Nails of the Week: 23/1/13

Hi guys! so as promised, here is the first post in the series: Nails of the Week :)

My nails are OPI Die Another Day. It's a shimmery red colour with a hint of orange. It's very pigmented for a shimmery colour as I usually find with opi, they are more sheer. I could get away with one coat if I wanted but in the picture I used two. 

(with flash)

I've had this colour on for around a week and it's only just starting to chip at the tips which is amazing as there was no top coat on it. The wearability is pretty decent.

Thanks for reading and I hope you will enjoy my nails of the week series :)

Candy Striped Nails

Hi everyone! Today I found some pictures of my nails that I did for Christmas. It gave me an idea to do a Nails of the Week series on my blog because I switch my nail polish colours so often. 

For Christmas I painted my nails with OPI Big Apple Red.

 Big Apple Red is a bright blue toned red. It has no shimmer but is extremely glossy. 

 I decided to try some nail art and attempted a candy stripe on all my nails except my ring fingers. 

This is the nail art pen I used. It came in a set with lots of colours. This nail art pen has a thin tip but also unscrews like a normal nail polish and has a striper brush. 

I definitely need more practice with my nail art but it was fun and my first time using a striper brush. :)

Tomorrow I will start the series with the nail polish I'm wearing right now. It's one of the James Bond nail polishes and I'm loving it!!

New Year

Happy (belated) New Year everyone!! :) I'm excited to see what 2013 has in store.

I've said it before but this is seriously a new start for my blog. I'm going to pay much more attention to my youtube channel as well as it's something I really enjoy but have neglected due to being ill (thyroid issues). I also got a new camera for my christmas which made me happy as the one I had before was technically my parents and I dropped it while trying to film a shoe collection video.. oops! We've been meaning to go into Glasgow to get it repaired but have never got around to it. Anyway I was really excited about the new camera because I was going to buy one myself and didn't expect it when I opened it on Christmas day. It's a fujifilm one from qvc but it doesn't seem to be great quality for the price and all the reviews are saying it's not that good so my mum is going to return it and we're splitting the price for a canon 650d/rebel t4i. This means I have no excuses not to film with such a fancy camera!

I hope everyone had a good time during the holidays. Here is a few pictures of my christmas & new years eve.
