NOTD: Models Own Leopard With A Twist

Models Own, yet again. To create this look I used, Gold Rush, Top Turquoise, Pink Blush, and then the Black nail art pen, and don't they look pretty? I'm a bit gutted I have to remove the polish tonight as I have work at 8 tomorrow morning, sucks to be me. I've done this exact design before, but this time I've just swapped the blue and pink round, top turquoise is the perfect colour for Gold Rush.

Do any of you have any ideas for other easy nail art designs I could try out? I'm getting a bit sick of leopard print. Hope you're all having a great Saturday night whatever you're up to!

Mad for Models Own

I think, possibly, maybe, there is a slight chance I have a bit of an addiction to a certain brand of nail polish. If you read my blog often, then you'll know about this already, seeing as it's the only brand of nail polish I ever wear or even talk about. So, due to this, I thought it would only be polite of me to showcase my collection to you. This time last year, I rarely wore nail polish, but now, as you can see it is a totally different story (side effects of blogging). The only problem I have these days is choosing which colour to wear! I now own 20, but there's still a few colours I need want, namely Emerald City, Snow White, Pink Fizz, and Blooboo. They're all just too pretty.

(L-R) Pink Blush, Raspberry Crush, Coral Reef, Pastel Pink, Fuzzy Peach

(L-R) Feeling Blue, Top Turquoise, Jade Stone, Peacock Green, Betty Blue

(L-R) Purple Blue, Disco Mix, Purple Haze, Lilac Dream, Blackberry

(L-R) Gold Rush, Lemon Meringue, 3 in 1, Silver Fox, Smash-Up Silver

Oh, and a little bit of insider gossip for you. I went to Clothes Show Live after winning VIP tickets from Models Own, and after speaking to a few of the lovely girls who work for them, one of them let slip that they should be releasing some more nail art pens in February. EXCITING OR WHAT?! I also shook hands with the owner, who was a man, but he wasn't wearing any nail polish disappointingly.

It's payday tomorrow, and 2 weeks until Los Angeles. Can anybody recommend me some beauty products to look out for when I'm in the states? Hope you're all well!

January 'Things I Want But Can't Afford' List

(1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9)

I can't believe I haven't posted since December 26th. Things have just been hectic, and I've been quite honestly, staring aimlessly at my blog feel uninspired and unmotivated. But that's in the past now, and I'm back! (muhahahaha). A couple of things I want to say first though, HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! Nineteen days late but hey ho, and also a massive hello and thank you to my new followers.

So anyway, I am pretty much penniless at the moment, and I don't even feel too excited for payday because I won't be able to spend any of it until the 9th February as I'm using the majority of it for spending money in Los Angeles (AH 21 DAYS TO GO). But over the period that I haven't been blogging I've seen so many lovely things, and I wanted to put them all together in a pretty picture and share them with you lovely lot.

At the moment I have a real thing for pastel shades and Aztec patterns, so anything which is a combination of both is just a Godsend. I adore this skirt from River Island, and although I'll probably never own it, it won't stop me lusting over it. Basically all my shoes are falling apart, and I've had my eye (probably like a lot of you) on Topshop's Black Vectra3 Studded Slippers. For a girl who loves studs and pumps, these are just the definition of perfection - they have to be mine. Other than these items, I'm also looking for a new suitcase for Los Angeles. I don't want a boring black one, but that's the only thing I seem to be coming across. Any help guys? Hope you're all well, I'll try to be a better blogger.
