Current Favourite Nail Polishes

As soon as the Sun comes out, I need bright colour on my nails.  Gone are the days of deep reds and dirty greys (I am still talking about nail polish).

These are the five colours that I've been particularly loving lately.  Especially the Barry M gelly's as you can see from the well loved bottle. Cringe!

What are your favourite nail polishes right now?

I woke up this morning, the sunshine was shining, I put on my happy face

Hello you lovely bunch! The sun's been shining brightly in Norwich today so obviously, it was a perfect opportunity for a little retail therapy!

I popped in to Superdrug to peruse the new MUA nail polishes that have been controversially gossiped about on Twitter.  Most of the shades I'd hoped to have picked up were sold out though :( I guess that's what happens when they're only a £1 each. I decided to just get one - Bright Coral.  I'm going to see how I feel about this before picking any more up.  I almost felt quite guilty for Essie when I bought it as the bottle is a complete rip off.

Also picked up a Power Pout tint & balm in 'Broken Hearted' for £3 and just a standard lipgloss in 'Some Me Time' for £1.

I think it's clear to see that I'm a sucker for anything with a 'new' sticker on.  I'm hoping that the Undress Your Skin foundation, primer and shimmer highlighter will transform my face into a glowy delight like Blake Lively's! (a girl can dream right?).  The 'new' face range were on 3 for 2 so these three cost me a tenner in total.  Bit pricey for MUA so I'm expecting them to be half decent!

Ever since bloggers went crazy over the Radox Shower Creams I've wanted to try them.  Coconut Kiss smells absolutely divine, so much so that I want to drink it.  Too far Grace. Berry Burst's pretty gorge too but it's definitely not as nice as Coconut Kiss. These were £1 each in Asda. Total bargain! Picked up a dry shampoo too because a girl can never have too much dry shampoo.

The Sun was a big influence on my purchases today too.  The Natural Collection Mango & Papaya is basically sunshine in a bottle. I can't remember how much this was now! I think possibly £2.99.  You all need this in your life.

Essie Fiji is something that I've always wanted but always forgot to buy so I snatched this up as soon as I saw it.  So excited for this!

Oh my god, Chalet Girl is my favourite film ever and I don't own it.  I just love Ed Westwick! I found this in Asda for a fiver, pretty decent! Also picked up some Breath Spray and Hand Gel from Primarni because I've heard good things about them.  I needed some sunnies too so opted for these little beauties that will probably break the first time I wear them. Nice.

Everyone was wearing flip flops today so I needed some.  My boyfriend thinks the first ones look like lego and I suppose they do a little bit! I love the gold bow ones too. I always pick up a pair of flats every time I go to Primark too because they're just such good value.

I've been searching for this Dove nourishing Oil Care Conditioner ever since I had a little sample tube from the Clothes Show and fell in love with it.  It is actually amazing! Half price in Boots too, total bargain!

Waaaah this is a huge post, i'm sorry! Hope you're all having a fantastic weekend and that the Sun is shining for all of you.
