Weekly Haul

Hey! I've had some laptop/SD problems recently so I've only just managed to get my pictures on my laptop, so I've have a bunch of posts lined up for the next few days! I thought I'd start off with the nail polishes I brought this week as I am SO EXCITED about all of them! I splurged a little but they were so worth it!

My first Orly polish! Orly Pure Porcelain, I love this colour so much! It's on my nails right now, tomorrow (when I'm less tired) I'm going to practice some dotting over it. 

How cute are these little bottles?! I love the colours and the pretty shimmers, they're also the first Essie polishes I've ever brought, whooop!! I have Meet Me At Sunset, Smooth Sailing, Braziliant and Super Bossa Nova.

And last but not least is Rimmel Disco Ball, it kind of reminds me of NYC Starry Silver, only all the glitter is the same size.

Well that's it for my haul this week, I'm looking forward to wearing them all! :)

Pink Wednesday

I ordered some nail polish online a few days and it came today and as I was so excited I decided to use a few of them for my Pink Wednesday mani. I used Orly Pure Porcelain and OMG I am so in love with this polish!! It's amazing! I also used Essie Super Bossa Nova, which is such an amazing pink! I love the shimmer to it! I used sellotape to make the pattern. 

With flash to see some of the shimmer.

Then for funsies I decided to add Barry M Pink Iridescent on top, but I didn't take a picture of it until I came back from the pub (my second home) when it was dark. Flash + Glitter = Pants. So you can't see the amazing blue and pink of the glitter. LAME!

I wanted something fun on my nails so I decided to whip out the fimo canes and this time I managed to not cut a chunk out of my finger, yay! The orange is Barry M Block Orange and the pink is Barry M Fuchsia.

After all the bright colours I've had on my nails recently I really needed something muted and not so in your face, so I went with 17 Forever. After a day I got a little bored so I thought I'd try out my new dotted tools and did some dots with Rimmel Aqua Cool.

After 3 days of this mani I need some colour back on my nails though!

Two Tone Blue

Last week the lovely Sonja from Happily Polished posted this purple mani which I LOVED and I just knew I had to do a mani like it. It's such a simple mani but I just love the effect. The darker blue is Barry M Cyan Blue and the lighter blue is Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream, which have to be 2 of my favourite blues!

I love how my nails are finally getting to a nice length! :D

Pink Wednesday, Yo

Really quick post. My nails look super gross, I really should have cleaned up better! The pink is Collection 2000 Siren, the white and black are Konad Special Nail Polish and the stamp is BM-223.

I'll upload a better picture tomorrow when I'm not under the influence of alcohol.

Birthday Presents and Weekly Haul

For my birthday my sister got me some nail goodies!

Yaaay! Pretty rhinestones! Can't wait to bling my nails out with these!

Dotting tools! No longer will I have to ruin bobby pins, haha. 

My mum baked me some super yummy chocolate and orange cupcakes for my birthday, with pink icing of course. 

Now here's the things I've brought this week:

Barry M Pink Iridescent and Collection 2000 Siren

I'm so excited about this! Look at that holo glitter!

I've been really good at not buying nail polish recently, these are the first I've brought in nearly a month! I'm very proud with myself.

Funky French

This is my mani from Monday. I saw this funky french on a blog (I don't remember the blog though sorry!) which I loved so I decided to copy it, she did pink and black though. The blue is Zoya Phoebe and the black is Barry M.

A Very Late Pink Wednesday

I've been such a bad blogger lately, can't believe I haven't posted in a week! I've missed blogging and reading blogs! My birthday was yesterday, I turned 20, so I've been celebrating that all week. I'm feeling very old right now! I have lots of nail posts planned for the next few days though, so I thought I'd start off with my Pink Wednesday nails.

I've seen these butterfly wing nails on a few blogs so I decided to give that a go. Base colour is Siren by Collection 2000, the black is Andrea Fulerton nail pen thing and the white was Konad Special Nail Polish.

Ladybird Nails

I thought I'd go for something cute and fun as I'm been on such a downer lately, so I decided why not ladybirds as I've been wanting to do them for a while! I think they look great, but the eyes creep me out so much! The base colour is Bourjois Rouge Escarpin, which is a really great one coater, then the white and black are Barry M.

Floral Pink Wednesday, So Fetch

I can't believe I haven't posted since Saturday, how lame is that! I've been ill and haven't had the energy to do my nails, but I'm feeling a bit better now, so I have my Pink Wednesday mani for you! It's another floral number, I love me some floral.

The base colour is Barry M Fuchsia, I never really use this polish as I don't really like the colour in the bottle, I've had it for over a year and used it like once, but now it's on my nail I actually love the colour, I'll definitely be using it more often. The pink I used for stamping is White and Red Konad Special Polish mixed together, clever or what! I used BM-221 and it has to be one of my favourite BM plates.

I'm currently really undecided on whether to have this mani matte or not. I have one hand matte and the other glossy and I just can't decide which I prefer! The pictures posted are both with the matte topcoat, I couldn't manage to take a picture of my other hand without the matte, damn my flash being uncooperative! So what do you think, shall I leave it matte or make it glossy?

Flower Power

This mani is a bit of a fail, but I'm going to post it anyway. I saw this really cute mani Sharon at Polish Infatuated posted and I fell in love with the flowers, I was wondering how to do it but luckily she linked a tutorial by Jessie at Jelly's Nails (both are really great blogs, you should check them out!) and so I decided to give the flowers a go. The base colour is Barry M Blue Moon and the flowers are Barry M Berry Ice Cream and Barry M Peach Melba.

I think this would have turned out better if I wasn't so heavy handed with the dots.
