Finally, I am the proud owner of a MAC - Morange lipstick! I've been lusting after this bright orange shade for about a year, and when I found out that MAC had released a special edition as part of the Wash & Dry collection, I decided it was time to take the plunge.

If you've been into Superdrug recently, or even had a browse on their website, you might have noticed a new brand has arrived called Lottie London. Their range of nail polish, nail tools and make up brushes has really caught my attention, mainly because the packaging and branding is really cute - 'Selfie Ready Beauty' - I'm probably too old for that but I was sucked in anyway!

When Models Own announced they were adding 5 new shades to the Polish for Tans collection I was more than a little excited. The original Polish for Tans range that was released last summer was my favourite collection of 2014 and I'm still a huge fan of neon colours so this new launch looked perfect for me.

Another bit of stripy nail art today - what can I say? At least I'm consistent! This particular design was heavily inspired by one of my most favourite nail artists on Instagram, Jessie K, aka @nailsofjessiek.

It's been a very exciting week for me; starting my first 'proper' job, my first mani swap, and now my first indie polish swatches! This fun little collection is from Danglefoot Nail Polish and they're all handmade by Hayley at her home in Norfolk.

If you've been into Boots or Superdrug recently, you may have noticed that Rimmel have not only added some new Spring/Summer collections but they've also completely revamped their whole nail polish line!

Last week I participated in a competition hosted by Leighton Denny on Instagram and was fortunate enough to win the complete Welcome to the Funfair collection: six brand new, vibrant polishes for Spring/Summer 2015.

A bit more nail art today, feel like I'm on a roll at the moment. With the start of a new season and lots of new products being released comes added nail inspiration, which is great for me as I try to distract myself from spending too much money!

This month Marie Claire are offering a free Nails Inc nail polish with their magazine. There are four different creme colours to choose from, I went for this lovely lilac called 'Fashion'.

Today is a relatively exciting day for me because my broken nail has finally grown back! Cue the fireworks! Not exactly life-changing but I thought I'd celebrate the occasion with a bit of rainbow glitter.

Some more stripy nail art today. Stripes are so simple to create with a bit of tape but I think they give a great effect. I've been wearing this mani for a few days now and I really love it, plus it involves my favourite polish brand, Color Club.

As a lover of bold colours and stripes, nautical themed nail art seems an obvious choice for me. I'm quite surprised I haven't tried it before now. And since I've recently acquired a few red nail polishes, here was a good chance to try them out.

I knew when I first tried the Colour Chrome polishes that I wanted to use them together for nail art. Since 'negative space' seems to be having a bit of a moment right now, I thought it would be a good opportunity to combine the two trends for a modern and grown up manicure.

It seems impossible to get away from 50 Shades of Grey mania at the moment. I'm not exactly a fan, I'm just too much of a prude! However it did give me a great idea for a little blog post, so here's my favourite grey nail polishes.

Happy Friday 13th everyone, hopefully nothing unlucky has happened! Just a quick post today to show you this pretty pink gradient manicure, quite seasonally appropriate as it's Valentine's Day tomorrow...

Long story short - I've found some amazing holographic polishes. In a real shop. In London. Oh and they cost £3.75 each. I kid you not! Click for a holo picture frenzy...

January isn't typically known as a good month for shopping, and after such a lovely Christmas with so many beautiful gifts I haven't felt the need to either. However if there's one thing that needs constant care and maintenance it's my hair...
