Hello folks! Well this week has been ridiculous. It's Friday morning and I seriously don't know where the week has gone! Work has been non-stop (which is very unusual for me) and I don't even know where my evenings went. I have been behind on blog love and comments, so it's been a week of catch-up. I love reading everyone's blogs and so have been trying to keep up to date with them rather than sitting and posting my own. Hope that's okay :D
Yesterday I took some time out to sit down and experiment with my OPI black shatter. I hadn't been too impressed with the 'cracks' I'd been getting so had a little nosey on some other blogs for advice. Basically, it seems to be that the thicker the layer of crackle you apply, the thicker the cracks. After a good mess around, here's what I ended up with...
|A bit messy, but getting there!|
|The ring IS big, but I also have the tiniest hands! I've actually never met anyone with teenier hands than me!!!|
Well, while I was poking around on ASOS (again) this morning, I came across these little babies:
|Pony Skin White Black and Pink|
They're in the clearance section, and with free P&P I am thinking of trying them out - the shades I am going to buy are the pink pony skin (shown above) - a bit mad, by I'll give them a go - and the metallic red style, as I thought they would be cool for autumn here in NZ.
|Metallic Red - nice huh?|
BUT I am a bit wary of messing them up! Has anyone tried Minx nails or these Nail Rock nails?!? Any tips??
I'm also looking at watches on ASOS - I have a thing for watches but come and go with wearing them (to me, bangles trump watches usually!). This is the watch I'm wearing today:
It's a charm watch by Guess that I bought many years ago (when I was 21 and living in Las Palmas in fact!), but I still kinda love it. I will show you my fav watches on ASOS tomorrow, so as not to bombard you with info today. :D
I attended a craft swap on Weds and received an AWESOME present, but will wait to do a bigger crafty post when my swaps arrive to Jaclyn and AJ. (Don't want to spoil their surprises!).
Tonight I'm going to a gallery launch and I'm really looking forward to it...as I work for a design college within a university, there's always these sorts of things going on, and some of them are great, but others are snoozeville. This one promises to be saucy and boozy, so I will let you know how it goes!
How have your weeks been? I love hearing from you all :D
Much love XOXO
