Hurrah! So this is just a quick post to let you all know that I am finally intending to make my return to blogging. September has already been a pretty busy month but most of my preparation for this months collection and the Pop Up Store has finished so I now have some time to get back to my nails or should I say nubbins.
Anyone following me on facebook has probably already seen these pictures but I thought I would give you some picture spam so you could see what I’ve been wearing on my nails (yes, this might be a bit of shameless self promotion as I have been embracing the September Sparkles collection…).
<—- So this is Keep the Faith over W7 Black and I wore this for launch day. This polish just twinkles and the super shiney finish of the W7 makes it a little bit dazzling in the sun. My W7 is still a gloopy mess but somehow magically self levels and dries nicely so I am not ready to trade it in or buy a new bottle yet. Keep the Faith took zero effort to apply (which was good as I was doing it by the light of my lightbox lamp at about 4am).
This is California Dreaming over Barrym Indigo – the Barrym is pretty much a one coater although I used two on a couple of nails where there were slight opacity issues. I have missed my Barrym’s – been trying out so many things and was really nice to go back to the classic. I have just seen a link for a preview of the Autumn/Winter stock from Barry and there are some lovely autumnal matte polishes on the way! I had been eyeing up Mentality polishes over at Sally Magpie‘s but have been holding off as I can’t quite pick up enough to make it to free postage. On the subject of postage – what a drama! I have some ILNP‘s on the way (Ultrachrome…OM NOM NOM) and I really hope they make it – definitely seems like there has been a recent crack down on parcels lately… fingers cross indies still manage to make it through the net.
Final picture for the evening and this is Eye of the Tiger over A Taupe the Space Needle from OPI which I picked up from a blog sale. I have to admit this wasn’t my first choice of combo colours BUT I really like how it turned out (even if SOMEONE thinks that this looks like sparkly baby poo). The OPI was great to work with, I just love their brushes too – makes even my sloppy application look neat(ish) around the cuticles. My untried collection is obscene so I was really happy to tick this one off and can’t wait to wear it more… is it bad I waited all summer for the weather to turn so I could get back to my brown palette?
I am hoping to get some nail art done this week and a few more swatches from my untried collection. I was considering joining another challenge this month but I think that is a bit too in the deep end for me – hopefully by October I can join one though. I think I am starting to get my mojo back! Fancy winning an exclusive Pocket Money Polish Glitter Baby? There is a giveaway happening right now on Penny For Them. No, the polish is not brown! It is in fact purple and super sparkly so run my pretties! I am off to practice my hand posing… ❤ thanks for having me back!
