glitterbomb!

The title is pretty self explanatory ha! This weather is making me so miserable, i'm definitely a sun worshipper! :) I think all of the rainy doom and gloom outside made me feel that I need to do something glittery on my nails to remind me summer is on its way...eventually!


For this look I used Models Own - Ibiza Mix It is absolutely beautiful. Its like a party in a bottle! I just painted the tips of my nails so it looked neutral but still sparkly! I found this varnish better at being 'blobbled' on the nail and brushing off the excess varnish, instead of brushing as that way you end up with a nice amount of glitter without lots of coats.


The glitter is a lovely mix of hexagonal golds, turquoises, blues and lilacs..amazing! It really has cheered me up, as you may have guessed I am a magpie for glitter anyway so I suppose I was already sold just by looking at the bottle!

nails inc. 'baker street'

I know, I know this varnish has been out for a little while now, but it is just too nice to not do a post about it! I finally managed to save up enough boots points to get this little gem for free!

I was a bit dubious at first with such a bright striking colour, but I knew that I really needed to try it. Once I even painted the first nail, i knew i was in love! The colour itself is absolutely stunning like a glossy cobalt blue. I didn't even manage to finish painting the second coat before mum ran over to take the bottle and give it a try..yes, we now have matching nails ha!

This is definitely one of those colours where you end up staring at your nails all the time. I really don't know what it is, there is just something about this varnish that I absolutely love! It is definitely going to be one of my summer colours, especially if I keep buying nautical themed purchases! 

Baker Street is available from the nails inc. website here :)

Have you tried this shade? Do you think its as amazing as me?
