body Shop Colour Crush Nail Colours are £5 each available at

Thank you for reading and have a great rest of the day, wherever you are.

Blue Rhythm de Chanel

Sunday again, already! I hope you're all having a great weekend whatever it is you're doing :)

Today, I bring you swatches of the new offering from Chanel. Two beautiful blue polishes from this Summer collection, aptly named, Blue Rhythm de Chanel.

The collection includes a bright royal blue creme named Vibrato (permanent), and a darker more navy polish which has a slight metallic finish with a lovely subtle sparkle named Fortissimo (LE). Love the musical terms they've used for the names :-)

I did tinker with the swatch photos a tad, just because they came out much lighter than irl. I just darkened them slightly to make them more true to life.

Both polishes are swatched using two coats of polish with a top coat.

First up is #665 Vibrato, this one is the permanent shade - 

And #681 Fortissimo, the limited edition colour - 

I have to say, I have seen very limited information regarding this collection. But I can tell you that it launched last Friday (May 29th) and Fortissimo is a limited edition colour, however Vibrato will be an ongoing colour. 

Chanel have been impressing me lately. We all saw how beautiful Collection Mediterranee was, and how much fun too. I think that is why Chanel is one of, if not my all time favourite, brands. They do classic so well (Rouge Noir for a start!) but then they offer shades like these two and you're reminded that they can be exciting and fresh. 

Chanel Le Vernis are £18 each and I purchased mine from, and don't forget to pick up Fortissimo while you can :)

Have a wonderful day everyone, and thank you for reading!

Barry M Pink Criss-Cross Nail Art

Well it's June and it's raining! Good old English summers!

Today I have a fun pink mani which will brighten up the nails, even if the sun is hiding :( Shockingly, I am using vinyls again. To create this design I used the Pointed Chevron's along with all Barry M nail paints.

I started off with #66 White as my base and added a coat of SV.

Once this was dry, I stuck on two vinyls pointing towards each other to create the cross shape.

I then filled in in the traingles with #119 Baby Pink; #309 Strawberry Ice Cream; #279 Bright Pink and #272 Shocking Pink (in order of lightest to darkest)

I'm pretty sure that #119 Baby Pink is the only one that is no longer available. You can purchase the rest at for £2.99 each, and the vinyls are £1.25 from

Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoyed today's mani!

Have a wonderful rest of the week :)
