You are so talented you make me ashamed!

I love the Hungry Caterpiller nails, and my husband loves the Dr Seuss ones.

Why don't you contact one of the bigger bloggers to see if they want to trial them?

I would just find someone who you like, and see if they want to review them for you, and supply them FOC.

Have a look at The Crumpet, she has quite a following. Worst is they can say no.

I loooove the hungry caterpillar nails! All your nails are so fab Smile

Why oh why hasn't someone created the perfect topcoat yet, that dries quickly, but doesn't shrink, or crack, or smudge, or do anything else nasty to our beautiful manicures..?

It had quietened down after Halloween, but Lord of The Rings nails have gone a bit mad now. Assuming its all due to The Hobbit coming soon (excited bounce )
Trying to get my Xmas stock built up now because I'm on holiday end of November beginning December so I want to get organised (for a change haha)

See that was another I'd not considered. I'm quite guilty of doing the things I love rather than the things that will sell, for example I'm currently all excited to try Gollum and Gandalf. I realise this is a niche market but its fun. I'd be better served actually painting Christmas nails.

I get far too easily distracted to be any good in business Laughing

I just think about what people spend their cash on. I see girls at work spend hundreds on Hen Parties, so why not nails to go with it. Esp personalised ones with either names or dates or 'bridesmaid' etc on them

I realise I am currently the flakiest of flaky posters/bloggers. Lots going on at home with daughters arm issues so I've not really had much chance to actually do anything.

Anyway, today I did take the first steps into starting up again. I posted a couple of things over at

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I've been working hard on my next set of designs, one theme is going to be Easter, I didn't want to post this on the blog and give other ebayers the heads up so I'm showing you guys for input.
Its a rough prototype, the egg is shaped, the chick fits in the egg when the hands are together. Currently waiting flocking powder to make chicky extra cute! Still playing with colours and while I know I want pastels Im not sure this blue is the way to go. Any input appreciated as ever

I agree that blue is a bit dark for pastel, do you have no7 minty? That is a brilliant pastel blue.
Lilacs and pale pinks look eastery. You could also do white nails with coloured dots. I would think similar shades to Cadbury mini eggs.

Also I have seen those batman nails elsewhere, there is a Birmingham based blogger that did a set, think I read about it in the metro. She has all fancy things like Disney UP aswell, she uses fakes to do all sorts of designs.
Wil try and find a link.

Ohh I'd like to see those!
It's hard to be original with a subject like Batman because everything has been done, Twice! All you can hope for is some originality in the combination, and whilst I've seen a full hand of shaped nails or a full hand of symbols I've not seen this combination before. The other unique thing about these is they are UV Very Happy

If ever you want to post things semi quiet you can always go members only Smile

Love the chickys

Have you considered doing the other fingers a lemon/lilac/pink/blue with white spots to make it eastery. I wonder if the issue is the yellow spots don't show up on the blue so well?

I'm waiting for my flocking powder to come so I can play I think, I do have a Models Own pale yellow and a few pastel colours actually but the blue looked more pastely in the bottle (its a cheap superdrug one I think). Back to the drawing board on that I think Smile

They're great pulliptears. I agree with Sal though, I would use white dots over a pastel colour as it will stand out a bit more.
