NOTD: Nail Art (inspired by Bubzbeauty)

This NOTD was inspired by one of Bubzbeauty's nail tutorials which is her "Starry Night" nail tutorial.
You can find the video here ^^

So this was the outcome after following the steps of the tutorial!

Instead of using blue, I used pink instead as I didn't have many blues ^^

The products used were:
- OPI Samoan Sand
- Chanel Miami Peach
- Maybelline Nude Rose
- Canmake Colourful Nails French Glitter

I'm happy with the results, what do you think?

NOTD: OPI My Daddy's the King + Silver Shatter

I managed to grab a hold of OPI's Silver Shatter when I went to Sally's yesterday. They didn't have it last time I went so I'm happy they had the Pirates of the Caribbean collection in-store yesterday ^^

I decided to wear the silver shatter over OPI's My Daddy's the King polish ~

Without silver shatter

This is a really nice neutral pink polish with some shimmer in.

With silver shatter

I think the two go well together. The silver shatter is actually lighter than it looks in the bottle which is nice!

Closer look 

What do you think about the silver shatter?

NOTD: China Glaze Knotty

So happy to be able to purchase my first China Glaze products yesterday ^^
I managed to pick up two - Knotty & White Cap - both from the Anchors Away collection at the price of £3.14 each! 

So today I decided to wear Knotty ^^

With flash

Knotty is a sheer beige colour with shimmer in it. I applied three coats to make it look more opaque.
It's a really nice colour for a neutral polish with shimmer in it. Great for day-to-day wear ^^

What do you think?

NOTD: Nails Inc. Fashion Fawn

Yay for freebies! ^^
I got this Nails Inc. polish from InStyle's magazine which I blogged about in a previous post (I also got Electric Teal). 
It's a lovely brown/beige colour which is similar to Barry M's Mushroom but I think it's nicer as it's not as dark ~

It's a really nice colour. Maybe a colour for Autumn? I'm not sure ^^

What do you think?

FREEBIES: Nails Inc giveaway with June's InStyle

Nails Inc have teamed up with In Style Magazine to give away some of their nail polishes specially designed for In Style!
I'm sure many of you's know that Nails Inc have given away A LOT of goodies through magazines ^^ This time they are giving away one of three nail polishes with each magazine. 
You can choose from Electric Teal, Fashion Fawn or Candy Orange.

Today, I managed to pick up Electric Teal + Fashion Fawn. Candy Orange didn't appeal to me.

I also decided to swatch + compare Fashion Fawn with some other similar nail polishes

NOTD: Chanel Miami Peach #203

I'm back with another NOTD post! I seem to be changing my nail colour every week which is a bad thing... I'm not used to having bare nails these days as I just find them, empty?
I decided to wear Chanel's Miami Peach nail polish today ^^

With flash

Natural daylight

I think it's a colour great for Spring as it's bright + well, just because it looks Spring-like. 
It's a lovely colour ^^

It also has some shimmer in it which adds a great touch to the polish!

What's your favourite Spring nail polish?

CHANEL LE VERNIS: Miami Peach, Inattendu + Paradoxal (swatches)

L-R: Miami Peach, Inattendu + Paradoxal

I'm very happy to have purchased my first Chanel nail lacquers today! As you can see, I purchased 3 nail lacquers ^^


L-R: Paradoxal (1 coat), Inattendu (2 coats) + Miami Peach (2 coats)

Barry M's Dusky Mauve is a dupe of Chanel's Paradoxal + I never knew that until a friend of mine told me. Nonetheless, it'll be a great colour for Autumn/Winter. 
Inattendu is a peachy nude colour which is great for daily wear + for all seasons! It has no shimmer in it + has great coverage with 2 coats!
Miami Peach is a pinky orange colour which will be great for Spring/Summer. It has some shimmer in it which creates a nice effect.

Overall? Very happy with my purchases ^^
I decided to go out of my comfort zone with Paradoxal as most of my nail polishes are all neutral colours ~
