Sparkle blindness and Christmassy preparations:)

A very happy December to you all peeps! I hope you've had a lovely week; I, sadly, have been poorly all week with an evil cold, hence my silence. Grrrrrrr! I've Lemsip-ed and hot water bottled myself to death, but still feeling grotty. Ah well, my illness induced hibernation has given me an excuse to cheer myself up with some serious sparkle.

Sunglasses at the ready! (Warning - pic heavy!)

A month or so ago I picked up a couple of  polishes from the Models Own Wonderland collection, Northern Lights and Southern Lights. They are unbelievably sparkly! 

Firstly, Southern Lights; a pale lilac polish packed (aaaaaah alliteration!) with very fine holographic and lilac glitter. This is 3 coats of polish, layered over an coat of lilac polish (forget which) and topped with 2 coats of topcoat (needed to make the most of that glittery goodness). 

Next up, Northern Lights, same as above but pink! Flipping brill. I didn't layer this over another colour, but tbh it clearly didn't need it. 

I can't describe how much I love these polishes - the holographic glitter is so beautiful and really does make me think of the changing lights and shades of the Northern Lights (geographical phenomena, not polish). However, I started getting greedy for more and more polish, and couldn't resist gilding the lily even further....

Well hellooooo Barry M Rose Quartz sparkly you are! I'm not sure if this was a step too far, but still; glitter + glitter = AMAZINGNESS! And possibly glitter induced blindness. 

 Heh heh heh:) 

P.s - getting ready for Chrimbo now, cracked open some lights and a few simple decorations. Only 23 days left to go:) 


  1. lol - yep, I did that too. I actually couldn't stop staring at my nails; when cooking, when working, when driving - I'm lucky to be alive!
