Nothing jumped out at me to do for this one, so I decided to stick my iTunes on and let it decide for me. Thankfully my music collection is varied beyond most people's wildest imagination, and the first song it threw up on shuffle was this beauty...
This colour combination has been everywhere this summer so I figured, while I had Catrice's Pimp My Shrimp on from its swatch the other day, that I should give it a try...
From thumb to pinky we have - Born Pretty Store Heart shaped gold stud, freehand painted heart in Models Own Pro Jack's Black, freehand lines and (slightly obscured by the light shine) medium round gold stud, half Jack's Black & half Pimp My Shrimp with gold square studs, and black freehand tip.
Base colour for everything was, of course, Pimp My Shrimp, and all of the studs came from this collection of nail art studs, from the wonderful Born Pretty Store.
At the end of June, Ciate had a 50% off flash sale. £9 polish down to £4.50 a bottle you say? Even better when I found out that a 30% off voucher in Marie Claire could be stacked on top of it. I ended up bagging 3 bottles for the price of one full price. I was so pleased, haha.
I was after another neutral/nude polish, as I can't get enough of them, so I picked up Cookies and Cream. Then I couldn't stop thinking about Oreos, so I had to bust out the black and white glitter as a topper!
Nails Inc seem to like sending me pink/red polishes. So far, in my lucky dips and other bulk buys they seem to have sent me 15, which actually equates to just under half of my total Nails Inc collection.
Not that I'm complaining, I keep thinking to myself that I need something to balance out my ludicrous amount of blue/green polishes.
So after trawling through them all I picked out 5 and went for a pretty pink skittle...
Apologies for the quietness here lately, but the sun has come out and as a Northerner I feel duty bound to spend as much time it in as humanly possible. We have to make the most of what sun we get - it could be next July before we see it again. Winter is coming, don't you know.
This, however, inevitably leads to me being a little pink in places and having to hide for a couple of days whilst I cool down and stop feeling a little ill. Thanks to yesterday's family barbecue, today is very much a hiding-and-cooling day.
So whilst Mr Painted Claws did manly DIY things in the back yard, I sat in the living room and played with my polish.
Contrary to what your eyes are telling you, this is actually two different polishes. Revlon Blue Slate and Sally Hansen's Gray by Gray.
Oh my word these were a right faff on. Don't even think they've come out that well, but I'm a heinous perfectionist that is unhappy unless I'm absolutely perfect on the first try, so not much to worry about there.
