Newspaper Nails


I’m a total newbie when it comes to nails but when I saw this tutorial on My Life Through the Eyes of the Web this morning I just had to give it a go and I love it. It’s one of the easiest nail art looks I’ve seen.

I selected a news piece about some of my favourite artists from the paper and cut them pretty roughly into 10 nail size pieces.

I then done 3 coats of Avon’s Speed Dry Nail polish in Prompt and Pearly, any light colour will work though. This nail polish is fantastic, it is so quick to dry that it took me the same amount of time to do 3 coats as when I do one of some other nail polish’s.

Then one nail at a time I soaked a piece of newspaper in mouth wash although any alcohol-based product (even vodka itself) will work and then I placed it gently on my nail and held it down. Carefully lift it up after a few seconds and your done! Awesome!

My nails now have Bruno Mars and Ellie Goulding all over them!


Sally Hansen – Complete Salon Manicure 670 Midnight in NY – Product Review

rosieReview and Photo by Rosie, written by Tams

Our lovely reviewer and alternative model Rosie took Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure for a spin this weekend, turned into quite a long drive actually. 


Rosie was totally delighted when she open this package as it’s right up her street. She loved that it was a sexy black with enough glitter to add some glamour but without over doing it.

This nail polish is an all-in-one, hardener base and top coat + colour. Rosie found the brush size to be perfect and application easy, even on her little toe. The photo above was taken 3 days after it was put on so this nail polish clearly has quite some staying-power. It’s held out through a whole busy-mum’s weekend and that deserves a huge thumbs up from us!

Rosie has already been busy checking out other shades and recommending this to others so it looks like Sally Hansen has a winner here.

The only problem Rosie found was it does take a good few coats to get a decent coverage but when you’re skipping the base coat and top coat that’s not so bad. It was also really quick to dry so it wasn’t too time-consuming all in all.

Rosie already has this planned into her next photo shoot. Oh I do love it when we find and fall in love with a great product!

What Rosie loved most: The perfect brush size.

And least: That it needed 3/4 coats.

Try it: £6.99,
