sunday nails #40 - galaxy nails

I seem to be having a bit of a purple theme going on this week and it all started off with this eyeshadow. From that I have tried to dip dye my hair purple, which is something that I have wanted to do for ages, I have just never really had the guts. I honestly have been trying to do it all day but nothing I have tried works. At first I ombre'd my hair, then I put a purple dye over the top of the ombre, but the purple never stuck to my hair it just washed straight off. I will be trying again on my next day off so if you have any tips or certain dyes to use, let me know as I really want purple tips!

Back to the purple theme, I have also been sporting purple nails this week. Whilst looking through my nail varnish cabinet I found this little gem lurking at the back. Remember fantasy fire?! The must have nail polish by max factor last year? Well I actually forgot about it and one swipe reminded me how pretty it is so thought I would use it again for this weeks sunday nails!

I took these photos in the sun as this is where the nail polish really stands out. In the shade it really isn't anything special, but as soon as it hits sunlight it becomes magical with lots of two tone glitters. I decided to add little sparkly dots over the top, which is where the galaxy name comes in as they look like little planets! This design does slightly remind me of christmas too, which is 4 months today not that i'm counting or anything!

I don't think this pretty polish will be working its way back to forgotten part of the cabinet any time soon!

I hope you have all had a lovely sunday!
