NOTD: Essence Bashful

Hi all!

Welcome to my first proper post since my return from my hols.

Today I am sporting nubbins. Before we went away I got my nails chopped and shaped and I can't believe how much they've grown in 2 weeks, 1 of the benefits of living in a warm climate I suppose.

Anyway I'm embracing my nubbins by sporting more autumnal colours. When I was out and about yesterday I FINALLY managed to nab some of the Essence Snow White collection, they didn't have much so I took all I could and Bashful, a lovely olive green with a golden shimmer was 1 of the few they had left.

I also wanted to try the lovely prize polish out that I win from Polish Monsters recent giveaway so added Girly Bits Wet Bikini to my ring and thumb.

1 coat OPI Nail Envy
2 coats Essence Bashful
2 coats Girly Bits Wet Bikini (ring & thumb)
1 coat Seche Vite

So are you still rocking summery brights or have you made the transition of seasons yet?


  1. Wonderful post dear.

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I know theyre a little out of date but I hope you still find them interesting.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, 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…

Nail Lacquer UK - Turkish Delight

Hello lovelies!
Today I'm wearing Nail Lacquer UK - Turkish Delight. I'm a huge indie fan and I love that there are some brilliant UK indies out there.
Turkish Delight is a pink jelly, full of pink/purple circle glitters.  There's a stunning iridescent purple shimmer through it also.

I can't describe how stunning this is in real life and I struggled to capture it's beauty, this was the best I could manage with the bathroom lights, lol.

I reckon with the shimmer this would look fab over black!
P.S. Can't say I wasn't attracted to this polish purely for its name, hehe. xo
