Mouse Trap!

Posted on: May 21st, 2014 by shewhodoesnails  4 Comments

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!

I am so glad that so many of you enjoyed my penguin nails yesterday, so I thought I would give you all an early Christmas present and share a tutorial for it!

How cute are these little guys?! It’s getting quite a bit colder now in the UK so I started thinking about colder things and voila!
When my mum saw these she said that they reminded her of the group of penguins in the film Madagascar and I might have to agree :)

Don’t even ask me where this idea came from. I literally have no clue, other that my weird mind managed to conjure it up whilst at work the other afternoon.

But wouldn’t you agree, this might be the best manicure I have ever done! I am so unbelievably proud of it!

If you don’t know who Mr Tickle is, he is a character from a series of children’s books called Mr Men and Little Miss :)

So I actually did this manicure months ago! I finally got around to editing the pictures this week, and still like it enough to share it with you :)

This is supposed to be a monarch butterfly style manicure! Isn’t it pretty?


Review: Pocket Money Polishes – I Put A Spell On You

Posted on: June 16th, 2013 by shewhodoesnails  3 Comments

You might remember the review I did the other day about Pocket Money Polishes‘ Starry, Starry Night by Charlie. She’s just started producing her own nail polishes collections, the first one being called Glitter Babies and is out right now.

Today I have for you another bottle from the collection called I Put A Spell On You. All of Charlie’s polishes are named after songs which is such a novel idea!

I Put A Spell On You is described as ‘Green stars, purple hearts with orange matte squares and a shifting rainbow’, and it looks like the coolest, most haunting polish ever! it has Halloween written all over it.

The application was very even for the orange glitter bits and the holo flecks, but again the stars required a bit of  fishing which I actually quite like as you get to put them exactly where you want them!

This is definitely my favourite polish in the collection as I have never seen anything like it! It looks so cool. In the photos I have layered it over LA Colors Fun In The Sun which is an amazing shade of purple in itself, and it compliments the colours of the glitter so so well.

You can buy I Put A Spell On You from Charlie’s online shop HERE for only £4 for a 5ml bottle. But if you put the code ‘Laura10′ in the comment box on your order, you can receive an extra 10% off your order! They’re limited edition, so grab one while they’re still available!
