Sleepy Sunday

Eurghh, I had an evening nap and now my brain is fried. It always seems like such a good idea at the time! Anyway, it's just as well I'm feeling incoherent as I have basically nothing to report. Oh, I had some lovely steak for dinner, if that counts? Oh actually I do want to rave about my new nail polish, so scroll down for that! 

This is what I wore to work yesterday:



(cardi & boots - Topshop, tee & jeans - Primark, cat hair - Roxy)



I bought the infamous OPI Rainbow Connection polish that I featured in this postEmma told me about this American seller on eBay that sells them for less than a tenner including shipping, so I was all over it! It only took a week to arrive and I am smitten. I am going to redo my nails with it and get some better photos, these were just very quick snaps. It only took about 3 coats to get a pretty much opaque explosion of glitter! It's amazing stuff.

Also, tune in to Channel 4 at 8pm tomorrow if you want to see me on the new series of SuperScrimpers! Some of you may have caught the adverts on telly already... They got me to demonstrate some tips I've featured on the blog in the past, including a whole bunch of nail art stuff which I think will be on tomorrow's show. Let the cringe countdown commence!! 

Hope you've all had a lovely weekend!

  12. I bought a really similar nail polish from Bodycare for 99p (bargain!). Looks exactly like that, but i love a single layer over black nail polish.

  17. Love that cardigan :o Perfect colours! I absolutely shouted (more like squawked, was halfway through a sip of wine...) at the TV to let my housemates know my little claim to fame when 'your' advert came on earlier. Nothing like a Sunday evening to remind myself how little I get out ;) Hope you're all good Gem! xx
