Hi,

The new Summer 2015 collection by Polish Alcoholic is out today and I've got some swatches to share with you all! The six-piece collection features five bright colours with different glitter/shimmer effects and one iridescent glitter topper. I was sent two out of six shades - Hands Off My Pistachios and Fly High Up To The Sky. I've had great experiences with Polish Alcoholic's polishes so I was very excited to try these! Oh, and if you're thinking about placing an order you can use the code "10OFF" for a 10% discount!

Squeaky Nails Has Had A Makeover!


Hi,

Squeaky Nails has had a bit of a makeover! I'd been thinking about changing things for a while now and those changes went live earlier today. 


The overall look is cleaner and simpler, the navigation bar at the top of every page has a few new categories for easier browsing and blog posts now feature related posts at the end, to help you find similar content!


Mint Illusion


Hi,

I've got another floral nail art look to share with you today. I can't help it, I just want to use my Bundle Monster Secret Garden collection plates all the time! The buffet style of plate means you get to pick and choose the image you want to use and how to combine it. I like how using one plate creates a cohesive look without having to use the exact same image on every nail. I really want to try more buffet style stamping plates and I can't wait to see the full Polynesia collection Bundle Monster has been teasing us with on their social media!

I used: Catrice - Mint Me Up / Catrice - Denim Moore / PolisHaus - Illusion* / Bundle Monster BM-720 stamping plate* / Essence - Matt About You

Whisper of Spring


Hi,

Sooo, I finally tried one of Essence's new gel polishes! When I first saw the new range update a few weeks ago I wasn't all that impressed, it seemed like most of the colours had just been repackaged/renamed. I always prefer seeing new colours but my curiosity got the best of my so I finally picked up one of the Gel Nail Polish bottles (yes, just one!) to try out. I chose Whisper of Spring, a soft lilac creme with a hint of silver shimmer. The colour reminds me of Essence's Colour and Go Hello Marshmallow! but the formula is a lot  better. Anyway, I paired it with another new-ish Essence polish from the I <3 Trends line, Hope for Love and some dainty floral stamping.

I used: Essence - Whisper of Spring / Essence - Hope for Love / Bundle Monster BM-710 stamping plate* / Essence - Stamp Me! polish in White

Stamped Pistachio


Hi,

Today's post is a bit of a sneak peek at one of the shades from the upcoming Summer collection by Polish Alcoholic! I will be sharing my swatches and review on the two shades I received somewhere around the launch date (May 15) but for today's look I used one of them as a base for some stamping. The stamping covers up most of the polish, so do make sure to check back later to get a better look at this beauty! 

I used: Polish Alcoholic - Hands Off My Pistachios* (from the upcoming Summer collection, for sale on May 15) / Essence - Stamp Me! polish in black / Born Pretty Store BP-10 stamping plate / Essence - Matt About You

Woodland Plush


Hi,

I was browsing around for nail art inspiration a few days ago when I spotted one of Clairey Lou Creations' photos on Instagram. I've been following them on Etsy for a while and I thought their adorable fox pillows could be translated to nail art perfectly! 

I used: Black Dahlia Lacquer - African Violets* / Catrice - ASHley / Happy Hands - Motherboy / Chloe & Bella - Black Out* / Essence - Stamp Me! polish in White / Essence - Ultimate Pink / Essence - Matt About You
