Boots haul....

Boots £5 off vouchers..are bad.. lol I got Violetta ... Damson Dream - which appears to be the perfect Dita esque colour!! Would not pay full price of £7, but for £2 ... good deal!

And.. I caved on the crackle.. I didn't like it.. I am still unsure I like it... but I had to jump on the bandwagon.. got to try it just once!!.. Paid RRP for it £3.99

Unsure what to try the crackle with.... am thinking maybe mood idea's most welcome!

Cherry Pop.. attempt at revamping nail shape..

So I got the fabulous Dita book for xmas from the fiance... it is so beautiful... I keep it by my bed so I can get a glimpse anytime!

Adore the pointed nails... okay so this is a rough try at vintage manicure... will do it properly with tip guides another time! Am attempting to shift my nails from square over to a more pointed shape... if they look a bit odd... its a work in progress!

I used WnW Cherry pop for this... think I need a shimmery burgundy for full effect!

Am completely behind on all the new lovely stuff out... have some Chg Anchors away on its way to me from evilbay.... but don't get me started on OPI... at $17 each.. I am not considering any of the new collections right now! In the midst of will post when I polish is still here for the moment!!

I am thinking of asking for a new camera later in the year - anyone have any recommendations? I don't want to go the whole hog over to SLR...just something in between...

For Bitten

Ulta For Bitten...

This is 2 coats..and the dregs of my seche vite lol... dried fast and applied smoothly.... its pretty...but not as pretty as in the bottle!! The duchrome doesn't really translate.... but its still yummy!

I am feeling a bit..blah about new polish atm..not much is grabbing my attention..although the valentine Illa tugging at my heart strings.. I think Load may have to be mine! I don't own anything from Illamasqua yet... so I think it may just be time to delve in.... the price tag is the only off putting part!!

What new polish's are on your Spring wishlist????

More manicures coming up shortly

Finally a nail related post for 2011!

Better late than never, we had a very sad new year, but slowly things are returning to normal. Thanks for being patient with me!!

Essence Trendsetter...gorgggeous, I love these polish's- so glossy, dry fast and opaque in 1 coat!My poor nails are in the wars...going to pamper them a bit, hopefully be back to normal in a couple of weeks!!

This came from a dear bloggy friend in Germany

I seem to have missed 101 new things being out of the blogging loop for a few weeks! Looking forward to catching up on things :-)

Happy New Year

Wishing all a fabulous 2011

Yes I am a bit late, normal posting will resume very shortly guys!!

Resolutions I suppose..ish.. not ... going to use that word as it backfires!! Aims for the year!!

1. Get organised.... So far this is a work in progress, chucking out all the too big clothes/shoes and starting fresh!!

2. Sticking to my grocery budget - £35 a month is my goal for this year

3. Creating a capsule wardrobe that would make Gok Wan cry! - much as I love black, time for something new!

4. Wearing my jewellery.. yes.. actually wearing it and enjoying it!!

5. Having more fun and giggles

6. Spending more time in London
- more time seeing my family, BFF ... oh and Primark Oxford street!

Fairly simple and achievable I should think!!!
