I created a holographic marble nail art look today. I’ve seen some amazing dry marble looks on Sveta Sanders‘ instagram lately. I have tried to re-create the designs several times but mostly failed.

Vintage nail polish is nail polish that is no longer being made and is often hard to find. Some vintage nail polishes are very unique looking and therefore highly desired.

Essence gel nail polish is in the centre of today’s blog post. I got these three gel-look polishes from Wilko website for a ‘whopping’ £0.50 each! Bargain or what!?! First off, they are called the ‘GEL nail polish’ but they are just normal nail polishes and not the gel polishes you need to cure in a […]
