Things have been a bit quiet on the blogging front as I’ve spent the last few days concentrating on filling in an application form for a new job near Manchester. We are in no rush to move back to the north west, but this opportunity is to good to pass up, so more news on that if anything comes of it!
I’ve had another go with the old nails, this time opting for polka dots! The blue background is Ruby and Millie Blue 600P. It’s a bit thin to go on, and even after two coats, you can still see the colour change in the tips of your nails, but it has a lovely pearlised finish that makes up for it. The spots were done with Nubar Nail Laquer in Camelot Blossom which is lovely and thick and vibrant! I had this colour on my toes recently which was definitely eyecatching when teamed up with shocking pink flip flops! I think the weather may have passed for that now though 🙁
Yesterday I also tried to get over my fear of hair straighteners. Well, I’m not really scared of them, but I won my first ever pair a few months ago and have only ever used them about twice so I’m still not really sure what I’m doing! I went for a nice outwards flick and was quite pleased with the results. My straighteners are a limited edition pink pair of Vogetti PRO Pink Ice which I find really easy to use because the cord is nice and long and swivels around in the base so you don’t end up all tangled in it! Anyway, I was quite pleased with the results. I opted for my bog standard Boots essentials hairspray to hold it in place, rather than the more hard core Shockwaves stuff and it held really well for the 4 hours I was out, even though we were outside in a moderate wind quite a lot of the time.
