Ciaté Mini Mani Month

20131201-161547.jpg

Before I get down to the nitty gritty, I would like to apologise for the lack of posts recently. It’s been a bit busy here in Germany with University, the German Market and My Mum also came to stay so I haven’t really found the time to sit down and write a post! But I am happy to say that for the next 24 days I will be posting every day! Me and Harry always give each other a present on the 1st December. I have no idea why, it might just be because we’re both impatient and need something to tide us over until christmas day. My present this year was the Ciaté Mini Mani Month Advent Calendar! So I thought everyday I would post a picture of the nail polish and how they look on my nails! Yes it means I have to paint my nails every day but I am more than happy to. There will also be other posts along with the Nail polish posts so don’t worry if you’re not a nail varnish fan!

So to start it off, todays nail varnish is Snow Globe! I thought as its a clear glitter polish I would layer it up over Barry M Blue Moon. Gives it a Snow Flake effect and gets me feeling all christmassy!

A/W 13 Colours

At the moment, everybody is embracing the changing of seasons and obsessing over darker, more rich tones and colours. Myself included.

Recently nail polish and lipsticks have been added by the masses to my make up collection and are all matching this time of year.  I’ve got my 9 nail polishes here, some I’ve used for the past couple of winters and some that are completely, brand new. My favourites have got to be Gris Underground, Sepia 7e Art from the YSL Fall collection and After School Boy Blazer. Gris Underground I find quite special because the use of the word Gris is actually quite deceptive. I was expecting just a grey nail polish but depending on the light it can look grey, blue or lilac. Sepia 7e Art is just a classic sophisticated colour and which is reflected in it’s name as it pays homage to Old French Cinema and in particular the times of the Nouvelle Vague. There’s not a lot I can say about After School Boy Blazer as every other beauty blogger on the internet has already said everything you can say about it. All I can say is, Navy blue! Hope you like my range of colours!
