Nails, Inc

So, again it’s time for a Nails inc & diet coke promotion. If you remember last time, I got them all, and I’d love them all this time too. No shame in stocking up on diet coke for a free nail polish is there! I haven’t heard much about this promotion this time, whereas last time “everyone and their mother” was blogging about it!
This time I found out a little late, and when I went into my local Boots they only had the Cool Caramel colour and the Heather Grey. I was with the boyfriend, and didn’t want to appear too crazy so I just picked up the Heather Grey, and didn’t panic outwardly about the others being missing! I noticed the offer is on until February 15th so hopefully there will be some stock somewhere!

Here are the pics,

Obviously I like this colour…
MAC Love & Friendship, E.L.F Mod Mauve, Nails Inc Heather Grey

but they are all slightly different, honest!

I picked up Cool Caramel the next day, but I cant find it now!

I really wanted the Denim one, so I rang my brother this morning, and told him to check his local Boots for me, and he did and surprised me with this when he came round this afternoon

Happy days!
I would like to point out I am still not that much of a Nails Inc fan. The colours are really opaque though and easy to apply. They just don't last that long. I'm all for a freebie though, and at £2ish, I can't complain!

Does this offer tempt you?

SATC Nails

Now, you may have notices from previous posts I'm a little Sex and The City fan! I loved my Samantha inspired nails, and have worn them many times. For Christmas I was given a little nail set inspired by SATC, with a colour for each character. I was a little unsure of it at first, but now I love it.

It is a really cute gift idea for any fan, and I have enjoyed using them. I love how the colours match the characters! These are not necessarily the colours worn by the girls (I have to say I've never noticed Carrie with nail polish) but they definitely fit their personalities. There is also an extremely sparkly, glam nail file included.


I paired Carrie's polish with Golden Goddess from ELF for New Years, in a graduated layer.




This was originally bought from Boots, but is available a lot cheaper from eBay. Such a cute gift idea.
Also available from Boots are Sex and The City "the look" palettes for each character!
Honestly, put Carrie on anything and I want it!

Happy New Year!

Well, hello there! 
I can hardly believe I haven't posted since October! I just have not had any spare time, with work, Christmas, and such. Excuses, excuses I know, but there you have it. Anyway, no surprise that my New Year Resolutions start with blogging more. I of course have been keeping up with the community, through blogger and youtube, and hauling away happily, I just have had no time to photograph it and share with you. I am back now though, I have missed having my own space to showcase loves, rant, and randomly post!

For now, I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and I would like to wish you all an amazing 2011 (can you believe it!). I am hoping for a fairytale year, 2010 was amazing, and hopefully 2011 will be twice as good! We are only 3 days in and I love it already! 

Make the most of everyday, 
Love always
