Changes on Pinkglow's Pretty Polish

I have been taking some time to think about my blog and how it works for me.  I have always said that it's something that I do for fun and I want to make sure that it stays that way.  Recently I have begun to get fairly busy and have been feeling that my blog has been a bit more of a chore at times. 

To combat this I have decided that for the time being I will still be posting, but just not as often.  My blog posts will move to a monthly round up of my nails and the designs that I have been doing.  You will still be able to keep up to date with me week by week over on Instagram as I will continue to share all the pictures there, just be sure to stop by at the end of the month to find out a bit more about each design on my blog.

The exception to this will be if I am asked to do a review, in which case I will be doing an individual post for that.

I look forward to continuing with my nails but not pressuring myself week on week.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you back again at the end of next month

Lady Queen Water Decal Review*

As I'd done something quite simple with my nails last week I fancied doing something fun and colourful, and luckily as I was coming up with some ideas I got some exciting nail mail.  I was contacted by Lady a little while back and they asked if I'd like to review some of their nail goodies.  I chose some rainbow geometric patterned water decals and some gold bow nail gems.

Short and Simple

July has been very busy so far, and it's not slowing down yet.  I found out at work that I had to move offices so I didn't want to spend too much time doing anything fancy with my nails in case they got chipped.  I also thought it would be best to file them down a bit, to avoid breaks.

I really liked the pink ombré that I did a few weeks back, so thought I'd go for the same style again but with purples.


I used the following colours, from thumb to little finger, Models Own Pitch Purple, W7 Liberty, Models Own Pear Purple, Revlon Colorstay Winning Streak, and Essie Full Steam Ahead.

Whilst I was doing my nails my mum was visiting.  She asked me to file her nails down and sort out where she had some splits and damage.  I filed them quite short so they all matched.  She then painted them with Morgan Taylor Sugar Fix so that they were still protected by some polish to avoid breaks, but so that the colour wasn't too dark.  For a bit of fun I added a pretty flower with gems from the Born Pretty Store as an accent nail.


Only a short little post this week, but I thought you might be interested to see mine and my mum's short and simple nails.  What do you do if your nails need a bit of TLC or protection?

Thanks for stopping by

Coloristiq July Manicure Box - Summer Getaway - Swatches, Review, and Nail Art Tutorial*

The lovely ladies at Coloristiq contacted me a little while back and asked if I'd like to put together a tutorial for their July Summer Getaway Manicure Box.  It took me all of a few seconds to say yes.

I got the lovely gold box through the post filled with gorgeous polishes worth almost a whopping £50 and started planning my design to fit the theme.

Nail Swap with The Naily Mail - Featuring a review of Just My Look*

A while ago Lauren, from The Naily Mail, and I were contacted by Just My Look about reviewing some of the lovely nail polishes that they have available on their website; but these were to be reviews with a bit of a twist... We would be picking the colours for each other.  Needless to say we took up the offer, so today I have OPI Tocan Do It If You Try*, OPI That's Hula-rious!*, Morgan Taylor No Way Rosé*, and Morgan Taylor Sugar Fix* to show you.

Lauren and I have also done a nail swap using our new colours.  Here's clue about which design I chose - any guesses?  Read on to see the swatches and finished design.
