Todays Nails #23

Hello lovelies!!!

On my nails today is what I like to call "a snowy night" because I think they look like snow falling at night (I told my mum that and she thought I was nuts!)


I got a few new polishes for Christmas my favourite being this CND one in Purple Purple, you can't buy CND from shops you have to get them from salons. 
On top of that I used Illamasqua Blizzard nail polish which give the lovely snow effect, its all topped off with a CND top coat.
I am going to do a review on the CND polishes because they have quite an interesting characteristic and I'm curious to weather it's true it not :)

Today's Nails #21

Hello lovelies!!!

For my birthday my mum and dad treated me to a manicure and pedicure (both of which I had never experienced before) I was super exited and it was such a lovely and relaxing treat (even better than the beautician is my cousin!)
I know some people are grossed out by feet so I chose not to put a picture of my toes incase you don't like feet, but here's a picture of my finger nails!


 
I have no clue what polishes were used as I couldn't see a brand name on the bottles
 But they were two she used, a two tone purple topped with a purple glitter topcoat.

I loved the whole experience but my favourite part was definitely the scrubs (they felt so good on both hands and feet!) and the foot mask which was amazing!

Have a nice day!

Barry M in Blue Grape

Have a lovely day!
