NOTD - Essie Sexy Divide

I had a problem to capture a true colour of this lovely nail polish from Essie. It looked blue-ish in most photos I've taken, but actually it's the perfect dark purple.  It was beautiful bright day today so I managed to take all photos in the sunny daylight. I'm wearing 2 coats and Nubar Diamont Seal & Shine top coat.

NOTD - Nails inc - Caramel and a little disaster!

I absolutely love this colour! :)

I wore it for about 3 days and then decided to add some nail art.... and I totally messed it up with the Nubar Diamont top coat :(

I used Konad black special nail polish and Bundle Monster plate no. BM19. To be honest I won't use the black nail polish to apply this design again :(

I'm definitely buying a Seche Vite top coat now to avoid this happening again!

Lush Haul

I can't believe that I discovered Lush just now (after 5 1/2 years living in the UK!) I've read about it now and then on some blogs but never actually went to the shop.....until Saturday.... lots of blogers were raving about it so I thought I check it out :)
These goodies caught my eyes so I picked them up (and I love them all already):
  • Rub Rub Rub
  • Ocean Salt
  • Bubble Gum
  • Big Blue
  • Stepping Stone
  • Karma
All Lush products are organic, not tested on animals and smell amazing! They are fresh handmade and individually labeled with a cute little sticker of use by date and picture of person who made the product.
Karma Bubble Bar - it's fragrance is described as orange, patchouli and lemongrass.... you simply crumble it under the water whilst the taps are running and it creates an amazing froth and makes the water sooooo smooth :) love it!
Stepping Stone Foot Scrub - contains pumice and sea salt, smells citrusy.... good exfoliator for my dry feet..
Karma Bubble Bar & Stepping Stone Foot Scrub
Big Blue Bath Bomb - I haven't tried it yet, but it's that kind of thing you drop in the water and it frizzes away... it contains seaweed, lemon and lavender oil... I'm so excited to try it out! I'll probably cut it in half as it's quite big and use it twice :)
Big Blue Bath Bomb
Ocean Salt - scrubby ocean cocktail :) I've already used it twice and my skin was never so soft.... it's very salty, you can even taste it on your lips :) it also contains vodka infused limes (couldn't taste any vodka though (: ) and avocado butter.... they recommend to use it daily if your skin is oily (like mine is), but I stick with twice a week...:)
Ocean Salt
Rub Rub Rub - shower scrub - I also used it twice and it's just gorgeous... makes your body so clean and smooth.... it contains sea salt but not in such a big chunks as Ocean Salt... it's got more like gel consistency.... I'd definitely recommend this one :)
Rub Rub Rub
...and last but not least....
Bubble Gum - lips scrub - smells and taste like sweet candies... removes all dead skin from your lips... and the best part is that once you use it you can lick it from your lips :) yummy:)

What is your favourite Lush product you'd recommend?
Thanks for reading :)

Diet Coke & Nails inc

You probably don't know that I'm a complete deal hunter :) When I've read about the Diet Coke & Nails inc deal I was soooo excited and couldn't wait until my next trip to Boots. I picked up 2 from 4 nail polishes they had in offer... and 4 x 500 ml Diet Coke indeed!



Although it was pretty opaque after 1 coat I decided to add one more and then Nubar diamont seal & shine top coat.

I used a Bundle Monster plate no. BM19 and added this beautiful design on top with Barry M - Turquoise.

Nubar Purple Rain Glitter

This is my first Nubar nail polish and also the first glittery polish :) The colour is just amazing..... dark purple with small multicoloured glitters - red, blue, green, yellow, purple - shame I couldn't capture it well in my photos, but you get an idea..:)

Pictures are taken in the artificial light....

Bundle Monster Nail Art - plate no. BM16 (same design is on BM11)

My second try at water marble nails

I like this technique so much that even after my first unsuccessful attempt I decided to try it again. This time I've managed to do all my 10 nails and I'm very proud of myself.... but still I need more practice on designs!

I used OPI Ate Berries In The Canaries and Venus di Violet over the white base -Revlon White on White
