OPI vs 2true

I’ve been wearing 2true shade no.47 on my toes for the past couple of days, and noticed how similar it was to OPI’s Pedal Faster Suzi, so I wanted to try them out next to each other to see just how similar they are.

They both apply well, and both need three coats to be opaque.

As you can see they’re almost identical. I think OPI is a slightly lighter shade of pink, but 2True is only £1.99!

Azure Blue

Whenever I go for a look around Superdrug, I never seem to look at the 2True stand, but last week I did, and ended up buying three new nail polishes. They were 3 for £4.99, but Superdrug currently have a 3 for 2 offer on all cosmetics, so I got 3 for £3.98, can’t complain about that! The first of the three I tried out was shade number 48, Azure Blue. This is a very pretty jelly cornflower blue, with a silver shimmer. It was quite sheer, and I needed 3 coats, but for a cheaper polish it went on nicely.

On Wednesday whilst I was doing my big shop, I noticed Tesco had an offer on The Fifty Shade Trilogy. I’ve seen these books everywhere recently, huge billboards on my trip to London, celebs tweeting and posted pictures of them on Instagram, so I thought I’d buy the first two to see what all the fuss was about. Well, I’m addicted. I’ve already finished the first, and started the second, and halfway through reading the first I ordered the third off Amazon, so hopefully it’ll be here before I finish the second. I think writing this blog is the longest I’ve stopped reading them, other than to sleep! Has anyone else read them?

Tomorrow night I’m supposed to be going out, and I’ve been thinking about what I’m planning to wear, which is probably going to be a trusty LBD, my favourite being this heart jacquard dress which I got from ASOS a couple of years ago. I love the open heart detail on the back. This also gives me the opportunity to have very bright nails, and I think I’ll be going back to Model’s Own, Hedonist, and they don’t get much brighter than that!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Lots of Dots

Last night I went out for a meal, at what used to be one of my favourite Italian restaurants in Durham. Not anymore! I’m quite a fussy eater, so I like Italian’s as they do a lot of chicken, and things weren’t going well when the waiter didn’t seem happy with me not wanting garlic mayonnaise on my starter (I hate garlic) then with how I wanted my chicken. I’ve never had this problem before anywhere, places where they make things from scratch have always been happy to change things slightly for me. Something else I hated was the waiter taking plates away while some people at the table were still eating, so rude! Rant over! 🙂

Anyway, my nails for last night, I didn’t want something plain, I started by painting my nails with Pedal Faster Suzi (which I was sure I’d already blogged about!), from OPI‘s Holland collection, a super girly shimmering light bubblegum pink, then I added some dots, using Nails Inc Westminster, Chinatown, and 2True No. 54.

At the minute I’m watching France v England, currently 1-1 at half time, England took the lead through a Lescott header, then Nasri equalised for France. I’m not sure if I can see England winning, but I hope they can at least get a draw! I’ve got my shirt on while I support the boys!

Someone we know has gone over to the Ukraine for the game, and has taken our Sunderland flag, which is up in the stadium, and it was on tv just before kick off!

Also if you happen to follow me on twitter or instagram (safclyndz), you might have seen me enter Umbro’s #KissTheBadge competition, here’s my entry!

Is anyone else watching Euro 2012? Who do you all support?
