Filofax and Nails.

Hi loves! 
I hope you're all doing great! Who's enjoying the half term? 

Today I have a pretty simple mani, super fall inspired with the rich polish and touch of gold. I got inspired by my new addition, a filofax Malden in Ochre. A special present from the hubs. It arrived today and I fell in love! 
I really fancied wearing a dark chocolate/wine shade after recieving the filofax, I wasn't super sure on the exact polish but had an idea in my mind ;). I actually didn't have a rich dark chocolate in my collection but fell upon this beauty. I am totally blown away by this polish by GlamPaint Lacquer, I'll start on the pictures so you can see. 

Don't they go so well together! This picture screams fall to me. 

Kim | A stunning deep Merlot with fabulous application, the first was quite sheer but the second coat evened it all out. On some people they made need 3 coats but 2 was enough for me. 

I did the art with gold paint and used GlamPaint Lacquer Matte Topcoat. 

I really loved the outcome on my thumb so enjoy 2 more pictures :) 

Anyone else love filofax? Or planners /organisers in general? I seem to be more into them now as I have a tonne of dates needing remembered since little man started school lol.

Halloween Candy & Jack Skellington.

Hi loves,
Phew! I'm finally back(ish)! It's been insane here with me and the kids being ill, after a rough 2 weeks I'm still not fully okay but good enough. 

Halloween is approaching so fast! I've really not been in the huge halloween spirit this year, but managed just another mani to atleast get done before the day :) 
I actually really love this mani, it's not creepy but super duper cute instead! 

I stumbled upon this on FB whilst late night browsing, it's actually a tattoo style page I found it on - name forgotten sorry! I thought it was so sweet looking and easily transferable into nail art. 

My kids totally loved this version of Jack Skellington as do I! 

For this mani I used Sally Hansen Black Platinum, W7 Little Black Book along with acrylic paints. 

Are you all set for Halloween? My kids have chosen to go as a Zombie and a Black Cat. :)
