My Manicure: Splish Splash

Splish, splash,
A bit of polish dash,
My manicure on a Thursday night,
Polish on and cling film rub,
And my manicure came out just right.

My Manicure: Hot N Cold

You're hot then you're cold,
You're green then you're teal,
You're on then you're off,
You're wrong then alright,
It's green then it's teal,
Is thermal polish for real?
This time we kiss and make up,
'Cos you're hot then you're cold,
Like you're supposed to behave,
It's not all bought in vain!


The trials and tribulations of someone with frozen digit syndrome (aka thermal polish and I don't mix)

My Manicure: Bursts of Blue

A burst of blues happened upon my hand,
A burst with tape is what I had planned,
With cobalt, aqua and a touch of teal,
This vice versa look is quite surreal,
Inspired by a pattern on a book's spine,
I knew I had to make it a mani mine.

My Manicure: Talking Head

Today my manicure has a purposeful intent,
Despite my cough, on completing I was hell bent,
To stick and paint  with some new vinyls in my grasp,
To ignore my pounding head and croaky rasp,
Choosing some colours new in my arsenal too,
My first KB Shimmer, a brand to me brand new,
Combined with vampire buff and vinyls to stick,
From She Sells Seashells, that Sarah chick,
Is branching out within her store front on the shore,
Soon you too can try her new loot, get ready to explore!

Featuring yet to be released nail vinyls from @shesellsseashellsuk, @kbshimmer and @opi_products.

My Manicure: Marc Jacobs

Tonight my fingers fancied some designer threads,
So I went searching my stash of polish reds,
I picked out Big Apple Red and added Camelot,
And painted and stamped, this is what  I wrought,
It's based on someone who works for Marc Jacobs in NYC,
Her name is Dana and I loved the clothes on her body,
Red and black fabric with a white pattern block,
This is what my nails tonight do rock.

My Manicure: I'm Blue

I'm blue da ba dee da ba dey,
Blue is the colour that I wear, 
Blue are the roses and all of the dots, 
I have a mani and it is so blue.

My Manicure: Katy Perry

You're swirls and you're spots, 
You're pink and you're blue,
You're round and you're striped,
You're made all of white,
It's tonight that's the night,
When you're singing so right,
In Scotland we'll see,
The great Katy Perry.

My Manicure: Matte Magic?

Tonight I'm called Coraline Jones,
A dark glitter with blue and gold tones,
It started off glossy with a beautiful shine,
Now it's matte with hopes of magic mine,
Matte glitters are something I like to love,
But I think this glitter is with shine better off.

My Manicure: Spot the Difference

How do you stand out in a crowd,
With all your friends lovely and round?
Do you choose to stand and join,
With your friends of similar coin?
Or do you choose to be bright and bold,
breaking out from that safe mould?
Be you joined or be you not,
There are always differences to spot.

Triplet Tuesday: Bippidi Boppidi Boo

Salagadoola mechicka boola bippidi bobbidi boo,
Put 'em together and what have you got: bippidi bobbidi boo,
Today on a Tuesday, with triple the pics, we have a mani for you.

Triplet together with Vanessa, Christabell and me,
We have a mani inspired so delightfully,
By a boppy pillow owned by Vee's new baby.

We saw the pillow and our minds were struck,
With the idea of a mani our polish minds ran amuck,
So triplet together and perhaps you'll like, if we have good luck.

Salagadoola mechicka boola bippidi bobbidi boo,
Put 'em together and what have you got: bippidi bobbidi boo,
Today on a Tuesday, with triple the pics, we have a mani for you.

My Manicure: Mouret Mani

Tonight my mani is a Mouret frock,
One modelled on the fashion catwalk,
Stripes of lemon, green, black and pink,
Along with blocks of colourful sync,
Paired with my favourite off white,
And that's my mani this Monday night.

#saimassalon Inspired by a @roland_mouret dress from Spring Summer 2014

My Manicure: Something Wicked This Way Comes

Wicked on the stage is our girlie plan,
So wicked I had to wear on my hands,
Glinda on the right in her pale blue frock,
Elphaba on the left with her stripy sock,
Those famous Ruby pumps are on my thumbs,
Tomorrow these hands will have fun with my chums,
A matinee show followed by Italian grub,
Cocktails, some chat and maybe a club,
We'll see Wicked on the Glasgow stage,
Perhaps we'll be wicked, it's all the rage.

My Manicure: Going Back To Gradients

Tonight I attempted a rare gradient,
It didn't turn out exactly as my intent,
My gradients are never gloriously smooth,
I'm not fishing so don't compliment to soothe,
I guess I need to practice to perfect this art,
But I've done a couple so that's a start,
I taped up a digit and stamped and striped,
On another I stamped and that one I like.

My Manicure: May Day

The first of May heralds the coming of Spring,
When the sun will shine and blooms it will bring,
In Britain the day is celebrated with a day off work,
Upon the first Monday in May, we're given this perk,
At least you do if you don't work where I do,
We're given extra days in our allowance in lieu,
On this day in May, I worked from home in my nightwear,
Planning this mani when I had a moment to spare,
Brights on my digits, against a grey Scottish day,
Hoping for Spring to come knocking my way.
