GOT Polish Challenge – Valentines

It’s nearly Valentines Day! And, even better than that, it’s nearly Friday 😀

So this afternoon at the office I got a bunch of roses! It was a lovely surprise. We don’t usually celebrate Valentines day, so I wasn’t expecting it at all. And, even better, because my bloke knows that the flower delivery is usually in the afternoon, he got it sent a day early, so I can make the most of it, in case it wilts over the weekend! Plus, they smell delicious 🙂

Today’s theme for the GOT Polish Challenge is Valentines.

GOT Polish Challenge – Green (China Glaze Adore)

Yay, it’s Friday (okay, nearly Saturday here!). AT LAST. This week has been so long! I can’t believe how much work I have right now. I work in Tourism, so I’m used to gearing up from February onwards (my peak months are March, April and June). But this is crazy, I’m averaging 50 hours work a week 😦 plus, I have a super long commute (1 1/2 hours on average – each way!) so that doesn’t help.

Anywhoo, tonight I’m bringing you my green nails for the GOT Polish Challenge…

I apologise for my slightly Oompa-Loompa skin tone! I totally fudged these photos and it was the only way I could get the polish to look the right colour!

GOT Polish Challenge – Dots

Better late than never, right?

I’m so sorry for being an inconsistent blogger recently. Since the end of December, I decided to start going to the gym. Which was a stupid idea, because I already didn’t have enough time to get everything done. But I did it anyway, and am still doing it, and it’s making it hard to find time to blog. But I’m sure I’ll fall back into a better rhythm soon, so don’t you worry, I’m not going anywhere!

Last Thursday’s (yep I’m that far behind!) theme for the GOT Challenge was dots, so here’s my dotticure for you 🙂

GOT Polish Challenge – Stripes

Butter London Chimney Sweep GOT Polish Striping nail art

Today’s theme for the GOT Polish Challenge is Stripes! I decided this would be a great opportunity to use Chimney Sweep by Butter London. I bought this polish a year and a day ago…. And have never opened it o_O

Silly me, because it’s beautiful! And despite being a metallic, it doesn’t streak at all, and dries pretty fast. I used 2 coats over a clear basecoat to make this negative-space striped mani.  Continue reading
