Cute Pet Picture Friday

This one is extra super cute.
Here is Lucy the Himalayan/Persian cross cat.
She is asleep in my wheelchair.
I was in bed while this was taken. It seems Lucy thinks any time not sleeping on my chair when I am not in it is time wasted. Very cute but means I get white fur on all my clothes :(

NOTD - Zombie Wagon - China Glaze

For ages I have been meaning to get China Glaze Wagon Trail.
It is a great black-ish, goldy, bronzey shimmer.
I did a big order online and bought it.
I also got a polish I hadn't planned to but was a great surprise.
China Glaze Zombie Zest! total impulse buy, but I love it

Here is Zombie Zest over Wagon Trail in the sunlight.

Zombie Zest is like a gross-ish zombie green colour glitter in blacky/green polish.

Green is not really a colour a wear much but I really love these nails!

Cute Pet Picture Friday

Again not on Friday but a bit closer.
Today's stars are in a cute little rat pile.
These are (l-r) Marvolo, Elric and Horatio

Marvolo and Horatio are brothers.
We took them from a pet shop where they were both very sick with rat flu.

Little Elric was bought a bit later after the other guys got rid of the flu.
Having three makes them a bit less territorial.

They like going out for walks on my shoulder and going around in my handbag.

NOTD - OPI Suede Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees

Ahh look at it, So lovely and Suede-y! I really love this colour, it's depth and complexity is awesome whilst not having one million different colours in there.

It looks really granite-ish and very suede.

All these pictures were taken inside my office which has fluros overhead but a lot of natural light too. The only thing about this polish that is annoying is that the awesomeness of it doesn't last very long, maybe a few days if you go easy on it. After that the natural wear and tear on your nails buffs the suede down to a matte and eventually a bit shiny.

This picture is a blurry one(sorry) but I wanted to include it to show the other great thing about this polish. It's really multi shaded, in different light it can look nearly black or very light grey.

Despite it's short nail life I still love this polish.
It dries SOOOOO fast it's not a problem to pop on another coat every few days.
The formula goes on great too. I would love to try a matte top coat over this but don't have one.
If anyone has tried a matte top coat over OPI Suede colours I would love to know how it went.

Cute Pet Picture Friday

Okay so I know it's not Friday, but I thought I'd catch up on the cuteness instead of omiting it.

Here is my cutie cat Odin, Very relaxed on my/his office chair.
He is so relaxed for only having been with us for 2 weeks, previously been in an animal shelter for 3 months prior. naawwwwww cute!

So I am not usually a purple fan but lately my love of make up and nail polish have been making me attracted to all these colours I wouldn't have worn in the past.

Which is why I decided while at the nail salon getting my broken nails fixed that I would try OPI Ink.

This polish is from the Night Brights collection. I love My Private Jet from that collecton.
Ink is sort of a purpley blue-ish colour with a crazy pink shimmer.

It really looks very different in all different lights. I couldn't stop looking at my nails!

Sorry for the horrific iphone pics but even in this dodge picture above you can see the hints of pink shimmery goodness.

In the below picture it looks totally different, way more blue!

Try this out if you like shimmer, blue or purple. It's great.

Sorry for the iphone photography but I am trying to keep to my posting schedule even while my camera is broken. :(

Cute Pet Picture Friday

This cute little one-eyed boy is Odin. He is our new cat.
He is a seal point Himalayan. He had to have his eye cut out in December after he was dropped off at a shelter with a burst eye by people who couldn't afford to look after him.

We adopted him one week ago and he has already settled in amazingly.
He plays, eats, purrs and loves to sit on laps as well as sleeping right next to me in my bed.
His one downfall is his fish breath hahaha
