Sunday Polish - Bloody Halloween!

Barry M - Black
Essie - Really Red

With Halloween nearly upon us, I thought I would co-ordinate a relevant nail feature for this weeks #SundayPolish 
I've always wanted to try two tone faded polish, and this was my chance.
Red & Black for a 'bloody' inspired effect.
Start with a black nail base and using a cheap makeup sponge, dab on red nail varnish starting from the tips of the nails and working down till about half way. 
Simple as that, looks great and super easy.

Happy Spooking ;)

Fragrant Favourites

My perfume collection. 
I am somewhat particular when it comes to those all important fragrances. It takes a while for me to find that something special, and I guess you can tell which ones I've had the longest. ;) 
Perfume for me adds that extra special touch no matter what the occasion. My going out scents therefore, are those I also rely on for everyday. But I guess as much as I would like to tell myself its all about the scents, I can't deny the beauty that is the bottle it comes in.

My go to scents are light and floral with a hint of sweetness (to too sickly mind!). I like little elegant, almost musty punches....nothing too strong but enough to be noticeable.

The collection so far consists of:
Vera Wang - Princess
Nina - Nina Ricci
Flowerbomb - Viktor & Rolf
Chanel - Chance eau Tendre

Sunday Polish - No. 7

No.7 Midnight Blue
Rimmel - Soul Session

Ultra modern nails inspired by Estee Lauder.
First of all isn't the Rimmel Soul Session Polish just gorgeous?! Three coats of this would make a great opaque nude, or just one or two coats (like here) for a finer, slightly transparent finish. 
The dots at the base create a uber stylist but elegant and simplistic finish.....they are equally easy to create. Link many of you out there, I do not own a dotting tool and therefore rely on the rounded end of a bobby pin. Dip the end in a little polish, and 'dot' onto the nail in the desired spot. Simple as that, I Promise!
