NOTD: OPI - Metallic 4 Life & Cult Nails - Charlatan

Hi all!

This is a bit of a mish mash mani today. I'm still sporting some leopard print on my ring and thumb from my previous "Money Smart Nail Art" post but I wanted to show you this fabulous combo I used today.

OPI - Metallic 4 Life was part of the Nicki Minaj collection, though I actually forgot about it when swatching so thought I would include it now. It's a black creme full of silver glitter. The glitter really holds its own too, no sinking problems.

Cult Nails - Charlatan is a colour changing too coat. It looks bright pink in the bottle but when applied over Metallic 4 Life it transforms it into the most beautiful blue/pink/purple duochrome. And with the glitter is Metallic 4 Life it's got a galaxy look about it.

I never thought this was going to be the end result so I'm really pleased I combined the 2. Such a gorgeous combo!


  1. I'm loving the colour combos. It looks wicked!

    1. I was so pleased with how charlatan and metallic 4 life worked together =) xo

  2. The accent nails are super sweet!

    1. Aww thank you =) the Barry M gellies really pop! 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I know theyre a little out of date but I hope you still find them interesting.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
