Oh, Hiya! NOTD and closed missing persons report..


Well hello there! It's been a crazy couple of months for both Bex and I hence the mysterious disappearance of both of us. We have both been moving house, myself in Leeds and Bex in Belfast (as well as her trip to London for the IMATS!!)

I'm heading back to Northern Ireland for my yearly trip home on the 13th of this month for a week... I'm meeting Bex at the airport for a catch up and then i'll head to my hometown to meet my parents as they are flying in from Italy the same day. We shall meet up again, I like to spend as much time in Belfast as possible when I'm over home and I'm sure a joint post will occur too! This may be heavily St Patricks day themed as we are heading out that day. I'm thinking themed nails and face paint to be honest!

Soooo, while there is all that to look forward to, I still have some boxes to unpack here - note to self... need more storage *groan*

Here's a NOTD, my nails have fallen into disrepair with all the box moving and shifting and my right thumb nail had a huge chunk missing from it which has been fixed thanks to the help of teabagging ...uh teabags. (I'll explain in another post at the weekend..)

I have a herring problem - O.P.I
Part of the Dutch collection I got from Buya Powa.




Holland/Dutch collection from Buya Powa. Love these shades, can't wait to try them all out. I was going to go for the red first but when this sparkly green/grey caught my eye it had to be first.

My new bottle of Seche which I purchased from here Only £5.50 with free delivery!! Came the next day too, I'm well impressed with the seller and will definitely buy again.


My Current base coat...it's a bit meh but while it's still nearly full I can justify buying another just yet so will persevere with it. I still reckon the best base coat out there is the Nails Inc Kensington Caviar base.

Does anyone have any base coat recommendations? And also places to get decent, not too expensive storage solutions?

My Homage To The Gods Of WAH

Hello boys & girls! And welcome new followers. Michelle & I are very excited to share our thoughts with you.
Ok, cheesy bit over with, it's been a while since I've done a proper NOTD post, I was very conscious that I was being too nail heavy so have avoided writing about my recent weird/disastrous creations. But I have to mention my current talons because I've had so much feedback on them from friends & colleagues.  First up, these are not my design, those in the know will recognise them from WAH NAILS.
[edit] I forgot to mention that I saw a post from Little Red Fox where she did a much closer take on the design which inspired me to have a go! Maybe this could be the start of a Nail Meme? [/edit] My interpretation is loose as I didn't have the colours to just straight copy them. Secondly, this was my first ever attempt at leopard print nails so its a bit dodgy I apologise. My favourite nail is my left thumb as you see below (apologies for the dodgy photography…

Something a bit lacey.

I've FINALLY got round to trying out these Nail Rock wraps. I've had them for months but it's just one of those things I've been putting off for ages.
They are really pretty and amazingly easy to put on, with the help of a hairdryer and a bobby pin!
The only downside of these are I can see them peeling a little at some of the edges already, but I type all day in work so it's understandable. Though a mani for me can usualy tough it through a week under the same circumstances.
Pretty, no? x

obsession? or Collection?

Just before Christmas my best friend Gayle was expressing her shopping woes when it came to my present. Know my love for Barry M she wanted to get me some but was scared as she didn't know what I already had! So she asked me to blog my collection for future reference. 
CRINGE!!!
Dare I reveal the entirety of my obsession? Because, lets face it, I can pretty it up by saying I'm collecting but I'm plain ole obsessed and everyone knows it! So here goes...






So there it is, a close up of my ever expanding "collection". Or at least the ones I have with me in Belfast. I have more in storage & sneaky order from Cult Nails (treatments rather than new colours as much as it pained me not to indulge) on the way.
I think I need help. Any NPAA* groups in belfast?

*Nail Polish Addicts Anonymous.
**No this not a real OPI, for starters the real That's Berry Darling is pink! Its was cheap off eBay & was the only polish on there that was the exact shade of Yellow that I…
