That Versatile Thing Called Glitter

Lately I've been loving white nails! They are so plain, simple, and such a statement!

As promised here are the pictures of my 2 new glitter polishes layered over white and purple polish. Just a reminder here are the polishes:

(Left - Sassy Sparkle and Right - Jewel Tone)

L.A Colours - Sassy Sparkle layered over N.Y.C - Little Italy

Revlon - Plum Night

 L.A Colours - Jewel Tone layered over Revlon - Plum Night

Both colours are awesome! The purple nails look like nail foils and look 10 times better in real life. For 99p I will go as far as to say this is my best polish purchase to date!!!

Anyone been buying any nice glitter nail polishes lately? I've heard W7 have come out with a really cool range of glitter polishes similar to Nails Inc Sprinkles Collection. I am on the hunt to find them!

Messabout Nails

When I get bored I tend to randomly paint my nails making up nail designs as I go along. I usually take a picture to send to my friend to see what she thinks of the designs. I guess it's kind of random that I do that. Suppose it's the same as trying on outfits playing "dress up" before actually wearing the outfit out properly - Right?

By the way, does anyone know a cheapish nail polish brand that do a matte top coat?

Thursday Throwback

A little throwback nail art from a while ago that I found on my phone! Picture quality is very poor,  but you can still see the gist of the design - Cosmic/Galaxy Nails! Pretty decent for my first attempt. Will defo look to recreate this look, and post clearer photos of course!

P.S - The lovely Sandi at Pushing Polish nominated me for an award - how sweet! She has a nail blog also, and some of her designs and nail polishes she uses are just awesome! You know them nail polishes that are just heaven in bottle? Yep she has them! Check her blog out here .

Bye for now!

Long overdue UPDATE!

Evening Fellow Bloggers!

I have finally finished Uni for Summer, so thought I better had show my blog some much needed TLC. Here are my current nails I am rocking - ocean inspired.

Seeing as I haven't blogged in over a month ( mad apologies) here are some other styles I have been sporting:

Simple Glitter Layering

As you can see I took the photo of these nails like a week and a half after painting them, hence the small chips and outgrown polish. The nail polish lasted a good while before showing any signs of wear and tear which I was super pleased with.

Bare Nails

"Naked" nails eurghhhh! For a while I actually went without any coloured nail polish. It was nearing the end of the term and uni was getting a bit hectic, so I did not have time to spare decorating my nails. I did coat them with nail hardener though :)

Pink Friday

Picked up this lovely pink nail polish in my favourite shop in the whole wide world - POUNDWORLD! The photo does not do the colour much justice, but it is a really nice pink colour and I can't stop wearing it. I have also tried layering glitter over the top of it, and I love it even more - it is so Barbie!

I picked up 2 new nail polishes from the local Pharmacy which were only 99p each - Thanks Emily for the heads up! Here they are:

I have already tried the 2 polishes layered over some colours and they look fab. The clear glitter literally jazzes up any nail polish colour, and the blue/purple glitter looks the bomb layered over dark purple polish. I will be sure to update you guys soon.

Slowly coming to the conclusion my blog is becoming a tad boring?

Until next time. Adios!
