Baby Shades Jessica Nails Of The Day

Hello all :) What we like? Getting excited for the bank holiday weekend? I am! Even though I've no plans other than transforming my house into a something worthy of gracing the pages of beautiful homes magazine... I'm seeing clean lines, soft fabrics, a Moroccan vibe, vintage pieces...  That's the vision anyway!

Speaking of visions, when it comes to my nails I've been lacking in inspiration over last few days... even resorted to 'baring all' and just slicking on the nail envy! (SHOCK)  So today I thought enough is enough and thought I'll paint em purple. That didn't happen though, for some reason I was drawn to some pastel shades and I decided to pick a beaut baby pink and baby blue combo... Don't know why maybe I'm broody???


So pretty even if I say so myself

As i've banged on about mentioned before Leighton Denny and Nails Inc are where it's in terms of nail products for me (and i think our Leighton just edges it) but I do have plenty other brands in my stock, OPI, Essie and Barry M to name a few. Today though it was a Jessica Mani that I fancied...

L-R Shake It Strawberry & Barely Blueberry


 How lovely are these colours though? I stumbled upon them by accident really, I had charged into Fenwicks one day like a lady possessed in desperate search for OPI's Mod About You, that wasn't in stock (cue mini melt down) but I when I clapped eyes on Strawberry Shake It I thought it was a close enough match (PHEW)... It worked to pacify me anyway!

BUT of course I couldn't just pop that into my basket, oh dear god no, never buy just one of anything, always at least two (and emphasis on the 'at least' part!) So to prevent it from being lonely I paired it up with Barely Blueberry (and if my memory serves me, also some nail art pens and some benefit make-up... I was in Fenwicks though,  so what's a girl to do?).

Oh and of course I ordered OPI's Mod About You online later that day... And YES they are practically identical, as I already knew but once I set my mind on something I become obsessed and psychotic determined to make it happen... I lose the ability to apply logic to anything! I have insight though so it makes it ok! Doesn't it?


I really love this look, massive fan of opague varnishes and Jessica polish glides on so easily the smooth, glossy finish feels effortless. Also can't complain about the drying the time and only needed two coats for full coverage. And boy oh boy I can whinge so me being unable to complain is almost unheard of!! 



And because I had a spare five minutes and dotting tool to hand i added a few blue spots on my ring finger just to bring it all together :)

TAAADAAA



And Eeee just noticed my nails match my blog too, how's that for coordination??? Also please try and ignore my smudgy thumb... My 2 year old son Indie saw my nails and was like "oooh can I touch them Mammy?" ... Evidently we are still working on his understanding of the word NO! :)

My poor smudged thumb... Naughty Indie!

    I know what you mean about being totally uninspired when it comes to nail painting...I go through those phases all the time and it's so annoying!

  27. I like the honest diapers a lot. For the price they are the best deal by far. You'd get 30 expensive diapers less for the same price!!! They don't leak, and my daugter has no rash like she had with the super cheap generic diapers. I think that you can't beat them as far as value for your money is concerned.
