Thumbs nails of the week Rimmel 828 Danny Boy Blue

Thumbs nails of the week Rimmel 828 Danny Boy Blue

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

For today’s post I am sharing something blue on my nails.  I went for a cobalt blue polish from Rimmel named Danny Boy Blue ( 828).

I must say the color of this polish draws your eyes to your nails. I just think this color is a stunning blue and I must say my favorite kind of blue. For my nails I used 3 coats of polish. I am noticing that eventhough I used 3 coats that it is not as opaque as I want it to be. Which is a downside. Also my nails do not dry within 60 seconds as states on the bottle. That said the drying properties are not bad.   So what do you think of these nails?

Thumbs nails of the week Miss Sporty in 550

Thumbs nails of the week Miss Sporty in 550

Hi everybody,

For Thumbs Nails of the Week I opted for a Miss Sporty polish, in color 550. A rosey/mauvey like color.  I purchased this particular polish a couple of weeks ago and thought it was time to write about this polish. If you want to read about the other polishes I got, click here. Unfortunately in this time and space I somehow lost the polish and could not insert more photo’s. I would say its a gift misplacing things.

So lets get to my thoughts and opinion:

I really like the color. Its a beautiful rosey /mauvey color. Right up my alley. Also I like the wide brush tip. As I have some experience with these polishes I had to use 3 layers of polish to make it nice and opaque.

How do you like this look on my nails?

 

Please share any thoughts you have on the Miss Sporty polishes or leave a comment. Until the next post.

Thumbs nails of the week Miss Sporty haul

Thumbs nails of the week Miss Sporty haul

Welcome back dear readers and loyal subbies,

Today I am back with another haul for nails. The star of today’s post is Miss Sporty. I believe this brand is from the UK, but do correct me if I am wrong! This nail polish is very nostalgic to me because this is one of the first nail polishes I used when I was about 11. I used to be in love with this pearly color.

This brand is so affordable and the most expensive polish was €2.49. Because it is fall/ and soon to be winter I wanted some fall colors and I was a little curious how these would perform after so many years of not using these polishes.


In total I purchased six polishes and one base coat. A peel off base coat to be very specific. But enough written,let me tell you which polishes I purchased. I will write these polishes down from left to right.

  • Miss Sporty Lasting Color Nail Polish in 550 Don’t brick my dream €2.49. Now this is a lovely rosey color, a mix between pink and red.
  • Miss Sporty Lasting Color Nail Polish in 035 €2.49 This is a nice purple color. Its not really a very dark purple but a middle purple. Very appropriate for winter time.
  • Miss Sporty Lasting Color Nail Polish Gel Shine in 556 €1.99. Aaa the love affair continues with the nude colors. This is a taupe leaning more to brown color. I don’t believe I have a color like this in my collection. But I might be wrong.
  • Miss Sporty Lasting Color Nail Polish in 151 Red €2.49 This red is a darker toned red than the next polish. However this does remind me of Tanya Burrs red polish in Riding Hood.
  • Miss Sporty Lasting Color Nail Polish in 150 Red €2.49 This red is a blue toned red very Christmassy!
  • Miss Sporty Lasting Color Nail Polish in 80 Black €2.49. I cannot give any other specs on it than its black
  •  Miss Sporty Peel off base coat€ €2.49.

Thumbs nails of the week haul

Hi dear readers and loyal subbies,

After a week of radio silence, I am finally back with a quick little nail and feet haul. I thought my little hands and feet deserved a little pampering so I went online and purchased some goodies. I know it should be all about the nails but I think feet care or a.k.a hoof care ,is essential!

So lets get through my little stack.

Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Foot File

So my feet were really bad.  My boyfriend has softer feet than I do!  That is just so embarrassing. So I was contemplating purchasing this foot file for a long time. And after seeing my sis buying this file and loving it , she persuaded me to buy it. This is just such good alternative to doing your feet manually with a foot file. So if you have a little cash to splurge its worth it.

Scholl Velvet Smoot Callous cream

To take care after I have filed my feet, I bought the Scholl Velvet Smooth Callous cream I am hoping I will get nice soft feet after I use  this cream. But we shall see.

Finishing with the cream concludes my haul. I hope you enjoyed this petite haul and would love to see you back soon If you liked this blog or these types of posts, please like or subscribe to my blog or follow me on BlogLovin.

Thumbs nails of the week Essie ‘not just a pretty face’

Thumbs nails of the week Essie ‘not just a pretty face’

Hi everybody,

I am back for another installment of Thumbs nails of the week. Today I am writing this post on a very grey and rainy day cuddled up on my couch. I had to do some grocery shopping and it was just horrible. Getting soaked by very fine baby rain which I underestimated. Therefore I needed some cheering up by using a pretty polish when I got in.

wpid-20150531_213202.jpg

Because of my Essie haul two-three weeks ago, I went for the polish ‘ Not just a pretty face’. And this polish is not just a pretty face, it is a beautiful baby pink and has a nice sheen too it. We sometimes write about lipsticks ‘your lips but better’ well this is the feeling I have about this polish. Underneath our nails there is pinky skin and this polish just emphasizes that.

wpid-20150531_213339.jpgwpid-20150531_213457.jpg

When painting my nails I did use three coats to get an opaque colour and to make the baby pinky really pop. Again this polish dries really quickly. Once again I would say this polish is very appropriate for the office but compared to the other nudes I went for in the past, it has pinky tones instead of the taupey/brownish tones.

I can honestly write I don’t regret purchasing this polish. It has a lovely clean look.

Hope you enjoyed this post. If you like these types of posts check out last weeks Thumbs nails.

Thumbs, nails of the week Essie


My dear dear readers,

This week I am back again with Thumbs nails of the week. It seemed that several readers really liked the last installment of Thumbs nails so I will continue writing this blog series

So this time I am sharing another nude polish.This time it’s Essie’s Sand Tropez. I am sorry but I am just a big sucker for nudes. I had an important meeting this week so I did not want to be all in your face with the nails.

I have to admit this polish was similar to last weeks polish, only this is a lot more gray toned. Essie polishes offer good coverage and I used two layers of polish for this look. Can I also say I love the names Essie gives their polishes. They definetly get the award for cute names☺. The only downside I have  with this polish is the drying time compared to the Rimmel 60 scnds polish. If you want to read last weeks Thumbs nails of the week click here.

Thumbs, nails of the week Rimmel style

Thumbs, nails of the week Rimmel style

Hi everybody,

I am back with a new blog post. Thumbs nails of the week. In this post I will be sharing the nail polish I have chosen to wear for this week.

This week t’s all about Rimmel London 60 Seconds Super Shine Polish in Caramel Cupcake(500).

wpid-20150406_135524.jpgwpid-20150406_135724.jpg

Can I just say, I love this colour. This is a beautiful nude colour and has a browny/pinky glow to it. This is a very gorgeous and very sophisticated polish and  I would wear  this sort of polish for a job interview or going to an elegant event, like a wedding perhaps. As the name states it has a shiny look to it so I don’t think I would need a top coat for this polish.

This is the first time I am wearing this polish so I can’t give an opinion about it’s wear .
All I can say I am in love  with the look and feel of this polish. I am hoping that this polish will end up in one of my monthly favourites.
