A Wheel Load of Pink

A Wheel Load of Pink

This has been sitting in my “to-post” pile since last month, when I spent the weekend looking after my poorly partner with nothing to amuse me but a whole load of pinks and neutrals. For my sister’s baby shower I had intended to do pink manicures and take a wheel of simple designs with me to inspire people. Sadly, I never got to do that, but I did the wheel of designs anyway. Except I didn’t go in for the simple so much, with a lot of them.

Sunday Stash: More October Purchases

There’s a reason why November needed to be a No-Buy month. I approximated I bought 32 polishes in October, and I don’t even want to think about how much money that came to. But I did get some tremendous bargains, as I mentioned last week. Here are a few more!

October Gig Nails, Prairie Charms Hair Slide and Little Mix Nail Wraps

October Gig Nails, Prairie Charms Hair Slide and Little Mix Nail Wraps

This post is quite picture heavy! If you’ve peeked at my very brief bio on the About Me page then you’ll know that I’m in a band called Pitchbend. We play covers of a great variety of music from ZZ Top to Lady GaGa, all with generally a soul and blues feel. I love dressing up for gigs – I particularly love my very high platform heels! I bought a new pair from New Look recently but I wasn’t brave enough to perform in them at my gig at the weekend. I need more practice in them!

This was my first foray into wearing false nails. I love the idea of false nails – no clean up on your nails, instant length, no sitting around waiting hours for them to dry. Wearing them on the other hand, turns out to be quite difficult. These are “European Short Nails” from eBay, and if you’ve got little nails like me, then they are *not* short. (More after the jump!)
