Launching: Nail That!

I want you image

It's safe to say I am a daydreamer. I constantly have ideas running through my head. One of these has become much more than an idea in the past few months and is now ready to be launched. So without further ado, I want to introduce you to Nail that!

Nail that! is a nail blogging community where the main aim is for people to be inspired by others with anything to do with nails. So whether you have created an amazing nail design, a tutorial on the perfect manicure or even a nail varnish that has really floated your boat, I'm looking for you!

I'm welcoming submissions from everyone - it doesn't matter if you are a blogger with a million followers or a blogger with none. The most important thing is that you want to be part of a nail community which helps to inspire others by contributing post content.

So... if you are interested in becoming part of nail blogging community and submitting post content, then head over to Nail that! and click on the submissions page for more information.

On a side note, this blog (Teacups) will remain as it is and will still be updated as much as I can.

Now that Autumn is in full swing, I have been enjoying cosy nights in armed with a large mug of tea, a good book or a cross-stitch (Granny much?). I think when Autumn creeps in, I like to step away from the laptop sometimes and enjoy the simple life before the internet, which is why, unless scheduled, there has not been much regular posting or youtube action.

What do you enjoy once Autumn kicks in?

PS:I honestly need to start doing these Instagram posts much more often - I've had to omit a fair few pictures this time.
