New China Glaze Purchases and NOTD :-)

Hi Ladies!

I popped into Sally's hair and beauty supplies the other day in search of an intensive hair mask (post about that coming up later!) and while I was there I noticed that the had a buy one get one half price offer on their China Glaze nail polishes. I have been umm-ing and ahh-ing over ruby pumps for literally yonks, so when I saw that there was only one bottle of ruby pumps left on the display I knew it was meant to be and that went straight in the basket! closely followed by c-c-courage, a polish from the wizard of oz collection. Here they are pictured below, c-c-courage on the left, and ruby pumps on the right.

Both of these are gorgeous, I'm usually pretty wary of glittery nail polishes but the sparkle in these is really subtle and pretty. I already have a couple of china glaze nail polishes and I think the quality and pigmentation of them is fab. I couldn't wait to try both of these out as soon as I got home so ruby pumps went straight on my fingers and c-c-courage went straight on my toes. Here is ruby pumps pictured below (sorry about the messy application - I was far too excited when applying this!) I didn't take a picture of my toes as i'm not too sure you'd enjoy a shot of my feet!

This photo doesn't really do this polish justice, I tried to get a good pic showing how lovely the sparkle is but I don't think my camera was up to the challenge! Hopefully it gives you some sort of idea though, this was taken after two coats and a top coat :-)

Thats all for now, hope you're having a lovely Easter weekend and get lots of chocolatey treats!
