I'll try and make this a relatively quick post, as to be honest, I should be doing other things. Like getting dinner ready and having a tidy up.
Oh well, nails come first for me haha!!
Here is what I have been up to last week:
OPI's Planks A Lot. Love this polish! LOVE!!
Look at it's shiny grilac-ey-ness! Yes, we have already established that grilac is a word. It's a grey lilac, doncha know?!
Ah, this is nail porn. Even as I type this, I can't stop looking at it's loveliness!
I know, you're glad I shared. You're welcome!
A red ombre/gradient nail mani!!
As my now Sister-in-Law Sophie had chosen a gorgeous wine-ish purplish dress for us bridesmaids to wear, she asked if I had any recommendations for nail polish. Well, of course I did!
She decided on No. 7's Damson Dream (which you shall see sooooon), but as I was rooting through my various polishes, I figured I would play with a few. At once. Like this!!
This is, from thumb to pinky:
A Primark red jelly-ish polish called Marilyn (from a set)
Estée Lauder - Red Tango
ELF - Red Velvet (mmmm cupcakes)
Revlon - Vixen
Estée Lauder - Black Midnight
Please excuse the tip wear! And the fact that my top coat ate some of my dots. But I forgot to photograph anything before work. In fact, if I had, I probably would have been late! Ooops!
This is what I declare to be the result of my Pound Shop Plunder!
Ok, so I didn't actually steal them, but for £1 per polish, it felt like it!
And it felt good!! Muhahaha!!
And yes, £1 each. I also got Revlon's Peach Nectar, but I expect that will be a whole other post!
For £1. Love!!
Thursday and Friday
Unfortunately, this did not photograph anywhere near as nicely as it looked on the nail. My first intention was to 'jelly sandwich' these two polishes, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. It was too striking and pretty. In fact, my little shopping trip on Friday left me all embarrassed from all of the compliments I was getting for this mani! I will be doing this again, the hot pink is irresistible!
This is one pink I will be wearing again and again! Especially with a tan!!
Friday Evening and Saturday
Again, apologies for the shoddy picture, but it was late. And I should have been in bed instead of doing my nails, but I had far too much to do the following day. This is a lovely plummy red with beautiful shimmer, and the slightest teensiest hint at a duochrome. Either that, or I had drunk far too much wine at the wedding and imagined it whilst staring at my own nails.
Or maybe both!
Thanks for reading my week of polish! I hope I didn't spam you too much!
