Nails of the day / Furby!

Today's nails of the day are base on a well loved 90s toy... The furby!

Recently I won a draw to trial Sally Hansen's new "Fuzzy Coat" glitter topper. I decided the best way to trial this is with a furby themed Mani!

What do you think of them?

Nails of the day /sparkle V

Today's post comes from my one and only blogger ap! Bummer about the lack of being able to edit and centre text, but here we are.

Today's nails I did with sparkly polish, striping tape and studs.

Sorry all you peeps I can't remember all the polish I used! I'm pretty sure the Gold  was "OPI Goldeneye" the black "BYS" and the red is a "DS OPI" 
I can find out the actual name if you like ;)

Take care,

Outfit of the day / floral pastels too

Super cute, chic causal outfit for today.

Comfy floral top.
This top is amazing because it looks really pretty, like I made a big effort, and it's just so comfortable, like wearing a cotton T-Shirt!

These jeans are also super comfy... but super low! (like fall down all the time without a belt!)

Top: Staxs (nice and cheap on sale!) 
Cardi: Glassons
Jeans: Wrangler
Boots: The Warehouse

Nails of the day / pinky glitticure...

Good day to you all.

today's nails are a little bit old, admittedly these were on my nails a few days ago...

I got a bit over-excited with my new nail polishes! 
the darker pink and glitter topper I got from a "PANZ" (Polish Addicts NZ) nail meet-and-greet and cheeky nail polish swap...
the lighter pink was a lovely surprise from my mother! It's all very exciting she too is getting into the nail polish swing of things. 

Darker Pink: Sally Hansen Twisted Pink
Pale Pink: Maybelline Chiffon Chic
Green Glitter: OPI Fresh Frog of Bel Air

Outfit of the day / floral pastels?

This is a relatively new top...
bought from Stax for $10!!! that's right $10!

I thought I would work-it-up into a work appropriate look with black, black, black!

Top: Stax
Cardi: The Warehouse (mum to be)
Pants: The Warehouse (Garage) 
Boots: The Warehouse (Maya) 

Is it sad when my outfit consists of a $10 top and only warehouse items...

I could probably guarantee my socks and knickers are from the warehouse too! haha...

what do you think of the outfit?
A bit too dark? I'm just not sure...

Oh I want!!!

I think it is perfectly alright that I really really want these!
(both pairs!)

A girl can dream right...

Outfit of the day / pink and frilly?

Hello everyone! 

Sorry it's been so long.

I thought I'd share (what is actually a rather old) outfit of the day...
I would still consider my top new, but then I usually do for items I've only worn a handful of times. 

I thought this was a pretty cute, rather practical outfit.
This could be worn in summer or winter! 

Pink top: Jeans West
Skirt: Max
Cardi: Glassons
Leggings: farmers (they're like a thick slinky fabric)
Scarf: Merric (?)
Shoes: K-Mart (my favourite for cute flats!!!)

Hope you enjoyed this... Let me know what you think of this outfit :)

Colourful stripes

It's been so long since I last posted. 

I found these ones (yes they're an old design- as seen on instagram)

I wanted to do a design like you do as a kid. You know when you use colourful crayons and then paint over it with black paint, then scratch the paint off!

You can see what I mean ;)
I REALLY liked this design!

Here's how they looked before. 
I started by painting multi coloured:

Then went over them with striping tape and black polish. 

Don't ask for the colours, I don't remember! Haha...

Do you like them too? :)

Striped stripes!

These were WAY cooler in real life!!! 

Inspired by (on my phone so can't link) 

I used China Glaze - Recycle (grey), $2 K-mart black and BYS silver for the stripes... 

Hope you like them too. 

I'm excited to try a few other colour combinations!
