Hello ladies! I recently painted my nails in a completely different style to what I usually go for. OK..not COMPLETLY because yes that is glitter you see on my ring finger -  but hey I did try to refrain ._.

As soon as I opened up my fragrance direct package and saw how beautiful the shade Golden Sands was I needed to pop it on. Its a beautiful ‘dusty pink’ nude shade, but not just any old nude...a 90s nude, and we all know how classy that shade is! I’ve gotta admit, despite being someone who is not usually compelled to follow the trend, I am digging this whole 90s vibe ^_^

The colour ‘Antique Brooch’ which was a mini from one of the various gift sets from FD again, is SO beautiful! I wore this to my uncles wedding, three layers and I wish I had taken a clearer photo because those looks fabulous. To remove them was an experience I wouldn’t like to relive, so instead of layering it up, I just added one coat of Antique brooch onto my ring finger and voila! That little sparkle that I just can’t seem to get enough of was there!

I adore these two shades together, and I’m thinking of picking up the full size of Antique brooch which is gold glitter with flecks of pink. Ciate is a highend nail brand, with paint pots (full size) costing you £9 a bottle. However I only paid £2 for Golden Sands and although I adore the shade and the mini paint pots from previous gifts, I don’t understand why they charge double that of a highstreet polish. There was nothing special about the formula, after two and a half days (with a top coat on of course) the polish I think its 100% worth the two quid, but I would hesitate to spent £9 on a basic bottle of the stuff when Barry M and Rimmel do just as good a job, if not better.

P.S The Gorgeous necklace is from the Instagram account: @LUSH_BOWTIQUE or find them on facebook here
