Nail This.

It was my last shift at my holiday job at the bakery today, and although I was actually quite sad to be leaving (for a few months at least) it meant that I could get back to doing one of the finest things in life... Wearing nail varnish!

So as soon as my shift ended I headed into town and bought myself three new Barry M Nail Paints in Tangerine, Vivid Purple and Red Glitter (very Dorothy's ruby slippers) and as soon as I arrived home I indulged in a nail painting session.

Sometimes the most simple luxuries are the ones that make you feel the best =]

  5. Oh your nails look awesome! :D
    I really like the look of nail polish, however whenever I try to paint my nails I'm always too restless to sit still long enough for them to dry, and I usually end up chipping them badly within the hour, and then I get mad, and remove the polish! haha.

  11. Oh my, that is a beautiful and striking colour! Infact last weekend i just bought a very similar shade but couldn't wear it cause i'm sadly a nail-biter. It was just such a beautiful hue to resist the purchase lol. Silly right?

    Hope your first shift at your new job went fantasmic. Bakery jobs are one of the most desired here lol. Simply because of the freebie treats at the end of each day! Lucky you :)

  31. I have a total obsession with Nail polish! I get a manicure every fortnight if I can cause I can't paint my own nails for snaps!

    It's unfortunate that manicures and such are so expensive in the UK. But you know what, it looks like you do a damn good job yourself. haha!

    I love zee colours!!
