Pink and Orange: Same Accent Nail

Good evening lovelies

So this was a no brainer for me... orange and pink are the perfect summer combination, in my opinion, and the pink from this NV collection is particularly gorgeous.

Navy, Gold and Orange: Same Accent Nail

Good evening lovelies

Time for a quick manicure change... apart from the accent nail. As mentioned in yesterdays post, I loved this orange studded accent nail so much that I vowed to leave it in place for the rest of the week. see how many looks I can come up with before it chips or the studs come off.. :-)

Turquoise and Orange: Same Accent Nail

Good evening lovelies

Hope you are all doing well? For the rest of this week I have decided to go with a bit of a theme for my nails. I will change my polish each day (as is usual) but I will keep my lovely accent nail just to show how wonderful and versatile it is!

New Barry M collection: Royal

New collection alert!!

Just a quick sneaky peek of a new collection due this Autumn. These beauties are from the brand new Royal Collection and will be named: Duchess, Princess, Majesty, Lady and Countess. Each of these polishes is textured (like the summer pastel collection) and super sparkly.

You all know I love Barry M more than any other make of polish so no doubt I will buy them all :-).

Pink Boa and Circles

Happy Saturday!

I am loving this extra long weekend and definitely plan on making the most of my time. Got some secret errands to run today as the count down to my little sisters 30th birthday begins and then I am having dinner with friends. Tomorrow is the local All About Dogs show that I am really looking forward to and then in the afternoon I am watching a friends husband sing live in a pub by the river. Busy busy!

Here are some candy cute nails...

Inspired By: Stripey Dress

Good evening lovelies

Hope you are all well? I have had a lovely relaxing day off today and for once the weather was on my side. The sun shone bright with barely a cloud in the sky so I reached for the sun cream and my kindle and spent a good few hours just making the most of some time on my own. Bliss.

Tonight I am going to show you some nails I did to match a new summer midi dress. Also those eagle eyed viewers will notice this is a rare appearance for my right hand which will explain the awkward hand poses!

Awkward Cinderella hand ;-)

Water marbled gel nails: V Festival style

Good evening my lovelies

We are back from a fantastic long weekend at V Festival and I am very pleased to be back posting for my little blog :). V was amazing! So many highlights and far too many funny stories to tell you about on here but needless to say we did plenty of singing, plenty of dancing and plenty of drinking. The thing we didnt do plenty of was sleeping! I am so tired right now. Totally worth it.

Here are my V Festival nails...

Caviar and Chandelier nails

Good evening lovelies

How are well all? I am glad today is over... Tuesday is my hate day as I have probably mentioned before so I am always glad to get to the evening so I can enjoy a little time to unwind. Mr LiPP goes kickboxing on Tuesdays so I get the house and the doggies to myself, usually we just curl up on the sofa surrounded by nail polish and chocolate, taking advantage of having full control over the tv remote :-).

These little pretties are from the weekend...

Orly: Monsters Mash: Very Green nails

Monday is over already...

Where does time go? I hope the rest of this week continues to go so quick, the little sis and I are off to V Festival on Friday morning and we cannot wait. The line up is amazing (as always!) with Beyonce as the headline act, the weather forecast is (so far) ideal for camping and my outfits have been carefully planned, right down to the last bracelet. Roll on Friday.

In the meantime I hope you enjoy my nails of the day...

Swatch: Briarwood

Hey lovelies

My goodness where does time go? It is a busy one for me again but I musn't grumble as it keeps me out of trouble until the weekend! We finally had more direct sunshine at a time that I could actually paint my nails so of course I went straight for another beautiful new a-England...

Caviar Beads: Bright Pink and Multi

Good morning lovelies

Happy Sunday. I absolutely could not resist sticking with the caviar bead theme and trying out my personal favourite of the three kits I got months ago in Primark. This one has a gorgeous dark pink creme polish and a real mix of bright coloured caviar beads.

Caviar Beads: Silver and Pink

Pinch and a punch, its the first of the month!

So I have a little confession... I have gotten a little obsessed with caviar beads! I am very late to the party as they are so last year but I finally got around to trying out the little kits I bought in Primark and I LOVE them! Be prepared to see many different looks as I have many different colours... ;)
