January MeeBox - Blackberry Margarita

Helloo! Today I have the January MeeBox to show you. I received December's box shortly before leaving for my holiday, so was unable to post my unboxing. If you want to see what was inside the Ice Queen themed box, check out Kirsty from FairyTales Nails post here. January's MeeBox theme is 'Blackberry Margarita', with contents inspired by the cocktail. Read on for a closer look at everything inside!

KBShimmer 'Snow Much Fun'

Hi lovelies! Today I have KBShimmer 'Snow Much Fun' to show you. This is the first KBShimmer polish that I have worn, and was featured in part two of my U.S. haul here. Even though it's not been snowing here in Cardiff, I thought I'd wear this while I could just about get away with the snowflake glitters. Read on to find out more!

China Glaze 'Break The Ice' (Celebration Mani)

Hi lovelies! Today I have a nice quick post for you. I've been really loving Pretty Serious 'Snugglebutt' (post here) so much that I haven't wanted to take it off! Instead of forcing myself to remove it, I decided to add a fun glitter topper. I had my mind set on one of two polishes and ended up going for China Glaze 'Break The Ice' (featured in my U.S mainstream haul here). I also went for this as a cheeky celebration mani as I've reached 1000 followers on Instagram, yay! As always, read on to find out more!

Pretty Serious Cosmetics 'Snugglebutt'

Hi lovelies! I've got a nice simple post for you today. In the second part of my U.S. haul (post here), I featured my first Pretty Serious Cosmetics polishes. I couldn't decide which one to wear until I saw Zenorah's (@Zenorahslife) Instagram post with 'Snugglebutt' as her #wearitwithme Wednesday polish. I've been wanting to participate in her hashtag for a while so I jumped at the chance! Here is my swatch of Pretty Serious 'Snugglebutt'. Read on to find out more!

U.S. Haul Part 2 - Indies (Nine Zero Lacquer, Pretty Serious etc)

Helloo! I'm back for part two of my giant U.S. haul (see part one here). I was initially going to do two posts - one for mainstream and one for indies. However I have nearly double the indie polishes as I did mainstream. As my mainstream post was quite long itself, I've decided to split my indie haul into two separate posts. Here's a sneak peak at what I have to show you today. Read on for the brands and names of each polish!

Nine Zero Lacquer 'Twinkle Lights'

Hi everyone! Today I actually have a new mani to show you! I did admit on Instagram a few days ago that I'd had the same polish on for over 2 weeks (post here). My massive haul of polishes was so overwhelming that I couldn't choose which one to use! I finally sat down and decided on finding something sparkly, and picked out Nine Zero Lacquer 'Twinkle Lights'. Read on to find out more!

U.S. Haul Part 1 - Mainstreams (OPI, China Glaze etc)

Hello my lovelies! I hope you're all having a good weekend. I've finally decided to sit down and haul some of my U.S. goodies for you! I have 70+ bottles of polish in my suitcase - way too many to try and squeeze into one post. I've decided to split into mainstream and indie polishes, and then by brand. Today I'm showing you the all of the mainstream polishes I came back with. I ended up with 25 full size bottles and 1 mini. Read on for names and pictures of each polish!

Santa's Secret Sack Unboxing (Unsacking?)

Hello lovelies! While I'm slowly unpacking all of my polish goodies I thought I'd start off with the unboxing/unsacking of my Santa's Secret Sack - a mystery sack of indie Christmas polishes, organised by Jen from SuperChic Lacquer. The polishes were wrapped so nicely inside a gorgeous red velvet sack that I couldn't bring myself to open them. I actually went my whole holiday and even came home without knowing what was inside!

How cute are all of the individually wrapped polishes?! Hopefully someone somewhere will understand why I couldn't open them straight away - or am I just weird? I also avoided looking at the business cards as to keep the brands a surprise! Read on to find out what was inside after I finally caved in and unwrapped them all!

If you are considering starting a blog or have lost your blogging mojo, this will be the perfect post for you! Read on to see what Timea has to say.

Hi guys, my name is Timea, and I'm behind “rampartnails”. I very bravely took the opportunity to guest blog for the lovely Becca, while she is on vacation (I hope you have a wonderful time sweet!) While I'm working on starting my own blog, I would like to share a few thoughts with you, I hope you like it!

To do or not to do? That is my question...
