My Day in London plus Nails of the Day

Hello Lovelies,

Yesterday I had a very long and tiring day in London due to having appointments at either end of the day and nothing to do in between. I ended having an explore and wander around some of my favourite parts of London. 

I started out in Covent Garden and stumbled across a really cute bead shop called Beadworks. I could have spent a fortune but I only bought a few bits that I needed, although I did buy this cute little guy just because he was so cute!

My second appointment was over in Shepherds Bush so I decided to head over a little early so I could have a browse around Westfield. I wasn't intending to buy anything but then I remembered the Models Own Bottle Shop... They have a special deal at the moment if you buy 3 or 6 bottles of polish you get their current best seller, which is the Hed Kandi Ibiza Mix, for free! Well I could never pass up free glitter so I gave in and got a three pack.

I chose Peaches & Cream, Lemon Meringue Pie and Purple Blue Bettlejuice. 

I can't wait to try out all three, especially the pastel orange and yellow but I had to try the Ibiza Mix. I used Rimmel 60 Second Sky High as a base coat and then dabbed on the Ibiza Mix so I could get a good mixture of the dots and hexagon glitters. I then decided to use my Rimmel Matte Top Coat and I love the effect it has given. Its mush more subtle so perfect for day time. What do you think?

My last little treat to myself was 2 jumbo eye crayons from L.A. Colors. I loved the colours and shimmer and the fact that they were only 99p each made it all the better. The gold is really vibrant and strong with a good amount of shimmer but my favourite is the white/blue pencil. The picture doesn't really show the colour very well but it is almost a clear base with blue/purple sparkles in it. I imagine it would glow under ultraviolet light!

What do you think of my little treats?
