Christmas Day Nails 2014

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

Red Letter Day Means Red Carpet Treatment!

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

Moments Til Midnight!

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.

OMG! A Golden Ticket!!

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.
