My Manicure: Summer Satsuma

Summer satsuma packed in my lunchbox every day,
Juicy flesh to chew as part of my luncheon buffet,
Succulent and tasty, the smell a potent perfume,
Able to be smelled across the entire room,
Combined with dark chocolate, it's my favourite delight,
But even alone, it packs a fruity punch of might.

My Manicure: Lovelace

Turquoise lace upon bare skin and pink,
A bright combination dontcha think?
A frock I spied on a television show,
For this manicure was the inspo.

My Manicure: Blanket Stitch

Eleven colours are before your eyes,
All joined together by blanket stitches,
Where one ends, another is spied,
For that's where the colour switches.

My Manicure: Blue and Green

Stripes of European blue upon Barry green,
Green hare glitter on my thumb can be seen,
A simple manicure on this July Thursday,
A quick post before bedtime this fine day.

Twin Tuesday: Mother Nature

Twin Tuesday, where have you been? 
We've not met for so long, it's obscene! 
Today in the glorious summer month of July,
Sophie spotted a natural gradient with her eye,
To wear it on nails is what she proposed,
And when Aydi suggested twins, I exposed,
Her eyes to this beauty of mother earth,
And together to these manis we gave birth.

My Manicure: Bute-iful

To Bute we went only just last week,
Scottish sun and architecture we did seek,
In a lovely house on the Mount Stuart estate,
300 acres of woods and beach on our plate,
The Marquess' palatial house of red brick hue,
Of which we were given a private tour,
It's where Stella Beatle got married you know,
My cousin and I almost ditched our wedded beaux,
When we saw the racing driver Marquess walk out,
With thoughts of living in the house of good clout,
But we retired back to our modest stone house,
To watch the world cup and paint nails in quiet as a mouse,
Watched over by donkeys, horses and cows,
And in the day a woodland trek before a sun filled drowse,
On grass and beach before bathing in clear Scottish sea,
Before taking a sunny picture of a mani made by me.

My Manicure: Fabulous Frock

A mani inspired by a fabulous frock,
A Siriano creation I'd love to rock,
Long black fabric covered in print,
Leafy swirls in gold and teal tint,
This is the mani for my Bute holiday,
I've decided not to paint while I'm away.

My Manicure: Glittering Gradient

On this here day, the third of July,
A gradient was in my mani eye,
In three shades with glequins atop,
I paired it with a stamping crop,
A purple edge with silver stamp,
A little bit something to up the amp.
