Hi there! Happy Monday! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today.
For this mani I painted my nails with Primark Holler & Glow Pink Unicorn (pinkies, ring fingers, 2 coats). This polish is described as a long wear polish. And guess what, it is! I “use” my nails a lot, and I only had very minor tip wear after 3 days. Truly impressive stuff!
I used Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats) on my middle and index fingers and my thumbs. This is supposed to be a long-lasting polish too, but I had to fill in the tips every day.
For the images I used MoYou London‘s Suki 16 plate and (since it was right there) Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin.
The gold glitter topper I used is the gorgeous Ciaté Putting On The Ritz which has been sititing in my stash for ages. Yes, I regret not trying it sooner!
I liked this mani. Since I had zero inspiration, it was supposed to be a “filler mani”, but it turned out much better than expected.
What nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Hi there! Since I’ve been shopping a lot lately, I thought I’d let you know what I got my hands on. It’s mainly stuff from the bargain stores and discounted gift sets from the post-Christmas sale. OK, here’s everything I picked up!
Thierry Mugler Aura gift set –£32.66. Debenhams.
Max & More No. 4 Nude Eyeshadow Palette – £2. I haven’t heard of Max & More, so I looked up the brand… apparently it’s a cruelty-free brand from the Netherlands. Fantastic stuff!
Max & More No. 1 Forest Eyeshadow Palette – £2. I found these palettes at Poundland.
Primark Holler And Glow Nails Before Tails Nail Polish Set – £4.
Patisserie De Bain Raspberry Roulade Hand Cream, Orange Crush Hand Cream – £1 each.
Patisserie De Bain Sweet As Cherry Pie Body Mist – £1.
The Patisserie De Bain products are Poundland finds!
Lisseau Cocoa Body Butter – 80p.
Liseau Vanilla Body Butter – 80p.
These body butters are from Poundstretcher!
YSL Cinéma Eau de Parfum – £31.50 (half price offer, Debenhams).
Malki Dead Sea Natural Sulphur Soap x2, £3.75 each and a 3 for 2 offer, so I am pretty annoyed that Boots forgot the 3rd item – but I have dropped them an email, and I hope they send me the missing Dead Sea soap asap.
The Crème Shop Santa’s List Charcoal Sheet Mask (pack of 5) – £4.99.
The Crème Shop Pumpkin Spice Fusion Sheet Mask (pack of 5) – £4.99.
These masks are from TK Maxx!
The Crème Shop Last Christmas Naughty & Nice Sheet Masks (pack of 6, 3 Naughty and 3 Nice masks) – £5.99.
TK Maxx, again.
The Crème Shop Holiday Cheer & Clear Sheet Masks (pack of 6, 3 Naughty and 3 Nice masks) – £5.99.
Yup, they’re from TK Maxx as well.
Valjean Labs Revive + Renew Day Serum And Sleeping Mask Duo – £9.99.
Another TK Maxx find!
Sanctuary Spa gift set – £7. Boots.
Another Sanctuary Spa gift set. This one contains a shower gel, luxury bath float, body butter and hand cream. These are all full sizes. I’m sorry I haven’t opened this one yet. 1 at a time! This set was £12.50. Boots.
Sanctuary Spa gift set number 3 – £10. Yes, Boots again.
Soap & Glory Clean On Me and Scrub Of Your Life. These came in a gift set with…
… Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter, Hand Food and 2 bath bombs. I am not going to use the bath bombs. They’re glittery. I’ll give them to the first person who wants them. The gift set with all 6 products was £10. Boots.
Creightons Hand Creams – Argan Oil, Cocoa Butter, Manuka Honey. I am not sure how much these were, but I’ll check the next time I swing by Home Bargains.
2 more Patisserie De Bain Hand Creams – these were £1 each. Poundland.
Boots No.7 gift set – this set contains all sorts of goodies. It was £39 (better than half price offer before the sale even started). Boots.
And finally… I bought 2 more George at Asda duvet cover sets. They’re king size, and they were £14 each. I love these designs! However, I need to stop buying duvet cover sets. I bought 6 over the past year, and even though I got rid of all the old (very old, actually) duvet cover sets, I have more than enough now.
*** By the way, please remember not to dispose of unwanted textiles of any kind (clothes, towels, bedding, etc) with your household rubbish. Your local charity shop will gladly accept items in good condition, H&M and other high street stores run textile recycling schemes (H&M accepts clothes and household textiles like towels and bedding), and animal shelters are usually happy to accept towels and duvet covers (but not duvets as they’re difficult to clean and they can’t be recycled). ***
