NOTW NYC Raindrops!

Although the weather might not agree it’s technically springtime and as always the pastel colours tend to make a return for spring. I’m not big on pastel clothes, they tend to wash me out but I’m happy to wear any colour on my nails. I spied this lovely baby blue on the NYC counter and sure for €1.89, where would you be going! This is lasting really well for such a cheap polish it’s been two days and only one minor chip. I also bought a minty green pastel which I’m looking forward to trying. If pastels are your thing there are some lovely ones in the range so check them out!

NOTW – Snowman Nails!

Another Christmassy Nail of the Week! I am gradually branching out with my nail art and trying to so something a bit more complex than dots. I thought how hard can a snowman be, turns out it’s not as straightforward as you might think. I painted the snowman on with the brush and added the details with the nail art pen. The orange polish is by NYC in Spring Street and the white China Glaze polish is Dandy Lyin Around (?). It’s definitely not perfect but it’s a start! What do you think?

I had a bout of insomnia last night and saw The Nail Affair and Belle Beauty Glam chatting about this on twitter, so I thought It’d take part!

NYC Applelicious Lip Balm

I am such a sucker for ridiculously cute things. So when I saw this little lip balm from NYC I immediately thought ‘ahhhh would you look at that, a little apple in the middle’. I couldn’t resist the cuteness so I picked it up. But in fairness it was only €1.50!

Summer Nails – Crazy for Coral Nails!

Crazy for Coral!

Crazy for Coral!

I recently did a big clear out of my nail varnish bag – I didn’t throw anything out by the way – I clearly have a hoarding problem, it was more of a nail varnish review really :) Turns out I have eight coral nail varnishes, not including the one I have twice unknown to myself. Coral is one of my favourite nail colours for summer, punchy and bright.

So I thought I’d show you my coral collection and you might see something you like, apologies for the childlike nail painting, I for some reason painted them in the darkest corner in the apartment and then took the photos in daylight, rookie mistake!
