It's... PAY DAY!

Hello my lovelies!
Sorry for my absence, real life got in the way a little bit there!
I went shopping today and snagged some new polish - so keep your eyes peeled cos there's more polish posts coming your way!

First off I bought some water decals. They were french patchwork hearts and in a word? DISASTROUS.
They weren't long enough to cover the ends of my nails BY FAR, felt horrible, were far too fiddly and just a waste of time and money. they were so bad I didn't take any pictures - just took them off straight away.

I decided to use one of my new polishes to cheer me up.

So I needed a happy colour... I chose this.


Its BYS - N85 - "Pink Panic." I got it from Cotton On Body.
It's so bright! With the colour and the texture it reminds me of hot pink PVC. I wonder if its bright enough to be UV reactive?

I also snagged a bargain from Inglot - they're having a Valentine's Day special where if you buy one of their nail polishes (only certain ones - but there are MASSES of awesome ones to choose from) you get a lipgloss too for $15!
The lipgloss colours are fairly natural shades - I chose the brightest most glittery one of the lot.
I love it!

Its not "gritty" or sticky, it smells like cherry lollies (but not the ones that smell like medicine) and it has a hint of sweetness. The smell is very subtle - a soft sweetness with an afterthought of cherries. I hate when some lipglosses smell so strong they overpower your perfume and drive you nuts - I mean - it's right under your nose! They don't need to smell strong!!

Yay! I'm so happy now and can't wait to swatch my new babies! You're gonna LOVE them!
