Nails Inc - Little Miss Naughty

Number 3 of 4 in the Nails Inc Little Miss collection is Little Miss Naughty.  I think that out of the Little Miss(s), Little Miss Sunshine and Little Miss Naughty are most probably the most well known.

Little Miss Naughty is exactly that, anything she can do that's even slightly naughty then she will do it.  I think all of us has that mischievous side to us!

As expected, the Little Miss Naughty polish is purple, a bright naughty purple!  The packaging is of course the same as the others in the collection, with images of Little Miss Naughty on the backing card, and one on the front of the bottle.

It's getting dark.....

Sorry for not posting lately! At the moment, when I go out to work in the morning it's dark, and when I get back after work it's dark! Winter is definitely on it's way!

Basically this means that I haven't had chance to paint my nails, and definitely haven't managed to get any pictures. Hopefully I can play catch up in that respect on Tuesday, my next day off, so sorry for all keeping you waiting!

As I mention on my about me, and about this blog pages, I suffer from ME/CFS. Today on BBC News there is a new article about ME/CFS. Whilst it doesn't offer any more insight into the causes behind ME/CFS, it will hopefully make the general public more aware of what a debilitating condition it is, and I definitely support increased public awareness!

If you get a chance please check out the article and take some time to learn a bit more about ME/CFS.

Nails Inc - Little Miss Sunshine

Well it's time for the next instalment in the Nails Inc Little Miss collection and this time I've chosen Little Miss Sunshine.

Now Little Miss Sunshine is one of the cheeriest Little Miss and Mr Men characters and this nail polish certainly brightened my day!

Lanolips - Lemonaid Lip Aid

Having been blown over by the Lanolips 101 ointment, I have since found myself considering trying out other products in the Lanolips range.

When I clicked onto the Lanolips website for a bit of "next purchase" research, I was pleased to see that more Boots stores now stock Lanolips! Even though ordering into store last time wasn't exactly difficult, it being in my local store definitely made my purchase easier.

Boots now seem to stock the Lanolips 101 ointment and the Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid.  I'm yet to see the coloured versions in store, but they can be ordered into store.

Having already purchased the Lanolips 101 ointment, I decided to try out the Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid.

Mavala Cuticle Oil - Update

Just a very quick post, as unfortunately one of my rabbits has just died.

You may remember one of my first posts on Mavala Cuticle Oil in which I promised an update.

Well in the end, I found the product to be rather unnecessary. I didn't find it to have particularly amazing results, and just felt that if anything it just added an extra step to my manicure!!! 

I do still use the product however, but not as a cuticle oil! I instead use it to help dry my nail polish when I'm in a hurry, by just letting the brush dot some oil on my nails.  That way it still gets to my cuticles (in case it has some hidden benefit that I'm not aware of) and uses the product up!!!

I love it when I can find another use for something if the official use doesn't work out the way I want it to!  I'm now using a hand moisturiser that seems to be keeping my nails and cuticles in very good condition, so I'm not so worried about having a specific cuticle product anymore.

Will hopefully have a slightly longer post on something new soon.

Nails Inc - Little Miss Chatterbox - Refreshed!!!

Well after a couple of days of wearing Nails Inc Little Miss Chatterbox, I'd started to get a little bit of tip wear, but I just couldn't bear to change the colour as I loved it, so I decided to refresh it a bit!

I simply took a cotton bud soaked in nail varnish remover and took off any remaining colour on the tips, added a gold edge with W7 Golden Pearl. I thought it worked well with the lilac/chocolate colour.  Then just popped a top-coat over the top.

Nails Inc - Little Miss Chatterbox

I received an email at the end of July that immediately got me excited.  Little Miss (as in Mr. Men and Little Miss) were celebrating there 40th Anniversary and as part of this Nails Inc were producing a collection of 4 polishes to join in with the celebrations.  Needless to say that as soon as they were released I had mine on order!!!!

I've been meaning to wear them for ages, but I just keep forgetting!!!!  So today, having done the extremes of pink and blue, I decided to go for something a little more natural, and chose Little Miss Chatterbox from the collection.

I received mine in really cute packaging! It comes in a plastic box with Little Miss Chatterbox on the front and on a card inside.  The bottle itself is the typical Nails Inc bottle with the silver lid, but has Little Miss Chatterbox on the front.

Now like I've said before, my camera really doesn't cope with blue tones!  Little Miss Chatterbox is what I would call a mushroom colour, with a slightly purple/lilac undertone.  It's a creme polish which was easily opaque in two coats, and posed no application issues!

I haven't got any colours like this in my collection, as I've never really been into the whole "griege/taupe" scene, but I have to say I love this colour.  It's very wearable for work and I can see it being worn a lot!!!  I can't wait to try the rest from this collection!

This colour is currently out of stock, but you can see it on the Nails Inc Website.

Did you buy any polishes from the Little Miss collection? Which Little Miss are you?

OPI - Flower-to-Flower

So having spent a few days with blue, I decided to go for something a little bit different!!  Now my friends all know that I don't come across as girly, but secretly I am!!! But just to shock them more, I've recently started liking pink!!!

OPI Flower-to-Flower Swatch

This is Flower-to-Flower from OPI's Summer Flutter Collection from 2010.  As far as I can remember, this is the only one I have from that collection.

Essie Smooth Sailing and Andrea Fulerton Gemstone Overcoat

Well I didn't get enough time to do any nail art over the top of Essie Smooth Sailing, but I did have time to kick it up a notch!

I posted a little while ago about the Andrea Fulerton Gemstone Overcoat, where I just wore it layered over itself.  But today I decided that I would actually try it over a colour, and seeings as I was in need of something quick, it was the perfect addition to Essie's Smooth Sailing.

This is just one coat over my previous manicure, and was just as eye catching as when I wore the individual colours on their own!!!!

The picture above shows a bit more of a close-up of the "gemstones" sparkling through red, orange, yellow and green!! I'm definitely in love with both of these colours!!!!!
