NOTD: Treasures By Tan - Grama Cupcake

Hello lovelies!

I was recently lucky enough to win a competition from the lovely Treasures By Tan.  I got to choose 3 polishes and she also was sending me a surprise polish from her new collection.

Grama Cupcake is the first I'm going to share with you.  A milky white base full of pink and blue shimmer/glitter, pink and blue dots and green and purple hexes.  There are also pink squares hidden within this beauty!

I started with 2 coats of Lime Crime Milky Ways, the added 2 coats of Grama Cupcake.  Application was lovely and smooth, no fishing for glitters, I didn't have to place them.  They just went on smoothly.

I wore this polish on Easter Sunday as it screamed EASTER to me.

I can't wait to try my other polishes and I really hope you check out


  1. Great polish, I love anything that reminds me of cupcakes :)

    1. Isn't it gorgeous! That's exactly why I chose it =) xo

  2. Incredibly pretty, I want to buy this one!

    1. You should! It's so delicate and spring like =) 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I know theyre a little out of date but I hope you still find them interesting.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
