OPI Strawberry Margarita

Hello lovelies! It's been a boring time for me at work this week constantly starring outside to gloomy rainy days! But fortunately last week I took a couple nail polish photos and OPI Strawberry Margarita is one of them! I recently got this one for my birthday and I'm absolutely in love with it! The formula is amazing and almost like a light soft gel. I used 2 coats which is all you need to achieve the perfect opaque colour and then 1 OPI top coat. I love that it's got no shimmer to it as I find shimmers unfortunately don't exactly flatter my pale skin tone!
I had this polish on for about 3 days with no chips, which for me is amazing! Usually day 1 they are all over the place ha. I think OPI Strawberry Margarita will suit any kind of skin tone as it really is a superb pinky/watermelon creme colour :) I will 100% be repurchasing this once it has run out as it is definitely one of my favourite OPI polishes! Have any of you guys tried this polish out? xox

Michael Kors Watch

Hello beauties! Recently I've been a real accessories fan and what better accessory can you have than a gorgeous watch! I've only now got 2 watches, my daily one is my black Dolce & Gabbana which I got a couple years ago, so I thought it was time to reem it up a bit more and get a new one. I'm sure a lot of you know that Michael Kors watches are a favourite to many people in the blogging world, but there's a clear reason for that - they are gorgeous!



I couldn't decide whether to go for a gold one or rose gold, but I thought most of my jewellery is gold so it's better matched. It's golden stainless steel and waterproof up to 100metres. I'm absolutely in LOVE with the crystals embellished on the outside of the face and going into the strap, it's totally gorgeous. Whenever it's on my wrist I can't help but stare at it!

I wore it to work the other day and ok MAYBE it's a bit to blingey to be working in a shop but why not! I got soo many compliments on it and I'm really chuffed to pieces which this purchase! You can wear it for a night out or simply wear it to dress up a day outfit - it goes with anything.


I cannot fault this watch in the slightest as it's completely stunning. At the price of £230 I would definitely recommend this 100%, so go out and get it as soon as its payday - you'll regret it if you don't! xox

OPI Haul

Morning everyone! I thought I'd show you some of the latest goodies I got on my birthday! Bought 4 of the colours a couple days before, so I thought I'd so one big post on them.
I absolutely LOVE all of these shades and I am so pleased with my choices (Obviously I didn't let the boyfriend choose!) So from L-R it is as follows -
Pirouette My Whistle, A Grape Fit!, It's MY Year, Elephantastic Pink, Strawberry Margarita, Mod About You, A Good Man-Darin Is Hard To Find, Over The Taupe, No Room For The Blues, Teenage Dream.
If any of you are wondering, it took a LOT to find OPI Teenage Dream (Katy Perry Collection) but I managed to find it for £20 from a respectable ebay seller - pricey but I love it! Please let me know if you have any of these shades, I can't wait to swatch them all for you, so stay tuned! Lots of love xox

Complete Nail Technicians Kit

Hey everyone!! I'm SO excited to show you this! I received my 'complete nail technicians kit' today in the post and I am so pleased with what I got. Although some of it is a bit daunting as my Nail Technician course is on the 13th - 16th August so I am yet to know what a lot of this stuff is for! But it is definitely amusing watching me stare endlessly at a lot of these products haha.

I purchased this kit from Next Step Beauty, which is where I will be doing my course here. I won't list everything I got in the kit as that will be too mind boggling so I hope you just enjoy the pictures! I really can't wait to use them all and I'm even more excited for my course :)


As you can see there is a lot of stuff! It will cover manicures, acrylic nails, gel nails, fibreglass and silk nails. Please let me know if any of you have done a nail technician course as I'd love to know what you think of it! It's my birthday in two days time (3rd August) so there will be plenty of blog posts coming soon!! Speak soonies, mimi xox
