Manicure Monday: 1st September 2014

Happy Mani Monday everyone!

This week we have been SO busy with the launch of our NEW Once Collection. In light of this, we are going to kick off this nail admiration post with a look at our new polish called Melange. This vintage teal shade with flecks of goldust within has been a hit already, encapturing nail enthusiasts attention with its diversity of colour and unique tone.

Lucy from Lucy’s Stash shows us how she rocks it with her pretty gold rings:

Last but not least, we have found a lovely nail by Margaret using our Nail Varnish in Milf (one of my personal faves!). She used a stamp for the pretty decorations over the top also which helps give a really neat finish.
