Birthdays Should Always Mean McQueen
These photos were taken months ago (on my birthday in April in fact!) and I forgot to publish them. I’ve not really done any fashion or outfit posts on my blog before as on a day to day basis I wear black jeans and grey/black tops. It doesn’t make for a terribly interesting read!
Essie Head Mistress, L’Oreal Confetti Top Coat
Red, black and white is just such a good combination. This manicure gives me so much pleasure. ‘Head Mistress’ is a beautiful dark raspberry creme polish from the Stylenomics collection. It’s not unusual or different to other polishes I own, but I have really fallen in love with it.
This is topped with L’Oreal’s ‘Confetti’ top coat: a clear polish with a mixture of large, medium and small black and white hex glitter with tiny holographic particles mixed into it. I got this for my birthday, I had wanted it for ages but it was sold out in every Boots I went to. So glad that I finally have it – it is lovely! The only thing I don’t like about it is that it dries matte (which some people might like about it) – I have other glitter polishes like this and don’t find them a problems as I top everything with Seche Vite anyway. BUT this is SO top coat thirsty. The above photos show this polish with 2 coats of Seche Vite. Two!! And it still looks a bit matte. I can forgive it though, as it’s so pretty.
You can buy essie Head Mistress HERE and the L’Oréal Confetti top coat HERE.
OPI ‘An Affair In Red Square’
This is another of my birthday polishes, a gorgeous red shimmery polish which was originally in the Russian collection, but has now made it into the permanent inner circle of OPI Classics. And you can see why!
This is one of my lovely birthday nail polishes. The first word to spring to mind is…. ‘unnnnnph’. LOVE.
