Welcome back peeps, TGIF, this week has dragged so much. I'm not completely sure why but time has been going at a snail's pace this week. The weather here in the UK has no clue what it is doing, one day it's sunny and hot next it's snowing, really wish it would make its mind up. So for today's post, we have another addition to the Crumpet's Nail Tarts 26 Great Nail Art Idea's challenge. This time the prompt was Work Appropriate Nail Art so let's take a look.

Monday again, this weekend went so fast considering I had nothing to do when it started. I caught up with my best friend yesterday which was lovely, went for some lunch and the minute we sat down Lexi was ordering a cake (so much like her mum LOL). Today I have a really beautiful Spring collection from UK indie Pretty Perfect Polish to show you inspired by the fabulous Alice In Wonderland.
This gorgeous collection consists of 3 crellies and one matte finish polish, as you all know crellies are my kryptonite so I picked up this collection the minute it was released. Unfortunately, I am a lot like the White Rabbit and 'I'm late' getting this up on the blog but I still wanted to share these beauties with you.
Curiouser & Curiouser
The first polish is surprisingly my favourite out of the four, I know I was shocked too. This beautiful bright sky blue matte polish with blue micro glitter was just so amazing. It took 2 coats to be fully opaque, it did dry fast but no too fast that it was hard to work with. This colour is just so perfect for Spring and Summer, it also represents Alice to a tea. I had no issues with streaking or staining and it looks beautiful with a glossy top coat too.
I'm Not All There Myself
Next up is I'm not all there myself, I can definitely relate to that name, this has a pastel pink base with a blue shimmer and pink, orange, gold UCC flakies. This is a really beautiful unique polish much like the Cheshire Cat. It took 2 coats to be fully opaque and dried to a matte finish, I did add a glossy top coat which really bought those flakies to life. A third coat may have deepened that pink base slightly, but I did two thick and it was opaque.
Off With Their Heads
I probably don't have to tell you who inspired the next polish, this one is for The Queen Of Hearts. This has a white crelly base packed full of red holographic glitter and black micro glitters. This was another 2 coater, I think if you had a white base underneath this one those glitters would pop even more. This dries down matte too but I did add a glossy top coat, the formula was easy to apply and dried fast.
Much More Muchier is a phrase I definitely need to use more often, not going to lie but when I was wearing this one all I wanted was mint ice cream. This has a mint green pastel base with green, lime, blue UCC flakies and some green holographic micro glitter. This was definitely a fabulous polish for Spring, this also needed 2 coats for full opacity and was really lovely to apply.
Overall I fell in love with this collection, each crelly worked so well for the Character and for Spring. The matte polish was just stunning, such a gorgeous blue I kept it on for 4 days and didn't have any chips. Also supplied with the collection were the Pretty Perfect Polish Matte and Glossy top coat. All of my crelly swatches have used the Glossy top coat (To Top It Off) and I used the Matte top coat (Mad Matt-er) in some nail art that will be posted on my Instagram. It worked fantastically dried really quick and no issues with streaking or smudging.
Pretty Perfect Polish is a UK indie run by the lovely Maegan, she has some really beautiful unique polishes all of her polishes are 5 free and cruelty-free. At this time I believe she is only able to post in the UK but is look into having her polishes available in the US. The full collection with the Matte and Glossy top coat cost me £22, but they are available singularly a 10ml (£4.50) or 5ml (£3). I will leave links to the store and their social media down below.
I would love to know your thoughts, which one of these is your favourite? Also, let me know your favourite Alice in Wonderland character? Mine is definitely the Cheshire Cat.
As always have a fabulous nail day guys, and I will chat to you all again soon.

Not much going on here, my nan has gone on an unexpected visit to Ireland which means no Sunday roast, boo hoo. For today's post, I have another fabulous UK indie brand to share with you. So let's have a look-see.

Welcome back everyone, I hope you have all been having a lovely Easter weekend. Lexi had plenty of eggs to keep her occupied, I think I will probably have a hyperactive toddler for the next few months. Today's post is a Spring collection from UK indie Princess Nail Lacquer, this collection is called I wanna be a care bear. It has four beautiful creme polishes that are perfect for Spring.

Hey, everyone, I hope you all had a really lovely weekend. Again I am a day late in posting, unfortunately, I am still suffering from this migraine so doing anything computer related has been tough lately. I have had to write this post in bits and pieces as looking at a computer screen for too long is not a possibility at the moment. I have a really fun post for you though, so I hope that will make up for it. I have 4 gorgeous polishes from 4 fabulous UK indie brands, so let's take a closer look.

Hello my lovelies, as you can probably see I am a day late in getting this post up. The last few day's I've been suffering from a massive migraine so looking at a computer screen was not at the top my list. However today I have a brand new UK indie brand to show you, so hopefully, that will make up for my lateness. So let's jump in and take a look.
