And something else… look what I found in my stash!

I found a part-used Boots Botanics Firming Body Gel – this smells 100% fine, so I’ll use it up. It’s just enough for 2 two uses, so you’ll see this one again in the next Empties post. And I found a full bottle of those amazing Boots Botanics Hydrating Serum Capsules – JOY! And I found a tube of Boots’ Botanics Complexion Refining Clay Mask. This was my go-to clay mask before it was discontinued, so I’m happy that I found another tube in my stash!

And this is it for this week. I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Essence Aquatix 04 Under The Sea & Stamping With MoYou London Doodles 07 / Nail Art Challenge #13 Animal Print

Hi there! Today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post. And this mani is also my attempt at Animal Print nails which is challenge #13 of the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge.

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Aquatix 04 Under The Sea. This polish is supposed to be a holographic nail polish, but the holo effect isn’t very strong. And I would describe the actual colour of this polish as steel. Or steel-y. It’s neither grey nor blue.

The cute sea life images are featured on MoYou’s Doodles 07 stamping plate. The black polish I stamped with is NYC In A Minute 001 Evil.

I realise that the person who thought up the original 31 Days Nail Art Challenge thought of Animal Print nails as zebra or leopard nails (or something similar). But I didn’t want to do another animal stripes mani so soon. And sea creatures are animals too, so I think I’m OK. 🙂

I like this mani! The holo polish could be prettier, but the images are just too cute. What do you think? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!
