Swatches & Ruffian Mani – O.P.I. Spiderman collection – Into the Night – Your Web or Mine ? – Just Spotted the Lizard – Number One Nemesis

Hi again !

I feel like I’m finally catching up with myself enough for a long post.

I went back to the UK at the beginning of the month, partly to see my family and partly to do some serious shopping! One of my favourite places to pick up nail polish is on the boat – we always go P&O Ferries, and they have a great little duty-free shop that always has great offers on cosmetics.

So I picked up a Spiderman mini-set by O.P.I. – though this one was also in the sales at Sephora – in France at least – on the boat it was less than £7 for 4 minis. It’s kind of hard to be sure which is which from the packaging, as the French and English translations don’t match up at all! So I checked online, and it seems we have :

  • Into the Night – a glittery gun-metal grey
  • Your Web or Mine ? – a warm, pearly pink
  • Just Spotted the Lizard – a green-gold metallic
  • Number One Nemesis – a dark blue metallic


This has been a real O.P.I. week! I’m now banning them from my nails for the rest of the month ! Continue reading

My Sunday Afternoon Stash Organiser

With the New Year coming up, I’m sure I’m not the only one thinking about resolutions.

Since Sunday afternoon DIY is so much fun, I added a few little shelves to a set we already had on the wall, to organise my stash a bit. The point is I’m running out of space in my polish drawer if all of the beautiful colours are right under my nose instead of tidied away, maybe I’ll stop buying new ones… Which often turn out to be doubles of old ones ! So, using an old IKEA storage box and a few brackets from the corner shop, I rustled up a little organiser :

Actually, the worrying thing about this isn’t the shelves that are buckling – that’s only because I started filling them before the glue holding them onto the brackets was dried. The worrying thing is that this is only about 70% of my stash… I’m not proud of myself !!

Also, a lot of these babies aren’t big three free. So that’s something I’d like to remedy in 2013…
