Review: Barbara Daly Wicked

August 31st, 2012 (No Comments)

Yesterday I missed my train home from work l. I had to wait ages for the next one so instead of sitting around on a platform, I decided to take a wander over to the nearest shopping centre and have a look around. I popped into the Tesco Direct to get a new notebook and […]

It’s a bit Tiffany-esque

August 30th, 2012 (4 Comments)

So after wearing Topshop’s Easy Breezy for a day and a half, I still colour not bring myself to remove it. I really do love this colour! So for this manicure, I decided to recycle yesterday’s. Yesterday I received some new stamping plates in the post along with some gems! How exciting! I’ve never used […]

Review: Topshop Easy Breezy

It was payday on Tuesday. This usually means good things for the polish collection and bad things for the purse, but actually I did behave myself this time. Sort of. I told myself I was only allowed to buy one polish in the shops that I went in to, and ended up coming home with […]

Gothic nails for a rocking wedding

August 28th, 2012 (2 Comments)

Yesterday was the wedding of two of my friends and as they are very much the rocker type, they decided to theme their wedding around rock music and attire. Queue stress about outfits and makeup. In the end I chose a lovely dress from Next that was a dark purple, green and grey floral patterned […]

It’s finally here. My long awaited Piccadilly Arcade post. Several weeks ago I as visiting my family and my sister showed me a new polish she had gotten. THIS ONE. I wanted it. I NEEDED IT.

CHECK THIS OUT. How awesome is this colour?! Last week my boyfriend was once again dragged into Superdrug as I scoured the aisles looking for GOSH Holographic Hero.

Tiger Time!

August 24th, 2012 (No Comments)

When I first got my Bundle Monster stamping plates, I knew this was a manicure that I had to try. Big cats are my favourite animals (stay tuned for the leopard print) and the thought of sporting a cat-coat on my nails was definitely appealing. The Barry M Block Orange was really lovely to work […]

Golden Ibiza Glitter Gradient

August 22nd, 2012 (No Comments)

I’ve seen quite a few posts bobbing about on various blogs recently of glitter gradients and have been really keen on trying my own. The challenge here was to choose the colours I wanted to use without copying anything I had seen before… Ibiza mix by Models Own is a glitter I picked up a […]

Review: GOSH Holographic Hero

When I first heard about GOSH Holographic Hero nail polish, I’m not going to lie, I didn’t know what all the fuss was about as I hadn’t had the older version. Then I saw a photo. I was SOLD. Two weeks of daily Superdrug visits later and I was getting more and more frustrated. WHY […]
