Lake Tahoe Travels!

Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts- I've been enjoying the sun too much ;)

Before I jump into the main point of this post, I have a few updates to share with you- read as few or as many as you like:
Life stuffs: I return to the UK on Tuesday and will get back to blogging regularly from either Wednesday or Friday. I'm also going to be doing an NVQ in Nail a Technology to help me get a job whilst at uni, so whilst I'll be doing a looooot of nails, I won't be showcasing any of them on here. I will however still be doing my own nails too, and that is what will be posted so don't worry about that! 
Nail stuffs: One of the first posts for when I get home will include some items I received for review, so keep your eyes peeled for that! There'll also be a few swatches too, and hopefully some other fun things!
Book stuffs: Some time last week I finished reading The DUFF (designated ugly fat friend) by Kody Keplinger, which I will get round to reviewing at some point…

A Blogger's Bookshelf: Ink and Bone

Well hey there!

Before I dive write in, I apologise if the format doesn't look too great- I'm restricted to writing this on my iPad, in some rather delightful 30c heat and sunshine (yay!).
Anyway. Earlier today, I finished a book for the first time in a couple of weeks. Not only was it the book to get me out of my reading rut, but it was also pretty darn amazing and had me hooked pretty badly. The book in question is Rachel Caine's new book, Ink and Bone, which is also the first book of a new series for her- Novels of the Great Library. 
As a rating, I give it a definite 9/10 (or 4.5/5 as I marked on Goodreads). It missed out on the full monty simply because I felt like it missed something, though I can't pinpoint what that something may be. The beginning of the book also took a little while to draw me in, though this could be because of my rut, and it wasn't really any longer than any other book would've taken. 
This novel really does have everything though. I…

The Polish Book!

Hey everyone!

So a couple of weeks back I did something a little crazy, though totally fun... I swatched all my polishes into a book for easy pickings!

Behold... the Polish book!

Nails Inc: Bruton Lane

Hey everyone!
Today I have another swatch from Nails Inc for you, and it's a polish I think I've had in my stash for like... forever. Bruton Lane is its name and at some point, as the sticker on its lid is telling me anyway, it was a "trend shade". 

Nails Inc: Mayfair

Hey everyone!
Hope you're all having a good week!

Today I have a swatch for you of Mayfair, this pretty off-white polish from Nails Inc.

4th of July Nails!


I hope you all had a great weekend. As you know it was the 4th of July (American Independence Day) on Saturday, and so nails were done to commemorate the occasion.

New Layout!

Hey everyone!
As you can probably (hopefully...) see, I spruced up the blog's design a little! I'd love to know what you think, so please do leave comments below, and click "Read More" to check out exactly what's new and where to find everything.

June Summary

Hey guys!

So June lacked a lot of blog posts, and there's unfortunately only a mere 4 images to thread together in a summary.

I popped them altogether for you anyway, and this month will be better!

Bottom Row

I think for my favourite nails I'm going to have to saaaay.... Flamingos. Simply because, flamingos! Lion King comes in a very close second mind!

Which is your favourite mani for this month? :)
