The easiest leopard print nails ever

Easy leopard nail polish

To me, leopard print should be considered a neutral.

It’s no secret that I love a bit of animal print from my shoes to bags to jackets. I also love some leopard nail art but lately I just don’t have time for that sort of thing.

That’s why I love this genius new ANE polish from Uslu Airlines.

Use it as a topcoat on your fave polish or on clear nails. It’s a fabulous nail art cheat, and you know I love a beauty shortcut.

Scented Nail Polish – Nail it! by Sportsgirl

Scented nail polish – who knew there was such a thing?

I mean, you don’t generally go up and ask someone to smell your finger, do you?

But what if a gentleman wants to kiss your hand, or you touch your boyfriend’s face? Then these tropical scented polishes are perfect.

I love the novelty when I’m doing my nails as the scent is better than the usual polish aroma. It makes painting my nails more fun.

I’m still obsessed with all things orange, so tangerine is my favourite, but the pineapple is perfect for summer.

How do you feel about scented nail polishes? What’s your favourite fragrant polish?

Hello Darling have recently released some new nail wraps with some of the best designs I’ve ever seen.

You know I’m a huge fan of nail stickers as the easiest nail art around. These Hello Darling wraps are the perfect way to fake nail art.

My picks are these adorable Versus dog and cat nails,  and I love the galaxy nails too. Actually, I love all of the Hello Darling designs.

These nail wraps are quite flexible and very easy to apply. You can re-position them if you put them on crooked and just file the end to fit your nail.

At $8.95 these nail wraps are a cost effective way to fake nail art, and they last for almost a week without chips. You can paint over them with a top coat for extra protection.
