Hi there! Today’s post is not just a Nail Of The Day post.
It’s also the last post for this week which means that Nail Week has come to an end.
Anyhoo… for this mani I painted my nails with Fearne Lola Lavender (2 coats).
I think this is a great quality polish. It’s almost a one-coater, and it dries quickly.
The top coat I used is Models Own Jack Frost (1 coat). I found this beautiful holographic glitter polish at one of the Poundstores – what a bargain!
It was impossible to capture this holographic beauty in a single photo – but in real life this top coat looks stunning.

Hi there! I haven’t done a haul post since early January, so let me show you what I bought since then. 🙂
I bought 3 The Body Shop shower gels – Frosted Plum, Vanilla Chai and Frosted Berries. They were £2.50 each.
The Body Shop’s Atlas Mountain Rose Body Lotion was £2, the Early Harvest Raspberry Eau de Toilette was £5, and the Fijian Water Lotus Body Lotion was £2. I’ve already reviewed the body lotions – click here.
About 10 days later I placed another TBS order. This time I bought an Italian Summer Fig shower gel (£3), an Italian Summer Fig Eau de Toilette (£6), another Early Harvest Raspberry Eau de Toilette (£5), and a Polynesian Island Tiaré shower gel (£2).
I also picked up 3 Models Own flakie polishes – the names are Golden Shore, Red Sea and Aqua Splash. The polishes were £1.49 each (Superdrug, bargain bin).
I bought 2 Dr. Organic Body Washes – Aloe Vera & Manuka Honey. These were on sale (£1 each) at Holland & Barrett.
I also picked up a Dr.Organic shampoo & conditioner combo – Aloe Vera again! And I bought Sukin’s Purifying Shampoo. These 3 products were £1 each.
I bought Garnier’s Honey Flower Cleansing Milk + Toner. These products were on special (Save 1/3 at Superdrug’s), and they were £2.29 each. Superdrug’s Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Body Scrub was £1. It looks like the entire line is going to be discontinued. 😦
I fell in love with Caolion’s charcoal face soap, and I really want to try more products with charcoal. So I bought this massive 195g Yes To Tomatoes Soap. It was £4.99 (Holland and Barrett). I picked up 3 Superdrug face masks (Manuka honey, charcoal, Dead Sea clay). These were 99p each, but there was also a 3 for 2 deal, so I paid £1.98 for these 3 masks.
I also got 2 Skin Republic Spoil Yourself With Bubbles sheet masks. They’re £4.99 each, but they were a free gift with purchase (free when you buy 3 skin care products). I received 2 sheet masks because I bought 6 skin care items. 🙂
Oh, I also bought 2 new duvet cover sets. These were £14 each (king size) and I picked them up at my local Asda store (the photos are from Asda’s web site). Yes, this isn’t beauty related, but I’m so happy with the good quality of these sets that I wanted to say… if you’re looking for new duvet cover sets, you need to swing by your local Asda – they have dozens of amazing prints!
Back to the beauty stuff! Have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to try any of these products? Feel free to let me know your thoughts. And thanks for reading!

Hi there! Today’s post is the next chapter of the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge which I’m doing as a lifetime challenge.
This mani is challenge #22 Inspired By A Song. And – you may have guessed it already – that song is The Last Unicorn. 🙂
For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 311 Caramel Cupcake (accent nail = ring finger on the right hand) and Models Own Asscher Blue (the remaining 9 nails).
Asscher Blue is a poor quality polish. It dries extremely slow – and I had to apply four coats to get decent coverage. The Rimmel polish is fantastic – perfect brush, perfect formula, fully opaque in one easy coat.
The glitter polish I used to enhance the unicorn magic is NYC Expert Last 154 Midnight Confetti. This is a fantastic glitter polish – it looks great and despite being glittery, this polish feels perfectly smooth on my nails.
The unicorn on my ring finger is a decal – but you probably guessed that already. I only did an accent nail on my right hand. That’s because the song is about the last unicorn and not the last unicorns. So yes, all the nails on my left hand are blue and glittery.
How do you like this mani? I like it and I think it turned out better than I had expected. Feel free to let me know what you think. And thanks for stopping by!
