Anny Bloody Return with Shimmer Polish Eva and Mary Nail art

It’s nearly Friday! I’m glad this week is going by fast, it’s not been a very easy one. Although, I had a nice moment on Wednesday evening. On Wednesdays, I usually have a long day, but this one was especially stressful due to some last-minute cancellations. So I left the office later than I would have liked, and as I was going through my usual route to get home, encountered an American couple. Lost tourists in Paris, trying to make their way to Versailles, so I gave them some quick advice and ran on to catch my train.

Then, I realised that my train was cancelled, and that I would probably be catching the same one as them, so I went back to find them and helped make sure they catch it okay; and when we were nearly at the station, helped to make sure they found the taxi rank okay. Anyway, it sounds silly, but they were such lovely people, it was nice to have a little chat and feel like I was doing something really useful 🙂

Another thing that really brightens a bad day for me, is when I get surprise nail mail from a blogging buddy. I swear that Sabrina from the Polish Alcoholic has supplied a good percentage of my stash now, she is so generous! And I especially love putting those polishes to one side, to pull out when I need a little pick-me-up. They’re just extra special because someone picked them out just for me, ya know?

#31DC2013 – Violet Nails

Yay, it’s Friday !

Ok, so for once I’m not super pleased that the week is already over, since I’m back at work on Monday, boo! But I am happy that today’s theme is violet. I love purple nails!

After a huge amount of umm-ing and ahh-ing, I decided on Zoya Mimi. This is a polish that I haven’t featured before, and it’s stunning! It’s a purple glass-fleck microglitter polish that felt just perfect for rebelling against this morning’s thunder storm 🙂

Nail Art Ideas Linkup – Sand

Oooh I’m a bit late for this one ! I’ve finally ‘recovered’ from my holiday last week, and I’m getting back on top of things 🙂

Of course, while I was away I grabbed some nail polish – you’ll get to see that soon, once I’ve picked out which ones I’m sending on as surprise nail mail… I was actually pretty sensible for once, so I’m very proud of that!

Voting is still (just!) open for last week’s theme, so if you’d like to vote, click here – you get 3 votes, so you can spread the love


Like any good NPA (Nail Polish Addict), I’m keeping a close eye on the autumn (fall) collections coming out. Unfortunately, there’s not one that’s really impressing me. I already got my hands on the single polish that really caught my eye from Butter London (swatch here), and I’m planning on grabbing the gold and silver China Glaze foils if I get the chance, plus the I Love Nail Polish Ultra Chromes, but the best autumn collection for me is last year’s On Safari by China Glaze. So I used 3 polishes from this collection for my sandy French 🙂

Monday Macros are back !

So it’s nearly not Monday any more, but now the OMD Challenge is over, I want to get back to sharing macro shots with you 🙂

These two are glitterbombs that I made this weekend. I’ve not tested them yet but I hope they work out, I’m so happy with the combo !

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 21. Stamping

I’m so glad I had this one pre-prepared ! (there’s no point denying it, my fingers are their old colour and my nails aren’t so long)

I had a French mani for work one monday, and on my way home (I have a very long commute) couldn’t decide what to do with it ! Sabrina suggested flowers, and I decided I would stamp them to pre-prepare a mani for the challenge 😀

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 20. 3D

Whoops! I’m behind again…

In my defence, I have a very good reason. You see, we’re having a huge heat wave at the moment, which (1) makes a lot of my nail polish a nightmare to work with. And (2) means I’m not happy unless I’m getting a tan ! you’ll have to forgive me – and I promise, I am using SPF !

You’ll also have to forgive me that I’m struggling to get my colours right now, the tan’s developing on a daily basis, and I can’t quite keep up with what colour my skin is supposed to be, lol

The challenge is hotting up now, so this is the last opportunity I can see for keeping it simple !
