Penguin Obsession!


I have a CRAZY obsession with penguins...I love them to bits!!

A couple days ago I was searching eBay for a new phone case and came across the most cutest thing ever!! You guessed it...A PENGUIN CASE! 
I purchased it immediately and it came yesterday! 
And of course I had to do penguin nails to celebrate this!

Here you all go :D

Like seriously, I am penguin obsessed, I really cant get enough of these cute little animals!!!! I will dread wiping my nails!

I don't know is there are any penguin nail wraps, but if there are boy will I get them ASAP!!

Hope you enjoyed this post!!

Bye for now

See what I did there?? Sounding ferocious and a tiger? lol

Okay so I've been away for a while but dont kill me...I'm back at college and have been loaded with revision and assignments..yeah kill me!

I decided to sit down today and do my nails...I do have some bad news though its on my left hand and everyone knows I'm a left only means one thing...DISASTER! My right hand is so damn shaky so I found it hard to do the stripes 'perfectly' BUT you will all excuse me :P

Firstly I sponged a gradient of four colours on my nails (WARNING: BLOODY MESSY!!)

This was a bloody nightmare to clean up and I am such an idiot for figuring out that I could've used tape AFTER I did the sponging...pure idiot...

Anyways I survived and this is the outcome...(with topcoat to blend the colours)

Much better!!

Now...the dreaded bit, you can see where I failed miserably with the tiger stripes!!

Ring finger just says it all...

Forgive the retarded flicks, I did try my best and  I don't think it helps that I had pure white tea an hour earlier!!

Hope y'all enjoyed the design as much as I enjoyed doing it!

Bye for now

Swatcher ~ Models Own!

Hey there,

I've heard of Models Own EVERYWHERE! From WAH nails to other nail bloggers to finally seeing them in way am I paying 5 quid for one when I could get 3 for £7.99. Yes people I got 3 Models Own nail polishes for £7.99!! BARGAINNNN..From where I hear you ask?? TK Maxx!!!!!

So here they are people!

All pictures are with flash!

Top Turquoise
This is such a lovely shade of blue, I actually cannot get over how amazing this colour actually is and its my first shade of blue (well light blue!) Easy application and full coverage in two thin coats that dried so fast even I was shocked!

 WOW!! Okay, this is such a bright red and its amazing, so damn bright! Made my eyes hurt! I have two coats on but you could defo get away with 3 even coats to get full coverage!

Purple Grey

This has got to be my favorite from the three, I love dark colours and this is such a lovely colour and I kinda see the grey in it! That doesn't sound weird does it?? I used this colour for my Birthday manicure which is totally fabulous!

Overall, I am soooooo happy with this purchase and I plan to buy way more Models Own polishes! I need them in my life! (If anyone want to send me any colours they don't want GO FOR IT!)
They dry super quick and even coats, also full coverage and total high glossy shine!!!!!!!

Hope you enjoyed!

Bye for now!

Swatcher ~ O.P.I ~ Mediterranean Moonlight & Smok'n In Havana!!

Hey there,

For my birthday a couple days ago my mum gave me two O.P.I polishes! These are my first O.P.I polishes ever!!

These bad boys are expensive hence why I cant afford to buy them!

So thanks to my mum I'm blessed with two new babies! :D

First one is 

Mediterranean Moonlight! (Don't you just love the names!?)

I gotta say I love this colour, I seriously do! Such a lovely coral - peachy - pinky shimmery colour! The application was amazing, so smooth and I got full coverage with two coats! You could probably get away with 3 coats but I decided to stick with two since I'm clumsy and impatient!

Next up is....*drumroll!* 

Smok'n In Havana

I like this colour but not as much as Mediterranean Moonlight! This is a darker shade compared to Mediterranean Moonlight, and I did try and stamp it on top but failed miserably! Again application was amazing and the quality is pure Havan(na?) lol fail much!

Overall I thank my mum so much for getting me these two polishes and she is the best!

LOVE YOU MAMA! :D (she needs to start reading my blog!)

Bye for now!

Nature Boo!

Hey there,

I have no idea what to call this today's post, it seems like naming posts is becoming harder than I thought!

Okay so yesterday, me and my friend Honieh went to Colne Valley! An immensly large park with many little parks inside! 
The place was sooooooo big, we got round to two of the parks: Langley park and Black park (got lost in and walked for ages!)
I climbed a few logs and admired the lovely trees and took loads of pictures of the place! 

It then occurred to me....I got nail wraps on and I haven't even taken pictures of them, soooo I took the opportunity and mixed it up with nature (even though the nail wraps have nothing to do with nature!)

And here is a spammage of pictures!

Texture of the bark was amazing! Felt like feathers!

Love this picture!
Gotta say these nail wraps chip like a beeeeeyotch (even WITH topcoat!) Damn things soooo pretty but chip so badly! If anyone has any tips they are more than welcome!

I enjoyed this day out soooooo much thanks to Honieh! And we need to explore the rest of the parks there!

Bye for now!
