Due to it been exam season I have not been spending as much time painting my nails with glitter or even doing nail art but today when searching through pictures to use on my blog I noticed that I has not shared this look that I did apologizes that the nail vanish is slightly chipped as the photo was taken a few days after I have done this.
I have used Essie Sensitivity Base Coat which I find is the best base coat I have used to date. Feelunique see this and it can be purchased for £8.55 here. I think I paid around £3 for mine at The Original Factory Store so it may be worth checking in there. I know I say the same ever time but you really do need to own this. I am gutted because I have managed to lose mine.
For the white I used Sally Hanson Hard as Nails in White Tip I think it’s shade 07 but I could be wrong. I have put two coats of this on so that it was completely opaque. This colour is usually used for french nails but I want to get some more use out of mine so this is why I used it. I am unsure where I purchased my bottle of this polish but you can get it here for £1.95 plus p+p. This polish lasted around 5/6 days without chipping which is something which is always a benefit.
I used a dotting tool to do the spots I purchased mine off eBay a year or so ago but the seller now doesn’t stock them but I have found the same ones on Amazon here. I have had no problems using mine it was the green one I used for my dots and it was the larger of the dots if this makes sense.
For the black dots that I have done I used a Basic Claire’s Accessories nail polish I have had this polish for years so I am unsure if you can still purchase this in the stores now but you can get it online here. This polish lasted around 2/3 days which is not bad as I must have had it open around 3/4 years when I was an emo girl you could say. The formulae may have changed over this time so it may be better now than mine
Finally to seal my nail varnish I used Sally Hanson Hard As Nails which is the best top coat that I have used that is clear. I did pick this bottle that I am using up in The Original Factory Store for £3. You can purchase this from Boots here.
What are your favourite nail art designs and who knows they could end up been featured on this blog pretty soon.
Sorry for the long gap between posts but I have been revising for an exam roll on a week on Friday when I say bye bye A Level Geography. As a bit of a treat to myself for revising I decided that I would purchase this mini set of OPI because there is nothing more I like than painting my nails to relax.
The colour which is on the right is The colour of Minnie. Opi says you had this little mouse at “red”. Which is the most perfect red colour you could wear this easily with some glitter over the top or even on it’s own this would look amazing on a first date maybe with a little black dress as well. I don’t think I will repurchase this because of the fact that I have a massive stash of plain red colours.
The colour in a middle is I’m all ears. Opi says tell me how much you love this magenta shimmer. The shimmer in this nail polish makes me love it even more because I think that it would look amazing with a tan which is something that I would love to get this summer. This is such a summer shade which I think that would love ever skin tone. I love this colour so much so I may have to think about purchasing the whole bottle if it looks nice on my nails.
The colour on the end is If you moust you moust. Opi says you gotta pink what you gotta pink. This is one of the most amazing baby pink colours that I have owned. I would love use a white colour to make lines and then this would make it even more perfect so this is something else which you may see coming on the blog soon. I am more than likely to repurchase this colour.
The other nail polish that you get is RapiDry topcoat.Opi says non-yellowing ,end smear, smudges and streaks. I haven’t used this yet but I think I will do when I paint my nails next time. I have only ever heard amazing things about this topcoat so I hope it is as good as people say. I am may purchase this if it is a good topcoat.
What OPI Polishes would you recommend me purchasing?
Love is in the air!
Personal shopper Annie Valentine has a dream job in the heart of fabulous Manhattan.
Daughter Lana is lost in the heat of first love, but has she fallen for a heart-breaker?
In London husband Ed faces a scandal at work and knows, in his heart, he needs Annie back.
What’s a girl to do when her true love is in London but her new love is New York?
Does it have to be fashion or family, or can Annie Valentine have it all
Annie Valentine is in a bit of a mess when we first meet her, she is a super busy mum of four and her fashion TV career is in jeopardy. When the offer comes for Annie to work in New York for a few weeks with her eldest daughter Lana, she jumps at the chance of getting away from it all.
Annie and Lana completely fall in love with New York they are there to help set up a new fashion label, so they are soon thrown in to the glamorous world of Fifth Avenue and cocktails at lunchtime. However all is not well in London, Anna’s husband Ed is facing accusations at work and needs his wife’s support more than ever. But Anna is torn she doesn’t want to be apart from her family but she does not want to leave New York either.
I really didn’t take to the character of Annie Valentine until the very end of the book. I felt that she was really selfish bu dropping everything including four members of her family so she could go to New York. However, I did enjoy reading about the relationship that develops between Annie and her daughter Lana while they are away.One of my favourite parts of this book were the descriptions of New York Carmen Reid describes the exciting and vibrant city so well that it becomes easy to understand why Annie is so in love with it.New York Valentine is a bit different to most chick lit it isn’t about a single woman searching for love but more about family and the important role it plays in our lives.
I would recommend this book if you have read the one before I hadn’t and this is why I think it took me so long to finish the book.
