Cherry Pie : Ombre!

25 July 2011


Have wanted to try Ombre nails for such a long time now and seeing as I have so many nail polishes, I thought I'd have more than enough shades to attempt this! I'm quite happy with how they turned out but my god, how messy are my nails? They're horrible and short which means the polish goes all over my skin, not good.

Tomorrow I'm off to London for the Debenhams Christmas press show! I'm really looking forward to it as well as spending a bit of time in London with Vince. I think we're going to check out Chinatown and probably pick a spot on the tube map and go exploring! I will definitely have a post up about the trip by the end of the week! 

Over the weekend, my mum and dad were entrusted with my niece Daisy which they were very happy about. I did manage to pull her away from my mum and get some cuddles in and watch her make funny faces in her sleep. She is still so tiny and only three weeks old today but it feels like she has been with us forever!

Anyway, it's time to watch a bit of Only Fools and Horses on TV...hope you all enjoy the rest of this surprisingly sunny Monday! 

Ta ra!
