Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear Red Carpet and some gabbling!


This may be quite a long post as I feel I have a lot to talk about :)

I will start by showing you what I'm wearing on my nails at the moment -

This is one of the nail polishes that I got in a package from MagicXMaid (more about that later!) and people who have been reading my blog for a while now will know that's it's very unusual for me to wear red on my nails but I absolutely love this red! I usually put reds on and take them straight off again as I don't think they suit me but I think this one looks good. Of course it helps that it's chock full of glitter!

I put it on last night in a rush before going out for dinner and I figured this one would dry quite fast and it did! I probably would have put another coat on if I'd had time but I think this looks fine as it is!

Maz loves this as well. It's one of the few he noticed without me having to give him a prod and shove my nails in his face ;)

So what do you guys think? Does red suit me?! I actually wear a lot of red clothes wise so I don't know why I don't wear it on my nails more... perhaps I've been choosing the wrong shades!

Don't forget to click on the pictures for a clearer view!

So as I mentioned earlier I received a package from MagicXMaid that she sent me for my birthday (I know, it's not my birthday until next week but there was no way on earth I was waiting to open it!). I can honestly say that I think it's the BEST package I've ever received in the post! I was so excited I could barely wait to get home to open it and then when I did I was jumping round like an idiot!! Lets just say that I'm not going to run out of new polishes to swatch for a while!!

Here's an overview of what was in the package but I will be doing a proper post on it later :)

Plus a picture of Barnaby having a look to check that he approves of the colour choices -

Thank you SO much Niki, I absolutely loved the parcel and can't believe you got me so much :)

Speaking of my birthday, it's only a week away now! Still can't believe I'm going to be 30. I am going back to my hometown for the weekend but I don't have much idea what I'll be doing as Maz has organised it all and is keeping it a secret... The one thing I do know is that I will be going out in town with a few friends on the night of my actual birthday (12th). You guys are all invited of course ;) How cool would that be!! The only thing that could make my birthday better is if one of best of mates could be there but she lives in Australia now so no chance!

In other news Maz and I are moving! We finally found a house we like in an area that we like! It's taken a long time. We found out yesterday that we'd got it thus the impromptu going out for dinner and having to put np on in a rush! We had to celebrate :) Fingers crossed we will be moving beginning of October. I don't have many pictures of the place and they're all teeny tiny but here's a picture of the garden -


Seeing as I'm already picture heavy in this post, here's a picture of 5 of my nephews, just because I think they're cute :)

I think that's it... I feel like I've forgotten something but I can always do another post!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't already and also don't forget to sign up to MagicXMaid's Christmas Exchange if you haven't done that either!

Thanks to everyone whose already entered my giveaway! Really happy with the response I've had.

Oh and one last picture - some Barnaby love :)

Barnaby is getting so big! Adorable. And I love that red.

Nicole said...

Well, I think it looks fantastic on you, of course! It's red with glitter, you have to love that. Haha. There's quite a bit of reds out there that I think would suit you perfectly! Can't wait to see you pick out one on your own :) Haha! You're totally welcome, it was super fun to shop for you.
The garden looks completely LOVELY. I cannot wait to see more pics! Congratulations and of course, Happy BIRTHDAY!

What a cuuuuute kitty!

Glittermillie's Nails and Sparkle said...

Thanks everyone for saying the red suits me :) I'm definitely going to try some more reds!

Also thank you for all the well wishes with the house and happy birthdays!

Halifax - yeah, Barnaby is obsessed with my nail polishes and makeup! He's always playing with them and if I leave something out I end up hunting around for it for ages due to him pawing it somewhere!

Mary - thanks, we're so excited about the move. Hopefully it'll be somewhere to settle for a while :)

Lucy - I don't know why I don't wear red polish?! I think I must have tried a really bad one at some point and been put off ever since!
