Nails of the week: Sinful Colors Cinderella


I noticed the Sinful Colors stand in boots last week. I have heard them mentioned on some US based blogs in the past but this was the first time I saw them in the UK and considering the minuscule £1.99 price tag thought it was worth trying them out. I got 2 shades - Boogie Nights and Cinderella.

I tried on Cinderella last night. It is a gorgeous cream baby blue colour with fine pink and gold glitter through it. I am very impressed with the colour payoff - I managed to get the bottle colour after only 2 coats although the polish is not as smooth as I would like - the shimmer seems to leave the texture somewhat grainy. With a decent top coat over it though the polish is smooth as Cinderella's glass slippers! Oh dear. That was a terrible attempt to be funny. I don't even know if her glass slippers were smooth. Maybe they were a frosted glass. Or an engraved glass even. Anyways I am going off on a tangent. Back to the polish.

The packaging looks much more high end than I would expect for a bargain nail polish - a glass bottle with a matte black lid. The brush is a decent size too and you can easily cover a nail in 3 strokes.

Your £1.99 gets you 15ml of product and considering the quality of the polish I would say that's a definite bargain!
Overall I am impressed with Sinful Colors and will definitely be picking up some more of these soon.

Do you have any beauty bargain recommendations?

Outfit Of the Day: Luxe Leopard


These boots most definitely not made for walking! I love these so much but they are the most painful boots I have ever owned! :(

Dress - Similar here (warehouse)
Vest - Primark
Pendant - Primark
Tights - M&S
Boots - similar here (ASOS)

I wore this outfit to go out for drinks a few nights ago but I forgot to take pictures until I got home - which is why my hair looks slightly disheveled. lol 
I love wearing quite a plain outfit with some statement heels and these leopard print ankle boots definitely fit the bill!
I think that black, gold and leopard is such a classic colour/pattern combo that you can wear it any season and still look stylish no matter what the current trends are.
This dress is simple, comfy and flattering - all the check boxes are ticked! I love the gold detailing on the dress as it is subtle enough that you only notice it if the light hits it.

What is your favourite statement piece to jazz up an otherwise plain outfit?
