Holidays are over :( here comes the hard work!

Cannot believe how long it has been since I last blogged. Feels like forever, although the nail painting hasn't had a break.

Holiday was wonderful, cannot believe how the English weather changed so suddenly to give us a wonderful summers week. Gave us the true break we needed to get away from all the stresses and strains of life and most importantly give us some quality time with our pup.

But onto the important business.

Throughout my time I did my nails a few times and unfortunately the best manicure I did I forgot to take pictures of! I know what an amateur. But, here are the few I did take pictures of...

Firstly Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Lively Lilac with a tip of Essence make Make it Golden

Then Models Own Aqua Violet which I loved, but it is really hard to photograph how pretty this is

Finally we have Catrice Absolute Chinchilly and Dior 886 New World Purple ( which is actually brown with a golden shimmer)

Also have a few newbies to announce aswell, and they are...

Three of the new Gelly collection from Barry M, they are Prickly Pear, Blood Orange and Blueberry.

Ruby Kisses Green Glitter and Fergie Wet and Wild Hollywood Walk of Fame in a swap with a lovely lady called Charlotte in America. ( the WnW is lots of little stars with hairy glitter)

Then we have three new Catrices, Iron Mermaiden which is a duochrome which turns from lilac to purple to golden green, Genius in a Bottle which is a golden green duochrome and Marilyn and me which is red with a sparkle, very similar to China Glaze Ruby Pumps, but not quite as deep red.

Then finally two Barry M crocs and a free white crackle from Superdrug. Although these never work from me after a talking to from Starrystarry on the forum I decided I should give it another go with some quality products.

Oh, and just to melt your hearts, here is the little chap we took on holiday... eating an ice cream ( please don't tell the vet)
