Cute Nails Never Fails

ok so since developing a serious love for essie nail polish i decided that it was time to introduce my nail tech to it ... i went for my regular 2 weekly nail appointment with my gorgeous nail tech Mae yesterday and took along my new fav shade of essie.
 Sage green is fastly becoming my favorite colour currently and this beautiful shade of green is also accesable from Essie.

i love nothing more than getting in the salon and getting my nails done, its an instant feel good factor for me just as shopping is.
That hour and a half im with my nail artist is like 90 mins of theapy for me, in my job im used to people unloading all the worries to me while i do their hair so its nice for me to be able to do the same. The hand massage i get just sends me into another world and for them 20mins nothing can destress me more.
I Love long nails... iv tried short and its just not me. Im game for any shape or style, when i was younger and still in school i used to live by white tips but as iv got older i go for a cute colour every time, after all cute nails never fails.
This time Mea told me about the current trend of almond shape, so being a person who is game for anything when it comes to my nails i went for it... suprisinly i LOVE them, their long, Alot longer than im used to and i do find texting difficult as im so used to using the tips of my nails to press what i want on my phone..but yes almond gets the thumbs up from me..

After the past few months of ravin to Mae shes now getting in essie polish to match her OPI range..

This appointment i had a brand new set of acrylics put on and vintaged up the nails with some white strips on them with a hint of silver sparkle

They remind me of sweet my nan and grandad used to give me when i used to go to stay at their house..

This particular colour matches my bridesmaids dress for my boyfriends sisters wedding in september so im thinking of going with the green and having a little pink rose on each ring finger just to add to the vintage theme and to match with the bunting that im currently helping make for it (this is another blog opportunity you will come across in the near future once iv got enough bunting sorted to do pictures)

This is the very shade of green that im currently wearing on my nails and that is shown on the picture above.
the white is just free hand painted on with a nail art fine briseld varnish.

i currenty have 13 different shades of Essie nail polish all of what i have brought from ebay all bar one that i was given from a hairdressing fashion show.

i used to be a serious lover of O.P.I and China Glaze, but i personaly find that Essie do more colours that i prefer and think their bottle colour is very true to the colour it comes out as on your nails...

what do you guy think?? do you prefer another make? id be interesed to know what other polishes people are loving at the moment

kim kardashian

 Kim Kardashian is another one of my idols set aside that shes famous for a sex tape or her mega short marrage to kris humphries she woman is stunning.
she has a figure to die for with curves in all the right places and has the most amazing hair..

Kims not afraid to change her hair.. weather its an all over dark colour, suttle highlights or going for a statment blonde colour.

Her mix of fringes also all compliment and frame her face nicely.

as a hairdresser kim is always head of my hair enevy. weather is with her hair straight, in a cute updo or her trademark waterfull curls her hair always looks top notch all the time.

The other reason i adore Kim is her style. she has such a beautiful sence of style with clothes that look amazing on her and compliment her figure.
even being pregnant hasnt taken its toll on kim she looks blooming in her maternity wear/
All these critics that claim she is trying to hide her bump or slate her for wearing heels through her pregnancy, A pergnancy affects woman in all different ways, a growing size of your tummy as a girl who is normaly very skinny can be hard to ajust too, every girl wants to feel sexy and when your growning in size dispite it being bring another life into to the world i can understad why kim wears her cute dresses and sky scarper heels. the girl just wants to feel sexy within herself and for Kanye..
my words to Kim is work it girl.... if youve got it flaunt it...

one mans trash....

that old saying of 'one mans junk is another mans treasure' i never really understood this. what would somebody want with an old pair of shoes or some unwanted toiletries that you get for christmas?! This was untill i did my first ever car boot sale, i was completely blown away by the amount of stuff that i sold that i had considered as junk. From that very first time of selling i became hooked on carboot sales, i didnt care weather it was to sell or to buy. The pure amount of stuff that i have picked up for next to nothing that i have made a new home for or found use of is unreal. Now when i first heard about a friend buying clothes from boot sales i will admit i was very snobish towards it. i couldnt understand why anyone would want someone elses cast off clothes, but then i guess its just the same as buying clothes or shoes off ebay. so i decided to give it ago. As some of you may know im very into customizing my clothes, i like to have the latest fashion but hate turning up somwhere to find somebody else in the same outfit so i like to put my own little twist on it. i picked up a whole wadge of clothes and only spend something silly like £3 for the lot. When i moved into my own house we needed an aweful lot of stuff to decorate it all out and when my boyfriend suggested a boot sale i didnt think twice. looking around their was so much choice at stupidly low low prices. Now im into my vintage look and my house is kitted out with everything i can get my hands on thats vintage (most of what i have brought from a carboot sale) my reccent purcahse was a 'childrens kitchen set' that i picked up for £2.50. my boyfriend thought i was completely off my rocker we dont have children and our nephews have such toys at their own homes to play with so why did we need something like that to cutter our place up while our nephews aint over... ...Now when i say a kitchen set i mean a simple white painted wooden sideboard with room to put your tea cups on the shelving and double doors at the bottom to hide stuff away. The reason behind my madness?? a nail varnish rack! so im now about to head out to my local DIY store to get myself some paint and im going to give this beauty a little vintage make over. im thinking of going cath kidston-esk with it. i shall upload some pictures as soon as iv completed my task.. ....but it just goes to show one mans trash is most defanatly another mans treasure
