Swatches: Accessorize Dragonfly & Bumblebee

Hi all!

So I heard through the blogger grapevine that there were pretties to be had.

For those of you familiar with the Nails Inc they released a new type of polish this year called Sprinkles.

These were no sooner released that W7 followed with their own (much cheaper) version.

And now Accessorize have followed suit.


The above pictures were kindly donate by the lovely Lyndsay over at Pie's, Eyes & Other Sparkly Stories... please do pop over and say hello to her.

The only thing is Accessorize have went 1 further and released new colours.  HUZZAH!

Dragonfly & Bumblebee (which should be yellow imo)

So excuse the lack of clean up I was just trying these out.

Dragonfly was opaque in 3 coats and had a nice application.

Bumble Bee was opaque in 2 coats and again no problems with application.

Here is a close up as you can see they are like a crelly (creme/jelly) with navy/black matte glitter through them.

So... do you think you will be buying them?


  1. I've got the W7 ones, I love themm :)

    1. I have them also, they're lovely, love these new colours though, they're really fun =) xo

  2. Yes I'll deffo be buying as soon as I can find them in a Superdrug that has them! I love this size of sprinkles rather than the finer sprinkles, much more dramatic x

    1. If you need me to nab them for you, give me a shout. Oh I got my prize today, thank you so much 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I know theyre a little out of date but I hope you still find them interesting.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, 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
