I’m still all over festive nails and my bff knows me too well as her Christmas present to me (yes we opened our presents early when we exchanged gifts last week!) was this Nails Inc Snowflake Collection.

The Silver Foil Effect nail varnish surprised me the most as it really does look like foil and it’s so shiny! I used that as a base for the Snowflake glitter topcoat and my nails really do look like it’s snowed all over them! Perfect for my snowboarding trip next week! ;-)

The other colour in the collection is a sort of mauve-beige, which I think will look lovely with a coat of Snowflake on top too, I’ll probably try that next!

Only 2 more sleeps! Anyone else as excited!?

Have a lovely Christmas!



Festive Nails



To get into the Christmas spirit (not that I really need to…), I decided to do a festive manicure. As I’m not the best at doing nail art, I got these little Christmas pudding and gingerbread man transfers, a little kitsch, but it’s Christmas and I think they look cute!

I went for the Christmas puds to tie in with my pudding jumper! These were really easy to apply, I just had to cut around each pud, peel it off and with the help of tweezers, apply it to my nails. Then just apply a topcoat and voila!

What do you think, are you a fan of festive nails?


OPI Koala Bear-y


I have been good on the nail varnish front, not buying one for a while, but with the colder season upon us, I have ditched the pastels and started looking for that perfect autumnal shade.

I was looking for a bit of an in-between colour and decided to treat myself to a new OPI beauty. Out of all of the possible shades in the OPI shop, I kept coming back to this one – Koala Bear-y, so it had to be mine and I’ve been wearing it ever since!

What I love about an OPI nail varnish, is how smoothly it goes on and how long it lasts.



I’ve worn it for about 3 nail varnish applications in a row (that’s pretty good since usually I change the colour every time!). It’s gone with every single outfit I’ve worn so far and I think it will go with pretty much anything! And with a name like Koala Bear-y, what’s not to like? ;-)

What do you think to Koala Bear-y? What’s your staple colour for Autumn?
