Simple Nails & a Trip to Liverpool

Apologies for being so out of touch with the blogging world. Firstly, I would like to apologise for that as I've been a bit busy and of course a bit lazy too - my bad! Secondly, I would like to thank My Obsession, Grow in Fashion, The Urban Pod, and Fabugloss for all nominating me for blogger awards! Again, really overwhelmed and quite surprised that people actually enjoy reading my waffle. Really does mean a lot to me so thank you again girls, and I hope you will all take your time to have a little gander at their blogs.

Now on to the nails:

I am really into this bluey/greeney/pastel colour that is trending at the moment, so couldn't resist picking up this Rimmel polish the other day in Boots: Rimmel I Love Lasting Finish - Misty Jade. It is kind of similar to another Rimmel polish I have: Rimmel Lycra Pro - Peppermint, however this colour is more blue and Misty Jade is more green. The accent colour is my American Apparel: Nail Lacquer - Rose Bowl that I picked up for a quid a while back. It's a really nice peachy/pink colour, and the consistency is great!

I was a bit naughty and took these photo's of my nails like days after I painted them, hence the small chips,and outgrowing spaces. I am in love with the colour of Misty Jade, however the formula is not so great. It is very thin I had to apply 3 coats of polish to get opacity, not to mention it does apply a bit streaky.

I spent the last 2 days in Liverpool doing some good old shopping which was amazing! Really loved it up there and I hope to return again soon when I have more time to shop and sight see. Here are a few (crappy) camera phone photos I managed to take whilst I was there:

After a long day shopping I headed back home to have a night out with my uni mates. I was really tired and it was tipping down with rain, but I enjoyed having a catch up and a boogie with the girls.

I will show you all my goodies I purchased in Liverpool in my next post so stay tuned!
