Garrick Street

Garrick Street was a polish I received as part of my free gift from Nails Inc, for spending over £35. This polish wouldn’t look out of place in Models Own’s Beetlejuice collection. It’s a lovely purple and blue duo chrome polish, and if anything, I’d say its a better version of Purple Blue. This was two coats, and its very pretty!

I’ve just finished reading Paige Toon’s “One Perfect Summer.’ I finished it in two days, I couldn’t put it down! If you haven’t read any Paige Toon books, I’d highly recommend all of them, especially this, and ‘Chasing Daisy,’ which is my favourite of hers.

So now I’ve finished this book, I’m left with nothing to read until ‘I Heart London’ is out, does anyone have any recommendations?

Emerald Black

Back to the Model’s Own Beetlejuice collection, and Emerald Black, which I was really looking forward to getting my hands on. I was actually a little disappointed with this, it wasn’t as duochrome as I’ve seen in some pictures, and certainly not compared to the others I have tried from this collection. Rather than being a combination of black and green, to me it just looked like a dark green, which was still a nice colour though. There was also a hint of blue in the bottle at times, although this didn’t show on the nail.

I’m off to Birmingham tomorrow for Aston Villa v Sunderland, hoping it’ll be a better game that our last two home games, which were both a snooze fest! Hope everyone has a nice weekend!

Purple Blue

Purple Blue is the polish I was wearing over the weekend and is the last of the Model’s Own Beetlejuice collection that I have to try out at the minute (really want Emerald Green though!) Out of the three I’ve tried so far, I’d have to say this is my least favourite. It’s still a really pretty polish, with shades of purple, blue and copper, and it’s very shimmery. It only took a couple of coats for full coverage, and unlike Aqua Violet there were no visible brushstrokes.

Last night I went to see Steps – The Ultimate Tour. It was brilliant! So cheesy as I expected, but so much fun! I can’t believe I still know the dance routines after nearly 15 years!

Aqua Violet

Another from the Model’s Own Beetlejuice Collection. I can definitely say I’m in love with this collection! Aqua Violet has an almost metallic finish, and the colours were absolutely gorgeous. The only problem I had with this polish was that some brushstrokes was visible. As with Indian Ocean I’ve had to take quite a few pictures to show the colours in this polish, although the pictures don’t really show how stunning this polish is.

I can’t decide whether this or Indian Ocean is my favourite so far from the Beetlejuice Collection, I love both! I still have Purple Blue to try out, and I also want Emerald Black, which the Boots I went to didn’t have.

I discovered this the other day when I was looking around online, Ciate’s Caviar Manicure.

I love the look of this! Especially the rainbow one which looks like hundreds and thousands! Has anyone tried this? I’m very tempted to give it a go once they have them back in stock, but I’m not sure if I’d have the patience, or how long the beads would stay on!

Also, missguided got the better of me the other day!I’m a big fan of their dresses, but this time it was a jumper that got my attention.

This is another I love, but I decided to save it for next time!

One last thing, how stunning is the Michael Kors dress that Lea Michele is wearing? I love everything about it. I’m definitely going to be keeping my eye out for something similar.

Indian Ocean

I still can’t believe the result from Saturday! Away at Manchester City, winning 3-1, then we threw it away and drew 3-3! It is still a good result, I’d have happily taken a draw before the game, but it was a bit disappointing going from 3-1 to 3-3 in the last 10 minutes. I did manage to get on TV though, celebrating Seb Larsson’s second goal, and I spotted myself on some pictures! On the first one, I’m just above Mario Balotelli’s head, in front of the person with the red and white shirt on. And the second, I’ve disappeared completely in the madness of the celebrations, and I don’t know how! I can see my dad going crazy, and the guy who was stood next to me on the other side, the little kid in front of me, but I’m nowhere to be seen!

So, onto my nails! I went for the last of my three new Model’s Own polishes, Indian Ocean, which is part of the Beetlejuice Collection.

Indian Ocean was a very sheer polish, and took four coats to get full coverage, definitely worth it though. This shows one coat on my index finger, two on my middle, three on my ring finger, and four on my little finger.

I absolutely LOVE this polish. It’s a shimmery blue, which changes to yellow, orange, pink and purple. It’s so pretty! I tried to show all the different colours so I took quite a few pictures!

I think I’ll have to have another trip to Boots soon while they have their 3 for 2 cosmetics off on, I really want to try out Purple Blue, Emerald Black and Aqua Violet from this collection!
