Urban Outfitters Allsorts

Howdy peeps, hope you're having a great day? I've spent this evening sweating it at the gym - got to get into my dress lol:)

So, today I have a real treat - Allsorts, a pinky/clear polish with neon pink, orange, white and purple glitter jammed packed into it - I've never had so many compliments as I have when wearing this. In fairness, you can't really miss this polish!

Bottle shop - ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh, soooooo shiny:) 

This wasn't the easiest to apply - it needed some dabbing which did result in some bubbles, but I'm complaining because I love this polish so much. Swoon. If I wasn't marrying my lovely fiance I'd marry this polish!

O.P.I Muppets World Tour

Eeeeeeeep - I've finally decided on my wedding nails:)

I've ummed and ahhhhhed for ages over what to do. I knew a 'classic' French manicure was out and that any complex nail art would be a no-no (not because of any artistic objections, but I'll have minimal time the night before). I've purchased various blues (as my something blue) but then decided it stood out too much. I did the same with pinks, but still..........nothing was really grabbing me.

But the blogging world was round the corner, ready to inspire me; after weeks of checking various swatches, I decided to order the two following polishes from Beauty Bay, Muppets World Tour and Step Right Up, both by O.P.I.

Now, these are not the best piccies - I was in a rush, trying to snap them before I got glue all over them (my crafting currently involved gallons of glue:) but I hope you like;


Step Right Up is a gorgeous pink, very sheer, this is 4 coats. It makes my nails look lovely and healthy (instead of wretched and yellow like they are IRL).

Muppets World Tour is a clear base packed with minute pieces of silver glitter, alongside larger gold and blue hexes. It's ideal - mainly silver (to go with my accessories), has blue in it (my something blue) and is subtle enough to not take centre stage but awesome enough to make my nails feel 'me' on the day.


That's another thing of the wedding planning list:)

Nicole O.P.I - Be Awesome

Never has a polish's name been so apt - behold, awesomeness in a bottle..............



You might be able to see the bubbles on my pinkie - for that one I tried simply painting this polish on, which quite frankly just didn't work. So in the end I used a cocktail stick to place these on individually (I had work to do, it was the perfect procrastination device!) It took a while but it was worth it!

I'll definitely be trying this over some other colours - this is over Grey Matter by Rimmel - I think black or white would look stunning with this.

Haul! Glitter! General Awesomeness!

Wow - I'm a sucky blogger. Over 2 months since my last post. I could give you my standard excuse (I don't have time), but I do also have to be honest; I slightly lost my polish mojo. I even (whisper it!) started wearing a polish for a week or more. Gasp! But my passion is beginning to return, and I have a rare spare evening, so here I am.

Now, as most of you know, I'm getting married soon. But now it's really soon. Less than 3 weeks! I have used this upcoming joyous day to.......but LOTS of polish, wooohoooo!

Here's my most recent haul;

Starting at the top; O.P.I - Muppets World Tour, Step Right Up, In True Stefani Fashion, Urban Outfitters Allsorts, Nicole O.P.I Be Awesome, Barry M Marshmallow, Maybelline Blackout, Boots Daisy Darling and Paradise Love.

I've also been treating myself to a few other bits and pieces from an amazing place called Sugar and Vice, who make customizable lazer-cut jewellery - yay! 

Swatches will follow soon peeps............:)
