NOTD: Nails Inc Regent's Park Road, Colour Club Beyond the Mistletoe & Covered in Diamonds

So this manicure nearly didn't happen.  I'd done it but for the most random of reasons it ended up all over my dog!

Anyway I eventually got round to doing it again.

I've got lots of new goodies to try cuz I hit pay-dirt in TK Maxx yesterday.  Found what looked to be the Nails Inc Midas Touch collection; Wardour Mews, New Kings Road and New Burlington Place except with Regent's Park Road instead of Clifford Street, a set of 3 Nails Inc; Emerald Street, Garrick Street and Burlington Arcade.  Also a Colour Club glitter collection, only problem with it is the box is mis-labled but after some googling a found this to be a common occurrence and  found that the polishes are Sugarplum Fairy, Beyond the Mistletoe, Gingerbread, Magic Attraction, Hot Couture, Covered in Diamonds and a topcoat =)

I decided I felt like spring time nails today so chose the following.

Regent's Park Road is a sparkly emerald green, very similar to Emerald Street but the sparkle is what really makes it stand out.  Nice smooth application though quite sheer so 3 thin coats gave me complete coverage.

I used Colour Club Covered in Diamonds on my thumb, this is a flakie style nail polish that really does make your nails look like they're covered in Diamonds, the little glitter pieces are all irregularly shaped and turn so many different colours.  Staying with Colour Club I used Beyond the Mistletoe on my ring finger and oh! what a sparkly polish.  It's your typical glitter a clear polish with micro sized particles of green and silver holographic glitter.  The holograph effect is stunning!  When the light hits it you get lots of different colour combos.  I used 2 coats of each of these and then topped with seche vite for extra glossiness!




These were all taken in artificial light as most of the good daylight had gone by then =(

Please feel free to comment or ask any questions =)

I'm trying.

Hi! So I've been trying my damnedest to keep this blog going. And I'm not doing very well. I had drafted some posts a while back (which I will still go ahead and post). I never got round to posting them at the time because I had an iPhone and the app just didn't want to work for me.
I know theyre a little out of date but I hope you still find them interesting. So what's been happening since I last posted?  Well I met a guy (on Tinder of all places), we got engaged last November (I'll do a proper post on this), and we got marries this September!  We enjoyed a wonderful honeymoon in Japan and for the past month its been back to reality. I am going to change this blog a bit.  Before it could have always been classified as a beauty blog. Now I think it'll be more of an eclectic blog (by the way check out She's Eclectic one of my all time favourite bloggers). Anyway,  sorry about all the words and lack of pictures bit I hope to rectify that soon. Bye for now.

Money Smart Nail Art Competition Entry

Hi all!
Wow!  I'm really shocked, MoneySupermarket.com have invited me to participate in their Money Smart Nail Art Bloggers Competition.  This means I am in with the chance to win a prize worth £300, how amazing would that be!


Anyway for my regular followers you will know that I'm mad on leopard print!  So I thought what better design to do a tutorial on.  
Materials Required: Base Coat - I use OPI Matte Nail Envy Selection of polishes - cremes are best for opacity but you can use glitters if you build them up Nail Art pen or Dotting Tool  Top Coat - I use Seche Vite

Paint your nails with the base coat to protect your nail from staining (I also find that Nail Envy encourages nail growth). *A good tip is before you start, wipe your nails with some nail polish remover, this is called squeaking the nail, it will remove any excess oil, making your mani last longer.

Paint your nails your chosen colours, any colours work but I've chose a few of the Barry M Gellies (which are c…

Pastel Polka Dots

Hello lovelies!
A lazy Friday night in resulted in playing with polish and with studs. 

Polishes used: Lime Crime - Parfait Day Treasures By Tan - Gramma Cupcake

I was in the mood for some spring pastels to brighten up this horrid grey weather we've been suffering recently. 

I added the studs as an afterthought, I was going to attempt some freehand art but I love how these turned out.
