Nails of the Day – Eek Nails

Before popping off on holiday I gave myself an ‘eek’ polish…

I’ve loved them ever since Sophy Robson did them all those months ago. I didn’t have a white polish which is why I hadn’t tried it sooner, but I picked up a cheapy Collection 2000 white for french manicures at the weekend, so there was no stopping me – this is my second set 🙂

They were very easy to do – just painted my nails as usual (this is Topshop AWOL), and added a layer of Seche Vite. Once that was dry I carefully dabbed on two dots of white near to my nail bed for the eyes, then using my black striper and dotter, dotted on a black pupil. I had to wait for a couple of minutes before adding another layer of Seche Vite – otherwise the black will run as I discovered with my Sunday ‘eek’s!

I think these are great fun, and my kids love them too! What do you think?

Please note – this is a scheduled post, I will reply to any comments when I’m back from holiday x

Nails of the Day – Topshop AWOL

I first saw this on Stina’s Chic Beauty Blog and loved it, it was like no other blue I had seen before. When I saw her in the flesh wearing it, I loved it even more – it was so bright, powerful and glossy! Every time I went into a Topshop I’d have a look, hoping… but alas never finding. They do do another blue (Pie In The Sky I believe), but that is not to be mistaken for AWOL.

I finally found it in the Enfield branch and am so very pleased with my purchase. I’m loving the neon nail trend at the moment, and this is as neon as a royal blue can get!

It has chipped a little after one day but I have been doing lots of lifting, washing and diying so it’s only to be expected. Highly recommend it!
