Having spent as much time in the sun as the little man has allowed the last few weeks I’ve managed to get a bit of a tan. Being from Scotland what I class as a tan is likely very different from the rest of the world but basically I’m no longer a similar shade to Casper the ghost.

A few days of sunshine is all it takes to put a spring in my step and have me reaching for all the bright colours I can find. After spending a sunny afternoon in the park with my boys, I managed to tire them both out enough to steal a few minutes to paint my nails. This is now a luxury it seems.

Indeed they are, these little bad boys lasted my whole holiday and are still going strong. I picked up these pastel nail polishes specifically for my holiday, man did they look good in the sunshine. After two coats of colour I added a top coat and placed the diamonds before curing it under the UV light. I’m glad I went for the extra little design … Continue reading Diamonds are Forever
