It's Not Fir! - Freckles Polish

Hello!  Yes, really... Hi! I'm back (yipeeeeee).
And today I'm bringing a very green mani to you, as it is my lucky colour and my final exam was today. (Sidenote: I survived another semester of university and another round of exams!)
These beautiful green colours are being provided by Barry M's Gelly Cardamom, and Freckle's polish "It's Not Fir!" (which I'm totally in love with, and the name is so punny that it just adds to my love). 

So these gorgeous greens, are kind of a subdued shade, and both are sporting two coats plus a coat of Seche Vite topcoat (hello shine).

Barry M's beauty "Cardamom" is a part of their Autumn collection from way back in 2014, and yet, I think it's one of the first times I have used it. Many regrets as it's so so pretty, and is definitely one of the shinier Gelly polishes I've ever used.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone - I hope 2016 brings you lots of happiness, naily things and that all your dreams come true!

As for this year on Nail Parade, I'm gonna stay in hiding until probably March, when my nail NVQ is out of the way. Then hopefully regular posts will resume, and everything will go back to the way it was.

I appreciate any of you who have stuck around and kept checking back over this very quiet time, so thank you so much, and don't forget to pop back in March! :)

Have a fantastic year everyone!
