A couple of weeks ago I ordered some things from the ASOS sale, and they had some reduced Nicole by OPI polish. I couldn’t resist getting one! I got Wear Something Spar-Kylie from the Kardashian Kolor collection. I also had to google who Kylie was, I’d never watched Keeping Up With The Kardashians, so I only knew who Kourtney, Kim and Khloe´were. Now, thanks to Netflix, I am hooked on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and I’m already on Season 5, along with two seasons of Kourtney and Khloe´Take Miami.
The first thing I thought when I got this polish is what an odd shape the bottle is! Wear Something Spar-Kylie is a pink glitter polish, with a pink base and various shades of pink glitter. Once I’d added top coat it had a jelly finish. I only needed two coats, and it dried super quick, by the time I’d finished one coat on all my nails the first ones were dry!
Today I also got myself a fish tank! I’m only getting three goldfish, but I’m very excited! We set the tank up today, and we’re getting the fish on Sunday. I used to have some fish, but that was probably nearly 10 years ago now, and it’ll be nice to have another pet after losing my dog a couple of months ago (still after a puppy too!)
Tomorrow night I’m off to Hartlepool v Sunderland and I cannot wait! It’s Sunderland’s first pre-season game back in the UK after they were in South Korea for the Peace Cup. I’ve missed going to football so much, and it’s another football ground to tick off my list!
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!
So with all the new polishes I’ve had lately, I’ve finally made it round to trying out one from the OPI Dutch Treats collection. I Have A Herring Problem is a shimmery blue/grey polish. I’ve read a few other reviews which have said that there was also a teal/green colour to this, but I didn’t see it. Also please ignore my very poorly painted middle finger nail, I’m not sure how I managed to do that!
My birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks, so I’ve been trying to find a nice dress to wear when I go out, here are some I have to choose from, it’s not going to be an easy decision!
Missguided Chellsea Contrast Bandage Skater Dress. I love this dress. The top is bandage style, with the bottom half being a skater dress. I love bandage dresses, but they don’t suit my body shape, but skater dresses are perfect.
Dorothy Perkins Black Pleat and Fold Dress. This is one I’ve just ordered when DP had their 25% off week, so I haven’t tried it on yet. I love the style of this dress, and the colours. They also have this dress where the colours are reversed, going from orange to black, but I preferred the orange belt, rather than the black belt on the orange dress.
Dorothy Perkins Feverfish Mint Green Tunic Dress. This is another I’m yet to try on, but I LOVE it. I love the colour, the design, everything.
ASOS Tulip Dress in Butterfly Textured Fabric in Surf The Web. I got this dress from the ASOS sale, £40 down to £16! I absolutely love the colour, and the butterfly detail is very cute.
Also as a birthday present to myself, I’m planning on buying the NIKON Coolpix S6300. If anyone has this camera I’d love to know what you think about it!
Today I’m waiting for UPS to deliver my new iPad (excited!) Repainted my nails thinking they might have turned up in the middle, but no 🙁 still no iPad!
Today I chose OPI’s Save Me, which is part of the Nicki Minaj collection. This is a glitter polish, made up of a lot of small silver glitter, and holographic strands. This polish might work better as a top coat, but I found that it built up really easily after three coats.
In some lights, this polish just looks like a silver glitter, with a hint of blue strands in, but once it hits the light the strands give it a super sparkly rainbow effect. The photos don’t really do this polish justice!
I also couldn’t resist this gorgeous skater dress I spotted on ASOS last night!
Sunderland have a massive game tomorrow which I’m very nervous about, FA Cup Quarter Final away to Everton, we have 6,000 fans going down, so hopefully we’ll get a good result! I can’t imagine what it would be like if we got to Wembley!
I hope everyone has a good weekend!My iPad has just turned up (yay!) so I’m going to go and set it up!
