Nails, Nails, Nails

I have to admit I am a girl who paints her nails, although it is only because I've found they are less prone to breaking with polish on. However I might just have changed my mind! See I've never been able to find a polish that simply just glides on, as you would expect, so I've never really been bothered by it, until today. My housemate for Christmas bought me a Topshop Nail Polish Set originally when I opened it I thought oh great this is going to be useless. So after days of pondering I have finally tried it and the outcome is amazing.

When putting the nail varnish on it isn't thick and gloppy so you don't have to take most of the varnish off of the brush before you put it on your nails. If you make a mistake it is incredibly easy to remove and with it being thin-ish (not too thin but not too thick) you do not have to wait hours waiting for it to dry, or put numerous coats on top of each other.

As it is quite a light colour I did put on two coats, however I think I waited a couple of minutes the first time and 5 minutes for the second coat, just to be safe. But overall I am super happy with my Christmas present and I am counting down the days until my student loan comes back in so I can go and buy looooads more!

If you want to buy the varnishes separately the gold is called crystal clouds, the glitter is called ice crush and the lilac is called parma violet.

Outfit of the Day

I definitely couldn't wait to get the topshop petite dress I bought yesterday on! With it being winter and unable to wear anything but tights I make it a perfect excuse to wear it! Now admittedly the dress is quite short and seems to be getting small with each time I put it on but I've taught myself not to drop anything on the floor and hope I'm with someone to pick up whatever is on the floor.

I decided to match the dress with my favourite aztec cardigan from Republic and the tights are from Next, after all hints of colour make a black outfit more fun!

New Purchases!

Definitely didn't go on a small shopping trip, it ended up as a rather large shopping trip with possibly more posts with my outfits from it.

I have to sadly to say that the clothing from urban outfitters had to go back, major sad face! I just didn't have any clothes to mix them with and I kind of ran my budget dry so couldn't buy anything to mix them with. So lets start with Topshop, I have to say I don't completely agree with some of the designs that are now around, eg the whole hipster look. Now I don't have anything against this look, as my best friend is and has been a hipster for a good four years, I just don't understand the whole shorts and tights with a cross top and converses. However this is what I treated myself to!

The purple jumper I had to go back and get the black version! If you love a chunky knit I definitely recommend this jumper! Surprisingly very warm as well.

Cath Kidston was purely a free gift which I couldn't believe! They were having a student lock in and if you found the ticket (one in the image) you received an item corresponding to that ticket, and I won a purse. YAY!

I have to say the item in the Disney bag was/is/forever will be my favourite purchase! £10 for this little bugger! He's adorable! To add to my pug obsession, like many girls, I love Disney!

And finally to get myself through winter, I indulged in some shoes (Primark) I'm unable to wear until January and a lovely fur hat! (Accessorize)

That my lovelies, that is all. More than likely adding a part two as I'm currently full of cold and just craving sleep!

Daily Makeup

For weeks I've been contemplating writing a make up post, except every morning when I'm getting ready I can just never find the time to take a couple of quick photos! However today I've had a lazy day and thought no I'm going to finally write a post for my dear followers!
Some people just wear eyeliner and mascara for their eye make up and believe that the smokey eye look is only suitable for the night or going out. However I've recently been watching the new season of glee and I have to say I love Rachel Berry's eye make up! (Yes I'm a gleek!) So that has kind of inspired me to try something new and go for her look!
