Magenta Divine & Disco Heaven

Firstly, I’d like to say my thoughts are with Aston Villa’s Stiliyan Petrov, who has been diagnosed with acute leukaemia. I hope he makes a full and quick recovery.

For my nails this weekend, I’ve gone for a glitter overload (I’ve gone a bit mad for glitters since discovering the foil removal method!), with my new Model’s Own polishes. I haven’t done the contrasting ring finger for a while, so I decided to do that. I chose Magenta Divine, which is a clear polish packed with bold magenta glitter, and hedkandi Disco Heaven for my ring finger, which is also a clear polish, with gold glitter, along with larger blue/green particles of glitter.

As with most glitter polishes, you do end up with quite a ‘bumpy’ feel, but a couple of layers of top coat fixes this πŸ™‚

I also bought a gorgeous pair of Steve Madden shoes yesterday, I nearly talked myself out of them, but a girl can never have too many pairs of shoes right?

I hope everyone has a good weekend, I’m going to Manchester tomorrow for Manchester City v Sunderland. I don’t have too high expectations from this game, but we did manage to beat them at home (even if it was a last minute goal!), but last time we played at City they thumped up 5-0!

Save Me

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 πŸ™ 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!

Facets of Fuchsia

I picked up Revlon’s Facets of Fuchsia as part of Boots’ 2 for Β£10 offer, mainly because I had a gift card burning a hole in my purse, and what better to spend it on than more nail polish?!

I’m struggling to decide whether I like this polish or not, but I’m not sure why I don’t like it! I don’t know if its too dark, or not glittery enough compared to how it looks in the bottle, I just can’t put my finger on it.

This is just to show how the polish builds up. It starts very light with one coat, as shown on my index finger, two on my middle finger, three on my ring finger and four on my little finger. I decided to go for four coats as I wanted to try and get a bit more glitter on.

So as I can’t decide how much I like this polish, I’ll leave it at that, and I should have decided by my next post!

And while I was writing this post, Titus Bramble posted this picture of him and some of the other players at Cheltenham, so I’m sharing my love of Phil Bardsley, who is fourth from the right, almost centre of the picture.

Chinatown

Today I was at the Sunderland game against Liverpool. Sunderland won 1-0! Before the game I’d have been happy with a draw, although I’m even happier with the win and taking all three points! We definitely got lucky with the goal though, a shot from Fraizer Campbell which hit the post, bounced off the back of Pepe Reina’s head and hitting the post again before Nicklas Bendter knocked it in!

We play Everton next weekend in the Quarter Finals of the FA Cup, 90 minutes (although 180 if there’s a replay) from going to Wembley, not often that chance comes around for a Sunderland supporter!

Onto my nails!

I loved how I’ve had my nails for the last couple of days but I still have new colours that I haven’t tried out yet. I’d also appreciate any tips on removing glitter polish. I thought it might have been easier over another polish, but no! So please share your glitter removing tips with me!

Today I went for nails inc’s Chinatown, which is a hot pink. It also has a purple shimmer to it (one of the reasons I decided to buy it, as it made it different from all my other pinks). This polish went on really nicely, and only needed two coats. It also has a lovely glossy finish to it. But once again I’m going to say now amazing I think nails inc’s 45 second top coat is!
