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!
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!

I did take photos of a couple of manis though, today I’ll show you the first. This one evolved over a few days. I still can’t find a comfortable hand pose! I have … Continue reading Extended mani
This weekend Mr Magpie and I visited Shropshire for a couple of days. Saturday morning the weather was dreadful so we drove to Ludlow and mooched around for a while. Right next to the castle I found a little art shop run by a husband and wife team – he paints and she makes glass jewellery and other artwork.
I can’t resist shiny glass. Continue reading “Fused Glass Ring”
I’ve been shopping again! I popped into Poundworld the other day and found the Lustre Shine range from Sally Hansen so I grabbed as many as I could find! They look so amazing in the bottles, I can’t stop playing with them to watch the colours change. There are eight colours in the range, I got six. I need to hunt down the remaining ones!
Lots of pictures after the jump!
Follow any nail polish blog, and you’ll soon have your eyes opened to the world of indie polish makers. Glitters and holos seen to feature heavily – right up my street then! I’ve just ordered my first indie polish (OK, maybe two) from Freckles Polish and I’m anxiously awaiting them to fall through the door. I picked ‘I Need Wine’ and ‘Kicking up Autumn Leaves’. … Continue reading My first Indies!
