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!

Pretty, Pretty Purple!

Hello! Sorry for the massive silence over the last week or so. It was mainly due to the fact I lost my camera charger, mainly due to the fact one of my pens exploded and stained my entire left hand black, and mainly because I'm bored of the nail polishes I have and haven't really been wanting to wear any.

I found my camera, so I decided to break out another holo, this time China Glaze Octagon Wild.

Who'd have thought you could get sick of holos, ey?

In natural light:
 
In artificial light:


Looks pretty, right? This polish is a pain in the arse to apply, and it's starting to peel of my index finger already! However, even my dad said how much he liked this colour, and trust me, he's not the type to comment on nail varnish! So I guess it's worth it. It also reminds me a lot of DS Original, but with more chunky particles.

Thanks for reading!

Oh...

I forgot to add, guess who bought some Bundle Monster plates? Yay!

From now on I am officially on the hunt for amazing silver, gold and bronze polishes that are good for stamping. So if you know of any then please, please, please let me know!

My First Zoya Purchase

Today has been such a rubbish day. Everything has gone wrong, things I say keep being taken totally out of context and I seriously can't seem to get anything right. To add to that, I'm having a bad hair day and a bad face day, my skin has gone all dry over night and I just generally feel really awful.

On the plus side, I'm trying out my newest purchase and I love it! This is Zoya Reva! Reva is a raspberry red colour with tons of copper-gold shimmer. It's just lovely.


I was out in the garden, so I thought I would take advantage of the last bit of sunlight to try and show you the amazing shimmer, in the nice green grass of course, because everyone does (or should!) like grass:




I love this polish. Really. I do have a teeny bit of tip wear, but that's more to do with the topcoat I used (damn you Nubar!) and not wrapping my tips, but I'll remember that for next time.

Thanks for reading,

Amy.
