New Techniques and Best of British!

There is s much snow.  So.  Much.  Snow.  This is terrible.  And more just keeps falling out of the sky.  I'm hoping for a miraculous temperature rise before my walk to work tomorrow morning..could happen right?

Anyhoo, first things first.  As of next week, I'll be attempting one new technique each week.  I've made a big list of techniques I've yet to try (although suggestions of things to add are still welcome!) and each week I'll randomly (literally randomly - I am sad enough to use a random number generator for this) select three from the list for you to choose between.  This week the three options are:

sugar spun manicure
velvet nails
jelly sandwich

So pop over to my Facebook page now to vote for which one you'd like to see me attempt first!

If you don't use Facebook, just leave a comment here with your vote, and I'll add it to the totals from the Facebook polls :)

And now to find out what all the lovely British Bloggers have been up to this week!

British Nail Bloggers

This week Lyndsay at Pie's Eyes has created a beautiful Feather Manicure using her stamping plates.

The 31 day challenge still going strong over at Emma's Little Corner with this watercolour mani and this stamping over a gradient.

Wendy at Wendy's Delights found a gem of a very old untried Saffron polish, which is super sparklicious!!

Sam at Polished Art was inspired by all the Christmas chocolate she's still munching away on to create this Ferrero Rocher manicure!

This week The Teenage Shopaholic has been... trying out furry nails! She swatched and reviewed MUA Fur Effects and was pleasantly surprised!

Susan at Lacquerland has been trying the 3 day oil & naked nail challenge here and was very happy with the results!

JustTalkNails has swatches of A Englands Dragon - one of the best scattered holo greens!

This week Nada tried her hands at some flocking; she couldn't resist her furry nails! Check it out!

Mimi tries her hand at tribal eye nails and LOVES them!

Simple Star Stamping this week for the ABC Challenge on Enigmatic Rambles.

Tara at TarasTalons took her basic flock mani up a notch! Check it out here :D  Why wait until Easter!

Claire at nuthin' but a nail thing has been doing some nail art with incorporating her latest Lush Lacquer haul. This one's a blue fishtail manicure with Dreamsicle.... sparkles!

Ruth hasn't had the chance to post since New Year's, but why not look at her New Year nails until she has the time to do some more fun posts!

Steph at Never Mind Suzi is getting to grips with stamping after all - practice makes perfect.

Vic is finally back (and already has posts scheduled to the end of February, just in case she runs out). One of her faves from this week is Song of the Black Swan.

PrettyKittyClaws is trying out the new Enchanted Polish Care Bear collection with Daydream Surprise.  So sparkly and pretty!

Pish Posh and Polish's Kerrie has been working on her 31 day challenge this week, but a simple swatch of ORLY's It's Not Rocket Science is her favourite post of the week and may be her top green polish of all time!

Danielle created a purple skittle manicure using a-England and Zoya favourites over at Totally Nailed, and also swatched some new Zoya purchases this week!

Lou has been having lots of fun with Illamasqua polishes this week starting with the Raindrops reissue and then the lovely Glitterati.  This may be the beginning of a beautiful love affair.

What have you been wearing on your nails this week?
