Illamasqua 'Muse'

Hi all!

Oh no! What happened to my nails!! Well, my nail broke on my ring finger on my right hand, a clean break right across the free edge, and I thought to myself I might try out short nails for a while. I've had it in the back of my head for the past couple weeks that I should take my acrylics off and give a really good attempt at trying to get them strong. I have always had horrible weak, thin, bendy nails that are extremely prone to tearing and spliting, and every couple of months my thumb nails manage to tear about half way down my nail, fun, that's why I have the acrylics. Anyway, I'm getting side tracked.

I present to you, Illamasqua 'Muse'. The polish that started it all! I bought this gorgeous polish after seeing it on Temptalia's blog back just before Christmas and purchased it because it matched the dress I was wearing for NYE. I loved it so much that my boyfriend, being the amazing man he is, bought me 8 more Illamasqua polishes and 4 eyeshadows for my Christmas present <3

More photos and my recent purchases after the jump!

Look at my tiny little nails!! Ahhhh I had forgotten how small my nails actually are T_T I am already in mourning for my long nails.

2 perfect coats of Illamasqua 'Muse' with a holographic glitter sponged onto the tips and 1 coat Seche Vite QD.

My nails look a bit wonky because I still have the acrylic that's left on the tips of my nails after shortening them, but none at my cuticle. Still making up my mind whether to take it all off..

Now my recent purchases. I picked up a-England 'Lady of the Lake' and You 15 from a blog sale over at Kelly's Kolors for next to nothing. I used You 15 for the tips of my Muse mani.

And because I have nooooo self control what so ever, I found Revlon 'Scandalous' aka 'Facets of Fuchsia' and I HAD to have it.

If I do decide to try and take care of my nails, I'm going to have to find something else to blog about other than just pretty nails! May actually have to take photos of my makeup in the mornings to post.. Will think of something.

Until next time!


  1. Awwww. I am sorry for the loss of your nails. I have had a loss yesterday too. :( I still think your nails are beautiful. :)

    1. Oh I'm so sorry to hear that, I hope things are okay -big hugs-.

  2. So sorry to hear of your loss. I bow my head in a moment of silence.... BUT YOUR NAILS ARE STILL GORGEOUS!! Love them. And I love that color you are wearing. :-)
    Yay!! Makeup looks? Awesome idea!! Also love love love that photo "spam" you did of your outfits. If you aren't a model, you should be. I may have even commented that before on that post- so this might be the 2nd time. Or first. Ah I can't remember anymore thanks to...vodka. :-)

    1. Hehe they are still partly fake! The tips still had acrylic on them up until last night, I had to take it all off. I am now all natural nails, omg I hate it haha my nails are so thin, eep!

      I really should take more photos of my makeup, but I'm so disorganised in the mornings to get time. I should get up earlier. You liked the outfit spam? Awesome, I will do it again sometime soon :) I could just do little instagram outfit posts, that would be nice and easy :)

    2. No one wants to wake up earlier. Blech. That would be dedication to your blog.
