Suzi loves cowboys

This little lovely came with a recent QVC purchase... oops... was a bargin, avoplex lotion, cuticle pen and polish for under £20... had to be done!

This was
1 coat bonder
2 coats OPI
2 coats - Save the nail 45 second top coat (made by Nails inc)

I do love OPI ..only wish it was a tad cheaper dribbling over the muppets collection!

I am hosting a NP swapshop in the morning, should be a lot of fun...will snap some pictures..and hopefully come home with some new NP - Have a whole bag full to take!! as well as nail art stuff!!

Crackle comeback!

Yes yes, crackle.!! lol

This is 2 COATS Cloud - impossibly thick but gorgeous lilac (HERE it is on its own)
Topped with 1 thin coat of Number 17 purple crack

I must say this crackle is much better than others I have tried - its still on 3 days later - its thin & flat - rather than bulky and raised on the nail.

I am attempting to resist any new purchases of polish till xmas...err... LOL I have got Magnetic polish on back order, so some nail mail is on its way!

Things I am loving right now

Some things I am loving right now...

Mainly SOAP AND GLORY... omg... the 3 for 2 in boots got me lured in, before I pretty but a bit too pricey.... after all body wash is body wash ... WRONG! So so gorgeous, I love OH hates it, but he still likes the scent of this, it is soo yummy. I have whizzed through a huge pump of the body wash in 3 weeks....woops!

I am training 5-7 times a week at the moment so having some luxurious shower products is a lovely treat post workout... go on try it, you'll like it :)

The scrub is a gritty scrub, its lovely though - I use it every other day and am chuffed with my skins smoothness!

Garnier body tonic- I got this to prepare for holiday, we booked a moonlight spa and I was then thinking...oh my... mottled arms! This is lovely and cooling - a gel type formula, it smells faintly like citrus & coffee.... (nicer than you would think) - overall improved skin texture, will be buying it whenever its on offer!!

Use it on the parts you would like a little bit tighter/firmer/perter... you know what I mean :)

Olay total effects cream cleanser

I am a lazy girl... have to admit to rarely cleansing..oops.. But since my turning of 25..I have been being very good and using this daily. Its a fine exfoliating cream wash, very moisturising - not a hint of tightness afterwards... overall pleased with it and will be repurchasing. No skin irritations or breakouts from it either. WIN!

and last but not least... Clinique... THAT moisturiser..

My mum swears by clique, I thought ay what the deal. It is delicious. This is a sample size, and I have had it over 4 months, a little goes a long way. I usually use doublebase (also FAB!!) at night and then use the clinique during the day, if my skin is acting up then I will use it at night also.

.... A mini haul may occur shortly .... I need my product junkie fix!

The Nails inc Pink/Turquoise crackles are calling to me - Crackle ban!!

Okay yes... this was out in spring, the British summer appears to be over.. I am a tad late!!

Lovely, creme + purple = WIN

(please forgive my cuticles....suddenly they are rebelling!!)

Love the formula of fingerpaints, wish wish we got them over here!!

I have been so good and not bough any new polish in ages... I completely blame my mother for a minor purchase today... QVC Beauty day deals just too good to miss, we are going to share a set from Nails Inc... I shall snap them when they land... the crackles were tempting..but really, how many crackles does one gal need???

.... I am in the midst of trying to set up tumblr... is it just me or... Am I gettin old???!! lol do I need tumblr in my life??

Not like the movies

Not like the movies

This one I have wanted for a longg time... was going to wait until my nails grew, but couldn't wait to swatch it!! Thanks again to J for getting it for me :-)

This is 3 coats, it doesn't want to photograph nicely, but I think you can see the shimmery duochrome.. yummy :-)

The nail envy is working..veerry slowly but surely.. my non swatching hand seems to be growing faster- fantastic! LOL They are slowly getting there!! Have started wearing washing up gloves for everything in a mission to preserve my nails!

Thanks for all your kind comments - you guys are migraine experts & nail experts :-) I have another migraine review later this week, hopefully changing some of my meds will help!

Have a lovely week lovelies

Have it your grey

Subdued but lovely, a bit like yesterdays lovely little affair. I cried in bed, yes I did.. it was simply lovely!! ( I maybe... sang the national anthem in my jammies )

This is two coats, it applied very much like it did when I saw LD do it on I was not alarmed... its a bit patchy first coat, then slicks right up..super glossy after second coat, fast drying. We shall see how it wears... such claims as " Up to 10 days wear " appeal oh so much to me... lets just see :-)

Good thing about QVC is the 30 day guarantee, if you feel the quality isn't good - ie. it chips after 1 day of the formula isn't good, you can just sent it right on back! Great service.

Enjoy yet another loveeeely long weekend..oh I could so get used to 4 day weekends.. bliss!

Revlon Cloud (and sad nails)

Revlon Cloud... Omg... I have wanted this so so long since seeing it on MUA on one of Love8Brain's gorgeous spam posts... it was love at first sight!!!

Its a speed dry one... super thick, nice formula..could of been 1 coat.. I did two.. I was messy!!

I love it so much, I had to take a zillion photo's of it!!!

My nails are so so short right now, I took them down super short...they are sore but they will grow!! .. they just kept breaking off, combination of me dieting and taking 25 + tablets for migraines a day at the moment is completely wrecking them :( wish I knew a way to get them back!!!

They will grow though!! lots of Nail envy!!

Going to try to keep them polished!! (despite the fugly factor!!)

Hope everyone is having a chilled weekend
