Hello there my lovelies.  Allow me to introduce myself to you, my name is Mimi from http://mimimanicures.blogspot.co.uk/ and I am really really excited to do this guest post for the amazing Soul Shakedown Party.  Now firstly I have to address something….I LOVE this blogs name, as soon as I saw it it made me smile very much….in my own head I am having a maaahooosive soul party, with soul legends singing to me….ahhhhh!

Oops I digress, im sorry lol.  So I was approached by the lovely Soul Shakedown to do a guest post.  Of course this is a no brainer for me, it was such an honour to be asked.

I decided to to a simple design for this post which actually turned out pretty cool, I love the effect of the white on the blue base.mimi1

The base is an amazing beautiful blue by Different Dimesion called Homeboy.  I have to say, if you love a good blue polish then this is really one you need in your collection, it is bright, beautiful and holographic…what more can you ask?!  I used my Models Own nail art pens for the black and white design and finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite.mimi4

So I thank you all for listening to my ramblings and I would like to extend my thank you’s to the lovely Soul shakedown Party once again for asking me to do this.  I really hope you liked my design.  Now off you pop to have your own soul party….im off to mine lol.  Lots of polish love Mimi xxxx

 

Introducing Textured Hair Tuesdays

Ladies and Gents, I’ve decided to dedicate Tuesdays to Natural Hair. It should be no surprise to you that I’m a little more than obsessed with textured hair. Having taken the transitioning journey myself starting back  in ’08 and then becoming fully natural in ’09- I have learned to love and appreciate natural hair and the beauty of different textures. I still ooh and  ahh over gorgeous hair like Elle Varner’s and I still struggle with my hair on a daily basis, but then I see a nice head of hair again and remember my own good hair days- however few they may be. 

So Ladies..Gents..Whether you have made the decision, you’re still thinking about it or you just love textured hair- My purpose is only to share the textured love.
