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!
After trying out some of the Model’s Own Beetlejuice collection I’m back to the OPI collections I bought, with ‘Be A Dahlia Won’t You’ from the Nice Stems collection. I think this may be one of my favourite pinks now. It’s a very bright magenta, with a shimmering finish. It was slightly sheer at first, but it only took three coats to cover. This would also be a great base for I Lily Love You.
I had a bit of a shopping spree the other day before I went to see Titanic 3D. A lot of the things I bought featured the Union Jack, because of the Queen’s Jubilee later this year, along with this Bruce Springsteen vest from H&M. I somehow managed to stop myself from buying any more nail polish too!
As usual Sunderland let me down last night, they may as well have not bothered turning up, although by now I should be used to disappointment! However if someone had said at the start of the season we’d be in the top 10 and make the Quarter Finals of the FA Cup I’d have told them they were crazy, it was nice for us to just get past the third round for a change, and even better to be doing so well in the league after the start we had before Martin O’Neill came in. But anyway, to cheer me up, my new OPI mini collections arrived, yay! 🙂 The ‘Nice Stems’ Collection, and the ‘Dutch Treats’ Collection.
Out of these eight, I was most looking forward to ‘I Lily Love You’ so I decided to start with that. I Lily Love You is a sheer jelly like polish, with flakes of holographic glitter in it, very pretty, but after four coats, my nail was still visible underneath. I’ll definitely be using this one more as a top coat.
I also bought three Model’s Own polishes from Boots in a three for two offer, which I got with my advantage card points 🙂 I chose Indian Ocean, Magenta Divine, and hedkandi Disco Heaven. I’ve never tried any Model’s Own polishes so I’m looking forward to trying these out 🙂
So I’ve been a bit busy playing on my new iPad (I’m addicted to Draw Something) and I thought I’d give my nails a few days break whilst waiting for new polishes in my ELF order. The first one I tried out was Purple Dream, which is a gorgeous glossy polish. It applied really nicely, but I found it was quite watery, and I needed 3 coats for full coverage. Overall, I love the colour, but I’ve already chipped it once, so I don’t think it’ll last very long, but I can’t really complain for £1.50!
I also ordered two OPI mini sets last night, the Holland collection and Nice Stems! Very excited, especially for Be A Dahlia Won’t You?, Come To Poppy, I Lily Love You, Kiss Me on My Tulips and Pedal Faster Suzi! – all the pinks! I also can’t wait for OPI’s Minnie Mouse collection to come out later this year, very cute! L to R: I’m All Ears, Nothin’ Mousie ’bout it, If You Moust You Moust and The Color of Minnie.
One last thing, does anybody know where I can buy China Glaze polish in the UK? Either online or in a shop, they have some amazing colours but I can’t find them anywhere!
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!
Welcome to my blog. Here you’ll mainly find me talking about my nail polish addiction (my current stash stands at 116!), along with my obsession with shoes, cupcakes and football, so a very random mixture of things that I love!
This is my current collection of polish –
Anyway, hope you enjoy my blog!
