A impulse purchase

I just bought the new Nails Inc Autumn Winter Collection which was launched today. The colours sound great, plus I had a 20% discount code, so it was rude not to!

"Grilac" or "Griolet" is the big nail colour for the season - a mixture of grey and purple like Chanel's Paradoxal. I have been trying to find a match for the Chanel, and have purchased Jessica Venus Was Her Name and now Nails Inc's Lowndes Square below - I will post some comparison swatches when I have them both.

As I had a discount, I also bought 2 more - Basil Street and Jermyn Street.

Show and tell......

Hi everyone, hope you had a good week! Can't believe it's been that long since I last posted, it's been a manic week.

I thought I would show you how I display most of my jewellery. I don't like having things away if I can help it - I love being able to see everything at once, I find it easier to put outfits together and remember what I have!!

If I could, I would have all my clothes, shoes, bags etc in a giant walk-in closet - I get serious closet envy every time I watch Cribs!!

Where do you keep your jewellery and accessories?

Summer Skies

This summer, I have been loving blue and green nail varnish. I think they are lovely colours for summer, and a bit different to the usual corals and pinks.

Thumb to pinkie: Nails Inc Hanover Square; Barry M Cyan Blue; Barry M Pure Turquoise; Barry M Mint Green; OPI Jade is the New Black.

I have OPI Cuckoo For This Colour from the new Swiss Collection in my sights as well - just waiting for it to be released! See Scrangie's blog for some lovely pics:

Flower power

Sorry for the lack of posts over the last couple of days, I have been having internet issues!

Today, I wore my new floral cardi that I bought in my lunch break yesterday. I have been looking for the right one for a while, so I was glad that New Look had some new styles in yesterday.

I teamed it with a cream dress from the ASOS sale, tan belt and shoes, gold jewellery and a bow hair clip.

My nail varnish is OPI Malaga Wine - one of my favourite reds.

Apologies for the mess behind me - we have just moved house and haven't put everything in its place yet!
