Nail Polish Treat!

Just a quick post today as I've not got much time but wanted to share with you my new Ciate nail polishes I bought from TKMaxx....and they were an absolute bargain too!

 How cute is the little house!! <3 I had seen it advertised on the official Ciate Instagram and saw somebody comment that they were going cheap at TKMaxx so of course where did I head to Friday morning after the school run............YEP! It was only £6.99, which if you're not a avid Nail Polish Hoarder Collecter, is a total bargain as these retail on their website at around the £20 mark! Once I've tried these ones out, I'll make a post on them, the colours are so Autumn/Winter so I'm really excited to try them out :)

I then also picked up these 2 full size Ciate bottles as I just couldn't bear to leave them on the shelf....
I just love Ciate polishes with their cute little bows and the brushes are sooooooo good! The formula always goes on really easy and has great coverage!
 The one on the left is Kiss Chase, it's a bright coral/pink and I had to use 3 coats on this one to get full coverage. The one on the right is called Monte Carlo, it's a mainly blue but with some glimpes of red and silver sparkle to it, it was seriously so sparkly in the shop lights it hurt me eyes! SERIOUSLY! I'm yet to use this one but i'm thinking it will look fab with a couple of the colours from my above dollhouse pack, or a nice red mani with this on the tips <3

So below is my mani I did with the Kiss Chase colour which as previously mentioned, was with 3 coats to get full coverage. To break things up I combined it with a heart leopard print design using my LimeCrime Milky way polish and my black nail art pen. The accent glitter nail was done with OPI glitter off base (amazing product!) and a combo of BarryM gold glitter and OPI When Monkeys Fly which is one of my fav polishes ever. Topcoat, as always, was Seche Vite which is fab for drying your nails in super fast time!

I'm thinking that I'd like to still use my blog as a place to show the cute things I've been making but to also blog about the things I love.

My Family <3

Sewing <3

Make up <3

Nails <3

and Baking of course <3

So.....this is the direction I think I'm gonna go in, blogging about all the things I love and love doing!

Hope you enjoy it too....<3
