Update | where I’ve been + Easy Christmas nails!

Hi everyone! First of all, I want to say I am so so sorry that I haven’t been active on this blog for over a year. At first, I just couldn’t think of any ideas on what posts to do, I had no motivation at all. But then, a lot of things started happening in my life that I don’t want to share with everyone, but I just didn’t have the time to even write a short post saying why I’ve been gone.

Now, with the negative part over and done with, how have you all been! I hope you’re all doing well and that you understand why I’ve been gone and aren’t angry at me! I hope you haven’t given up on my blog, as I will start posting again from now on. I had a very strict schedule when I first started this blog, and I just couldn’t keep up with it. So now, I’m going to be a bit more relaxed with my posts, so hopefully it will all work out.

Now enough of that, let’s get on with the Tutorial! This is a really simple design , that anyone can do, as no tools are required. Hope you enjoy!

Here are the polishes I used, from left to right they are:

  • Sally Hansen complete care 4 in 1 treatment (my favourite base and top coat!)
  • OPI nail polish in “cute little vixen” I did a blog post with this polish, so if you want to find out more about it click Here!
  • W7 nail polish in “gold dazzle”


First, I applied my base coat, then 2 coats of the OPI nail polish. 

Then, I applied one coat of the gold polish to my whole nail on my ring finger. I applied a generous amount of  the gold polish to the to tips of my other nails, then with the excess nail polish on the brush, I started to drag that nail polish up to the middle of my nail, creating a gradient effect!

I hope you found this tutorial helpful, it’s perfect for any Christmas parties, and anyone can do it! Please comment any ideas you may have for my future blog posts! Have a lovely day. X 

Autumn nail polish favourites | Collab with Lucieleannexo

  
Hey everyone! Today’s post is all about my favourite Autumn/winter nail polishes! This is a Collab with the lovely Lucie Leanne from Lucieleannexo , her blog is absolutely amazing and you should totally check out out!! I love to use dark, burgundy colours during autumn, then glitter nail polishes for winter and Christmas! I have picked my top 5 favourite polishes, so let’s get started! 

   
   
Here are the nail polishes, from left to right they are:

  • Revlon “sequins”
  • Opi “cute little vixen”
  • Chanel “lotus rouge 455”
  • Ciate paint pot “wait until dark”
  • Essie “Bahama mama”

  

      Starting with the Opi nail polish, “cute little vixen” is a slightly shimmery, metallic red with violet undertones, in natural light, it looks more red toned, but during the evening I found that it looked quite purple. This was perfect with 2 coats.

        
      Next, we have the revlon nail polish in “sequins” this is just a basic gold glitter nail polish, with chunky hex glitter, with some finer gold glitter, in a clear polish. Perfect for on top of a deep colour such as Bahama mama.

        
      Next, we have the Chanel nail polish in “lotus rouge” Personally, I wouldn’t spend €23.50 on another one of their nail polishes, because I know there is probably a drugstore brand that has the same colour at a better price. I didn’t find anything special about the formula, or brush, But this is a really gorgeous almost “blood” red colour. Opaque in 2 coats, and you get 13ml of product! 

        
      Now, we have the ciate paint pot in “wait until dark” this is a gorgeous deep purple, with metallic shimmer running through it. I do not have any other colour in my collection like this, I will definitely repurchase this! It’s perfect for this time of year.

        
      Lastly, we have my all time favourite Autumn/winter nail polish! It’s Essie “Bahama mama” I always have this on my nails during this time of year. Essie describe this as a “warm, rich, creamy, deep plum” and I think that is the perfect description of this polish! I definitely recommend this to everyone, and I will continue to repurchase this every year!
      I hope you all enjoyed this post, and if you want a full review on any of those nail polishes above, just let me know in the comments! Have a great day! πŸ™‚ x
