NOTD China Glaze Touch Of Glamour Nail Polish

The current nail polish that I am sporting is China Glaze Touch Of Glamour Nail Polish. It's a very pretty pale gold colour, another one that is perfect for every day wear. It's perfectly understated but makes your nails look well cared for. I think it would look even better on tanned skin or on darker skin tones. A perfect colour for summer!!

China Glaze is my new obsession;) What's yours?

Scary and Cute

A few weeks ago my local pet shop had face painting and baloon modelling to mark the reopening of the refurbished store. I think the girl who did the face painting is probably the best I have ever seen. My son got a scary monster:

and my daughter got a cute bunny rabbit:)

I passed up the offer to have mine painted lol

Prize Draw Winner

Sorry this has taken me a while to do. It's not like it was difficult, I only had 4 people who entered, I just didn't have the time until now:)

Altogether I had 4 people entering. 1 person blogged and tweeted about it and therefore got 3 entries and 1 person tweeted about it for 2 entries. This afternoon I wrote the entries out, folded them up and got my daughter to draw the winner from my hand:)

So without further ado the winner is nicolacc2008:)

You can just about make out my writing on this piece of paper.
Well done to Nicola and thanks to everyone who entered.
Nicola can you email your address to so that I can post your prize.

China Glaze Ruby Pumps

Sorry this is a day later than I promised but here is what China Glaze Ruby Pumps looks like on toes:) It's a beautiful deep red and less sparkly than Good Witch? This was achieved with only 1 coat over a base coat. I think it's lovely and perfect for summer:)

I will be doing my prize draw in the next few days. There were only 4 entries so it won't take long sorting it out:)

A Sneak Peak at Good Witch?

As you may or may not know, I am having a giveaway of 3 of the Wizard of Oz nail polishes from China Glaze. I hope to do a few posts on what they look like on before I give them away. I bought myself the same ones, so don't worry, the prizes will be brand new and unopened.

The first one I have tried is Good Witch?

It's a beautiful pink colour with glitter in it. If you don't like the feel of glitter then these polises are not for you. I have used a base coat and applied 2 coats of Good Witch? to get the coverage seen. 1 coat is pretty good but it does take 2.

The first thing I noticed about this polish was how quickly it dries. I haven't tried any other China Glaze polishes so I'm not sure if they all do this but Good Witch? dried rock hard in record time. Normally I have to be careful with my nail polish for a couple of hours after (you know the kind of thing - careful lifting things, touching things, going to the toilet lol etc etc) but this baby was rock solid within about 30 minutes. I couldn't believe it. This is definitely a big plus for this polish.

I love the colour, it's a nice every day sort of colour. However, after less than 48 hours of wear it is starting to wear away at the edge of my nails. I have not applied a top coat as I'm not a big fan of top coats but maybe in this case it might be useful. Admittedly I am quite rough with my nails/hands. I wash dishes without gloves (Shock Horror!!). I am amazed that I manage to keep my nails so long most of the time:)

So here's the pic:)

I love this colour and can't wait to try the others:)

The Feel Good Factor

Why do we wear makeup?

The reason I do is that I look and feel so much better with it on. Now don't get me wrong. I can leave the house without any makeup on and quite often do but when I wear it I feel so much more confident and better about myself. Shallow eh?

Why do you wear makeup?
