NOTD: Yellow Crackle

Nail of the day: I bought a Barry M polish in Lemon Icing, popped in on my nails and it was so bright! I was expecting a pastel colour and was a tad surprised by the intensity of the colour so I put a Barry M Crackle on top to take away from the colour a bit, and I loved the result :). Looked edgy and interesting, I got plenty of compliments on them. xx

This design is one of her ideas, I thought it was so adorable! Not very christmassy but I couldn't resist! Have a lovely day guys xx

Charity shop love !

Having had this blog for about a month now I've realised it hasn't been living up to it's name! It's been pretty much 100% polish and not so much fashion, which doesn't really make sense because I love the two equally! Therefore, I thought I'd start on a subject very close to my heart, charity shops! I love charity shops so much! They are pretty much the perfect location for a girl like myself. Cheap, unique, and you feel amazing after finding an awesome piece! Which brings me to the point of this article, my gorgeous lace top!

It's got a lovely scalloped edge with fine sequins sewn on the bottom and I love it's simple classic shape. I put a white cami on underneath and I got loads of compliments! Best of all, I paid £3 for this beauty - YAYYY!
So hit your local charity shops everyone, you never know what you'll find there xx

Review : Topshop Polish!

Topshop "Cut the Mustard"

Topshop "Domestic Goddess"

As you do on a rainy saturday in Lancaster, we took a trip to the Trafford Centre in Manchester with the girls and the boyfriend! It was sooo busy, obviously not a good idea to go to a massive shopping mall on a gloomy saturday a couple of weeks before Christmas! It was gorgeous though, very festive and happy. Got to see a naked crazy man dipping himself in a fountain and Stuart from "Hot Like Us" on BBC3 (if you are tragic enough to watch that show), topless and in Santa trousers, ay-ay! As I was buying loads of xmas pressies for everyone I couldn't afford to buying loads for myself, however I did buy myself some polish from Topshop as a special treat (my local Topshop doesn't have a makeup section - bad times.). These were my first polishes from Topshop and obviously I have to pop them on as soon as I got home!

I must say, I lurveeee them! They are very opaque with one coat and dry very quickly. Since I just applied them I can't tell you if they chip or not but to be honest they don't seem like they will chip quickly. The range of colours are amazing and unique, I literally couldn't choose! Only downside is the price, at £5 a polish they aren't cheap for the amount of product you get

Anyway, all in all I highly recommend these polishes, they come in loads of beautiful colours and I think you get what you pay for!

Have a lovely evening xx
