NOTD: OPI Over the Taupe

9 Nov


I recently added this lacquer to my collection and I love it, such a warm, autumn shade! It is a creamy, mushroom shade, goes opaque with two coats and since I applied it on Monday (on my acrylics) it hasn’t chipped and still remains glossy even though I didn’t apply a base or top coat.

I got this for £3.99 at Fragrance Direct, there’s lots of shades to choose from and you can get yours here


Autumn nails

1 Nov

Autumn has well and truly arrived. Brown leaves are scattering the pavement, there’s a chill in the air and I’m digging my jumpers out of my wardrobe.

It’s also time to say goodbye to my bright summer nails and embrace the autumn colours. I’ve selected a few of my favourites that I’ll be wearing for the next few weeks.

Pay day treat

25 Oct

I was extremely happy when I checked my bank balance this morning and I’m sure I wasn’t the only one – payday has arrived!

I always like to treat myself as soon as I get paid, while my balance still looks healthy and before the harsh realisation that I have bills to pay kicks in.

I’ve been lusting after discounted products on www.fragrancedirect.co.uk for a few weeks now so this lunchtime, I placed my order and I thought I’d share with you what treats I’ve got coming my way.

A Minnie manicure

20 Jan

I have had my eye on OPI’s Vintage Minnie Minis set for months now. The girly pink and red lacquers, combined with my love for all things Disney meant that this collection was right up my street. Fortunately, my wonderful friend Steph surprised me with the set for Christmas and to say I loved it would be an understatement – I haven’t used another polish since.

The set features the RapiDry Top Coat and three shades; the deep red The Colour of Minnie, the gorgeous pale pink If You Moust You Moust and the red/dark pink glittery I’m All Ears.
