For me this is a brilliant example of a mani I absolutely could have done freehand / with stamping. It would have taken me about an hour I think.

Helloooooo. This is actually my first Sally Hansen post and the first time I have worn her. Being a bit of a snob, I've always looked down on cheaper brands ...

Tragic photography on this one. It was a very gloomy week in the UK, so I had to use my phone to grab this one. Love the funky vibe with this one ...

The base of this mani is a semi-opaque white holo called Starlight, with brushstrokes of 4 other polishes on top.

Don't forget to check out the other DD ladies.

Wow, a bit of a fail here. I think this was the first full mani I tried, and as you can see, my application is not awesome. Also, the highly reflective ...

I still don't like white nail polish on me, but I do love how fresh and summery this design is.

Brush strokes is NOT the same as distressed nails. With the latter, you have to wipe your brush, but with brush strokes, you're just swiping.

I was worried the mix of dark polishes and gloss top coat might not do the mani justice, so I decided to matte it and try Starlight on TOP.

... a holographich topper, and I really like how a few swipes of it here really dialled down the melodrama of some of the colours, and evened the pattern ...

For my first mani, I started slow, and did 2 accent nails. Jamberry is great for that. It's such an easy way to spice up a normal mani, and with so little ...

I'm in Stamping Hell at the moment. I STILL haven't played with all my new plates and then, to top it all, my Cheeky 2012 set arrived this week, ...

Delphinium is a lighter than air lilac, a low-cal confection of warmed hot air. Super soft, super light and super subtle, this also has a beautiful purity.

TT by the way is one of the prettiest glitters I own – a beautiful swirl of silver and blue glitter of medium and micro sizes.

Step forward Peacock Feathers by Nubar. Unlike others in the collection it sprang from, this baby got discontinued quickly due to one of the pigments no ...

This mani totally reminds my of my DD colleaugue Lindsey, except usually, she'd do this sort of thing freehand. In her sleep.

In this mani, it's less stark than a white base, but also, the creaminess lends the mani a heavier, more vintage feel.

Eventually I settled on a paleish blue and a dark pink - Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream which is *almost* opaque in 1 coat, and CG Its Poppin, ...

The stamp is from Cheeky CH50, and I love how it looks in the black. Also, although this looks matte, I didn't matte it - this is how it looked after ...

I was lucky to get my hands on this during a swap. Someone had it and had never worn it, so I traded it for something else I owned.

I had always been a bit snobby about Jamberry, and VERY anti nail wraps and decals, mainly due to my huge suckage at applying them, but I have to say, ...

We're Gonna Need A Bigger Boat (WGNABB) is a gorgeous blue jelly with microscopic-to tiny-to small copper glitter and it's crazy gorgeous.

... and restaurants have special events on, and Beth's school had a Jubilee party yesterday too (they all dressed in red, white and blue, twas very cute).

Firstly, even before we get to the polish, can we just take a moment to applaud the bottle. This feels like splendour. Solid, chunky, round AND square, ...

This took 3 coats for opacity, and was somewhat jellyish, but I think I would prefer to do this again than layer it. Why? Because the blue is so amazing and ...

In the bottle, this is quite a medium-dark blue, and it does dry a little lighter on the nail. It's like a jade-tinged turquoise with a dash of royal blue ...

The copper glitter provides the perfect accent - it's just sublime. It's quite fitting that a polish named after a famous line from Jaws should be so ...
