September 2013

The first nail varnish was Zoya’s Nikki. This is one of my newest Zoya nail varnishes but I can easily seeing it becoming one of my favourites. I used Sephora by OPI’s Looks Like Rain, Dear to create an accent nail.

Tag – I ♥ Autumn Tag – October 2012

I ♥ Autumn Tag

October 2012

Okay, so this is apparently a tag going around on YouTube but I’m definitely a person who loves the autumn and since I don’t have the facility to make videos I thought I’d answer the questions is a blog post. The first person I saw do this tag is one of my all time favourite YouTubers, Andréa Matillano, check out her channel here, she is amazing, I watch all her videos. I think it was originally an I ♥ Fall tag, but I’m English and we call it autumn! So onto the questions!

1. Favourite Autumn lip product?

At the moment the lip product I’m reaching for the most is a Benefit Lip Gloss in Who Does Your Work, which is a nice dark reddish colour, with a slightly purpley look, but it isn’t too dark. Or if I’m wanting a very natural look I’m loving Vaseline’s Limited Edition Lip Therapy in Pink Bubbly, which just gives the palest pink tint to your lips and it also smells delicious!

September 2012

I’ve worn a lot of different nail varnishes this month, I’ve been changing my nail varnish every couple of days and I thought I’d share what I’ve been wearing on my nails this month.

I was making the most of the end of summer to wear my neon nail varnish and this look combines China Glaze’s Flirty Tankini with an accent nail in China Glaze’s Sun-Kissed. I think Flirty Tankini is my favourite nail varnish from China Glaze’s Summer Neon’s collection.

Nail Varnish Picks – Autumn 2012

Nail Varnish Picks

Autumn 2012

Now that there’s a definite nip in the air and the nights are drawing in, it is very easy to see that autumn is well on the way to northern England. And that tends to mean that the nail varnishes I reach for on a regular basis are different to the ones I wear in the summer. I’ve worn a lot of neon nail varnish this summer (I haven’t worn anything else on my toes) but I’ve now pretty much put them back in their boxes until next summer now. The weather and season’s really do influence what nail varnish I will wear. I know some people just wear whatever they want when they want, and that’s great, but these are the nail varnishes which I know I’ll be reaching for a lot this season, and probably into winter as well. I have included photos if I have worn the nail varnishes I’m writing about before, but there are a few which I mention which I haven’t used yet, which I have been saving for this autumn.

The first nail varnish I want to talk about is Zodiac by Topshop. I have an entire review on this nail varnish and the read that, click here.  And there’s not much more to say about this nail varnish than I said there. It’s a blackish greeny colour with a really strong gold shimmer in it. And I mean it is loaded with shimmer. It is from Topshop’s Spring Summer 2012 collection Sisters of the New Moon, so I’m not sure if it is available anymore.
