NOTD: Glitzology - Starry Night

Hi all!

Another beautiful Glitzology polish today - Starry Night. I think this is one of my favourite because a) it's blue and b) star shaped glitters.


I started with 2 coats of Essence - Let's Get Lost. This is a lovely smooth polish. I used 2 thin coats to even it out but 1 would have been fine if I didn't have such small nail beds.


To this I added 2 coats of Starry Night, a clear base full of deep blue micro shimmer that gives the base a navy look. Add to this blue micro glitters, silver holographic hexes and twinkling stars. This polish is AMAZING!



And keeping with the Christmas theme I went with some reindeer. Of course you all recognise Rudolph with his pretty, oh so red nose. But I've also featured one of his lesser known chums - Chet. (This will only make sense if you've seen The Santa Clause 3 and if you haven't seen it then you must! It's brilliant!)


For these lil dudes I used Nails Inc - Fashion Fawn (appropriate name) then some Models Own Nail Art Pens as well as Essence - Kiss On Top Of The Rock for Rudolph's nose.



Who's your favourite Christmas character?

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I know theyre a little out of date but I hope you still find them interesting.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