NOTD: OPI Spotted

Hi all!

Today I am recycling another manicure by "pimping" it with a few "special effects" polishes.

The base is Color Club Ulterior Motive and I decided to "funk it up" by adding some glitter.  So here it is with a coat of China Glaze United which is part of their Breast Cancer Awareness collection.


The next day I was still liking the colour but wanted to change it up a wee bit so this time I added a coat of OPI Spotted and I must say WOW!


Where you lucky enough to get your hands on OPI Spotted?

    1. I was very lucky to get in on a group order from France, glad I did as it's quite unique, though think that is to change as I'm sure I heard the layla are bringing out "bubble effect" polishes which look similar xo

  3. I ordered it from France! Tried it once and found it scuffed easily. Need to try it again!

    It's an awesome effect for sure :-)

    1. It kind of flakes off, even with a top coat if that makes sense. But since I rarely have polish on for more than a day, that doesn't overly affect me xo

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I know theyre a little out of date but I hope you still find them interesting.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