LiL Challenge: Monochrome!

This post is so late, I'm sorry! But anyway... on Monday, Life in Lacquer's July Nail-Art Challenge prompt was "Monochrome" so I took to doing some black and grey tape-mani nails! It worked rather well, I think.

Oreo Rocky Roads!

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a nice weekend.

Today I have a Rocky Road recipe for you all- they're very yummy and it's my own recipe- yay!

Colour Me Crazy: Yellow!

This post really should've went up yesterday.... but I forgot to write it! So here goes, hope you're having a good weekend!

Today's I'm covering the next prompt on the British Nail Blogger's "Colour Me Crazy" challenge! This week it's Yellow!

LiL Challenge: Floral

Today's prompt for Life in Lacquer's July Nail Art Challenge is Floral!
My initial reaction to this was "urgh. Great, I hate flowers." but then I found some really pretty designs around the internet and my spirits were lifted a little! (I really am crazy-impressed by a lot of these mind, they're so detailed and delicate and pretty)

Wail: LiL Challenge: Blue!

Hey everyone!
I'm writing this post from my garden since it's all sunny and hot still! (Trying to get a tan!)

So today I bring you my blue nails for Life in Lacquer's July Nail Art Challenge!

Look after them!

How to... Look after your nails!

Here's how I take care of mine, usually on average twice a week, though it depends on your nail-type as to how often you should do this.
For weak or ridged nails: Try and do this around three to four times a week until your nails begin to re-strengthen.
For "normal" nails: Do this around two times a week, it'll keep them up to shape!
For strong nails: Even though your nails are strong, you should still keep them in good shape, so do this one to two times a week.

A Blogger's Bookshelf: The Winner's Curse

Hey everyone!
Happy Monday :)
So today's book, you may not have heard of (I know I hadn't!) but it's called "The Winner's Curse" by Marie Rutkoski, and is the first book of a trilogy, known as "The Winner's Trilogy" (though the other 2 books are yet to be released).

Fridail: Orange Shapey Nails!

Hey everyone! :)
Today I'm killing two birds with one stone and combining the two challenges I'm taking part in. (Dangerous, right?)
So that means for the British Nail Blogger's "Colour Me Crazy" challenge, my nails must be Orange!

Wail: LiL Challenge- Dots!

Hey everyone! Today I'm bringing you the most recent prompt from Life in Lacquer's Challenge- dots! I used a design that I found here at 'Did My Nails'
I went with lots of blue, green and silver polishes because they're awesome! Such pretty colours!
So, without anymore talky stuff, here's a long line of pics!

Baking Day!

Hey everyone!
There's no Blogger's Bookshelf post today, cause I've been reading the Harry Potter's recently and you've already had a post on those! I've taken a quick one-book break though, so you will have a book post next week :)

So to make up for all of that, I brought you a quick little "what I did today" kind of post!
Well... today- I baked! My Mam set me the challenge of making a cupcake-shoe, which is pretty much a cupcake joined to a stick-like object to make it look like a heeled shoe.

So it's mixture time! Woop woop!

Fridail: Colour Me Crazy: Red!

Happy Friday everyone :)
From now on, for the next 12 weeks, Fridail posts will be used for showcasing my British Nail Blogger Colour Challenge nails!

LiL Challenge: Tv/Film Inspired!

Today's prompt from Life in Lacquer is "Tv/Film Inspired!"

After bouncing a few ideas off Sarah, I settled on a Marvel theme... Which turned into a Thor-theme.... Which turned into Loki.
Ah, Loki, I love you.

Wail: Prom Nails!

Hey everyone! So it was my sixth-form prom the other Saturday (the 28th of June!) and we all know how much nails add to an outfit, so today I'm sharing mine!

LiL Challenge: Pink!

Hey everyone! Yesterday was the second round of Life in Lacquer's nail art challenge and the theme was pink!

So here is my mani!

A Blogger's Bookshelf: The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a good weekend.
Today I'm covering a book which has been rather hyped up for a while and in some places is even seen as a 'classic' that everyone should read. Behold- The Perks of Being a Wallflower, by Stephen Chbosky.

LiL Challenge: Food!

Hey everyone!
Yes, yes, it's Thursday- it's usually one of my days off, but shh, I brought a surprise for you all!
This month (July, already!?) I'm doing a Nail Art Challenge set up by Life in Lacquer!

If you want to join in too, there's still time, and you don't have to join in every single challenge day if you don't want to, but it would be awesome if you do.

Wail: Avon Sequinned Turquoise

Happy Wednesday everybody! I hope your week is going great, or if it isn't, then I hope that it gets better for you!
Maybe reading this post will just do the trick to keep/put you week in happy mode?
I bring with me a polish from Avon today- behold, the "Sequinned Turquoise" polish!
