I’m afraid to say that I haven’t really spent much time on my nails this week as I have been doing a lot of DIY and housework (which is very hazardous as many of you will know). Additionally, my camera disappeared off on holiday with my parents so I only have access to the camera on my sisters phone which whilst better than the camera on my phone is still not the best. ANYWAY, I thought I would share with you something that was on my nails this week.
The base creme here is Rimmel Grey Matter which is a perfect mid-tone grey, I am not sure if you can still pick this up in stores but it is on Fragrance Direct at the moment for 99p along with a lot of other great Rimmel polishes. I am near the end of my bottle now so should probably get around to ordering another one.
My accent nail is Lucerne-tainly Look Marvellous from OPI. Which is a dark grey with a micro sparkle in a whole rainbow of colours – my camera enjoyed picking up the green. I recently got On Her Majesties Secret Service from last years James Bond collection and whilst they aren’t perfect dupes you probably don’t need both so if you can’t get Lucerne… there is another option (available from Nail Polish Direct for £7.99 or ask around on Nail sales!).
For the glitter I added one coat of PMP White Xmas which is from my special Santa Babies collection – I thought it kind of helped in creating a sort of grey ombre manicure across my nails – many shades of grey.
White Xmas is a little snow storm in a bottle with lots of white small hexes, white squares and then rainbow iridescent bars and micro glitter. Since I designed it this probably is going to sound very biased but I do really like this glitter topper and think it will probably work in most seasons – can you picture it over summer neons?! (This polish is available for purchase HERE)
Anyway, I was really happy with this manicure and no fiddly nail art so it was easy to complete on both hands – that’s right, I am trying to actually have my hands match at the moment!

Untried Challenge #2: Confessions
My name is Charlie Smith and I am a polish addict on a low buy.
So my last purchase was technically yesterday – I scooped up 4 OPIs for £16 on nail sale and it was totally worth it. I may have duped one of my Nails Inc reds but we will see when the bottles arrive later this week. I am trying to think about what other nail mail is on its way – 2 Dragonglass minis should be on their way soon which I am super excited about. I have been working my way through the UK indies slowly. I am afraid I don’t have any pictures to share as these spendings were too recent – bad Charlie, I know!
Sins: A while back I ordered A LOT of various cheap brands from superdrug in a bid to test out different low cost brands for my blog – I regret a lot of these purchases if I am honest, many of them have gone in a box in the wardrobe never to see the light of day again. I was super disappointed with my NYC polishes which were good colours and reasonable application but the smell was super toxic. I also have a ColorShow in Superpower Blue – love the name, love the colour but it stained both myself and my mum smurf blue for a long time. I did end up having to buff out the blue on my nails and use a fairly harsh makeup remover on my skin.
