My Claws are on Fire!

Hey everyone, hope you had a lovely week!

Today's post was technically supposed to be up yesterday, but I was too tired on Thursday night and my Friday's are busy busy (plus, I got ill around lunchtime, so I ended up spending half the day in bed...) Anyway, the post is here now so none of that matters :)

Today I'm going to share with you a stunning red polish and a teensy bit of nail art too. So first of all, the polish...
Meet Models Own's Diamond Luxe "Heart Red" and my freshly shaped stiletto/claw nails!

Wail: Ciate Knickerbockerglory!

Hey everyone!
Hope you're all having a decent week so far- only a couple of days til the weekend!

I mentioned this polish to you last Friday, as it came in my October Glossybox! (Though I was disappointed at the fact that it was pink...)

Mail: Barry M Glitterati "Fashion Icon"

Hey guys! Hope you all had a lovely weekend :)

Today I have another Glitterati polish to share with you, and honestly, I haven't even tried them all properly yet... but I think this one may be my favourite!

Glossybox Pop Art Edition!

Hi! I'm so excited for this post, you lot literally have no idea...

This month's Glossybox was so good!!!

The theme was "pop art" and came in this adorable box. I'm seriously just going to keep all the boxes that everything's sent in because they are b-e-a-utiful!

Wail: Models Own "Carat Coral"

Hey everyone!
Happy Wednesday- hope the week has been kind to you so far!

Today I have a brighter polish to show you than the last couple which I've shown. Behold, Models Own's "Carat Coral" from their Diamond Luxe collection!

Mail: Barry M Gelly "Chai"

Hello everyone!
I hope you all had a good weekend, and are taking Monday in your stride!

Today I have a swatch of a polish that I was unsure of when I bought it. I thought it would be a really dull colour to have on nails, and I prefer much brighter colours. However, I really like this colour! And the colour I'm talking about, is of course, a Barry M Gelly polish! This shade is part of their Autumn 2014 release, and is called "Chai".

And the winner is...

Hey everyone!
Hope you're having a great weekend!

Fridail: More Carrie Underwood Polish!

Hey everyone!
Sorry for the slightly delayed post, I decided to finish my book instead of write a post last night. (Priorities!)

So today I have 2 more Nicole by OPI polishes from Carrie Underwood's collection. Remember "American as Apple Pie"? Of course you do!

Such a lush polish! Well, I went and bought 2 more from her collection when I had my mega-haul the other weekend. I picked out "Fisher Queen" which is this stunning purple colour you're about to see, and also "Carrie'd Away" which I thought would be a pretty delicate super-fine gold glitter. 

Wail: Barry M "Forest"

Hello everyone!
Happy Wednesday- you're halfway to the weekend! Yay!

So today, I have a swatch of a new-ish Barry M polish for you! This is one of the ones I bought in my frenzy the other week, and I'm so glad I chose it. I was humming and harring over it at first because I'm not such a fan of the other Silk polish I have- Meadow. But this one- Forest- is just so much nicer. I think it's the deeper, darker colour that I like more. Meadow was just... not for me.

All images are using 2 coats of polish.

Liebster award!

Hey everyone! I mentioned briefly yesterday that I was nominated for a Liebster Award! Well, this is thanks to Emily from Nailsxo and also Emily from Nails Must Be Painted! I adore their blogs, so make sure you check them out!

Mail: Models Own "Asscher Blue"

Hey guys!
Sorry the post's a bit late- life is just so distracting!

Anyway, today I have one of the polishes I bought last weekend to show you! And a cool new technique I just learnt thanks to Nailsxo! :)

Today's polish is... Models Own's Diamond Luxe "Asscher Blue"

Fridail: Barry M Glitterati 'Catwalk Queen'

Please excuse me while I go and die of Fresher's Flu for a moment. *coughs*

Just kidding... A cough, sore throat and mega killing headache won't get rid of me that easily! :)
Today I'm bringing you a polish that I bought on Wednesday, but wanted to buy at the weekend. I actually got 2 polishes on Wednesday (oh dear, I really need to stop).

Left is "VIP" and right is "Catwalk Queen" which I'll be showing you all today! The "Glitterati"polishes are brand new to Barry M as of last Wednesday (24th September) and came out in a sparkling total of 6 shades, ranging from pink to a dark multi-glitter-explosion. 
However, Catwalk Queen is the perfect shade for all your mermaid-y people, applying as a beautiful light green-blue shimmertastic shade. 

Before I throw more images at you, I want to stress that these are all of Catwalk Queen and that one polish only. The colouring looks slightly different in each one because of how much lighting was…

Wail: Barry M Persian Swatch!

Hey everyone!
Hope you're all having a good week, and happy October! :O Wow, September's flown past...

Today I'm bringing you a swatch of one of the pretty polishes I picked up at the weekend. I chose to swatch this one first because I couldn't find a swatch of it at the time... Though now I have been beaten to it. But never mind- here it is anyway! :)

Ah, Persian! What a beautiful duo/multi-chrome polish! Barry M have done it again, and made a beautiful addition to their Aquarium collection.

This "multi-chrome" polish, as they're generally known in nail-polish World, runs through quite a broad spectrum of colours, skipping through a brown-bronze-gold shade, a lilac, a purple and a shade that can only be described as purple-blue. Seriously, the range on this polish is unbelievable! 
I was actually sat in a lecture today just tilting my nails in different ways to explore the colours in them (the lecture was dull and the theatre had pretty darn good lightin…
