This is another post that's going to be picture heavy but this time it's all about polish!
I was looking on youtube earlier and saw this tutorial by Nihrida. Seeing as I already had a dark polish on I thought I'd give it a go! Nihrida's blog is one of my favourites to read and great for inspiration!
Here are the results -
I used Sinful Color's Secret Admirer for the base (see below for more about that), Sinful Color's Queen of Beauty as the glitter and BarryM's Silver at the nail bed.
I'm quite pleased with this. As you can see I messed up in a few places but overall I'm happy with the result so thank you Nihrida! I should try things out more often :)
As I said earlier I used Sinful Color's Secret Admirer as the base so here are some pictures of just that before I glittered it!
Isn't it gorgeous! It is another of the polishes that was in the birthday parcel from Niki and it may be one of my favourites...
It only needed 1 coat (1 COAT!!) and dried really fast compared to other Sinful Color's I've tried.
Lastly, I went to Ikea on Friday and bought some new storage for my nail polish and accessories. I was thinking about getting a Helmer like I've seen other people using but in the end I went with the Andy because it's more my style and my collection doesn't really justify a helmer at the moment!
I absolutely love it and I can just pull it round to wherever I'm doing my nails that day. Maybe one day I'll have enough polish to need another one.... ;)
Finally, I just cant resist adding a non polish related picture so here's a picture of the dress Maz bought me yesterday as an early birthday present. It's from Jane Norman and was love at first sight for me! I loved it so much that Maz had to get it for me :)
That's it for now. Hope you've all had a good weekend!
