40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Film | My Neighbour Totoro

Hi lovelies!

I almost forgot this week's 40 Great Nail Art Ideas post was meant to go up yesterday! Luckily I already had a pretty solid plan that I've been waiting to execute thanks to the aiyoohehe Miyazaki stamping plate collection, or more specifically, Hehe #065* inspired by the impossibly adorable My Neighbour Totoro.

Yes, I probably should have done it and not just thought about it sometime in the last month, but eh, I got there eventually.

Paint All The Nails presents: Pantone Colour of the Year 2016

Hi lovelies!

It's that time of the month again (not, not that time) - it's Paint All The Nails linkup day! Woooo!

This month the vote was pretty much unanimous - Pantone Colour(s) of the Year for 2016. This year Pantone chose two colours of the year - the soft pink Rose Quartz, "a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure", and Serenity, which Pantone describes as "weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times". Chyeahhh, OK Pantone.

Powder Perfect - Insomnia trio

Hi lovelies!

You better get some tissues because you are gonna be drooling by the end of this post! Powder Perfect are beginning the year in amazing fashion with this stunning trio inspired by creator Jacinta's sleepless nights while pregnant with her newborn baby girl.

Happy Hottest 100 Day!

Hi lovelies!

Mega quickie nail art for you - it's Australia Day today, aka Hottest 100 day! I've done some nails for the day inspired by my favourite song of last year - Tame Impala's Let it Happen!

New brand review - Tatty Mule Nail Paints

Hi lovelies!

It's Friday! Not sure if it was just me but this week was a real clogged toilet. To say I'm happy it's the weekend in a matter of hours is a bit of an understatement. Regardless of stinky week of stinkdom, I thought I'd farewell it in a positive way by showing off some new polish I recently purchased from newish Aussie brand Tatty Mule Nail Paints.

Admittedly I've been very slack trying new brands lately, it's impossible for just one person to keep up these days! I promised myself to shop somewhere new in the Boxing Day sales and Tatty Mule got my attention with these two cute crellies.

Hehe #084 Stamping Plate Review - Plaids & Florals Collection

Hello lovelies!

I'm very excited to be bringing you the first of several stamping plate reviews for a new-to-me brand, aiyoohehe (hēhē for short)! I'd been eyeing off a few of their plates - especially the Harry Potter and Miyazaki collections - when I was put in touch with the lovely Siqi and Haiyan, the team behind aiyoohehe, and offered several plates of my choice to review. 

Today I'll be showing you some simple looks with one of the plates from their latest release, the Plaids & Florals collection. Here's what I was working with:

40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Things That Fly

Hi lovelies!

I meant to post this much earlier but I ended up having a mid-morning nap before heading off to an afternoon raging at my nephew's first birthday party. Yep, I'm a real wild child sometimes.

It feels like forever since I did a 40 Great Nail Art Ideas linkup - probs because I haven't done one since last year. RIGHT?! *crickets*

Themed Thursday - Penguin

Hi lovelies!

I've put on my freehand boots and whipped out the acrylic paint to do some winter nail art for Themed Thursday, an Instagram challenge hosted by @wondrouslypolished and @kellimarissa. Today our prompt was penguins and my nail art was inspired by this print of Gunter from Adventure Time, because any excuse to do Adventure Time nail art, right?

You Can't Have This - Glam Polish Wild at Heart duo

You guys, I have a problem. It's 2016 and I still have polish I purchased in 2014 sitting in my untried drawer. I know, some of you probably have much older untrieds, but my drawer once again runneth over and I don't buy all this polish to have it sit unloved!

So I'm making every effort to dig out all the really awesome stuff - the limited editions, the custom/sample polishes, the subscription box and collaboration shades that I just HAD TO HAVE RIGHT NOW because otherwise it would be gone forever - and swatching them once and for all.

Then I'm gonna blog about them. #sorrynotsorry pals, welcome to my new intermittent series -You Can't Have This.

Themed Thursday - Snowflakes

Hi lovelies!

I've joined a nail art challenge on Instagram this month hosted by nail art geniuses Lindsey of Wondrously Polished and Kelli aka @kellimarissa and today is the first of a month of winter themed prompts - Snowflakes! 

Stamped Nail art and Bella Belle Swatches

Hi lovelies!

I'm indulging in my love of green and purple today with swatches of two gorgeous polishes I recently purchased from Bella Belle Nail Couture. Also - bonus nail art! 

Swatched: Furless Cosmetics 'Trashy'

Hi lovelies!

Super quick swatch for you today of a totally gorgeous polish from Furless Cosmetics, a new-to-me brand - or at least, previously untried brand. I've been aware of them for some time as a top quality Australian supplier of 100% cruelty free beauty products but this polish, kindly gifted to me by my friend Alinta of Polish & Paws, is my first experience. And you guys, I am Impressed.

Best of 2015 - My Favourite Nail Art

Happy New Year!!

To say goodbye to 2015 I'm looking back at the 15 best nail art looks I did over the last 12 months (and also vegetating on the couch binge watching Jessica Jones, hand me my hungover multi-tasking award pls). I guess it's more favourite than best, but much of a muchness I guess. Let's get into it!
