Hello! Just a quick post to show you a freebie I picked up in Superdrug today, so if you’re out last minute shopping you can nip in and take a peek! Superdrug currently have a free gift if you buy any 3 Maybelline cosmetics, and the gift is a cute little boxed duo of nail polish. Ideal stocking filler! There are three sets available, all include a red polish and a glitter topper. I got the gold glitter, but there is also a silver version with hex & bar glitters, and a white glitter. I umm’d and arr’d about which to go for, but the gold seduced me!

Hello! Today I have a festive mani for you that I freehanded! I really wanted some holly on my nails, and since I don’t have any appropriate stamping plates or decals, I had to break out the nail art brush. They aren’t amazing, but they are recognisable, and that’s good enough for me 🙂 Polishes used: Sally Hansen Wedding Glitters (gold) Rimmel Midnight Mistletoe (red, … Continue reading Festive holly mani
Last weekend I went Christmas shopping with my mother-in-law. While we were out we popped into Next, where I fell in love with a pair of bunny slippers. I usually ignore stuff like this, as with size 9 feet (I’m tall!) I’m often disappointed when they stop at a 7 or 8. But these were XL, which means they fit! They have cute little pompom … Continue reading Dupe alert! Next Big Apple & Barry M Sparkling Ruby (with bonus bunny slippers)
Umm… it’s been a while! I think I burnt myself out blogging all those pink manis in October. I’ve still been painting my nails, but reaching for a camera to take pics has been beyond me, never mind editing photos and writing it all up. So many pretty nails never to be seen again… Ah well, I’m here now. With a Christmasy mani no less. … Continue reading A Christmas(ish) mani
