Boots 17 Peacock

Hello Everybody!

I woke up this morning with the migraine from hell. I thought my head was going to explode and would probably have been quite grateful if it had. I get migraine's quite a lot but this one was a real humdinger! I burrowed under my duvet and managed to sleep most of the day so I feel a lot better now thank goodness.

Anyway, moan over :)

This is Boots 17 in Peacock -

For some reason I only took 2 pictures... I don't know why and I could have sworn I took more but I can't find them anywhere.

It's a gorgeous colour though in my opinion. Went on well and this is 2 coats, no topcoat.

Boots is probably the biggest drugstore here and where I get a lot of my nail polish and makeup. They sell lots of brands but also do 2 of their own - 17 (quite cheap) and No7 (more expensive). Both of them are pretty good as far as I've used them!

Tomorrow (Fri) I am going to my sister's to house/dog/cat/rabbit/sheep/chicken sit (probably a few other animals as well!) for the weekend. Luckily for me she is taking my 5 gorgeous nephews with her ;) I love them but FIVE!! Oldest is just 9 and youngest is 1 and a bit. It's ok when Maz is with me but me on my own? They'd run rings round me. My brother's wife is pregnant at the moment and she's having a boy too... looks like it's down to me to even things up!

I'm taking my laptop with me but they live in the middle of nowhere so I'm not hopeful for good coverage to get me online.

I am taking all my nail stuff with me so that I can do some swatching whilst I'm there....just in case I'm bored!

That's enough of my gabbling. Hope everyone is having a good day!

Oh and I've decided I use exclamation points too much. I'm cutting down.

I am boring myself now. If I have to type "I have this in my untrieds" I am sure we are all going to scream!

I love it though and you are always giving me the KUTA to try things out!

Selina said...

Oooh SNAP! A friend who lives in the UK sent me a care parcel of polishes and this was one of them. I haven't tried it yet, but seeing it on you I'm going to very soon, it's gorgeous. I LOVED Boots when we were in England in 2007 and can't wait to go there again when we're over next year.

You can come dog/cat/rabbit/rat/mice-sit for me any time! Obviously you'd have to get to New Zealand first!

Pam said...

I hate you had a migraine, I get them too so I know how bad they make you feel, lots of people don't realize.

This color is gorgeous and fits you so well ! It reminds me a lot of Rimmel Green with Envy - I just love these shades.

Hope you're feeling better and that you had a fun weekend with your sister :-)

Love this shade on you. I think I have something like it in another brand. It is gorgeous. Have you ever seen the mystery series Blue Murder? It's an old one. I just watched the first few episodes. My girlfriend got it from the library. She's going to ask them to order the rest of the series. The actress was in another series, The Magician I believe it was. She helped solve crime with her partner who was a magician. I loved that series? Makes me so aggravated that BBC America doesn't have any mysteries on anymore. Right now I'm watching the series Being Human. Love that one! Vampire, ghost and werewolf, have you seen this? Too much reality crap.

Thanks for the lovely comments everyone! It is a lovely colour and thanks for the well wishes after my migraine!

Helen - I'm jealous of your untrieds ;) I wish I had a big box of untrieds but the max I ever have is about 5!!

Selina - New Zealand is very high on my list of places to visit! I would love to come there. Might have to cut down on np in order to afford it though ;)
Boots is great but what I'd really love to have is Sephora or Ulta! I hear so much about them and I think I'd be in heaven!

Pam - yeah, people who have never had a migraine tend to think they're just bad headaches. If only hey!!

Lucy - I've never watched Blue Murder I don't think... I seem to remember it was Caroline Quentin in it though and she was also in Jonathan Creek which I loved!! I don't know why I didn't watch Blue Murder though.. it seems like the sort of thing I'd like. I'd watch murder mysteries all the time if I could :)
Being Human - oh I loved it! It's one of the best new series I've watched this year. I can't wait for the 2nd series!
Can't believe they don't show mysteries anymore? That's strange considering they're probably the most popular programmes here! I don't watch that much reality stuff but I do love Strictly Come Dancing :)
