Sophie’s Roses

Posted on: May 30th, 2014 by shewhodoesnails  1 Comment

Last weekend I had the wonderful pleasure of having one of my best friends, Sophie to stay with me!

We had a lovely time out for dinner and drinks on the Friday night, and on the Saturday morning she asked me to paint her nails

You can’t do wrong with a simple floral design!

Sophie has such lovely long nails that they are so easy to paint, and she’s already got her hand poses down!

Springtime Again!

Posted on: May 28th, 2014 by shewhodoesnails  1 Comment

As the weather has been so wonderful and spring-like again, I just had to do something cute and floral, I mean, who doesn’t love a floral mani?

All you need for this mani is a polish for the background colour, two polishes in different shades of the same colour, a green polish for the leaves, and a tiny paintbrush for the detail work!

Springtime Again!

Review: Revlon Parfumerie Wild Violets

Posted on: May 23rd, 2014 by shewhodoesnails  3 Comments

If you’ve been shopping recently, you might have noticed a new section in the Revlon nail polish stand.

Naturally I am drawn to any new displays, but these snazzy bottle lids and the word ‘Parfumerie’ over the top really got me excited.

Parfumerie polishes are Revlon’s new range of perfumed polishes…yes you read right, perfumed polishes.

I bought four of these polishes, and today I am reviewing Revlon Parfumerie Wild Violets.

Mouse Trap!

I am so excited to show you this manicure… I painted this a few nights ago and love how cute and random it is!

It’s also a little ironic, as I really really hate cheese. I do, however, love mice and rats, as I had nine pet rats a few years back!

Look at these spots! Haha.

Now, I know quite clearly they look just like random spots. This was not my original intention.

A couple of week ago I had a bit of a shopping spree in Primark and found the cutest, peach, patterned strappy top ever, and that was what gave me the inspiration for this mani. Click Read More to see the top with the mani!

Oh my goodness. I cannot believe that it has been four whole months since I last painted my nails for you all. That really is disgraceful!

First off, a big apology for vanishing off the face of the earth after Christmas. I very naughtily started biting my nails again, then managed to slice off a bit of the end of my finger, so have been waiting for the time to be right to come back to you all.

So of course, I had to come back on a good one. I give you…… Tinkerbell!!
