A-England Lade of the Lake

Hi all,

A-England is one of my favourite independent nail polish brands because they produce such amazing polishes. Today I want to show you a polish that is apart of The Mythicals collection, Lade of the Lake. It's a stunning blue based dark purple with a very subtle holo.

More after the jump!

China Glaze Entourage and NYX Girl Enchanted Forest Mani

Hi all!

A quick post for today. Entourage was one of the first China Glaze polishes I bought and it is such a bright and gorgeous lime green with a slight shimmer, I topped this with a dabbed coat of NYX Girl Enchanted Forest and than a day later I put on a matte top coat. A word of warning, Entourage stains your nails like crazy! Double up on your base coat! I now have horrible yellow stained nails that I can't seem to remove :(

Triple Post: Cirque Fascination Street + makeup and outfit. *UPDATED*

Hi all!

OMG! Triple post! Nails, makeup and outfit! This is my complete outfit that I wore to go see Sleigh Bells on Saturday night. Now, I've never seen Sleigh Bells before, or even listened to their music, but the boyfie bought tickets for some reason a couple of months back and thought it would be interesting. We where both rather impressed, they put on a great stage show. I'll have a couple of instagram photos at the end. Now onto the fun stuff! Oh this post also contains my first circle lens review!

*Updated* New photos! 2 coats, no top coat.

Illamasqua Nomad and Pretty&Polished Valentino

Hi all!

You may recognise the title of today's blog post. It's very similar to my very first nail post on this blog! I was browsing through some of my favourite blogs the other week and saw a swatch for Nomad, a gorgeous jade green and I realised that I had never worn it and that I needed to remedy that straight away!

Cirque Polish and Hellebore Glitter Gradient Mani!

Hi all!

I feel a little guilty, I've bought 4 bottle's of polish in the last week and a half. Haha seems my polish obsession is back full swing now that my nails are growing to decent lengths and don't look horrid anymore!

I bring you the brand Cirque, a independent brand out of New York and they smell amazing! No, I haven't lost my mind from huffing nail polish, she infuses lavender and clary sage essential oils into the nail polish that leaves a lovely subtle smell!

Illamasqua Viridian

Hi all!

A quick post for today as I wanted to get this swatch out whilst the Illamasqua Glitterati/Viridian duo is still current. If you have any concerns about Viridian not being a gorgeous polish, then you don't need to worry. It is a gorgeous peacock green with slight shimmer that just glows when the sun hits it.
