I'm back from my blogging hiatus. I just didn't have much to say, and I had a post idea stuck in my head but I needed to sort of 'prepare' (well, not really) for it first and I lacked the motivation to do so. A few days ago I was in Boots looking for glittery nail polishes, and I of course went to the models own stand first because a) I like their nail polishes more than other brands and b) most beauty bloggers have been wearing the sparkly nail polish from models own and I liked it. Unfortunately the models own stand in my Boots is teeny and only had like two nail polishes to choose from.
L-R Gold Rush, Nude Beige, Juicy Jules
There was a 'special deal' on (aka spend too much money on polish you don't need and we'll throw in an ugly one that's not selling well.) So I picked up the colours Nude Beige and dithered between Juicy Jules and Proper Copper (Lol who comes up with the names?!) In the end I chose Juicy Jules, the free one on offer was Gold Rush. I'm not quite sure whether Gold Rush is quite a nice colour or not? I'm leaning towards not as it has quite a lot of yellow in it but I'm quite critical when it comes to nail colours.
Which one is your favourite by the way? Would you wear the Gold Rush one? I might try it and then post what it actually looks like on the nails. I've got the nude beige polish on at the moment which is pretty subtle and I was thinking of maybe jazzing it up with the Juicy Jules because it looks as though it would take a few coats to become opaque, so I might add it over the top of the nude beige for a hint of glitter.
If anyone is interested this is what Nude Beige looks like after one coat. You could add more coats but I like the way it looks. My fingers are pink because it's freezing in the house and the only things heating me up are the continuous cups of tea I am drinking.
In other news I received my first Glossy Box today. It was actually delivered on Friday but I was out so I had to pick it up from the delivery place. I'm actually not as disappointed as what most people seem to be with it. But I'll review it in another post if you want to hear my thoughts on it?
Have a lovely dayxo
