Hey folks, so I have a really long weekend this week, starting today hehe! 
So today I have a simple layering combo I wore a while ago. It started off with 2 coats of the lovely Spa Ritual Circle of Life and then I topped it off with one coat of Essence Glisten Up, which is totally gorgeous and unfortunately discontinued, I do have a spare one though if anyone is looking for one! Glisten Up has gorgeous green/blue shimmer, silver glitter and gorgeous small blue/green flakies. I topped everything off with one coat of NYC Turbo Dry topcoat. 

This was super gorgeous and I loved it so much!

Hi all my friends, today I have a nice nail polish which turned out to be a big disappointment. I saw this in the poundshop and it had a gorgeous duochrome to it and it looked so awesome in the bottle and it was only £1 so I bought it but when I tried it it fell flat like I couldn't see any duochrome at all and it was just a nice black nail polish with green flecks in it! 

So that's all for this post, hopefully I'll see you tomorrow :)

Hey guys, hope you had a good weekend :) So I wasn't going to do any Halloween nail art this year but then the other day I saw this cute tutorial by One Nail To Rule Them All so decided to try it out for myself but instead of doing these at the tips of the nails I did them as half moons. 
I used two coats of Gosh High School Flirt and then used Essence Flashy Pumpkin to paint on the orange half moons and then I used Butter London Silly Billy to draw on the lighter orange lines on the pumpkin which are kinda hard to see! I then used green and brown acrylic paint for the rest of the details. I applied one coat of Essence Better Than Gel Topcoat which smudged the design :( 

Ok, so that's all, I think it's more cute than scary lol! Have you tried out Pumpkin nail art?

Hey guys, how are you all? I'm really tired today, I had an 8am start at uni today which meant I had to get up at 5am, then when I finished at uni I had to go to work and now I'm really tired, I think I'm going to go to bed!

Oh and just for a bit of randomness, how many of you like the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte? I tried it for the first time today and I think it's horrible! The first few sips were ok but then it was just making me feel really sick, I know loads of people love it so am I just weird or is there anyone else out there who feels the same way? 

Ok so enough of that, let's talk nails. I know it's freezing outside and summer said it's bye byes but this mani is an eye searingly bright neon sunset gradient using the Color Club Poptastic collection. 
I used Almost Famous (yellow), Wham! Pow! (orange) and Warhol (pink) and a makeup sponge. These nails were really bright and unfortunately my camera blended the orange and pink together so you can't really see the pink at the tips in the pictures but trust me it's there and you can see it in real life! 
I added Tonight's Gonna Be A Good Night by Wet n Wild over the top! 

Ok, so that's enough for today I'll see you all later :)

Hi guys, hope your all having a lovely week, sorry I haven't posted this sooner but I had loads of work keeping me busy but I've got most of it done now and I'm going for a nice meal with my family tonight too so overall I'm in a good mood :)
When I received a lovely package of Shimmer Polishes from Cindy I looked at Katherine and thought 'hmm, yeah a brown glitter, ok' I'm not a fan of brown nail polish and this just didn't really do it for me but then when I paired it up with Illamasqua Faux Pas, wow, I fell in love! I did two coats of Faux Pas and used Shimmer Katherine to do a glitter gradient on the nails and then applied one coat on the whole nail for my accent nail. 

What do you think of brown nail polish?

Ok so first up is Shimmer Jennifer which I've layered over Color Club Pucci Licious

Up next is Nichole which is a very patriotic mix of red, silver and blue glitter. I've applied one coat of Color Club Wild Cactus (which I love)

Thirdly I have Sarah which is a beautiful blend of colours, I can't remember what I layered this over but I think it may be Kiko 341

The last one today is Jasmine which I've layered over w7 Midnight Express.

Hi everyone, hope your all ok, I have the day off tomorrow so I don't have to go to sleep early ;) hehe! 
Anyways so I decided to do some nails for Breast Cancer Awareness this month and was inspired by a mani I saw on instagram by @I_heart_nailart. This was on my to do list for a long time so I'm glad I finally did it!
I started off with 2 coats of Revlon Popular (which I got from the poundshop yaay!) and then used black acrylic paint for the heart outline and boom done!

My hearts are really crooked and wonky here but hey to the untrained eye it's fine ;)

illamasqua paranormal quad

Hi guys, Mondays are tough aren't they? Anyway thankfully it's over and so now I can show you some nails :) 
For these nails I used OPI San Tan Tonio as a nude base and then with striping tape and Illamasqua Omen and Seance (from the Paranormal collection) and made these quad nails. 
They aren't perfect but I quite like them, I love these Illamasqua polishes, they're so gorgeous but Seance is not as pink as it appears in the picture. 


Not my best ever work but still I quite liked the simplicity of it! Do you like quad nails?

Hi guys, I'm sorry I've not really been posting as frequently recently, I haven't said anything but I started university last month! I don't share a lot of personal details publicly on my blog for various reasons which is why I've kept quite, but anyway that's what's been taking up a lot of my time recently and also I have to keep my nails short and I can't have them polished for when I go on clinics which is why I haven't painted my nails in a while! Can you guess what I'm studying? (hint: you need to be good with your hands!) 
Anyway a great thing about my uni is that everything is so close by and so going to T K Maxx is no longer a separate trip out, anyway last time I was there I didn't intend to buy anything but I ended up leaving with the new Color Club Fall duo set which included this gorgeous flakie polish and East Austin. 
I applied 2 coats, a third coat would have deepened the colour but I was happy with the way it looked at 2 so I left it there and applied one coat of topcoat. 

It's so gorgeous I highly recommend that if you see this do not hesitate to buy it ! I got loads of compliments on my nails when I wore this and I'm sure you will too :) 
Have you bought this yet?
