A Little Update.

Hello everyone,

No nails today I'm afraid, just an update to inform you that I may be a little absent from blogging for a few weeks. But I will be back as soon as I can.

My schedule has gone a bit crazy lately - I am working A LOT. I work a lot of late shifts too which  means I don't have much time in the morning to do anything, but when I get home all I wanna do is sleep!

The main thing that is taking my time however is that I am moving out in the next couple of weeks, so most of my spare time is going into getting organised for that. I currently live with my parents but me and my boyfriend are getting a flat together, which is all very exciting - but a lot of hard work. I can't wait til the move is all sorted and I can put my time into my nails again (my nails are suffering badly, they haven't been this neglected for ages!)

I just thought I would post this so people know I haven't disappeared and that I am still going to be blogging as much as I can. But posts will very few and far between for a while. I hope you all understand!

Hello everyone. I have been sooo busy the last week with work and trying to find a flat, my nails have been plain all week! But I finally have a day off so hopefully I will be able to squeeze some nail art in today. But for now I shall show you what I was wearing last week; Cirque - Book Of Shadows.

Pretty Purples

Hello, I hope everyone is having a good day. Today is my only day off this week so I have been relaxing this morning but I am viewing a flat later - very excited!

Today I have some nail art to show you. I recently bought a bottle of OPI - You're Such A Budapest and I just had to use it. I am quite pleased with how this design turned out, but I think I could have done the triangle half moons a bit neater. But I will work on that next time I do something similar.

Random Swatch: Ciate - Strawberry Milkshake

Good evening, I hope everyone has had a good day. Mine was okay, I had work but I have a day off tomorrow which I am looking forward to.

Tonight I have another swatch to show you which is Ciate - Strawberry Milkshake. This is a super girly, light pink creme and its a very pretty colour. I got this in one of Ciate's Caviar Manicure sets which I was not really a fan of - I tried it once when I was going out for a meal and most of the beads had fallen off by the time I went out! Then I think I ended up eating a few of them that fell in my dinner and the rest ended up on the floor of my boyfriend's car (he wasn't best pleased haha). But I thought the polish was quite pretty so I kept it to use on its own.

For the photo I used 3 coats as I found the formula a little streaky, but it evened out quite nicely after the third coat. I didn't use a topcoat for this photo.

 I felt like barbie wearing this polish, which is totally not my usual style, but I actually really liked it. The bottle is also really cute, although I had to rip the bow off because I kept dragging it through my wet polish when painting my nails which was very annoying. I don't know if I am the only one who has done this?

I do rather like this polish, despite a slight issue with the formula. It is the only Ciate polish I own but I would definitely try more of their products in the future.

Gold & Blue Hex Nails.

Its the weekend!! Plus I am not working this weekend which makes me very happy :).

Today I have my new Hex Nail Jewellery to show you. To any of you who find swearing offensive you may not want to read on in this post, as my nail jewellery is a bit rude and I would hate to offend anyone. But if you are cool with that kind of thing please read on.

I have seen a lot of other posts about Hex and when I saw them I just knew I had to try them. I wasn't disappointed with them either, they are the perfect way to jazz up your nails and they are so easy to apply and use. I didn't find they caught on things much and fitted to the nail quite nicely as they are slightly curved. I just stuck mine on with top coat and they lasted me 3 days, but I think if you used nail glue then they would last much longer. Onto the photos....
