Pick N Mix Week 2 -3 colour Gradient / Pink

Week 2 of the Pick N Mix challenge, and the prompts this week are 3 colour gradient and Pink. My nails aren’t really long enough for 3 colour gradients at the moment – I cut them right back when I went on holiday at the end of august and they’ve […]

Back to Blogging

Hi everyone! Its been a long time since I posted here, and life has been incredibly hectic. I have only advice for any younger readers out there – being an adult isn’t all its cracked up to be! Stupid jobs and houses and bills. I’ve pledged to make a little […]


Wit beyond measure is man’s greatest treasure

I’m a bit of a nerd, this is no secret. For years I actually refused to read Harry Potter, I can’t remember why. When I did get round to it, I have to be completely honest and say that I really could not stand 2/3rds of the main characters. But […]


Here be Dragons…

Having this weekend off polish making has actually given me time to paint my nails, and thus there will actually be some posts in the next week or so! These nails were actually what I wore to work last week – quickly thrown together on sunday night before bed, with […]


2013 & 2014

Hey everyone, sorry for yet another bout of silence on the blog lately but I’ve been up to my eyeballs in a new (and possibly slightly crazy) project. I present to you all – R&R Lacquers… Rachael of Racho’s Nail Love and I have decided to try and start our own […]


Nub Club – Tree in the Snow 1

I’m trying to pack the nub nail art in before Christmas, and this was something I was intending to do on my larger nails before my de-clawing. Little Christmas tree! This was a super easy tape mani, with the base done in Revlon Powder Puff. Powder Puff is an amazing […]


Nub Club – Christmas Reindeer

A few weeks ago I bought some gorgeous little deer charms from She Sells Seashells, but there was one little problem – my talons were (at the time) too big for them! I was devastated. The poor things would have just looked completely lost on my nails. So the nail […]


Welcome to the Nub Club 3

So, in this last week, the day before Mr Painted Claws’s Christmas party to be precise, I was forced to join the dreaded Nub Club. Stupid car door snapping my nails. Please ignore the slightly blue tinted nail beds – its a bit chilly in here and I have totally […]


Armed and Ready … to stamp! 2

I’ve been pretty good in December – I put myself on a no buy last pay day (22nd Nov) and I can honestly say I’ve not bought anything. Mr Painted Claws, on the other hand, saw me looking longingly at the Essie that is the base colour for this mani […]
