Totally nothing to do with nail varnish, but...

I saw this video this morning, and I must have watched it about 50 times already. It's so adorable, but so mean!

Another Day, Another Attempt

I got bored and decided to have another go with my Konad stuff. This is Rimmel Black Satin (which only cost me 79p, bargain!) stamped over OPI Glitzerland. I'm really loving this combination!



Also, in other news, I got my laptop back today ^_^ It feels so weird, and so huge compared to my netbook. It looks good as new now, too. The only bad thing is that while it was being fixed, PC World wiped everything off my laptop :( and they lost my charger in the process too. But oh well, I'll sort it out eventually!

Konad

This was my first attempt at stamping with Konad, I was just playing around and did it over the nail varnish I already had on. I used the M57 plate, with Zoya Raven stamped over Zoya Gilda. It wasn't the best polish to stamp with, but it's all I had. I'm going to spend the next few hours trying to find out which are best to use. I'm undecided about buying Konad special polishes, because I won't be able to use them for anything else but stamping (afaik!) but we'll see.

Anyway, here are the results!




I really like it! The Konad image plates are a much better size for me than the Bundle Monster ones. I'll definitely be getting some more image plates in the not too distant future.

I'M SO ANGRY!

But I am also the best sister ever.

My brother (who is 18) came home this afternoon is a major rage, saying that he'd been paying for something in the corner shop and handed over two £20 notes folded up by accident. He didn't notice until he'd gone out of the shop and when he went back to tell the cashier about it, they guy told him that he hadn't only given him one and to ''just do one.'' My brother goes in there all the time and he's really not the type to lie about things like that.

So, I went over to the shop to sort it out, asked the guy what had happened who was adamant that he'd only been given £20. Anyway, long story short, I said that I wanted to see the boss and that I wanted them to let me know what they'd cashed up for the evening so I could go back and talk to them again. I went back, the owner (the cashier's dad) said they were out by £20, so my brother was right all along. That or it was a freaky coincidence.

I'm so pleased that I got the money back for my brother, and that at least one person at the shop was honest, but I'm fucking fuming that the guy on the till lied to my face about making sure there was only one note there and making a massive point about saying that he unfolds and smooths out every note every time to make sure he's been given the right amount.

Zoya Charla

I'm trying out some of my new polishes! Today I picked Zoya Charla and I just love it. It's a beautiful turquiose-blue colour with green glitter. It's so pretty, my photos do not do is justice!

In artificial light:
In natural light (but no sun, sadly!)
Ahhhhh, I just love it. It's my birthday next week so as one of my presents my mum and dad have given me some money to buy more Zoya nail varnish and get it shipped over from America. Can't wait!

Thanks for reading!

The Amazing Package I Recieved This Morning!

I signed up for a nail polish exchange, called Secret Astronaut this time, on tPF all the way back in April. Last week my partner/little alien got her parcel, and today the postman brought me mine!

Here they all are, lined up together in their cute space themed wrapping paper:

My amazing Secret Astronaut was Brandy!
Trust me, it took a lot of work opening all these goodies! :)

The first ones I opened were these, Today Was A Fairytale and Boom Boom Pow by Deborah Lippmann. I've been lusting after these for ages and I was so shocked and surprised, and thrilled that she picked out both of them for me!
Next up is NYC Starry Silver Glitter, which looks lovely and is in keeping with the space theme!
Then I opened these and four Zoyas popped out! I am so thrilled with these!!! I don't know if any of you noticed, but yesterday I made a list of all the Zoya polishes I liked best. It just so happens that Valerie, Sarah and Charla were at the top of my wishlist! I think my SA must secretly be psychic!

I also got a emery board, some hand cream and hand gel.
I am absolutely overjoyed with everything that Brandy sent me, I really am. I can't wait to try everything out!

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a lovely day!

Amy.
