Good evening :-)

I have been so excited to try out this polish so when I finally got my hands on it at the weekend I just knew it would jump to the top of my swatch queue :-)

Swatch: Orly Orange Sorbet

Good evening lovelies

How has your day been? I have had one of those days that I am glad to forget about! Luckily for me my evening will involve relaxing in my comfies while I swatch some new polish :-). A great way to unwind. Here is my swatch of Orange Sorbet...

Neutral and Texture Combination nails

Happy Monday

A quick post from me tonight as I just got back from Sister Monday at Yo Sushi and I am so full up that I need to lay down! We tried lots of new dishes tonight and we still have not found one that we dont like!

Here are my pretty but simple nails of the day...

Sequins and Polka Dot Nails

Happy Friday!

I am so looking forward to this weekend... Yes I know I always say that but that's because I always am. I love spending quality time with loved ones and this weekend will be no exception. Mr LiPP is planning a nice meal for us tonight so I can just relax with my feet up and really unwind after a long week :-)

Here is how I wore the beautifully textured Eva...

Pink, Green and Gold nails

Good evening lovelies

Tonight I am showing you a manicure I designed to co-ordinate with a new dress and bag I wore over the weekend. Any regular followers will know that I am a sucker for any combination of pink and green so when I wore my brightest of bright green new dress for a night out I just knew I would reach for my favourite bright pink clutch :-)

Order of the Garter with Accents

Good evening lovelies

I hope you all had fantastic weekends? I had an evening with my sister on Saturday, we ate olives, drank wine and watched Vampire Diaries on DVD. I have seen the whole series before but I am loving the chance to watch it again from scratch with my little sis. On Sunday I had a whole day and evening with Mr LiPP. We had a lazy morning, then went in the city for a touch of shopping before an evening on the sofa with several films and some yummy chocolate.

Swatch: Barry M Textured: Majesty

Happy Saturday

I had such a good time at the beauty party last night. My final nail polish purchase count is a little embarrassing but I will share it anyway... 25 Orlys, 4 IBDs, 1 Seche Base Coat as well as a Kaeso Facial Kit, Matrix Exquisite Oil and a selection of files. Ouch... poor bank account ;-)

Today I am sharing with you my swatch of a beautiful textured polish called Majesty...

Pink and Green Filigree: Favourite Nails

Happy Friday!

Its the weekend and I cannot wait. I mentioned earlier in the week that I have a lot planned and I am really looking forward to being busy in such great company. Tonight I am going to a beauty party with my sister and our best friends. There is no doubt I will enjoy an evening of testing out the latest make up samples, catching up with friends and hopefully getting a sneaky peek of any new polish collections that are yet to hit the shelves :-)

Here are my nails for the night which just so happen to be some of my favourites for a while...

I love Blue and Copper nails

Good evening lovelies

I dont know if I can find the words to tell you how much I love these colours together. I feel like I never want to take this polish off and I will certainly be using these colours together in lots more manicures over the coming weeks :-)

Bright Green on Metallic Green Nails

Happy Wednesday!

Can you believe its the middle of the week already? Another busy week for me so time will fly by and I am glad as I have lots to look forward to at the weekend. A beauty party with all my girlfriends, a marathon DVD and sleep over night with my sister and as much time with my lovely husband as is possible to fit into one weekend!

Here is how I wore my beautiful metallic green polish from last nights swatch pictures...

Swatch: 2True Metallica Aglaia

Good evening my lovelies

How are you all doing? I had such a lovely busy weekend that I just did not have any time for blogging but I hope to make up for it this week :-). Regular followers will know that I had lots of lovely plans for the weekend including tickets to see Scouting for Girls on Sunday night. I think this is the fourth time I have seen them live but they are always so fun that I really would go a fifth time if I could :-).

Here is a quick swatch post for tonight but check back tomorrow to see how I dressed these up!

Picture taken with flash on

This is a beautiful metallic green polish that applies perfectly in one coat and will be just perfect for stamping too :-)
