Blog Changes

I have decided to start a new blog just for nail polish stuff and keep this blog for home, garden, lifestyle stuff.

I don't really expect anyone to read either blog, but it is a good record for me.

The new nail polish blog is Mani-Mad and I will keep updating this with my repaints and other nail polish / manicure info.

Thanks for reading. :)

Spring is coming...

It is certainly starting to look like springtime in my garden.

I thought my magnolias that I blogged about here had passed away, but to my surprise last night I found that both of them are flowering.

Magnolia Lennei Alba Magnificence:

More flowers to come!

Magnolia San Jose:

2 big flowers coming out:

And my hyacinths are well and truly out and looking gorgeous:

The bulbs are yet to come out, hopefully they won't be far away!

OPI ~ Chocolate Moose

Didn't think I'd love this colour as much as I do! Looks much better on than in the bottle.

Repaint: Revitanail ~ Miss Scarlet

Another messy manicure thanks to a very shaky right hand. I'm thinking that doing manicures is good for regaining strength and muscle control in my wrist after the operation so am continuing on with them... Even though they're messy!

This is "Miss Scarlet" by Revitanail. It's meant to be a strengthening polish. This is 3 coats and I can still see the whites of my nail tips through the polish. I really need to start undercoating red polishes with grey.

Repaint: China Glaze ~ Metro Collection ~ Urban Night

My nails are terribly short as I cut them short prior to having carpal tunnel surgery the week before last. It was all very sudden due to a cancellation and as the surgery was on my right hand I have struggled to paint my nails neatly as the ligament across the base of my palm was cut! So please excuse the mess!

This is from China Glaze's Fall 2011 Metro Collection and is called Urban Night.
