My Birthday Blog Nail Party!

Yep, you read that right - there is a party right here!!!
I wanted to do something special this year and celebrate with all the friends I made since
starting the blog last year, and becoming part of the IG nail community.

So I invited everyone to take part in a "Birthday Blog Nail Party"!

The concept is simple - it's lots of manis on lots of people on one place - just like there would be at
an actual party, with one exception - these are all pictures!

Here they are:
Brie aka @strawbrie
(a unicorn if I ever met one - Brie is forever my cupcake)
Charlee aka @chazeecat
(the loveliest lady you will ever meet - Charlee shares my love of cats and polish swaps!)
Christinemay aka Nails At 2 AM
(I was lucky to do a Secret Santa with her last year and she had been a guest blogger here as well)
Courtney aka @talesfromthemakeupbag
(who shares my love of shopping and polish, and makes amazing shortbread!)
Holly aka @hollysagemini and Number One #teamnikolai supporter
Cheeying aka @inkyinkying (who sent me a box of 35 polishes and a UNICORN for my bday!)
Jess aka @radjecca and Dusty Swatcher
(who loves all animals, lives in the middle of NOWHERE and still stays polished!)
Jess and Baron Von Fluffy Boots (he is Nikolai's Canadian pal and Jess is my kindred spirit)
Laura aka @fabuloz87
(who is a fellow Perth-ie!!!!)
Lena aka @lena_bier
(my lovely polish swap friend all the way in RUSSIA!)
Angelique aka Meisie's Nails
(this woman can fly a plane and look HOT doing it! check our her shoes and bikinis!)
Mai aka @nannanap
(she painted Nikolai!!!! also Mai was the very first person I met who shared my love for polish!)
Ricarda aka @justricarda
(one of my awesome swap buddies all the way in the USA!!!!)
Sarah-Jane aka @swils (a fellow Aussie nail junkie!)
Tammy aka @ohmygoshpolish
(I don't even know where to start - talented and fun, also she knows some sport of  youth potion wizardry)
Tara aka @lokislacquer
(talented and kind, one of my best nail friends!)
Zoe aka @camoandzap (Tara's daughter and equally talented!)
Theresa aka @graciezac 
(the sweetest most caring lady, my second mum and a friend through and through
just look at the blog post she wrote)
Teneil aka @shadesofphoenix
(such a lovely girl, she'll take over the world in no time!
And another beautiful blog post!)
Katja aka @krockerica
(one of my first swap buddies and a good friend)
Stacey aka @staceymeldrum
(this lady just gets me 100%! Jinx)
Sam aka @samanthafreeman
(a pocket sized hottie with a love of cats and nails, fellow Perth-ie!)
So here they are - the lovely ladies who arrived at my party on time, 
but I have a feeling we may have some late comers?

It's not too late to jump in - just send me a pic of your PARTY NAILS!

Watch this space - I'm off to open presents and paint my nails!

Fun with Foils and Studs

I was contacted by KKCentreHK recently (flattered!!!!) to review some products.
I chose the foil and the round studs from the array of products, which promptly arrived! 
The foils came with the special glue 

(although the brush is a bit too long for the bottle and bends - application is not a problem).

#RandomJuneMani - what it is and how to join

I had a few requests on IG to explain what the #RandomJuneMani is all about.
Here is a little post outlining the basic principal.
And I can't take the credit for "inventing" this - the idea was suggested
by one of the members of the June No Buy group (Hi Erica!)

The idea is that if you're stuck for inspiration, or need a distraction to stop you shopping,
this will help to challenge and inspire you!

You have to start by assigning a number to each polish in your stash - it doesn't matter how big or
small your collection is - you can still do this.
Here is a snapshot from my list in Excel format
The next step is to use the Random Number Generator to draw a number
(Min is always 1 and Max is the amount of polishes in your collection)
This is what is looks like
Once you have a number, match it to a polish in your stash:
 And that's it - that's the polish to use!
I chose to draw 2-3 numbers at a time and make them work together.

If you do try this - let me know and tag @cats_n_nails and also use the #RandomJuneMani tag.
Thanks for stopping by!
