NOTD: Slytherin

Happy weekend everyone!

I’ve had a few quieter weekends recently which has been great for catching up with myself. There’s always so many things to do, not only the usual cleaning and tidying but getting to the gym, meeting friends I haven’t seen in ages and the all important Christmas shopping!

I’ve surprisingly managed to get mine done in record time this year as ideas came to me so easily, that combined with the fact I only have my parents and brother to buy for plus a little secret santa gift for a friend.

With that said, I’ve been going through my nail varnish collection and taking advantage of the darker and more wintery colours that I have. Here’s a design I came up with one Saturday night:


For this I applied 2 coats of China Glaze Smoke and Ashes from the Hunger Games collection and then painted the tips only with 2 coats of Sinful Color’s Nail Junkie



Both of these colours are ones that I adore but never wear very often. My immediate thought once finishing them is that they’re a very Slytherin’ kind of nail polish look! do you agree? I couldn’t help but call this post Slytherin after realising this!

The dark green/black base along with shimmering green and turquoise glitter go really well together and look a bit magical; maybe that’s what made me think of it!



What do you think of my nail idea? Do you like combining glitter polishes and effects like this for a new look?

I think I need to shop my stash more often, I’m forever buying new polishes and i need to control myself and get some will power. I have a whole suitcase full of them but no doubt I’ll be buying shed loads in the sales still….and that’s with them not even on sale price!

Which of the Sinful Colors polishes are your favourite? Do you buy from limited edition ranges such as the Hunger Games ones from China Glaze?

    Ooh, I really like this nail design and I'm not always in to nail art. I bet mine wouldn't look as neat as this. xx
