The Wedding draws ever closer and of course I want everything to be perfect for my daughter! I think I have found the perfect polish for her so that's a start. This is Ulta3 Pro in Tutu Pink a creamy delicate shell pink with a flash of bluey lilac and being from Ulta3 Pro range its a bit more expensive than their fashion range ($2) I mean a whole $5 whats not to love.
So the next step what to stamp, I love my ring finger on my left hand, but I also like my right thumb! I would love to wear this as well or the blue from last week which totally clashes in a good way (may be, possibly) with my dress, but as its my daughters Day I'm going to go with what she wants!
These are all images from Messy Mansion MM44 and Born Pretty QA65 using Mundo De Unas White and Kleancolor Metallic Black.

In just under two weeks my eldest daughter will be tying the knot! And I'm so excited, my daughter on the other hand is becoming more and more rattled by it all going exactly as microscopically planned down to the nth degree! I would love to use these blue nails as something blue, but it just maybe that tiny little bit too much out there, but I absolutely love them! To me they are just perfect.
On to my mani then two coats of the gorgeous Barry M Jelly Hi Shine in Blueberry just the most perfect blue to ever exist stamped with Messy Mansion MM44 using Mundo De Unas White.

A lovely dinner and then a not so good dance band (they really shouldn't have attempted Fleetwood Mac You Can Go Your Own Way amongst others). Anyway moving swiftly on to my mani which is what you are all here for after all.
Two coats of the luscious Pretty Serious Daphne After Dark (another polish from the Rooftop Soiree collection) being a perfect polish to mimic the night sky lit up by fireworks. Namely a charcoal with lots of small sparks of every colour under the rainbow! Just divine. And if that wasn't enough I stamped the clock, drinks and more fireworks from MoYou London Festive Collection 05 using Cult Nails Lethal my go to silver for everything.
A Happy And Prosperous New Year to you all, may it be peaceful. xx

I waited forever for my snowflake plate from MoYou London and it arrived just in time for me to have snowflake nails on Christmas Day, to remind me of the cold freezing cold Christmas's in the UK.
On to my mani then one coat of Ulta3 Seeing Red a sheer red to give my nails a pinkish hue. I then did freehand french tips using Ulta3 Lily White followed by one coat of Ozotic Beam 907 to add shimmer and sparkle and hide any imperfections in my french tips. And then the piece de resistance three snowflakes on each nail from MoYou London Festive Collection 02 using Cult Nails Lethal, Mundo de Unas white and #5 Turquoise. Topped off with a coat of Seche Vite. I thought my thumb nail was the best one though!
Merry Christmas Everyone x

Yes our red letter day, well weekend actually, was my daughter and her family spending the weekend with us so that we could have Christmas celebrations with the grandchildren. Father Christmas visited and my mani matched his coat, although the grandchildren did not get to see the perfect match. Unfortunately the time went by all too quick and they were gone leaving us both suffering from colds which the grandchildren were kind enough to share with us!
These photos don't seem to be showing the true sparkle that is Pretty Serious Red Carpet Treatment which is part of the Rooftop Soiree collection. This was three coats although two would have been more than enough. I was going for some serious bling here!
I would also like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year

I haven't worn glitter mani's for so long now, I've almost forgotten how striking they can be! After my Pretty Serious Golden Ticket mani I couldn't wait to try some more glitter polishes from the Pretty Serious Rooftop Soiree collection. So the first one out of the box is Moments Til Midnight which looks like being the Cinderella of the collection as I have not seen as many reviews of it and yet it is my favourite! I just love blue polish and this one is no exception. It's a wonderful navy blue jelly jam packed with different sized gold holographic hexes and is seriously gorgeous!
As you can see the sunlight has bled out all the rich colour from my photo but it doesn't do this in real life. (Might have to fiddle around with my camera settings grrr) So on to my mani then, two coats of Pretty Serious Moments Til Midnight followed by two coats of Seche Vite to make my mani glassy smooth.

Pretty Serious Cosmetics recently held a pre-sale event for their Rooftop Soiree Collection, which has six gorgeous glitter shades perfect for the forthcoming party season with each sure to match or enhance your party outfit. Oh Glitter! be still my beating heart. And if that wasn't enough Pretty Serious also released a Limited Edition of just 100 Evie's First Christmas a beautiful vibrant red with red and gold shimmer it looks just stunning in the bottle and I can't wait to wear it. But even more rare was the Limited Edition Golden Ticket randomly put into just 15 packages and guess what I was lucky enough to get one! I was super excited when I realized what it was and my work colleagues were also very interested to find out what all the fuss was about!
And I had the perfect occasion to wear it at our works Christmas Luncheon held at a stunning waterside location in Sydney. It was a perfect day. On to my mani then, two coats of Pretty Serious Golden Ticket followed by a Seche Vite top coat.
