OPI Gel Color Alpine Snow Swatch

Picking a nail colour that had to last me through moving house, overseas travel and a week of business events was one of the toughest decisions I’ve made all year. I always get a gel-polish or gel manicure before I travel or do anything labour intensive because it keeps my nails protected, but the addition of attending lots of business meetings meant I had to carefully consider the colour choice.

The answer: White.  Continue Reading

Glam Manicare Express Nail Art Pens Pink Silver

I have been really getting into the nail art craze lately but the problem is I am so beginner that I just can’t do the complicated stuff. I look at the amazing things people create and I wish I had just a fraction of their talent. Unfortunately I don’t, but that isn’t going to stop me from trying.

Today I am going to share my tutorial on how I remove my Bio Sculpture gel nails at home, and I will be doing it to the awesome Missoni inspired gel NOTD. This technique can be applied to any gel nails, shellac, gel-polish hybrids and to even remove glitter nail polish (life saver!!).  Continue Reading

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Purple Ombre Nails

The new and improved Complete Salon Manicure by Sally Hansen made my list of new launch favourites in February. Since then I have been playing around with the overwhelming 42 new shades and have my first ombre NOTD to show you. Of course I chose to go with my favourite colour, purple, but there were so many choices it was hard to pick. Being my first ombre manicure attempt (and I did it in a rush) I think it could have gone better so I am going to distract you from my crappy paint job with a comprehensive review of the new line.  Continue Reading
