Glitter Nailpolish

Are you looking for the most amazing glitter nail polish and you just havent found it? Searching through all the chunky glitters, fine glitters, coloured glitters and sick of spending money on ridiculously expensive polishes... Well well, BYS I love you. I picked up this colour from a $2 Shop for $4. This is a super fine glitter and looks amazing over any colour, it's called Diamond Glitter Crystal (N342)

Please ignore my burnt finger, LOL

Nail Stickers

Sally Hansen - Salon Effects Nail stickers

I love having painted nails but always give up after three attempts of putting the polish on, whether it be sloppy application, ruining the nail when trying to clean it up or accidently touching something whilst they were still that tiny bit wet... 3 hours later and my nails look the same as when I started... Bare, Damn!

Helloooo nail stickers! These have been around for quite a while, but I had not gotten around to actually giving them a go, my mum bought these for me last week! I was in Queensland for a week, and considering I was at theme parks and water parks, they lasted almost a week in pretty good condition!

Amazing effects
Strengthens Nails
Lasts a few days
Cleaner finish than polish
Tricky to apply
Difficult to remove
Awkward sizing

Application; I was extremely confused when I opened the box, after messing up the first few nails I slowly got the hang of it. The pieces are odd sizing, so for smaller stickers you can slightly stretch them to fit your nail perfectly.
You peel the two layers off the sticker - The base and the clear protection - and attempt to fit it perfectly to your nail. Slowly file off the edge with the supplied file and 'tuck' the excess under the nail, this is what made my nails super strong and helped them last longer! Its very hard to explain the method, but you get a diagram with instructions in your little box, so hopefully you will be better at it than me!

Subtle Florals

Blury, but love this photo!
Just a quick outfit post today!

This lovely skirt is actually a hand-me-down from my friends Mum, can you believe it?! The fit on this piece is amazing, it has a thigh high slit down the left side which allows the skirt to flow amazingly, it is fitted around the waist and hips and falls very nicely. I love these boots from Inniu, great with skirts and jeans alike, they are very versatile.

What I wore;
Cardigan - Cotton On
Skirt - Gift
Scarf - Kmart
Boots - Inniu Shoes
Earrings and Cuff - Colette

Another Shoe Post

Rubi Shoes - Amber boot, $49.95
Neutral, Apricot and Black

I am quite a fan of Rubi Shoes and these boots are no exception. I love the chunky heel, fringe embellishment on the zipper and the amazing Apricot colour. Can you believe that they are comfortable? The insole feels like rubber and are therefore quite comfortable and although the heel height is 10cm they are the perfect everyday winter boot.

Even though the Apricot colour was gorgeous I decided to go with the black for ease of wear, these are perfect with jeans and go nicely with stockings too. A definate must for all you shoe lovers out there.
Neutral available here
Apricot available here
Black available here
