Nailing It

Sundays, for me, have become the sacred day of painting my nails, it's the only day I seem to have enough time to do it, and even then I don't always do a very good job. Rather pleased with the effect created with these, it reminds me of the 'Glalaxy' thing everyone seemed to be doing for a while, except this is just a coat of (George at Asda) Black with a coat of (Nails Inc 3D Glitter Effect) Sloane Square over the top. The latter is a gift from T- he knows my fetish for glitter a bit too well.... and it's pretty miraculous, I'll be honest. One coat is sufficient, it dries quickly and it's oh so pretty.

Aside painting my nails, I'm actually braving the ice outside as I'm meeting a friend to go over our case for the mooting competition we're doing on Thursday. For those unfamiliar, mooting is something law students do, basically we get a pretend case with pretend clients and we pretend to be barristers and argue the case in pretend court. It's actually really good fun as Lauren and I found in the first round, and mooting is largely considered a mandatory extra on your CV especially if you have hopes of getting a pupilage and becoming a barrister (I don't, but it still makes me look good!).

In other news, this post was originally going to be all about my non blonde hair. I ventured into the world of dying my own this week, hoping to be brunette at the end. Although nothing went especially wrong, it didn't turn out as dark as I hoped, and consequently, I'm not sure my hair would actually look any different on a photo. Slightly disappointing, but next time I'll know I need a couple of shades darker.

Happy Weekend all of you, and there seem to be ummmm.... a fair few of you? I appear to be creeping toward the 200 follower mark, which is ever so slightly frightening... 195 people are actually interested in what I ramble about?!

I really like the glitter on your nails, I usually have to put quite a few coats on to get it looking so good :) 
I love nails inc, just wish they were a bit cheaper! x

Love the nail varnish, I love using glitter too but I hate hoe horrible it can be at getting off at times. It's so stubborn!

Love your nails, the 3d ones are amaze.

Have you tried Gem Fatale's tip? soak half cotton pads in nail polish remover, wrap around nail, cover in tin fool and leave for 10 mins, then take off polish. 

Chloe said...

I have the same problem with glitter polishes, but both OPI and Nails Inc are both the exception, expensive they may be, but they do work. That said, I rarely buy them, they are gift material!

Chloe said...

Thank you. 

Chloe said...

This is my first try, as it was a gift from T, so far, I love it!

I don't know the last time I painted my nails, it's a rare luxury for me!

I love your nails!! Sparkles are my personal weakness :P

Chloe said...

Mine are horrid, weak and flaky at the moment, keeping them painted over the protector stuff seems to be the only thing stopping them from breaking all together. 

Chloe said...

And mine too, T keeps buying them for me too, which doesn't help the infatuation.

Hi Rachael, I couldn't find Gem's post, but I asked her to link me to it, here it is. Hassle free glitter nail polish removal!
